It’s already a month into summer! How have you been spending it? Don’t regret a single minute of it and let it go to waste!

LIVE IT! You’ll never get it back~

This morning, I saw a tweet about Taurus’ (I’m not a ridiculous believer in horoscopes, but it’s fun from time to time!)

It said, “You cannot tell a #Taurus to stay at home” (@XSTROLOGY)

I found this amusing. It’s a bit true to me personally, especially for this summer. I refuse to stay in my house and be bored and unproductive for even a single day because it’ll drive me nuts (even when I stay home, I clean or take photos). Don’t be that person who SAYS the things you want to do … but doesn’t end up doing it.

Seeing a friend of mine, SummerGal 101, write a post about her summer motivation (http://lola455567.wordpress.com/2013/05/15/summer-of-motivation/) and making a bucketlist was simply inspiring~

“What do you want to have accomplished by the end of your summer?”

Don’t think of it as a major pressure to do “extraordinary” things, but rather, have a highlight to your day, something that you enjoyed as small as it may be~

So far, I’m enjoying my summer already!

  • Working as much as possible (while looking for another job)
  • Late night days at coffee catching up with old friends for HOURS
  • Lots and lots of photoshoots
  • Going to Centre Island
  • Summer school (Photography 1, woohoo!)
  • Actually watched a hockey game
  • Set off fireworks for Victoria Day
  • Planning movie marathons
  • Planning a road trip to Alberta to visit a friend
  • Booking off vacation time for the first time in my life!
  • Explore the city
  • Create personal projects
  • Finding new places to go to
  • A bit of clubbing and partying here and there~
  • Going to high park to see the Cherry Blossoms
  • Photographing concerts with the old volunteer team
  • Working in a darkroom again for the first time in years
  • Birthday celebrations
  • Thrifting adventures

What will you do this summer?

Make a promise to yourself and keep it~

I finally got to see the cherry blossoms at high park with my good friend Jordan (http://cestnaturel.wordpress.com/)! 🙂

Does this also count as an OOTD since I went there a few days ago? My dress is from Costa Blanca!

Mwuaha! It’s halloweeeeeen~

Bring on the ghouls, monsters, witches anddddd pumpkins!

Actually, I could do without the scary since I’m a HUGE scaredy cat! However, in the spirit of Halloween  me and some friends got together to do some pumpkin carving!

Meet the crew!

Don’t be deceived!

It was POURING rain when we were picking out our pumpkins, GAH!

I also put together a fun quick 3 minute video of our pumpkin carving if you would like to have a look!

This tiny pumpkin is eating the bigger one! ONOMNOM

Meet Frankenchu; the zombie version of Pikachu!

I’m not a fan of Halloween, but I DO enjoy movies like Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas and fun Halloween songs such as: Terror Time Again, The Hex Girls, (<– From Scooby Doo movies) and This is Halloween~

This was my new attempt to show an OOTD, which was actually for yesterday, but I was too tired to upload it all. I’ve always loved seeing how people show off their outfits. This was my travelling style outfit to fare against odd things that you can come across. That and I was okay if these clothes get damaged in any way!

I had an unexpected road trip with my girl Michelle aka Michy. Originally, we were just gunna visit the badlands to see it so I could take photos (she knows I love nature and scenery, so she figured I’d want to see this. She’s pretty awesome for driving me there!). But we actually took time to drive off into several different scenic routes that she knew of.

Too bad the weather kinda sucked as it followed us CONTINUOUSLY.

But minus getting REALLY hungry (we were ready to stop at the farms we passed and eat the animals -_-), finding weird paths (and weird things), becoming semi-lost (oh the joy of having an iPhone that couldn’t find any service for hours), we had a lot of laughs and a lot of fun. This is something that I would do again, heck we always knew we WOULD have a road trip together!

The badlands. It made us think of The Lion King elephant graveyard, a dragon, and the setting of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

This little guy was quite a jumpy one. Good thing we didn’t run into bigger ones.

Darn fenced off areas! We saw a waterfall .. but it was out of our reach, no matter HOW far we walked.

Overall, it was a pretty eventful day~

I’m sure you’ve all experienced that movie moment in real life, right? Where that moment feels like something directly out of a big production film, so perfect it’s almost unreal. It’s like the setting was created as a set specifically for this moment, and the cameras are secretly hidden, filming what you do, your movements, emotions and all.

This is just yet another reason why I enjoy taking photo’s so much. You really never know what’s in store for you! The possibilities are endless, and that just leaves so much room for creativity, spontaneity and potential! This is one of my favourite photos of this trio because of the natural expressions and the poster-like feel. Black and white was just a beautiful plus to give it even more sophistication~

I have the most beautiful (and handsome aha) friends in my life. I’m glad they are so willing to let me take their pictures and volunteer to let me have a couple photoshoots with them! They really aren’t afraid of my camera, so what more can I ask for?
