Balance of Thoughts

I'm finding myself itching to write about so many different things on this journal- friends, spiritual journey, photography work, desires & frustrations. Each time I begin writing about any of the prior, I find myself hesitant. I consider all of the different people who would be reading my work, all of the potential misunderstandings/misinterpretations of my writing, and the balance between privacy and appropriate disclosure. I don't fear judgement. I don't obsess over glorification, either- I just want to do it right. I want to appropriately share with the audience I have. As a photographer and writer, I do have a lot of freedom and I've come to realize that both flexibility and freedom ironically reduce content output; limitations definitely have their perks. With this said, I am thankful to be a student at the UIUC. There's a narrow availability of inspiration, which gives me opportunity to go deep in the good things here. Thankful for the reminder before another week of academic pressure. I hope to start pumping out my re-release work by the end of this week. Thank you, all.

ps- my friends & I used nose strips for some facial cleansing (lol). Just wanted to explain the photo gallery.
