So, I have officially been working at Urban Outfitters for a little over three weeks as a part time summer job. It’s been pretty good so far. It’s kinda fun to work at a place that plays Drake and Beirut both in the same day. Not to mention cute clothes and house-ware shit that I really wanna buy for myself/apartment with my sweet employee discount. 
I guess the only problem is that two different employees have said that I am too friendly and talkative with customers. Like, wtf?! Isn’t that the point of customer service? I’ve never had a retail job before where that was a problem. Guess I am not hard-core enough for them. Oh well…

My mom flew into New York Wednesday night and she just left tonight to go back to OR and I am just so sad.
I actually really loved having my mom here. She spoiled me so much. We did a lot of shopping and I got a lot of cute new clothes, and we ate at my favorite restaurants, and she got to see my school when she came to my reception for my Human Canvas show, and she got to meet some of my closest friends here. And ahhhh, I loved showing her my artsy world here in NY. I wish she didn’t have to leave so soon. It was nice to have her around. I’m already feeling lonely and homesick.

Wow! So many of my family members are flying into NYC for my solo exhibition at school, which is happening in just a few weeks! I am so excited for them to be here in the city with me, and for them to see my work at the best it’s ever been, and to just be able to spend time with them! I feel like such a lucky girl. So many good things are happening right now, and I’m glad my family gets to be here for some of it.

A very famous and popular (photography) website contacted me today about featuring and interviewing me for my Human Canvas Blending In project!!!! I am so excited for this, and all the doors it may open! 
It feels incredible to know that I am being recognized for my hard work and that potentially millions of people will get to see it! Stay tuned!

My photo seminar teacher just sent me this e-mail tonight, and I am literally almost in tears right now. I am so lucky to have him as an instructor. Thank you Seth, for these kind words and being in my life.

I shoot new photos for my photo seminar class over the weekend. I’m kinda nervous to show it to my class, since it’s more dark and personal than my usual work.
