A Second to Breathe

Well, that was intense.

Last week, I finally, finally finished the first edition of the book I’ve been spending all semester on, working late into the night for days on end to finally click “order book” on Blurb at 02:17 one wonderful, exhausting night. I created an ambient video/sound installation project. I got the internship I wanted. I bought round-trip airfare for my next adventure. I got hired to photograph for a magazine. The week ended by dancing the night away at RISD’s annual Take A Break concert. The next day, I decided to buckle down and run my first-ever half marathon. It hurt, but it was just pain, and somehow pain seemed utterly inconsequential – because the book is done. I can breathe again, for the moment.  It won’t last, but it’s wonderful.

Here are some Instagram shots from the past weeks! Enjoy.
