These photos were taken yesterday at the golden hour. I'm usually too impatient to wait for that 'perfect' time of day to take pictures, but yesterday when I got home from work I thought I'd give it a go. There's a strange peace at this time of the day in the summer. The sun isn't blazing hot down on your back, but yet you feel comfortably warm. The sky starts to turn beautiful watercolor like shades and every few steps you take you can see a firefly or two.
Since I've never really shot at the golden hour, I definitely have a hard time getting the lighting to be all the homogenous. Some of these turned out ridiculously washed out and hazy, others vibrant and sun beam filled. Oh well. Even though they're both totally different they're each beautiful in their own way ♥
I had my doctor's appointment today which went well. Although I'd like to try to work personally through these demons I have, I feel as though I've been struggling for years (admittedly) with no real progress. The doctor seemed to think so, as well, and I could certainty see the fear in his eyes when I told him about my suicidal thoughts (not that I would ever do anything, but still that they're there). My OCD medication that I've been on is supposed to aid depression and anxiety, as well, but obviously hasn't been doing a stellar job. He suggested that I try a different medicine, and a stronger dosage. I'm signed up to start going to therapy sessions again which always helps tremendously...not to mention you can bet your little fashionable booties I'll be taking advantage of the mental health councilors on the Kent campus. Things are looking up.
Today was a wonderful day because I donned a pretty, new, pastel frock I bought super on sale at ASOS. Not only was I dressed fancy smancy, but I went and saw the Katy Perry: Part of Me movie which was superb! Laugh and giggle at me all you'd like, but I love inspirational movies like that. They inspire me to go after my dreams.
Hope you all are doing swellers (is that even a word? didn't think so; I'm really weird tonight).
With much love, Lauren,
