A few months ago, I got to shoot with Shevaun from She Visuals – a high school friend and talented photographer. It never ceases to amaze me to see how far people have come since secondary school graduation. I sincerely cherish the time I was able to reconnect with Shevaun, being re-inspired by her work that seems to come so effortlessly. Shevaun’s photography captures what qualities I love and look for. Candid, moody, artistic, film-like, story-telling. With her natural talent and easy-going nature, we were able to shoot outfit photos that truly reflected what I would wear in that context. I had every intention of getting this up earlier, a post suited more for the cooler months. I guess with Melbourne, you just never know when a light (or heavy) coat could come in handy.

A nonsensical update.
Unfortunately, as life would have it, I have been unable to spend more time on creative outlets such as this blog. When I do have free time, I am either lethargic, unmotivated or uninspired. Either that, or I feel the need to do extra work and stay even more ahead of schedule for my lesson planning – though I’m slowly figuring out that this becomes redundant as I find myself revising over the prep I had done the other week. Speaking of working in my free time, I don’t think I’ll ever get around to publishing my research in a journal as my access to resources has been completely cut off (due to not being a Monash student anymore – this is when you really appreciate how much free access to information we had as a student). I am completely annoyed with this, despite knowing that I can’t have possibly expected myself to work on a journal submission first year out on a new job and in deep water. Big, fat, URGH.
Term 2 holidays is in sight – my goal is to try and edit my research paper so that it is publish-worthy. I’m 99% sure it won’t happen because I have no resources. But I also want to be 99% sure that I gave it my best shot regardless.
I need to give myself a break.
