    "you work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. if you haven’t found it get, keep looking. don’t settle. as with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. and, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. so keep looking until you find it. don’t settle." -steve jobs

  5. love.

    "have you ever been in love? horrible isn’t it? it makes you so vulnerable. it opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. you build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life.. you give them a piece of you. they didn’t ask for it. they did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. love takes hostage. it gets inside you. it eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should just be friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. it hurts. not just in the imagination. not just in the mind. it’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. i hate love."

  6. addy.

    photographed miss addy darnell’s senior photos today. when addy was 8 years old, she was diagnosed with wilson’s disease; a disease that damages both the liver and the nervous system. things were fine until earlier this year when addy’s health rapidly declined. nearly two months ago, addy received a new liver. 

    addy is spunky, fun, and sweet. hard to believe this little ball of life was in the hospital just a few short months ago. thanks for the great time and laughs today, addy. cheers to good health and graduating high school!
