Pipe Dream #8: To Not Be “That Chick With The Camera”

I don’t like labeling people. Besides an occasional Myers-Briggs test that lets me totally put you in a box, I strive to avoid it. In case you were wondering, I am an ISFJ. Feel free to read the profiles here and here and judge me accordingly. I won’t mind. I already know I’m weird. :]

One label that I really want to avoid, though, is the “girl with the camera” stigma. I don’t want to be that girl that is always snapping pictures and doesn’t stop to really breathe the air, or appreciate beauty or have a real conversation with someone. If, amazingly, I’m doing something social on the weekend, say, I want people to remember my face and not the lens of a D90.

On the other hand, I really like remembering where I’ve been, what I’ve done, and who I’ve seen. Some moments deserve to be captured, even if it means stepping out of real-time life for a minute.

Here are a few snapshots of my past few weekends. Oh, but I live a merry life filled with galas and society! Sort of.

A few of my cutie pies from study.

Tegan’s birthday cupcakes for Anna. Sew pritty.

Mini gingerbread house-making day.

A view from the path. So much potential.

I’ll try and keep myself on the DL,

    Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to grasp so much about this, such as you
    wrote the e book in it or something. I feel that you can do with some percent to force the
    message house a bit, however instead of that, this is magnificent blog.
    A great read. I’ll certainly be back.
