MIA / by Kelsey Hamaguchi

I have had these photos edited and ready to post for over a month now, and I just never got around to it. I've been having anxiety attack after anxiety attack realising that summer is coming to an end, all my friends are going back to school, and I graduated four months ago and still have not found a job or internship. I'm freaking out because I don't want to get stuck working at a restaurant job any longer than necessary. It's really causing me to lose my sanity, but I can't quit because I'm trying to have a down payment to buy a car by next month. I'm kicking myself for going out so much lately, spending unnecessary money, but at the same time I feel that I should give myself a break since these past few summers were spent strictly working to save money for school. Now that I finally have a bit of a break, I'm allowing myself to have some fun, but like everything, there's always some sort of price that needs to be paid. I guess I should start by reevaluating my priorities and slowly getting back into shooting photos and finding small jobs to do here and there. I printed out some of the photos I uploaded to my blog thanks to Snapfish and their lovely penny prints, and they actually came out pretty good. I have a bunch of disposable cameras laying around, so I'm thinking of playing around with those. Just have a little problem with not having a scanner and CD drive on my laptop...I'll figure it out though. Anyway, the photos below are from spring break 2012 that I spent in Cape Cod. I'm laughing at how chubby I was that year...My face is so round in that last photo. Haha. I'm pretty much out of photos to go back and edit, which means it really is time for me to shoot again.
