If at first you don't succeed...

Today one of my favorite bloggers, Joanna Goddard of Cup of Jo, did a post on a fascinating slideshow of highly successful individuals who were once told they would be failures. After receiving my fair share of rejection letters from potential colleges in the last month, it's reassuring to know that my life doesn't have to be limited by a few roadblocks.

Resolutions: Collect Music

I used to pride myself on my iTunes collection. Spanning from classical to country to indie, I had a collection of over 14,000 songs. I remember spending Saturday mornings at Cactus Music with my dad searching for something new and unheard of and then sharing my unique finds with my friends. Somewhere along the way, however, I fell victim to radio stations like 20 on 20 and began singing along to mainstream music. I know January is almost over, but until February begins, I think I can still make a few more New Years resolutions. This year, I want to pick back up my music-finding (and sharing) hobby. Here's one of the songs that I recently found and I LOVE it. Put simply, it makes me feel happy.

Resolutions: Capture Color

In the new year, I hope to use the skills I picked up with National Geographic and use my camera more. But when I do,  I am making it my goal to capture more color. As I browse pinterest, I am always amazed by vibrant and vivid photographs. I wonder how photographers can capture such beauty, but then I remember that with the right scene and the click of my camera, I can do the same.
