Ohhhh my goodness, it's been forever since I've posted anything! And well, a lot has happened since then... Two of the best are that I've presented my BFA Exhibition, and I got to go to Florida for Thanksgiving break! It was a much needed break that couldnt have come at a more perfect time.
I rode on a train from Norman, OK to Dallas. It was my first time on a train, but thanks to the new friend I made, it definitly wont be my last. Her name is Ms. Cynthia and we instantly clicked. I felt like she had been a friend of mine for a while and this was us using every second we could to reconnect. We discovered that we had the same train back, and thought it'd be great to find eachother and sit together again. I was getting a little discouraged when I didnt find her in the Ft Worth train station, but I found her as we were boarding and I couldnt have been happier. She continued to tel me all about her life, including a fun lunch group she goes out with, her photographer husband & family, and the various volunteering positions she's held throughout her life. She was inspiring and very easy to get along with. I saw no judgement in her eyes and loved me for who I was, even though she just met me.
I even got her address to hopefully send her a Christmas card and visit her in the near future :)
More Florida photos to come later!
