okay so it’s rare that i get a crush on someone (i repeat, rare), like it happens maybe every other year or something because if you know me at all i hate everyone (not really, but what i’m trying to say is that it’s hard for me to really like someone as more than a friend). but then when i do get a crush on someone i fast forward a million steps and imagine we’re already dating/making out/etc… and i get all giggly or whatever so when i see them in person i expect that to happen but obviously it doesn’t and i get super disappointed and needy.
and you’re probably thinking “valerie, why don’t you just tell that person you have a crush on him” but let me have you know it’s scientifically proven that 99.02% of the time my feelings are not reciprocated. ughhhh #complain #rant #whatareboys

Argh this is blurry but it’s the first color negative photo I took with my 4x5 camera. At least the colors are nice :)

Happy New Year’s!!! I’ve decided that New Year’s is my favorite holiday. You get a chance to start all over. I hope that 2014 will be filled with many blessings for all of you.
