Daily Habit. April 26, 2012. I shot it after double shift. Already fell asleep once checking my progress between shoots. Card is full. Battery died. Going to use what I shot, but must go to bed. Will post when I wake up. <3 <3 <3.
I started following because of your hooping photo, and then after skimming your blog, have a huge admiration for you and the blog both. Really lovely pictures! I think what got me was the "My personal self and professional self are separate" bit you said. That hit home for me. Keep on keeping on girl! Much love and respect <3
Thank you so much! I plan to keep on going. Trying to get deeper. So hard with a full time job. But I’ll do it! xo
Daily Habit. April 18, 2012. Worked a double last night. Shot when I got home. Fell asleep shooting. Fell asleep editing. Nothing great, believe me. Just a documentation of the moment. Going to have to post later after some sleep. Keep falling asleep.
In response to inspiradoen’s note regarding my acting out borderline personality disorder photo… It wasn’t meant to insult anyone or make light of a psychiatric condition. I actually have a fair amount of experience in this area, and generally, a cutter who carries a stuffed animal and sucks her thumb usually has a diagnosis of BPD. It is not a judgement, it just is. It is not to imply that it isn’t torture inside for someone with BPD. And if my expression while cutting looks smug, then I failed, because I was focused and concentrating on what I was doing…and I actually cut myself which was surprisingly not painful. So, as a suggestion…you might want to explore why you feel defensive about this. And I’m glad you like some of my other work. Hope I don’t offend you again.
Inspiradoen’s comment to my Daily Habit, April 9th, 2012, “Act” for Bochallenge:
I just threw up…
This just looks like something coming from someone who has no idea what BPD is like AT ALL. maybe you’ve read a book or wiki or some shit- but it really looks like you are making light of a very serious thing. I have a fantastic and often dark sense of humor-but seeing your smug looking face as you hold a razor to your arm makes me fucking sick. I’ve seen some of your other posts and I like your stuff usually. I’m not judging you as a person from just this one thing. My goal, rather, is to point out to you that this is inaccurate, insulting, and doesn’t at all capture the disease and what people who have it go through.
