There are parallels between my mother’s life and my own

I’m shifting my focus, changing up my process. I will gather all the photos of one person regardless of decade and create a timeline. But what about the other people in that person’s life? Where do they go? Why am I doing this anyway? There is something I need from all of this. Maybe the clenching in my gut is a sign to keep going. To find the right path. I hope there’s juicy dirt or ridiculousness hiding for me.

The Eight Nudes You’ll Probably Send/Receive

nudes, Post, sexting

BARE IT ALL

**This article is discussing the exchange of
explicit photos ONLY in circumstances between consenting adults**

The nude has been a ubiquitous part of human existence for *literally millenia* but in the 21st century, bae is unlikely to send you a sculpted marble likeness of their junk to get you in the mood. For the modern adult armed with a smartphone and a front-facing camera, encountering a nude selfie or two (hundred) is far more likely, so here are eight varieties of nude that you’ll probably take, send or receive in your lifetime.

1. The Feelin’ Yoself

You don’t know what it is, but damn you’re lookin good today. Is it the fresh lingerie you just bought yourself? The morning sun hitting your skin juuuust right? Maybe you just look this fine every. Single. Day. Who cares, you’ve gotta capture that feeling: you take numerous mirror shots of…

In April 2018, I did two test shoots with two friends:

The first with Sofia, an exchange student studying in Edinburgh from Chicago. I had some portrait ideas I wanted to explore in the New Town of Edinburgh and Dean’s Village.

The second set of images features my close friend Shawna who runs the lovely photography blog documenting her adventures in Edinburgh and beyond. We visited the beautiful cherry blossoms that grew in The Meadows.

Holding On

Lifestyle, Philosophy

Puking Rainbows

P_20171012_175155.jpg

I have a habit of holding onto things. Be it a trinket from my pristine toys, or a fresh yet old cardigan that, doesn’t really matter, still fits me or not.
I go to streets and often stare blankly at the spots that once had my impression there with other people.

I take screenshots of (sometimes sparkling, sometimes saddening) quotes on life and like to keep them with me. Not that I’ve the idea of reposting them, but to again feel the energy they radiate.

I hold onto books, pages, their words. Hence, I keep folding the corners of their pages and underlining sentences whenever I find something beautiful.

Sadly, I hold onto people as well. Everytime I meet someone new, my conscience books them a different place into my cerebral remembrance and sometimes in my heart; In all those untraveled paths for everyone to walk all over and leave…

Meet Andrea

Andrea Gainous Design

Hello, I’m Andrea. Welcome to my blog for MKTG 3080.

I am from Cairo, Georgia and am currently a senior at Valdosta State University. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Cody. We have two dogs Kat & Knox and are expecting our first child in early July 2019. I am also the Co-Youth Director at Camilla United Methodist Church.

I graduated from Cairo High School in 2011 and have lived in Georgia for most of my life. After attending community college, my husband and I spent a few years at a school of ministry called The Ramp in Hamilton, Alabama. Once we were done with ministry school, we decided to move back to Georgia so that I could finish up my degree and he could work with his family’s well drilling business. He is the other Co-Youth Director at Camilla United Methodist Church.

Some of the things I…
