my year in review.

January 24, 2013 § 3 Comments

my 2012 collage.

Oh hey! Forgive me for my absence. A lot has happened in the last few weeks and I felt it appropriate to put the blogging on pause. Let’s just say a big part of my life changed, and unfortunately not in a good way. 2012 was an amazing year, but it just didn’t end well so I’ve been struggling with this post for quite some time. Every photo and associated memory, in one way or another, reminds me of this part of my life, and the absence of that constant is something I’m still wrestling with.

The first 363 days, however, are ones that I’m incredibly grateful for. I continued to pursue photography, completed a successful internship and got a full-time promotion, got into two master’s programs, took a trip to Jamaica, accepted my offer to USC, marked my 24th, entered my first photo contest, celebrated this blog’s first birthday, took a trip to Boston, roadtripped down the California coast, broke in my new LA apartment with the help of my two best friends, became a student again, welcomed lots of new friends into my life, got accepted to a program to work abroad this summer, and finished my first semester with straight A’s. I’m so, so thankful for all of this and to the people who have supported me and stood by my side {you know who you are!}

And last, but certainly not least, I am so thankful for you, my loyal and wonderful readers. Thank you for encouraging me to keep photographing, writing and growing Eyes/Ears/Mouth+Lens. This blog wouldn’t be what it is without you.

Love Lauren

  • Well even though you are a Leafs fan maybe I’ll start reading this blog every once in awhile. Or every time they lose (so I shall be here frequently! Haha). Glad to hear most of the year went so well. It is hard getting back into student life but always nice to do it in a sunny part of the world! I did the same in Australia. Hopefully 2013 is even better!

  • I’m sorry the year didn’t end on a high note for you, but the rest of it sounds fantastic!! So many fabulous things to be proud of! Cheers to 2013!!

I really love comments.
