In the water I am beautiful

Today was very up and down. I got the details of my honours project for next year in the mail and I didn't get my first preference. I won a dress in a giveaway but then the person hosting was really passive aggressive about it in their next post and it made me feel yuck (I am not going to name names). And I got a pair of shoes that I bought in the mail and they don't quite fit me right but they are absolutely beautiful. I felt most upset about the news about my honours project as this will affect me the most but I wore my slightly too big shoes around the house to cheer myself up. Everything in life has aspects which are good and bad but today I felt these differences more strongly than ever and it surprised me in a lot of unexpected ways. These photos highlight both good and bad but rather than the cliche black and white I've opted for more vivid colours. I think these make the images more emotionally charged.

  2. Sorry to hear that you didn't get your top pick for your honours project. I know it probably sounds meaningless to say right now, but hopefully it will all work out for the best eventually, and you'll end up enjoying whatever you do.

  3. Bright colours are definitely more emotionally charged. Sorry about your honours project :( but like you said, there's good and bad in everything so I hope that lots of good things will happen to make up for it x
