I had the honor of photographing Slava Rubin, CEO of Indiegogo.com earlier this summer. Pretty sweet dude his website gives starving artists a platform to not be starving artists.
I’m finding enjoyment in creating video diaries with my GoPro.

Kekeke starving artist diet > stretch $15 worth of groceries into 4 meals! I shall not die!
In order to get my abs back to where they were before the hot mess that June was… I gotta be good with my diet. Dinner today is a sweet potato-garbanzo bean-onion-kale wrap seasoned with citron, pepper, and rosemary.
The nice thing too is that I spent about $15 at the grocery store and the ingredients were enough to make a meal plus 3 extras for later

Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.

a little reminder/note to myself
My name is Melly and today I’m explodingly happy. Happy in the way that I pretty much spent a good hour dancing and singing in my room. I can’t stop smiling. I just feel awesome right now. …and dare I say sexy? :O So what dramatic change has occurred to simulate this rush of joy? Absolutely nothing! Nothing has changed, but oddly I feel at complete with life. Maybe I’m finally growing into my own skin? But really I just wanted to write this overly joyous fist-pumping note to myself because I rarely feel like this. And this feeling is absolutely amazing. I’m happy. I think I’m happy because I feel like I’m moving to a good place in life where the people around me are a solid foundation. I’m overcoming my fear or judgement. I’m shifting my identity away from conforming labels. Rarely does my over analytical ADHD brain allow me to focus on being alive in the moment. Normally my mind drifts off into the past and forward into the future. Rarely am I here in the now. My past is my history but it doesn’t determine who I will be. And my future is out of my hands. Only in the now do I have the choice and power to shift my perspective and embrace the journey for what it is. I’m happy. Feels awesome.
Sidenote: Turning off my personal Facebook account and cutting toxic people out of my life is probably the best thing I’ve done for myself in a long time.
Let’s go exploring!
