Being passionate about something, or someone, its an amazing feeling. Where your mind is completely focused , stuck, and can’t think of anything else. It feels as though time just does not exists when you are consumed by doing the thing you love.

So, even though I am graduating with a Legal Studies degree, once I graduate, I plan to find something in fashion and photography to pursue as a career.
Last week, after an early morning working on school, then having a full 8-hour shift, I had an evening photoshoot. Once the photoshoot was over, after such a great time meeting the model and taking some great shots, while I had had a busy day, I couldn’t wait to edit the photos so I stayed up until 2 in the morning editing the photos and sending them over to the model. I loved them and she loved them as well!
However, the next day, I did not have anything going on which was perfect since I had to write an essay for a class which was due tomorrow. I had some of it done…
