I'm Sorry

Apparently tumblr is more exciting, so I have decided to create a blog there where more people are more prone to read it. I am sorry blogspot, and I'm sorry Samer :/

Thursday, February 12, 2009


Thank God It's Thursday! Thursday at 5:50 is when my weekend starts, and this week it started at about 4, which was amazing. Granted, I probably failed my Modern Totalitarianism exam, but it's okay because this weekend is going to be awesome!

As for yesterday, well, it was so beautiful outside (Sunny and 62!) that I just did not have time to write. I woke up, opened the windows (still no light, of course), and knew it was going to be a good day. I went to Mr. Lyle Rexer's critique class from 12-3. Sometimes I wish he actually critiqued our work instead of comparing it to other photographer's. I don't care what photographer my work reminds you of, I just want to know if it's fucking good or not. Excuse my french, haha.

When I got home, I made one of my roommate's go outside with me. We walked to Union Square where I preceeded to go to Forever 21 to return my god awful leopard outfit to buy something cute for the Stoplight Valentine's Day Dance Party SVA is having tonight. More about that in a few though. After Forever 21, I met up with my friend John and his two friends. We walked around and went into stores, of course ending up in Guitar Center for a good hour while they played all of the instruments. I resisted a Taco Bell visit by just sitting there watching them eat, and then drooled all over the Photography books in Barne's and Noble's. They then came over to my dorm where we jammed on Rock Band for a while. 10:30 rolled around and of course had to watch the Demetri Martin show on Comedy Central. I laughed the whole 30 minutes, haha.

Okay, so this Stoplight Party. We're having it at a hotel and it's fun because if you're single, you wear green, yellow if it's complicated, and red if you're taken. It should be a lot of fun, and Kayla and I are going to look good in our green outfits ;) haha!

As for this weekend, I may not be around much to update, so I'm warning you now. Tomorrow at some point I'm heading to Jersey to spend the night. I'll be back Saturday late afternoonish but then will probably be busy partying :P

I hope everyone has a great weekend and a Happy Valentine's Day! Even if you're single, go out and have fun! <3

Day 3, And Still Going Strong

This is probably a record for me. I actually feel good about this. Before I begin, I'd like to thank Samer for blogging about me today. He posted photos of his friends' photography and of course, I was there :] I would also like to thank him for the relationship advice he gave me. OH! And he stood up for me during an online fight (yes, it's as ridiculous as it sounds).

This morning was my weekly dosage of Photoshop for the Mentally Challenged class. Thank whatever god exists that I did not have to listen to a lesson on layers or masks or anything else that I already know about the oh so wonderful program. I worked on a self portrait, and as soon as it is done, I will post it. Then, as I was sitting there waiting for a print to come out of the printer, I realized that I had studio class also and that I needed to shoot something. So of course I break out my phone and text my roommate, Kayla, and ask her if she'll come to studio with me. She says yes, and we have something going. All that was left was to think of something to do.

I was thinking of doing studio shots, more fashion, of the different "decades". We started off today with the 40's. Here are a few shots. If you click them, they go to my flickr!

Well, that's the end fokes, hope everyone has a great night! :]

P.S. This made me laugh a lot because I'm not a religious person, and neither is this person obviously:

So it's 11:15, and I just remembered about this silly little blog. You were right Samer, I have nothing exciting to write about. My day started as my alarm woke me up at 8am. Since my room is in between buildings, I get NO LIGHT in my room, so when my alarm goes off, it's like WTF WHY AM I WAKING UP NOW. Needless to say, it sucks.

Photo on Assignment is first up on Monday mornings, where today I learned how to properly set up a musician's promo shot. I will be taking some actor's headshots for next week, which I will most definitely post here. My teacher, Sardi, also explained to the class this morning that it's only okay to have sex to get a job SOMETIMES. Hahaha, she's so funny.

Class ends at 12, and since my second class doesn't start until 6, I sit at my computer and twiddle my thumbs. I know I could've done something, but I just couldn't. I also took an hour nap tonight in class while my teacher was showing us a boring film from god knows how long ago.

My Monday night ends with Heroes. It was fairly exciting tonight, but it's still the beginning so nothing CRAZY has happened yet.

So the title of my blog tonight is FML. For all you mentally challenged internet lovelies, it stands for Fuck My Life. A new friend of mine has just sent me this website, and now it will become a new addiction. is the website, and I suggest you check it out if you need a few laughs.

Tomorrow I shall have some pictures, but I will leave you with this one because it's just beautiful:

Blog Attempt #2

Why hello there. My name is Ashley and this is my blog. I should also tell you that this is my second time making a blog. The first one, unfortunately, was a failed attempt. I have difficulties updating something like this every day. Since this is my first entry, I should probably tell you a little about myself. I am 20 years of age and am from Northern New Jersey. I live, however, on the lovely island of Manhattan where my school (The School Of Visual Arts), is located. I am a photography major, and you will find out soon enough, that I like to take photos of people. I hope to one day do fashion photography, but I'm keeping all options open at this point because our economy is down the drain.

In other news, my roommate Kayla and I did a cute little photoshoot on our rooftop yesterday. Last year we did shoots all the time, but this year has been a little hectic so we haven't had much time. Below are some of the pictures that I took. If you click on each of the pictures it takes you to my flickr.
