So I made a FB post today about my new Starbucks name (see photo below) and this guy says “Oh you support genocide by drinking Starbucks.” And I was so taken aback that I was like gosh I hate you Facebook. You’ve changed. People use to be more fun when it came to commenting on posts with responses like “Hey Ryan, that’s really funny how they put ‘The Situation’ on your Starbucks cup instead of your real name!” And “You are so funny, Ryan, you should be a comedian!”
What if I posted a picture of a cat and then someone writes a nasty comment about me posting photos of cats is like supporting child labor in Indonesia? What if I posted a photo of my dinner and someone writes a nasty comment about how eating pho contributes to global warming? I am just frustrated with how Facebook has become nowadays. Goodbye to posting anything on Facebook!!
Still spending the week in Southern California with my family. I can’t believe it’s so warm and sunny. It’s a nice break from the gloom and cold of San Francisco.
I’m so excited to head back home to Southern California for the holidays! It’s my favorite time of the year (except the cold part).
I haven’t really announced it yet, but I am beyond THRILLED to be a part of the Charlotte Russe team. No, not as a photographer as everyone has assumed but in marketing.
Counting my blessings. This is a sweet ending to a bitter year for me.
About a year ago around late October 2011, I found Nicole’s portfolio online. Maybe it was Facebook or Model Mayhem. I was supposed to meet up with her at Cal Poly Pomona since my family lives in Diamond Bar, but I cancelled my meeting with her. I think I was having a really bad day and had tons of errands to do for the family, but nevertheless we kept in touch for the next 12 months. We finally had our first shoot ever after waiting for so long. And of course, we might as well make the most out of it, for who knows when we might shoot again? The result? Thirteen looks in less than 12 hours. After the first round of shots, I knew she was going to be my new favorite muse!
Here is a preview of the first look.
Pardon the dust. I’ve been so busy with New York Fashion Week for ASTONISH that I haven’t had time to update my personal blog. But since you’re reading this, you might as well check out the craziness at www.astonishworld.com! Streetstyle + Fashion + Backstage + Runway + Fashion Icons and Celebrities. What more can you ask for?
