Insane Saturday | Pt. II

It just so happened that as I was hanging out at the skate park with the music video crew in Raleigh, that a person I had messaged early that morning (about a photoshoot for my LGBTQ series) had gotten back to me. Guess where they lived!

Downtown Raleigh!

This person was a female to male transgender person (with such a beautiful soul, might I add). We talked for about an hour and a half about pretty much everything you can talk about with a stranger (and actually way more than that). When we decided to depart, as soon as I got in my car, I decided to call some friends in Greensboro that I hadn’t seen in a while. Lo and behold… they were about to have dinner in Durham! I meet them there and a great time is had by all.

I then head back to Greensboro (finally!) and I get a call… my friend is having a party for his birthday. You’ll never guess where I headed next. Needless to say, I was pretty exhausted the next day. And to think… I was arguing with myself all morning about whether or not I should have gone to Carrboro that morning.

How my Saturday could have gone:

Option A:
1. Stay in bed and never leave bed.

2. Wallow in my self pity and loathing.

Option B:
1. Be in a music video for The Love Language (and shoot behind the scenes stills)

2. Photograph two members of the LGBTQ community of 4×5 Ektachrome film in their homes.

3. Hang out with my really good friends who are moving to Portland, Oregon in a few days.

4. Be exhausted at my (very drunk) friend’s birthday party.


Glad I went with Option B. 🙂
