Liberty and Cameras

High Low Hem Shirt - Top Shop // Shorts - J. Crew 

I'm back and a rising senior in high school.  A year from now, I will be a rising freshman in college. And I'm terrified.  We've been college touring around the East Coast and the fact that I'm going to be a freshman in college is becoming all too real.  It probably seems silly to all of you, but if I had the option between being Wendy or a lost boy in Peter Pan, I would be a lost boy. To be honest, my biggest fear in life is becoming an adult and college is that one step closer to my biggest fear.  I think it's the instability that scares me. That lack of control.  But there are few things in life that you can't avoid, one of which is the future.  What I've realized is that, as much as I try to fight the future from happening, it will always happen.  With that realization, I am going to stay positive throughout my future.
Whatever happens.

These few photos and miniature outfit post are photos from my summer so far.  I've been to Illinois to visit Northwestern, DePaul, and Loyola, as well as New York to visit Barnard, NYU, Vassar, Fordham, and Sarah Lawrence.  All of which are wonderful schools and I'd be lucky to be accepted into any of them. Throughout the summer I'll be visiting Maine, Vermont, and Massachusetts to check out the college sene around the East Coast.  While we were in New York we embraced our inner tourist, visited the Statue of Liberty and watched a couple musicals, Evita and Anything Goes.  I've been able to experiment and play around with my Holga cameras with my older sister, which has been super fun.  All in all, my summer is off to a great start.
How has your summer been?

love always,
Annika

  10. Great post, and I know your feelings - it seems quite hard to become totally an adult, paying all the taxes, trying to be in control of everything, managing all your finances... But at the same time, I'm so happy I'm not the teenager I once were, and that I can make my own choices in life and so on.

    I love the photos in this post, they're happy and full of life - just like you must be.

    Have lovely weekend! xoxo ♥

  64. It is understandable for you to feel fearful considering the big change from high school to college. Keep your head up, you'll see that it isn't as bad as you think. In fact, college was probably the best years of my life! Cute pictures btw :)
