This week is full of changes. Some of them good, some of them painful.

To start off with, I'm getting the opportunity to do a real professional engagement shoot tomorrow through Woodland Wedding Photography, my other part-time job. I'm both excited and stressed about it. The girl who I'm doing it for, I've never met, and has 0 ideas & 0 suggestions, making me not only the photographer but the idea man & the prop master.... needless to say, I don't need the additional worry.

On top of it all, she chooses the last day I'll be able to see one specific person for a few months while he's doing summer sales till September. I haven't blogged about him mostly just I don't jinx myself but also because I don't want to seem like that girl who's obsessive, desperate & pathetically twitterpated. The fact of the matter is simply this:

I'm gonna miss him. A lot.

But of course, I don't admit it nor tell him this because I'm too afraid and far too prideful & stubborn to admit I'm getting a little attached.

As the days are winding down & we're spending our last few nights together it's slowly starting to dawn on me that I'm really going to have a hard time saying goodbye.

I already have a hard time saying goodbye anyways, to family members, friends, roommates. But when it's a guy that I really care for, it's even harder.

I've been refusing to bring it up on purpose, but I've been losing sleep over what's to come. What happens next? What'll become of "us"? Is there even an "us" to begin with? Is it all in my head?

Let's just hope I don't completely lose it & start crying Thursday night. The last thing I want is to come off as a psychotic, whimpy, whiney little girl.

I'm Batman

This post is dedicated to a particular goofy, spaz-oid black cat how occasionally spends the night in our house. His name is Batman :)

Now I'm usually a lover of all animals, but I typically prefer dogs to cats. And big dogs, I might add. But for whatever reason, my roommates & I have fallen in love with this dog-like feline. Plus he's just so photogenic anyways! Heres' what I've come up with so far.

Leave love!

My favorite song as of late :)

So, I realize that I don't want to risk sounding cheesy or lame or completely girly in this post. But what the heck! I am cheesy, I am lame sometimes & I am a full-fledged bonafide girl! & darn proud of it!

So recently, with this past month & a half my experiences have led me to love a certain song by Lady Antebellum entitled Just a Kiss and another song called Kiss Me Slowly by Parachute.

With all of my relationships, they have always gotten super physical super fast. This song tenderly reminds me that it's okay to take things slow. That I can say no when I'm feeling pressured to give more than I feel comfortable with.

I have started to realize that I'm slowly becoming a paranoid scaredy-cat when it comes to relationships and actually committing to something that could be very worthwhile. But with these two songs, I'm reminded to take a leap of faith, and as long as I'm watching where I'm falling, that it's okay to fall in love. Even if it is for the 5th or 6th time :) So enjoy these two songs that are the soundtrack of my life as of right now.

I've never opened up to anyone
So hard to hold back when I'm holding you in my arms
We don't need to rush this, let's just take it slow...

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
No I don't wanna mess this thing up
I don't wanna push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright 
With just a kiss goodnight

And it's hard to love again
When the only way has been,
When the only love you know
Just walked away
If it's something that you want
Baby you don't have to run
You don't have to go

Just stay with me,
Baby stay with me.
Well I'm not sure what this is gonna be
But with my eyes closed all I see 
Is the sky line through the window
The moon above you & the streets below
Hold my breath as you're moving in
Taste you lips & feel your skin
When the time comes
Baby don't run
Just kiss me slowly....

xoxo Megatron

The Writer

So my critical self may point out that her mouth & smile are a little weird but I am in love with this song! It's the epitome of everything I love about art and music all wrapped up into one. <3 It's called the Writer by Ellie Goulding & it's beautiful.

Enjoy lovelies!

So, I've been thinking a lot about fear vs. faith. Recently, this week I've had two very good friends who have had fear and have turned to me for words of encouragement.

There is a reason why the title of this blog is Fearless. I've had many examples of fearlessness in my life. My sister is probably the best example I can think of. Her panic disorder causes her to be scared for no apparent reason, yet she is the most bold and brave woman I've ever known. It's a conundrum. A contradiction. But she has been an example to me that you can overcome fear even if you cannot control where that fear comes from.

These two dear girls that I love so much have reminded me about taking a leap of faith. One of them is fearful of the consequences of moving out to Utah because she's comfortable in Georgia. It's all she's ever really known, yet she yearns and desires for an adventure. For a new start.

The other is nervous of putting herself in a potentially compromising situation. She may risk losing her pride & getting hurt from a person she cares about deeply.

I don't think it's a coincidence that my own fears came to mind as I was pondering their situations. Recently, I've had fear of the future and fear of letting myself open up to someone, fear of possibly falling in love. Typically I try and cover up these fears by careful apathy and listlessness or by my false fearless bravado.

Yet I was thinking about these two remarkable women and myself, and trying to figure out how to help assuage their own fears, several quotes and song lyrics came to mind.

The first is a poem by Sarah Williams:
Though my soul may set in darkness,
it will rise in perfect light.
I have loved the stars too fondly
to be fearful of the night.

The second is a song by Christina Perri called A Thousand Years:

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I'm afraid
To fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt
Suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer...

And the last thing I thought of was a quote from Harry Potter:
It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.

What I've learned is through it all, fear has never gotten any person anywhere. If anything, it is a paralyzer. A venom from a poisonous spider or snake. If we constantly live our lives fearing, we'll never be able to explore new people, discover new things and enjoy new opportunities. I have learned that I'd much rather love more, and fear less than hurt less and fear more. I don't care what the future brings, it doesn't matter. I'll meet it head on when it does come. I'm not going to be afraid of the question, "What if...?"

So whether I get my heart broken or move from job to job 1,000 more times, I'm counting on the 1,001 or 1,002nd time of getting something right.
