Hello, I am back!

For my followers who have jumped on this page here’s a little about me:

I’m Mariah Texidor, some call me Mo’. I am determined to live each day seeing the bright side! I am from the boogie-down, Bronx in NYC, but currently reside in Rochester, NY for college. I attend RIT studying the thing I am continuously being inspired by, photography. I am super passionate and love inspiring people to live their lives! I do that by talking and being open with others, as well as talking about my process in my photography, which is often a self-involved journey.

I started blogging this summer in hopes to track my first summer entering the world of adulthood and in my profession of photography. I had a lot of goals, and while not all of them got accomplished, it was a hell of an inspiring summer! So NOW, I want to share with the world my life through senior year in college. Basically, I want to share and show that I am another person trying to live life, and I will be as honest as possible in the struggles and accomplishments that occur from here on out. 

So, if you’re wondering what is the point of me taking this space online to go on about my life, I’ll tell you. My blog is for me to look back on and remember the good, the bad, the ugly- in a positive and honest light in the end. It is for other people who may feel they are the only ones who live joyously, but feel bad when they are not ok or having bad days. For those who make art about another dimension of themselves, express themselves in more than one way.

With all that being said, something I am very proud of is my recent project I am working on. It is in progress, but it has been pushing me in new ways both in terms of making my work, thinking about it, and looking at other work for inspiration. I am excited about all the things I am learning and proud to be piecing it all together in different forms: making a book and workflow for a gallery, developing my fine printing workflow, creating books/learning new binding techniques, and making images that utilize my favorite thing: light.

So, if there is one message I want people to get out of my blog is that everything happens for a reason. The things you learn, the people you meet, the way you feel, it all happens for a reason. It isn’t always important or necessary to know what the reason is, so I encourage everyone to make your decisions worth while! Create a life that makes you feel proud of yourself and love who you are each day.

I will be posting for a week straight which will be tough with my schedule, but I will in part of a challenge. 

How will YOU enjoy today? :)

xx,
Mariah
