Guys: I went to Colorado last week and it was fun. And unfortunately, half of my travel photos are gone.
When I got the news that my boyfriend and I left the memory card that contained a few hundred photos on the plane, I immediately curled up on my couch and straight up couldn’t bring myself to do anything for a few hours. And trust me, I had a lot to do last night (like packing for NYFW). The content I worked on all last week? Boom. Half of it is gone. And it’s not like I can just hop back on a plane to Colorado and reshoot those images.
Despite me losing half my vacation photos, it’s not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things. Seriously. Hurricane Harvey survivors still need your support, there are wildfires in the second largest city in the U.S., and we have another big storm hitting Florida any minute now, oh and yeah — we have to #DefendDACA. I have to be honest: I’m not in the mood really to travel to NYFW today with all of these pressing issues we face in our country at the moment, but I do have professional commitments I need to honor, so the show must go on.
I know that sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in our privilege. I’m trying to get better at not letting my first world problems get the best of me.
