Hello! My name is Sarah and I am a photographer studying at Rochester Institute of Technology in New York. I'm originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and I love taking photos of people, though I'll take photos of anything interesting.

Soooo… the ladies at work are talking about how awesome college was and how they had the best time of their life and they miss it.
What is it that happens between college and the work force that makes us lose our ability to feel free and happy? I guess it’s probably the whole getting a “real job” thing. Paying back loans, buying a car, mortgage, utility bills, and of course theirs the whole being away from friends, lack of parties, getting married, having kids, facing your own mortality when you realize you’ll never be this young again. When you think about it that way it does sound pretty depressing.
But what about finding a job that you love? Making new friends? Learning new things, perhaps getting married, having a kid, or a dog or something. Why do we think our life is over after college? Isn’t that when people tell us our life is supposed to begin?
When I finish school I’m going to make a conscious decision to continue to learn and have fun. Yes I probably won’t have the social life I used to, but I don’t care. Even if its just sitting down for 20 minutes and playing plants vs zombies. I’m going to still try and enjoy myself.
