What do you mean goodbye? :paranoid:


Well, it's goodbye from this account. AngeliqueRaindrops is closing & will no longer be a usuable account. I'm turning off deviations, journals, poll, etc. Why? Because this account is associated with my "baby work." All the stuff that I have on here shows how I got to where I am today. HOWEVER, "AngeliqueRaindrops" is not a professional name and I will get nowhere using that name for work-based use. That and I need a change. This account is associated with so many things, both good and bad, that I just need a little room to break free.

I, like my photography, have matured, and it's time to move on to a new account. :D

If you're interested in following my new page, you can message me for details.

All of my new work will be uploaded there, and I will continue my dA experience on that account. AngeliqueRaindrops is staying open to maintain my copyright of the work here, and to allow people to continue to enjoy the literature and the pieces of art that have reached over several thousand views.

Understand that with this account closing, it means that I WILL NOT be able to respond to any comments, notes, etc. so please, please, PLEASE do NOT comment me here anymore. Thanks for understanding.

I appreciate everyone's support in the past, and I hope to see you all on my new account.

:peace:

A long time ago, when shit was going wrong someone suggested that I close this account and start over. And I told them that was an INSANE idea, as I put SO much effort into being here. However, I am no longer going by AngeliqueRaindrops in my photography. Everything is watermarked as Josefina. So my question is, do I restart?

Keep this account open to maintain copyright, but not respond to anything here...there are a lot of memories good and bad hidden away in my inbox, comments, messages, and old photos...so that's not why I couldn't close this account completely...well that and the damn copyright of my images. I am very happy that several of my 365 images rocked up to well over 9,000 views! I do appreciate that, but I sometimes wonder where I'd get with a new start....do you see my trouble in decision making here? :XD:

So, do I open a new account that reflects what I do now?

The only issue with a deviantArt change, means that I'll have to start over with my fan page on Facebook, and replace the email address with a new one. I suppose that won't be that difficult. My name on Flickr's already changed, but the URL hasn't. And due to the fact that it is SO hard to get views on Flickr, I don't think I'll be closing that account & starting over. Forget that. :paranoid:

But with all my new work...do you think it's worth it? Creating a new account & putting a freeze on this one?
I really, really want ya'll opinions on this....and no wishy-washy ones either. I need serious inputs, or I won't be able to make up my own damn mind.

Everyone who follows me now will get a message telling them that I'm switching accounts, and the main page here will be put to rest.

And for those concerned about my groups, the administration will be handed over to my new account, so I won't loose them, because I am not closing those. It might be nice to have fresh start...I don't know....tell me what you think. Thanks! :)

:peace:

As the days go on, I'm getting busier. This is a good thing. Especially when people pay me. :B
My website is in the works, and business cards are on the way.

:iconveryexcitedplz:


Sometime between now and July 17th, I shall be working with:
Brit Austin, Tabitha D, Asher and hopefully Tiffanie Ford.

July 17th-21nd: Working with Story-OfMyEyes and Nixeblue

July 23rd: Baby shower.

In August: Graduation party, Stephanie Offensive and Courtney Suder

I'm still open for the rest of June, and the beginning and end of July. This is the last chance to get TFP shoots. Once August comes I will be charging for shoots, as I'm missing school, and study time for work and editing. If you know anyone who needs a photographer (and they're on the east coast) now's the time to let me know.


Hope everyone had a good day!


Go follow me on Tumblr.

:dalove:

OH, and you NEED to go check out nosredna1313's t-shirt design of Miss-MischiefX. :B (Which I'm getting btw) :lol: It's pretty epic. :meow:

Guess what? :B

I'm writing this journal from my bed. Ya know what this means? :excited: I FINALLY HAVE INTERNET AT HOME! :dance: So now I can stalk all of you from my bed. Rather than having to go to the dreaded community center. :XD: So I'm just going to go over here in this little corner and dance.

:iconveryexcitedplz:

Anyways, I'm home from my massive trip! I got to work with shelbyuuu, SaraJennifer, Sitara Bird, PhotogenicXpression, Miss-MischiefX (a new photo up soon), and Shauna Lavigne. I am home from now until July 17th.. Then I'm traveling down to Atlanta. Where I will be working with Story-OfMyEyes and her sister....perhaps even meeting TheKrimzonDemon? :excited: Then I'll move on up towards North Carolina were I'll be seeing a few old family friends, and possibly seeing DarlingAngel0565 and phydeau? Depending on timing. And then I'm back up here for 3 weeks (during which, I get to see Dolly Parton in concert) and then I gather my life together and get ready to move into my house in PA for the fall! :D Almost the minute I get there, I have a shoot with Stephanie and Courtney. :) So Imma be a busy girl. :lol:


How's all of you?


Oh, and one last, and important thing.....today is tart-naived's birthday. And you should go and say "Happy Birthday" to him, because I told you too. :B

That is all.
:meow:

  • Mood: Joy
  • Listening to: The Happiest Pretenders-Clare MaGuire

The key word here is OPINION. NOT a critique & not a bossy version of what I should do with my life.

The other day I was on the phone with my father, and he told me, "Maybe you should just quit school, and pursue what you love. I know that you're really enjoying this photography trip, and it's the only thing that I've seen you pour your heart & soul into so seriously, so perhaps you think about that."

Yes. My father said that.

However, that is a tough decision. I'm not acting on ANYTHING right now. So don't even go there. :XD:

Here's what I know:
1) I hate school. Always have, always will. Now, there's a difference between the people at school, the work at school, and the testing at school. I love people. I've always been one to meet new people, or be interested in people's lives. :nod: I love working in class, writing papers, and learning. I can't stand having to memorize pointless shit, and take tests on it. That's where the problem lies. I have no problem sitting in a classroom and learning. I have a problem memorizing things that will have NOTHING to do with my future.

2) I will NOT go to an art school. I love art. Have loved it since I was little girl: painting, watercolor, clay, basket weaving, film photography, jewelry making, drawing, etc. But if I go into something that I love, that love gets destroyed. I love psychology, and look what this school year did to me. I can't even LOOK at a psychology text book. :( And while not every photography class would be horrible, it's not something that I'm willing to risk yet. I don't like being told how I should do something, and I'm not a fan of playing by the rules. I truly enjoy doing my own thing. Taking ideas and making them "mine," learning things on and off, and some how incorporate it into my art. I do listen to people, and their suggestions (especially when it's something I really want to know), but that's if you're not telling me HOW to take a photo. I will take a photo, how I want to take my photo. Thank you very much.

3) I do have a back-up plan. Should I quit school, and just "go" with life, photography isn't the ONLY thing I will be doing. I won't be relying on 'money-from-shoots'. There are good, DECENT jobs that I can get WITHOUT a degree.

4) I'd rather spend money on things that I love, and things that will benefit me in the way I need it too. Versus, spending money on a degree that won't necessarily be used in the work force. THAT and the fact that many many kids now are graduating college with NOWHERE to go, because people aren't hiring. The economy is still shit, and I would hate to do a double major (one of them being a 'back-up plan') and find out that I won't be able to get that 'back-up plan' job. THAT would be a serious problem.

5) Even if I just took a YEAR off; I just need something. I don't feel like I belong in school right now. I think I need some time to be me. Figure out a bit more of what I want, what I want to accomplish, who I want to be, and how I plan on going about it. And I honestly don't think I'll get answers to those questions while I'm stuck in a classroom having to memorize shit.


:icondahrplz::icondahrplz::icondahrplz::icondahrplz::icondahrplz::icondahrplz:


I also need to make some things clear here, as some don't understand:

1) I am serious about photography. Maybe I wasn't in the past, (I take that back, I wasn't really), but now it is something that I want to pursue. And at least make a quarter, if not half of my living off of that.

2) I do NOT take bossiness well. What I mean by that: you tell me HOW to take a photo, I'm going to ignore you. There's a difference and a fine line between TELLING me how to do it, and giving me SUGGESTIONS for the next shot, or the next edit. I am open for suggestions, ideas, and ways that could help me improve. :nod: But telling me how I should take a certain shot, and sounding like a boss is not going to get you anywhere with me.

3) I am NOT making any big decision in the next day, in the next week, in the next month. It's an idea that my father put out there, and that makes good sense. I'm not happy in school. He knows this. I'm finally doing something that I love, where I am TRULY happy, and for once in my damn life, he's ACTUALLY SEEING THAT. And he's doing is best to support me. I would like to know that there are others out there, who will support me, and my decisions, without telling me what I should and should not do.

4) Another thing that people need to remember: just because they say something, doesn't mean I'm going to take in their suggestion and use it. You could tell me one thing, and I'll do the exact opposite. This is, indeed, my life. I'm the boss in my life. I get to make the decisions, when and if I feel them to be appropriate. I appreciate people's concern, peoples thoughts about my well-being, people's concern about my future, and I do listen to you. That is why I'm asking for your opinions now. Do not attack me. You may express your thoughts, your opinions, your ideas, and suggestions, but I will tell you how it is for me.

Hopefully this can give me some sort of an idea, and more to think about.

is fucking amazing!! LSKERJO(*&AKDJ!#@$%#!LKJDGKIEO! :XD:

First off my photo:


"White Light"

got accepted to ModelProPhoto....that might not be a big deal to any of you, but it is to me. :B and for that I'm celebrating... :meow:
:paranoid: Eternally of course. :XD:

:iconmodelprophoto:

Thought I would share. Secondly, I got to meet PhotogenicXpression for the first time tonight!! I'm so glad that I get to work with her, she's an amazing model, and I can't wait to see the outcome of all the shots! :) Here's a taste:


Dreams

Check it out yo!! More photos of shelbyuuu, Miss-MischiefX, PhotogenicXpression & Sitara Bird on the way. Also, I might be working with THREE models while being in the Berkshires area. Anyone else want a shoot? I'm traveling near Philadelphia on the way home to meet with another (new) model, and I've got two shoots in July tentatively set up!! What, what! :B I am so excited.

If life went my way, I'd quit school and just travel. Do what I love to do. Meet new and interesting people.
This is what I want do with my life. However, if such things were to happen, my daddy wouldn't be paying for things. :( I kinda need that $$ in order to live...as I don't have a husband, nor do I have a full time job. :XD: Blah! Growing up. :smoking: It does not impress me.

Anyways, I'm having tons of fun! I'll be working with the beautiful LadyClarabellafaire next! And who knows who/what else we'll be shooting with. Can't wait yo!

Go check out the stop-animation of Miss-MischiefX's firebreathing. Her friend Shaun, (SMP-Photography) happens to be eating the fire. What's that you say? Eating the fire? :O_o: Oh, indeed. :onfire: It's all in the animation. Check it out, loves! :D

Many more photos coming later!

______________________________________________________________

I finally made it to Massachusetts, with shelbyuuu! :D Let me just say that is some drive that I don't EVER want to repeat again. Truckers can't drive. People can't drive. Rain makes it difficult to see, and stupid people who can't use their headlights correctly nearly got me killed twice. :unimpressed: Not to mention the fact, that I drove 14 hours straight...all fucking night long. :paranoid:

Anyways, that's not the point. The point is a) I'm alive, and b) I'm shooting with Miss-MischiefX later this afternoon. I am quite excited. But for now, I'm going to curl up in this bed and pass out. I'm so tired that I'm dizzy. :O_o:

Hope you all have a wonderful day. :D

So I finally get to update you on the happenings and the real reason why I spent over $1,000 flying out to Detroit. :D

1. I came to work with the amazing Sara Jennifer Panza.
2. So I could work with Sara's model (& professional hoopdancer) Sitara Bird.


^That's Sitara Bird! :D

This shot was taken after the official shoot was over.
Look how those hoops are only balanced on her fingers! :O_o:

Anyways, now I shall point you to a video that I made of her dancing. :D

Photobucket

Video shot with my iPhone & put through a processor, so I apologize for the shit quality. At least it captured what I wanted it too: A free sprit.

Dancer: Sitara Bird
Video Edit: Me
Music by: Carmen Rizzo
Photography by: Me
Edits by: Shelby Ursu (shelbyuuu)
Photography Head: Sara Jennifer Panza


Go take a look at both! :)


Oh! And for those who missed it....I got my lip pierced!



I'm waiting for the "I wonder what it would be like to kiss you?" questions. :unimpressed: Trust me, it's bound to happen. Everyone always asks to play with the eyebrow piercing. :XD: It seems natural that everybody get's a bit curious. :XD:

Boston, Ma; Pittsfield, Ma; Berkshires, Ma; Washington, D.C.; Altoona, Pa; Asheville, NC; Atlanta, GA are the cities that I'm still heading towards. :nod: Let me know if you want a shoot! :D

I've had an interesting day...I'm in one of those moods where I can't decide whether I'm in a good mood, or a bad mood. I do know this though: I can't deal with stupid, clueless, arrogant, or ungrateful people. Be thankful for the shit you do have, because some people have absolutely nothing at all.

Okay, so the number one thing, is the new deviant, shelbyuuu. She's my photography assistant and a damn good photographer herself. She just got her account tonight, so you all should go watch her. Because between the two of us, we'll be making magic.

:iconshelbyuuu:
shelbyuuu


^That's her!
Go and say hello!!

:iconwavesplz:


On another note. I have been reunited with Quinn, (aka hitomi8591) Which is a good thing! shelbyuuu and I have been crashing at her place and tomorrow we are hitting the tattoo parlor! You know that means...Ima have more ink! :D It's quite wonderful really. I have a beautiful design all planned out, and tomorrow, the artist and I shall sit down and get it all perfectly planned.

:iconveryexcitedplz:

As for this moment, we are watching a Jack Nicholson movie, "As Good As It Gets". We've done SOOOO much shopping it's nuts! I have new clothes, new rings, new necklaces, new posters, new shoes...everyone just needs to stop taking me places where there are stores that sell cheap and wonderful things. :nod: It's true. Already my dad is like :O_o: at the price. Hehe. I'm flying to Detroit on Friday, and I will be there until Wednesday. :dance: I'm so excited, I have a big shoot on Saturday, and I'm working along side the dear-beautiful, Sara Jennifer Panza! :)

It's not funny. They seriously are. And so are the assholes who flash their lights from regular to highbeams and back again, just to try and get me to go faster. :| Drivers do not impress me. Neither do cops. Neither does traffic. Nor stupid people. :smoking: All of which I have dealt with today. :D I was up at 7am. :O Which was a horror. Then I put myself in a dress. :paranoid: Then I drove 4 hours to PA, where I attended my little sister's graduation, and then picked up my photography assistant, Shelby Ursu.

BTW, thank you for everyone who was interested in the job. (There was a total of 6 people) but Shelby seemed the most reasonable. :nod: I was suppose to with her back in March, but things fell through as I got busy. But now she gets to accompany me on my 3 week adventure! I'm so excited.

:iconveryexcitedplz:

At this current moment, I'm in a hotel somewhere in Ohio. I still have about 8-9 more hours of driving, before I get to see my best friend, hitomi8591! All hell is gonna break loose! You all might want to keep an eye out for the evening news. ;) There's no telling what craziness we're about to get into. :onfire: There are so many amazing things happening, and I can't wait to keep you all updated. :D

But for now, Imma tuck myself into bed and sleep...or I won't be able to drive. :XD:

A dream in the Pipes.For future years and future tides.
Let's leave this place with out a goodbye.
The flood has past and was sent,
just to another lonely.
Purified pulses saves her soul,
from another false tale told.
Your someone new, someone old.
Someone has you on their mind.
And now as this folds to an end,
I thought you should know,
your someone I used to pretend.
A Handful of DustFetch me the Spirit,
the Son and
the Father:
tell them how
their pillar of faith
descended,
and landed proud
in dungeon dark
and ringed with angry fire.
Watching how the fire burned,
the pillar stood,
shining proud and bright.
But Hell is other people,
and beholders have gone blind,
the fire round the pillar -
burning sadly
burning fierce
burning dark with other's fears -
caused the pillar now to sweat
and through those leaden salty tears,
it saw no beauty in its miles,
heard no beauty in its cries,
and spoke no beauty in its lies.
Within the pillar, salt a road
started soon to fierce erode,
and gradually,
quite carefully,
the pillar crumbled
and those who saw its
fall
picked it up
and to a hall
of gold they took
its pieces.
There it reassembled sore,
caught between the children
born by thunder's god.
It issued forth
a gutt'ral sound,
a cry of madness made
of deafened ears
and weakened tears
and all the years
of disbelief
in compliments and truth.
Their words were Mjolnir
on the unbear
FearWhat is fear?
How does fear feel?
Heart pounds and hands tremble
Unable to move and unable to breathe
All life has gone
Leaving a quivering shell
Eyes wide with fright
Horror fills your every thought
All control lost as fear takes over
Have you ever felt like that?
Ever wish you could end this torment?
I have
I do....

I need a photography assistant.
Someone who can travel with me for the next three weeks.
My father is offering to pay $1,500 (that's $500 a week) for anyone interested.

Here's the catch:
1. You have to love to travel.
2. I have dates set in stone, going out of the way, or off course is not allowed.
3. You have to be able to sit in a car for hours on end. (Having a driver's licence is useful too.)
4. You have to get along with me.

Trip starts this Friday.
I'm located in Washington D.C. but can pick you up at the State College Airport in Pennsylvania, or at an airport in Chicago on June 1st-3rd.

This is where we're going on these dates.:

I will also be working with PhotogenicXpression, LadyClarabellafaire, & Story-OfMyEyes
Those dates are NOT set in stone, as of yet, but will be once we get started.

Any one interested needs to notify me ASAP.
Those who might/have/need to take a plane, we can talk about paying for your ticket as well.
I'm being dead serious here.


My lesson with JaimeIbarra is tomorrow.
So. Fucking. Stoked.

I will not be on dA much between May 28th & June 22nd, due to the amount of time that I will be spending in the car, and the amount of editing that I will be doing on and off throughout the entire trip. I will be on to check messages, so don't hesitate to ask how the trips going, etc. :D

The bullshit that comes with coming home. :| While my father and I have done a relatively good job of shutting up and not arguing over every damned thing you could think of, I am still NOT happy that I'm here.

Since I left for boarding school, 7 years ago, this town has only gotten worse. Worse in the sense of racism. :| Frankly, I'm quite sick of the judgmental looks, the stereotyping, that accusations, and the whispers behind my back. I am a fucking human, and I do notice these things. The sad part is, I seem to have to point this out more and more everywhere I go. And that isn't fair to me. :disbelief:

Just because I'm Hispanic/Latina, doesn't mean that I'm going to steal shit, that I'm part of a gang, that I shouldn't be trusted, that I don't speak English, that I'm uneducated, that I'm a whore, that I have children, that I'm a stay-at-home-wife, that I want to get married, that I'm religious, or because I'm sitting alone- it means that I'm plotting something. :smoking: All of the above is a form of stereotyping that I have been shoved into in the past few weeks.

So what if I walk into a store. It's a fucking free country. If I walked in because I actually NEED something, I have the money to pay for it. So don't go looking at me like I'm about to steal from you. :| What a fucking joke.

Just because I have tattoos does not mean that I'm a part of any gang. I do not have gang related tattoos. For fucks sake, take a look at the ink, it's quite artfully done. Tattoos are a form of artistic expression, and 48% of Americans have either a tattoo or a piercing, that doesn't make me any different. :unimpressed:

Just because I look Hispanic/Latina doesn't not mean that I don't speak English. I don't need shit spelled out to me like I'm deaf. I also don't need shit spelled out to me period. I guarantee that if I were the one talking, I would have said "fuck" or "shit" in the first three minutes (because I'd be telling you off) and I'm pretty sure that would indicate that I speak English. Secondly, I do not have an accent. Maybe a hint of a Southern one because I lived in the middle of the mountains of NC, but that's not enough of an accent to give me shit for. :paranoid:

I am quite educated as well. Boarding school, academically, street wise, mentally I'm older than I am physically. So don't even start me on the "uneducated" bit of crap. I am also not a whore. I do not sleep around, and I do not flirt with everyone on the fucking planet, so those people can piss off. Also, I don't know how walking around in sweat pants and tee-shirt makes me the whore. :O I mean, whatthefuck? :|

I also do not have children. I'm nineteen years old for fucks sake. And yes, I know there's a show called "16 and pregnant", and I'm aware that there's a show called "Teen Mom". I got it. However, you do not see me on that show, nor do you see me walking around with a kid, so stop assuming shit. Also, as I have no children, that technically means that I'm not a stay-at-home-wife. :XD: I am also NOT married. Would you look at that? :meow: I will get married when I feel the time is right, and there is someone out there who is decent enough to marry. :B And you know what that means? People need to stop coming up to me and giving speaking to me like they want to date me. If I don't give you the time of day, CLEARLY I'm not interested. This also means that you need not propose to me while I'm eating lunch at a shopping mall. :| I'm eating lunch, for fucks sake, and I DON'T KNOW YOU. :disbelief: Therefore, my answer is going to be a big fat N O! Christ, you people piss me off.

I am also NOT religious. I understand that many Hispanic/Latina people are very deeply religious. I get it. However, that is not me. I am very FAR from it. Do not go around throwing God in my face, because you think I have "sinned against him." Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. Also, chances are you are just throwing Him in my face because you, yourself do not understand the Bible. I have studied it, I know what's there, and I just don't believe it. Do NOT go and get yourself in a fight about religion with me. I guarantee you, that it WILL ruin any friendship that was there. It's happened before, lets not make it happen again. :pissedoff:

On top of all of that, just because I choose to sit alone somewhere does NOT mean that I'm up to no good, or that I'm plotting the world's end. :| For fuckssake. I'm sitting alone because a) I don't like you. b) you scare me. c) I get more shit done this way. d) I'm not interested in conversations with stupid people. e) I can think. f) I don't know you. g) because I fucking want to. :XD: Obviously if I were up to no good, and I was indeed plotting the world's end, that would have been done LONG ago, and I would currently be ruling the world. :onfire: But, as you do NOT see me in charge, that obviously did not happen. :B  Therefore, you need to stop looking at me all suspicious like, and get on with your life...assuming you have one, that is. :XD:

Seriously. I should not have to come home and deal with this sort of shit. I'm an adult. I'm educated. And I'm American. All of you haters need to hop off and leave me the hell alone. And the whispers behind my back, are going to lead to some major problems. There are these nice people called lawyers, and there is this nice place called court. Don't make me take you there. :smoking: I was talking to my father last night, and he was just shaking his head at how stupid people can be. Honestly, neither he, nor I, thought that racism would be a problem for me. Clearly it is. :|

I'm so fucking done with you all.
