Recently, I started reviving my photography and I immediately started realizing what I hated about it! Unprofessionalism. So here’s my way of putting these unprofessional Instagram models out there on blast. Don’t work with them. All of them either bailed, didn’t respond or had such a shit response time, that they weren’t worth trying to shoot with.
- Paige Nicolle Drysdale
- Brenda Figueroa
- Nicole Gum
- Phyl D. Ray
- Monique Grijalva
- Shey Assar
- Jasmine Clark
- Corrina Ontiveros

We glamorize getting drunk, doing drugs and sleeping around. Look on Meetup for a singles group that doesn’t involve drinking. There aren’t many. Look on any dating site for someone who doesn’t drink. There aren’t many. Ask an adult in a new area what there is to do and they’ll probably point you to a bar. Too many people hide themselves, or are too weak to be social without alcohol.
There’s a lack of respect among people. So many people I run into are so fucking clicky it’s obnoxious. Like I get it, you have your group of friends, but don’t be a cunt and lock out other people who may actually be fun to be around. I feel like so many people are super closed minded, and that’s saying something coming from me as I am kind of stuck with my ideologies.
I’ve run into so many people who will pretend to be interested in being your friend, partner, whatever. They act interested, but the moment you ask them to do anything they push you to the bottom of the barrel. These people should be kicked in the face. Here’s 3 examples. Mind you they’re all with the opposite sex, but that’s just because I don’t have any fresh memories in my mind with another male.
- Girl hangs around us almost the entire time we were there, while swimming around somewhere. Then when asked to spend time outside, denied.
- Girl texts and says she is open to spending time together, then disappears.
- Girl responds actively on dating site, saying she hates text (messenging), then when asked to talk on the phone or go out makes an excuse of being busy.
What the fuck is wrong with people. What happened to being straighforward. Not being a fake twat who deserves to be hit by a bus? If you’re gonna do something, fucking do it. If you’re not interested in being around someone, fucking say it. Don’t make these pathetic excuses.
I’ve seen so many people that have gone through health issues, spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on healthcare, just to have the problems come back. Our healthcare system keeps us reliant on them. Keeps us down. It doesn’t fix anything. Nothing’s cured. In hundreds of years how the FUCK is cancer still around?
Monsanto is another issue, poisoning us with preservatives and toxins. Anything natural is expensive because this corporate greed giant has the monopoly.
What do we need to do to end the greed of pharma and monsonto?

About Me – Love Profile:
When I like someone. I fall fast. Just like my car I have a go and a stop. I don’t really know an in between. I’m instantly vulnerable with no safeguards. There’s no getting around that fact. I’m brutally honest and my loyalty knows no bounds. The idea of taking anything slow to me doesn’t really compute. If I love or like someone. I want to see them all the time. I’ll miss them when I’m not around them. I don’t get tired of being around someone I love. I don’t need much personal space if any. I will always give the person I’m dating top priority, same level as family. I also won’t run away when times get tough. I will do whatever it takes to make my partner comfortable and to be around them. I will usually trust until I’m given a reason not to. And I’ll communicate any concerns I have.
I don’t get hints, I don’t like games and I’ll be straightforward as much as possible.
I do what I say and I keep my plans.
I’m more about the destination than the journey when it comes to love, I don’t like the chase.
All I know is how to be myself.
If I really do like someone. I’ll be more open to things I would normally not be open to, such as sports. Why? Because I see my partner enjoys it and I get enjoyment out of seeing my partner happy and being around them.
You know that moment when everything seems like it’s going great, and then the girl stalks your Facebook, then overthinks and overreacts by jumping ship because she’s got feelings? Or dating someone who jumps into a relationship without being ready and without thinking about it? Yea. I know that feeling too. Though I digress.
So all this comes from a girl I just dated for a short time. We hit it off immediattely. A lot in common, great conversations, great sex, we had a lot of fun together. We spent almost a full 2.5 weeks together. Then the problem weekend arrived. I get a text on Friday saying we should take it slow. Then Sunday I get a text saying we should just be friends. Now without going into every little detail, she wanted more romance/courting and more little nice gestures. Which personally I see as skewed and ignorant to an extent. For a few reasons. Everyone has a different idea of romance and courting for one. And I can’t fucking read minds. It was also never discussed. The other thing that’s retarded about that. She had her kid every evening M-F, so the main times we could do anything were weekends. First and Second weekend we had dates. Third weekend, I had plans from months ago and I even invited her. Sure, she brought me over food 2 times, and took me to a baseball game (which btw, I hate baseball. My nice gesture was going with, point and case, some people don’t realize a nice gesture). I brought her food once, bought her tickets on the second date, bought her food a couple times and invited her to go to theater in the near future. In either case, it becomes too much of a comparison and too much of an expectation. I’ll give you the world, being my time and my priority. My personality isn’t to give you random THINGS. It’s to give you my love. Funny thing about it too, she would complain about having shitty friends who just get drunk, act immature and don’t commit. Then has the balls to say she doesn’t feel special and just feels like friends when I am the one to give priority and a positive influence.
OMG. He’s got aspects of an ex, I’ve gotta run away. OMG. I have feelings. RUN! I need to focus on myself. I need to focus on my daughter. You don’t give me xyz. All bullshit. All excuses. If you like being around someone for any reason, be around them. Oh, and as long as I’m on that subject of ranting. Guy friends. You’re naive if you think they aren’t just keeping you around as an option. MOST guys will keep hot girls around as options. So if you’re a good looking girl who’s got a lot of guy friends. Don’t expect any guy worthwhile to be comfortable with that. While we may be confident with ourselves and you, we know guys.
Bottom line. If you like someone, don’t run away. SIT DOWN and DISCUSS expectations. Most good guys aren’t gonna become your friend right away after a relationship. It’s going to take healing time.
Me for example.
- I’m opinionated
- Open minded with some things
- Closed minded with others
- In aspects, I’m stuck in my comfort zones
- I won’t do things I don’t enjoy unless I have to
- Politically speaking, I’m totalitarian, though that’s another post.
- I have no filter
- I’m definitely not PC.
- I hate when I’m not in control
- I hate liberals who complain about shit that doesn’t ACTUALLY matter. Like this whole stupid transgender issue, seriously shut the fuck up.
- I’m pro gun, gun free zones shouldn’t exist. They prevent Tyranny among other crimes.
- I don’t like speed limits or stupid laws.
- I’ll laugh at stuff I shouldn’t laugh at. My sense of humor is so dark, it picks cotton.
- I’m not racist, but will certainly laugh at it.
- However above this all, I’m loving, caring and old fashioned when it comes to dating.
Point is, I’m awesome, fuck the rest of you. Love #Deadpool.
Dating these days is complicated, stressful and impossible to understand. I’m always wondering, should I say this, should I text that, should I call, am I being needy. I mean fuck, you can’t be yourself anymore without scaring them away.
Personally, if I like you right off the bat and enjoy being around you, I’d rather date you and only you until we determine it’s going to work out or not. Dating more than one person at a time doesn’t make sense to me It’s harder to keep track of who the person you like really is, makes it harder to remember things they’ve told you, etc.
I can’t stand how it’s so impossible to tell the outcome. It’s all like a foreign language. If he/she says you’re sweet, but he/she’s still thinking about it, then what the fuck?
Some of this I blame on the guys who use girls for sex. The idea of playing with emotions isn’t appealing because I know the feeling all too well. Downside of falling fast, and being somewhat OCD.
People always tell me to “focus on yourself”, “do what makes you happy”. Well what if I told you I was happy before starting to date someone, the fact that I get down from wondering where it’s going to go is situational and is typically an emotional response that is engrained in some of us, if not all of us.
In any case. I’m going to be myself. Love it or hate it. I’m genuine.
Nicole Arbour said it even better. Dating these days is Fucked.
I keep seeing all these posts about how iPhones are for smart people, and how Android is for poor people. There’s some flawed logic in these kinds of posts. For one. iPhone is simple, just like their users want. They don’t want to deal with customization. Personally, I’d take customization, a removable battery, and an SD card over a phone that’s supposedly secure and simple from the factory. I want to be able to control my phone. This isn’t how an iPhone user thinks.
My theory on why more of the successful and creative types use iPhone is that they just aren’t interested in the above. They don’t care that they can use an Android as a computer replacement, because their iPhone can make calls, send texts and surf the web. Though just because a person is successful doesn’t mean they are smart.
If anything, I would make an opposite claim that iPhone users aren’t as smart in the technical aspect of Android users. Because there’s more to Android, there’s more to figure out, more nooks and crannies for the ability to unlock unknown possibilities.
Plus, the fact is, with Android, users don’t have to let ONE company dictate what they get out of a phone. Why? Because there are TONS of Android options in all shapes, sizes, prices and customizability. And that to me, is smart.
I want to know something. If people can fuck up my day and impede my route to wherever I’m going, and break traffic laws in the process. Why should I have to follow traffic laws? 99% of cars on the road impede the flow of traffic.
What the photo industry has evolved into is pathetic and sickening. It seems to be a bunch of unoriginal copycats setting the bar to those doing the hiring that results in at least one of the following: Long hours and no-low pay, Everyone expecting a lot from trade, photographers giving away photos without watermarks. This is NOT okay.
As a photographer, you SHOULD NOT:
- Give away photos without your logos (Give away means for free or less than $200/hour)
- Be willing to work long hours for free
- Be willing to work long hours for less than $50/hour
- Shoot on auto
- Not edit your photos originally
- Copying makes you a piece of shit
As a person hiring, you SHOULD NOT:
- Expect photos without a watermark unless you’re paying very well
- Expect 5 hours of work for less than $200/hour
- NEVER tell a legitimate photographer with a legitimate backing you don’t need them.
- This makes you a douche.
- Since when are good photos a bad thing?
- There’s never too much coverage of your event when it’s legitimate.
- Expect anything without paying for it
Be fucking grateful a company wants to cover your event if they reached out to you.
Bottom line, if you can’t do it, and are going to get quality images in one way or another, shut the fuck up and let the photographers do what they do best.
