I'm going to HK this November and I wanna meet/work with YOU! If you are interested, email me at miss@rozettediaz.com. Let's shoot, hang out, whatever!
  • Listening to: St. Vincent
Though I haven't been very active lately, and not much art's been produced in the past couple of months (I've been posting old stuff).. I just wanna say thank you for +faving & featuring my work - both old and new! I think Love and Shoes (www.deviantart.com/deviation/1…) has the most faves now! Thank you!

Will be back soon.. I'm on THESIS mode and HOPEFULLY, I get the inspiration I need ASAP.

:heart:

  • Reading: a stupid magazine
I didn't want to update my journal because I'm no longer subscribed and wanted to keep my journal layout for as long as possible! lol But anyway, I've set up my official portfolio already (www.rozettediaz.com). Whapak.com's about to expire and I have no plans of renewing it anymooore.. Same way I feel about my dA subscription since I'm paying for my flickr as well. lol. No more money!

Anyway, I've been looking for new models to work with. I'm kind of in a gray area, as far as photography's concerned. I just need to break free from everything that's been holding me back (school being number ONE on that list). I'm considering some summer programs abroad (particularly in New York or LA, where my relatives are) but I might just have to wait til after December (when I graduate!).

ANYWAY, I have too many things on my mind.. I'll post some new stuff soon!

merry christmas and a happy new year!

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 29, 2008, 7:29 AM
I'm back from the dead! :D God, my internet broke a few days before Christmas and just got fixed TODAY. I felt really really bad the first few days but after a week, it just felt really normal and good. I watched DVDs, played The Sims 2 again and went out and did other things that I had no time to do when I was confined in front of the laptop all the day long. What a break!

But I'm looking forward to a great new year and more pictures of course! I'll try to catch up with everyone. But til then, MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR! :D

holidays

Finals are over, this hellish term is finally over, and all that's left is course cards day (very nervous about that..). I am seriously stuck in a rut. I haven't done anything new and I want to but I'm just stuck. I'll try to do something during the break but I'm trying not to pressure myself. Maybe I've just been too stressed out with all the schoolwork. I'll try to relax a bit and then do something.

11 days left til Christmas! :D

EDIT: I'm very busy with schoolwork so I haven't been able to update and check my dA much. The trimester's about to end so we have to do a lot of stuff!! I'm gonna start on my thesis next term (HOPEFULLY) so I'm really at a crucial part of my school year. PRAY FOR ME! HAHAHA

I'm off to the beach again! I'm leaving for Zambales in about an hour.. have to go to school first. I'm attending a Photo & Video Workshop with some professors from uni and a lot of my friends are going so I'm really excited! :D

I'll be back with lots of landscape pictures, I'm certain. Haha! Have a great weekend :)

Your Catfish Friend
by Richard Brautigan

If I were to live my life
in catfish forms
in scaffolds of skin and whiskers
at the bottom of a pond
and you were to come by
   one evening
when the moon was shining
down into my dark home
and stand there at the edge
   of my affection
and think, "It's beautiful
here by this pond.  I wish
   somebody loved me,"
I'd love you and be your catfish
friend and drive such lonely
thoughts from your mind
and suddenly you would be
   at peace,
and ask yourself, "I wonder
if there are any catfish
in this pond?  It seems like
a perfect place for them."

Well, dears, midterms are over but the workload isn't improving, somehow. I've still got the same amount of shit to do and it's driving me crazeeeeh. T_T I really hate doing research. I do I do I do. :cries: Oh and btw, I've been getting massive amounts of Plurk invites but I REFUSE to give in to the hype! Haha. I have enough accounts as it is (none of which gets regularly updated except my devArt of course heehee) and I just don't see why people should know about what I do every minute of every day since I'm a boring person anyway! Haha. All I do is.. eat, go to school, eat some more, hang out.. that's it. :P

Anyway, I got this quote from a book called "All for Love" by Laura Stoddart (a wonderful, wonderful artist! check her out please).


"Because women can do nothing except love, they've given it a ridiculous importance." - Somerset Maugham from "The Moon and Sixpence"

eh? :rofl:

Thanks to everyone who's been watching me, faving my stuff and commenting. You guys make me happy! :D Thank you so so much~ I appreciate it. :heart: :heart: :heart:

lookbook, blog

If you're bored and want something to look at/read, I regularly (HA!) update my main blog which has been around for years and years.. WHAPAK! Don't ask me why it's whapak.. I seriously can't remember for the life of me. Haha~ I wanna buy a new domain but I don't really have the time, money to maintain a new one so I just keep whapak.com.

So there's this cool site that has style photos from all over the world. Check it out if you like! :)

I've also been posting some new photos from a shoot I had with Luis and Nicai! :heart: I hope you like em! It was an awesome session.

LOOKBOOK.nu: collective fashion consciousness.

MY LOOKBOOK PAGE

I bought this new book called, "All For Love" by Laura Stoddart. I swear, the illustrations are just TOO LOVELY. And of course, the quotes are just spot-on. :) Here's a few of my favorites:

"What thing is love? For well I wot,
Love is a thing,
It is a prick, it is a sting;
It is a fire, it is a coal,
Whose flame creeps in at every hole.."
- George Peele


"Thou hast no faults
Or none that I can spy.
Thou art all sweetness,
Or, all blindness I."
- Anonymouse

I created a new photoblog out of boredom! Please view if you have time :) Any tumblr users here?

I'm at Starbucks right now, abusing their free Wi-Fi.. (well, they've been abusing my wallet long enough). I have a class in 30 minutes and I really wanna cut it but I already cut it last week so.. I won't. haha I'm so lazy. -_-;;


  • Listening to: "Icicles" by Let's Go Sailing

oh, laziness

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 28, 2008, 6:33 AM

Cause it's bad to do what's easy,
Just cause it's easy and I,
Wanna do what pleases me but I can't
</em>


This is EXACTLY how I feel right now. I need to do a lot of things for school and for extra-curricular shit but I haven't started on any of them. I'm so lazy. :cries: I want to stop cramming but I can't help it!

Anyway, we don't have classes this Wednesday so yay! Three days of school only for this week.. darn it, why didn't it fall on an INSERCH day instead? Ohwell~ everything has a reason! I just remembered ANOTHER thing I need to finish by tomorrow. *dies slowly*

I've been submitting a lot of scraps and I love them all so take a peek if you're bored! My scraps are mostly of candid/not-so-candid shots with people who are close to my :heart:. I post them mainly for my own satisfaction. :) I'll probably post more tonight HAHA. Just cause I'm trying to do as much nonsense as possible to keep myself from what I'm supposed to be doing right now and that is - a 3 page paper on my own definition of HISTORY! damnit.

And now, I have 2 minutes til 9:30 (the time I promised myself I'd start on my paper) so I shall goooo and drown myself in schoolwork miseryyyyy.

Love love love love :heart:
It's the best feeling in the world!

I haven't been able to submit anything lately because school just started again and I have yet to do anything new.. Nevertheless, I promise to do something before this month ends! I have to.. for the sake of my sanity. @_@

Girls need attention, and boys need us
So let's make everybody glad
That they have each other in each others arms
Oh let's make everybody glad

I wanna dream away with you tonight
We can go anywhere you would like
I wanna feel how I wanna feel forever

I want you.

After three days in Lian, Batangas to do a video shoot for one of my major subjects, I am back! We stayed at my friend's SUPER NICE place with his family. Had the best time ever for so many reasons I'd rather not tell.

I'll rest for nooow. I'll catch up with the comments tomorrow! Thank you so much for the faves + comments + watch!

Stay in the shade until you reach the grave
Hide from yourself and see how you fade
You'll see how you fade

Love moves on
Life goes on

You'll stand all alone


These are both old photos.. I just like how they feel.
I've been seeing a lot of very inspiring work in deviantART recently
and it's so refreshing.. I might just do a whole journal
entry featuring some of them soon.. (weekend probably)..

I hope I graduate soon.. And as soon as I graduate, NY Film School here I cooome! :heart:
It doesnt hurt to be learning from some of the coolest
people in the industry right now.. indie filmmakers and
screenwriters.. my favorite will still always be Sir Doy! Haha~ Even though he's retired already... I'm blabbing now..

I'm doing a shoot soon.. with two different people..
I love working with people I love.. sounds redundant?
It issssss.. :lol: I want lots of shoots after our
finals week.. I feel like a zombie @_@

I shall fly away.
