В северном пригороде Джайпура, на скалистом холме около озера Маота, в 16 веке началось строительство крепости и одновременно дворца из красного и белого песчаника, который стал резиденцией раджи Ман Синга I. Вокруг Амберской крепости на несколько километров протянулась массивная стена, а благодаря холмистой местности и густой растительности крепость была защищена и считалась неприступной. Внутри же нельзя не поразиться пышной и утонченной отделкой, как вам кусочек?😍
Such great conversations this morning. Clarity moments as I close this year of my life and open a new one tomorrow for my birthday... New year, New me? Nahhhhh.... Same me. No one is perfect and no ones life is perfect... If someone says it is, THEYRE LYING. Social media is a bitch - people only put out what they want you to see. Everyone has fucked up somewhere in their life because they took a risk. But RISKS are what makes it so great. The greatest accomplishments in the world are made because someone took a chance on the unknown. Not to sound cliche: but you only get one of these crazy lives - #YOLO!! So take risks, put yourself out there, live DAY BY DAY, and love EVERY second that you’re doing it. #birthdaythoughts#clarity#epiphany#bestfriends#love#happiness#lifeadventure#lovethelifeyoulive
Perseverance: Steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc... especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement ❤️ I’ve always had a strong will and I’ve always pushed through tough times - and MAN I’ve seen a lot of them. It’s created the woman I am today and it continues to form me into who I will be tomorrow. Be true to yourself, and fight for the person YOU are 👊🏼 Funny... when I got that tattoo 10 years ago - I was prob fighting some battle. I always have and always will persevere 🙌🏼 #perseverance#love#happiness#growth#strength
As I reminisce on this photo of my first day of having a “big girl job,” I am extremely excited (and also saddened) to announce that in exactly one month on Friday, Feb. 16, I will be leaving my position of Student Life Communications Coordinator at @shenandoahuniversity to embark on my next #lifeadventure. I will be taking the terrifyingly #excitingleap of starting my own business in #art, #design, and #illustration to fuel my personal #passion of #socialjustice through art while at the same time moving in with my #bestfriend and #foreverlove, @s_yles. I have experienced so much with the beautiful individuals—students, faculty, staff, #FRIENDS—of @sustudentlife, but I am excited for the happiness that I know this decision will bring me. ///
I came to Shenandoah, worried that I would just become a cog in the wheel; not knowing if my passions would ever shine through to show my true #purpose. I leave SU knowing that I want to use my talents to create work (design and art) that will make people think, truly think, about the impact that we leave upon our world; about who we are as humans, as a country; about how we want to leave our mark; about how we want to be remembered. I leave SU embarking on the most exciting step of life so far: chasing my passions and practicing my true purpose. ///
I thank SU and all who have been a part of my experience here for being a part of my journey to find myself and to find my purpose. SU and Winchester will always be a part of my heart and soul and I will always know that it was the final step in my process of truly realizing who I am and how I should move forward in life. ///
As my favorite author, J.R.R. Tolkien, once wrote: “The greatest adventure is what lies ahead. Today and tomorrow have yet to be said. The chances, the changes are all yours to make. The mold of your life is in your hands to break.” Here is to that #adventure.
