So I just typed a really long caption and my phone froze and it all got erased.
I'll try to keep this short so hopefully that doesn't happen again...
So, my whole life I've worked building everyone else's dreams besides my own. I've had good jobs and jobs I hated. What I didn't expect was something that happened to me in December of 2015 at the best job on Earth (Noble Mountain Tree Service) The pay was fantastic and I was making so much money as a manager that I could buy almost anything I wanted. I grew up super poor wearing thrift store clothes, hand me downs, borrowing clothes from friends and family, didn't have any nice toys or bikes. So this was the first time in my life that I never had to check the price on something I wanted. But no amount of money was worth the pain and suffering I go through these days. What happened in December was a work injury that left me with a herniated disc. Since then, life has been a struggle. The health care system in California is such garbage that I've given up on it. I'm back to only spending on necessary items, I hardly ever buy clothes or shoes and when I do I go for the cheapest clothes I can find. My only goal now is to be a photographer. I'm self-teaching myself which is a slow process but progress is progress. "Friends and family" know what my dream is but I've had no luck receiving any type of support from them. Not even a single like on my photos but they always like a celebrities photo which does hurt a bit. But that's life. Unfortunately it happens to a lot of people and they get discouraged but that will not stop me. I can manage to get there on my own.
I'll mention that one friend who recently found out about my interest in photography said she'd be a model if I ever needed one. But I won't mention her name because I respect people's privacy. If you're reading this, Thank you for being a real friend and not a hater. You're awesome and I won't forget about you. -Felipe
Anyway, I just want to be able to say that I no longer work for someone else at a back breaking job and that I'm my own boss. Someday. ️
