Adrenaline Rush

Fierce Photography, Photography, The Artist Life

This past week has been crazy. I’ve worked like a mad person. I helped a fellow photographer shoot an entire dance studio! Which works out to about 800 dancers. I planned to have a Degas moment but photography style. Hehe. It was crazy fun and exhausting. The photographer let me shoot a bunch and there was one evening when I was shooting that I was enjoying it so much I felt so energized and it wasn’t until I stopped shooting that I realized that shooting gave me an adrenaline rush. It was so exciting because the dancers were doing crazy awesome poses. Think jumps, leg kicks, and other cool stuff like that. It was fierce to say the least! And did I mention exhausting? Finally, I have gotten to get some rest and this evening I shot for myself and did some stuff that I have mentally envisioned for while now. Be fierce.

Be creative. I have been feeling very artistic lately because it is art festival season in my city. Happiness.

What’s a blog without a little Shakespeare every now and then? As the title indicates it is definitely time for Shakespeare. Perhaps it’s the fact that we are getting toward the end of the school year and there’s always a school doing their rendition of one of the famous playwright’s plays or the fact that we have a theatre group called Shakespeare in the Park in my city modeled after the famous event by the same name in New York City. Regardless of the reason I definitely think we can all use a little Shakespeare boost so naturally I go to A Midsummer Night’s Dream when Helena says of Hermia…

Though she be but little,she is FIERCE.

Ahh! I just adore this quote! I mean it’s Shakespeare which is fierce. It has the word fierce in it!(Family guy moment) Shakespeare was living fierce long before I came along. I love kindred spirits(bonus points if you got that reference.). I don’t identify myself as a feminist because of what feminism means today but I’m pretty sure that I would say that I am a classical (more on that in another post) feminist and this quote in my mind is definitely saying (Excuse my French) that girls are badasses. We rock. We are FIERCE. in context, “little” may refer to size but I think generally speaking all women are little. But even though that may be true, despite our size compared to men we are FIERCE. We can definitely raise some hell.

Ironically, I am writing this blog post while listening to the radio and an ad just came on that mentioned you guess it! Shakespeare! Ahh, I’m having an inspiration moment. More on that in the next blog post! I love it when you can feel the creative juices running through your body.

Though I may be but little, I am fierce <— might be my new mantra!

“History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it.” ~Winston Churchill

Hello World,

I have contemplated writing a blog, seriously, for a long time. I started one when I was 14 and I think I posted about 5 or 6 things. Haha, they are out there in the “cloud” somewhere. But, alas, I am older and hopefully wiser now. My writing skills have improved, I believe. I am obsessed with all things fierce, so naturally I named my blog fierce. Upon setting up my blog WordPress asked me what I wanted my tagline to be so I said “Fierce Ideas. Fierce Life.” and I realized a trinity was neccessary and it occurred to me that my ideas and my life are a product of my beliefs, hence what you see on zee front page.

Also, naturally, the only appropriate way to open a blog is with Mr. Fierce himself, THE Sir Winston Churchill. Through a series of events a year or so again, I gained a lab/golden mix puppy whom I named Winston due to my love of Churchill. But, through a series of events, I was not able to keep said puppy (not really a “series of events” just mother’s fault). Therefore! I decided that I shall name my son Winston whenever hubby decides to knock me up.

Let’s be all offical with the blog now…Fierce Beliefs shall refer to of course my beliefs and Who I worship. Fierce Ideas shall refer to all my concepts, analogies, metaphores, books I enjoyed, philosophies, thoughts, etc. Lastly, Fierce Life shall be about my Green marriage, moments of melancholy and delight and it shall share/show how fierce I am. Hehe. The thesis is “Let’s be Fierce with our beliefs, ideas and life.” Tadah. Proper writing complete.

I leave you with a few more favortie Winston quotes…

“Success in not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts”

“A love of tradition has never weakened a nation, indeed it has strengthened nations in their hour of peril; but the new view must come, the world must roll forward.”

“History will …
