Life is hard sometimes.

I have been so busy with school and work for the past month or two that I just haven’t had the time to take pictures. This hurts me. It hurts me every fall. I look at all of the beautiful trees and scenery and think, “If only I had a few hours to take pictures of it.” It happens every fall. Thankfully, this is my very last semester of college, so maybe next year I’ll finally get to spend my weekends roaming the mountains with a camera like I’ve always wanted to.

Despite all of the homework and other procrastination-induced stress of the semester, I’ve still been able to get a few shots here and there. This is a collection of my favorites from this fall.

And since I know you’re all wondering, ataraxia means a lucid state of robust tranquility. I’m obsessive compulsive and really like alliteration in my post titles.
