thanks! i’m really not that thin; i guess i weigh more than “average” for a girl my height. my diet varies quite a bit day to day. i actually just eat what i crave most of the time. when i’m home at my apartment, cooking my own meals and going out in the city, i try to be vegan as much as possible. i eat a lot of avocados, spinach, blueberries, soy yogurt, dark chocolate, and peanut butter. i guess the majority of my diet consists of mostly vegetables, fruit, and protein, with a little bit of everything else in between.
right now i’m in southern france for two weeks, so i’ve been eating a lot of cheese, bread, and sweets. i’m expecting to go back to the states a couple pounds heavier. ;) hahaha
Anonymous said: Hi Bridget! I was wondering what program you use to edit your photos. Do you use any specific filters? Thanks! :)
Hi! :) I usually use Lightroom to edit and I’ll also do work in photoshop on some of them. I don’t usually use any filters or anything specific. I just kinda work on a photo until it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.
I know that probably doesn’t really answer your question, but if you have any other questions feel free to ask!

You are way too kind. I am sure that—whoever you are—you are incredibly beautiful and have so much more going for you than you are even acknowledging. Don’t ever wish to be anyone but yourself; you are capable of becoming anything you want to be. Thank you so much for being so sweet. :) ♥

No, I’m not. I actually get this a lot. I guess I look Jewish; it’s probably my big nose.

gibberishdogfish said: The picture of you with your father's x-ray is so poignant; it brought tears to my eyes (no . . . I'm not going to blame dust). I also admire the "monarch" analogy; that's a fitting tribute. Also, I use too many semicolons.
:) thank you so much! you are so sweet. <3
(if anyone is wondering, here are a few of the x-ray photos that he’s talking about… more photos at bridgetbadorephotos.tumblr.com. i really need to get them up on my website, but this will do for now.)

cinephilewannabee-deactivated20 said: Hey. I saw your post about the person asking if it's better to dorm the first year at SVA. I'm a Freshman and I'm at New Res and I was wondering what area you live in since you said it's much cheaper than dorming and I'm looking for a relatively cheap place to stay at for next year.
My sophomore year I lived on the upper east side (76th and york.. very east) in a one bedroom with one other girl. it was just a little bit cheaper than it would be to live in the GW, but more worth it because we had our own kitchen/living room/etc. this year i live in the east williamsburg/bushwick area of brooklyn (off the morgan ave stop on the L train). i live in a 3 bedroom apt with 2 other people, and it is substantially cheaper than any other living situation i’ve been in. i know people that have found much cheaper places in other parts of brooklyn, off the G train for example, but we really wanted to be the closest to SVA as possible. good luck looking for a place! it was tough, but when you find the right place it’s worth it. :)

aw, thank you!! :)
unexpected-delight said: I noticed your an experienced student at SVA. Do you recommend a freshman to join the dorms in SVA at first or get an apartment of their own?
I would definitely recommend doing dorms for your first year. though i live in my own apartment now (which is much cheaper than dorming), i lived in new res my freshman year, and i loved it. it’s hard to adapt to city life & college in general; i can’t imagine doing it alone.
Anonymous said: how much is SVA a year? do your parents have to help you? how's the housing? is it worth it to you?
you can find out a lot of this information on the SVA website (sva.edu). yes, my mother does everything that she possibly can for me. it’s obviously worth it to me, or i wouldn’t be doing it.
