Another version. It just keeps getting better 🙂



Say I Love You

The movie script:

Hello Therese Lawlor here so quote of the day is, “One simple I love you can change everything for the better.” I really think that is an awesome quote because when someone says I love you it does change things for the better. When someone tells you that he loves you that’s like not just you know oh I like you and you’re my crush. It’s like he really cares about me. It’s awesome because those words have a lot more meaning to it.

The words I love you can really cheer someone up so if your significant other is angry or sad let him know you love him if you really do love him. It makes such a big difference and it’s so easy to say. It’s just, “I love you.” I had a relationship in the past where an “I love you” saved it. I remember almost breaking up with someone because he was leaving the country. I was like so sad at the time, but when he told me he loved me I knew we could make our relationship work. I knew he loved me before he even told me he loved me, but when he communicated it, it really cemented it in my mind.

The words “I love you” carry weight for people because it might be ingrained in us as humans to accept that as something really meaningful. It might be because it is ingrained in us from the romance movies we watch where the lead characters tell each other “I love you.”

Make sure when you tell someone I love you to back it up with your actions. You can’t tell someone you love him, but not be there for him when they really need you. Make sure to respect your significant other’s wishes. You can’t be telling him I love you, but you are still going on dates with your ex-boyfriend.

Loving actions toward your significant other communicate I love you, but you must also actually say it. A good example is you can make your boyfriend his favorite dinner and during dinner tell him you love him. You could get your boyfriend flowers and then tell him you love him. There are many things you can do. Find out what your significant other really wants and do that for him and then make sure to tell him I love you and really mean it. That is it for my video. Thanks for watching bye.

Why We Take Photographs


The script:

Hello, Therese Lawlor here so for the quote of the day here on Ciao Means Hello Art Gallery is, “We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us.” It’s by Ralph Hattersley. I really like this quote because we’re all photographers and we start out by making photographs of our lives and that helps us understand what our life is all about.

When you first start out taking photographs, you typically take photos of your family, friends, pets, and your surroundings. You start taking photos locally. You take photographs of what you have going on and you bring your camera around and record your daily life.

The first time I got a camera was when I was eight years old. My dad gave me a pink Vivitar camera that I used to take photos of my cousins, my aunts, my dogs, my grandma, my grandpa, and my nanny. I also took photographs of my birthday celebrations, going to the beach and later going to Manila when I went to process my passport so I could go to America. While I was in Manila, I remember my mom and I took a trip to Jose Rizal’s house and got photos of his house and I still have those photographs to this day,

Once I arrived in America, I took photos of my trip to Hawaii to see my cousins. Then once I arrived in Houston, I took photographs of my family and friends. During middle school, I would have sleepovers with friends and we would play dress up and take photos of each other. We had a great time and I will always cherish those photographs. When I moved to Rochester, I took lots of photos of the parks there. I have many photographs of Highland Park during the Lilac Festivals and I also have lots of photos of Mendon Ponds.

During the summer of my junior year in high school, I took a photography class at Rochester Institute of Technology and began taking black and white portraits of my friends and my little brother. Some of my photographs from that class won an award. I absolutely loved that class because it was my very first official photography class and I learned darkroom techniques.

When I was an undergraduate I decided to major in photography and then I later switched to visual media. I took photographs for projects, but my favorite photographs were the ones I took during spring break, Thanksgiving break, and vacations to Florida.

Last year, I went to Canada and I took my best photograph ever there. I took a photograph of my friend having coffee and texting in Barnes and Nobles. It is such a simple photograph, but I love it. I got to capture a really simple moment, but it just looks so awesome in black and white. Sometimes photos turn out great even though it’s just a simple snapshot of your life and nothing about the photo has been staged or lighted.

I also went to the Rochester Institute of Technology campus with my dad last summer and I got to take photographs of the campus. I have wonderful photos of the Golisano Institute for Sustainability.

The building is beautiful. There are plants on the wall and on the rooftop. You can see the beautiful design of the building. These photos were taken with my Samsung tablet and I turned them black and white. They look gorgeous in black and white.

I have many photos of RIT that summer and you can see how complete the campus is. There is a Barnes and Nobles, there is a Starbucks, you have a Java Wally’s café to go to, and much more. Java Wally’s has artworks all over the walls. I also got to take loads of photos of the Bevier Gallery at RIT and you can see some of the artworks that was on display.

During my undergrad years, I spent lots of time on the RIT campus because everything was there. You had places to eat, a gym, the skating rink, what more can you want? After I graduated from RIT, I continued to eat lunches there. RIT has a restaurant called Salsaritas and they have the best tacos. RIT also has a Global Village where you can buy exotic foods like Mochi balls and green tea KitKats.

Lots of these photos I have shown you were just taken for fun and usually with a tablet yet they are so interesting. The photos help me learn about my life and it also lets you, the viewer get a peek at my world.

Alright, thanks for watching. Bye.

Without You My Life Would Be

The script:

Hello, Therese Lawlor here so I found another really awesome quote. I thought this was a great quote. It’s a quote that is perfect for couples—either a significant other kind of relationship that does not have a label yet or boyfriend and girlfriend relationships or married couples. The quote says, “Without you, my life would be a little less bright, a little less fulfilling, and a little less fun.”

When you find someone that makes you feel awesome realize how important that person is. Not everyone makes you feel awesome and fills your life with brightness and sunshine. Also, know your life would be a little less fulfilling and you would have fewer things to look forward to without that person. Know that you get up every morning looking forward to spending time with that person even if it’s just sitting around and watching reruns of Friends.

Know that your life would be a little less fun without that person. Know that that person makes going to Starbucks to get coffee more fun. Know that that person makes the best food ever and you look forward to that person cooking dinner for you.

For those of you who are married, realize that life would be a little less fulfilling without that person. If that certain loved one was not around you would not have all of these kids and grandkids. Know that because you have been married for so long that your relationship might seem too comfortable and boring, but just make sure to realize that without this certain other person you would not have a family that cherishes you.

Sometimes you might find that significant other who keeps your house in immaculate shape because she cleans so much. Know that that is special to you and that you would have a very messy house without her. It is realizing simple things like this that makes a difference in your relationship.

If you are married, think of the house you have built together. Think of that vacation home the two of you go to every summer and realize how much you look forward to going to your vacation home. Remember all of the fun trips you have taken together and realize that thinking of those vacation memories make you smile. Make a scrapbook of your trips so the both of you can look through those photos and realize that what you have together is special and nothing should get in the way of your relationship. Know that life would be less fulfilling without this person around and how amazing your life has been for years because of the presence of this person.

That is it. Thanks for watching. Bye.



Unbreakable Relationships

The script to the movie:

Hello Therese Lawlor here. In this video I wanted to talk about how some relationships have an unbreakable bond. Sometimes you may encounter a special relationship where nothing can break your bond because your love with each other is like water and it can take the shape of any vessel.

You have to realize that there is a long lasting relationship out there you may find because you have confidence in how much you like each other and that affects how things work in your relationship. He might express to you how much he likes you and then you express to him how much you like him and it creates a loop of trust and care and forgiveness so that whatever challenges are thrown at your relationship, it does not destroy it.

For example, you might have to travel out of the country for a job and leave your boyfriend and he understands that you have to do that. He knows that you still love him lots and that you will still keep in contact with him and he will be fine with your decision of putting your career first and leaving the country for awhile.

Now there are some relationships where you cannot leave your boyfriend even though he knows it is important for you to leave the country because your job requires it. You will notice that that relationship does not feel right. The reason why it does not feel right is because your relationship’s glue is not strong enough. That might be caused by the lack of trust you may have for each other. Your boyfriend might also be the jealous type and does not want you to be away from his watch for too long.

When a relationship does not feel right to you, do not hesitate to voice that fact and perhaps end that relationship. When the relationship is made for you then you will make it through thick and thin and distance from each other will not be an issue. You needing to leave the country is obviously not your fault and you are not trying to hurt your boyfriend’s feelings. Your boyfriend should understand that and find ways to work around the distance between you and him.

There are lots of ways you can still stay in contact with each other. You can talk to each other via phone, Facebook Messenger, Skype, and much more. You can take time off from work and visit each other. If the relationship is really strong then you will find yourself going back to him when your job is done or he will make the sacrifice and move to the city you have moved to. Love works in mysterious ways and when you find that one person you will know it is the right one because nothing can break the love that you have for each other and your relationship will continue on no matter what. That is it for my video. Thanks for watching. Bye.
