    I LOVE that Petra has only ever owned one bra. In middle school I always felt so pressured to wear them but I hate them so much and they’re so uncomfortable so I just don’t and knowing that REALLY COOL PEOPLE LIKE PETRA ALSO DON’T JUST MAKES ME SO GLAD. i love you xoxox

  • sailor-sloth December 31st, 2013 12:00 AM

    this is such a lovely way to spend my last afternoon of 2013 – looking through these beautiful photos. They make me want to buy a million disposables and photograph my life. Thank you, Petra!

  • Madeline Shea December 31st, 2013 12:07 AM

    These are wonderful, Petra is wonderful, her owning only 1 bra is wonderful. Happy new year to everyone :-)

  • llamalina December 31st, 2013 12:12 AM

    These are beautiful. I want to document my life through photos and have an album like this in a few years. Petra’s photography always looks so candid and natural.

    I live in Toronto and my life is literally so boring

    • Erin. December 31st, 2013 5:30 PM

      At least you don’t live in Brampton. In Toronto, there’s stuff to do even if you never do it. In Brampton, there’s nothing. You can watch hundreds of houses being built. Brampton is boring and ugly. Ugh, this place.

    Oh god! I just had my prom three days ago and in two weeks I’ll know if I got into university and I’m feeling so nostalgic already about school and my classmates and friends and everything because we’re all going to different cities and we don’t know how often we are seeing each other :ccc

    Petra, your photos inspire me everyday to try my best at photography <333

    i loved photo no.10, it reminds me the lisbon sisters

  • unicornconnect December 31st, 2013 12:53 AM

    this is the best thing ever

  • scin December 31st, 2013 1:22 AM

    so weird and nice and weird seeing rosedale on rookie

  • FatedToPretend December 31st, 2013 1:22 AM

    So beautiful, makes me wanna take a picture for every instant of my life :)

  • Bex_cygnet December 31st, 2013 5:36 AM

    I get that rookie seeks to provide a less judgemental, more realistic narrative on young drug use but I still don’t know how I feel about that image. I’m trying to work it round in my head, but my gut response is that it glamorises. As a first aider I find that problematic.

  • whodatgal December 31st, 2013 5:44 AM

    this makes me so happy and sad at the same timeee! so much nostalgia <3333 petra can i have your life tho

  • Nadifa December 31st, 2013 6:17 AM

    Petra, I always have loved your hair!!

  • Rini December 31st, 2013 6:36 AM

    so lovely. i feel like taking photos like you. Happy new year:)

  • flocha December 31st, 2013 6:44 AM

    Oh my god these photos are so beautiful I wish my teenage years were like this. Petra you are amazing!


  • Hebe December 31st, 2013 7:09 AM

    i love your photos!

  • elliecp December 31st, 2013 7:24 AM

    love these. so dreamy.


  • pizzaface December 31st, 2013 7:55 AM

    wow this makes me realize even more that im a dweeb :)

    lovely photos though lol

  • lexilikes December 31st, 2013 9:43 AM

    These are so wonderful <3 The captions really help show what adventures Petra has had.


  • saramarit December 31st, 2013 10:10 AM

    The fact that you could wear jean shorts to school makes Toronto seem like another planet to me. I’m a British person who had a school uniform and if I’d flashed anyone on the last day of school they would probably have had me arrested and I’d also have frozen tits.

  • daisyauthority December 31st, 2013 10:23 AM

    Insanely in love with how beautiful and dreamy all of these photos are.


  • Etima December 31st, 2013 11:32 AM

    this is really cool!

  • mangointhesky December 31st, 2013 12:58 PM

    Ooooh beyond perfection!


  • littlediamonds December 31st, 2013 3:01 PM

    Oh, these are perfect! I love the photo of you at the window looking at the city.

  • Gwendolen December 31st, 2013 4:16 PM

    This is just one of those series of photos that are so perfect and relatable it’s hard to believe they haven’t just been produced by some “This is what your teenage years should look like and they do just your spending too much time fan girling over other girls’ adolescence to notice” machine.


  • nancyboy December 31st, 2013 4:17 PM

    So fabulously YOLO

  • paashaas21 December 31st, 2013 7:16 PM

    awwwhhh i love this so much, i hate it that the same person is standing in all my pictures! there’s literally no one here to take pictures with. i live in the south of the netherlands like in the middle of nowhere.

    ok blog link


  • Bahati December 31st, 2013 8:40 PM

    I didn’t look like this at anytime during high school :( lol!

  • irismonster December 31st, 2013 11:28 PM

    i used to judge people who took pictures of everything instead of actually experiencing life, but i’ve since realized the beauty of documenting your daily life with images (as well as in words, but personally that’s been no revelation.) i film things, too, so i can remember people’s voices, but it’s not quite as beautiful.

  • anna eve January 1st, 2014 1:40 AM

    These pictures have such a subtle magic to them, it’s really beautiful. They just scream teenager in the best way possible. Also yay Petra and Mickey for the flashing part at the end, it was pretty awesome!


  • julalondon January 1st, 2014 8:30 AM

    I don’t know how to describe my feelings about them; they seem so…REAL. I really like that.

  • Katherine20 January 1st, 2014 12:38 PM

    These are so great. They really capture a lifestyle and make a story. They are SO Nan Goldin, you guys. Perfect.


  • galaxia January 1st, 2014 6:25 PM

    I love Petra’s photos so much, she seems to be so cool

  • Sofia Cort's January 4th, 2014 4:56 PM

  • Tiger January 6th, 2014 10:16 PM

    the most beautiful thing <3 <3 love it so much

  • Madeleine January 12th, 2014 6:40 AM

    i love love love these photos, and they have inspired me to take photos more like these. Does anyone know what camera Petra used, especially in photos 19, 20 and 21 because i think the light has been captured so well. All of these photos are so gorgeous and captivating. Please let me know if you know the camera xo

  • godfreyxo January 12th, 2014 5:42 PM

    I’m very new here, but I was just wondering.. who’s petra? and where could I find more of her photography? I absolutley love this bit.

  • xoxololita January 23rd, 2014 3:23 AM

    These are amazing!<3


  • the_smartorialist January 30th, 2014 11:39 AM

    So I’m not the only one with a computer full of strange, late-night photo memories that actually turned out quite good… This is my favourite photo set
