Tyyne Bloedow (pronounced Tina) is a 21-year-old Fine Arts major who is graduating this December from GRCC. Tynne’s dream job is to be an actress. When I asked her what sort of films she would like to act in she said "anything". Naturally, I had to ask if she would like to be known for one film what would it be, she told me “something like Mean Girls,” with an innocent smile.
A typical breakfast for Tyyne might be granola and a smoothie. However, she informed us that given roughly 30 minutes, she can make some of the best home-made waffles known to man. On a separate note, she informed me that her guilty pleasure is that she loves to put ranch on almost everything, especially French fries.
The cocktail that she is best known for is her Red Sangria, which I have yet to try. One of Tyyne’s biggest passions is photography, and she is as talented behind the lens as she is in front of it. Other passions include writing poetry, and even sleeping. When given the chance to read some of her work, I saw a different side of Tyyne, and it was very well written. Here's one of her poems:
you grab my face and you kiss me. such a simple thing, really, although nothing can even begin to describe anything about what you do to me. your fingers are rough and calloused, and they scrape gently against my sensitive skin as you run your thumb across my lower lip. your other hand encircles the nape of my neck, pulling me in seemingly but its honestly your eyes that bring me physically more close to you. your eyes, those two perfectly turquoise orbs of mischief, blinking heavily down at me through long lashes and i can see exactly what you're thinking, you don't even have to tell me- your eyes cant help but give everything away. the smell of you, the deep smell of familiarity and home and everything that makes me happy- the light of my life in a scented candle. both hands on my face, grabbing every inch of my attention and then you smile and my heart melts and my eyes cant stop tracing every inch of every beautiful piece of you. our bodies are touching and i know we are in the middle of a party because i can hear the loud hollering of our friends and the flashing of cameras and the screaming and dimly i can see everyone throwing back shots and laughter echoing around us but its all in the background. its all faded out for me because in that moment all i see and all i feel and all i live is you. it was only a moment, yes, only seconds, really. but you touching me sets off sparks in me like nothing before, you are truly a work of god, a masterpiece sent here specifically for me. and you lean in, and press your soft lips to mine and i cant help but smile into them a little when you do because it will never be possible to imagine a universe where you wont be there to kiss me.
I asked Tyyne if she remembered her first photo shoot, and of course, she did. It was during a pageant in high school and she believes she won the photo shoot portion, which would not surprise me.
I closed by asking her what her next big move is, to which she so elegantly responded. “I don’t know; I don’t know what I’m doing tomorrow……I guess I’m doing laundry.” It’s always a great time shooting Tyyne, she needs very little direction and has a natural look about her that makes things easy behind the lens.
