The Continuing Saga of the Disappearing, Reappearing Matt
I’d like to point out that it seems to be a theme of mine – I have a high tendency to start doing great numbers of things, doing them well hopefully, and then suddenly dropping of into nothingness where the world feels as if I’ve disappeared from it all. One such recent example is my attempt of the 365 project again. It lasted just over a month, about triple the length of my first attempt, but suddenly and without reason, I stopped posting photos.
Was it really without reason? Well, that’s up for debate, but if I look back on what happened, really it’s a combination of several things. The month of October has been a crazy month with more things coming up due that are “required”, per se, and too little time to do all of it. On top of that, I ran out of hard disk space (again) and was no longer able to use photoshop for my work, work. This forced me to move another project I’m working on to external hard drives which has given me the freedom to work on my photos and such again, however its led to delays in posting the photos because I’m behind. This being behind eventually has also stopped me from taking photos, as I feel a sort of blockage in my desire to take photos recently.
That’s not to say I’ve given up – I want to set a realistic goal to get back to the project starting in November. I wanted to try to start back up this month, but I know better. It won’t happen – there’s still too much that needs to be done. Here’s hoping that next month is easier all around.
