So if you haven’t noticed, lately I haven’t been too active on the site, and for a number of seemingly understandable reasons. But nonetheless, my apologies to all of you wonderful people.
It’s probably been apparent to at least some of you hopefully that I just haven’t been to active here recently. I really wish I could give some like giant bombshell excuse like my house burning down or something that would really justify my absence, but in complete honesty it’s more just a compilation of reasons that really can’t rationalize my dearth of activity.
This summer I’ve been working a lot at my local lab. I’ve been pulling along a flexible 8ish-6ish shift Monday through Friday and usually working on Saturday as well. We just opened up a new online ordering system at 120Processing.com which has made things crazy busy yet successful. The business is great but I just work more. I always thought that working at a photo lab would really help myself shoot more, but it strangely has done the opposite. I’ve found that the more I work there the less I actually shoot myself. I’m not sure if I’ve been photographically exhausting the 100ft2 of room I’ve been working in or if I’m just getting enough photos from others at my work, but I feel like this has had an impact on me.
Socially I’ve found myself becoming somewhat of a hermit you could say. Not quite in full blast hermit mode but I tend to just want to sit around in my spare time because I feel like I’ve been exhausted in every other sense. So I’ve found myself not taking pictures, which frightens me. I’ll get out for sure I assume.
I’m still slowly recovering (get ready for a pity party) from a bit of a bad break up, which constantly being bombarded by pictures of a certain someone doesn’t help much. Everything I do has been recorded in pictures, and it’s the strangest most permanent physical trigger I think I own about anything. I know brokenheartedness is a poor excuse but it really does suck. So that’s all still a bit rough for me as well. (But I mean hey, keep those likes on those pictures coming my friends).
Like I said earlier, these aren’t really reasons for me not showing up to you guys at all, and I’m embarrassed and depressed by it. You’re all extraordinarily lovely wonderful people who at times I feel the closest to more than anybody at sometimes. And I’m counting on you all to break me of my newly formed habits!
