So hey there, how's it going? I was just taking a look around dA when I realized that I haven't done anything with a journal entry since November so I felt compelled to write. However, I realized that I haven't got much to say so I suppose I'll just type whatever is on my mind because, you know, it'll be super interesting.
First of all, for anyone reading this, I would really, truly, honestly, 100%, unbelievably appreciate some true/hardcore criticism on my photos. I know I said that I was a beginning photographer in November and I feel that I haven't progressed much since then so anyone who feels like critiquing will earn eternal love. Not from me since I don't know you, but I suppose you can have my eternal virtual love. Sure, that's a plan. Anyone who gives me some hardcore feedback and criticism on any of my photos will win eternal virtual love. It's 2012; virtual love will eventually take over anyway.
Next order of business that's not business at all. My summer break FINALLY got here and just as soon as I thought I could relax for a couple months, I looked over all my summer assignments. Well shoot. For my summer AP photo assignment, I'm supposed to take a photo every day that relates to whatever the theme is that week. This wasn't a problem at all for me at first. I was excited, genuinely really excited to do this photo-a-day-every-single-day-with-a-common-theme thing at first. And then I realized how challenging it's going to be. I picked up my camera and thought that I could snap a picture, do some editing, and call it a day but you've got to have an idea first. BUT before you have an idea, you have to come up with a theme. It's the second day of summer and I'm already out of ideas. (Can you run out of ideas if you never had any to begin with?) I was thinking about how challenging this was going to be when the next problem dawned on me. I don't do anything over the summer. Honestly, I don't do a thing. It's ridiculously hot where I live so I go into hibernation during the summer months.
There are 77 days of summer. This is a problem because I can't have 77 pictures of my house or my street. I'm going to HAVE to venture from the depths of my cool house into the sweltering hot 110 degree weather in order to get a picture. But I can't have 77 pictures of my neighborhood, either! So what now? Does this mean I'm actually going to have to be social for once and go into town? Because it's hot. It's really hot. And in case you haven't picked up on it by now, it's 110*F hot. I've not snapped one picture and I'm already worrying about this assignment. We'll see how it goes.
The third and last order of business that just so happens to be the least significant yet - I'm sitting on my floor as I'm typing this, staring at an abandoned, worn-out pink yoga mat because I don't want to exercise at all today. Not that this has anything to do with art or photography whatsoever;I just thought I'd tell you. Problem?
Well I suppose that's it for now. I'm not sure how to wrap this up, so I'll just leave a link to a song that's stuck in my head. That works, right? Too bad it doesn't work for research papers...
