My Past Three Months


Today, I published the video that has been in the making for the past two-ish months. It’s one second per day of my life. I decided to publish it now because I want to start something more like one moment per day, because I felt like one second wasn’t really enough sometimes. Each day won’t really have a set time limit in the next compilation.

It’s been an amazing past three months, really. It started three months ago when I left my job, but for the past two months I’ve basically carried my camera with me everywhere the entire time, something that I hadn’t really done since mid-2010. Photography has yet again become an important part of my life. I see little details in my everyday life again, something that I stopped doing when I became busy with school and work.

In October 2010, I started working at my first job. It pretty much sucked the life out of me. In 2011, during my senior year of high school, I often had no weekend to myself, no days off. I worked from 11am to 9:30pm during the weekends, some more hours during the week, and, of course, had school Monday through Friday.

When my finals were coming up during my first semester of college, I decided to leave that job. I instantly became so much happier. I didn’t have to worry about not having time to go to work and do my homework. I could hang out with friends pretty much whenever. I had all the time in the world to process my photos at the end of the day. I also didn’t have to ask for time off when I went to Boston during my winter break, which was great. The only thing that I really miss is the weekly paycheck. I honestly don’t know how I’ve been able to go from $200+ a week to $0 a week.

I really love that taking pictures and processing my pictures every night has become a daily routine. It’s hard to remember the little things that happened between mid 2010 and the end of 2012, because I have no photographs to remind me. I love that I can look back through my photographs now and remind myself what happened that day.

I’m happy again.

EOS 5D Badge
In the last week, I ordered a Canon 5D, but it failed to turn on even with a fully charged battery, so I sent it back and they’re sending me a replacement. The delivery estimate said it was supposed to come yesterday, but it never got here, and the status is still “In Transit,” so hopefully it comes on Monday.
