Honestly folks....I don't even know why I'm doing this anymore, or paying for this website. I haven't updated the blog in 3 years, and I've pretty much given up on society since Trump took office (I realize he's leaving office now, but his supporters, and the people that think just like him are still out there).
I'm pretty much just done with society, and I can't even remember the last time I took something resembling a professional photography, or updated any of the galleries on this website.
My Bachelor's Degree in History is useless, I don't have the money to pursue a Masters...and I'm honestly thinking I should've gone into one of the sciences, but again I DON'T have the money to pursue a Bachelors in another field.
I've been unemployed a solid 8 months now, and quite frankly I don't WANT to work anywhere that I'm actually qualified for, which creates a bit of a conundrum doesn't it?
As far as photography goes, I pretty much put it aside for the full time job I had because quite frankly this wasn't paying the bills. For that matter I couldn't even convince my own mother to spread my name around to her other real estate agents to try and get more real estate business. Guess that says a lot about how crappy my photography is then, doesn't it? I honestly don't know why I even thought starting a photography business was even a good idea at this point. Hell, even I've started taking more photos with my cell phone because, why bother with quality?
My wife thought it was a bad idea when I first mentioned the fact I wanted to start doing photography professionally, and I guess I should've just listened to her.
I'd say maybe it's the Pandemic and the quarantining, but honestly....I gave up on this business a long time ago. Guess I just didn't have the heart to believe it just yet. It's a sobering thought really, and I've thought a few times about just converting this website to something else and using the blog for something besides photography, but again....why even bother? Not like anyone besides my dad actually reads this thing anyway. I don't even know why I'm typing it out now other than I can't sleep and feel like I need to get it off my chest.
Anyway. Happy Holidays.
