under construction || life

As I'm starting to slowly adjust to my life in Belleville, as a photojournalist student, I'm starting to become restless. I'm adjusting but I'm also antsy. I'm antsy about friendships, personal projects, my program, my purpose, and my future. 

I want to take some time in October to go under some construction. My heart, my spirit, and my soul need to be desperately refreshed. I need to lay out some priorities and figure out why I'm doing what I'm doing. 

First, I'm going to take a break from my blog. Not because I don't want to blog, but because I'm going to redo the layout (I'm hoping to connect with a graphic designer to help me out rather than doing it on my own). I want to reconstruct the purpose of this blog. When I first started it this was a place for me to share my 366 project that I started while living in Korea. Unfortunately that only lasted for about 4 months. After that died off, I didn't know what else my blog could be used for. 

Blogging is terrifying. You have to work hard to draw an audience while being yourself. I got lost in the first few months. I tried to imitate others while attempting to be myself. It didn't work. Emulating another person's life isn't the way to live your own life. You have to be yourself. Every person has something unique to offer. 

I've decided I know what I want this blog to be about, but I'll need some time to process all the ideas I have in my head. I'll need some time to plan out future blog posts. I'll have to take time to connect with other bloggers and designers in order for this to go forward. I hope you'll be patient with this process. I need all the support I can get. Don't we all?

I've got some good news! Last night I finally reached 100 followers. She is a photographer and takes wonderful pictures. I also really enjoy what she writes. Go check out Stephanie's blog, Tale of Time. This excites me to be able to connect with other photographers, whether they're into fashion, editorial, news, documentary etc. The most important thing to me is to see and acknowledge the talent and giftings out there. 

I'll be back. I promise! I've got so much I want to share with you.
