Who knew I'd make another vlogging update a day after the first one. Well, things have changed over the past 24 hours.
(See today's vlog:)
It looks like I'm going to end it at 300.
Between work, being married, and staying healthy, I'm finding very little reason to justify finishing this project. It doesn't do much of anything for me other than wear me out when I have way more important things I need energy for.
It takes at least 4 hours out of each day to make these daily videos, and I desparately want and need that time back to spend time with Anna.
300 videos is insane. Making another 66 at this point seems like un-needed stress. I know I could do it, but at what cost?
I haven't had a full/great nights sleep in months. I go to bed at obscene hours just to get these videos out.
I just need time away. Time away from the internet, time away from my camera, time away from my computer, and time away from making anything. I was hoping to do all that next year but I can't think of a reason not to just do it all now. Life is too short.
Every time I've taken a break from a 365 project, I come back with fresh eyes and my work is elevated and different stylistically. All my stuff feels kind of stale to me right now (photography included) and I just want to walk away and think of new ideas.
Let the week to 300 begin.
