So I've been told a blog is where one is meant to be real with his/her audience. Well, I'm 32 years old. I Have a useless college diploma. I either have too much, or too little experience for positions in my 'field', at the same time might I add. Oh, and even though I've been working for the last 17 years... I still have NO FUCKING CLUE of what I want to do with my life.
Photography was an out for me. A way to escape living with room mates who I knew would ditch me. A way to escape dealing with printer support calls of all things. At one point I challenged myself to see how many ways I could answer user issues. If you're wondering, 3 online chats, 2 email correspondence, and 1 phone conversation... ALL happening at the same time. Photography helped me figure out how to make sense of the world, and notice things that I might miss in the never ending, sometimes pointless feeling, tasks of the day.
All of this is to say that if you feel lost, can't quite see the purpose of it all, or just have no clue what you're doing in this life... you are not alone.
