Journal Entry: Thu May 30, 2013, 9:36 PM
Hello DeviantArt,

It's been yet another long stretch since I've ceased to neglect
my profile and submitting new art (which I actually tried
to do, but the upload/submit design has been so revamped
since my last time on here, I try to submit all the informa-
tion, but it still asks for a valid category when I checked the
boxes provided).

Sadly I've fallen into the old bad habit of convincing myself
that between work, home life with my love, and inconseq-
uential weather variations that I'm too busy or have made
excuses to not get out and take pictures when I have a perf-
ectly wonderful world outside the apartment. All I have to
do is go outside, find a random trail, and walk it into the
nearby foothills.

Looking back over my most recent set on the 23rd of May
this year, I feel I've lost my touch. I'm forgetting to set the
brightness filter, or not framing things as well as I used to.
Some shots still turn out very well, but I suppose I've hit
the proverbial writer's block.

Once I have the means to again, I really need to travel
more often and at great lengths. The successful have
often said that to prevent insanity and to always keep
a fresh perspective and regain motivation, one of the
best remedies is simply travel; change your surround-
ings more often to escape the daily grind.

Here's to hoping I can get back into the swing of
things artistically, and to figure out why the new
submit system isn't working lol.
