Not only is photography my passion but it's a huge form of procrastination.
It's constant. It never fades, ever.
I wondered a lot last year if this 'hobby' was a phase, if it was something that would come and go, like many of my hobbies did when i was younger (Cough, wanting to be a world class roller-skater cough.)
But it never did. Instead it's become stronger. I'm my strongest behind a lens. Maybe it's because behind a lens, you can create the world you want. You can jump out of the one your in, and create something for yourself.
It's with everyday passing that i begin to realize this is what i need. Not just want i want, but what i need, too. Somehow, somewhere my life needs to be molded around me, and my camera. No this does not mean i will be walking hand in hand along a moonlit beach having romantic walks with my camera. I need more in life but i figure if you're following dreams, the rest will follow.
It's also with everyday that i notice photography is not something you turn off when you want a break. You never stop thinking in frames. Documenting life and a living it are no longer two separate things, they have meshed together.
So, this post is sort of a promise to myself. To look back on when I need the upward thinking and remember that this is what i need. And to stop at nothing.

Enough for now. School work calls :)
