... I have no effing clue what I want to be. Or how to choose. I literally am inspired by something new every single day. I see something that looks so effing cool, and I want to be that in the moment. I think to myself "I could do that! It would be fun too!", but I think it so often, it is very hard to get myself moving in one direction. Everything in the world just looks so cool and like so much fun! Choosing IT was a very hard decision for me. I know it involves lots of monotony, and I am afraid of how quickly I will burn out and want to move on if I don't find a company that can keep me engaged and learning. Anyways, after wanting to try a particularly left-field job, I decided to attempt to keep a journal of what I am inspired by. Let's see how long I can keep it going... For some reason, this year I have been on an antique restoration kick, and have wanted to restore old houses to original and old furniture to former glory (I blame my mom's obsession with that home improvement channel and all the shows about restoring.) Anyways, I have always LOVED old abandoned buildings, so this isn't much of a jump. The bigger the building, the better. Turn of the century hospitals, abandoned manufacturing facilities, abandoned theme parks, etc. SO many people passed through these places, they had such an impact on so many lives... then were just left to rot. It is like they are infused with stories, and make my mind super duper happy as curiosity explores every part, imaging what each piece of equipment used to do, imagining it being used, and even imagining the process it went through over years of nature reclaiming it to get into the state it was in. Like a puzzle of so many possibilities... And for some reason, old buildings and facilities still in use just don't have as much of an impact. The mystery and that post-apocalyptic ruin look is what draws me So, for many years now, I have wanted to do something with old abandoned buildings. Urban exploring, photography, filming... any excuse to go in and rediscover long forgotten bits full of mystery, but once so real and necessary. Anyways, that is all I can think of now, just because it was on my mind. The rest will be a log as I remember to post of things that struck me on a particular day.
