It’s crazy. I started working at my previous place of employment again and it’s like so much had changed, yet nothing at all has changed. It’s a weird feeling. It’s like I’m reliving some of my summers all over again but, hey, this is my life… I guess. Hmm.
You know what’s really difficult? Getting back into the swing of something when you’ve taken a break from it for a long time. I suppose that’s somewhat common sense I guess, but it’s definitely true for me.
How long as it been since I’ve been a consistent blogger? I don’t even remember. I think the last time was probably over a year ago if I must be honest. Sure, I’ve been posting material in that year’s worth of time but not like some other bloggers. Then again, I was never really a consistent blogger in the first place.
I digress. I’m just trying to say that I wish to get back into the swing of running a blog. Ah, but such a task is not going to be easy but I will get past it. I’ve still got a lot of catching up to do with my blog as far as posts go. I meant to continue writing up my past adventures but the mountain before me just seems to big to climb.
Hi Everyone! It’s me, Pineapple.
I’ve been on this whirlwind of excitement ever since finishing a little game called Life Is Strange.
What sort of significance does a game like this have for an artist? Allow me to explain.
If you don’t know anything about the video game, I would hate to be the one to spoil it for you; therefore, I’m not going to. What you need to know about the game is that it is heavily tied to the life and mind of a photographer (because the main character is one!) So as I was playing it, I was thinking a lot about my own practice.
Things have certainly changed for me as a photographer. Ever since graduating, I haven’t really been working on “art” so to speak. There are no real projects that I’m currently working on. However, that does not mean that I haven’t been continuously taking photographs.
It’s me, Carlos. Boy, the summer of 2017 has been quite a impactful one hasn’t it? In fact, it’s been so filled with memories that you’re having trouble writing this post, huh? Well, don’t fret. Baby steps. Just take this one thing at a time.
You know, last summer was one filled with work on work on work. You were slaving. Heh, but not this summer. You spent your summer doing the opposite, not working. Spending your days cooped up inside your parents’ house, in your childhood room, has been both a blessing and curse.
You’ve made a lot of memories in that room. And this summer, it just seems like you really embraced laziness. You managed to play through all of your video games—Murdered: Soul Suspect, The Last of Us, Okami, Life Is Strange, Watch Dogs, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Metal Gear Solid V, and Thief (all of which have brought hours of joy, fright, frustration, etc.)
Hey Wonderful Listeners…
I’ve been thinking about something lately. It has to do directly with my life and one of the reasons I started this blog. I think my sense of life documentation is changing.
Anyone who has stuck around for a long time knows that when I originally started this blog, it was sort of like a buffet of different things; however, everything presented had at least one thing in common: it erupted as a direct response to my life and what was happening in it.
Somehow along the way, I decided that making note of my own life would be a good thing. It would allow me to revisit my past at my own leisure, and it would be filled with lots of information. In fact, I thought it would be a good idea to record every single day of my life (and I did for a while.)
