i write with bleary eyes and weary limbs, having recently woken up with a whopper of a cold. since i'm unwilling to risk making it worse in the freezing rain, i'm taking refuge under my blankets listening to cold war kids - their name just seems fitting - and trying to relax. after all, i won't be able to stay in bed all day, and so my list of things to do keeps running through my mind despite my best efforts. it's been over a week since project east, and this girl still has yet to dig herself out of her mountain of responsibilities. yet i'm blogging for several reasons - because i enjoy it, because i have ideas to get out, and because my last post was almost half a month ago, among others. when i came across this ny times article, about the "small, quirky movement called slow blogging," my first thoughts were something along the lines of, "well, i'm already an inadvertent member of that club.."
then i recalled plenty of lazy weekends, spent both at school or at home, when i looked at my old posts and consciously decided to not write something new, perhaps because i simply didn't feel like it, but mostly because i simply wasn't inspired enough to write a quality entry. on the other hand, i'd be lying if i'd never added 'blog' to my ical's to-do list, cringing at the fact that my last post was written weeks ago. do i write for the blog, or does the blog make me write? a tug of war between the two circumstances, i suppose. in the spirit of blogging as reflection, i offer these pictures, which i left untouched on my camera for a month. i was pleasantly surprised to find a pretty concise chronicle of the past few weeks, even including some pre-hard drive crash pictures.
so if my posts were sparse this past month, at least there was a reason. notably absent, of course, from these pictures are those from project east. since i was backstage hastily dressing and undressing models the entire time, i regret to tell you that i don't have any of my own images, but a full post dedicated to that night, with pictures, is on its way. promise!
