Despite the fact that I got quite a few nice surprises today, I’m still feeling very blah. I guess I’m still in Weekend Mode, because I just can’t seem to get motivated to do any work. But let’s start with the surprises:
First I found out that one of my photos is being included on this travel guide website. I have photo of the Orlando Museum of Art that was in my flickr account, which was how they found out. See, check it out! I even get a photo credit with my full name like a professional photographer.
Secondly, I was checking my stats and found that my portfolio has been listed on Daily Slurp as one the Beautiful Sites of the Day.
So really, both of those things should be enough to make my day, but I just can’t seem to get rid of the blahs. I finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for the second time last night and I know I said in my last post that I wasn’t depressed that it was over, but I think I am now.
Personally, I LOVED the book even more on re-read. The first time, I was just trying to get through it as fast as I could because I wanted to get the end and find out what happened to everyone. On the re-read I could take my time and really enjoy it. All the camping didn’t seem nearly as long this time around and I also didn’t mind the corny epilogue as much. I actually really liked it. Though I think part of that is because I’ve read or seen a billion interviews this past week where she has revealed more details about the characters that I felt were missing from the epilogue before.
I guess I’m just feeling like, “Well…what now?”. I’ve been looking forward to the month of July for SOOO long because of the book and the movie (which I also saw for a second time yesterday) and now it’s come and gone and I have all this obsessive energy and I don’t know where to put it anymore. I find I’m almost always better when I have something to obsess over, even if it’s something small. I feel like my obsessions anchor me in a way, otherwise I feel like I do today, which is just that I’m floating along grabbing at things but not really getting anywhere.
What can you do though? I know I’ll find something new to obsess over, I always do. In the meantime, I just have to keep going.
