Hello Flickrites :) I'm back, after an extremely long hiatus (like 5 months?) I had to stop my 365 project, the last photo that's up was the one I uploaded just before I went to go on a trip, and I had no opportunity to take 365 photos there. When I got back my mother had to go into hospital to have a double knee replacement. I had been feeling unhappy about the 356 project for a while, just because I had far too much work, and not enough time, and was far too stressed to take any good photos. Most of the photos I took, I was extremely unhappy with, cause they were crappy filler shots. Once I stopped, I felt so guilty and anxious about stopping, and basically didn't log onto flickr for months, because of the awful anxiety I felt whenever I got near the site, or thought about my 365 project.
I took this photo probably 2 months ago (and the black eye is from a well placed snowball, we were inundated with snow here for weeks, very unusual for us) and I've only managed to upload it now.
I'm not going to restart my 365 project, I just haven't got the time or energy, and I need to actually pass my exams if I want to get into University.
I'm going to delete some of the crappy filler shots that are on my stream. Although that might be against the ethos of showcasing a year, they don't have any merit, and they just remind me of stress and exhaustion. I don't want them here. Although what I will do soon, is upload the backlog of good photos I've taken since I've stopped using the site (non-self-portrait ones) and get back to being proactive on flickr again, cause I really missed being on here.

Is this the real life Is this just fantasy Caught in a landslide No escape from reality Open your eyes Look up to the skies and see I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy Because I'm easy come,easy go, A little high,little low, Any way the wind blows,doesn't really matter to me, To me Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
That is a song of truely epic proportions, to the point that I could sing 'Mamaa, just killed a man' in the corridor, and there'd be at least one person who would continue the song.
I am packed up to head off on a school trip to Dorset for Geography. We're headed there to look at the coasts and geology. Physical Geography isn't my favourite part of Geography, but I just love the whole subject so much, it doesn't really matter. Either way, I'm extremely excited to go, even though it's going to be a 12 hour bus ride tomorrow, and it looks like I'm going to be having maybe 3 hours of sleep :-/ But I'm still excited, and its going to be amazing :)
He understood, and he listened. I told him. He said he'd knew that something had been wrong that time, but it had never crossed his mind it could be that. He wasn't angry, just sad that it had occurred.
But I am fine now and past it. I think. I hope so.
Work, work, work. It's getting very hard to keep up with the photos. It's not the time, it's more like I just don't have the energy by the end of the day to take a decent photo. Which is why they all seem to be getting more similar to each other, which I apologise for.
