Day Three Hundred Sixty Five | The Beginning

I did Project 365 because I never finish what I start, and I wanted to prove to myself that I can commit to something and see it through to the end. And for the first time in my life, I really did commit to something, and I did see it through to the end. Today, I have finished three hundred and sixty five consecutive days of shooting photos, of writing my thoughts, and of uploading them to Flickr.

 

On the day I began Project 365 one year ago, I found that my employer would be shutting its doors and that I had therefore lost my job. I began on that day a long and difficult year during which I wandered aimlessly for months like a ghost, falling deeper into a depression that was subtle but pervasive. I went through a period where I skimped on meals to save money, passed any social opportunities for lack of funds, and generally kept myself cooped up at home all day, or wandered about Orlando.

 

The year was difficult, for me and for the rest of the world. And it was also quite likely the most significant year in our generation, and certainly one of the more significant years in my life. As bad as the brunt of 2009 was, it was the end. And 2010, this is the beginning.
