Day 1/365 ~ Aspiration.

November 29, 2010.

Model: Me (self portrait)


Decided to start a 365 project, I hope I manage to carry it through. Standing on my bed. Taken using a tripod. I need to cut my fringe, cause it's too long(again) so I didn't want it in this picture. The netting is my canopy. I've always loved the dreamy look of my bed so I decided to capture it. It's raining today, so I cancelled everything and segregated from everyone to stay at home instead. I have this gnawing feeling that I should be doing something - anything; as long as it is meaningful - but I don't think I'm achieving much at the moment. Hopefully that will change soon. There's this quote I saw that really struck chords within my heart; "Be the change you want to see." I was pondering over it. It's startling and frightening to begin anything new, or do anything even remotely different from the crowd, because of the attention it draws, the criticism, the bewildered and suspicious reactions at your attempts to stand out, to make a difference. Hardly anyone is able to change the way things are, in the end, we all change according to our situations. For the better, or for the worse, no one knows.. I do want to make a difference, but naturally I don't want to be the first to do it. I suppose this is typical human nature. And that's why everyone goes with the flow. And that's why I remain weak-willed.
