the one where I swear to do better....again

So, I decided to do a 365 project, where I take a picture a day, every day for a year. Yeah, well. It's only two weeks into January, and I've already managed to mess that up. Go, me! But I can totally turn this around, right? Yes, I can. Ok, so...plan. At first, I thought about cheating and using older images, or using images taken on different days to catch myself up. Then I realized how lame it would be to cheat your own 365 project and scratched that idea. Then, I considered making it a once a week thing instead. I mean a 52 project is almost as good as a 365 project....well, one seventh as good, to be exact. But I kept seeing people talking about how doing a 365 project really challenged them and helped them to grow. Well, I like those things! I want to be challenged and grow and crap. And I saw all of the people putting the images into a photo book at the end of the year, and I totally want to do that! But then I was thinking, that's kind of a lot of pressure to not have my photos be crap. I mean, I don't want to pay to print a bunch of pictures of my breakfast. I mean, I don't even eat pretty breakfast. It's just yogurt. In a bowl. And not even, like, an artisan bowl. Just a bowl. So, no pictures of my ugly breakfast. Or my outfits. Because how many pictures of pajamas does a person need in an awesome photo book of challenge and growth and wonder? None. That's how many. Ok, maybe one. But no more. This suddenly started to seem like a lot of rules. And I hate rules. I'm a rule breaker! (Not really)(ok, sometimes I break small rules. But it makes me uncomfortable. And I feel bad. So, I tend to observe most rules. Well, like, rules of society. The important ones. But other than that? RULE BREAKER!!!) So, to salvage my project as best as possible, I am going to post the images that I did manage to take, and then I will go from there. And hopefully, I will stick to it, because photo book!.....Or growth. Whatever.
