I've Missed This...

So basically I'm the worst blogger in the world; seeing as I never keep my promises about when/what I'm going to post.  Things are starting to look up for me though...my anxiety/depression has basically gone away and I feel a lot better now.  I had been having insomnia which started right before I moved back home (I moved back in June) and has just now within the last week gone away.  I would legit go five days or more without a minute of sleep...sleeping pills helped at first, but soon became ineffective.  I literally forgot what it was like to sleep. 

Anyways, I've missed blogging.  In the last few months my blog has somewhat gone downhill.  no one seems to visit Rockstars and Randomess anymore That probably has to do with the fact that I haven't been reading/commenting on other people's blogs and that I haven't been on much lately.  I'm ready to change that and do more than just pictures every once and a while.  I want my readers back.

 Today is day 231 of my 365.  I haven't taken today's photo yet.  I am actually so ready for this project to be over.  It's a lot harder than I thought it was going to be when I started it on January 1st.  A picture a day for a year sounds easy, but then think of all the days that are boring and you don't go anywhere or do anything exciting; then you have to search the house for something to photograph that won't be totally lame.
Being in a wheelchair, I stay at home a lot.  Can't drive so it's not like I can go out and find something exciting on my own.

I have to practically beg my family to help me out with this...be my models, take me somewhere that I have been wanting to photograph, ect.   So basically the whole family is ready for this project of mine to be over.  I have thought many times during this process about giving up on 365...but I've already come so far and I have never finished anything that I have ever started in my life, so for once I want to complete something.

I recently got a tripod.  I also bought a shutter release remote off Amazon yesterday.  Hopefully this will help me get more exciting shots....and this way I can be my own model.  That is once I master using a tripod.  I'm not good at it yet, I never seem to have it in the right spot. 

I'm going to try to start blogging once a day again so I can bring this blog back to life.  Tomorrow I'll catch you up on my 365.  If you simply can not wait until then, you can go to my Flickr or Photography Facebook and become a fan to catch yourself up now.

PS: Since post without pictures seem boring to me here is a picture of Ed Sloan lead singer of Crossfade that I took when I saw them on June 10th; post about that show coming soon.  Seeing them again this Tuesday.  Really excited.:
