Self-portrait August 1, 2007
Sometimes I can be too serious. All work and no play. This summer has been a bit of a bummer. My Chinese class has sucked the life out of me. It’s a constant stress. My two hours a day ten hours a week course schedule is very tough and its hard to balance with work. Recently I have been doing well in the course. However, in order to keep up with the vocabulary I have to spend most of this weekend studying.
You know what, I haven’t studied. My Chinese class has left little time for my photography or blogging and I feel like taking a break. Being creative is important to me and life feels empty when it’s all work and no play. This week I’ve gotten a lot of e-mails from old friends on Facebook and I think it’s important to make time for the good people in your life.
Work and ambition are important but they should not be what defines us. What do you really remember as time goes by? The stress of meeting a deadline, or the laughter and fun shared with family and friends.
