Lately, I've been wanting to photograph some more.
But I've been totally "dead" on ideas of what to shoot.
I really want to get better at it, I don't want to just take
snapshots anymore. But again, no ideas have been coming
to me. I see tons of things, but never hatch an idea, I never
see anything and look at it as something that can be turned
into a piece of art. Perhaps I should hit the books. Or
watch some videos, get some tips from other photographers.
I think I'll try to do that, I'll post another blog and tell you
what's been done about my "photographers block".
Something else that I've been wanting to get back on,
is my bass. I really need to start playing it more. I just
haven't found that motivation I need to pick it up and
start playing seriously again. I've been thinking to
myself lately, that maybe music isn't for everyone,
but I don't want to think that way though. I believe
that talent is learned, not inherited. I like bass,
but I keep procrastinating. I let myself think that
I'm not going to learn anything, that's my problem.
Another problem of mine is that I'm impatient, I know
that I'm not gonna get good overnight, but I've had a
lack of hope within myself. I found this site called
studybass.com, it has tons of tips, techniques, etc...
I found that a while ago, while I was still in this bass guitar
class, I had to drop that because I wasn't making any progress
and I felt that it was pissing the instructor off and embarassing
myself in the process.
Meanwhile, I'm still looking for work, haven't been looking as much
because I'm in the middle of a situation where I could be living
somewhere else pretty soon, but I have my doubts as well. I need
to know where I'm gonna live if I'm ever gonna get a job. I live in one
city, and go to college in another. Where I live, I have no friends, so
I'm kinda hoping that I move back down to where I grew up, that way
I don't have any issues with anything at all, I can find work, I can see
friends, I can go to school, etc... I can't figure out why we moved to
where I am now in the first place, my parents said it was cheaper, yeah
right, so you spend so much on gas two times a week so you can get to
work? On top of that, we're still broke, so we're not any better than we
were before, in fact, we are worse off than we were before, at least before,
we were close to everything. I'm sure if they had looked hard enough, they
would have found something suitable, but no, they gave up too early,
just like they always do.
I'm not here to talk all about that though. So, moving on, I'm still
trying to decide what class to take, if I can even take one at all.
I still want to work at a hotel, I've really been hoping that I can
find one at some point, hopefully this year. I think I figured out what
exactly I want to do at a hotel at a later point. I think I want to be a
Event/Conference Manager at a full service hotel. I've always been good
at planning stuff, I like doing it, I do it a lot. Less now than before because
of finances, but I still do it, I used to plan movie outings and parties with my
friends all the time, I know being an Events/Conference Manager at a full service
hotel is much more demanding in terms of work, but it's still planning, which is
something I know how to do. I wouldn't mind being the general manager at a
full service hotel, but for now, I just want to focus on what I know I can do.
I know I'll have to work my way from the bottom, but I don't mind that. It
would actually give me experience, it would give me more knowledge on more
than just one sector in a hotel. I could be a room service worker, I'm sure I
wouldn't mind doing that for a while. While I was working my way up to the top,
I'd be doing my homework, meaning, I'd be watching what the others do, and
how they do it, that way I can learn a few things. What's weird is, I wouldn't mind
being a bartender either, I would never drink alcohol, but I find it interesting to mix
drinks. It's one of those things that I like to do, but don't advertise much.
Perhaps I have my hopes up a little too high, but a man can dream can't he?
It might not be everybodies ideal job, but working in a hotel, is something I feel
that I could do for the rest of my life.
