slaving like the bitch i am

as per usual- i’m too busy. it sucks so bad. I’ve got 5 things to shoot this weekend. my main job on Sunday. the ekka and surely many more things that will consume all of my time. sure i love getting shoots and earning money and what not but i need more jacob time.

alot has happened in the last 6 months. I’ve gone from posting nightly, staying on top of my photo bank, getting shacked usually twice a week to struggling to post once every three days (while harboring more desire to post than ever), having 6 months of photos backlogged and finding waves once a fortnight.

so to begin the end of this epically tasteless whinge i thought i’d mention how much i enjoy the other things. like my friends, charlie, shooting… and working at goodtime- which i find strange. I’ve gone from asking to not work more than 2 days to working at least 4 a week. I’m slowly earning and learning more and more about life under the Austen Matriarch that rules over the premises .

i think all i need is balance (like i tried to obtain in this post with smiles and tears) i need to start bailing on people more and making sure i can please myself because: how could i possibly please others if self-love is not overwhelmingly present at all times- in the non arrogant kind of way.

here’s to work!

the espresso paradox considers the point where the espresso’s speed benefits result in a longer completion time than if one had not spent time acquiring and consuming the espresso in the first place.  this point is mostly controlled by one’s desire to consume the espresso, not the resulting time gains.
