The Abandoning of Project 365

So, for those of you who have read my blog before (or, indeed, if you're my contact on Flickr) you'll probably be aware that I started Project 365 about a month ago and, as you can probably guess from the title of this post, today is the day that I'm announcing my quitting of said project.

I decided that, rather than writing a lengthy description on a photo on Flickr explaining why I'm quitting the project, I should write a blog post explaining the situation that I could just post a link to, which would save time and effort in the long run.

The main reason for quitting my 365 is actually the same reason I was doubting starting it in the first place: I ended up taking photos because I had to rather than because I had an idea and wanted to take a photo. The second- and arguably more important- reason is college. I have a total of 12 days before all of my artwork has to be completed and the art exhibition goes up. I also have 19 days until my first exam. I desperately need to do well in my exams to secure my place at Winchester university and, although in maths I'm pretty much guaranteed to get an A, grades in my other subjects are much less concrete. Especially since my confidence in my English grade has been knocked after finding out that I didn't do so well in my coursework.

Anyway, pretty conventional reasons for people to quit their 365 projects. Sorry I couldn't be more original.

On another note, I've decided to try and update this blog more frequently and my Flickr less frequently, reserving my longer photo descriptions for this blog. Which basically means that, rather than boring my Flickr contacts all the time, I'll be boring my blog followers instead. But only 4 people follow my blog (including myself) so it isn't a big deal. :)

  1. I think that updating your blog more than flickr is actually a really great idea. I do the same thing. Actually I would have finished my 365 in about a month if I had done it every day... instead I am on day 80 something and trying to finish it in 2 years... but at this point I think that is even pushing it. I look forward to your blogs!
