Day 4

What get's you excited about life?

Jostlyn: Being married, realizing my life is just starting. Talking about future plans and goals. Getting new clients. Making goals realities.

Carson: My wife, my future family, my dreams!

Day 3

What’s the most sensible thing you’ve ever heard someone say?

Jostlyn: I have a lot of "sayings" that I love, but I didn't actually hear anyone "say" them.. so I think for this year and the thing that applies to me most is what my mom told me when I was feeling down about my work and comparing myself to others. "Don't compare your beginning to someone else's middle or end." I'm just starting my life and career and have a long way to grow and progress and I should be happy I'm as far as I am :)

Carson: "Don't take a blaster into a lightsaber fight."

Day 2

Who do you sometimes compare yourself to?

Jostlyn: Specifically? Or general. I'm going with a general response. Other artists. Photographers. People who inspire me. It always starts out good you know. I'm being inspired by them. And sometimes it stays at a good thing. But sometimes if I linger on them too long, I feel like I'm lame and my work is lame. Blah. Just when it gets to the point where I'm close to being who I want "to be" artistically wise, I snap and realize I'm just stuck in this mode where I just keep moving forward because I have to... with the hopes of one day getting where I want to be and hopefully won't be stuck forever where I'm at right now. I fear I might always feel this way. Are all artists tortured? I don't know about that. 

Carson: My wife. She's consistently more productive than me and it makes me feel bad. I'm a naturally lazy person unfortunately and I know that. I don't know how she is able to work so hard all the time and yet still have enough of a smile on her face to tell me she loves me when we go to bed at night. She's my hero in everything that she does and the greatest example I've ever had.

365 days of thought provoking questions: He said She said style.

I found this awesome site that lists 365 thought provoking questions and I decided that's what we're going to do on our blog every single day! (and maybe fill you in on our lives too.. I've failed at that recently and life is busy and sometimes lame but sometimes exciting and I should blog more. One day I'm going to pull it all together and be one of those cute people who have a cute blog and a cute life and make people jealous. Just you wait. Until then.... haha).

Day 1: When was the last time you tried something new?

Jostlyn: I tried a new editing style last week, and I love how it turned out!

Carson: Just a couple weeks ago when I decided to quit my day job and rely on our video revenue to pay for our daily lives!

Almost 3 months later!

Wow, have I failed! I wanted to do weekly updates and that just didn't happen. I took on too much work and it really got the best of me....
