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.

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....
