i want to work in a bookstore
i don't want to be a photographer anymore
today is one of those days when I wish I wasn’t a photographer.
Now don’t get me wrong, being a photographer is cool and I love it, especially when I’m actually taking pictures. It’s every other thing about this job that stresses me out.
The days and weeks leading up to the actual work, the days and weeks that follow said work, and the days and weeks looking for the next job. It’s stressful, it can be overwhelming and it can suck. A lot!
Like it does right now.
Right now, I’m trapped in the days and weeks that follow the work and I feel like I’m in over my head. There’s so much editing to be done and at the same time, I’m partially stressing over the next job.
I just want to work somewhere else, like in a bookstore.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not looking down on anyone who works in one or saying it’s easier work than photography. I’m actually just trying to imagine myself in a calm place because as I just described, my mind is currently a photo-chaos. And I can’t think of anything more calming than books or the sea.
You know what?
like love to work in a bookstore by the sea.
Oh well, back to photography. It’s the only thing I know how to do. I would enjoy it more if it wasn’t my job though.
I hope you’re having a better week. Feel free to reply to this letter, I would definitely love to hear from you.
Talk to you soon.
