Closing the 365 Project
Up until a few weeks ago, I was participating in a self-initiated daily image creation project. It went really well (for the most part I guess) until something undexpected happened in my life—I found myself in a new job.
On September 3, 2013, I started my new appointment as Graphic Communications Specialist at the University of Michigan Museum of Art. It's a position I'd been fighting for (sometimes passively, other times much more actively) since I moved to Ann Arbor in late 2008.
As it turns out, my work at the museum is every bit as enjoyable and rewarding as I'd always imagined it. I was challenged and respected in a way that I hadn't felt in my last few years of client service.
In addition to my new tasks at the museum, my attention was still split in two other important directions: the course I'm teaching at WCC and my volunteer work with 826michigan. At that point, I was busy wrapping up the Omnibus. Not to mention, I'd been making little collages in my spare time, that, for whatever reason, I couldn't bring myself to include in the #365 project.
It was about then—early Septemeber—that I realized that I'd completely forgotten about my #365 project. Days of absence turned into weeks of neglect... The project felt burdensoume and unnecessary in light of my new creative outlets.
So, this is a long way of saying that I'm exiting the #365 project and continuing to focus on the larger, more pressing issues on my plate at the moment. Thanks, if you were one of the few that followed along.
