Elise has been picking up the blogging slack as of late and has been giving me pointed looks concerning the Thomas part of EliseandThomas so here I am with some belated updates, after a terribad winter we are still stuck (mostly) indoors working because of how many projects we have and the fact that we want to grow them as aggressively as possible.
Game of Thrones is over until the next season so I have withdrawn to whisky and playing Guild Wars 2. Having lost two of my favourite shows (GoT & Gotham) in a few short months has been pretty traumatic- I haven’t lost a child but I imagine the sensation is similar (I jest internet, I jest!).
Orange is the New Black has attempted to fill the void, but regardless of critical acclaim, I am left feeling estranged from what used to be a thoroughly engrossing drama. I will finish the season out of principle, but we shall see if I revisit it next year.
3 new projects coming out very soon(ish), one of which will probably eclipse all of our other endeavors by multiple orders of magnitude. Exciting/stressful/horrifying stuff, but progress even when it involves considerable risk (and reward) feels very satisfying.
I find that ambition is the single most defining factor behind success and so we stride for greater heights, ever onwards.
I feel pretty bad that my primary enjoyment from this summer weather has been my sporadic daily pipe breaks with intermittent walks around the neighbourhood. Something to address once our schedule clears up somewhat.
Although I am sure that by the time our current projects finish up we will find more things to tackle. At least we are not working a 9-5 job. This is always a comforting thought when I see my peers earning garbage money whilst making their company richer and richer. The best thing about owning your own *everything* is that all the graft we put in is into ourselves. We work it and eventually (hopefully) reap the rewards.
No way in hell would I do what I do for someone else.
I will try to post something more substantial over the coming weeks but time being my most limited resource, I find myself having to focus more on my professional commitments even if that means this blog will be left drowning in cat pictures until my return.
For reasons unknown to me, even when I am outside, I tend to taking isolated photographs of either depressing or abstract subject matter.
All the photographs in this update were taken on a beautiful summer day and yet my lens seems to seek out the oddities as opposed to the beauty around me. At least I am snapping far more photographs than I used to, no small part due to my love of my Olympus XZ-1.
Its crazy how a super sharp, pocket-able camera makes all the difference in terms of enjoyment.
