I’m thinking it’s high time I go around Miramichi with my camera and take a bunch of pictures.
I don’t explore enough. I usually go from point A to point B. Even if I take my time and soak it all in, I usually have a set goal in doing so. Maybe I’m just concerned about getting lost. This applies to even my photography: I have to play around more than I used to. I’m struggling to remember advice given to me at the wedding regarding taking outstanding pictures, but one thing I got from it is that I’m just too content to just “take” the picture instead of building it or searching for a way to make it memorable. I don’t disagree.
This comes to mind when I think about other areas of my life. Career wise, I have always been looking for specific and easily-attainable work. I first got into the call centre industry before I was even finished my BA. My move outside of Miramichi was mainly through that same company. When I finally decided I had enough, I ended up working for another call centre because I knew there were jobs around, and I knew I could do it; it was also one of those employers that advertise on the government’s job bank site.
I get intimidated by the open-endedness of things sometimes. I should embrace it.
