Four Unrelated Things

Filed under: 365 Days Portrait, Dating/Relationships, Men — Elle September 26, 2007 @ 1:23 am

I want to date a creative. Well, actually, I don’t want to date anyone. But I want to get to know/make out with/fall for a creative type. It’s been such a long time since I’ve been with a musician and I don’t think I’ve ever been with a writer. That’d be incredibly interesting to try.

Kyle and I kissed for the first time a few days ago. I am finishing a piece about it. It will not go on the blog.

I’ve been recycling men who I have already been with. The parade of old flames continues through this weekend. Lately, I have no desire to meet anyone new. But I am actually kind of dreading the prospect of seeing the several exes in town. I have an irrational fear that I will run into one while with another. But with three four five of them in Boston at once, this might not be so irrational.

I am going to take one self-portrait a day for a year as part of the 365 Days project. Deleted my Flickr account though, so photos will go on here. Today’s is a window reflection of me in bed with Eeyore. You can see Linnaean Street right below me. I kind of want to take a picture at the exact same time everyday to capture whatever moment I’m caught in. I wonder how feasible that would be.

    There are some easy scripts that you can put on your mac (you have a mac, I think?) that will take a photo with the built in camera everyday… could set that, I guess, if you wanted.

    why’d you delete your flickr account?

  3. Lacey Says:

    That’s a pretty cool idea, but that Flickr group looks like a pain!

    Writers come with a lot of baggage usually. But they are also intriguing people.
    Not to generilize, but still

    I agree with the wanting to date a creative type. I’ve been bored with everyone else lately…

    back before the were webcams or flickr or really even cameras on phones that linked to blogs I had a mini polaroid camera that I got in tokyo and took a photo a day for a whole year.
    the idea was that in a year a lot of interesting things will happen to a person. but all of those interesting things can usually be summed up in about a months time, so the rest of the days all blend and nothing happens to distinguish them. taking a photo a day didn’t change those days but looking at the pictures now gives me a sense of everyday and made even the uneventful days more meaningful as I experimented with new ways of capturing some detail for a particular day.
