After two years of effort I managed to get into a graduate program at one of the best universities in the country. For the first few weeks I had loads of energy and loved every minute of it.
However, I then got a stack of work at once, and since then I have been behind and this has left me exhausted and frustrated.
I know it is possible for me to catch up, but somehow my motivation is gone. I either do the minimum I can get away with, or sometimes I don't even do that. I knew from the beginning there would be lots of work and I looked forward to it, but I had no idea that this was going to happen,
I know I must just get through every day, but how do I get the joy back again?
I was working through loads of photographs for a project that requires illustrations.
These photographs took me back to good times, hard times, happy times, times I would rather forget.
There are beautiful moments that I want to relive. I can see the energy and the Love of my grandchildren, and the wisdom in a photo of my dad in his last days.
