Normally, if I am uninspired, I get out my inspiration posts where I post about other photographers who inspire me. I actually have one drafted that I could queue up for later this week, but I just wanted to inform readers that I am stuck. I feel uninspired. I should be out and about, taking photographs of everything. This winter is rather mild for Wisconsin. When I leave for work in the morning, I can hear birds. It's kind of weirding me out, but I dig it. Alex, Jessica, and I walked to Alterra for lunch the other day. It was sunny and slightly windy, but still in the 40s. I don't know if that is what is throwing me off or the fact that I finally have a car. I have a car. Did I tell you?

It's a total junk car, but I love it anyways. When I say "junk car", I don't mean,"Oh, it's an old car, slightly dented, blah blah blah." No, I do not exaggerate at all when I say this is a junk car. The inside of the passenger door is covered in plastic. The heater just barely works. Just barely to the point that I have to layer so I don't freeze at night in the car. My car is "warm" when I can no longer see my breath. Hmm, let's see what else? Oh! One of the struts rusted through so I've got a fun contraption my cousin built to keep it from sticking out in the trunk. Mind you, this car was a gift. I've never had my own car. How have you been getting around? a co-worker asked me. My best friend is the bestest friend in the whole wide world and let me use her car when she didn't need it. My mom also helped me out and let me use her car on the weekends when Jessica worked. It was a pain in the butt, but I got through the past three months that way. Now, it just feels weird to have a car and because it's super junky, I'm almost afraid to over-drive it, aside from necessity. Also, gas is expensive. Not that I didn't know that already, but it's another factor as to why I'm not driving around town everyday.

So there it is. That is what is going on in my life and why I have been absent from my blog. As soon as I get my mojo back, I will post regularly. I promise. For now, enjoy my favorite song from Fleet Foxes' Helplessness Blues album. It is called The Shrine / An Argument.
