After spending two weeks in Phoenix, I find myself back in Bakersfield and, quite frankly, in a little bit of a funk. I was pretty busy working in Phoenix with three unexpected shoots and the video shoot I originally went to Phoenix to do. When I wasn't working, I was catching up with friends. It was a pretty nice two weeks. Special shout out to Tyler and Katie for putting me up.

Now, back in Bakersfield, I am doing some freelance design work and getting ready to edit the video footage shot in Phoenix. This place is sucking the life out of me. I am so uninspired and so unmotivated here. This post was supposed to happen two days ago. Bakersfield was just a stop off for a month or two but some jobs got delayed and some travel opportunities came up so I postponed my move to LA for a couple more months.

One thing I know for certain is I need to find a way to keep shooting. My creativity and my attitude are always up when I'm shooting regularly. Even though I'm here for a purpose and working on freelance projects, I feel like I'm in limbo. The problem is, here in Bakersfield, I am so uninspired I can't find anything worth photographing. Maybe I should take this as a challenge to try and find things to photograph.

The good news is relief is on the way. I'm getting ready to look for an place to live in LA. I found some lofts in Downtown LA and some apartments online. I will be checking them out later this week. In a week I'll be going back to Phoenix to shoot a friend's wedding and shortly after that, heading to Costa Rica. If that doesn't give me a kick, I don't know what will.
