So I'm wildly behind on my Marvelous Monday post, mostly because, well, I haven't been feeling particularly inspired lately. When I wear cute outfits, I forget to take photos or the place I do take photos is overrun by kittens, but for the most part, I just spend my time being lazy in my pajamas. I mean, they're cute pajamas, but I'm not going to take pictures in them. That would be silly.
Next week's Marvelous Monday will go better, assuming I remember to ask my companion to take a picture of my outfit.
That's what it is, mostly: having to take pictures. I'm okay with being photographed, of course, but I'm not happy with the way in which I have to go about doing it. I still don't have a tripod, and I have to rely on setting my camera down on stable surfaces that might not yield the best background. The pictures in my bedroom are always taken on my dresser, and I'm tired of it, you know? And I kind of hate asking people to take my picture because it just feels so egocentric and silly. Of course, blogging about what I wear is pretty egocentric, but it's not that bad a thing to be. I just don't like other people thinking it of me. Which is absurd. I know.
I'm on the hunt for a tripod so I can be a reliant self photographer, but I don't have the money to spend on one yet. Soon, though, I hope. I really, really hope. It would be nice. Because my university is gorgeous, and it would be nice to treat you guys to pictures of the same quality with prettier backgrounds.
I also feel a bit inadequate with my point-and-shoot, even though I do love it. It's been through the wringer, I swear (the lens mechanism won't work properly, but the camera itself is fine, so I love it even more), but it still takes decent pictures. But I read through other, good blogs and just feel like I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing because my camera isn't an SLR and I don't have the "necessary" equipment and my room is always a mess and what am I even doing.
Don't worry, we'll return to our regularly scheduled blog thing later. I'm just in a bit of a slump.
As a reward for reading this, have a picture of a kitten!
