Zero Motivation

Soooo we finally got snow here in Indy and yet I can’t get myself outside to take pictures. Just last month I was basically praying for snow so I could take pictures but now that it has come, and is in the process of melting, I have no motivation what so ever. Everyday I wake up, go to school, come home. That is seriously my life described in seven words. And the weekends aren’t much better. For some reason I just don’t want to do anything. Like deep down inside, somewhere where it can’t be found, I want to take pictures. I actually tried taking some yesterday but I felt like they were all the same as ones I have taken a long time ago. That’s how everything feels anymore, but then I try to switch things up and I don’t like the feeling of that either. I don’t know. I’m tempted to just quit photography. My family, friends, everyone is basically begging me to not quit but I feel like I’m stuck. I guess it’s kinda like I have run out of ideas, but then again it’s not. My camera comes with me everywhere I go and I still haven’t one of those moments in a long long long time where you go “WAIT! THAT IS PERFECT FOR A PICTURE!” It is just not there. I decided I would go ahead and download the pictures that I took yesterday onto my computer just to play with editing them. So I inserted the memory card into the computer and it tells me that it can’t download them. I probably spent like an hour and a half trying to figure out why it wouldn’t work and I just ended up getting soo frustrated that I quit. I’m stuck and I don’t know what to do. A small part of me wants to contintue and fight through this rough patch but a huge part of me just wants to quit. I guess I need something to inspire me. I really don’t know. I want to quit. And yet as I’m sitting here staring at the word quit, I feel like I “shouldn’t waste my talent”, as everyone says. I’m stuck.
