I find myself in a challenging spot this month. It’s not something I am happy about, but it really needs to happen. I tried to make everything work out, but it is too much to handle.
I’m taking a break from Local Exploration.
I’m not exactly sure how I managed to get this far, but it all caught up to me really quick a few weeks ago – I have been running on all cylinders and I finally crashed. How not having a car since June of last year didn’t stop me in my tracks, I’ll never know.
Monday through Friday I work my 9-5 job, and at night, I am busy editing photos and posting articles on my site. I will typically work on that until 11 pm every week day. On the weekends, I might get out hiking once or twice (sometimes more). I would also try to work on my Zazzle store too. I have repeated this process for a long time without much rest and it finally caught up with me.
Don’t think of this as the end of Local Exploration though! It’s more of a much needed vacation away from the hobbies that I love far too much to put down. I don’t know how long I will be away, but I will still share some photos on Facebook from time to time.
In the meantime, please use the site as a resource to our region and the wildlife that can be found within it. After all, that was why I started this site in the first place. 🙂
