I wish I had more time to take photographs. I wish I had more time to cook. I wish I had more time to do the things I love. You guys ever feel like you don’t do anything fun anymore? I’ve been feeling like that for a while now. I mean I’ve been studying like crazy, thinking I just have to do this now so I can have fun later. It motivated me first, but not anymore. I mean what if I have a huge tumor stuck to my brain right now and I end up dying thinking I’ll have fun later. Unlikely as it may be it’s a possibility.
I guess the big take away from all this melancholy is that you really should not put off being happy. Sure, there are tedious things one has to keep doing, but you have to make sure you’re embracing life while you do them. The sun will set every night, but tonight may be the last time you’ll see it happen.
Here are some pictures of a sunset I saw

Yesterday as I opened my site stats I noticed that someone had searched something from my blog using a search term “melancholic city”. Now I don’t know what they were looking for because I don’t remember putting up pictures of a melancholic city. But since it was cold and rainy and windy outside and I was feeling a bit melancholic myself, I thought if they want melancholic and murky and dark, that’s what they’ll get.
So I headed out with a hood for my head and a plastic bag for my camera. I found a summer theater (basically its just an auditorium outside, and people play theater there in the summer), and some old sets. It was certainly a dark place and a bit creepy too. As since it was just by the beach I did get some pretty gloomy pictures of that too. Hope you enjoy them, and hope they aid the need for melancholy!
