i think Eric nailed it for me when he said this:
Learning can happen this way as well— you can hit a “plateau” where you don’t find anything interesting. Your curiosity dies a little bit— and you feel less like a child, and more like a “serious” grown-up.
i started a new job in December and I've been learning A LOT! more than i expected, actually. there are days when i get home and can barely stay awake - my brain feels so full! it makes me wonder if this is why i'm so unmotivated to get out and shoot. i have all these great ideas for shooting on the streets but at the end of the day, i just can't get my ass out there.
ugh. someone push me out the door!
