jack and the beanstalk

Even though I’ve received my letter-pressed business cards and the Nikkor 70-200 VR II lens today, I feel blue. Heck, I also managed to sketch some really nice ideas for this logo I’m working on – after two whole days of a creative block.

Acquiring material goods always makes most people happy / excited, even if it is only for a short while. But I’ve never been excited with shiny new things – especially when I’ve just received them. The excitement builds once I start using them and receive validation and positive feedback.

I could classify today as a red dot day but the blues have come on only during the latter half. The workout session at the gym must have triggered it because despite an increase in the weights, sets and repetitions, I felt like a loser. In contrast, unlike most other red dot days, I also got a lot accomplished today.

The melancholy blues.
