Ok so I was gonna turn in my book last week Thursday, it is over a week later and it is still not turned in. I had everything done. I am not one to shy away from problems or issues that arise, I have seen almost everything go wrong with all kinds of projects since I have been doing this a while. But I found out the upload file size limit is 2 gbs. I have talked to multiple tech guys over there and there is nothing they can change about it. My file is 3.4 gbs. That’s ok. I will just compress my files down and I spent a week doing that. And then they tell me they were wrong, it is 1.6 gbs max file size upload. Ok. I will fix it. So I’m working on it and now my computer hangs on exporting the pdf. It is an 800 page document, so I know it was going to be tough on my computer. But it has been 2 straight days of crashes. I have deleted tons of stuff, I have cleared all the ram issues, I compressed files even further and no pdf. Also, it takes almost 2 hrs to export this pdf before it tells me it didn’t work. I have been at this all week. Taking a break tonight. But it will be turned in sooner or later.
Also, I was just reading what I wrote last week and wanted to add something. This 800 page book sums up the last 3 years of moving city to city, it sums up my excessive use of my phone as my main camera during that time, but wanted to add that it also sums up my use of social media. I deleted all my accounts like a month or so ago, which kinda makes sense why I feel like I’m ready to go back to a regular camera. I wasn’t mister post every 5 mins, but I would post regularly. And I really got into story mode on ig and snapchat and often found myself in time loops that kind of led to “projects”. For example the squirrels, on snapchat I would try to get a snap of a squirrel everyday. It was easy because there was like 100 of them living on my block at the time. That turned into a 12 page feature along with the cover of an issue of Hamburger Eyes. Anyways, I’m rambling. I’m excited to turn in this book and move on to the next thing.
