Self motivation is something I constantly have to do in order to achieve anything. The first thing to do when trying to self motivate yourself is to find something new and interesting to do. It's the easy part. At first, a lot of things seem worth doing. Going the whole distance with a project (especially with a long-term project) is the hard part of doing anything. I have a few ideas about what to write on the blog and what photo projects to conduct. Moving has given me a sense of starting from scratch. It's one of the best and scariest feelings one could encounter. But enough about that. Here's what I'm working on: an article about my experience at the North University as a MLA student (the dos and donts and a whole lot more) and a photo project + article called 'An untrained eye's walk through Vienna' (or something to that effect). Deadline: the end of the month.
P.S. This is the second part of motivating yourself: publicize your intentions. Knowing that someone expects some final results may give you an incentive to work harder.
