One of my goals over the NY was the cut back on buying stuff i dont need or make full use of. Last NY (2012) my goal was to get into photography. I knew nothing about it. Well i started teaching myself, joined some free clubs, went to a few meets but that quickly ended. I found by March my sony DSLR was collecting dust on the shelf. I never used it from march til sept when i took it out to a wedding. During this time of not using it, i kept saying how i was going to take the camera with me to places but constantly i would not do it and i lost interest in these groups that i stopped going to them. I took the cam with me to a few places by myself (cause i dont know anyone into photography) but i got bored and it didnt burn a ball of excitement in me. When i uses it i just didnt feel the burning excitment one should have. It didnt feel natural, it felt forced in me trying to make myself get into it. The camera has been sitting since sept...not even once touched it so i figured id try to sell it but only if i could get a good return as i spent almost $600 on it. It took a good couple months to get a serious buyer but i got one last night willing to pay my price of $500 firm and we met today and made the deal. In a way im glad im unloading such an expensive toy that jist sat on my shelf (and also consider myself lucky to get this good of a return back as cameras resale value drop like flies). But also im a bit sad to see it go cause it was such a nice camera. I kinda still do have a bit of excitment for photography but i know its nothing like what my true interests are that bring a smile to my face just thinking about it.
