30 + Priorities

I'm 30 now, i should get serious...NOT
I’m 30 now, i should get serious…NOT

Hello my dear friends,

Β  Last week was my birthday, on the 20th of January i turned 30! πŸŽ‰ Yeah i know, it’s crazy, i feel like 20 still… I have no idea how a whole decade went by so fast. My best friend from Greece came for a visit, so my birthday was a week-long fest, including endless walks all around Vienna, lots of beer, Schnapps, a Sacher-Torte from my lovely roommates and no time to update this blog! πŸ˜‡

Β  I know that since my move to Vienna i haven’t been posting a lot… I have been shooting a lot but i’m going through a weird period of not liking my work and feeling the need to re-evaluate many things. A change of scenery comes with many changes that i had not anticipated…

Β  I wanted to say that i’m sorry for not being online a lot, it’s not only my blog that i have neglected but all other social media as well. I will try my best to re-focus and organize my time so i can start posting on a more regular basis and of course not miss your posts. I’ll slap myself in the face if i have to but i’ll make this work! πŸ˜›

Β  Sending you my best wishes from a cold and awaiting snowfall Vienna,

Yours truly,

Alex V-Light

  1. Hiya Alex
    Happy (late) B-day πŸ™‚
    Just realised I haven’t been getting your posts via WordPress, I’ve missed the last half a dozen or so…DISASTER!!
    Its snowing here in the UK as well, (though my own look at the Budapest section of the Danube stayed snow-free….You wouldn’t have caught me crying, I HATE snow! hahaha)
    I hope year 30 is a great one for you.

    1. Heyyy!!! Thank you Stuart!!! πŸ˜€ Oh no, that is really a disaster!!! WordPress is sabotaging us!!! It hasn’t snowed yet…but all the forecasts talk about a lot of snow and i’m waiting patiently…I love snow…I need some snow for new photos πŸ˜€ Where is it???

  2. Happy birthday retrospectivly, Alex! All the best for the next decade! And… believe me… this strange feeling of beeing too old for your young soul, will last a long time, if not even for ever πŸ˜‰
    At the first sight of the photo, I thought you might have been caught by a radar trap …lol. Well, you could take part in the olympic games, if you would have broken through the 30 kilometers/hour. πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you dear Stefan! πŸ˜€ Hahahaha! Well i don’t know how fast i was running but i’m lucky that the police didn’t get me cause i definitely caused a scene with my craziness! ^_^

  3. Xrovia polla, Alexandra, good luck for the next decade and a lot of fun in Vienna. I was really sad I was not there to eat your Sacher-Torte, hehe, regards Mitza

    1. Hehehe πŸ™‚ Thank you very much Mitza! Well i didn’t know that i would get a Sacher-Torte, my roommates surprised me! πŸ˜€ Next year i will make a big party with lots of Sacher-Torte and you are invited of course!

      1. I might nail you down on this promise, Alexandra, because Vienna seams to be a good place for photographs, too. With some Sacher torte on the hips, taking walks is easier, hehe. Warm regards Mitza

  4. Congratulations (again) on the milestone year…I think you have the spirit that will always make you feel 20-ish – hey, I’m twice your age and most of the time I feel just late 20-ish πŸ™‚
    Come back to social media when you are ready – i do like hearing something every once in a while to know you are doing OK and are alive and well. Cheers!

    1. Thank you (again) dear Robert! πŸ˜€ I’m still struggling with returning to the world of the internet…Somehow i feel like i want to connect more with the now and i love exploring Vienna, i spend a lot of my time walking around and seeing new places. My computer right now is a place that doesn’t attract me at all…I feel bad about my absence but i think that for whatever the reason is, i need to take this time off…

    1. Thank you very much Beatrice!!! Hehe, well age is just a number! I never cared too much about that, i feel so much better now than when i was 20 so even if i could turn back time i wouldn’t πŸ˜‰

  5. Since we exchanged words on Twitter πŸ™‚ .. just wanted to add here that I feel these days in a very similar way. Or felt? As every day is a new day, isn’t it.. πŸ˜‰ Courage, Peace & Love – is what I wish. For all of Us, who feel this way?! :}

    1. Hehe, i like your positive vibe! You are right but well i’m still not totally out of this phase. I try to fight it but i still feel strongly the need to disappear from the online word and the stress of “having” to post something all the time… I take the time to enjoy the outdoors by taking really long walks, gathering inspiration etc…but i just can’t seem to sit down and start editing… I have a ton of photos just waiting to be done…

      1. πŸ˜€ and oh my… I happen to be in this exact situation! I have literally 100s of photos stored already and also having this “lost-feeling”.. Things do take time so I guess we must be patient. Now that, is not easy, isn’t it.. πŸ˜› Kind regards

  6. Hi Alex, Sorry I missed your birthday. 30 is a special milestone. Also, I wanted to tell you to not fret over your lack of posting or not loving your work. It is usually a thing that happens before one has a growth spurt as an artist. I find it good to start studying other’s work during these times and to learn something new. It often leads you down a path that inspires wonderful things. Enjoy and Happy Belated Birthday to you.

    1. Thank you very much Rich πŸ˜€ I don’t really care much to celebrate birthdays to be honest, it’s just another year gone by, doesn’t really mean anything. I certainly don’t feel like 30 should πŸ˜› Hehe! And you are absolutely right, that’s a really good tip πŸ˜€ I think we are all entitled to just step back for a while, relax and why not learn something new in the meantime! Stressing and pushing ourselves to work when clearly inspiration is missing doesn’t usually bring any good results. Thank you once again! I hope you have a lovely day too! πŸ˜€ Many greetings from the beautiful Vienna!
