So a lot of you have probably noticed it’s been a while since I’ve posted, there’s a reason for that. I posted my first caption AR Karma is a beautiful thing on December 26, 2012 almost two years ago, back then I was eager and excited for captioning I’d thought about it for a long time and my head was swarming with ideas for them. I remember the day I met my favorite requester, he commented an idea on one of my captions I accepted it and got right to work and it came out, then he gave me a few ideas five I believe and I did them all in that one day and they were all pretty good in my opinion. Now… I don’t know I’ve got plenty of pictures and when I saw them they ALL gave me ideas, but now those ideas are distant memories and my last few request captions have been, I will not mix words, forced and not my full ability and I didn’t even bother submitting them to the usual groups. I could go on but I won’t the point is, I may be at the end of my rope, a washed up has been, a keyboard with broken keys. Folks I won’t put sugar on it, I’m considering the R word, Retirement! Now nothing’s for sure yet and I do have some ideas gathering dust in my head… but now might be a good time to look for other captionists for requests. Now please understand I don’t want to do this, I always thought I’d find time for my captions and do it for years and years, and as I said I’ve been doing this for close to two years now and the last thing I want to do is retire… but I may not have a choice… for now I’m taking a leave of absence and I promise IF I chose to retire for real you will all be notified. So good bye for now.
