This is my 698th 5x5 but it's nothing like any of my previous ones. The only 5x5 that possibly comes close is June 21st's 5x5 from 2010 (vimeo.com/14317574) but that was a bit different too.
Today, Friday the 13th, was another shitty day. I struggled to do anything except sleep and I couldn't even manage to do that. Once I dragged myself out of bed, I discovered that Ellie Goulding had tweeted a link to the video (youtu.be/Ap-A0RKhi2s) for her new single. (This single is the track I used in this 5x5.) When I first heard the song a few days ago I instantly fell in love with it; seeing the epic music video for it cemented my love for the tune but it also inspired me. It somehow sparked some sort of creative fire in me and filled me with ideas for today's 5x5. While I didn't actually piece together this video until Saturday night into Sunday morning, the vision I had for it stayed with me throughout. It gave me something to distract myself with from inspiration to conception and construction through me here now writing this description.
I'm really proud of what I've created. Some people won't like it while others will love it. I managed to follow the rules for this yearlong project as I laid them out for myself at the beginning of the year (vimeo.com/34111641) while doing something different and kind of capturing how I've been feeling lately. I guess you could say this 5x5 is a bit of a representation of my brain and some of my thoughts right now if that makes any sense to anyone. Without getting into any details, I'll just leave it at that.
As always, to those of you that take the time to watch, read my descriptions, like, and/or comment on my 5x5s, thank you. To the one of you that's always willing to help me and give me advice on my 5x5s behind the scenes as well as doing everything I just said, you should already know how incredibly grateful I am. It means the world to me.
Let me know what you think if you get a chance, would ya? Just saying hello would be cool too.
