On Monday, I will be leaving New Jersey and starting a new chapter of my life in Chicago. I’ll be going to graduate school there for biomedical visualization (which is a fancy way of saying “medical illustration,” which is, y’know, drawing kidneys and stuff). I will be ceasing my daily photo activities. You will, however, still be able to find me on Snapshot Optimism, an occasional photoblog that I’ll be keeping up, as well as JosyDoodle, where I’ll show off my kidney drawings and stuff.

I am prone to enthusiastically starting projects, followed by enthusiastically forgetting about them two or six weeks later. But here, I wanted to prove that I could keep the ball rolling on something (that wasn’t immediately crucial to my life, like work or school). With the exception of a few short out-of-town excursions, I’ve posted every single day since December 14, 2006–which, including today, makes a total of 606 posts on this blog and 475 over on OTDP (which only began 4/30/07). I’ve loved it, I’ve hated it, I’ve been super-involved, and I’ve cared less, but I did it. I think I’ve accomplished what I set out to do here; I can only hope you’ve enjoyed the ride and maybe even learned something about Monmouth County, NJ. 🙂

Tomorrow will be my last (and 607th/476th) post.

I’ll miss these blogs.
