Supplies not keeping up

I am not doing my writing tonight and tomorrow night (8/13 & 14) cause I'm running out of index cards to write on. I did not stock up enough ink for my printer to print the cards.

I also found out that the manufacturer of the recycled index cards that I have been using is out of index cards. I need to research for other brand.

I have written more than 700,000 cards. I almost wonder if I am the biggest buyer of "environotes 3x5 recycled ruled index cards" in the past couple of months. If yes, does this project and the magnitute of the causality consumming all the index cards? And if this is a yes as well, it is pretty haunting.

To be honest, I am actually kind of happy that I do not have to write the cards tonight...

As of March 13, 2011

As of March 13, 2011, approximately 267,00 cards were written. And this is what I wrote in the middle of March when I was trying to tell people about this project:

"Another project that I am engaging in currently is an on-going performance that deals with my disconnection to the Iraq War while attempting to grapple the scale of the destruction. How can I relate myself to a war that is so remote and yet so real? Time and labor become my tools to examine the authenticity to my concern to the damages in Iraq."

Today is August 13, 2011. What this project means to me besides the fact that I know I have to finish it; I do not know anymore.
