The difference between capturing the moments and creating them

July 12, 2018

The #100dayproject has come to an end, and I am thoroughly pleased to wave goodbye. When I came up with the plan for how I would participate this year, I thought I was choosing something easy - that way I could keep up with little-to-no pressure to "create" every day. Taking pictures is something I already do quite often, and I was armed with a brand, new camera, so this should've been a breeze, but it wasn't. I'm glad it's called a project and not a challenge, though, because I felt less pressure to keep up, especially on the days where I just didn't feel like taking a picture.

Some days aren't photo-worthy. Some days are so amazing that I don't think to stop and take a photo. Some days the lighting is terrible. Some days the pictures don't come out good no matter how many different angles I snap.

30 Before 30 - Another Update

July 8, 2018


It's been two years since my last 30 before 30 update, and it's been five years (!) since I first blogged about it. I'm definitely due for an update, and in honor of this day, which is my last birthday before the dirty thirty (!!!), here it is.

Filter the Fluff, Vol. 6 - Nutrition Edition

June 28, 2018

Oh, look! It's time for another edition of filter the fluff!

Every now and then, I come across really well-written pieces on the interwebs and get the urge to share. Whether it aligns with my viewpoint or not, I only have one rule: it should be thought-provoking. Lately, it seems like all the food and wellness-themed posts have been jumping out at me, so today's roundup is a very special nutrition edition. Grab a cup of coffee/tea, pull up a chair, and settle in for some interesting foodie reads.

It's been a fun run, Netflix.

It's time for this little series of mine to come to a close.

I've been sporadically posting these roundups for over three years, and in that time, my affinity for Netflix as a whole has waned. Lately, I find myself clicking on Hulu, HBO, or Crackle more often than the Netflix icon. It almost reminds me of how I started logging into Facebook more often than Myspace back when I was in college. One day I realized I hadn't logged into Myspace in months, and I didn't even miss it. Well, history may soon repeat itself with Netflix.
