More macro pictures

More macro pictures

Been a while again. I can’t seem to keep an schedule for writing ^^’
I haven’t really played games much which means there haven’t been that much to write about πŸ˜€ I’ve been outside taking pictures. Spring is my 2nd favourite season, nature is waking up and flowers starting to bloom. Makes amazing pictures! But also you start to notice more animals!
I’ve decided to apply for an education for photography, which is why I need to practice even more πŸ˜€ The applications opens around December so I have good time to put everything together meanwhile. I need to practice more on my Swedish, mainly speaking and writing. I also need to figure out how to do a portfolio of my photos and which ones to choose. If you have done it or have ideas please comment πŸ™‚
I’ve been also thinking of making separate blog, or subblog, where I could “dump” all my pictures as I take so many pictures and when you can only pic so few for a blog post it’s a bit frustrating πŸ˜€

This bunch isn’t just macro pictures, even tho those are what I mainly take nowdays πŸ˜€ I just love the closeups. I also love taking pictures of animals, I’m especially proud of the squirrel ones, they look so cute! πŸ˜› also sorry that there are so many of them, just couldn’t choose! πŸ˜€

Today was such a nice day, it was supposed to rain but I saw sun lurking behind the clouds so I tried my luck with mother nature and went out to take some makro pictures. Mission successful! πŸ™‚
It did rain in the end but I was finished and already heading home!
I’m so glad and proud I actually went out and didn’t stay cooped-up ^^’ Also the pictures turned out really great.
Spring is my 2nd favourite season, right after Autumn. It’s not too cold and it’s not too warm and it’s so refreshing to be outside (until the pollen hits!).

Lately I’ve been neglecting my blog a lot but I’ve been doing some inner demon hunt which is quite exhausting. So going outside is good! I also get to do what I enjoy! Maybe one day I get that whole blog scheduling to work again.

But here, enjoy my pretty pictures ^^ Click the pictures if you want the giant version.

30 Day Photography Challenge

30 Day Photography Challenge

Some time last month I stumbled upon a cool 30 Day Challenge, a Photography Challenge. It’s from a blog called Little Bennet and the actual post is from 2012!
There are millions of different challenges but the themes in this one caught my eye! πŸ™‚
As it’s already 4th of January I’m going to post the past ones all at ones, I might group up the pictures or just post them one by one. Depends on the feel of the day πŸ˜€

Here are the themes and my Day 1-3 below. Hope you enjoy!

Day 1 Self portrait
Day 2 What You Wore (I started on 2nd of January which is why I have the same clothing as on Day1 picture :P)
Day 3 Clouds It rained whole yesterday which is why I uploaded this one instead. It’s couple weeks back on early morning πŸ™‚

 

Day 4 Something Green Bulbasaur <3

Early Morning Shenanigans

Early Morning Shenanigans

So New Year New Me huh? Nah, I’m not really like that. I like myself just the way I am (well at least most of the time). Lot of you probably made some New Year Resolutions? I did one, I promised myself that I wouldn’t make any New Year Resolutions. I have to be honest to myself, I can never keep them. That’s the only I’ve been able to keep πŸ˜€
A lot of bad things happened in 2016, Brexit, USA got new orange weasel and many celebrities died. But for the lasts days of 2016 I wanted to find list of all the good things that happened! We seem to forget the good things when so many bad things happen (me included). This list is from Buzzfeed but it’s original source is from Tumblr, I’ll list only few of them:

  • Leonardo DiCaprio finally won the Oscar!
  • Tiger and manatee numbers are growing!
  • Giant pandas are no longer endangered
  • 500 elephants were relocated to a better, safer and bigger home.
  • Scientists figured out how to link robotic limbs with the part of the brain that deals with intent to move so people don’t have to think about how they will move the limb, it can just happen.
  • Coffee consumption has been proved to help curtail cancer and suicide rates.
  • We made massive strides in Alzheimers’ prevention (seems like the creator’s grandmother has the same fear as I have. My grandfather had Alzheimers and I’m really scared that I might get it. Yes it’s low probability but still).
  • There’s new Harry Potter book (and a movie!)
  • Pokemon Go players went insane with placing lure modules near hospitals for sick kids.

And that’s just fraction of the good things! What I’m trying to learn myself is that I’m allowed to feel sad and bad things, it’s life. They’re part of it. However they don’t need to(SHOULDN’T) take the whole part of your life.

I’ve learned a lot from last year:
  • I don’t work well under massive stress (I work well when there is little bit stress to keep me competitive)
  • Due to stress my anxiety grew and I sought help from therapy. I have a long way to learn how to manage things when it comes to panic attacks but I will get there by baby-steps
  • Due to stress I got diagnosed with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), which put my mind at ease that it’s nothing too serious. It’s just annoying but I’ve ordered cook books and I’m working on a diet and it should be manageable with it!
  • I’m very creative when I put mind on it! When I stopped working (to learn more Swedish) my creativity bloomed! I did Christmas cards by myself which I haven’t done in at least 10 years. I was so proud of them that I almost didn’t want to send them πŸ˜€
  • I will learn new things really fast if I focus and have proper means to learn.
  • I take amazing photographs!
  • I’m not that bad at drawing!
  • I love writing!
  • I’m introvert and I’m proud of it! I’m not broken! I just need to charge my batteries after seeing a lot of people.
  • I enjoy streaming!
I said I didn’t make any New Year Resolutions, I did however made small list of “goals” for next year.
  • Write write write x 3
  • Draw things!
  • Take photos (+ finish the online course for photographing and Photoshop)
  • Learn more Swedish
  • Read more!
  • Keep up with the diet and take walks to lose weight
  • Stream more (webcam+mic)
  • Learn to recognize anxiety patterns and work with it to prevent panic attacks

This post became a little bit differentΒ version that I was thinking but I’m quite happy with it! Thank you for reading and Happy New Year! πŸ™‚

#IntPiPoMo 2016 41-50

I left these little bit too late, was busy with work and I was hoping to get good weather for Β Bob travels pictures (which didn’t work). Overall I’m still quite happy how all these turned out πŸ™‚ I decided to not use any Photoshop on these pictures just so show how amazingly pretty Final Fantasy 14 is! πŸ™‚Β For the last 10 pictures, it’s Summer
