August & September Roundup & 365

Flying Fish (218/365)

Alright, so I've been the worst person, and let this blog gather dust for an entire two months. Whoops.

Honestly, I haven't been up to much.
I went to Kitacon (an anime/nerd convention) at the end of August but other than that, and asides a few meetups with friends, life has been decidedly uneventful.
Mostly because I've not made the effort to make it eventful.
Over the past couple of months, I've lost a lot of my motivation to Get Things Done, and to Do Things. Everything takes more energy than I have, and more effort than I'm willing to put in. (Yeah I know, I suck.)

I am still working on a few goals, but really need to take another look at The List and decide how much I want to do some of those things.

Things I'm doing lately:
  • Practising Japanese on Duolingo (not for a goal, but I'm on a 94 day streak! Yay!)
  • Occasionally drawing hands (goal #001. Fill a sketchbook with artwork/studies of only one subject. I've a long way to go yet!)
  • Gathering things for another goal, so I might actually do something I always intend to do, but take ages to get around to. (It's a cheating goal really, because it's something I do do, just not nearly enough).
  • Trying to memorise every country in Africa (goal #033; I can name abour 30 off the top of my head)
  • Continuing with 365 Project (goal #65)

This time around, since I've missed two months worth of roundups, I'm not posting the individual photos from my August/September 365 Project, just screenshots from the 365 Project website. Click them to view the page and see the images at full size.

Please do go take a look, I've been practising with some different kit (70-300mm lens!) and some different concepts and techniques (high key & low key photography, 'splash' shots, surreal images, and more!)

And now, I'll go look at The List, and try to find some motivation...


  1. I love the creativity and experimentation that you bring to your 365 project. I found my motivation for completing 101 things ebbed and flowed a lot throughout the 1001 days. Congrats on your great Japanese streak. I am on a 40-day streak at Duolingo (for Spanish), and I am really enjoying the site.

    1. Thank you Marcy! Think I've lasted so long on the Duolingo streak because I use it whilst eating breakfast! Well done getting to a 40 day streak! I think Duolingo works really well, because you can do as much or as little as you like each time, which fits in nicely according to what kind of day you're having!
