Photography is one of my new passions and it makes me really happy. I have no expensive DSLR camera (yet), but I do have my phone and it actually works pretty well. I love looking at photography tips on different blogs because I don’t have a good camera, and I’ve learned that sometimes it’s more about the lighting and the composition of the photo than whether or not you have a $500 camera in your hands.

I find I notice more now that I am constantly looking for a good shot to take. It’s opened my eyes and really made me believe that there really is beauty in everything.   Continue reading Photography

Why do people rush through life? Why do they constantly worry about the future and think about the past and never seem to enjoy the present. There’s no need to run away from all the worries of now, that’s what life is about. Learning from your mistakes and messing up. It’s about learning to accept yourself and be happy.

I love this Talk because it’s what really made me understand introversion and helped me recognize that within myself. I ended up watching this three or four times because I showed it to my sister and then my dad and then at some point we watched it in a class I took last year.

Susan Cain also teamed up with Steelcase to make quiet offices for people in a workplace that need some space for creative thinking. This was very interesting to me, because this should totally be implemented into school, because creativity should be just as important in schools as academic intelligence.

Her blog QuietRev is also pretty amazing too. I check it out every so often and read a bunch of posts.

BONES

Bones is one of my favourite TV shows, and while it is on its final season, it will always be a show that puts a smile on my face. I’m sure everyone can relate, we might as well admit that we’ve binged watched at least one show on Netflix.

One night, however, I was bored and wasn’t sure what to watch and ended up starting Bones again from the first season (they are now on their 12th season), and just started watching it all over again and it’s been fun, almost nostalgic because I remember more episodes than I thought I did.
