I Have Been...

I was visiting Chris' blog and saw this meme of sorts. Since blogging and I have mostly parted ways I thought it was a good way to at least post something!

Writing: Well, this morning I worked on catching up with Postcrossing. I think after sending so many postcards in February and April I got a bit burned out! Not to mention postage is expensive! I need to get back into a postcard writing groove. I am falling behind on postcrossing and will never reach 100 postcards sent at this rate! Otherwise, I never blog... The only other writing I do is keeping up my day-by-day journal, which I have been doing for a year now, and sometimes answer emails.

Reading: What is reading? My reading has mostly consisted of photography magazines, photography books, and audiobooks when I am on the treadmill. I am currently listening to The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. This is a reread for me! I really want to read book two and frankly couldn't remember what happened in book 1. Audible had a sale and both books were included so I decided to get my act together and be ready for book 3. As to the photography magazines, I am obsessed with browsing them. I found 4 that I really like and now have to decide what I want to spend money on. I can get digital subscriptions to two of them for 15 dollars a year. I think I might have to go the digital route... Postage to Canada is just too insane. If you are interested the magazines are Digital Photographer, Shutterbug, Outdoor Photographer, and Photography for Beginners.  I am not allowed to look at any more. As to photography books, I am obsessed with Bryan Peterson. I have almost all of his books and I learn something new every time I reread them. After all that, I have mostly been dabbling with novels. I start one, read for a while, and then set it aside... I don't know how to shake that!

Listening: Well, audiobooks. Maybe I should have mentioned that here instead of above. I am very proud of myself. I have successfully listened to Redshirts by John Scalzi, The House of Tomorrow by Peter Bognanni, The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller, and Legion by Brandon Sanderson. Instead of joining the gym I just bought a subscription to Audible. The Name of the Wind rocks in audio. I am so glad to be rereading it! I am just over halfway through it. Just in case anyone is interested I love Wil Wheaton as a narrator and bought a batch of books he narrates during the Audible sale. They are all written by John Scalzi so it is win/win. As to music, I haven't been listening to anything specific.

Watching: ha! Television and movies have never been something I am good at watching. If I am not watching with someone I tend to fall very far behind. I started watching Call the Midwife and really like it, but didn't finish the season. I haven't finished the last season of NCIS that I have on DVD. I did finally watch Les Miserables, though!

Looking: Through the lens of a camera, of course!!

Learning: That there are never enough hours in the day. That I am WAY too obsessed with projects and can never keep them all up. Obviously the big thing is teaching myself photography.

Feeling: Overwhelmed. There is so much that I want to do and I just do not have time for most of it. I am also really stressed out because of a bunch of things that have happened this year.

Anticipating: Nice weather to play with my camera more. Getting back into sending postcards so I can start receiving again. Hopefully getting to some good books! Maybe even blogging more regularly!

Wishing: For more hours in the day! Take today... I want to get caught up on postcards, catch-up on photo-a-day, play with my camera, go on the treadmill, listen to The Name of the Wind, read, start getting organized to get back to Project Life, etc, etc.

Loving: That I have a three-day weekend!!


  1. I love that you have a three-day weekend weekend too! Hope that means lots of time for relaxing with all your projects! :D (At least I hope you find your projects relaxing.)

  10. It's good to see a post from you Kelly. :) I can totally understand the too many projects, not enough time bit. I just try to dabble a little bit here and there but it seems I'll get focused on one thing and everything else goes out the window (lately it's catching up on PL which I've almost done!).

    Do you check out the magazines from the library? I haven't thought to do this but it sounds like a great idea for "testing" them. Photography magazines sounds like a perfect way to learn more. I do subscribe to a few blogs but they rely so much on photoshop, which I don't have.

  12. I absolutely understand the lack of blogging. This will be a very sparse month for me for sure. I always love your photos and enjoy them on Instagram!!

  13. I could have written half of your post myself. Where are the hours to accomplish all that I want to do?! Sorry you've been feeling overwhelmed. I've been taking quite a break from blogging for some time now and am slowly coming back. I found that I really needed that. Anyway, hope you'll find more hours in your day somehow to continue with your photography pursuits and everything else!
