365 Photo-A-Day Challenge: Week 4

Another week of pictures! I really am proud of myself that I've been able to keep up with this New Years Resolution so far. I know taking a photo and uploading it every day doesn't seem like it would be too much of a hassle, but I've been enjoying the challenge of having to think up a subject for each prompt and not letting myself forget to take a picture for that day. All in all, this is a hobby I'm really beginning to enjoy!

Day 22: A Passion

Even though I haven't really been able to indulge on this blog about how much I've enjoyed vlogging and filming videos, I hope that I'll be able to change that at some point. One of my resolutions was to keep up with my vlogging, and I haven't done that thus far. But I recently shot a fun tag video with my now-boyfriend and once I'm done combing through the footage (there was a LOT of it), I'll be able to edit and upload the video! And I've already got a script written for my first vlog of February, and I'm hoping to be able to send it soon.

Day 23: Bump

It was extremely difficult to figure out what to take a picture of for this prompt. I remember saying "Bump? Seriously? What am I supposed to make of that?!"

But then I remembered that my dog loves to burrow under blankets and covers, and there is always a bump showing where she is hiding, so that nobody accidentally sits on her. Just pull back the covers, and there she is!

Day 24: Drops

For this picture, I could only think of two things that were drops: Gumdrops, the candy, and eye drops, the thing I managed to sweet talk my optometrist into not giving me when I was younger. I would fake-cry and everything, and it always worked.

So technically this is not a picture of gum drops, bu JuJubes. And my answer to that fact is this: They didn't have any gumdrops on sale at Wal-Mart that day, get off my case! XDD

 Day 25: Upside Down

Now, for the record, I was upside down when I took this picture, just to be in keeping with the theme. But my phone, of course, has an auto-rotate feature, and so the picture came out rightside-up. Of course that wouldn't do. I flipped the picture using the photo setting on my phone, and BOOM!.

For those that are curious what this picture actually is, it is from a poster on the wall in my boyfriend's room. The top line reads something around the lines of "You may ask, why is Charles Darwin riding a dinosaur in outer space?" and the bottom line says, "Because Science Is Fucking Awesome!" - Pretty great poster if I do say so myself.

Day 26: Connected

I'm not sure whether or not I took a photo of these before and posted them on here, but in case I didn't, I'll tell you what these are. I found these cards listed at 75% off at my school's bookstore. I love searching around in there and finding treasures, it happens fairly often. Anyway, these cards all had pictures involving women and some sort of informative caption. When I found them, I realized that four of these cards each suited my 4 best friends perfectly!

As I wrote about in a previous post, I want to send something to my friends through the mail in the near future. I want to tell them things that I can only truly tell them in writing (all of them good things, of course). I haven't gotten around to writing in these cards and sending them off yet, because I really want to take my time with the messages in these cards; I don't want to rush anything. Either way, these cards will be a reason I will continue to stay connected to my friends, and that's why I chose these as my subject.

Day 27: Too Much

If I recall correctly, I wasn't in the best mood on this day, and I'm sure that was partly because of the mess in my room. My mother helped me gut it out and clean it on a Saturday not too long ago, and already things are piling up and getting messy again because I haven't had time to really and truly organize everything, especially my desk. So this was my way of showing how it all feels like Too Much right now, with everything, quite literally, piling up all around me.

Day 28: Pulling

For most of this day I was stuck for what picture I could take that would constitute "pulling." The first thing that popped into my head was the expression "pulling at my heart strings", so I searched my campus for something really cute or positively adorable to take a picture of. When I got home at the end of that day I realized; I hadn't found anything to take a picture of!

That`s when the idea hit me. I called out, "Nikki! Come here girl!" and, like clockwork, my little half-Chihuahua half-Pomeranian came trotting over, her nails on the hardwood making these adorable 'click, click, click' noises.

Let me tell you, it took a while to get her to stay still long enough for me to get a decent picture of her. Just as I would get my shot focused, she'd start sniffing and turn her head, then the picture was ruined. Eventually, of course, I got the shot, and there it is before you :)

Already hard at work with my pictures for week 5, and I can't wait to show you guys.
