3 New Things: August Edition
For the past few months, I try to attempt 3 new things that I’ve never done! So far, my track record hasn’t been so hot but I have high hopes. I’ve actually learned a lot. I’m learning just how much you can do in a month (the answer: not as much as I thought). Here’s what I’ve done so far: made popsicles, created my own necklace, planted herbs, and took a class on terrarium making!
So what’s up for August? Well I’m working around my spending freeze so I needed to do things that won’t break that vow:
- Design postcards and send to friends and family. Be creative, practice calligraphy and use lots of color.
- Go skinny dipping. It just has to happen.
- Actually record a video with my iPhone and edit with Photoshop.
If you keep track, you might notice that #3 is the same as last months. I was able to research a lot more and purchase a membership through Lynda.com (for tutorials). I’m excited to record a video during our time at our family’s lakehouse later this month!
I have high hopes for August. This month I’ll begin freelancing full-time, joining an amazing studio here in Columbus, travelling to Chicago, relaxing in Michigan, and (hopefully) accomplishing these three things!
A weekly email where I share things that made me stop and consider. Never sponsored, no affiliate links.
i have been fooling around with video lately. i even had a video i submitted picked for airing at RollerCon (huge roller derby convention held in Vegas).
it’s been fun and frustrating at the same time since i have limited equipment and software and, um, TIME!
maybe at our lunch we can talk newb video!
I’m excited to see how #2 turns out! Let me know! ;)
This makes me want to try all manner of new things! I love that you’re doing this. What a great thing to hold yourself to.
Allie! You have to go skinny dipping! I did it late at night in Florida in Jan. anddd there is nothing more liberating and i was cracking up the entire time! SO FUN!
Hahaha. I remember skinny dipping when I was about 20 with a bunch of friends in the sea in Cape Town (freezing cold water!). Good luck!
Skinny dipping is the best. It is seriously the definition of freedom!! Have a blast!
I cannot wait to see how #3 turns out! I’m really interested in getting into video too. Oh and lynda.com is amazing! I get a free subscription through work, but I would pay. It’s that great.
