From Kristin’s Instagram: “Join me for #Thursday3! my weekly selfie photo challenge — snap a picture, caption it with 3 right-now about you facts, and tag a few friends to play along.” And be sure to tag @rukristin if you play along!
I have been lazy and distracted about documenting in 2014. I have photos from back in January 2014 that I haven’t even looked at, let alone edited. I didn’t do anything for Project Life. I successfully finished a small Week in the Life album, but probably only because I bought the kit (let’s be honest) …
And yet, in spite of all this, every Thursday Kristin or another of my friends would tag me for #Thursday3 and I would be reminded to take a selfie and jot down a couple quick notes.
I literally forgot every single Thursday until someone tagged me. I forget to tag other people. I *almost* forget to use the hashtag #thursday3.
And that’s one of the many reasons I love social media. Friends, and gentle accountability and creative challenges. Miraculous. Because of this weekly project I have a small collection of documented stories from throughout the year that I definitely would not have had without the challenge.
I post these on Instagram (on Thursdays, surprise surprise) if you’d like to follow me there! Here are a few …
And — you know what? — today is Thursday as well!
This image just went up on Instagram, but here it is too …
- I have had these socks since high school. True story. At least … 15 years. I have no idea how they have lasted so long without being lost or destroyed.
- I want to take 10,000 steps each day this year. Part of my #olw #practice2015. My pedometer counts jumps on my trampoline, so I don’t have to leave the house (hopefully)
- As of right now I still have a couple posts to write for my blog party (to be published tonight), but once I’m done I’m going to read Harry Potter and eat enchiladas the rest of the day.
