Grungy Textures

Here are some gritty city snaps from my latest business trip adventure. Spending about four hours on trains and buses to get somewhere and another four hours to get back is only bearable when I spend time snapping everything. Shot with my iPhone 8 and edited in Adobe Photoshop. Kidding. I don’t do Apples and

Developing Your Eye II: Nature Bits

Part of WordPress’s photography course Developing Your Eye II. The photo prompt for today is asking for a picture of nature. The extra task is to focus on strong leading lines. Nature photos are boring, so I took a snap of a bit of nature in the civilisation: my new heather plants. I tried to do

What I Hated the Least Today 214/365: Bloggers

We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and—in spite of True Romance magazines—we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. ― Hunter S. Thompson The first thing after I wake up is to look at my phone, with anxiety,

What I Hated the Least Today 202/365: Doctors

I have a health insurance card. That in itself isn’t particularly surprising, as where I live, health insurance is obligatory. My card is special though because I made it so – I had my academic titles added on it because I could. Where I live, academic titles are a decorative property – it won’t earn you a

What I Hated the Least Today 196/365: Stand

I can’t stand. No, seriously, I can’t stand properly. I suspect all of my body alignment is all messed up. I wouldn’t have noticed, had I not started to practise yoga. And then I wouldn’t have noticed, had I not occasionally made a video of my workout in order to check to what extent I’m

What I Hated the Least Today 173/365: Orange Is the New Black

A whole new series of Orange Is the New Black has been released a few days ago. Since I act like I had no work to do and since I like a challenge, I challenged myself to watch all the thirteen episodes in a single sitting. I failed, but it was a borderline fail: day one: was

What I Hated the Least Today 162/365: Old Lady’s Shoes

Remember the other day when I ordered new shoes online only to test that my renewed payment card works and it did? (Disclaimer: I would’ve ordered the shoes even if I didn’t want to test my card.) My order arrived in a matter of a few days, but it took me almost a week to

What I Hated the Least Today 134/365: Looking Good

I need to compliment myself since no one is going to do it for me: I’m looking okay. I’ve been trying to lose some weight, which has worked. To the obvious question how I did that, I have a very disappointing answer: I eat low-calorie food and obsessively practise yoga. It’s not really worth it, especially not
