On the 12th of the month (for many many months), I try to take 12 pictures of my day and blog them. [Sometimes I forget to blog them.]

Here are my pictures for February 12, 2016.

https://i1.wp.com/farm2.staticflickr.com/1518/25113533256_29769b3387.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

7:08 am – bedroom. Messy morning hair. Feeling like it’s an Addison Road t-shirt day.

9:05 am – Starbucks. I really wanted an Earl Grey tea latte, which I had not desired in months/years, but Starbucks was out of Earl Grey. (I know… What?) This “Royal English Breakfast” tea latte is NOT the same. I went for brunch with Mindy after, and fortunately Stella’s could make me a London Fog.

12:01 pm – Annex. Purrza… Persia?

https://i1.wp.com/farm2.staticflickr.com/1497/25113551606_b61289f1a2.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

12:01 pm – Annex. Yes. Unicorn kitty (not Unikitty), eating pizza. Garbonzo’s, you never fail me.

5:42 pm – kitchen. Quantified self-ing to get my priorities in-order. Optimized.

https://i0.wp.com/farm2.staticflickr.com/1549/25113549046_6a63e904da.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

7:30 pm – kitchen. Looking up recipes. [If you glance to that sugar-free tag in the URL, well, I’m still into sugar and not into fake-sugar. I do own Stevia however. And agave that I’ve never used.]

https://i1.wp.com/farm2.staticflickr.com/1468/25113538976_0d26aca090.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

8:42 pm – kitchen. Sometimes I try to draw stuff. This day, I tried to over-ambitiously draw a representation of the Farewell Fighter song I’ll Be Max, You Be The Monster. My drawing skills are lacking so it is far less rad than I wanted it to be.

https://i1.wp.com/farm2.staticflickr.com/1690/24772185429_1c7ba97de0.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

9:03 pm – kitchen. I drew an octopus, but got bored prior to colouring it.

https://i0.wp.com/farm2.staticflickr.com/1684/25021630212_2cba614c61.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

10:09 pm – kitchen. Here’s my computer background, the Manitoba Goalball logo I designed… yeah, all that non-tactile Braille and all. Still not sure my feelings on the pink with it, but too lazy to change it.

https://i2.wp.com/farm2.staticflickr.com/1591/25046618661_f85d0f3a07.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

10:39 pm – kitchen. Yeah, if you were wondering about that sugar free tag? I just made eggless single serve cookie dough. Because that’s reasonable. 

https://i1.wp.com/farm2.staticflickr.com/1601/24509208384_083176fbf0.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

11:40 pm – kitchen. I’ve got a minion living under my cereal dispenser. 

https://i1.wp.com/farm2.staticflickr.com/1597/24844232860_e7f4a0a9a6.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

11:55 pm – bathroom. I friggen love my Oral-B Bluetooth toothbrush. My mom however does not love that it creates a light show in the bathroom as it charges, so I have to cover the blinky lights with a cloth.

On the 12th of each month, I take 12 pictures throughout the day and then blog them. Here are my photos for December 12, 2015.

https://i1.wp.com/farm1.staticflickr.com/757/23392808769_ffb714138d.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

12:21 am – bathroom. I regularly empty my pockets while taking my bedtime inhalers.

https://i2.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5794/23132582694_e5cef89c99.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

9:26 am – bedroom. Good morning, Movie Mike! He and my earphones slid under the bed overnight, despite that the cupcake tries to protect him.

https://i0.wp.com/farm1.staticflickr.com/699/23132583444_9eab624e62.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

10:50 am – bus. I unintentionally collect these things. I’m going to make a collage one day, I think.

https://i1.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5811/23678345631_3c99466b80.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

1:45 pm – Amber and Darren’s. Happy first birthday, Bria! 

https://i2.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5714/23734625266_2f8cc91f28.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

3:50 pm – bus. Riki borrowed this skateboard like, two years ago (it’s a long story). Now I’m taking it on buses in December. (Also a long story.)

https://i0.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5678/23392805929_22ccb4915d.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

5:09 pm – bus. Yes, I did say I was taking the skateboard, covered in duct tape, on buses, plural.

https://i1.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5769/23133925563_72cf8bc6f5.jpg?resize=281%2C500&ssl=1

6:29 pm – kitchen. Arise by Chevelle always makes me think of my friend Darren, so I took a screenshot and sent it to him. You can check out his bass cover here (filmed by yours truly :].)

https://i1.wp.com/farm1.staticflickr.com/639/23132577444_a44bbd7b64.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

6:59 pm – dining room. Decorated my little Christmas tree, complete with cupcakes and airplanes. I want an airplane tree topper, really, though this penguin will suffice.

https://i0.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5670/23465046200_7aca52143b.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

10:32 pm – bathroom. After nearly 10 years of needing to be fragrance-free, I finally found unscented bubbles. I’m kind of obsessed with them, but they are hard to find—my best friend found these ones for me :).

https://i2.wp.com/farm1.staticflickr.com/588/23734629006_463a171be5.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

11:29 pm – kitchen. Not sure why there is a pumpkin in my kitchen. And mostly why it has not been made into pie yet.

https://i1.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5796/23132582584_b57636954b.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

11:30 pm – kitchen. My current netflix obsession – Life Unexpected. [Which I finished on the 13th and am very unsure about the ending.

https://i0.wp.com/farm1.staticflickr.com/720/23133929873_4e18e0a58b.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

11:31 pm – kitchen. And, when Netflix breaks… “Whoops, something went wrong…” They got nothing on Google Chrome’s “Oh snap!” error page…

I’m only a week late—here’s my 12 of 12 from November 12th, 2015!

IMG_4616.JPG


12:37 am – kitchen. Hello, reminder. Hello, November 12th. [I often ignore these alerts for HOURS…]

IMG_4617.JPG


10:29 am – bedroom. It’s getting to be that time of year… Mittens.

IMG_4619.JPG


11:23 am – bus. My buddy, Murray, Steve’s guide dog. Hard at work!

IMG_4620.JPG



12:11 pm – bronuts.
 Boston creme, aka Edgar? Yes, please!

IMG_4621.JPG


12:20 pm – bronuts. One of the bros brought Murray water :].

IMG_4622.JPG


12:28 pm – King Street. For my friend Riki: yes, Bronuts is wheelchair accessible!

1:20 pm – mts centre. The boys (aka Steve and Gerry) and I went to Starbucks and it was very full, so we took our drinks and sat at the far end of the Tim Hortons in MTS Centre.

3:30 pm – graham at donald. Waiting for my bus to go to work. This post with a graffiti-ed name tag was interesting to me.

IMG_4626.JPG


6:20 pm – respite. You mean you don’t make paper french fries at work?

IMG_4627.JPG


6:30 pm – respite. Apparently the five year old didn’t like some of my shading that got a bit out of control, so I made it better by making the offending french fry have ketchup on it. [I mean, also, when the little one found a freezie and we couldn’t find a second for the 5 year old, I convinced him that frozen bananas were the greatest thing ever… and won him over.]

IMG_4629.JPG


8:50 pm – kitchen. Went shopping on the way home. I’m doing NaNoJouMo (national nonstop [art] journal month], so, I have to give my inner [non-]artist some new tools.

IMG_4632.JPG


10:49 pm – kitchen. My first oil pastel creation in years. I think I had better pastels as a kid, actually…

I have one post sitting here that I failed to hit publish on, and another that is in progress. So instead, we get a 12 of 12. [This is blogging, ADHD style!]

https://i2.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5791/22138618522_2d7974206a.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

8:58 am. Crashed at my aunt’s this Thanksgiving (like usual). My cousin Dean is away at school, so I take his room. It is very dark. I like.

https://i2.wp.com/farm1.staticflickr.com/638/22125338736_99c29943b6.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

12:16 pm. Lunch. I don’t really get where they see there is “more icing” in the more icing packets for toaster strudels.

https://i1.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5680/21529873983_501cd2ea0a.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

3:28 pm. Everybody goes for a car ride with a remote, right? This is what I was in charge of when my aunt was transporting a TV to my grandma’s. (Clearly nobody trusts me to not drop an oldschool TV?)

https://i0.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5819/22138357572_148e05245e.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

6:24 pm. My dad used the end of the whipped cream. I scraped the liquidy stuff off my pie and I was sad for a bit.

https://i2.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5710/22161161801_bbbb38dfe8.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

6:35 pm. So I did the dishes because I was no longer in any hurry to eat pumpkin pie. And then looked in the freezer for more whipped cream. And I found ice cream! Problem solved.

https://i2.wp.com/farm1.staticflickr.com/769/22161176271_2e6b00f65f.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

6:47 pm. Realized advance polls were open on Thanksgiving Day. What kind of shenanigans are those?!

https://i1.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5836/21964065939_f82b5f4d87.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

7:02 pm. So then, I mean, I went to vote. I also convinced my mom to go vote. See also: curious placement of the voting sign above the AED and below the AED sign?

https://i2.wp.com/farm1.staticflickr.com/661/22150946505_4d88388502.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

7:06 pm. Obligatory voting selfie, excited edition. You know how much time it takes to vote on Thanksgiving Day? About three minutes. There was one person ahead of me. Thankful for democracy.

https://i0.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5776/21528161994_01a44af179.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

7:07 pm. Classy voting dumpster? By the way, we left home, voted, and returned home in thirteen minutes.

https://i1.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5648/22124784446_2052b10bbd.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

7:37 pm. Of course upon returning home, I was almost immediately greeted by a political Facebook ad. Let’s just say I didn’t vote for either of these guys, and I didn’t know I even had a Green candidate in the area.

https://i0.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5793/22150982695_f1b73cd96e.jpg?resize=500%2C375&ssl=1

9:14 pm. Why does TripIt even try to tell me the weather for six months from now?

https://i1.wp.com/farm1.staticflickr.com/570/21964091189_54ff1dc185.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

10:12 pm. Then I got an e-mail from the library that I could check out Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison electronically. So obviously after that happened I did nothing but read until 2 am.

It used to be that on the 12th of the month, a bunch of bloggers would snap 12 pictures of their day and blog them. I kept up a good pace for awhile, but after the momentum died down, I fell off track. Yesterday, my friend Mike tweeted at me saying he was making a 12 of 12 attempt (here are his pictures!).

These are my pictures from September 12th, 2015.

7:12 pm – veranda | My Pebble has been having issues. I think it’s done this update 20 times. I was connecting, yet again, to finally send a report to Pebble Support.

11:52 pm – bedroom. |  Not sure how I accumulated two Ventolins on the shelf by my bed. Toothbrush time.

https://i1.wp.com/farm6.staticflickr.com/5777/21403318101_7fed507689.jpg?resize=375%2C500&ssl=1

12:21 am – bedroom | Somehow a dolphin from SeaWorld and a hula hoop call my cabin bedroom home?

12:31 am – bedroom | Pretending to sleep before actually sleeping.
