This month is my last in Toronto, It’s also American Thanksgiving weekend so in my continued tradition of mixing up the two entirely different parts of The Americas here are the things I’m thankful to Toronto for.
This post started June 8th 2016 and is going to be constantly updated, mainly for me but also for others. Everyone needs things to be happy about here are mine, some of them might be yours too.
Here are twenty eight things. I used to write this with lessons I’d learned but it slowly morphed into just a list of realisations and aspirations over the year.
As I write this I am laying on the floor in the middle of the empty living room, all our large items like the sofa having been put into long term storage.
First of all, I cannot believe I am 27. I am at the edge of a big life decision. It’s going to be nice to look back on this in the years to come and see what I was thinking. I do these posts yearly so for this year, here are 27 things I have learnt in 27 years (most are things I need to improve on).
I met Paul Mayne the man behind Day One on a Wednesday during one of the best weeks of my life last year in California. The meeting was almost fateful timing as that Monday I had decided that an event like visiting [redacted] in my life needed journaling.
I will first state that I have always found drawing difficult. The one thing I love about design is trying several possible combinations and layouts then gradually iterating to the best possible combination of them. The one thing about pencil and paper is how limited you are by how many times you can erase a line.
This is a pretty incomplete and evolving document about my aspirations. You can learn alot from people’s bucket lists.
Cast of Back to the Future 30 years later at London Film and Comic Con. It’s supposed to be Summer in England, that should mean less rain but instead it is seemingly meaning more rain.
There are many ways to quantify life along with many reasons. My happiness and motivation pushes me through tough spots by remembering I have more good times than bad.
Usually the night before a birthday I find myself writing one of these lists of things that recap my year. Last year I made it public for the first time, its interesting to see my priorities and problems year to year. This is mostly for me but a bit for you too.
Currently I’m in T’rono (Toronto) and it’s beautiful weather, not life-endingly hot or cold as Toronto usually is.
My New Years resolution this year is a series of goals spanning travel, health, photography and work life.
Juggling is fun, you pick up lots of shiny clubs and keep them up in the air. Each club thrown brings new challenges and is different from the next.
I love Espresso I liked it when it was CSSEdit too. The project manager, the live preview, the style list is all really nice but the themes available are really lacking.
Today, I’m twenty-five a quarter of a century old. The death calculator says I’ll live until 85.13 that means I have roughly 71.13% of my life left. Thats a fair bit.
