Film: February/March 2017

Finally I've developed a film. The photos are okay but it seems that the Bulb setting was on throughout most of the roll. I've been struggling really to finish films off and its annoying but I guess thats because its Winter and not a lot has been happening. Or I should just accept that my life is a lot less interesting and requires a lot less photo taking (which is slightly depressing). I'm still wishing I was more creative with my image taking and made more of the opportunities I do get to take pictures. 
The camera lab I get my images developed suggested I could try out some of the cameras they have for sale to see if I liked the quality of them (and maybe buy them). It's tempting and I'll probably take them up on the offer but that leaves me with the question of What about my Diana Mini. That poor blessed thing and the giant book that is forever never finished. I'm starting to doubt my ability to ever fill it completely. It would involve at least another 3 years of dedicated photo taking. Lets hope life gets a little bit more capture worthy. Haha I'll looking at this grimly. I always have lots to look forward to.
 Next week the girls are getting together for an evening out on the town. Although plans are not finalized. I'll promise to take plenty of pictures however. Maybe I need to start experimenting my Diana Mini again, try didn't shots, different lighting. I think I need to remember I don't only have to capture peoples faces. Also another thing thats getting on my nerves is the fact that it seems now more than ever before people can't figure out how to use the little camera! I'll hand it to a stranger (in order to get a picture with myself in) and explain what part to press down and they just don't get it. Like at all! And I'm so miffed by it because I used to just hand the camera to people of the same inexperience and wouldn't have to explain a thing. So that slightly knocks my confidence because I feel like its such hassle asking people to take photos. 

I've just realised I haven't written since before my birthday. I had a lovely time celebrating and some really lovely presents. Being 22 doesn't feel any different although I'm quite glad I'm not 21 anymore. I'll try write again soon and hopefully have another film to post in not too long of a time. Everyones so busy at the moment with deadlines and work and lives of their own. It's exciting, but I can't wait for Summer and hopefully a bit more free time to enjoy.

Finally getting round to putting together my Winter instagram pics and I'm happy to say today feels wonderfully Spring like. I've been for a walk round Bute Park in the morning and was absolutely overjoyed by the amount of daffodils and primroses that had already bloomed. I even spotted a single blossomed tree and ended up walking home with my coat off because I was so hot! Good signs everywhere. Today has been a simple day off, I've got a few little things done and finished off my 2nd English Assignment which is due tomorrow. I think I'm going to enjoy the remaining sun now and bask on my sofa as I flick through a magazine. All roads lead to this weekend, a birthday trip away to Maidstone, Kent. With dancing all day Saturday (are you surprised) and a little explore around the town before back to Cardiff for my actual birthday. 
I should hopefully have more blog posts coming your way this month, as I'm ever more keen to snap up moments. Can you believe I haven't completed a Diana Mini film since December!! I'm heartbroken, this cannot continue!

Plants and Other Things

So I'm blogging again, and I actually feel so great about it.
This morning me and Tom woke up so early! It must of been because it's beginning to get light now before 7am, which I absolutely love, but we are going to have to do something to keep the light out better in the bedroom. At 6.30am we looked at each other and asked is that really the time?! We stayed in bed a bit longer until I finally saw the sun hit the rooftops opposite our apartment. That was it, I was up and out of bed and straight to our camera. And so the morning went with me skirting around the apartment, taking photos of whatever caught my eye as the sun crept across our living room. 
Now I'm sat here ready to begin my days tasks and I thought, I might as well make the most of this light while it lasts and sit in it as I write a blog post (perfection). So here are a few of the pictures I took this morning.

Enjoy and I'll write again soon!

What I Did In February

Todays actually been a great day and I have decided to make it even better by writing this before I have to go off to work. I spent all morning cleaning, which might seem like a horrendous task to some, but I actually find it rather calming and therapeutic (and actually quite a work out at time!). Then I made some rather tasty and filling lunch and decided it was time to begin on my second assessment of my English course. My first essay. Well I say that but its only 600 words, so maybe not that daunting for some. I feel like I find essays quite a challenge though and I'm trying so hard to get better at them and not just give up like I did years ago in college. Reading this you may think, really? You write so much all the time on here. But this is very very different. It's easy to write what pops into your mind instantly, but when you're trying to explain something in something longer than just a definition, then I find it tricky. But today I managed to get round it and I think it's okay! Well I've only done the introduction so far but I am so happy with it to be honest because it makes sense and I didn't struggle to find the words to use. Now I just need to do some more research and then I'll be ready to finish it! So that's left me in a good mood today and so I decided to slip in this blog post before I dash off to work in about ten minutes time!!

I'll try write again soon!
