It’s now been 100 days since I set sail on my life journey. There have been ups, there have been downs but I think I’ve made some good progress. Today sort of turned into a rest day and I enjoyed it.
I’ve been feeling a little fatigued and decided against working out. That kind of hurt. On a milestone type day, I give up the one thing I have been the most committed to. I’ll get back to it tomorrow and do the extra workout on the weekend.
I spent the better part of the day playing with some friends in WoW. I guess any day that I’m exercising my social muscle, I can be happy with myself.
The afternoon was spent doing a little house work, drawing, knitting and my French practice.
Today’s drawing challenge topic; nature. After scrolling through pages of photos of waterfalls and thick forest, I knew I had to find something more simple and something I could do in lead pencil only. Until I get better paper and pencils, it’s all I can do.
I chose a ‘shadow’ photo of trees on the horizon. My reference photo can be found here.
A quick recap of the last 100 days.

I am proud of myself for starting and I’m proud of myself for working on all the things I have. I am making a commitment to myself to keep putting in the same, if not more, amount of effort so I can live the life that I deserve.
Day 20: How important do you think education is?
I think education if very important. Being educated gives you opportunities to thrive and succeed. It gives you hope. I regret leaving school at the end of year 10. I think my life would be very different if I had of been able to finish school and go to University.
I would like to thank all those who follow, like and comment. It’s very encouraging to know that I’m not alone on the journey. You’re the best and your smile sparkles like a diamond.
Here’s to another 100 days. Let the countdown begin.
