I jumped out of bed and got straight to French. I’m feeling much better about the travel words. I seem to take about 4 days for things to really get in my brain. Something I need to remember when I learn the next set of words so I don’t get so frustrated.
Inspired by getting to French so quickly, I decided to jump into all my other morning tasks quickly. I worked out, I showered and then I hit a wall. Everything after that seemed to drag along at a snails pace in an unproductive way. My morning enthusiasm waned into a zombie-like state.
I’ve spent all week taking ‘looking up’ photos of the sun for the Let’s do 52 – 52 Week Photography challenge. There have been pictures of the sun on its own, through cloud, through trees, centred and barely in the shot. There were a lot of shots I really liked but this one was my favourite. I love the contrast of dark and light with the little colourful light flares.
For today’s drawing challenge topic; some flowers. This was supposed to be a fun draw for me but it wasn’t. I had been looking forward to it and decided to work in colour. The pencils and paper did not want to work together. I could barely see the colours and the paper got pretty beat up. I haven’t felt creative enough to redo it, so, here it is. Better luck next time.
I did give the drawing a little enhance in GIMP so you could actually see the flowers. They just didn’t stand up on their own sadly. This has prompted a shopping trip for pencils and good paper.
The only other creative (and it’s not feeling very creative) was my 20 minutes of writing. I’m not technically writing, I’m editing and rewriting but it really needs to be done before I venture further into this tale.
Day 14: What is your earliest memory?
It was around 6.30 am and I thought… ‘Why am I awake at 6.30 am.’
For real though, I find this question difficult to answer because I don’t remember a lot from when I was young. I’ve also had short term memory problems since my mum passed away when I was 21, so I feel like I’m in a constant fog of confusion and uncertainty.
I find it hard to tell if it’s a memory of a situation I’ve been in, if it’s a memory of a photo or if it’s something I’ve completely made up.
Tomorrow is a rest day. My workout body is looking forward to it. My workout brain is not. I don’t want to say it but I think I enjoy working out. What a strange world I now live in.
