I have been so uninspired to blog that I have forgotten to publish a gratitude list. I’ve been stuck in a rut for weeks now, and I’m struggling to find good content for both my blog and Instagram — I even lost the inspiration to create a digital collage. So I guess, blog-wise, June wasn’t a good month. But I still had a lot to be thankful for, and I made sure that I’m still going to be able to write about those despite being two weeks late. 😛
Filters give photos a little more feel to it. For me, it sets the right mood — warmer filters for summer, and cooler ones for rainy days or winter; saturated ones for colorful places, and less saturated edits for a minimalist feel. I’ve always been one to play around with filters. This year alone, I had already tried out and used three “themes” for my Instagram account, and am already thinking of changing it again.
So I finally ventured out to vlogging. Last week, I tried to document my commute while I ran errands for med school and checked out thrift stores. I’m pretty pleased with the outcome but I’m sure I still have a whole lot to improve on. For starters, I still have to download a decent video editing software on my laptop. My internet had been so slow the night I was supposed to edit the clips so I just resorted to editing it on my phone using iMovies.
Just like the past month, April flew by fast. I didn’t realize that May is just around the corner until I looked at my calendar to check how long it has been since I last had my braces adjusted. I have big things to be thankful for this month. I don’t know what I did to receive everything on this gratitude list but I promise to make good use of them.
I really think the universe is trying its best to make it up for me because this month has been better than the last. This month was so eventful that it just flew by! I didn’t realize that it was already about to end that I almost forgot to write this entry!
Last year, I blogged about being torn regarding which camera to buy. Not only am I taking blogging much more seriously now, but I’m also in that phase where I want to preserve each memory beautifully and print out my best travel pictures. With that said, I need a camera that does the job perfectly for me without breaking the bank. As a student still depending on her parents for pretty much everything, I always have to be conscious about the quality of every huge purchase that I’m going to make. I finally narrowed my four choices down to one.
