I am done with my undergraduate. Can’t really believe it, but apparently it’s true. I’ve been seriously chilling and procrastinating when it comes to looking for employment, but I am enjoying everything so much!
I have tonnes planned for the blog, can’t wait to get to it! For now, here are some pretty flowers.
My camera has gathered dust, and I haven’t posted in 24 days. Tis the exam month. I will be back properly after the 31st of may, with some proper content, promise. For now, here’s a picture that’s currently the lock screen(?) of my laptop, and has yet failed to help me breathe and get some perspective.
(It was meant to go in a different post with more pictures, so maybe it will make a second appearance)
I’ve found it very easy to get caught up in the stress of my exams in May, but my final year has honestly been a good one. A more chilled one. The pressure is less, and I have had a lot of fun, a lot of days sleeping in, reading books in bed, watching movies, going out. There have been a lot, a real lot of super chill, happy days and today is one of them.
I finished the netflix series The Crown (definitely recommend) and am just lazing around (probably should finish some reading). But it’s been an overwhelming good day, in a really great last year of uni. The picture has very little to with what I’m talking about, just the colours – the reddish-brown of the road, against the blue water – and it’s a super chill picture, no stress at all.
Continuing the colour- emotion thing, pretending I have a theme going, here are some wonderfully blue landscapes. Blue mountains, Blue skies reflected in Blue water – soak it up, while I sit at my desk and pretend I’m there, cold wind on my face, legs aching after the walk, camera in my hand – in Kandy, at Horton Plains, at Lake Gregory.
Currently so overwhelmed and anxious, I’m just breathing in the picture, and feeling at least a little better. Escapism is a definite perk of photography.
Organizing and categorizing my pictures from 2015 and 2016 is honestly a life saver now. It’s stress-free, but it involves focus – so switching from editing a picture to reading a journal article isn’t too difficult a transition. Here’s a filler picture – I’ve got a post scheduled for Monday, so this is just a post to keep me going honestly.
Just a picture of fluffy clouds, a rainbow and a crane. I took this ages ago, and actually posted it on an older blog, so it feels kind of stand-alone – which is strange for me – I usually like my pictures in series.
I obviously haven’t posted in a while, and that’s because I had a bit of a block. I wanted to post a series of red-themes pictures – I sorted them out, made some edits and it was all ready, but it seemed inadequate somehow, and like I was posting just to post, so that post never materialized. While those pictures languished in a folder of my google drive, gathering electronic dust I have had a few shitty weeks, where I saw red (read: polite term for lost my shit on numerous occasions) mainly because I have lost focus in general. My finals are coming up and I am honestly not doing enough work, which is stressing me out on occasion – the rest of the time I’m sleeping/scrolling through insta/wasting time in general. If I’m being perfectly honest, this post is me procrastinating.
Anyway, one good thing came out of this, and that is that now my red-themed pictures have a theme or a reason – they will not move onto the blogosphere without some semblance of relevance! Hurrah for pictures with purpose! (no, not more purpose than I have in my life – I know you were thinking that. I have tea in my life, and if that isn’t purpose, I don’t know what is :P)
Looking at the pictures now, I feel like they have very little relevance to this post. But I like them, so too bad.
