Because I'm crazy.
And because going back to school and starting a whole new adventure, volunteering again to ML NaNoWriMo (www.nanowrimo.org) just isn't enough....
Or maybe because it is enough, because it's so much, so special...
I've decided to document what promises to be an exciting, inspiring, and amazing year by participating in yet another project.
(Haha. Funny joke. Mostly it is because I'm crazy.)
Anyway, this project involves taking/posting a photo every day. I'll be posting it on Tumblr (http://nataliaproject365.tumblr.com/) so, if you're at all interested, check it out. In the event that a photo could use a little more explanation, I'll post a blog about it here, too.
Why today? I figured September 1 was as good a day to start as any. Also my friend Angela (http://catnipkitty365.tumblr.com/) is also starting her project today.
Oh, and before you go being all observant, yes, I took it on campus on the 30th. It's so not cheating! Shut up! I saw the same flock today! And also I read that it's all right to use a backlogged photo as long as it represents the day! Just this once. Please? I'm taking your non-comment to mean that you'll let it slide. So... thanks!
Anyway, as you may know, I'll be studying Writing and Producing for TV, which I'm pretty sure is the most awesome thing to study ever. I'm very excited. I'm so excited, I could afford to use a period after that last statement, because the exclamation mark would be redundant. That's excited. (Haha.)
Of course, I'm also super nervous. I feel a tad old and out of place with a college backdrop. I've been there, done that, got many t-shirts.
I took this photo in a rush, but the moment seemed frozen in time. It felt significant somehow. It made me remember my first campus and the Canada geese that called it home, too. Seeing them all there reminded me that the more things change, the more things stay the same. I forget who said that, but I'm pretty sure it's kind of true. It reminded me of past successes, people who are still my friends, and that sometimes home is just a different patch of grass.
So, here's my first Project 365 photo. One part hope, two parts reminder, and another part home.
(Also, I thought it was funny how they were divided into Team Seagull and Team Canada Goose on a sports field.)
