Why do I do this to myself

The 100 day project. More like the 100 guilt trips project. I Know that as soon as I commit to doing something every day it sucks the joy right out of it. Then of course I announce to the world I am doing the thing and boom every time I Don’t do it I _KNOW_ I’m being judged as a failure. Blah! I know what works best for me is to just do a thing without talking about it or sharing my plans. I know me well enough to understand that’s how my process works. I just get so excited[…]

I am an Atheist

Also this is 100 Day Project Day 9 I’ve avoiding writing about this particular topic for awhile.

100 Day Project Day 1

Its kind of embarrassing to remember only after I’ve started a project that my Instagram account doesn’t post to anything else the way I’ve set my blog up to do.  I’m learning all sorts of things.  Mostly that I know nothing about photography and that I’m pretty bad at it. Here are some of the pictures I managed yesterday Here is what I ended up choosing as my picture of the day erin_furianFirst lesson for #the100dayprojectproject. Taking good pictures of my cat is hard. Here is a Dandelion that actually held still long enough for me to get a nonblurry picture. #erinfurian
