Some of you will remember I embarked on an Instagram project last year called 100 Days of Happiness where I took a photo a day for 100 days of something that made me happy (more here). This year I have decided to try something a little different. I enjoyed 100 Days of Happiness because it pushed me to look for at least one thing each day that lifted my mood. Mostly it wasn’t that challenging because I am generally a happy person but it definitely helped me to engage positively with the world around me. This time I am going introspective and want to spend 100 days capturing my moods, feelings and activities to get in touch with myself a bit more. Also I will be indulging my own vanity because I am essentially a pretty vain creature. Since my blog readers seemed to enjoy 100 Days of Happiness so much I now bring you 100 Days of Selfies in 10 day bursts.
I was grumpy on day 1 because my hair would not cooperate and my fringe (bangs) had gone wrong. I love my fringe but it is hard work and unpredictable
A much better hair and weather day… well in the morning anyway
Last week was my last week in my old job and it ended up being one of the most stressful weeks in my eleven years of working in email marketing. This is my tense face at work.
On Thursday I went out with my friend, Neil for his birthday which was great. Standing around for ages in the rain waiting for the bus to go and meet him in Farringdon was less great
Ready for my last day in my old job made me feel happy/sad. Happy because I am ready for a new challenge but sad because I love the team I have been working with for so long
On Saturday morning I went to the gym but I had to really talk myself into getting out of bed to make my 9.15am class
This last weekend was a bank holiday weekend in the UK which means that Monday was a holiday. Mr O was working all weekend so I didn’t do very much… except dye my hair and get my nails sis so this was me trying to prove that I had a productive weekend
Sometimes I have like 6 cups of rooibos tea a day… okay most days I have about 6 cups of rooibos tea. Mmm… tea…
Yesterday was my first official day as a Product Owner. Same company but a complete career change. I survived!
Today I realised I haven’t smiled in any of my photos, which seems silly because I am a very smiley person
