Let the picture-heavy last-week-plus-two-days wrap-up of the September 2012 edition of 30 Days of Lists begin!
Day 22: "My Favorite Photos of Myself." This was probably my favorite of the whole month... I printed out pictures of myself I liked or that held a special place in my heart, mounted them on some cardboard, wrote little captions and titles on the back and tucked them away into an envelope in my book.
Day 23: "Current Favorites." This was the only one where I incorporated one of my wrecked Polaroid photos and decided to roll with the yellow color scheme of that strange block (the result of accidentally pulling out two exposures!). Most of my life was spent hating yellow and orange... the season for that has passed!
Day 24: "Yesterday Was..." Boy was I snotty this day. That head cold sure was a rough one... but I loved documenting my day in highlights and bullet points and little fragments and pieces.
Day 25: "Where I Have Lived." Remember that thing I said up there about skipping two days, and some of these lists being done while grossly sick and photographed poorly? When I wrote that, I was thinking of this list and the next list specifically. I really wanted this idea to work, and for the most part it did, except some parts it was poorly executed and I spelled one of my cities' names wrong. *facepalm*
Day 26: "Trends I Cannot Stand." I wish this were a list on pretty much any other day, because boy, can I get ranty and real about stupid trends. I feel like my distaste for stupid trends is not accurately portrayed in this list... but I hit on some big ones, which is good. If you ever say "sunnies" or "color story" around me I might hit you. Also I don't really care about your nails, and those shorts look stupid.
Day 27: "The Bravest Things I Have Ever Done." This is probably favorite #2, not due so much for design, but for the honesty. All of those things are true. And I would do any of them again in a heartbeat, because they have made me the person I am today. Except maybe I won't jump out of another airplane, once was kind of enough and I have way more things to live for now.
I seriously, seriously loved this project. It was completely unpretentious and unintimidating... if you have a pen and piece of paper, you can participate. I used it as an excuse to play around with paper, but it absolutely doesn't have to be done that way! You bet your butt I'm doing it again come Spring.
