May 23, 2016


Although my brain keeps wanting to focus on getting the apartment super settled and perfect, I have also felt the pull to get back to some regular habits. I know, I know... I watch a lot of TV at any given time, but the magic here was pairing watching stuff with getting back to physio. In just a week I've gotten back into the habit of physio in the morning *and* I finished Season 1 of The Shannara Chronicles. And now that I've established the habit, I can just pick another show to watch as I stretch, strength, balance all that good stuff. Total win-win! And I really enjoyed the show. It was nice to have something lighter to enjoy.


If I didn't think I was a perfectionist before, I do now! I made about 10 different versions of the thumbnail for my photo studio unboxing video. I am trying to bring in a little superhero-theme and start the transition but without going overboard, since the video itself doesn't feel that way yet. I figured out how to setup with studio and now have to figure out how to use it. It already feels weird to think of doing foodie photos not in the kitchen but I have to realize I am a creature of habit. It's not a bad thing, it is just a different thing.

Funny, I wrote about habits too Shannon! Glad you enjoyed Shanara, we loved it too. Hope you find a replacement for it that makes you happy and keeps inspiring you while doing physio!

Late add from me...

YAY for unboxing videos! I love the thumbnail Suzie, it was totally worth your perfectionist efforts and totally has the superhero vibe. It's amazing how we can get into habit-mode, here's to finding out what works for how you want to work your photos & vids!

I'm so glad you enjoyed Shannara too! I am happy they renewed it. I'm not on to catching up with Beauty & The Beast as I never finished last season and it comes back pretty soon. Feels nice to get some fun shows in while physio-ing.
