If you've ever clicked on my 'website' link in my menu bar, you may have seen the project I completed in 2012. Each day I took one second of video (I took more than that and cut it down, actually) and at the end of the year I put them all together to create 365 seconds of video, one second for each day of my past year. If you haven't seen it, here it is - it ended up being longer than intended, but that is quite alright by me!
Let me point out a few clips that you might be puzzled by....
February 21 - that is a sheep brain, not a human brain!
April 29 - That is not a real gun. We had a 'most wanted' themed party, and my room-mate was giving a table-top speech (she does that).
May 28 - I had my cat lion-shaved. She hated it.
May 29 - I discovered film photography for the first time.
July 12 - that ones exactly what it looks like. A dog riding a horse. That dog has now sadly passed away :(
Aug 24 - I flew to Vancouver for a few weeks, and it was amazing.
Aug 26 - Bungee jumping
Sep 4 - first day of classes as a real nursing student!
Sep 28 - The axle broke on my car and the wheel did this. Thankfully we were in a parking lot when it happened.
Oct 10 - my horse bit me in the face on thanksgiving. I don't know either, but it hurt.
Nov 8 - a moustache party. I'm charlie Chaplin, not hitler (I promise).
Dec 30 - I came down with the flu for new years eve, and, because my boyfriend's birthday is Dec 31, his birthday.
Jan 8 - My friend from Australia visited and we put him in figure skates. Sorry, Haydn!
This project seemed huge to me at the beginning. I started it after seeing "what Madeline did" (she's since deleted it, I think!) on a whim, not even on the first of January, and I didn't really expect to finish it. Yet as the year wore on, I was still pulling out my iPhone and capturing little moments in my days. It became a bit of a thing in my circle of friends - people would ask if they could be in it, and I captured a ton of amazing memories. I now watch it back fondly, and I was so, SO proud of myself for finishing it. I took a year off in 2013, but I've decided I'd like to do it again in 2014. If anyone would like to take this on and has any questions, please feel free to ask me in the comments.
I know New years is a few days away, but I wanted to post this a bit before new years in case I could inspire any of you to take on a similar project. I highly recommend it! :)
