May Recap

At the end of April I decided to do at the end of each month a monthly recap of the month. So today is the end of May. Wow I can’t believe it is the end of May already! The month went by so quickly. It was a beautiful month. May has always been one of my favorite months. I remember celebrating May Day in school when we lived in Europe when I was younger. I always took part and I loved it.

So I guess I am going to start with my May goals and then I will also talk a bit about other things that have happened during May. I want to make this a monthly thing that I do each month more for myself then for anyone else reading just so later I can look back and see the progress I am making as well as see what happened in certain months but I think it is also interesting as a feature post that shows what is going on in my life.

Peggy’s Cove

So I decided since yesterday was Saturday and since I was feeling miserable with a cold that it was time to get out, get some fresh air and let Edward drive somewhere new and ignore the fact I felt like crap. So he drove us to Peggy’s Cove just outside Halifax. It was a beautiful day to go since it was 20°C out. It wasn’t super busy. Lots of room for climbing on the rocks and taking photos.

First we found a path between the Swiss Air Flight 111 Memorial and Peggy’s Cove so that I could get some photos from further away and then we went into Peggy’s Cove to go walk on the rocks and take pictures. It was beautiful but windy which was perfect for some nice wave pictures as well. This has always been one of my favorite places to go for a walk or to take pictures READ MORE

Photoshop/Lightroom

I am so excited I purchased a year of the Photography plan for Photoshop & Lightroom. I have never used Lightroom before but love using Photoshop. I really want to get back into photography since I have a perfectly good camera sitting on a shelf at home doing nothing. A Cannon Rebel T5 DSLR. Which I bought 2 or 3 years ago now. I’m even still paying on it and it has been sitting in my closet. What a waste. Time to get some use out of it and maybe concentrate on something other then diabetes.

So to help with that I purchased an annual plan that includes Photoshop CC, Lightroom CC, Lightroom Classic CC and 20GB of cloud storage which I really don’t need but why not since it comes with it. I am so excited to play around with it and do some tutorials and such. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know! I used to spend hours playing around with Photoshop. READ MORE

Trapped under ice

Ever wonder what you are doing on the earth? Like, what your purpose in life is? I have been thinking about that a lot lately. I feel so much like something is missing. Like I am not living up to my full potential and that there is something more that I need to do.

I can’t help but wonder what it is. Does everyone think like this? Am I the only one? Sometimes I feel like I just have so many questions. I have been thinking a lot about people in my life that are no longer in my life. I don’t mean ex-boyfriends, ex-friends, or people I have known briefly. I mean my friends and family who have lived and died. READ MORE

What’s in a name?

I have to admit I am being lazy and writing up some of my blog posts ahead of time right now. So that I do not fall back into the rut of not posting for weeks, and this is one of them. C’est La Vie! So, what’s in a name? By this I mean A Story About A Girl or storyboutagirl.org. I feel like giving a bit of a back history about the domain name, my blogging and whatever else I can think of related to this.

If you have read my about section then you may already know that the name is based off of an Our Lady Peace (OLP) song called Story About A Girl off of their Gravity album. If you want to check out some of their songs you can check out their iTunes page. READ MORE
