– progress of month no. 9 –
I don’t know if it’s because I had holidays at the beginning of May and therefore more time, or if it’s simply a coincidence, but I did quite a lot of the things from my list of goals for the Day Zero Project. Here we go!
40. Make iron on patches from scratch
Let’s start with a very cool one: I made an iron on patch! Kind of at least, because I glued it on the jean jacket with fabric glue, but it does look like an iron on patch. My first try at embroidery, making a little Lumpur for my jacket.
28. Add three songs to the 3/month-playlist every month [9/33]
Like every month, I added three songs to my playlist. You can listen to them in the player above while continuing reading, if you want 🙂
65. Meditate every day for a week
I’ve tried meditating before, but I’ve never been able to get into it and I think it’s partly because I only tried once and would give up after. For a week, I meditated every day, using different guided meditations I found on YouTube. This was great, because it gives me something to focus on and makes it more easy to not get lost in thoughts.
32. Watch five interesting TED-talks [1/5]
I watched a TED-talk on increasing your self-awareness with one simple fix. I don’t remember exactly what I was looking for, but I got to this talk – which was unrelated to the mysterious thing I was looking for – and listened to it. I find topics related to psychology and human behaviour in general very interesting and I’ll listen to more of these talks.
39. Make drawings or paintings [4/10]
Painting number four! I already shared it in a separate post, where I also show you the original on which the painting is based. I was quite proud at my first attempt with acrylics.
43. Share parts of my journal on the blog [7/15]
Yet another post on a journal entry, this time my setup for the month of June.
74. Explore the area where I live [1/3]
82. Go for a long walk in the forest in spring and autumn [1/2]
I’ll take these two together, because I went for a long walk in the forest around the area where I live. My boyfriend and I took the bikes and cycled to the forest, where we walked for a while, and then we continued to a nearby lake.
27. Read books for fun [5/25]
I finished reading Topics of Conversation by Miranda Popkey – at first I had to get used to her style of writing a lot, but after one and a half chapter I liked it more. Some chapters were nice, others I liked less, depending on the topic of conversation of that particular chapter.
48. Write a (short) story
I’ll be short about this: I practiced writing stories and I wrote two short ones, but I won’t share them.
