So me and my family went on a roadtrip at the end of June, basically two months ago, and yes, I now just found the time to edit my photos and post them. Enjoy!!
Hello beautiful people!!!
It actually feels like spring here in Estonia and what better way to get out and enjoy it than go to the zoo. I’ve been to the zoo here in Tallinn way too many times, but I still enjoy it like I’ve never been there. Plus the polarbear just got a new baby. WOO. I’m actually glad we used that good spring break weather, because as I’m writing this it’s dreary and sad outside.
Good things come to those who wait
Good things come to those who work their asses off and never give up
I felt like a failure, because of school.
Society and teachers have put this idea in my head that if I fail maths or science etc., then I will never achieve what I want. Because we’re meant to go to school to get somewhere in the future and since they don’t give every talent an equal chance, I think I’ll fail in life. I want to be a photographer, so school should teach me photography, right. Do you understand what I mean? Someone put this idea in my head that if I fail maths, then I fail life. Basically.
I didn’t want to just sit and overthink. I took my camera and tripod (finally found it behind the couch, never bothered to look there, ups) and went out. The good thing is that I live on the countryside. I felt like a professional. And I felt alive (cringey? I know). But instead of failing I felt like succeeding. Instead of taking a step in the wrong direction, I’ll take my camera and take two steps to the right one.
||And yes, I did have a photoshoot by myself||
HAPPY NEW YEAR
I actually spent the beginning of my new year differently than usual. Well usually it’s with my family, but this time me and my sister went to our friends house. And we went to the Freedom Square, where there was a concert and we welcomed the new year there. I, being the photographer that I am, took my camera and I think I got pretty amazing photos.
How did you welcome the new year???
Wait what, I saw my mom holding a new 2017 calendar. Is 2016 really over in a few days?! Everything just whizzed by, did I accidentaly push a fast forward button? I can’t believe we are already saying goodbye to 2016. This year was crazy, don’t you think, many highlights and challenges. So I feel like writing a recap of my 2016 for this blog and myself. Many of you probably don’t even care, but despite that I am going to sit here for a couple of hours or days and write a cringey post as usual. And by sitting here a couple of hours I mean looking for photos to recap my year, so don’t worry, since this is more of a photography blog, I will do the recap mainly in photos.
I don’t really remember what I did at the beginning of this year.. I was probably studying. Because guess what, this year I graduated elementary school!! Whaat?! I am really satisfied with my exam results. The graduation day was nerve racking, don’t know why, but it was. It was also a really good day.
I obviously can’t forget the family trip. Last year me and my family went to Prague and it is just one of the prettiest cities I’ve been to. So this year we went on this big road trip, where we visited some Europien countries and cities and Prague was one of ’em. It was actually the last one we went to I think. But all in all the road trip was amazing, but some challenges were thrown in.
I also did some traveling around Estonia which is something I want to do next year as well. I might live here, but I haven’t explored it enough.
Also went to Finland two times. Had lots of sleepovers with my favourite people. And lets not forget I started my photography lessons at Art School, which by the way I really enjoy. I actually want to add some photos that we recently took there, but I feel like that can be a post itself. I had loads of little memories that in actual fact for me are big memories.
This year I feel like I discovered a little part of me. I mean I have been into traveling for a long time and I have been taking photos basically forever, but this year I really found out what I am passionate about. I found out that I want to travel, really really travel and I want to have my camera with me everywhere I go.
In 2017 I want to focus on me. I feel like a lot of people have said that, but I want to do that as well. At least I want to try. I want to focus on being happy. I ain’t going to go on a long rant about what I mean by that, but I am going to focus on what I want to do and what makes me happy.
How was your 2016?? HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND ENJOY THE FEW DAYS LEFT OF 2016 AND THEN ENJOY THE NEW YEAR!!!
Photography and lifestyle are the main themes I want to focus on. Obviously I will post something else for a change. I feel like this is going to be a very random post, but I promise once I’m better at this blog thing I’ll try harder, not that I’m not trying now.
This week has been good and bad. Started off good when my best friend Marianna announced on Thuesday that she is coming back to our school. I have no idea why she left in the first place. She did the paperwork and started school on Friday. It just made me the happiest person!!!!
It started snowing on Wednesday I think. And because of the snow, me, my dad and my two sisters were in a car accident. It was horrible. I had to walk home 2km alone. And our car is now broken. That’s probably the reason I haven’t been active on my blog.
But now my head is cleared of the accident and I’m ready to start bloging more regularly. So I went walking around the Old Town with my sister and I took my camera with us. I tried to capture the beauty of Tallinns Old Town in the snow and want to share it with you. I also feel like this is exactly like Marianna‘s post.. sorry m8.
I’d also like to tell you about my titles. Like today’s posts title is 05.11.16, but I posted it on the 6th not on the 5th. But I took the photos on the 5th. I don’t know why I do it, but I just do.
