Fall just arrived, but it feels like winter is already just around the corner. The chilly, crisp air is something I really love, but today's gloom seems to just bring me unjustifiable sadness. It's just so gloomy, which is odd - typically I feel comfort during this weather. Maybe I haven't had enough of summer just yet.
But hey, let's make the most out of it! Because the arrival of fall and winter means new opportunities to take photos. And also more time to craft because we won't be doing activities as much. So what things should I prepare for this season?
Fall & Winter Plans
Some ideas of things to do during the cold months up north!
Fall and winter photography
It may be redundant, but I think I'll never really get enough of these seasons. I can't really say it's still new to me, I've been here eight years, but that doesn't stop fascinating me. Every year is like a brand new experience. I guess it's no different than me going to the beach every year when I was still in the Philippines. You just can never get enough sun!
Early this year, I've planning and planning to photograph the ice shoves by drone. Of course, I didn't do that and failed my personal battles miserably. Why am I like this? Sorry, I can't even answer. So this year, or early next year I definitely should plan that on top of my winter photography ideas.
Painting! More Painting!
While the cold weather doesn't really stop us from going out, we have to admit that it drastically lessens the outdoor activities that we do (or can do). So I think I will also focus in improving my painting skills and perhaps start a painting project? Maybe something like... daily painting or weekly themes! I'm really bad in following through with plans, clearly, but never bad to even start lol. Challenging, just thinking about it.
Learn New Recipes
I love to cook, but I noticed that I usually make the same dishes over and over. As much as my Bear loves my cooking, I personally think it gets boring. I recently tried making Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes with Chicken, and I really liked it. I should expand the type of dishes I make, and perhaps make more Western style meals. We love watching James May's Oh Cook! He's not the perfect chef, but he does present some interesting dishes.
Have Better Financial Plans
While I work in banking and finance, I'm actually really terrible with finances for my personal life. Not something I'm proud of, but just like how I suck at organizing my brain, I'm terrible in planning my finances. I'm surprised how I'm able to advance in my career, it's like the rest of my existence is salad of events. So perhaps it's time to contemplate plans for the year to come!
Is this? Probably! This for now. Let's take baby steps, one little step at the time. The though overwhelms me, but I can't let that discourage me from even trying to follow a very simple Fall-Winter Plan. I'm hopeful that somehow, things will fall into place. With maximum effort.
Hey, it's me!
I've always loved to write. Not saying I'm good at it, but hey this is the story of my life!
