After a quiet mini break to the beautiful land of Fin where the summer sun never sets, it’s back to the challenges for me. Just returned from a run, so on track still for the October challenge, and invigorated shall share with you the news of another completed challenge. Turns out the mini break was actually necessary to complete it, so look how that worked out. Ready? The latest challenge completed is….
The photo album! Finally! I mentioned the photo album ages ago and I never got around to it (sounds familiar? Yes, that’s life.) Then two weeks ago, I got an email through the spambox, excuse me “gray mail”, that actually offered me a deal to CTRL-C CTRL-V (or cmd-C, cmd -V for the Mac users) a photo album together. It offered a discount, I bought the credit and I just had to use it on an album before the 19th of June. Pics were collected, and yes if you tagged me in it or put it out there on the web I might have nabbed it for posterity. Sorry – but more importantly: adjust your privacy settings. And that really is only a half joke. * more on this to come.
The album contains pictures of family (a whole section on my best girls, who will be joined by a best boy in autumn), friends in all sorts shapes and sizes ( The fab four, the Exmouth Seven, New York, Liessel Legendary and erhm, B and Sura.) Oh and section with my very cool sister of course.
* here we go: One thing I have learned from my own picture gathering antics, is the power of the almighty accessible interweb… The internet is great to keep connected with all my friends/family across the world: it’s much easier to stay in touch and meet people years after you last saw them and not feel like complete strangers. Still, we need to be aware who can see what: if you use social media, especially FB, double check the settings on your albums. It all got reset when Timeline came in. I might have clicked on a picture that your friend took of you and me and could click through to the rest of her albums too. Check your settings now: you can adjust it per album. Click on the arrow on the bottom right hand corner for a dropdown.
This is an open blog and even though this challenge indirectly included those I care about, at no point should it be a bother to them. So here the hopefully non offending front page as proof of album, and once it actually comes in, I will place a pic as well.
Next challenge is coming up next week: spend time shadowing a teaching-assistant in a special needs school!
Report to follow y’all, thanks for reading.
