Winnipeg Winniwedding Time Lapse

And here it is! 5,911 frames documenting delays, travel, reunions, and a wedding!

This was a really fantastic trip and it was great to see everyone back together again. It’s been a long time since we’ve all been in once place together and it can’t happen again soon enough.


Shave and a Haircut

Wedding season is upon us once again. To get ready, Will (the groom) and I went and got ourselves some fancy shaves. Naturally, my GoPro was running. Enjoy!

Shave and a Haircut

FOR ME!

Everything is better in gif format!

I seriously can’t get enough of this album


Annual Look Back, 2015 Edition

It’s new years again, and you know what that means? Annual blog update!

2015 was a whirlwind, I’m sure I did more things than I can remember. It’s often the case. That’s kind of the flaw of only writing once a year. But I think it’s also a testament to just how busy I’ve been this year, even if I wanted to write I don’t think I would have had much time to. 2015 was full of things, experiences, assignments, people,  and adventure. It certainly feels like I’ve had less time in a given day, but it also feels that during this past year I’ve gotten more done in any given day than I have ever before. If 2015 could be summed up by a single word, it would be “productive”.

Let’s break it down. 


The Bridge Is Out!

While playing GTA V this evening I discovered that Windows 10 can automatically keep the last 30 seconds of gameplay while playing any game. You know what that means? Shenanigans.


2015 Approaches; resolutions, reflections, revelations

2015 is quickly approaching, so it’s time for my semi-annual list of resolutions and/or stuff I’m going to work on improving in the next year. Let’s go.

  • Take a walk each day or at least seriously consider it
  • Don’t spend too much time wearing pants
  • Maybe gain a couple kilo’s
  • Take every opportunity as a reason to give up
  • Don’t let anything get in the way of eating an entire carton of ice cream in one sitting
  • Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and just focus on butts
  • See the world through the magic of the Internet
  • Spend more time doing what really matters – Watching Netflix
  • Forget past mistakes and press on to make newer, greater mistakes
  • Stop making resolutions, just get out there and start eating cheese

Self Portrait – 2014

It’s a wet Saturday afternoon and I’ve been procrastinating. But at least I’ve got something to show for it.


Self – 2014-07-19 by SteveZed on deviantART


Hockey Night

Now that I’ve moved to Toronto, my cousin and I can get together and watch hockey together! And it just so happens that his favourite team, the Canadiens, are in the playoffs this season! We got together to watch game 7 of the 2nd round against the Bruins and I set up my GoPro to capture a time lapse of us watching the game. Because I’m all about time lapse lately. Enjoy!


Perspective


Of all the Vlogbrothers videos of 2013, this has been the one that has resonated with me the most.

It’s the “Harvey” moment. Where it’s too soon to tell if it’s an epiphany, or a pivotal moment, but you can tell that you’ve definitely not felt worse, and things get better and better from that point on. That resonating experience that truly marks the first day of the rest of your life.

My 2 million seconds have already passed. It was when I landed back in Toronto coming home from Europe. Setting foot back down in Canada, having gained the confidence required to survive travelling abroad alone. Knowing that not only am I capable of achieving, but being filled with the ambition to actively seek that achievement. That’s my Harvey moment. That was the first day if the rest of my life.
