Something you don’t like

Day 17 of the challenge and, while I’ve been slow to upload the last weeks’ photos, I’m actually quite proud of myself for getting this far – I’m over half way! 

As the title today states, this is a photo (below) of something I don’t like. Surprisingly, it was hard to think of something to photograph! There are lots and lots of things I could put here. I don’t like the pay gap, I don’t like the fact there are people dying every day because they can’t afford clean water or nutritional food, I don’t like the fact that at the minute I’m lazy as anything. I don’t like my body, I don’t like the person I am, and I certainly don’t like the amount I complain about things in general!

So instead I decided to go with something simple.

Today’s photo is of the light that comes through my curtains day and night. Until I rearranged my room, I didn’t realise how bright it is on this side of the room! While it’s not a bad thing, I’m awake from 8:30am because of it being too bright, most mornings I’m awake before this time for the same reason. This seriously ruins my sleep plans.

Last night, one of our friends was visiting for dinner and stayed on late. He recently broke up with his girlfriend of 3 and a half years, and so he needed out for a while. He came round, we had dinner, chatted, drank…. a lot of drink… and at around 3:30am he went home. So it was probably around 4 when I got to sleep. So waking up at 8:30 this morning was painful. That painful I’ve actually just woken up from a nap (whoops).
And on that note, I’d better get a move on with some revision before dinner!

Well it’s Sunday again already and I’ve been back in Glasgow for less than 48 hours but it feels like forever! Which adds to the fact I’ve no excuse for not continuing the Photo A Day April challenge. But I’m here now and that’s what matters! Isn’t it?
Where you ate breakfast – 11th


I forgot to take a picture of where I ate breakfast when at home so this is our table in the flat. If you look at the table, you’ll see my newly washi-taped candle. We’re currently trying to figure out how to make the flat more homely and I’m not sure if that counts but at the same time it’s all I could think of doing. I’m currently doing the same to an old beer bottle to use it as a vase. Breakfast today was a slice of Veda bread – a malt loaf sold only at home.
Stairs – 12th


I’d planned a better picture of Baron at the top of the stairs but I’m sure you’re aware that animals don’t always do what you want them to do!

Something you found – 13th


This game defines my childhood. Race cars, crash cars, tailgate them, it essentially was a guide on what not to do when actually driving. I found it hiding at the bottom of a drawer when I was at home and can’t wait to get playing it again!
How you feel today – 14th


This is how I felt on Thursday – all I wanted was for it to be Friday! Friday meant Glasgow! And Glasgow meant being back with the flatmates.
Sunset –  15th


Credit to someone on Tripadviser for this photo, however it’s of the sunset over Sol Beach House Ibiza – the hotel we go to when we’re over there. In fact, I’m trying to find a way to go back!
Flower – 16th


Meet my orchid. It’s not the happiest at the minute because I left it in the dark without much water for almost 4 weeks… But hopefully I’ll bring it back to life.
