one second every day – april 2014

i’ve just realized i’ve been making these little one second videos for over a year now! hooray! :)

despite the bugs in the app and the last-minute-panics (“oh my god it’s almost midnight and we still haven’t filmed one second today!”), it’s been going well. i still miss around 1 or 2 seconds every month, and it still feels like most of them are really mundane… but i love the result and the thrill that watching these 1 second memories brings. they make everything so vivid!

plus, i’m always surprised at how many people seem to enjoy them as well! every now and then, friends, family or even people i’ve just met tell me they look forward to these little glimpses of our life every month. it’s funny, and it kind of makes me feel bad for being so lazy making them sometimes…

so anyway, i just wanted to say thanks for watching! here’s april for you all:

in april we ran, we roadtrip’d in bavaria (and ate an inordinate amount of sausages), saw the coolest museums, went to london for the second time, did a cooking course at leiths, met with lots of friends… it was ridiculously amazing! :D

ps – here is what the past year looked like:
2013: march, april, may, june, july, august, september, october, november, december.
2014: january, february, march.

one second every day – march 2014

i’m a bit late on these posts, but i haven’t stopped making them! :) here’s march:

march had its ups and downs. the first half was great: we were in portugal, did a tedx presentation (more on that later), ran on the bridge, celebrated lots of birthdays… and then we came back home with a vicious stomach bug and ear-throat infection as souvenirs.

despite this, the boy still managed to run berlin’s half-marathon, and on march 27th we saw another of berlin’s foxes – so the month ended on a bright note! :)

one second every day – february 2014

…is it really mid-march already? whoa! here are 30 seconds of what we did last month:

it wasn’t a particularly exciting month, truth be told, but it included:

– lots of meals with friends – our favorite form of socializing :)
– trip planning!
– postcrossing’s new terms of service (finally!)
– a valentine’s day date to the german technical museum <3!
– lots of studying for edx’s science and cooking course, which is now over (i passed!)
– a freshly painted kitchen ceiling (after an incident with a washing machine upstairs…)

plus, though not featured, there was a lot of practicing both for the tedxoporto talk and the lisbon mini-marathon. more on that later! :)

looking back at all the seconds we’ve kept last year makes me really happy. so much silliness, so much exploring, so many shared moments. none of these seconds is a masterpiece, but together they’re quite remarkable in the memories they bring up. i solemnly promise to keep it up for as long as we can! :)
