It has been months. And a lot has happened. But finally, I am really happy to write that I have now returned to the sanctuary that is Life in Pixels — one of the few constants that I can look forward to in my otherwise way-too-busy life.
First off, the Euro Tour. So I went on a cultural and history tour of quite a few cities in Europe back in the beginning of June. And it was amazing! I will write more about this in later posts, as I am currently involved in a few exciting (albeit extremely hectic) things.
Which brings me to my next aspect: you may have noticed that Life in Pixels was under a bit of change over the past few weeks. I’ve been campaigning for a leadership opportunity at school, something I’ve been looking forward to before I even set foot in Crawford College, and I decided that, to add a new angle on the campaigning I should take mine online. So I did a minor overhaul of the site to suit the requirements of my campaign, and I do hope the results are positive. Today was the voting, and after this there isn’t much that can be done in terms of getting votes; I sincerely hope, however, that I do get elected. I’ve got a cauldron of ideas (that metaphor never gets old, does it? ;)) that I’m really excited to implement.
So, moving on. School is crazy as usual, and this term has some exciting projects in store. Prime amongst those is my Grade 11 movie project, which is going really well. I can’t say much about this as yet (a mutual agreement between my friend Bryan and I), but we’re well into the story (in fact, the screenplay is almost finished — just got the last scene or two to write now).
Then there’s my writing. Regular readers will know how much I love this. Yet there doesn’t seem to be much time for it anymore! I haven’t worked on my manuscript in quite some time, and I can’t wait to get a chance to work on it again. But in the mean time, I’ve decided to do something interesting. Now usually, I write my short stories on computer, with very little planning done on paper. But this time round, for my next short story, I’ve decided to put my Moleskine notebook to good use. I’m writing the entire thing on paper, and will then type it in digital format. I do intend to publish it on the blog once it’s done. It’s just a little experiment I’ve decided to undertake to take the monotony out of what my life is like right now.
I’m really glad to finally get back to the blog, and as usual, I do hope to post as often as possible.
