Life According to my iPhone Photos

It's always entertaining for me to go back and look through the photos on my iPhone. It's also necessary for me to clear out a bunch of photos that I don't need taking up space.

I am a screenshot-aholic. It's bad. I screenshot quotes that I love - I screenshot receipts when I pay my credit card through the app - I screenshot text message conversations -- I screenshot a lot. 

Kelly, of Design Crush, is posting 365 handwritten quotes in 2014. I try and limit the number of her quotes that I screenshot - mostly because it'd be 365 screenshots on my phone - but I think there's also a part of me that worries she gets a notification (Snapchat style) every time I screenshot the photo... and I don't want to look like a creepy, super-fan. 

Here are a couple of my favorites... You should seriously give her a follow, if you don't already, and join me in the obsession.

I think I picked these because they strike a particular chord with me at this point in my life. I love that she's doing this 365 Project!

Since I started training for the half-marathon, I've added quite a few stopwatch screenshots to the collection of photos my phone. 


I don't look at my time while I'm running, but when I'm done I like to do the math and see how fast I ran per mile. I was so shocked the other day when I did my 3.5 mile run and I ended up running a 10 minute mile - I've been running an 11 minute mile pretty consistently since I started. 

I had a really terrible attitude before that particular run -- I was tired, the weather was gross, and I just didn't waaaaanna!! (3 year old temper tantrum style) But right before I ran, I decided I was going to be better than my bad attitude. As it turns out, I was a 10 minute mile better than my crummy mindset!

I've got lots of photos from events including:
1. A cruddy-quality photo of Megan Mullally in concert (that bright blob on the right is her)
2. A pig in a tutu
3. The new KOSU event space
4. An awesome public art piece from February's Premiere on Film Row. I seriously got chills while reading what people wrote about our state
5. Oh, and our Developers' Luncheon event last week


I just recently did a major purge of the screenshots that synced from my phone to my computer. You guys, it was just ridiculous the number of "unnecessary" photos. But I just can't help it, I love love love pictures and the stories that they tell!

xoxo, E
