Category Archives: October – A Random Photo-Journal of my 5-9

This month I become a “one quarter century” year old and I felt it fitting to use this photo journal idea as a way to reevaluate my life. I’m using a randomized alarm on my phone to go off 10 times between 5pm and 11pm and at the end of the month I’ll have 310 photos that will accurately describe life outside of work. Will I be happy with what my life looks like as I turn the quarter century, or will I have to reevaluate what I want the next quarter century to look like?
