a picture a day

hey everyone!

I'm Sam from A Careless Man's Careful Daughter, and I'm filling in for Selma today!

I'm not too good at guest-blogging (or regular blogging, come to think of it :p), so I thought I'd just tell you all a little about myself & my blog -- including two giveaways I'm hosting, ending soon!

I'm 22 (a few days in!), and lallygagging my way to becoming a nurse. It's my ultimate goal to be a Life Star flight nurse, but that one is way up there (ha, literally), and it's one that, if I don't ever get there, I won't be too disappointed in myself. So far though, I've completed a medical assistant course (11 months of accelerated classes), and am now easing my way into the job hunting process. In a few months, I plan to start EMT courses, and then hopefully by next spring start some nursing pre-req courses... fingers crossed all goes as planned! And when I say that, I mean, I'm desperately hoping my motivation doesn't abandon me halfway through.. hehe.

I'm really into anything outdoorsy, hiking, kayaking, swimming, the beach... love it all. Another big passion of mine is photography, which inspired a little project I decided to start on my 22nd birthday, earlier this week.

I love pictures & memories, and as cheesy as it sounds, I hope one day to be a stay at home mom with a bunch of kids and a house full of photos of our life. Again, cheesefest, I know. But even now, childless & single, I love to preserve every possible memory I can -- with the help of my camera, or even my camera phone.

And so, a couple days before my birthday, I decided I was going to try to tackle a "Project 365", by posting a picture a day, for the next 365 days. I'm going to be honest, that's a pretty steep feat for me. The picture-taking won't be the problem, since I'm constantly whipping my phone out to take a picture of something ... But my lazy posting habits might be a bit of an issue, hehe. To make it a little more "fresh" and sort of separate from my personal blog, I started a tumblr account, special for this project. I'm 4 days in (haven't posted day 4 yet) & going strong! Hehe. So if you're interested in pictures or 365 projects, or in anything I've said, I invite you all to check out my Twenty-Two in 365 tumblr, and my day-to-day, regular blog, A Careless Man's Careful Daughter.

^^ day 3 ^^

Even if you're not sold on the writer (that's okay, I don't even find my stuff read-worthy half the time, hehe), definitely stop by before tomorrow (ending date) for a UPrinting.com giveaway I'm hosting for a set of 100 custom-designed post cards -- winner's design! And then I have my $15 coffee gift card giveaway that ends on Sunday 7/31, winner's choice of either Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks!

Thanks for reading, and hope to see you there!

And also a huge thank you to my long-time blog buddy Selma for giving me a chance to say a few words at her awesome blog! Big shoes to fill! :)

I liked your writing, so there! Good luck on the 365 Project! I wish I'd have the motivation to do it too, but it's just not there!
