I have been neglecting Cultural Life recently — my last post was on December 11. Oh dear!

Throughout most of the first half of December, I was busy studying (I have exams a week from today and I am counting down the days until they are over!) and then I was ill over Christmas and was unable to do much at all, apart from sleep. But it is a New Year now and I am expectantly looking forward to taking part in the Daily Post’s ‘Zero to Hero’ 30-day blogging challenge. If you want to take part, check it out here.

Happy New Year! And thank you to all of my readers and followers.

Photo challenge day 1: Resolution

Happy New Year!

I have chosen to take part in a 31-day photo challenge which I discovered via the blog, Fourtuitous.com. Starting off 2013 with a photo every day sounds like a fun idea to me!

Day 1: Resolution.

My resolution for 2013 is to get outside and go places. I want to spend more time outside, exploring the world, and less time sitting behind the steering wheel of my car.

I used the photo-editing website, picfull.com, to have some fun with applying filters to my photo.

Hello 2012

What will you bring, I wonder?

Hello 2012!

I’m not going to lie — I didn’t take this photo today. When I woke up this morning, January 1, the dawn was gray and not very spectacular. I thought this image was more appropriate for a Happy New Year post!

Have a wonderful 2012.
