christmas + new(-ish) platform

I hope you all had wonderful Christmases. If not, I hope the New Year is far more prosperous.

I adored every second of Christmas, it was one of my favourites from recent years! My ‘big’ present or so to speak was a new camera. I’ve wanted a decent camera for about three years now, but this was the year that I decided to take the plunge. So far I amĀ loving it, so much so that I’ve set up a new Instagram account for it – @clodafoto (shameless plug number 47828364…)

This is a sample of the kind of photos I’ve taken so far:

 

I intend on posting photos to The Electric Oracle too, something I haven’t really been doing up to now.

Until the New Year,

Love and luck,

Moment app | did I cut down on screen time?

As promised, here’s the video I put together of my experience with the Moment app. If you didn’t see my last post, the Moment app is something you can use to track how much time you spend glued to your phone (and / or other devices).

Overall it was a helpful experience, although it didn’t have a huge impact on reducing my screen time. In one week alone I spent over 24 hours staring at a screen – 24 hours! That should disgust me, but in reality it doesn’t.

For a start, the app showed me that I only picked up my phone for around 5 minutes at a time, so it’s not as if I’m spending consecutive hours staring at Twitter.

I also used my phone for essential things such as replying to messages, and generally keeping in touch with loved ones.

Give the video a watch if you’re curious as to how the app works and how you can benefit from it!

Love and luck,

Clodagh X

(P.S. : I’m so sorry this is a day late, what with college and other responsibilities there are not enough hours in the day anymore!)
