What a morning already... I missed my alarm and barely made it out the door for work on time. Once I got to work I couldn’t find my badge to get in the building. Went home, found my badge. Now back to work. Trash truck was in my drive so I had to wait to leave. Got back to work, and now my car is sitting on empty cause I didn’t have time to fill it on the way to work, both times. And I ran out of window washer fluid this morning too! 😅 Happy Tuesday people! Power on and remember, you can always go hiking with your dog later. 😂
It's warm outside, I'm sitting here in my tshirt enjoying the sunset at the lake in front of my apartment 🌅 Looking forward to summer days at mountain lakes, having fun with friends, joking around and generally not caring about anything else than the moment where we're right now 🏞️ #exploreyourfreedom
I was a little uneasy about buying a mattress without laying on it first. It seems most people are buying mattress’ by mail nowadays so I was more open to trying it.

Hello 👋🏻 it’s been a while eh? How are you all?! Yesterday, I got outside and snapped some photos for the first time in months and it felt so good! The weather has definitely shifted out here since all I wore out was a t-shirt, whereas only a few weeks ago I was wearing my big parka on the same trail. I feel so unprepared for this sudden change in seasons 🙈 anyone else? 🌸
I went to Thórsmörk and to Volcano Huts for the first time in 2016. I only had a little less than a day to look around but it was love at first sight. The intact beauty of the mountains, glaciers, wild glacial rivers and narrow valleys showed me something entirely different than the mountains I’ve been to in the past 15 years. #beyondthelands_ #iceland#sonyalpha#lostiniceland#earthescope#travel
Someone’s perspective can be drastically different from your own, so it’s important to put yourself in their shoes and be humble enough to see the world from their point of view! 🌍 Marriage has been the most humbling experience of my entire life because it has taught me that I am not always right (no surprise there). It’s easy to be stubborn and stand firm in my pride, but I’m learning that as a leader, it’s my job to see and understand things from my wife’s perspective. 👑 I have a lot... I mean A LOT... of work to do, but there is something beautiful about seeing the bigger picture with two perspectives instead of only seeing things with your own.
Teacher Tuesday: Annie Robertson, First Grade. Mrs. Robertson, along with her colleague Mrs. Laura Gamble, recently changed the long-standing Dinosaur Day Program into the Welcome to Roanoke, Flat Stanley! Program. "The Dinosaur Day Program was a beloved hallmark of first grade for many years and I loved being part of it during my first three years at North Cross. However, one of the wonderful aspects of working at North Cross is being able to implement new ideas and taking ownership of programming changes. Today, our first grade program is known as the Welcome to Roanoke, Flat Stanley! Program." In this program, students select and visit a Roanoke landmark with their family, complete a poster about their visit, and essentially act as "tour guides" during the program when Flat Stanley, a fictional book character, visits the sites and landmarks of Roanoke, Virginia. Mrs. Robetson also goes on to say her appreciation for the flexibility of the curriculum at North Cross. "Having the freedom to forge our own paths is why I teach here and not at a public school." #teachertuesday#dinosaurdayprogram#welcometoroanokeflatstanley#tourguides#flexibility#forgeyourownpath#privateschool#firstgradeteacher
go outside and let your breath be stolen away. find the forests, seek the seas, meditate on the mountains, mist covered from morning. we are nurtured by nature, born for the wild places; we've no business in cities, in buildings taller than trees can grow. go outside, and begin living again. tyler knott gregson
Between 1100-1200, more people lived here that at any other point. As people, goods and ideas converged, a complex society of thousands evolved. It is remarkable that this land, so hot and dry, supported such a large farming community. -paraphrased from one of the education trail signs. . . Makes me miss archaeology. 😓 I’m always happy to see these sites being protected, it’s so important to human culture to know where we came from. History is our greatest tool for improvement, both technologically and morally.
🍂🌊 • Waterfall • - Redirecting my work back to quality over quantity. Everything other than my Crimson Sunset, and Commute series feels uninspired. If you’re not bringing emotion to an image then you’re just documenting a landscape of the thousandth time. Expect a lot less fluff posts or mobile shots. You certainly won’t be seeing any landmarks or insta swings on my feed. - 📷 Canon 5D Mark ll 24mm 1.4 // F/11 S/160 iso/200 #gogojasonwaterfalls
It hurts because there are some things you can't fake. Like the feeling you get while watching someone you love leave without saying good-bye. It hurts because no matter how many times you wake up, you're still stuck in a world where they glorify violence rather than peace. It hurts because everyone around you wants change but no one has the courage to change for themselves. It hurts because you have so much in you but don't have the slightest clue on how to pour it out. It hurts because you're up every night thinking why does it hurt so damn much without knowing why. And lastly, it hurts because feelings matter and you could never run far enough from all the things you feel.
Going through my pictures, it was hard to tell what was real and what my camera did or didn’t capture. These lines look like the result of bad editing, but oddly enough, they were on the actual rock. Strata has always been fascinating to me and it’s one of the only times that nature creates an almost perfect straight line (at least from the right angle or distance!).
