2017: A year of fun

HOW DOES A YEAR GO BY SO FAST?

It feels like just yesterday that I was working on my 2016 blog. It was long. But it was fun. This year, 2017, has been a lot of fun. I wanted it to be. There were changes that came around and I wanted to extract the most fun out of them.

With work, 2016 became very busy and I found that I was forcing myself to make time for photography. This year, I did something different; enjoyed every kind of photo I captured and just took some time to take a breath. Life goes by way too fast to not stop and take a breath.

Also, I discovered my ridiculous love for chai and mugs. Hah. Coming below in the journal. Don’t you worry about it. If you don’t believe it, go check out my #whenamardrinks hashtag and account on Instagram now!

I know this post is long. They are always long. I do this more for myself so that I can look through them each year and see how much I’ve evolved through my photography.

Each year always surprises me. Hope 2018 does too.

I got a Sony a7R II!!!

And I am LOVING this mirrorless life.

Technically, it’s my “dad’s camera” because he all of a sudden wants to become a photographer, but I keep using it for mini shoots around the house.

All else equal, I would probably still use my Canon baby more because I somehow like the weight of that one and I think it would probably be better for my adventure shoots. 

But, mirrorless cameras are wonderful and I’m glad we got one to give it a go.

Here are some shots (obviously only tea photos because that’s literally all I do when I’m home from school these days):

Hope you’re having a lovely December! I’ll be back during the last week with my annual Year in Review. Can’t wait!

Cheers,

Amar

And I met some awesome freshly-minted startups and entrepreneurs judging Startup Weekend Peel: https://lnkd.in/eKwHYv3 

December is here and as always, I’m hoping it’s the most wonderful time of the year! :-)


Me, UofT St. George, and my iPhone

Like I mentioned in the last blog post, I started my MBA at Rotman School of Management. If you don’t already know, I did both my undergrad and first Master’s program at University of Toronto’s Mississauga campus, so I feel like I’m attending a whole new university.

Secretly (shh, don’t tell anyone), I think I applied to Rotman just so I could go to school in Downtown Toronto. I love the architecture, and I love the mix nature and city all around campus. What an absolutely picturesque campus.

For the past three weeks, I have been getting off at different subway stations and walking to the Rotman building to try and find nature-filled shortcuts, hidden treasures, and photo opportunities that’ll make the experience over-the-top worthwhile for me.

Here’s a bit of what I’ve been up to (so far) :-)

I created a VSCO Journal documenting these photos. Check it out here.

Hoping to continue these adventures :-)

Cheers,

We got a milk frother!

I started my MBA at Rotman School of Management. Class of 2019, y’all!

But, in more important news, we got a new milk frother! #priorities

Kidding. MBA has been swell. I get to meet new people everyday, and everyone has a different story. Nothing better than that. Orientation came to an end with a scavenger hunt and boat cruise in Toronto.

This past week my days started at 5am and didn’t end till 11pm most nights. I realized how much I need my morning tea and how addicted I am to it. The addition of another kitchen gadget made me happy.

With that, I started a new theme account on Instagram! You can now follow me at @whenamardrinks

Anyways, this happened in the kitchen today.

Cheers,

Amar
