I’m proud of being married to and just proud of my wife. She declined to be photographed for this purpose, and on account of my wishing to remain married I came up with a way around it. She just graduated with her MBA last weekend, which she’s worked hard for. She makes me do things better than I would for myself. This Sunday we will celebrate one year since we put on rings and signed paperwork.
If only I knew where to get a lens to take better close up pictures…
When I went back to school for my current career, this award was given to one student only. The day it was given to me was one of the proudest of my life. I worked so hard to make my life better and in turn, make the lives of my patients better.
@heartny indeed! I need a Woot! magnet, but have not “earned” one yet!
My pictures are appearing sideways on computers, but look totally normal on my phone/iPad… I blame @seeds for this technical difficulty!
P.S. if I did earn a Woot! magnet, it would be proudly, but neatly, displayed on my fridge!
Took this picture from my front yard a couple months ago after a storm. Posted it on FB and my friend (a professional photographer) liked it and said I should print it on canvas so I did. It now has a place of distinction on my wall at work.
The things I’m most proud of are either intangible or things I wouldn’t openly post on the internet. (Hmm, how to say that without it sounding wrong?)
I’m not a professional musician, but could probably say that at times in my life, I’ve been an avid amateur. Avid enough that I used to sign my name with a little cartoon horn at the end (kind of dorky in retrospect). Nowadays, I mostly just get in shape to play for special church occasions and the like.
Despite the limitations in my talent, I managed to land a spot in a prestigious national band in college, got to play with a number of amazing professional musicians over the years, and met a lot of super interesting people. I even shook hands with (and got an autograph from) a standing US president as a surprise side effect of playing in a ceremonial band. (I almost posted a photo of the autograph, but the horn is way more photogenic )
I’m in medical school! It’s currently exam week and I just took a 6 hour test. I take the first part of Boards in a month and attempting to study for 10 hours a day is a struggle. But I’m loving it and am so proud that I’m here at all.
It’s a really small apartment, walkup, with a wonky bathroom layout and thin walls between it and the other units. I don’t even own it, I just rent, for an amount that is great for New York City (and not even Manhattan!) but outrageous anywhere else.
But it’s the first place I’ve ever lived where it’s all my own money paying for it, and all my own furniture and stuff, and I love it immensely and am proud of the work I’ve put in to make this lifestyle possible.
I know it’s my nails again, but I’m oddly proud of them. I used to chew my nails really badly. It took forever to quit. Even though it’s been years, I still get the urge to chew on them. The whole reason I was able to finally quit was because I started doing nail art on them and it took me a long time. I didn’t want to ruin my hard work. I painted my nails every 1-2 days at the beginning. It was insane.
Wee bit personal, so not going into too much detail, but I’ve been dealing with some things over the past few years, and… I’m not where I want to be, but I am increasingly proud of how far I’ve come/how I’ve handled things/how I’m moving forward.
I’ve been working my butt off, literally. Filling my Apple Watch activity rings on a daily basis (started this past September, and then kicked into high gear with only a handful of missed days since mid-January) has been a real challenge, but I’m feeling good, and quite proud of myself for keeping at it! It has allowed me to comfortably go hiking in Vermont, trail walking in Tecate, Mexico, and snowshoeing in Finnmark, Norway.
I hope you won’t think less of me… But also hope there will soon be less of me for you to think of!
