A Year of 1SE

As the title says, I’ve been officially using this app for a year! A year of collecting a random second throughout the day.

It was really fun watching this back, as I haven’t watched it all compiled since 6 months ago! I still feel like I spend a lot of my time sitting in a car. But it’s also the best time for me to remember to film my second. My favourite section in that whole year is the 12 seconds spent in Japan!

It is crazy to think I can compile a whole year of day to day life into just 6 minutes. I’ve decided to stop doing the app now, as I have a habit of forgetting it a lot now. But maybe I’ll pick it up again at a later date. I like the idea of starting it again in January of next year.

Have any of you guys been using this 1 second app?


Hello internet! My name is Angela. I write daily about my travels, life, thoughts, and ramblings. I live down in New Zealand with my lovely husband, Rory. Thanks for stopping by!
  1. I keep forgetting about trying the 1 second app myself, but I love seeing the videos of them compiled! It seems like such a fun way to look back on a glimpse of your day. πŸ™‚ It is rather crazy to think that your whole year was compiled into 6 minutes! How fun to look back, though. πŸ™‚

    1. It’s definitely worth giving it a go! It is so much fun to look back at all of them down the line πŸ™‚

  2. I love March 3rd and April 21st πŸ˜‰ Also seeing those clips of Shadow πŸ™‚ I’m 100% going to start doing this on the 1st of January (if I remember as I meant to start at the beginning of this year). I know I can start whenever but I’m too anal to start mid year ;P

    1. Thank you haha! I was also thinking of coming back into it at the beginning of the year. Or maybe even on my next birthday! It’d be quite cool to have them set on certain milestones πŸ™‚

  3. I don’t know this app… not an expert in this field, but collecting memories in images or videos is particularly β€œemotions provoking” …. πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

    1. I definitely agree! It’s really nice to look back and remember all those past moments πŸ™‚

      1. Yes! And the acquire such a sweet bittersweet taste…

  4. This app looks awesome! It’s pretty neat that you can look back on 1 second of a day and remember it so vividly πŸ™‚ Love the jigsaw puzzles and Shadow clips!

    1. Thanks Chanelle! It’s definitely a lot of fun! Such a neat way to look back on the past year πŸ˜„

  5. I nominated you for the Liebster Award, check out this post for further details.

    1. Thank you for the nomination πŸ˜„

      1. You deserve it

  6. Haha how fab! Must be so fun watching back a full year!! What a great idea!! xo

    1. Thanks Carina! It was a lot of fun! I definitely recommend the app πŸ˜„

  7. I did see this a bit ago and watched it on Youtube before coming back to your post! I loved watching it and hopefully I can keep up with mine, but honestly some days I forget and end up having to put in a picture or something!

    1. It’s really easy to forget sometimes! Quite a few of mine aren’t taken on the same day, but as my daily routine is pretth regular, I take two seconds in one day to make up for the forgotten day πŸ˜‚

  8. I love that you still use this app!! I have to admit that I stopped using it because I forgot about it. Maybe I need to start using it again xx

    1. Haha, there’d be a few days where I forget, but I tried my best to make them up! I’m glad I was able to keep it up for a year πŸ™‚
