I’ve been making One Second Everyday compilations for ten years now. It’s so hard to believe because when I started I just thought it would take a year and be done. It turns out, it’s a Sisyphean task but I get such a positive response each year that I don’t mind. Below is the one I just wrapped up for 2022.
Having a three year old and a two year old brings its share of ups and downs but the ups are super fun. We didn’t travel a whole lot however we found fun things to do here in Lethbridge and on the occasional trip to see the grandparents.
Here’s a look at one second of each of my days during 2021.
Yesterday I completed my One Second Everyday project for 2020. It turned into the Nesslin and Ian show given that this year I was working from home for a lot of the year. One can really see them growing up over the last 12 months in this video.
I also got a bit of help from Andrea because on the few days that I missed getting a one second clip I was able to borrow any live photos or videos that she happened to take.
It doesn’t seem like much, but it’s really tough to get a clip every single day. The worst is on days when you think about getting a clip and you know it will literally just take a second but then you think oh I better try and get something more original or interesting or oh, I’m going to see friends today so I’ll get a clip with them in it and in the end you just forget to do it. The worst.

With the new year comes another episode of my One Second Everyday series.
Some highlights in 2019 include: a trip to Hawaii, teaching at a new school, many trips to Medicine Hat for work, traveling for the ATA, weekends at the lake with friends, the birth of our son, attending a speech by Barrack Obama, water park outings, a new iPhone 11 Pro, our trip to Palm Springs, and visiting with family and friends over the Christmas holidays.
I’m closing out the year with my annual One Second Everyday video (see below). Lots of exciting things for us this year — especially wonderful was the arrival of our little baby girl, Nesslin. Astute viewers will see foreshadowing that 2019 is also looking to be a great year.
Part of my ongoing One Second Everyday project, here is One Second Everyday 2017:
Each and every day over the last four years, I’ve been recording short videos, cropping them down to one second clips, and compiling them into yearly summaries.
Here is the one from 2016:
2015 has been a great year. Most excitingly, Andrea and I got engaged and will be married this year!
Some other highlights of the year include:
- travelled to Kawaii, Hawaii
- working on the reserve in Brocket, AB
- spending the best summer of my life in Waskasui, Saskatchewan
- camping at the Ness Creek Music Festival
- seeing my first NHL hockey game
- attending a Broadway play (in Edmonton)
- started training for a new job with Vivant
- Christmas vacation with my family in Medicine Hat and Andrea’s in Saskatoon
Here’s one second from every day last year (made using the One Second Everyday app).
Once again I have completed a year of “One Second Everyday” videos. I travelled quite a bit in 2014 and despite the occasional rocky week or four, it’s been a fantastic year.
Some highlights include:
- teaching shop in Vulcan
- playing chess against a grandmaster
- travelling to Palm Springs and Disneyland
- travelling to Salt Spring and Vancouver Island
- enjoying music and friends at South Country Fair
- trip to BC interior
- getting an iPhone 6
- back to Palm Springs / Palm Desert
- visiting with family and friends at Christmas time
I hope you have as much fun watching my year as I had living it.
Every day for a year I have been trying to remember to record and editing one second clips of video so that at the end of the year I could show the world what I’ve been up to for the last 365 days or so. As it turns out, I missed a couple of days close to the end and one in February but so long as that doesn’t bother you, here they are, almost every day of the year 2013 in one second increments:
