Aside from our actual relationships, this is the most dedicated relationship we’ve ever been in. 365 days straight of Snapchatting.
1 Year of Snapchatting
Whats the point of this blog?
There is none. If you thought this was going to be a serious blog, you should stop reading now. But if you want to see some of the hilarious truths behind what it takes to have a 1 year streak, keep reading.
Milestones we reached in a year
- Kristina’s house going from foundation, to a stake in the ground, to walls of a house
- Julia’s first Jays game
- Dates nights (with our actual significant others)
- Julia’s bridal showers, bachelorette & wedding, Honeymoon / driving across the country
- Birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, family events
- Snapping through a 200km+ bike ride from Toronto to Niagara
- Cat pictures…cause obviously
- Lunches, because #food
- New office space for Candybox
What it takes to get to a 365 day streak
- Snapping pictures of each other while we are in the same room to not ruin the streak
- Pictures of keyboards for those days even a filter can’t fix our faces
- Texting each other to “SNAP ME”
- The uglier the snap, the closer the friendship
- No matter the hour, no matter where we were, get that snap in…even on your wedding day
- Having 1 conversation on Snapchat and a totally different conversation on text
What did we learn?
- …Snapchat is great
- It brought us closer together. We get little clips of each other’s nights every night – manicures, rock climbing, dinner making, etc
- Our significant others adapted really quick “you should snap this” “did you snap this?”
- Snapchat became our new daily app, we went on Snapchat before any other app
We started on this journey before...
- Groups were available
- Rear camera filters were added
- Bitmoji was acquired by Snapchat
- Memories were added
Will we continue?
They say it takes 21 days to create a habit, and we are 17 times that. It’s now a daily necessity. We couldn’t stop if we wanted to. #CantStopWontStop. Also a women in Sweden holds the longest streak of 900 days, almost 2 and a half years, could be cool to make a leaderboard, just saying.
