Day 16: Document a Life #30DaysofGOOD

Get your cameras ready. For November's challenge, we're asking you to document your life, from the highlight of your day to your favorite shoes.

Welcome to The GOOD 30-Day Challenge (#30DaysofGOOD). Each month, we challenge ourselves to improve the world around us—and our own lives. The challenge for November? To document your life. In an effort to help us all rise to the occasion, each morning, we will post a daily mini-challenge on GOOD.is and Twitter, along with a testimonial from someone on the GOOD team who's already completed it. We invite you to complete all 30 mini-challenges and share them with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr.


Today's challenge: Document a life. Above, Nina Lincoff submits an image of the life of her yogurt.

This is my morning yogurt's life cycle; from start to finish, my yogurt has a lifespan of about 10 minutes (... actually, it's infinite, if you count what happens to it post-eating).

See submissions from yesterday's challenge, document your commute.

Tomorrow's challenge: Document something you made.

Ready, set, go take a picture! Good luck completing today's challenge. Once you've snapped a shot, be sure to share it with us on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook by using the hashtag #30DaysofGOOD. We will then post a roundup of your images the next day.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

The area hit hardest by the fires, New South Wales, also had its hottest year on record, with temperatures rising 1.95C above average.
