Adam and Joshua's (Adua) presentation takes us on their extraordinary journey in order to see life from their perculiar perspective. After experiencing the post holiday blues back in 2013, they strived to make everyday different by allocating a theme to each month and prevent their lives from feeling 'Groundhoggy'. After experiencing months of foxes, herbs, flags and even the number 37, they discovered you can make every day worth while and emphasise your creativity by the limitations you place upon yourself.
