To celebrate turning 30 Cesar Kuriyama decided to take a year out of work and enjoy life. Along the way he decided to start documenting his journey by recording just second of video per day. The resulting video was seen around the world, as was his TED talk on the topic which has been viewed over a million times.

Inspired by video people have compiled their own, here are some of our favourites. Starting with with Cesar’s:

This second video is by James Bernal and documents a year in which he “moved out of Bed-Stuy to Chicago, went to Colombia, turned 26, got paid to travel to the Galapagos Islands and Barcelona. […] started some new jobs, quit some old ones […] It was a year when seeing a humpback whale in the wild was no big deal on one day and other days when the most exciting moment involved standing in line at the post office.”

“If you pay attention, you’ll spot tons of friends, bike rides, planes, trains, and automobiles, sea turtles, some performances by The Drums, The Promise Ring, and Beach House, a marimonda, eagle rays, Wyatt Cenac, the world’s tallest species of palm tree, Barcelona, a bathtub filled with PBRs, plenty of dogs, Notorious BIG, a lotta pizza, Riff Raff, and a whole buncha other stuff.”

More recently actor Andrew McClain documented his year. For him 2014 was a year to remember with the birth of his child, lots of travel and a house being built around him it’s hard not to be outright jealous when watching this.
