December 29th. This is very late but how did your Christmas go? My Christmas was fun, but nothing special. My dad had work so it leaves spending this Christmas with my mom and brother. We usually don't go anywhere or do anything so I nudged her to go to the family dinner that was held by my dad's side of the family. I can say that it went better than I thought. We shared food and exchanged red envelopes as a family.
It was also great seeing my cousins that I haven't seen in, I don't know how many years.
But, that was my Christmas. Simple. How was yours?
Saturday, December 19th. My circle of friends is very small, but I'm glad to call them my friends! Having a Christmas break is definitely the time to hangout with my friends, see them open my gifts, and laugh together. Those are the best moments that are never forgotten. I want to take this time to appreciate all of my friends and sticking around to see my awkward craziness.
I'm the type that actually loves having friends, but don't get in many groups of friends because of my different personality. I wouldn't say that I'm shy or that I hate being around people. I love being around people, but I guess once I'm in a large group of friends I always seem to be the one that's left out, so I just stay away from all of that.
Let's talk about my break so far! The first weekend I had my friend Maxine come to my house to do a bunch of nothing, but we had fun while we were at it! The second week I had time to spend with my love and it was great to talk to him while we have the time to. This past week I went to Pleasant Hill to meet up with my friend Shimmey and we both picked up a friend at the airport and walked around San Francisco. We hung out for a couple days before they both had to leave to the airport on their flight to Anaheim. I also had a chance to go visit my high school and relive some experiences! It will all be in my upcoming vlog!
So, I want to thank everyone that took their time to spend with me even though we do a bunch of nothing all the time! Love having company, having laughter, and making memories!
December 13th. Since it's a break from school I decided to play with my new iMac and editing on iMovie. I also want to upgrade to Final Cut ProX when I get the money. I've been doing a lot of filming for YouTube and a ton of editing. I'm trying to make better quality videos for my viewers and learn more about editing. It does take some work and time to make a video look nice, but I'm willing to use this time to learn.
It seems that I'm busy even when I'm not doing school work, but this is what keeps me going. Even when I have lazy days, most of the time I want to be productive so I find making videos very satisfying.
Sometimes there is a difficulty since I want to upload two videos a week, I need to work on those videos and at least get something started so I don't have so much work to cramp in one day. During the semester I've been trying to make videos that require less thought and editing, unless I have the time. When I have the time I try to make my content better for my viewers. It sucks but it's something that I have to do when I'm a busy college student. I think that maybe a video or two a week is better than no video at all. The only exception is if my week was so crammed that I couldn't get a video done at all and don't have one backed up.
My content is sometimes inconsistent in a way that my viewers don't know what kind of videos I'm uploading for the week until I have the videos up. But, I guess that's not too big of an issue since most beauty YouTubers don't have a specific video that they upload either. I try to go by what is requested, that's my favorite thing to get. I love requests so if anyone has a video idea or two, don't be afraid to tell me!
That's how it is with my YouTube channel. I just always hope to improve more and more for my viewers to enjoy and share my videos!
December 6th, 2015. I'm glad that it's time for break, next week is my finals week and I'm happy that I only have one final so I get a whole week of break before my final on Friday.
I get 5 weeks for break which is the longest Winter break I have ever had. I like it! But, I know that what follows is more stress from schoolwork and wishing for the next break. I hope to get a lot done during my free time like editing photos, videos, and having time to hangout with my friends that I haven't seen in a long time. It seems that I have to catch up on so much since college workload made it difficult to do some things.
I really want to do something and go somewhere. It always feels like I'm stuck home so if my mom allows me, I would definitely go out instead of being stuck in my room. We will see how much I will get done this Winter break, but it is long needed!
I received my iMac on November 30th, and I couldn't be happier. I really love it, the way it looks and the performance. I'm excited to use it in the years ahead! The only problem with getting an iMac over a Macbook is that I can't carry it with me any where, but the performance is just so much better than getting a macbook pro. I also thought about what prices were the most inexpensive. I ordered this iMac on Black Friday so I only got it for $900 which is a great steal!
Sometime in the future if my old laptop really breaks down then I will have to purchase a macbook, but for now I will stick to this because I'm loving it. I'm trying to get used to OS X, since I have always used Windows as an OS. I can't wait to learn more about using OS X and hopefully start putting out better content for photos and videos!
