There are 3 main goals I would like to achieve. The first would be to improve my video editing skills. I have used programs like iMovie many times before, but I definitely do not feel very confident about my knowledge of all the tools and tricks that are available through these programs. If I could learn at least some of them, that would be great.
My second goal would be to create a big variety of videos. I used to upload videos of me skateboarding, so it was always the same type of thing. I’d like to try to do more, maybe vlogs, or comedy style videos or anything that is different. I would love to come up with something new.
My third and final goal is to find a way to capture the attention of as many people as possible on Youtube. I have spent hours watching videos on Youtube and I have even re-watched some about a hundred times. I’d like to know the “magic formula”, or whether there is one, and maybe use it myself.
It was a cold morning and even though I was angry I had class at 8:30 AM, somehow the snow made me smile! (which you can’t see because of my scarf)
Another week has passed. Sadly, I could not do this summary on a sunday, because I was stuck on Union Station in Chicago, but that deserves its own blog post. This week consisted of two daily creates, the first one was something I must do every day, and of course, I had to upload a picture of me playing soccer. The second one was supposed to be a favorite breakfast BEVERAGE. Being the idiot that I am, I of course uploaded a picture of an orange. Funnily enough, this was the biggest test of my creativity yet, and I believe that I aced it, because I named the picture of the orange “OJ”. Only then was I able to say to myself that I had completed the assignment (and ok, maybe it wasn’t as great as uploading a picture of ACTUAL orange juice but hey, at least it stood out).

ALSO: I decided that I will not be including pictures with the weekly summaries, at least for now. Since they are summaries, there is no prevailing main topic. And since I hate adding pictures that have nothing to do with the post at all, I just refuse to add pictures to this type of post right now. For now.
michiganradio.org is a site that provides news. It mostly focuses on news that influence or are interesting for people living in the state of Michigan, but it definitely includes some important world news. On the homepage, they feature news about politics and law. Of course, there are more categories. The site also advertises (don’t know if this is the right word, maybe “links” would be better) Michigan Radio, a radio news channel.
For me the best part about michiganradio.org is the Most Active Stories sidebar, where (as the self explanatory name suggests) you can see the most popular articles.
