A Quick Outdoor Vlog… And Some Bloopers

Since the weather was nice over the weekend, I decided to fire off a quick vlog on what has been going on and why I didn’t post last week. And I throw in some bloopers at the end (even though I normally do not save my outtakes.)

Three Down, One to Go

Well my third year at Herkimer College has come to a close and my first year as a New Media major which now means that I have one year left before I graduate next year.

It was by no means an easy task especially since my laptop needs a new battery which hurt me as far as my online classes went but I still managed to get everything done even if it meant I had to use the library to finish up everything including my Communication Arts Portfolio which you hopefully saw in my last post. As far as grades go, all I know is that I passed Communication Arts Portfolio and I’m looking at either an A or an A- in Social Media for my work on my social media platform in an attempt to raise awareness for Net Neutrality. If you want to check out my blog for that the link is here:

  • So with my laptop troubles, that also means that I won’t really be making any new videos for a while until I can get a battery. So that means that I will have to go back to old-school blogging for a while. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have any new projects in the works. For a while, I have been considering creating a short story blogsite where I can post my short stories. I actually came up with that idea when I was tweaking my Social Media Stranger short story that I wrote in my English II- Lit class and that I later posted on here for all to read. I’ll have more on the short story site as the summer continues. And as soon as I get my laptop working again and start working on videos again, I will let you know.

    And speaking of which, I am enjoying the lovely weather that we have been having for the last two weeks which is proof that summer has arrived at last and you know what that means: Another year of “hot weather, hot chicks,” which is my philosophy as far as summer goes. So hopefully the summer will be successful.

    Well that is kinda all I have for now. I just wanted to keep you up to speed on what I have been doing and hope to see you all soon.

    Another New Semester

    In case you may or may not be aware, I have officially started my third year at HCCC this week. Yes, folks. The beginning of the end has arrived. And this is my first semester in my new major which is Communication Arts and New Media. And so far, things are going pretty good. I think my courses may be easier this time around.

    Oh, what’s that? What do I have for courses this semester? Well, on Mondays and Wednesdays I have Photography and on Tuesdays and Thursdays I have Computer Graphics and Design. And that’s not all. I am also taking a web design course. And it’s an online course so I don’t really have to be on campus a whole lot compared to the last two years. And I have Fridays off like I did towards the end of last semester. The way it stands right now it doesn’t look like any of the problems that plagued me last semester will rear its ugly head. But it’s college, you know.

    In Photography, I’ll be going old school with some old school black and white equipment. In Computer Graphics, I’ll be learning how to design regular stuff using Photoshop and various other stuff which I’ve only had mediocre success with in the past. And as far as my online course Web Design goes, my ultimate goal will be to create my own website. I don’t really think it’s going to be connected with my regular activities here, but at least it will be very useful when I continue to expand. Next thing you know, I’ll be able to rule the Interwebs. 😄

    Sometimes it isn’t easy transitioning back to college after taking a summer off. However, I don’t really have that heavy a workload this semester. Right now I don’t really have to worry about tests or anything. Most of the final exams I have will mainly be presentations which is a load off. Hopefully, I will be able to avoid the disaster that befell me last semester with the erratic scheduling.

    So yeah, there you go. My final year of college has officially begun and it will be a recurring theme throughout the remainder of the year and into next year. As far as what I plan to do after I graduate, I don’t know. One idea I have and probably should do is relocate to another state and I’m not sure. Maybe continue my education in a college, but I gotta go where I can have better opportunities to be successful be it job, relationship, whatever. Because whatever I’m looking for I’m obviously not gonna find it here in New York. I’ve gotta go where the opportunities are.
