New Experiences

 I have spent hours this week filming, and I'm really excited to start posting these. I've been doing on research on how to get partnered, because I want to be able to boost the quality of my videos and be able to access certain features. I feel like starting this out has been really rocky because it's new and I'm learning how to do new things. I actually never realized how hard it is to edit, it can take hours. Using iMovie is difficult to use because I'm not used to it. Also, it's been hard to get running because it's hard to be able to get viewers when you don't have certain features (being able to create your own thumb nails), I ended up figuring out how to get these features. This week though, I made a ginger bread house and filmed it, even though I don't know why. It ended up becoming a mess and lots of uneventful things happened. Filming is actually really fun, but it's a lot of hard work. I honestly never realized, and now I have gained more respect for people who do this for a living.  It's honestly really exciting to be inspired to make videos, even though it's really difficult to make time to sit down and record, even though I really enjoy doing it. Also, not that anyone cares, I'm not used to filming around other people and it makes me really uncomfortable. I think everyone is like that during the beginning of a new project. Anyways, I'm starting to think of new video ideas and am planning on filming a bunch. I have a book review and a Christmas gift guide planned, and I'm really excited because I love reading and I also love being able to buy people gifts and see the joy on their face. The book I recently finished (which I'm planning on making a review on) is Girl Online by Zoe Sugg. If you are unfamiliar, Zoe is a youtuber who has over 6 million subscribers on her channel Zoella. She recently has been doing so well on other projects, she now has her own beauty line out and now she has book out. I wasn't expecting this book to be great because I mean what can you really expect, but I will talk about that when I post the review, so look out for that. I will be hopefully posting this weekend, I'm not sure what I'll edit first, but I'll be posting something. I'm working on editing this video, and it will be up this week, and i'll put a few more up because i've been having a difficult time with everything. I'm really excited for everything that may be coming in the future and i'm excited to express my ideas.

The Theme of Christmas

It's getting towards the time where everything becomes festive and that makes me very excited. Everyone breaks out their light up lawn animals that have been collecting dust for the last year, and now it's that time again.The sweet peppermint drinks that actually taste disgusting, the classic Christmas music that you're sick of hearing but it still makes you happy, and the lights and trees that surround the world around this time. This is the time where I feel most happy, because simply Christmas is my season. One of the most exciting things about Christmas is being able to buy the people you love presents, it's easily one of the most exciting things. Also, just the smells, lights, and everything, it brings so much joy. I came up with a few great holiday DIYs (Do it yourself), and am currently creating a christmas playlist to get everyone in the mood for the season. I'm also working on a couple of other ideas and such for a christmas video, and if you have any you'd like me to try, let me know in the comments and I will try them out! I just want to create something that can easily transform areas of your home and be able to make someone smile. This video however is going to take a little while longer to put together, so expect it in the next week or so. This season is just inspiring me and making me want to create seasonal things. I'm very excited for the upcoming season and holiday, I hope you're too!

                  I never realized how much others can influence someone. I was watching youtube videos the other day, and it made me really excited. It's never the big things that get me excited, it's always the small little things that can make me smile. I was watching a fall haul, and I got so inspired to wear warm clothes and change my style somewhat. I also got inspired to change everything around me into a very festive place, which I am working on. I want to be able to inspire others like how I got inspired the other day. People always think it's a horrible thing to look up to others and have them inspire you, but honestly it's one of the best things you can do. I have finally figured out what I want to do with my channel and what I want to do with my teenage years. This week, I decided I was going to post a collar video with my friends Sara, Bri, and Fatima. We made a video called the Youtuber Whispers Challenge that was created by Joe Sugg. All of the videos i've seen of this challenge make me really happy and they're quite enjoyable. I've been having problems with quality, so I apologize but i'm learning slowly.  Youtuber Whisper Challenge

First Blog Post

                  We all have those dreams about who we want to be and where we want to be in the world when we're older. When I was younger, I started watching youtube videos, and I enjoyed them so much, that it inspired me to create my own. When I would get home and do my homework, I'd watch youtube videos whenever I got the chance, because I enjoyed them so much. I've always watched beauty gurus and comedy youtubers, because those are what I enjoy watching. And, I want to create content that I enjoy creating, that I would like to watch myself as a viewer. I don't want to focus on one thing like most youtubers do, I want to create anything that I want, because I end up watching just about anything that catches my attention. Since I was younger I always wanted to make videos, and I've tried several times, and it just didn't work out. But, now I have a camera and a laptop, and I can finally start creating content. I want to make my channel about everything. I have ideas such as music reviews, fashion trends and hauls, makeup hauls and tutorials, tag videos, vlogs, and just videos about life and whatever comes to mind. I have always been inspired, and now I want to take my inspiration and put it to use. I posted my first video, which is a fall trends lookbook, it isn't the best quality or the best content, but I put a lot of time and effort in it. The quality and content will get better over time, but for my first video, I worked really hard and I'm proud of it. I'm working on a few  other videos at the moment, and I cannot wait to continue making content.
