June Goals

If you saw my last goals post, you’ll know that I’ve been trying to start making myself accountable for the goals I set for myself. By posting them on my blog, I’m able to come back at the end of the month and discuss whether or not I accomplished them. So let’s jump right in to my goals for June!

YouTube Channel

1. Get up to 225 subscribers on my channel by creating more content that my target audience will want to see. I should also try to increase people’s awareness of my channel through posting things on Twitter as well as getting involved in beauty forums. I just discovered Beautylish.com so hopefully I can do something with that.

2. Film videos while in Traverse City with Alex and my sister.

3. Post a video at least every two days.

4. Update my channel design to the new YouTube layout (which I hate and am not looking forward to being forced to switch to).

5. Post more fashion and outfit videos

Personal Life

1. Write in my journal every day. I have yet to accomplish this and will really have to focus and remind myself.

2. Start the process of getting an apartment with Alex. So hunt for places, pick one, and get the paper work going before he leaves for Germany in July.

3. Spend the last hour or so every night away from technology. So write in my journal, read, take a bath, play with Tardis, etc.

4. Not stress to much about birthday plans and just enjoy the day.

5. Spend as much time with Alex as possible and try not to think about him leaving for two months.

Academic Life

1. Finish my two spring courses strong! Finals are at the end of June.

Work Life

1. Focus on updating the content for the website’s I’m in charge of. Try to get faculty and staff involved in deciding what our target audience is and what we’re trying to communicate to them.

2. Start planning a fall “orientation” event I came up with to get new students to the department interacting with faculty, current students, and alumni. I also want to use the event to get people more engaged in our social media.

What a busy month June will be.


Making Videos

I for one really love watching YouTube videos. Although my obsession has definitely picked up in the last month, I’ve always found YouTube a really good way to waste time I may not have. Recently I’ve started to mull over the thought of starting to do my own videos to tie into this blog. So I’ve been looking into video cameras and programs to use to make the videos and I’ve come to a big conclusion. Making videos, even if they’re just for YouTube, is a serious art form. So much effort goes into the editing process alone, and that’s on top of the time spent recording and thinking of what to say. With this new ambition to get my toes wet in the video world, I have a whole new respect for YouTubers and anyone who makes videos. This respect has started me in a new path…



I just ordered a Flip Video Camera last night and am anxiously waiting its arrival so I can get started making my videos.

The boyfriend’s helping me out with finding a good program to use to edit my videos.



Now all I need is some ideas about what I should make my videos about. That’s where I could really use your help, seeing as I’m completely void of any ideas. All I do is sit around trying to come up with topics.



I’m looking just about everywhere for inspiration, and I’ve watched a lot of YouTube videos in an attempt to find a type of style to morph mine around, but I could really use some assistance. I’m thinking I’d like to make it like a continuation of this blog and talk about the same things I would on here, but in video form.



What do you think? Leave a comment telling me what type of videos you’d like me to make. I really appreciate the help ( :
