In the past few I’ve researched everything I can on YouTube partnership and Google Analytics. I’ve monetized my videos and created the proper accounts needed. I’ve also been researching ways to spread word about my existence and my talents. I’ll soon (hopefully) be starting a Pod Cast. I’ve acquired the microphone setup and now have all the hardware needed. I am now only missing topics to discuss. I feel as if I’m taking on too many objectives at once. This gives me the same feeling I felt when I had all those unfinished quests on Skyrim. However, I am determined to go through with all of this. I guess only time will tell. Also, I want to remind everybody that Bilecik, Turkey is not exactly thee best place to try to expand your talents due to the fact that the city is so small and every resident is both close-minded as well as “old-school”. However, once again, I am determined to go through with this.
I am currently looking up how to do nice edits on videos. I’ve spent the last two weeks split between practice in both music and dance studio times, and searching how to shoot how to videos. I will start uploading how to dance videos on YouTube every week or every month. (Once a week or once a month). Looking forward to this new project. We aren’t that hopeful about the second stage of the competition as they have called at an inconvenient time for us. We might have to drop out of the competition. As there is no one to practice with I have been occupying most of my time with video editing software. Once I feel comfortable enough editing the videos to my liking I will start uploading them.
Update (August 10, 2015) : Well this project failed miserably. Maybe I’ll reboot when I have a better computer and camera.
When it comes to describe today, I guess I felt both the things and there opposites; scared and brave, excited and disappointed, cheerful and sorrowful, depressed and hopeful. lost but found. Let me explain why;
This morning I entered my physics exam and saw only 5 (five) questions on the test. Then, I immediately realized that I was not meant to be a student and should probably just jump out the window and save the teacher a paper to grade. All the questions were on the topics that I didn’t understand at all because not only is physics hard in English, it’s damn near impossible in Turkish. .After the test, my manager calmed me down, I decided to plan out the trip to Istanbul for wednesday. BTW (By the way), I got accepted into the talent contest and the company wants me to go to Istanbul to meet with everybody I’ll be competing against. After speaking to my manager and sponsor we’ve come to a conclusion that I need to spend the entire day tomorrow coming up with a brand new choreography to use for wednesday. Today, I was able to cut and slice the music and practice a little bit on my routine. Tomorrow, I will spend 6 (six) hours creating and practicing a routine to perfection.
Wish Me Luck.
Today the dance studio, my manager, and I came to an agreement of using the dance studio 2 (two) times a week to work on my dance routine, which we (my manager and I) spent 30 (thirty) minutes in today for practice time (and a bit showing of showing off), for a contest I will hopefully be entering soon. The contest we are trying to get a spot in is the biggest talent contest in Turkey, “Yetenek Sizsiniz Turkiye”. If we can get a spot in this contest, many doors will open for us.
We were able to get the dance studio to sponsor us with costumes and studio usage privileges. This will be playing a huge factor in our projects due to financial freedom from our biggest expenses.
The second day at the language school wasn’t bad. The students still came to class with the willingness they had to learn English from two days ago, student like this is what inspires me to continue teaching. For the next class, I’m thinking of starting with basic dialogues and conversation. Hopefully after a few classes they will be able to write their own dialogues to play out in class.
Being in a new country that holds adventure everyday and being able to take part in life changing projects feel amazing. Hopefully we will start taking videos and uploading them so I can show all of you how well my dancing is.
