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.
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.
So in Turkey, some people call YouTube (Yu-Toowb) as “Oytub” (Oy-Tuub), and it’s really weird. When I first heard people say this, I was filled with confusion. As I was trying to figure out what “Oytub” was they continued to describe a video they watched. By the time I figured out “Oytub” meant YouTube, there explanation of the video was finished.
Anyway, last night I uploaded the first video of the weekly publish. This video was shot in Bursa, Turkey. The track name I am dancing to in the video is “Wamono” by Hifana.
Today, in approximately 4 (four) hours, I will be meeting up with my manager in the studio to work on the second video. I am super excited about getting ready for this competition. I was so hyped yesterday that I watched the previous contestants of the contest. Honestly, almost all of them were amateurs. Only one team was decent and they copied their ENTIRE set from another dance competitions contestant. As a dancer, I was absolutely filled with hatred. Can you imagine spending HOURS, that turn into DAYS, that turn into WEEKS, then to MONTHS of practice, and someone from another country steals your entire show by doing the same exact moves on an other countries talent competition?
As I was filled with furiosity by being just a dancer and seeing this, I couldn’t imagine how the original dancers that came up with, and performed, that set felt. Honestly, if it was my set they stole, I would’ve opened a law-suit against them.
That’s just not cool.
Anyway, here’s the video we shot in Bursa, TR. Enjoy.
P.S. – ( 🙂 If you Like, Comment, Subscribe, and/or share the video it would make me very happy. 🙂 )
Sorry I haven’t been able to upload as frequent as I normally do, our first exams have started and I’ve been hitting the books hard. In intro to computer science we started basic C coding and I feel amazing about it because I already know the topics. I got a head start from Texas by taking the classes as mentioned in some of my previous posts. I’ve edited the dance video I took in Bursa and will upload it tonight (time zone according to Istanbul) and publish it here on my wordpress.
ps. There is a little yellow spider bro that keeps coming onto my laptop and just chilling there, it’s getting kind of creepy.
