YouTube, Non-Profits, and Photography

Well, I’m at it again. This isn’t my first time on YouTube. A few years ago I started a channel but it was short lived, I only posted three videos before I got too carried away with other life responsibilities. But, I’m back. I have started vlogging on YouTube.

I go into more detail on the channel, but essentially, this time around, my goal is to just have fun with it. By vlogging and blogging, I hope to enjoy the little things in life more, and so far it seems to be working. Sure, I’ve only been doing it for 2 weeks, but so far it’s turning out to be a pretty satisfying hobby.

I’ve got some goals for myself, but I’m not going into this with the goal of becoming rich and famous from it, as fun as that sounds. I’m content with my videos getting 30-50 views, it’s just great documenting my life. If you’re feeling adventurous, feel free to check it out. Constructive comments and subscriptions mean a lot! I’ll put a link to the channel at the end of the post.

This week, I’ve started my new internship as the social media manager for Purdue Recreation and Wellness. It’s actually a lot of fun, and I feel incredibly lucky to have it. I can tell it’s going to be a lot of fun this semester, and hopefully less stressful than the internship that I had last semester. I enjoyed my internship at Find8 don’t get me wrong, but it definitely was a huge stressor for me.

Classes are going pretty well, also. In one of my classes, I’m going to be working a lot with Lafayette Transitional Housing, a local non-profit that works to help people experiencing homelessness in the community. Expect updates with that as well.

Kelsey and I also went to Indianapolis yesterday and had a bit of an impromptu photoshoot downtown. She suggested that I add some photos to my blogs, which surprisingly I hadn’t even thought of before. So, let’s go for it. The fact that I’m dating her notwithstanding, she is an absolutely incredible photographer. I can’t give her enough credit for the wealth of talent that she possesses. It’s truly awe inspiring. If you are ever in search of a photographer, I highly recommend you hit her up. Holy cow. She’s just awesome, and really needs more recognition.

These are just ten of the many incredible shots she got while we were down there. Who knew I was so attractive? Kidding. Sort of. Still kidding. But seriously, to all reading this, you need to check her out I would plug the crap out of her even if we weren’t dating. Her info is at the bottom.

So, relatively short blog post, I know. I thought it would be nice to give some plugs and updates though. There is a lot of super exciting stuff coming up, and I’m absolutely stoked on life. Purdue basketball is #3 in the nation, I’m finally finding myself in what I want to do, my girlfriend is one of the most talented people I’ve ever met, and I’ve got a new fulfilling hobby.

Watch out Maslow. Self-actualization here I come.
