"Be the change you want to see in the world." - Gandhi
The third part of my English project (1 being speech and 2 being Powerpoint) was to make a video describing my views on my topic. I wanted to make a vlog, since that style in itself related to my topic, but we were supposed to make a "commercial" type thing. Below is my video.
Things I learned from the making of this video: I'm a terribly geeky optimistic liberal. (although perhaps "learned" isn't the right term considering I already would have used all of those adjectives to describe myself.) My dad's reaction to me confessing that realization to him: "Sounds like someone raised you to be a geeky optimistic liberal." Me: "No, you raised me to be a pessimistic geeky liberal." Him: "Maybe you're only optimistic because you're too young to see how screwed up the world is. Or maybe you're optimistic because you're young and have the tools to work the change in the world that I didn't have."
Let's see... My dad is awesome.
Also, I suggest Google imaging "censorship." There's some funny stuff there that...wasn't school-appropriate. Plus some funny stuff that was, of course, but didn't make it into the video.
