Have you ever talked to the camera and just felt super awkward? I have been vlogging the past few weeks, and let me tell you, it's such a weird feeling talking to a small lens. I vlog in public and I get funny looks from people and I make a complete fool of myself.
The finished product is what I crave to see. I really enjoy video editing and I think it would help me improve my skills if I edit vlogs often. In the future, I want to do more fashion videos with my own clothing designs. I can't wait for all of these projects coming up.

Adobe Premiere Pro has been such a cool program to learn. My boyfriend and I were able to work collaboratively on this cool project this past weekend. It was really interesting to work alongside him. We bounce off each other's creativity and that's the way to go. People who create together, stay together.

Wow! I am truly blessed to have spent a whole month back home in Washington. It was sooo worth it. There was never a dull day, and even if I had some down time, I enjoyed being at home in peace. I was in the presence of many thinkers, creatives, and go-getters out in the 206. Every person I bumped into had a different perspective on life and shed some light. Along with all the interesting people I was with, I did a lot of dope things too.
Let me tell you all the fun, neat places I was able to go to.

The weather has been perfect in the PNW. What better way to spend a beautiful day, than in Capitol Hill? I'm in love with the Seattle art scene because it's filled with grunge fashion, street art, and beautiful people.Read More
Being back home has given me a whole new high. I've been reunited with the ones I love and its been truly amazing. I came home in the early hours of dawn Saturday morning to surprise my mom and sibs. It was so early and they were so tired that they didn't even remember I came over that morning.
So far, we've had brunch at Endolyne Joes, a cute lil hipster restaurant. I recommend eating there during dinner because they have a more selective menu. Also, we took a walk on a private beach that was nice and quiet. Lincoln Park was another place that we went to catch some Pokemon and people watch. One night I went to Alki with my sister to enjoy Seattle's cityscape. I would go to viewpoints to see Seattle each and every night if I could.
I'm not sure what the rest of the trip will have in store for me. I just know I'm going to appreciate every second with my loved ones and enjoy the encounters I have. Follow me on snapchat to see my adventures. My username is toriiidany!
Until my next post.
