Can you believe it's almost the New Years? I can't believe another year passed by so fast and it's been a year full of ups and downs for sure (hint, more ups than downs). For this new year, i hope for my family and friends' health, and working harder in acting and writing. The other day as I was taking the train to work, I thought a lot about what happened in the past year, in terms of just the YouTube channel itself. Yes, I'm back on that baby after a long hiatus. I guess I got caught up doing many other different things, that I gave myself excuses to stop doing YouTube. In a way, it's to focus more on that short film because that is my ultimate goal--to act and write stories that pertain to the Asian American experience, and more particularly stories in Chinatown, NY. I already have the backbone of the story, just gotta develop that baby.
But back to YouTube. I started the channel when I was a senior in college. It was a fun way for me to express myself during thesis-chaotic-times. I guess back then YouTube was just for fun, but now it's all about very materialistic things. Haul this, favorite makeup that. I'm no beauty guru or stylist, so it's hard for me to follow the trend. But I don't even want to follow the trend because those topics are saturated. I want to do something that piques my interest, which is language and how you can use it in daily life. The language I know and love most is Cantonese, so I hope to do something with it. For now, it's me and pika roaming around nyc with some Cantonese thrown in. Don't know if I should add more or what else I can do. Maybe I'll come up with something cool along the way. I find the only way to figure it out is just to do it. So I'm gonna just dooooo it.
