Hey guys, so just wanted to drop this video on the blog. Earlier “today” OWLS had their July technology end of the month recap livestream and I was part of it. I was really feeling good about it since I actually sat down and outlined like 90% of the stream
the fam kidnapped me for food making the other 10% so I missed the ending outline and I think it showed through?! I mean, I try to outline other days but this day I only really felt like I was going to collapse from nervousness 10 minutes before the stream started usually i’m shaking all the way through. guess enough practice makes betterish
EHERM. Joining me on this nervewracking adventure was Jack from Animated Observations so if you ever wanted to know what he sounds like, NOWS YOUR CHANCE. He’s got a good voice! (It’s been eons since I last said this, Mr. Lopez, are you possibly being dethroned?!). And did an awesome job summarizing and picking out the main points of all the posts #jealousofhiseloquency
For this month’s topic, we will be discussing how technology impacts our relationships with others and how it improves our lives (such as in communication, education, and etc.) by exploring the technology used in various anime and pop culture worlds.
Funny story: After the livestream ended, I had to book it to my brother’s new high school to do his registration (he’s now officially a freshman!!). I was 100% sure the stream was over. I mean, I pressed the button! But when I came back home two hours later, I found that the stream still said LIVE and it was at 3.5 hours long…!! I spent so long trying to figure out how to stop it. Don’t worry, the video isn’t that long. Youtube was nice enough to fix my errors but derp, there’s my technological butt at work…
And these were only the AFTER stream problems I had (kekekeke)
