A Look Back into Our Plans for 2019 (Ft Sheila Rogers)

4/1/2019
More
I feel like having goals and milestones to reach for is helpful. It's important to me that I don't judge myself based on what actually ends up happening because that can likely end bad for me. However, I think it's really for me to have something to strive towards even if I don't achieve it. Difficult goals are important to me because it makes like challenging which is good for my competitiveness. I don't think hard goals are great for everyone but they work for me. Sheila and...

How to Save Money Buying a Car (Feat. Justen Aguillon)

3/26/2019
More
I heard about a cool car buying strategy years back from my brother. He read about this way of buying a car that could save a LOT of money (thousands of dollars in my case). You basically get the car dealerships to bid against one another instead of paying for an overpriced, highly marked up car. I tried explaining it as best I could in this video but stumbled a lot with the words as I tend to do. haha. It's difficult explaining something I've only done once and many years...

Sometimes I don't feel very confident and happy in my performance. I tend to be a bit self critical of my content and myself in general. This is a follow up episode to the episode on Focusing with Peyton. We discussed how I felt the episode went and possible solutions to make future episodes better. Tactics such as having too many questions vs. too little questions (which is one aspect I wished was better about the Focus podcast). I'm happy that I am improving my skills in content creation...

Practicing Ordering Food (Ft. Peyton Zipoy)

3/16/2019

I decided it would be helpful for me to rehearse ordering food for the next time I go to a restaurant. Maybe this would help with my panicking when the waiter asks "are you ready to order?" and not ordering what I want. Peyton was helpful as always and I plan on using the skills she helped me with the next time I'm faced with the difficult decision of what I want to eat!

I learned that in photography, dynamic range has to do with the amount of light that our eyes can process.

I told one of my best friends about my first Pickleball tournament that I was hosting. He immediately wanted to play so we sat down and discussed the rules and basic strategy before his first tournament. Justen is very athletic and we enjoyed intramural sports together in college when we were roommates together at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (UMHB). So I knew he would be able to pick up Pickleball real quick for his beginner tournament. I am a Pickleball coach in Austin Texas and...

Did you know that I got kicked out of daycare? "You're going to have to start him early or find another place." My daycare teacher told my mom. Looking back on it I think most of it had to do with me being bored. My brain is happiest when it has a goal in mind and I'm working towards it. Thankfully I have an amazing mother that helped put me in environments that were good for me. She has done an amazing job of being there for me all throughout my life. Like the time where she drove 2 hours...

When You Lose Your Phone for the Day (Short Skit Idea Ft. Blaze Kunkel)

2/26/2019

Another one of Blaze's great ideas for a short skit was to have the main character lose their phone for the day. We decided that we wanted to also make this skit show a glimpse of what it's like to be deaf or hard of hearing. So we decided that when we make this short film, that we would have most of it be silent. I really liked this idea of Blaze and this is the one we settled on making the next time we get together to create. You can see the rest of our ideas...
