Because weekends were made for fun
…As freestyle queen/personal hero Debbie DebÂ Â put it best.
My dear readers, you have nowÂ caught on to the fact that I rarely update during the weekends. Here are some things I would definitely rather do than blog on Sat & Sun (that I happily did this weekend)
#1 Spend time with my little sister. I have mentioned before how much I enjoy being a part of Big Brother Big Sisters NYC, and at some point I plan onÂ blogging aboutÂ examples of fun activities I have enjoyed that someone else could experience with their Little Brother or Sister. You don’t have to be perfect to be a friend to a young person. You just have to be willing to share some free time.
#2 Finish up editing my short film. YES. It’s FINALLY done. After much heartache and stress, we re-recorded all the audio and re-synced everything.. Get ready to check it out this week! I also plan on submitting it to the broadband emmy competition…
#3 Hang out watching netflicks selections with my honey <3
I was comparing notes with the previously mentioned honey the other day, and we both came toÂ the conclusion that because of work, we each spend probably 8-10 solidÂ hoursÂ per day on the internet. This is not counting the non work hoursÂ I spendÂ on the internetÂ reading blogs, gushing over fashion on streetpeeper, scouring IMDBÂ toÂ satisfyÂ myÂ current fascination with korean cinema, etc.
I feel likeÂ I am a pretty accurate example of the currentÂ average net user.Â All of myÂ work is essentially done using online tools and communicating with coworkers through AIM, I find out about what’s going on in the world through blogs, online versions of news channels and magazines, (although I am addicted to the printed version of Nylon Mag), and I have met many interesting friends (dating and platonic) through craigslist. Despite all of this net activity, I would like to be able to count actual blocks of time where I am NOT on. Just a personal choice.
… But for all your joost fiends, tomorrow I plan on posting an in depth pt deuxÂ description of my exploits in joost world, include reviews of the (so far) 29 channels offered… Stay tuned!
But now – time to watch the Oscars! 🙂
Hey Daniela….I just heard about the Broadband Emmy’s, on Shelly Palmer’s blog about it….good luck in the competition. I’ll be submitting a film as well. This is a pretty exciting time for online video….
