Throughout the month of October, I will be taking up the 2016 #Vlogtober challenge. Vlogtober is a commitment that YouTubers and vloggers take to post a vlog (video blog) every.single.day throughout the month.
With the amount of fun that I had last December for the Vlogmas 2015, I thought I would try this one out in tandem with Socktober and all the traveling and adventures I have coming up. In this series, you’ll be able to catch behind-the-scenes moments of cool projects I’m working on, adventures I take (to Portland, Memphis, DC, and New York), and inside scoops to my daily life.
Check it all out via the video above, or watch it on YouTube.
On June 1, 2016, I celebrated by 28th birthday with a multi-day celebration with friends and loved ones. Below are vlogs from some of the experiences, including a birthday candy buffet at work, lunch and dinner outings with coworkers and friends, and a birthday party potluck on the riverfront.
One of the things I love to do most in St. Louis is check out art shows, openings, and galleries. In this vlog, I visit Museum Blue, Tuan’s exhibit at Millitzer Gallery, Bruno David, and the Luminary. I also included clips from earlier in the week where I hung out for a wine night with friends and work on upcoming videos for my main YouTube channel.
For 2016, I’ve decided to create a new YouTube channel that will feature original content, stories, and think pieces about identity, life, and creativity. This main channel will complement my current vlog channel which chronicles different journeys and adventures and behind-the-scenes of my life.
To kick off this channel, I started a series, In My Blackness, that introduces different parts of my life, experiences, and perspective through the lens of my racial identity and ethnicity. Throughout the 29 days of February, I will share stories about everything from family, to love, to style. Each video will start with me discussing what the chosen topic/word means to me and then elaborate with stories about it. Some videos will include additional imagery and archival video of others subjects I bring up. Others will include video of historic black women figures share their own truths about the subject.
I brought in 2016 with a big, brass bang as I celebrated in New Orleans with friends. During this week-long holiday vacation, the experience was full of countless planned and unexpected adventures and happenings, including:
- Touring the city and visiting the City Park sculpture garden
- Watching bands and eating great street food in the French Quarters
- Attending a free Usher concert
- Eating all the New Orleans “secret food tour” foods, from bahn mi sandwiches at the Hong Kong market to sugar cane, chargrilled oysters, shrimp and grits, crawfish beignets, wild drinks on Bourbon Street, and more
- Nearly dying on Frenchman Street (story for another day)
- Escaping into Exhibit Be
- Dancing to brass bands at Celebrations Hall
- Attending the second line parade and procession
This year, as a new YouTuber, I’ve taken up the annual Vlogmas challenge, which gets more people sharing their lives and stories together in the spirit of the holiday season. Each day, December 1-25, I will post a daily video journal to my YouTube channel, sharing lessons, adventures, creations, and more. They will update daily via this link, so be sure to bookmark it and stay glued.
Above is a playlist of recent Vlogmas posts. You can also view the videos via my Vlogmas playlist on Youtube.
