Day 32 at Techie Youth

Today at Techie Youth I completed the computer designed objects assignment. i was unable to finish the digital art in Krita because I simply did not have the tools to finish it. I jut have this laptop I am working on and completing it this way would just take too long. I took the image of the drawing and edited it in a photo editor to give it some color, finally I posted it on Saachi along with the other art piece.

Tue. Aug. 16, 2022

Day 31 At Techie Youth

Today I've been working on the selling computer designed objects assignment. I was able to use Kira on my computer and the tutorials under it showed me how i could take a traditional drawn piece of art and import into Kira where I can make it digital art. the second tutorial is showing me how to paint, being that my drawing is in black and white it would look better if it had color. the only downside to that is how time consuming it is, this is definitely going to take me a while until I finish it. Once its done I can post on my Saachi account.

Mon. Aug. 15, 2022

Day 30 AT Techie Youth

Today I finished my drawing and posted it on saatchi art. I put a clear reference to techie youth in the art the art piece and put the link to the website in the description.

I did have trouble with the other websites but saatchi was the one that worked out iin the end.

I already started and will be posting it Monday once its done!

Day 22 at techie Youth

Today I learned about what project manager and a product manager is and what they do. I like the idea of being a product manager more than a production manager because a project manager has to deal with the entire project which is multiple departments while a product manager just focuses on the product and it could be a little fun depending on what the product is.

Day 15 at Techie Youth

Today marks my 3rd week at Techie Youth and I did a unit about entrepreneurship. A lot of the people I saw are very successful in their fields and they are their own bosses. Personally I don't I would want to become an entrepreneur because I'm not much of leader simply for the fact that I don't want to be responsible for others. I'm just a worry about myself kind of person but not in a selfish way.

Fri. Jul. 22, 2022

Day 14 at Techie Youth

Today I learned about selling my art online. I want to start small and see how that goes, the only challenging part about that if making something that people would want to buy. That's just my problem though I can learn marketing and all that stuff but the art end of it is what has me nervous.

Thu. Jul. 21, 2022

Day 13 at Techie Youth

Wed. Jul. 20, 2022

Day 12 at Techie Youth

Today I learned about time management. Time management is a big thing for me because I really procrastinate a lot. I find myself doing this a lot when I have about one or two things to do in the week. Because i have the whole week to do something I just keep putting it off for the next day until its the last second and then I panic and rush. I am going to start planning out my days with a planner and get my priorities out the way first before I start relaxing.

Tue. Jul. 19, 2022

Day 11 at Techie Youth

Day 10 at Techie Youth

Today marks my 3rd week at Techie Youth! Today I learned about saving money and how you can live with just the basics, all the extra stuff like fancy clothes and accessories are not necessary. They pointed out that Food, utilities, transportation are important but for me entertainment is really important. I just can not be bored, I have to be entertained during my free time haha

Fri. Jul. 15, 2022

Day 9 at Techie Youth

Today I learned about Scams. I learned that not every remote job that you see online is legit and it's somewhat easy to get scammed. I also learned about being a entrepreneur today and I got my LinkedIn account back so that's good.

Thu. Jul. 14, 2022

Day 8 at Techie Youth

Today I learned about job interviews and work etiquette. The first video I watched was a job interview simulation. The man in the video would ask questions and then wait for a response and that was the que for the viewer to speak. I played along and quickly realized I need to work on articulating my words, speaking up and clearly because I sometimes slur my words and I have a bad habit of saying yea instead of yes. These are somethings that I really need to work on especially socializing which I find difficult.

Wed. Jul. 13, 2022

Day 7 at Techie Youth

Today was kind of slow, part of assignment I worked on wanted me to google myself and see what comes up. The purpose of that was to see if anything bad or inappropriate came up because once you apply for a job that's what most of the jobs do before they hire you. The only thing that came up for me was some old Facebook account that I had forgot about. Later I completed another assignment that wanted me to follow like and share Techie Youth on all platforms. That took way longer than it should've because LinkedIn was giving me a hard time, I typed in my password in wrong a couple times and they had to this security measure asking for my ID....that was annoying but I got it done

Tue. Jul. 12, 2022

Day 6 at Techie Youth

Today in the writing unit I learned about technical writing and one of the links in that unit was speed typing test. That test was fun at first but I couldn't even get to the average speed... I guess typing fast isn't one of my strengths. Later today i completed another assignment and did a campaign to bring awareness to Techie Youth and its causes, I even posted it on twitter

Mon. Jul. 11, 2022

Day 5 at Techiw Youth

Last entry I did concluded my first week at Techie Youth, today marks my second week and its going good. Today I learned about SEO backlinks, customer service and guess blogging. Out of those three things guess blogging is what I had a little interest in, it just seems easier than guess blogging.

Fri. Jul. 8, 2022

Day 4 at Techie Youth

Today I learned about book publishing. I learned that to publish your book you first have to decide if you are going to do it traditional or indie. The traditional authors kind of have it rough because they don't have as much creative control over their own book, they have to answer to their publishers. I also know that New York Times is really bias against indie authors, which I find unfair. Even if the author book gets published there is still many obstacles to go through like if people don't by their book or if they get dropped by their publisher for any reason.

Day 3 of Techie Youth

This is my third day with Techie Youth and I think I'm getting the hang of it now. I finished two assignments today, one of which I had to make my own website. Making my own website fun especially since the assignment told me post my talents on the site, like a portfolio. My talent is making traditional art, that just means art that isn't digital although I do want to start that as well. Posting my art online was new to because i never shared my art with the public like that before. I only ever showed my art to my class or to my family, but to just put it out there in the world like that I realized that I wanted to put more of my art out there.

Wed. Jul. 6, 2022

Day 2 of Techie Youth

Today is my second day on Techie Youth and I'm still finding out things to do remotely.

Creating a membership site seemed interesting to me but I don't know if I really have the skill to teach people something. My talents are drawing and painting but when I do those things I just "do them" if that makes sense. I don't follow any step by step rules on how to draw, However when watching one of Eric's YouTube videos he mentioned selling art online and most importantly doing what you love for a job. In doing the digital assets unit I was please to find out there are a multiple ways to do that, while even being a digital nomad!

DAY 1 of Techie Youth

This is my first day with Techie Youth and honestly a little shocked with how much you can do and how much you can earn just from working at home. One of the things

I learned about that really has me interested is Digital Nomadism. Being a digital nomad sounds so freeing, being able to travel and work wherever you are and make money all at the time. I never knew a career like this even existed I always thought having a good career would be working at some office with a bunch of people in the same building dat after day, but being a digital nomad sounds perfect to me. Plus I never really been much of a people person my self so working remotely really has me pulled in.
