more types of writinjg 8/10

learnt more about types of writing for a job, blogging sounds cool but takes effort,

guest blogging is like self promotion ? i dont know the word for it.

if i were to pursue writing i would either do book writing or mangizes as a second choice to fall back on

Tue. Aug. 9, 2022

writing and types of writers 8/9

learnt about writing requirements to write for a magazine,

am currently reading and learning about if I were a book writer, how would that work out and what skills I need

depending on what I choose to write my writing style and formatting are going to be different , I might learn/do more later on and will try to remember to note it down here

cont artifactial intell 8/8

continuing doing what i did yesterday , also did a review of what I did yesterday cause I honestly don't understand some parts

I might change what I do next time since while the idea of learning AI is cool the actual action of doing it is very hard and complex

also did more reviewing later on in day on difference and similarities between ai robotics and other stuff , which is interesting as an outsider but I would not like to work in the field its too complex for me

Sun. Aug. 7, 2022

artifactial intell 8/7

doingg AI course today , it is very confusing

there is a lot that goes into AIs , and its very complex and admittedly i dont understand some of it so i will most likely have to review it , but its very interesting

learning python for AI reasons seems hard , i do want to learn but its time consuming, but thanks for the sources for where i could learn python

marketing 101 8/4

i continued marketing ? thats not what its called but that's what is being taught,

it gave me different ways to advertise my products to others , some of them were confusing to me such as the email getting subs for that part.

i listened to the videos and did text to speech for the articles

Wed. Aug. 3, 2022

eye strain and types of digital money making 8/3

i learned about different ways to make money , such as making AR filters on Instagram and snap chat, along with podcast and writing stuff online, such as AO3(that doesnt provided money but there are other sites that do)

it also connects with other stuff in other units which I think is cool , like digital marketing

eye strain is in the title since I experienced a lot of eye strain today that made it hard for me to focus

social meida growth 8/02

since i looked at doing art for a living yesterday and programs I can use, I decide it would be a good idea to see what platforms seem to be good for passing art.

i looked at insta first since its pretty much known for photo posting, however I do disagree with some of the points stated in the lesson due to how insta has changed.

I also took a look at wechat and facebook, not any of the others since I don't use them. its interesting how people can earn money on wechat

also, i did leave techie youth to do my own research on how the algorithm on the sites stated about has changed, so i looked at more "updated" info since i know for a fact the insta one is outdated(my reasoning for the inactivity)

messing around in art programs 7/31

admittedly didnt do anything much productive in terms of making progress in any assignments, but I was on digital art and learning how to use some new art programs which was pretty cool. i also got side tracked and attempted to draw, so yea !! no progress however today was a enjoyable day of learning how to use krita and gimp ! i might try 3d modeling programs next

Fri. Jul. 29, 2022

looked at comments and going back to some old stuff 7/29

i went to assignements and looked at comments for already submitted assignments, some of them looks like bots commented it or the person in question graded it at like 12am and needed coffee

I went back to the art thing about 3d modeling and did a tad of that , other than that, I don't think there is much else that interests me

Thu. Jul. 28, 2022

finished niche website assignment 7/28

worked on the images aspect of the website of the topic I think is considered niche, I finished it and uploaded it to the world which is horrible since it contains my dead name in the site and I will delete it as soon as it's reviewed since it makes me anxious.

yea unpublish the site after a few minutes since it makes me too anxious to have it up

update changed the name , so can somewhat upload it freely,

Wed. Jul. 27, 2022

a mix of things 7/27/22

i think i finished the quizzes and all for niche website, now its just a matter of choosing a topic. I do not plajn to profit from the website, I just plan on making a website based off of one of my interests.

But I have to find a way to link it to techie youth which I cant think of a way so that sucks. i might just outright put this is a homework assignment for techie youth in one of the website pages though.

also took a look at video editing assignment since admittedly I've been avoiding it for quite some time due to how much I do not want to do it but I feel like I should just get it overwith no matter how bad it is

Tue. Jul. 26, 2022

doing more niche website oh my god this is so muhc 7/26

i am continuing niche website and my god that's a lot to read , I'm not sure how far exactly I got today but I think I did good , due to a lot of eye strain it took me a while to read though it all , I only listened to the videos

Sun. Jul. 24, 2022

niche website thing 7/24

i did more looking around at different things but none of them interested me at first, I cant remember which exactly I looked at .

when I got to niche website I was like okay this might be for me and started doing the lessons and I like it

although I don't plan to profit from a website I just plan on making one for the fun

Fri. Jul. 22, 2022

exploring once again for something that interests me nad is doable 7/22

im not sure what i looked at at first, but for sure they bored me out,

did more looking around till I got to crafts, which interested me but I know its something I will never be able to pursue due to the cost of materials and such. was an interesting read though.

laser cutting and 3d printing is out of my range, however I can 3d model if I put in the effort

Selling Computer-Designed Objects and Technological Crafts is the name

completed assignment and looking around 7/21

finished up w the fundraising assignment and submitted it ,

took a look around what else could I do , that is actually interesting not boring and actually doable,

forgot the course name but its about growing enough on social media to earn money , looked around more and its just very outdated information.

did look at web development i think its called and seems interesting , but i prob wont do all the assignments just go on it learn a bit and leave it be , defo wont be doing the final assignment its too much

Wed. Jul. 20, 2022

funraising essay kinda 7/20

making a fancy "poster" for the funraising assignment , am also crediting the sources of where I found certain info so readers know its real . this is essentially an advertisement

I also looked at providing services cause it sounded / looked interesting but turned out it wasn't as interesting as I thought it was so most likely not going to do that

Tue. Jul. 19, 2022

done w analyst assignment moving on to funraising 7/19

Finished and submitted analyst assignment thing ,

looked around and realized I actually did fundraising quizzes and stuff , so why not do the assignment ? used some info from analyst assignment in the fundraising one , I still need to write like a mini essay for pathos but otherwise data wise its going well !!

Sun. Jul. 17, 2022

pretty much done w analyst assignment 7/17

i worked on analyst assignment today and I finished it pretty much I need to add finish touch and stuff but other wise its good ,

Thu. Jul. 14, 2022

working on video project and trying to make it look okay 7/14

taking a break from researching and reading articles for data online to do video project , I still need more pictures but I am just hoping mostly text will be fine since at this point of life I am running out of ideas

Wed. Jul. 13, 2022

researching for the assignment in analyist thing 7/13

I am doing research and it says to look at data and stuff so i assume i need graphs and such and i am at a road block as to what to do

I will get it figured out and i will also assume this is like writing a report of some sort

Tue. Jul. 12, 2022

working on the analyzist thing 7/12

getting through the analyzist lesson and will do research for the assignment when I have the time to since I have to go right now , its an interesting job but not for me

Mon. Jul. 11, 2022

more exploring and debating which courses actually caught my interest

i was watching videos for random courses till I landed on ones I liked, there QA / quality assurance one was interesting to me only cause I am a fan of coding , although this isn't the exact course I am looking for. nonetheless I will most likely complete it.

the others didn't really catch my interest much

Fri. Jul. 8, 2022

exploring , im not sure what does it mean by a meaningful title i will assume it needs to be long7/8

i didnt do the courses in remote careers today , but I looked at some stuff in hybrid career I think, and some stuff interested me so I took my time and looked at the stuff. Although I didn't do the assignments, it was nice looking at something that fall within my interest and learning about it.

course 1 finished course 2 time 7/7

i am working on the fundraising part of the remote careers and finished up recruiter and talent acquisition. The video for video editor is being put in hold since it does require a lot of footage, and I figured some of the course assignment ties into it, so if I do the other courses first its like two birds with one stone

Wed. Jul. 6, 2022

for today and yesterday ( cause i didnt know about this yesterday) 7/5 and 7/6


I completed the first two course and learnt about my first step into techie youth and the website and messed around a bit , learning how to navigate it and what I have to do to complete the program. I also finished the first two prerequisite units. It talked about time management and how to manage between stress and personal life and such, whereas the other unit talked about money and how to handle and deal with it, along with cyber security


I manage to get decently far into the video editing course in remote careers and I am doing the assignment at the end, and searching the web for stock audio and videos I could use , and attempting to piece them together. I figure it may take a while so I might do other courses while working on the e video every now and then on the side, since the other stuff are easier.
