This video brings us to the end of the Video Challenge!

It’s been a great experience, and I’ll continue to be doing video on this blog.

The people I thanked in the video are:

And, of course, you fine people for watching the videos and giving me feedback! :D

I noticed many, many things I need to work on to make the videos more entertaining and useful.

Some of them are:

  • Use more facial expressions… Make that, any facial expression! :P
  • Improve tone (I’m too monotonous at the moment)
  • Add more humor (I tend to freeze up in front of the camera)
  • Include video effects
  • Prepare more for the videos

If you have any comments to share, please feel free to share them in the comments section! :D

Guilt-Free Play

November 6, 2010

In theory, recreational activities are meant to bring joy, but rarely do so in practice.
Instead, we are filled with guilt whenever we take time off, and end up stressing and worrying more than relaxing.
If play isn’t fun, then it’s not serving us in the way that it should. So why do we feel so guilty [...]
