Week 2 update

As Jeff pointed out to me, I need to learn to edit out the beginning and ending of the videos so I don't look all goofy trying to hit the record/stop button.

Day 2 with Day 1 recap :)

So...I had some issues with using PhotoBooth on my Mac to record these videos. For some reason the audio is not consistent. So I recorded a "day 1" update yesterday and again this am, only to find out there was no sound! I tested out iMovie tonight and that worked. However what I didn't know was that recording in iMovie makes the file REALLY big! So it took about an hour to upload to Vimeo and longer than that for them to convert. But its here and ready for today. Mark showed me how to export from iMoive which turns it into a .mp4 (vs a .mov) and makes it much thats good. I will try that tomorrow. I also need to learn how to edit out the first few seconds where I'm looking down to click the play button as I look really silly in the freeze frame in both of these! of the delicious dessert from tonight!

Day 0

Well I am officially on what I'm dubbing my "sabbatical". Today is day 1, but we ended up getting Friday off also as an extra/bonus I called that day 0. Though with 20 weeks off, do I really need 1 more "extra" day? oh well...I wasn't going to go in and volunteer to work that day!

This is my time off from work while I relax a bit, complete some items on my "to do" list around the house and look for another job. I need to get my resume updated and ready to go also. That is top on my to-do list.

This was recorded on Friday, but I needed some help from my tech friends to teach me about Vimeo and uploading.
