School Started Last Week

Written by Damien Knight
on 6/14/12
So last week the summer semester started. I had taken spring semester as a break from classes, so I was a bit rusty. So much so I forgot the semester started last week and not this week. Oops, my bad. Anyway, been catching up as much as I can. Philosophy class is awesome but Spanish sucks big time.

Why does Spanish suck? Well, it’s just not challenging enough. I am a week late, yet I did a whole week of class work in one day. I mean really it shouldn’t be so easy. I been told to just go with it.

I can’t wait till fall classes. I will take classes concerning my major in the fall. I am a Biology Major at a community college. I absolutely love doing biology but to be honest I can’t wait till I graduate and move to a university that way I can do what I love: Geology.

I have always wanted to be a Palaeontologist and I am hoping a Geology Major with a Biology Minor will get me closer.

Anyway, I hope to write many awesome things in this blog about various topics for now.

Update Note: I wrote this in a blog I originally had on blogger. It was called Into the Shadow’s View. I forgot I even had a Blogger. It now is a new extension of this blog called “The Shade of Writing on Blogger”. I doubt I will post stuff there often but it makes it easier I think for me to comment on blogs ran on Blogger.

As for this post I am now at University studying Geology. I ended up dropping my minor. It was better just to focus on my major. With that I would like to remind everyone that this semester I have a research trip to the Mojave. If you wish to help fund that please click the donate button for it below. Thanks.

Youtube’s Policy

Damien Knight

Guys YouTube once more changed it’s YouTube policy for monetization. As someone who has been on YouTube since the birth of my daughter, I am highly upset. I remember YouTube when it was a brand new place and nothing was monetized. It was completely free. It seems that greed has taken over the platform. This morning Channels received this email.

I was approved for YouTube partnership in 2011, I remember how excited I was. I had vlogged daily back then, I wasn’t doing it to make money. I began vlogs and blogs back then to record my kids growing for my spouse so he could see them. His job keeps him from being home and I wanted that he not miss a moment on his newborn daughter. I never made much money. I think I have to date earned 2 dollars on YouTube.

For me I am not upset because I can’t make money on youtube. I am upset that the opportunity that Logan Paul and Pewdie Pie abused is now being stripped from innocent vloggers and creators. Why should they be punished for other people’s B.S.?

I know a few other YouTubers are now leaving the platform but for me I haven’t given up yet. I want to think that YouTube will realize what a bad decision this is and maybe change the system again. That said if they keep making it harder on new channels and creators I may just move The Shadow’s Lair’s videos.

In the meantime while we still are posting videos would you all go and subscribe? We highly appreciate it.
