I have a list of 29 life goals. Most people would call them “bucket list” goals, but I just call them life goals. Some of my goals take a lot of work (still working on that weight goal), some of them are just plain silly (like in 1995 when I entered a pie eating contest), and some like today just come unexpectedely.
Today I accomplished goal #18 (yes, they are numbered). Goal #18 was to make, publish, and get a video on youtube up to 5,000 views. The video that made it is called “Calle Revolucion, Tijuana, Mexico“. Last time I checked it the video was at 5,479 views. I posted this video to basically show my walk in Tijuana last year. I have over 100 videos now posted to youtube. This one is not in my opinion one my best works; sloppy editing, and no real soundtrack. I made it because I wanted to show how empty the street was. Calle Revolucion used to be a very crowded place on Saturdays when I was growing up in San Diego, but now it is just a shell of what it used to be. The things that were always there are still there, but it is like the lights went out and someone forgot to tell all the vendors to go home.
I had another video called “Diakokuya 6/12/10” that I thought for sure was going to make it first, but it didn’t. It was a short (30 secs), well edited video of my favorite noodle shop in Los Angeles.
Oh well, I guess I will never be able to figure out what makes the Internet tick. I am going back to Tijuana briefly in March, maybe I should make another video.
