Operation beautiful

I remember the first time I came across a note that was associated with operation beautiful. I remember I was having a really bad day that day and was absolutely frustrated with the math class I was taking at the time and I was going through allot of personal issues as well. When I happened to stumble upon the note while washing my hands before heading to class, it really made my day and I took the note with me. I looked at the note sometimes and it always made me smile. I eventually taped the note to a bathroom mirror a couple months later. Although for about a year, I somewhat forgot about the whole project up until recently when I came across the website again in my bookmarks this past August 2011. Then one weekend I sat down and made up about 60 cards and started spreading them around at different public bathrooms. I also went through vista print and got 250 business card sized cards made up so I can put them in Christmas cards, birthday cards, restaurant bills and wherever else. So I have been participating in Operation Beautiful for about 6 months now on a regular basis.

I just want to encourage other people to participate in this project. You don't have to do anything crazy, you can even carry around a post-it note booklet and a pen and just write "You are beautiful" on a note and stick it in the bathroom on the mirror, or stick it in the bill when you are leaving the restaurant or on someone's car window or make a video on youtube about it and share it with your friends and family and encourage them to share it.

It really is an amazing project that is so simple yet so powerful and it has changed my life.

Thinking things out...

I think tonight has really been the first night that I've started to get serious about my youtube channels and trying to find work. I'm hoping that I can start applying for around 10 jobs a day and start rolling in the interviews and actually get something soon and with school starting Monday. That may hinder that slightly but I am only taking 2 classes at twice a week. So that isn't too bad. I'm just getting somewhat frustrated with the job search because I haven't gotten even an interview yet and I need the work.

Now with my youtube channels, my main channel at least, I'm working on some videos to start posting but I'm trying to decide what my upload schedule should be. I'm thinking Friday mornings. I already do daily vlogs on my vlog channel. I just want some sort of schedule on my other channel so people can expect a video every week and come back. I don't really do it for the views or the money at all, I just want to put useful video and videos that will make people think, inspirational videos and reviews and stuff. And the only way people are going to see that is if I get more views I guess. *lol*
