    video diary : a day in a life, shipping my poetry books, first time as a booth vendor [CC]

    November 22, 2019


    Hello lovely people! Welcome back to my channel. It’s okailen here. Today I wanted to film another vlog, but because today is Thursday, I don’t have classes until 6 P.M., so this is not officially a “uni vlog” because I’m not on campus. I’ve always wanted to do and the opportunity has surfaced. I’m so blessed to be able to be a vendor at Ecologie. Ecologie is a vintage resale store in Kennesaw, GA. If you’re around the area, let me know πŸ˜‰ Basically, being a vendor means I will be selling my poetry books, which have been printed. They’re almost there (& shipped). I’m just preparing some minuscule things like I cut out 125 pieces of paper because I have 125 copies. I thought it would be really cute to put a lil design and say thank you for supporting me, for giving me this opportunity, for listening, for sharing… That is my lil special announcement! I thought I would take you on a step-by-step process of what my first time being a vendor is like. I’m going to hit up the dollar store to get some lil decorations to make my table look a lil fancy, a lil cute. Then, I’m going to finish these cards, maybe wrap up some online orders. If you’re interested in getting a book, it’s called “A Poem A Day,” and all proceeds are going to people who are facing homelessness. Last year, over 30,000 students in my home state of Georgia faced homelessness, and it’s a really real issue, especially because Atlanta is such a prominent area. It’s known as the largest hub for human sex trafficking, which is technically slavery but sex slavery, so that is something that I think that really intersects with a lot of issues, such as climate change, capitalism, oppression, racism, discrimination… all of these factors playing into a really real and prominent dangerous situation for womxn of color, for the youth, for people part of the LGBTQ+ community, as I am as well. This is just a really important issue and I’m implementing my art into action. Hopefully, this brings and sheds light on an important topic (like this). So thank you so much again for being here, sharing this space with me, and I hope you enjoy the rest of this video! This is what the cover that has officially printed out and looks like. Then, this is what the back looks like! Here’s a lil flip through. I’m gonna try to do this the best I can because I want to give you a lil taste. All of my feelings poured into it ~ I cut out the letters and now, I’m going to start writing on them. I thought I would show you my design that I created… I was in art class and I got a lil tired and was falling asleep, so I decided to start doodling in my sketchbook. All of these things that you see here are things I have to get at the dollar store, things I have to prepare for the booth vendor. I came up with this tiny design, so it’s like a lil flower. Underneath it is: “Plant Love, Grow Peace.” Then, I’m going to put a thank you on the other side of the card. That is what I’m going to be doing. I actually ended up ripping out all of these pages and then turning them into cards. This is really nice paper from the sketchbook. It’s a lil too big for my liking, so I’m going to definitely size it down to make it a lil cuter. This is just a trial run. Thank you ~ Hello, so today is the next day after my whole card-making scenario. I’m back again, but I came back from the dollar store and I bought this lil trifold board. I’m gonna put details about my poetry book. I also bought some really cute butterfly and flower decorations that are artificial fake flowers. I think it’s gonna really jazz up my booth. Hopefully, it’s gonna look good. I have a vision and I’m going to try to practice it out and bring it to life. That is my update! For everything that I bought and that I will show you, I bought for like $10. To be real with you, that’s not that cheap but like also, it’s the dollar store and they have some cute stuff to be honest. Yeah, that’s what I’m going to be working on today and also finishing my homework! Alright, good morning you fine specimen of the human race ~ Today is the day. It is Sunday!!! I’m going to Ecologie right now. I just loaded the car with a bunch of boxes and a table for my lil vendor set up and I will show you once I get there, But first, here’s the look! I’m going for a very schoolteacher look and vibes. So that’s fun! Right now, I am finishing the remainder of my painting orders that I have to do. Then, I’m going to start packing my online orders and shipping them out!

    All About Kim Jong-un – Supreme Leader of North Korea – 김정은

    August 13, 2019


    Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy event
    of the week. Each week our staff of educators tries to introduce you to a person of interest
    in the financial world. This could be a person in government or banking or an important investors
    or trader, on just someone making the financial headlines in recent days.
    Much of the early life of Kim Jong-un is unknown to Western media. Presumably born in North
    Korea, Kim Jong-un is the son of Ko Young-hee, an opera singer, and Kim Jong-il, who was
    the military-oriented leader of the country for over a decade until his death in 2011.
    Kim Jong-un has continued the country’s nuclear testing and what is believed to be
    the development of missile technology despite international disapproval. He has pledged
    to focus on educational and economic reforms and is more mediagenic in his approach to
    leadership than his father. In the summer of 2012, it was revealed that
    Kim had taken a wife, Ri Sol-ju. While the couple’s exact wedding date is unknown, one
    source reported it as 2009. It has also been speculated that the couple have a child.
    North Korea’s controversial supreme leader Kim Jong-un has an estimated $5 billion at
    his disposal, according to the Huffington Post. The UN says this money should be spent
    on raising standards in this impoverished country and on its people but much of it isn’t.
    He reportedly spends an average $30 million each year on importing liquors into the country
    for his elite circles. His favorites are whisky and cognac, but not just any brands. He prefers
    the more expensive kinds such as Hennessy which can cost up to $2,145 for the best bottle.
    Kim spares no expense when it comes to his diet. He’s been known to order in top quality
    pork from Denmark, caviar delivered from Iran, Chinese melon and steaks of Kobe beef, a Japanese
    delicacy. While the exact figure he spends on feeding himself and his inner circle the
    best cuisine in the world is not known, the sum is estimated to be in the millions.
    Most people will only ever dream of owning a yacht, but Kim Jong-un is the proud owner
    of a 200-foot yacht that was described by his friend Dennis Rodman as a “cross between
    a ferry and Disney boat”. The top-of-the-line Princess yacht is kitted out with a Fendi
    interior and is valued at a cool $8 million. The Telegraph reports that the textbooks taught
    in North Korean schools apparently claim that Kim was a child prodigy who learned how to
    drive at the tender age of three. What is true is that he has quite an impressive garage.
    It’s been reported that he owns up to 100 cars after beginning to collect them at a
    very young age. His favorite brand is Mercedes-Benz. Kim recently gave an inside glimpse at his
    newly re-vamped private jet aptly named Air Force Un – a reference to the United States’
    Presidential aircraft, Air Force One. Having added luxurious touches like crystal ash trays
    and leather couches, the new look is a lot more lavish than the plane’s previously
    clinical interior and is likely to have cost him around $1.5 million.
