Video: Document Your Life: August 2014
August wasn’t the best month, to be completely honest. I was very stressed and unfortunately didn’t get to do all the stereotypically ‘Summer things’ I had planned to do this year. I just want to get this video over with and focus on September. Hope you don’t mind too much.

0:06 That’s my new YouTube friend Robbert. You can find his channel at youtube.com/iameverybobby. He makes videos about Amsterdam! We try to motivate each other to upload more frequently and he’s going to help me with my vlogging.
0:30 I went to see Boyhood at an indie movie theater this month. I really liked this part because it reminded me of me and my brother on road trips to France and describes a sibling relationship so well.

My dad had just called me that he was in the hospital and no one was really sure what was going on with him, so I was really worried about him. Turns out he had a… Wait, let me Google Translate this.
