A few years ago, my friends and I decided to create a YouTube channel for fun and as a way to document and remember our experiences. We filmed our first video in an empty lecture hall and spent the entire night editing until the early hours of the morning. Our original channel was called "Straight Ties," but we later changed the name to "MuteSwan" because we wanted to focus more on music-related content. Over the next few years, we made a number of videos featuring our experiences at Simon Fraser University, in downtown Vancouver, and during our travels in Europe. Although these videos are no longer visible on YouTube, I still have copies of them on a flash drive and occasionally watch them to relive those memories.
Making videos has always been a passion of mine, and I loved every aspect of it, from coming up with scripts and working with a team to the actual filming and editing process. Although I don't have as much time to do it now, I still have a fondness for video creation and miss the excitement and fun of working on projects with my friends. I think I'm a bit of a nostalgicist at heart and really throw myself into anything I do, which is why I have such fond memories of those times.
