This week I took my first time doing multiple things that I had always wanted to do. The first thing I did was dye a lacrosse head, and the second was create a vlog. With the assignment this week I thought it would be a good time to kill two birds with one stone if you will and create a vlog while dying my lacrosse head.
Dying a lacrosse head is a fairly simple process, but is time consuming, and if you mess it up there’s no going back. For both of those reasons I never had the courage to try it, but with my final year of lacrosse coming up I figured there was no better time than now to do it. The process of dying a lacrosse head is you cover up what parts you want to stay white, and then put it in boiling water with a special kind of dye. I found that the process wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, but it did cause a pretty big mess.
Vlogging is someone that has become popular within the last couple of years with the growth of people using it on Youtube, and celebrities/ athletes starting to create vlogs of their own. I use Youtube a lot and I watch a lot of people who vlog on it. My favorite kind of vlogs are when athletes take the viewers behind the scenes and show you what is like to be a professional athlete.
Overall, I thought that this assignment was both fun and a challenge. It was two different things that I had never done before and were not easy to do. If I could change anything about dying the lacrosse head it would to be to take my time and pay more attention to detail. If I could do something to improve my vlog would be a better camera, and microphone. I used my Iphone which took good videos but did not capture the sound in the way that I wanted it to.
