SXSWedu was such a great experience for me both this year and last year. Unlike last year though, I will not be attending SXSW interactive or film (or music). I am very bummed out about not being able to go to that part of SXSW but I know I can’t do everything every year though, I might be able to go next year. SXSWedu was great because I met so many people and I learned so much and I actually got to talk in a panel.

I met Matt Goldman who is part of the Blueman group and he talked about the Blue School in New York and how they are going to have a Blue School Summer Camp for elementary school students. Even though the summer camp is for younger kids he said that it might be possible for me to help teach and mentor kids in the camp which would be very exciting. He also came to watch my panel.

That is just a very, very small part of SXSWedu and I promise once I get caught up with homework I will update you more. (so many promises, sorry)


Bye for now,

Hi every body!

I am so sorry for the last post because I said that I would be on my other blog but I can’t do that anymore because it locked me out. Again sorry.

I have been having such a good time though here at SXSWedu. Right now I am listening to a talk about using games and play for learning. It is really good but I am super tired and the only thing keeping me awake right now is the bright light coming out of my iPad.

Yesterday I went to the Future Plans: College and Career thing here and there were some really good colleges. I found out about a few art colleges such as FIDM and some other ones that I forgot the names of. The most ironic thing about it though was that afterwards my dad and I went to a panel called “College vs. Uncollege: Is a degree worth it?” It was a very good panel and now I am pondering going to college at all. What do you guys think? Say it in the comments below.

That just totally sounded like something a youtuber would say. Sorry.


I’m in Austin

Hey everybody!

I don’t know if you know this but I’m in Austin now and I have been here since the 1st I just wanted to let you know that for SXSW I will be posting here because it is my SXSWblog. I don’t have access to video editing software so when I get home I will upload a video because I am filming a little bit each day.

Just thought I’d let you know!

Hey guys!

Just so you know I am still alive but I am getting nervous. I am so excited to be going to SXSW. I’ll be leaving on Friday. And that is pretty much all I can think of right now.

I will be posting a something really cool really soon but I thought that I would just notify you guys that everything is going well.

Hey everybody!

I haven’t posted here in a while.

I have been posting on my lizzy smith blog ( and editing photos and going on about life.


I am going to see if i can convince my dad to let me show my face on the internet and i will justify it by all of the instances where you can google search my name and my picture will (granted) pop up. I want to make a blog type thing and be able to show my face.

Well bye for now!

I am going to make this short because it deleted on me the first time writing this…


So basically I have been busy with life and I made a video the won the 4-H state wide film festival. There are 5 long seconds of black at the beginning so don’t worry.

ND 4-H Film Festival: Follow my Feet


I hope you all like the video!!!



P.S. I will be starting a photography blog with my friends soon so I will be posting the link as soon as possible.



All Right

So I haven’t been on here for a while now but it is because I have a new blog that is just for fun/daily life. If want to view it, click here. (i also have a SXSW blog, here)


So I’ve come back here to say “hey” to anybody who actually reads this blog– and if anyone does, please say so in a comment below. I’ve also come back because SXSWpanelpicker and SXSWeduPanelpicker are open. I got a proposal to enter an entry to SXSWedu by Ron Reed (the Executive Producer). So I think I will try entering something and I hope I get picked.


Wish me luck!
