"Ramblings of a mostly-socialized homeschooler, short vignettes concerning the weirdness of the world we live in, and more than the occasional dash of randomness." - From the 'About' section of this totally awesome (somewhat random, I guess) YouTube Channel, Broken Lens Productions
I have recently discovered this wonderful, funny YouTube channel: Broken Lens Productions. Run by Braden Russell - a Christian, homeschool graduate, writer, musician, and the guy behind all those hilarious videos on the aforementioned YouTube channel. They are clean, laugh-out-loud funny videos that are there simply to make you smile. Some of the videos are based on things like: the dangers of homeschooling, how hugs are awkward, how to find (and give) the perfect Valentines Day gift to that fiancé, wife, mother, sister, etc. in your life, and a bunch of other odds and ends that will have you cracking up laughing in no time. Seriously...just wait and see (or is that 'watch and see'?)...
Braden Russell also has a blog - The Storymonger - where he gives advice on writing based on his own experiences. He is actually in the middle of Camp NaNoWriMo... (National Novel Writing Month is known affectionately as NaNoWriMo - one month every year where people around America attempt the challenge of writing a big, fat novel in the space of thirty days. I believe they can also set goals for themselves instead of completing the whole thing (such as: 30,000 words). Yes, it has been done...by more than one person...). I applaud Braden for tackling such a feat - it's something that I hope to accomplish in the not-too-distant future. :)
Back to Broken Lens...
This channel is absolutely fantastic - I'm a fan. Here are some of my favorite videos:
