Karl talks about a problem he had at college last year and the life lesson he learned from dealing with it.

Karl Meyer

I am 21 years old and have been attending Montgomery College for two years now with one year left to go before I transfer to the University of Maryland, College Park. I’ve lived in the Rockville area for 7 years and before that, another 7 years St. Louis Park, Minnesota. Before that I lived in Austria and Australia, the place of my birth.

My major is Information Systems. It used to be Computer Science, but it turned out I’m awful at math, so I switched over to something still in the general field of computing and less math intensive.

I’ve been interested in the production of entertainment as a hobby for going on 8 years now. During this time, I’ve learned a lot about what exactly I want to do in this medium. Now, after all this time observing, I can finally put everything I’ve learned to work to create some really great content for you. I hope you join me and have as much fun watching my content as I did making it.

  1. Karl, first I must ask what spot you were in because it is gorgeous! I think what you said comes down to this: Too many people are too easily discouraged way too quickly and would have thought the F was a signal to drop the class or writing was not for them. Great that you met the challenge head on and what you did – talk to the professor before making an impulsive decision – was a smart thing to do. There are the rare occasions as once happened to me in a statistics class, that I knew it was professor/student incompatibility. I decided to take the class with a different prof, and I ended up with an A. The idea is to not let the problem drag too long before dealing with it. You get an A for crossing that log!

    1. I’m glad I was able to convey that successfully and I hope that others will interpret it the same you did. It’s fall, my favorite time of year. The forest out the back of my house was screaming at me to come take a look and it was too beautiful not to shoot so I took the opportunity to make what is my favorite video so far. Thanks for the comment and thoughtful interpretation.
