TikTok is hard, y’all

As part of my ongoing effort of documenting the human emotion, I’ve created a TikTok account. Mostly I use it to share yo-yo videos like this:

Though I still prefer using Youtube as a way of sharing tutorials and interviews, and Instagram as a place to share short trick videos, I’ve found TikTok is a neat place to explore something between the two. Something with a bit more substance than a straight forward trick video, but not quite intended as a long experience. It’s inspired me to share a series of Quick Tips videos like this:

It’s also a fun place to explore memes, narrative concetpts, and jokes in a way that doesn’t quite make sense on IG.
