Life can change in seconds, hours, or on a single day. My life changed again on July 24th, 2010, which just happened to be the day of the "Life in a Day" film project. I found out about the project early that morning, almost last minute in my mind. I live in NYC, but was in North Carolina visiting my ex boyfriend, who I truly thought wanted to build a real friendship after two years of not speaking to each other. There are just some people you don't want to lose out of your life, and he was one of those people. But you can't hold on to someone who isn't holding on to you. It was heartbreaking to realize that for whatever reason, he couldn't - or wouldn't - act as a real friend, and in that realization I knew that I could no longer let him be in my life. Knowing that I would have to say goodbye to him once again, was heartbreaking, even though I knew it was for the best. And that realization only added fuel to the fire of my deepest fear of being insignificant, irrelevant, and ultimately unloved. Yet despite the sadness of that day, and the days after it, and despite that fear I'll always have to stare down, I do find joy and laughter in the smallest things, especially in the innocence of children, who still believe that the world is a magical place.

Major feelings: Thinking, Talking, Crying, Sadness, Laughter

Sad example is available to illustrate how youtube partner (partners are those who make money by displaying Google AdSense ads on their videos and youtube pages), is gambling with video titles, tags and video description, so search engines deliver faked results and therefore push away Life in a Day videos by ordinary Youtubers out of reach by a loyal web surfer. See this post for details.

Get wild with your creativity! As of August 14, 2010 in response on youtubers request mission expanded. You now can share here not only the film of raw footage that you uploaded to Youtube by 31 July 2010, but also new edited videos filmed on July 24. While both are required and will be linked to each other, we suggest you share your raw footage film now and have edited film shared whenever you have it.

We also welcome those youtubers, who had very special 24-25 July 2010 weekend (such as wedding, honeymoon or anything else of exceptional personal value), to include July 25 videos in their "Life in a Day" film as well.
