Blind date: Two juniors hope to strike love

In honor of Valentine’s Day, the journalism staff surprised two singletons, junior Damon Grim and junior Amanda Kerr with a romantic date in hope for love to spark.

On a crisp January night, Grimm and Kerr met at what the Journalism staff thought was the most romantic place: Big Al’s.

Grim decided to go for the classy serious look with a full suit, whereas Kerr opted for the casual and comfy look with sweats and sweater. 

“I like to impress a girl with how I dress,” Grim said. “I mean, do you think they are going to be impressed if I wore some sweatpants? I don’t know who would ever wear that on a date.”

This caused an early awkwardness, but the journalism staff moved them quickly to bowling to ease the tensions.

“It wasn’t really a competition, but bowling was super fun,” Grim said. “I got to show off my athletic skills.”

After an intense game of bowling, the two were hungry for dinner. With the beautiful tones of bowlers and children, it was clear the date was heating up. 

With mozzarella sticks and cheesy fries across the table, the date took a serious turn, where they talked about their interests.

“We have a lot in common through our accomplished athletic careers,” Kerr said. “I love to ski every weekend and Damon is a varsity track star.”

After their romantic dim lit dinner, both Grim and Kerr looked upstairs and found lots of arcade games.

With Grim blushing cheek to cheek, he took Kerr to play his favorite game: Dance Dance Revolution.

Showing off their dance moves, their undeniable chemistry became evident.

After the few more arcade games, the date was dying down, so the journalism staff decided to sit Grim down and ask how the overall date went.

“So I think the date overall went pretty well,” Grim said. “I think in the beginning it was definitely a little awkward, but I mean when it works, it works.”

With Grim’s confidence of it being an incredible date, this begs the question: What will happen next?

“It was a little awkward in the beginning but I think towards the end, during the dance dance revolution, we really clicked,” Kerr said. “I would for sure go on another date with him.”

Only time will tell if these love birds decide to soar, but as of now, I think we can all agree they we totally ship Damanda.

Avery Douglas: her life through vlogs

A snapshot of Avery Douglas' Youtube channel featuring a vlog of her family vacation.

Junior Avery Douglas creates Youtube videos, documenting fun aspects of her life through vlogs.

Prior to starting her Youtube channel the summer before sixth grade, Douglas would film videos on Video Star, an app used to easily create music videos.

“I would make Video Stars and post [them], and then that spurred my channel,” Douglas said. “I would make them at sleepovers with all of my friends, so I made them when I moved here.”

Living in Minnesota prior to the start of her channel, Douglas used Youtube when she moved to Oregon to connect with others and pass the time. Her channel has evolved since starting it, shifting from music videos with friends to vlogs documenting her everyday life. 

“I tried to do the whole hauls and beauty guru stuff, but I stopped with that because I [thought] that’s not me,” Douglas said. “Now I do mostly vlogs because I like to keep the memories and post them for my friends [to] look back on. So I like to do a lot of vlogs and montages, add music to it, and play around with not special effects, but different types of… ‘artsy’ editing because I love looking back on [them].”

Along with changing the content of her channel, Douglas has improved her editing skills and aptitude for filmmaking, upgrading her quality of equipment and tools.

“I taught myself how to edit, or I would go on Youtube and learn different tricks,” Douglas said. “I started off on iMovie, [but] you can’t do a ton with it, [so] I would learn how to use what I had. I finally saved up and got Final Cut Pro, and you can definitely do a lot more with that.”utside of Youtube and school, Douglas is extremely passionate about dance, as she is a part of a close-knit dance team for Elite Dance Studio. Many of her videos consist of her friends from Elite Dance, focusing on dance-related events like practices and recitals. With school, dance, and Youtube, Douglas struggles to find a balance.

“It’s definitely a lot,” Douglas said. “Second semester I’ve been a lot better at managing my time; before I wasn’t. So [I] try to get my homework done and whatever extra time I [have] I try to edit…If I don’t have the time to post a video, I won’t push myself to do it.”

Douglas also features her friends from Jesuit in her videos, making sure to document fun, school-related events to look back on. Junior Taryn Collier-Burke appears in a number of Douglas’ videos and has known about her channel since freshman year.

“I try to be in them whenever I’m with Avery,” Collier-Burke said. “I’m in them usually just whenever we hang out or when something’s going on like homecoming or Afua’s surprise birthday.”

With Douglas’ channel growing in size, nearing 2,000 subscribers, Collier-Burke is surprised to see herself on a large, growing platform. However, she still enjoys being featured in the videos to look back on in the future. 

“I think it’s funny because I can see myself on Youtube,” Collier-Burke said. “And she’s really good at editing. So when we went to Bend for my birthday, it [was] kind of nice because we can look back on it when we’re older and watch the highlights of that trip.”
