Reclaiming Your Power (and Captions)

It appears that the simplest way to add TikTok videos to the website is to simply attach them to posts. With that in mind, here are some I did quite awhile back, two on reclaiming your power and one an update on captions on TikTok.

This is an update to my post about going captionless. In the time since this post and the one preceding it, I’ve listened to a lot of people with a stake in the issue. Also, TikTok has made adding captions trivially easy, so going forward from about April, most of my videos include the native CC.

Reclaiming your power is tough. After you have gotten used to the idea that others have power over you, changing that is difficult and necessary. It’s also part of becoming a happier, healthier person.

More on reclaiming your power and the benefits and costs of doing so. This involves believing and thinking things that we choose. Sometimes before we even act on those beliefs.

Go to TikTok to see more of my short videos, YouTube for a combination of short and longer videos, or Twitch to join me as I game and talk about mental health, human rights, and basic civics. To support my work, please sign up for my Patreon or tip at Paypal. While you’re here at Jenni’s Space, check out my constantly growing list of resources.

I am always interested in feedback about what you would like to see more of here. As I build this site into a resource for people, I want people to let me know what they find most useful.
