Sometimes it happens that I compare my work to others’. Don’t you?
And sometimes it makes me see my work like something which isn’t even worth to be called ‘work’, you know what I mean?
That’s what happened when I watched my previous and old videos (out of boredom) on YouTube… I suddenly found so many flaws in every vlog and I wasn’t even proud of any of them anymore.
My oral English skills aren’t even that good, are they? I’m such a bad actress, ain’t I? No drama/performing arts club would ever accept me, right?
However, instead of being down and angry, I was immediately motivated to do better videos next time. And when I mean ‘immediately’… I meant that I put down an idea on paper right away and acted it out the very next day… I mean, morning.
And here’s the video:
Yeah, tip: if you’re out of ideas, make something about being out of ideas; if you’re being overwhelmed by your inner critic, yeah make something about that! 😉
Frankly, I never thought I would have been that person one day; I never thought that seeing what I do as being ‘bad’ would push me to work harder and make a better job the next time. I always thought I was the kind who would end up being depressed and discouraged… well, maybe I was like that before, I can’t remember.
But the most important thing is that I’m not now. I’m stronger.
Although I didn’t share my recent videos lately in recent posts, I’ve been keeping on vlogging and I’ve kept on updating my Vlogging Channel blog page 🙂 So keep checking on the page or simply subscribe on YouTube!
Hey everyone! If you’ve been following my recent posts, you might notice how I’ve been much into photography lately… and more active in the blogosphere as well! However, on the other hand, I’ve also started to vlog again, posting videos more regularly – every Friday – and since I’m currently in that stage between high school and university, I’d like to cover this very subject as a video project to keep me going.
I already know what university I’m going to attend in July – soon! – and my place is already booked and all so I guess that I will soon be doing ‘packing’ videos and such stuff, but I’d also like to do Q&A videos.
And I’d like the questions to come from you guys.
As me anything in the comments below, everything you want to know about going to university, especially if you’re a student applying yourself this year. Even if you’re not a student, just tell me whatever information you would like to know about this high school to university process.
I know it may not seem much to many people but for me it is a great deal. I’m really touched that a 100 of you have decided to stay by my side on my video blogging journey. And I hope to see more of you as I continue on my adventure!
And such a coincidence: I just did my channel trailer, which officially describes my channel… as a channel!
Today I dreamt I had to sit for an exams… although I felt in holidays… so I had to learn poems. Not exactly related to the subject of this post but… it was scary!
Well maybe it is slightly related as the ‘right decision’ for me at the moment is all about education! After all, I just finished my A-levels and now I have to decide which course I want to study and which university I’d like to apply to.
For an 18 year old like me, these decisions are scary… since they feel to be life changing! Especially that I know I’m so whimsical concerning my future! I’ve always had many dreams, including the one of becoming a bestselling author which never fades away…
I hope it doesn’t make you cry, although if you did cry it means I did a great job 🙂
Anyway, this is basically some reflections on my life situation, where I’ve recently realised that I wanted to pursue art as a career while writing will remain my favourite hobby. And it’s also about my struggle to be accepted as an art student, since many do not agree with my decision, many don’t believe in me, many think that I’ll just end up in the streets instead of having a stable job.
But I don’t believe that. I believe in me. I know I can do this.
I know it’s so sudden and since I didn’t do Art & Design at school I have to do it privately and sit for its A-level next year, thus I’ll still be studying next year instead of going to university.
It’s a risk, I know, but I’m ready to take it. It’s all about follow my dreams and listening to my heart because only my heart knows what makes me happy.
And art does.
That’s the advice I want to give you: it’s okay to be scared, but you should go forward along your heart’s desires anyway.
One more week and my exams will finally be over. ONE WEEK! Well, they end on Thursday. Anyway, I wasn’t supposed to do anything like blogging or YouTubing… but I couldn’t help it. I was much active on Twitter especially.
And I bought art stuff!
Yes, I’m definitely guilty!
Then, yesterday I did the thing that a student in exams period should put last in their to-do list and that is… I did a video. Well I filmed one with the help of my little sister, and now it’s up on YouTube!
I guess it would be inhuman to be able to remain buried in school books 24/24.
That doesn’t mean that I’m quitting blogging. In fact, I might start to publish posts more frequently, but slowly at first, maybe one or two posts per week, including guest posts. If I don’t, it means I’m revising for exams!
