Blogging, writing, YouTube(?)-ing are all very solo activities.
YouTubers have learned to branch out and form collaborations with each other, torturously forcing themselves to change out of their week-old pj’s and suffering through conversation with a warm-skinned, breathing human.
But! They found a solution! A way to collaborate without ever having to be in the same room: the _____ Does My Voiceover tag.
Which, in essence, is kinda sad because Mechanical Ninjineer is a really cool person and may even be my twin, so having real-life conversation with that certain human wouldn’t have been so bad.
What a crazy, long, and emotionally exhausting weekend I had! But I am forever blessed to spend it, winding down with my best friend Amy.
We had candy cane tea and girl talks, with a touch of violence thrown in—so a typical sleepover all around.
There are a lot of characters in my church. Freezing temperatures seem to only magnify the essence of our personalities.
Come along with us as we go caroling at a convalescent home and various houses in sub-zero California temperatures.
Watch the master storyteller at work as I tell story after story of being a short girl and a coffee lover.
I also share my Mac lipstick collection. Just for fun.
It may be January 9th, but the Christmas spirit lives on here on my blog!
Who remembers Vlogmas 18? Raise of hands?
In Vlogmas 18, I filmed my first collab with my friend, Joey. We went out shopping for candy canes. We set up. We hid behind the front door when a solicitor knocked. We got hyped up on candy. I was supposed to be on a diet. So, naturally, I ate most of it.
I’m afraid I got swept up in the holiday festivities, the last days of Vlogmas.
However, I’m not one to leave something halfway—unless we’re talking about cleaning my room, which we’re not.
So, without further ado, here are the last days of Vlogmas; the days you’ve all been waiting for: Christmas Eve and Christmas day.
It isn’t until you start making YouTube videos that you, 1) Find out how many of your friends binge watch YouTube on Friday nights, and 2) Which of your friends has dabbled, making videos of their own.
Meet Joey, a fellow YouTube dabbler.
Happy Vlogmas #3, dear friends!
It has become clear that Vlogmas, along with a substantial blog post for Blogmas, has become too great of an endeavor.
There are only 24 hours in a day, and I will not admit how long it takes me to edit these videos.
You can’t make me talk.
A few blog posts ago, I wrote about being a college stayer, though I fear that that post came off too “woe is me.” The reality is I don’t know what I’m going to do with my life. But I’m not sitting around, pitying myself day after day or anything of the sort. I didn’t want it to come off that way.
Today, you may pity me. Pity away. Because today (well, yesterday) I lost my best friend.
“You make it sound like I’m dying,” he told me and my friend.
“You’re gonna be dead to us,” she joked.
This is true. Though I am very much aware that the dead are incapable of shooting me a “I’m making friends!” text, when you see someone on an almost daily basis because they lived a few streets down from you and then suddenly can’t see them for three months. Instant. They’re gone. Only memories remain. It’s quite similar to death.
