Hello lovelies! So for awhile now I’ve been contemplating whether or not I wanted to start my own YouTube channel, since I really enjoy watching others’ channels and I feel like it’s a great way to connect with an even greater audience. And after a lot of thought I finally convinced myself that I would get out of my comfort zone and give it a shot!
I know it might sound silly, but this is actually a pretty bold move for me, considering for my whole life I have always been very uncomfortable watching myself on film. Whenever I was in school and we had to make a video for a project, I would always ask to leave the room because I would be drowning with so much embarrassment for myself that I actually couldn’t stand to sit in the room and witness everyone’s reactions as they watched whatever it was I was doing. Recently however, after watching so many of my favorite YouTubers overcome their own insecurities, I decided that regardless of how hard it was going to be, I was going to overcome my self-doubts and put myself out there just for my own sake so I can say that I did it. And while everything inside me still wants to criticize all the little details of the video: my voice, what I said and how I said it, silly faces I made, how I was sitting, etc. (the list goes on and on) I decided I was just accept it as it was and be proud that it is done.
So even though it wasn’t shot with the greatest equipment or in perfect lighting, and it’s probably very obvious that I was really nervous, I’m happy to say that for those of you who would like to watch it, my first ever video is up on YouTube! Eek!
Thus, if any of you guys would like to see what I picked up while shopping at the Mall of America, then go check out my new video here! (Especially because there won’t be a blog post about it all as I couldn’t figure out a good way to take nice pictures of everything to share it on here.)
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read my blog regardless, I appreciate having my small corner of the internet to share little tidbits of my life with everyone! xxx
