For #VEDA, today’s video was supposed to be bloopers of the videos we’ve posted this month, but I decided to do a mostly candid video I decided not to post for Aug 23. Instead for day 23, I posted a to-the-point video, rather than this giggly mess above. :]
Look, I’m a realist so I understand the need to vent about the problematic moments of life, but I also realize the good things in life and that bad times are just momentary and don’t last. “The shadow proves the sunshine.” In whatever I post online, whether it be Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, whatever, I usually give the positive when I give the negative.
It’s good to be mindful of the energy you’re putting out.
In junior high, the countrytown small school I went to had a “Gifted and Talented” class, where they pick a select group of students and give them more homework to make them feel special. Needless I
demanded wanted that extra bit of homework, and I felt I deserved the distinguished title of “Gifted and Talented.” My school never agreed with me, and I went through times where I felt like I wasn’t gifted nor talented. But then I graduated high school as “Most Talented” and “Most Likely to Succeed.”
Eff junior high.
Staycaying at the Adolphus Hotel over the weekend was amazing. I felt very posh and pampered… without adult diapers involved. I was a big fan of the upload speed, which made catching up on vlogging awesome. I also got my computer back, which felt great.
But unfortunately Apple didn’t return my original hard drive, so I may have lost all of my files: work, projects, photos, videos, etc. Thanks to the kickass wifi I was able to begin restoring my computer to an even better glory, save for my files, of course.
In fact, the fresh start invigorated me. I wanted to work on new work. And the first personal memories on it are a file folder with one screenshot in it of someone I really like and care about.
Here’s to a new beginning.
