It begins with me attempting to post an update on the sock I’m knitting. Next, I am interrupted by the cat who wants to do that “check my organs” move before settling into a tight ball. Finally I decide it would be easier to make a video rather than write.
The following took four takes and the following is the most satisfying.
Filming myself is difficult. Even though I’m learning vocal variety and voice control with Toastmasters, I still think I sound like a tea kettle. Watching myself on video is also difficult. I feel awkward and of course I think I look fat.
I considered scrapping the whole thing but I had already voluntold The PreTeen to be the camera person (why it’s so dang shaky) and I had some ideas about how I wanted to stage the video. Despite the rawness, I think we made a decent post.
