Happy Wednesday everyone!
I’ve been up all night editing my new YouTube video. I’m really pushing myself outside my comfort zone with all this content creation I’ve been working on 😰
I’ve also been cooking up some other event planning ideas. I haven’t forgotten about all my naturalistas in the Bay Area! We will still be turning up.
My Wednesday night group therapy class on anxiety is going well. So far I’ve been learning what it means to have anxiety, the different causes, and ways to lessen anxiety. I’ll dedicate a whole blog post and maybe even a YouTube video to what I’ve learned after I complete the 6 week series.
In other news this past week has given me a new found respect for YouTubers! First, I had the most stressful encounter with the post office when it came to delivering my packages. Last week I bought a studio backdrop and lighting on Amazon. The post office held my packages for 2 days because no one was at my house during delivery. Even after I sat on the phone for 2 hours to arrange a pickup. The post office is literally across the street from my house. Friday when I went to pick up they tried to hold the packages for a third day saying the courier took them out for delivery 😑 AGAIN! Why would my packages be out for delivery when you’ve tried to deliver to my house twice this is why I arranged to pick them up!!! After giving the supervisor a piece of my mind the courier drove back to the office to hand deliver my packages.
My favorite part is after going home and setting up all my equipment I discovered that a light bulb from one of my soft boxes doesn’t work. After going to Home Depot to search for the bulb, I learned the special bulb isn’t sold in stores and pretty expensive to buy separately. So I called Amazon to ask if they could send a replacement and instead they sent me a second ring light. 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 I now have to send my soft boxes back and reorder them in order to replace ONE LIGHT BULB! So I have 2 ring lights and no soft boxes. Just great!!!! Lol
I decided to braid my hair this weekend and wanted to try doing a Youtube tutorial. Let me just say Youtube is harder than it looks. Sitting in front of all those lights and recording myself was so weird! I felt like I was talking to myself the whole time and I was so awkward on camera. Needless to say, I need more practice.
I’m expanding my horizons y’all. Just how it took me a while to get the hang of writing blogs, it will definitely take me a while to get into making and editing YouTube videos. Lucky you guys get to have front row seats in witnessing my growth!
