week 172

Happy New Year, everyone. Hope everyone had an amazing end to their year whether the year brought shite after shite, or it brought much needed awesomeness.

I didn’t get much done last week, although I assumed there would be plenty of time. Just got super lazy and consumed my weight in sweets.

Got a bit of knitting done, but not much.

I was extremely impatient last week.

random stones, a claddaugh, coin and string

I did venture out on New Year’s day, instead of holing up in the house and doing nothing, like every single year. My cousin, Joelle, gave the stones to me, and most of these will be turned into either bracelets or another necklace.

I wanted to see fireworks but it was raining all day, into overnight.

Instead, for my own amusement, I ended up live vlogging on YouTube it turning into 2017. I made the mistake of downloading the encoder ten minutes before  I promised to be on. Instead of actually having it on my laptop already and knowing how to use it proper.

It was a disaster and not well planned out, even though I’m the type to try to plan everything out when it comes to creative endeavours. Even though, a lot of times things happen so it never goes exactly as planned. Basically, if you go to my channel, I didn’t figure out you have to adjust the screen, in the first clip, but somewhere in there I popped the only popper at midnight. The second clip is just me drinking and talking. I was starting to get buzzed, because I’m a lightweight, and stopped drinking after I ended the feed. I was already awkward and got bored, because only one person would view it at times. At the end, I turned on music on my phone and not so seriously started singing along with Sara Bareilles’s Gravity. I haven’t watched them otherwise I will start cringing at my awkwardness. Most of it was me making faces at my laptop camera.

Have I made any resolutions? Not really. I do hope this year brings me such good things that I’m gleefully smiling on New Year’s Eve of 2018. Hope that happens to everyone. Also, it would be nice to kiss someone on New Year’s Eve again.

week 169-170

Who has two thumbs and badly maintaining their weekly blog? ME. I’m pretty awesome at procrastinating.

So…what have I been doing in the meantime?

I made a terrible painting.

blue painting with beads and stuff

This was an experiment in how much stuff can I add. There is a layer of paint, then put perfume (I used up a lot of the Stella rollerball perfume I had sitting about), then two markers, embroidery, beads and more marker.

I thought the perfume would have completely disappeared by now but if you’re standing near it, you can still smell it. I’ve always liked the idea of impermanence, of how everything is transient.

What else have I done?

I’ve started vlogging on YouTube purely to amuse myself. I’m purposely making them boring for now while I’m getting used to having a camera in my face.¬† So far I’ve been using my iPhone6s, which is only 16mb, to record stuff but I like having a limited amount of time to talk about nothing. I don’t expect to become a famous YouTube star because I don’t have a niche and expect to be one of those channels no one knows about.

This is my YouTube profile:

I tend to film on Sunday which is why I look like a hobo that never changes their clothes.

There is a project I started.

Originally, I met this guy but we’ve had a falling out since then, but we were planning to come out with a webseries and have been in the planning stages of it for a bit. I still want to do it and it could be easier getting it done without him but he’ll still be credited with the idea. It won’t be kid friendly as there are a few scenes I’ve told friends about and one of them promised to make sure one scene I have concocted in my head, to make it go viral. I can’t halfarse it and want to make something my friends would watch, make them laugh and make them proud of me.

I have so many plans for 2017, but not sure how many will actually be accomplished.
