I came to the library a little while ago (I have my first two real exams next week…a week before terms actually starts but I’m not salty, ofc not) and had a sudden burst of energy lol. I have no one to share it with which reminded me that I haven’t updated my blog in a while.
I posted a new video today, here’s a link:
This and my last video (capturing my 22nd birthday celebrations) were not initially intended to be posted online. I wanted to film random clips for myself as mini ‘home videos’ but then I felt like they might be cute to share online. Tbh, I’ve had so many photos/videos get deleted in the past (most likely my prized possessions) that posting these online seems like the best form of Cloud storage :p
The other day my friend was commending me on how I’ve been ‘putting in work’ on my blog from day 1. They spoke about how I’d been compiling blogposts by conducting research, talking about topics that aren’t widely spoken about, and practising extended writing without a proper incentive. It was sweet. However it reminded me of something I had thought of a while back. Some of my recent few (very few actually) posts have mainly been reshares of videos from my new YouTube channel and not the type of content based posts I used to write. I felt a bit guilty about it, but honestly I’ve been too busy to write blogposts I’d be satisfied with. I have been putting quite some effort into YouTube however. I realised I really enjoy the video stuff. Infact it only hit me kind of recently.
Photos and videos are one of my biggest hobbies. I like them a lot. Taking them, being in them, editing them etc. One of my old methods of procrastination was to look through old photos/videos in my laptop (my old laptop that has since died, rip). I would sometimes come across old videos I made as a child, but I only recently reflected on this and realised…hold up…I’ve been making videos for since I was little…I must enjoy this!😂🤦🏽♂️
My YouTube channel was initially created for the main purpose of advertising my University course, Chinese Studies with Korean. I began this when I was taking part in Oxvlog but never got to finish my goal. Once I had finished most of the course related content I had set out to produce on my channel, I began making videos more for my own fun. I’m not too bothered with the amount of views those videos get so long as I still have fun making them. Sounds very 2009 I know 🤷♀️😂. I think my channel has a few different genre of videos; Informational/course related, Awareness/activism, Reaction videos, Conceptual videos for stress relief, Random things for fun. If you have seen any of my videos, what is your fave type?
I feel like I could write a book right now but I gotta get back to work. Btw, no one dare to ask me ‘what Masters’ I’ll be doing after I finish this degree. I hate education now and I’m done :)) Good night xx
If you post a random video online,
good luck 世界,
