I’m back at work now, so my hobbies have slowed down a bit. I’m still collecting the materials I need to make my journal look good. Although I have made a start, I feel like I want to start again and make it better. I’ve also started a YouTube channel and posted my first video which you can watch here:
I’m still learning so much about these things and I guess it will take some time before I get as good as some of those very popular You Tubers, but for my first video, which was filmed on my phone, I’m quite pleased.
It’s also a big deal for me to do anything such as speaking on videos because I have a speech impediment. I’m hoping it will help me with my confidence too. At work, I’m doing an apprenticeship and I’m going to have to do presentations and record myself talking which scares the life out of me, especially in front of people who I’m not too familiar with. So this will help me practise in that are and overcome my worst fears.
Already, having uploaded my first video has given me a great boost of confidence and I’m already looking forward to my next video.
Today I caught a bus into town. It was Sunday, so as usual, all the stores close early, but I was able to get most of everything I needed. I’m having some trouble finding everything that I need. Stamps for instance. The rubber ones to make decorations with. They aren’t as cheap as I hoped and the ones I’ve looked at I’m not even sure I like. I’m also waiting on stuff I ordered from Amazon and Ebay. I have no idea when its due. Could be today, then again it might not even get here until Wednesday or Friday.
I’ve found I’m slightly impatient waiting for things I want to use!
So far I have created two signatures (inserts) and two pages. I can’t wait to do more. Although I really need to get some more scrap paper.
When I have done a bit more, I’ll take a photo to show how much progress I’ve made.
On other news, the new episode of Orphan Black is out. I went to try and watch it this morning but was far too distracted. I’ve got loads I want to do, and yet feel I haven’t got much time in which to do it. A week can go awfully fast when you’re having fun.
I still need to catch up and do some writing later today when I get a chance. Right now I am just too darn tired to think. Gonna sign off and grab some sleep.
