While I’m waiting for this video to finish exporting, I’m going to spill some thoughts that have been on my mind lately:
So, aside from worrying about the evergrowing list of comebacks, I’ve been putting off this one “thing” that I tasked myself to take care of and see it through to fruition before this year ends. A few of my friends know what it is, but I’m not quite ready to tell the whole world yet. Not that the world really needs to know. But that time will come when it will be known what this “task” is.
I’m also worried about if I’ll be able to carry this YouTube thing on my own. I told one of my coworkers that I took on a hobby of doing this YouTube thing again after taking a break. It’s definitely becoming a hobby, and I love the fact that I can say I am doing some personal and fun projects outside of work. Although after this recent project, it’s driving me insane and into sleeplessness. Hopefully after I keep at it and get back into the groove, it’ll be something that I can devote extra time to. I’m just afraid that with the “thing” I mentioned previously that I’m doing won’t change how I feel about doing these kinds of projects.
Other concerns that are on my plate right now involve the sad news of my youth group coming to a close because of the lack of members we have. It is an organization that I’ve been involved with for 9 years, and it was heartbreaking to see it go down the way that it did. I’ve got some final duties that I need to take care of with regards to the closing my chapter of this organization. I wasn’t ready to let it go, so there were some trinkets and things that I took home with me after cleaning out our usual meeting establishment. I’ve got loads of old pictures to look at, reminisce and create a scrapbook with. I also have figures and awards that I need to go through, and then figure out what I’m going to do with them.
For the past several months, I’ve been trying to take in this concept of minimalism… with my room, my belongings, and my thought process at work. As usual, I’m always trying to get rid some stuff that I don’t use anymore. But by “thought process”, I mean that “less is more” concept when it comes to my correspondences with my clients – my emails can get lengthy and I always tend to write novels, and that’s only because I treat my clients like they know nothing about building websites (which some don’t). Each time a new problem arises with a client, which happens frequently, I have to write manuals explaining why something doesn’t work this way or that way (a.k.a. why they are stupid), and then end it with a potential solution to their problem, which is usually because of user error. It never ends, and there’s never a simple answer to these things. I definitely had one of those moments today at work where I wish we met our clients in person sometimes so that I could strangle them for being so dumb.
Well, it’s another day tomorrow. And my video is still not done exporting. What the fu#&$@R%&*G#YI.
So I filmed the “talking” portion of the video last night. I have about an hour of footage to go through and edit, and then about 500 or so videos and photos to pick and choose from to use in the video…
To preface the amount of videos and photos I have from KCON, I originally thought I had about 400 (HA! I don’t think there’s a difference) and that is because I came unprepared and didn’t think to make space on my phone (prior to leaving for Newark) for the damage I did on the first day. So I, sadly, had to delete what I took on Friday so that I could have some footage for Saturday because more of the groups that I wanted to see were performing on Saturday.
BUT… I just found out how I can retrieve what I deleted last night. Did you know… that the Samsung Note5 has a Trash folder that keeps files in there for up to 15 days? I didn’t know… and I am so happy! Time to restore everything!
It is a Friday, so I am hoping that my job lets us out early again so that I can get right back to work on the video.
In the meantime, take a look at the teaser video I uploaded a few days ago.
I am also hoping to get to a few reactions to new music videos that came out, like Bang Yongguk’s Yamazaki, BTS’s remake of Seo Taiji’s Come Back Home, DAY6’s Hi Hello, and EXO-M Xiumin & NCT Mark’s Young & Free.
This is actually a counterproductive post about other social media platforms that I am on. I just wanted to provide an update and let the rest of the Internet know that I am back on Vingle and K-Pop Amino.
It is officially the second half of the year 2017, and I am just now getting this site up and doing something with it.
I was initially using this site to test and play around plugins for my job, but my original intent was to actually use this site as my outlet to vent to world and pour out my fangirl thoughts. So here I am, making proper use of it now. It also took me a while to find a look and layout…
There are some thoughts that I will and will not share with the world, so think of this as an extension to some of the tweets that limit my thoughts to 140 characters. Hahaha!
One of the first things that I thought about when I started this back up again was, “How should I document my second KCON experience? Vlog? Just post pictures and videos on Instagram?” I’m still not sure, but I have to think of something fast.
I want to make use of my very novice video editing skills and upload to YouTube. But that will probably come after I type about it, because this is more convenient for me.
I will document about KCON 2017 New York in another post shortly. I need to sort out my thoughts on other things first…
Also, because it’s July… I felt it was almost necessary to add this video. Enjoy!
