Today, I will share with you a secret…
I have a video. On the internet. Because I uploaded one.
I’ve always dreamed of having my own YouTube channel. I’m not really sure what stopped me from creating one before, but I’ve decided to make my dreams come true, and just make one. So, last week, I disregarded all of my self-doubts, and started to create my concept about it. And I’m happy that I did.
Thinking about what I wanted to share in my first video made me really excited. I was just planning to do the outline, but the next thing I knew, I was already practicing the script. And a few more tries after that, I felt like I was just sharing stories to my friends, and I couldn’t help but interject phrases and jokes that a “normal Nina” would do. Of course, it was a bit different when I started recording.
I’m still camera shy and a little bit awkward. Talking to a camera feels weird sometimes, but I really enjoyed conceptualizing, editing, and letting out my wacky self . It’s also more fun to make videos because I can be more natural. That said, I think I’ll be uploading more videos soon.
Sometimes, we dream about doing a lot of things but we don’t actually do something about it. I am guilty of this because I always fear that I will fail. But isn’t doing anything at all the same as failing? Shouldn’t we be more active about chasing our dreams to ensure that we don’t fail at all?
My channel is still a work in progress. I’m still not sure yet what direction I will take my channel to, but it will surely be a complementary to my blog. Or it might be my main channel – I’m not sure. All I know is that I enjoyed doing this, and that is a step closer to finding out what else I can do and what else I am passionate about.
In case you’re curious, here’s my first YouTube video:
If you have thoughts about this post or what I can do next, do drop them in the comments below. I’m also planning on doing Q&A’s on my channel, so leave me questions below. <3
Enjoy life. Cheers!
