Because I don’t think I officially wrote about it yet, I started a YouTube channel a couple of months ago. You can check it out here (shameless plug). So far, the content I’m producing there is movies and my nightmares.
I had originally planned to start making posts here about my weird dreams and nightmares, but I just couldn’t get them written out in a way that would make much sense. Mainly because it’s hard to talk about your own dreams in any way besides first person POV, but first person narrative is really hard to pull off (without driving the readers up the wall).
So if you’re interested in keeping track of my weird and sometimes fucked up dreams, maybe subscribe to the channel (another shameless plug). Once I really get into the swing of things, I aim to have one or two new dream videos posted each month.
And that all leads me into the next thing I wanted to talk about: getting (back) into the swing of things. And doing new things. And feeling motivated for the first time in fucking forever.
A handful of months ago, I created the YouTube channel, largely because I saw that the channel name “Slightly Less Than Insane” was available, and I wanted it. Because samezies and matchies and all that good shit. Well, my husband, discovering that I had created the channel, kept asking, “have you made any videos yet?”
I didn’t really have an idea of what to make a video on, but here I talk about books, so fuck it, there I’ll talk about movies. I put up a few videos in October, then none in November because ffffffff………..
Whatever, around the last ten days or so in November, I got back to work on it, started playing around in the editing software, making different intro/outro segments and fiddling with audio mixing and all that good ish. And the more I worked on it, the better I felt. About things in general.
Working on something new, or even just working on something that required me to follow a semi-set schedule (but also didn’t threaten the END OF THE WORLD if I didn’t meet some arbitrary deadline), and something that I could see the progress in. I don’t know, but I felt damn good. I felt like I had accomplished something just for me for the first time in so, so long.
I want to keep this feeling up as long as possible, so I’m going to keep working on the channel in addition to this blog. If you like reading my reactions to books, check out the videos in which I react to movies (…often while drunk, because I’m a grown damn woman that’s why!). If you just want to see the nightmare vids, that’s cool too, they will be here. Man, look at that shameless pug…
…you’re still reading? Um… I don’t really have a closing paragraph for this one. I really do need more coffee. Or less? I’m kind of twitchy right now. Whatever. K, bye!
