First off, my apologies for the technical difficulties. I hope it works this time.
Now, I thought I would change it up a little bit and do my first ever video-blog--the main reason being that I have a bit of show-and-tell to do for this next one.
As a perfectionist, there were a number of things on the video that I wanted to do-over. But, then again, I'd probably be here forever, since I ended up sharing for over 10 minutes. Unfortunately, the 'delete' button doesn't work so well with video editing as it does with writing. I notice I ramble at times and say things that I already have said, so watching myself has given me an opportunity to reflect on how I can better transmit my thoughts. Many people are terrified of seeing themselves on screen or even listening to their own voice, but I've had plenty of practice as a singer. And, I took a Hopkins poetry class where my professor required us to record ourselves reciting one of his poems, so it's not new to me. So, here I am, unscripted, unedited, and uncensored!
(Well, actually, it now is edited. I didn't make another video but just ended up trimming the one I made. So, unfortunately, you won't get to see talk about my last batch of pan de ube--a Filipino pastry. That also accounts for the abrupt jumps in the video...I'm no tech expert on these things but I tried to make it flow as best as I could)
(*If you are reading this through facebook, as I have my blog automatically update to my profile, you'll have to access the video directly through my website. Youtube video doesn't stream through my imported notes)
