Second YouTube video!

My Second video ever is here! Thanks to all the wonderful advice from my fellow bloggers, I’ve:

1)Added a new Intro, which took me just two hours to make on Adobe After Effects from the scratch. No biggie.

2)Made the Intro only 4 seconds long.

3)Practised and improved my editing skills.

4)Added 2 annotations!

5)Worn something non-blingy.

6)And, lastly, I’ve kept on moving forward! This was a hard one, ’cause I usually give up on new tasks very soon, but not this time!

My YouTube channel!

Hello everyone! I’ve finally made my first ever YouTube channel! I had been wanting to upload videos for a really long time, but due to a lot of self-doubt and procrastination, I didn’t make any, until NOW!

I had thought that making videos was a tedious task, and boy was I proven right. In today’s day and age videos have many elements to them like proper editing, background music, intros and a LOT of advertising. Not only that, one has to make sure to use non-copyrighted music and must look for it. These simple tasks make all the difference. But, holy-moly do they take a lotta time.

As if video making wasn’t enough, the fact that I’m extremely camera-shy was also an added bonus! I don’t even like to take selfies. Not only that, I had to talk to a circular camera lens as if it were my friend for 4 minutes. And after 30 takes, I finally got the perfect video.

But it was worth it. So, SO worth it. Every single day of the video-making process, I would jump out of bed and feel at ease. Video-making is exhilarating, so , SO exhilarating!

Although the video isn’t perfect, I’ve done my best and if there are any ways in which I can improve my videos, please do let me know. Constructive criticism is always more than welcome.

So, without further ado, here’s my first video ever. I hope you all like it. 🙂

And if you all do like it, please LIKE, COMMENT, SUBSCRIBE and SHARE! It would motivate me to improve and make more videos in the future.

Life hacks #3

My last few posts have been extremely short. Well, this post is not. Today, I’m gonna share with you all a new life hack.
      This is a series where I share my noteworthy experiences with you all, my fellow bloggers. And what makes these experiences so noteworthy is that, they teach me the most simple lessons. These lessons are certainly not new, but from time to time, I tend to forget these lessons, and they serve as a much-needed reminder.
       A few days ago, my friend and I decided to meet at a mall which was fairly close to my house. We met for coffee, discussed our love for Twenty One Pilots and rock music in general and then just roamed about the mall. We had a lot of fun, but since she stays far away, she had to catch the local train. And I decided to accompany her to the station. The reason why I decided to do so was because the station was between my house and the mall. So, I dropped her off to the station, and then headed towards my house.
      The road from the station to my house is filled with people, cars, bikes, and crooked tiles. No seriously, the footpath is not a smooth, flat piece of land. The footpath is made up of many crooked tiles pieced up together haphazardly.
     The walk from the mall to my house is about twenty minutes long, but is usually longer because of the pedestrians walking in the opposite direction and making something as simple as walking more time-consuming.
       As I was walking, the throngs of people ignored me and passed by me but a few slammed into me as well. The most notable pedestrian just stood in the middle of the sidewalk, and refused to move. I decided to walk around him and that led me to tripping over a crooked tile and breaking the strap of one of my flip-flops. I was outraged but I kept on walking. And since I was closer to home anyway, I decided to endure the hobbling.
     Have you ever experienced something so simply frustrating? If you have, I’ve got the perfect solution for YOU. This solution or life hack is called ‘Patience.’ Seriously. In this fast-paced life of ours, we tend to be impatient all the time. Fast food, fast rides, fast everything. And I was forced to take things slow because of my destroyed flip-flop. I decided to use that time imagining me wearing an other pair of my open-toed wedges with the straps over the toes. I also imagined be me being a yogini and wearing wooden slippers.

I imagined myself wearing this pair of slippers.

So, if you all, my dear bloggers are forced to take life slow for a few moments, try to make those moments bearable by being patient.

Life hacks #2

So, I turned eighteen this Thursday. It had been an awesome but an extremely chaotic day. I had been out for more than twelve hours. Needless to say, I woke up the next day at two pm.
On the twenty third of this month, ten minutes before twelve am, I was hyperventilating. The following was my thought process :-
‘Oh my god! It’s my birthday tomorrow! I’m nervous but excited. Who will wish me? Will my best friends call me at midnight? Will my parents throw me a surprise party? What presents will I get? Will I feel any different? Will I feel older all of a sudden?’
As you can read, my thoughts were jumbled. I was thinking WAY too much. Although the day was important, I was thinking constantly about it. And then at the stroke of midnight, I had an epiphany. I said,” Don’t take any day too seriously. It’s just a day. Sure it is important but I shouldn’t expect anything of it. I should just accept anything and everything that comes in my way on this day.”
All of us have days which are extremely important for us. Be it our graduation, wedding day or in my case, my eighteenth birthday. We always want everything to be perfect on THIS particular day. We don’t want anything to go wrong, so we think, and we plan, and then we think some more. This extra thinking puts a lot of stress on us before and on these special days. But we forget the most important lesson, we forget that life is unpredictable. THE special day maybe good or bad. There maybe things that may go right and things that may go wrong. We can control the day only to a certain extent. Therefore, we shouldn’t expect.
So,my readers, don’t put pressure on yourselves to make a day perfect, because it never will be perfectly perfect.

Life Hacks #1

Who all get nervous just thinking about public speaking??? I know I do. Raise your hand if you feel this way too so I don’t feel awkward over here standing by myself with my hand raised.
         

So, a few days ago I participated in a debate competition. And a minute before my turn, I was getting extremely nervous.
Side note: Signs of nervousness include – 1)Thinking so much at a time, that one doesn’t know what to think anymore.
2)An overwhelming urge to run away, to go back home and forget about the speech that was never spoken by one.
3)Sweating. A lot.
4)Unnaturally cold palms.
5)A prayer asked by one for an earthquake at the same moment as one’s speech. Also, any other natural disaster will suffice.
6)Wanting everyone in the audience to look away when one gives one’s speech.
 
So, what’s the solution? Five seconds before my speech, I had an epiphany.
The epiphany goes something like this – “I’m never gonna see any of you all ever again. Ever. Ever! So it doesn’t even matter if I mess up. You all won’t remember me anyway! The joke’s on you all. Muahaha! See you never suckers!!!

This thought can calm  anyone down in an instant! This method has been tried an tested! And is 100% Ramexa approved!

So I’m planning to share a life hack every week. What do you all think about it? Do comment!
