Every time I upload a video to my YouTube channel, I always ask myself why I don’t do it more often.
Making videos has always been this strange hobby of mine that I shared with a person here or there who may or may not have fully understood.
For a long while, I was embarrassed of my interest in watching people I didn’t know talk to cameras, make short films and inspire me to be like them.
In 2010, I met so many of the people I watched for more than a year and friends I’d met online and talked to nightly throughout the summer.
Through my time, I’ve garnered a beautiful audience of intelligent, supportive people who appreciate what I do.
When you follow through with a video idea — for me, at least — you take a bit of yourself and somehow edit it together to make it coherent, intelligible. And then you throw it on this website and hope that the people who see it will understand, will connect, will give you feedback.
I’m always going to fear that someone’s going to dislike something about these weird things I put online. But I just thoroughly appreciate everyone who’s been super nice over the past — wow — three years.
And with that, I give you my recent video, which I uploaded Sunday, April 15. I want to give personal hugs to everyone who tweeted at me, you encouraging lot. And the super, brilliant folks who commented, you’re the literal best.
