My quarantine vlog is finally up! ✨
This video has taken a long while to put together, but it’s finally finished, and I like how it turned out!
At first it was supposed to be your “typical” vlog, and I had meant it to be a 3-day vlog (going from Saturday to Monday, a week or so after lockdown began). I filmed it all during those three days, but upon rewatching the footage a few weeks later, I realised I rambled way too much and it would be really hard to edit together. Then I kinda let the footage gather e-dust for a couple of months as I finished all my coursework and let my mental health get better.
After I got back to it at the end of May, and rewatching all the footage, I got the idea to turn it into something that appealed more to my aesthetic and realised I could edit it in a way that simplified the narrative of those three (mentally chaotic) days and ended on a positive message — without necessarily getting rid of the chaos, either!
Seeing and hearing everyone’s positive reaction to this video made me realise that I absolutely love making this sort of wholesome content. I’m just happy to see that people enjoyed it, were moved by it, that it resonated with them and/or that it helped them in some way, even by just feeling better on that day. It really makes me feel fulfilled and like my content is worthwhile. So I will definitely make more of this in the future. ♡
