Comfort zones and being outside them

So part of the reason why I started doing my 101 in 1001 list all those years ago was to try and force myself out of my comfort zone a little bit. And given that a decent chunk of the stuff left on the list requires money (given that I wrote it before I decided to go back to university and all...), and I currently don't really have any on account of having been a student for the past year and a half, I've hit something of a brick wall in regards to crossing things off the list. And as a result, my comfort zone has gotten increasingly more comfortable of late.

So when I saw Sweeney tweeting yesterday about something I've seen her participate in a bunch of times before, I figured that maybe - even though the idea kind of freaks me out a little bit - I should join in and get out of my comfort zone again.

That's right, kids. I'm going to attempt VEDA! (Vlog Every Day in August, for those of you not down with the acronym lingo)

It's definitely going to get me out of my comfort zone, because while I've made quite a few vlogs this year, I tend to spend days agonising over the filming and the editing and only recording when I'm in the middle of a very good hair day. With VEDA, I won't have that luxury. But with any luck, I'll get better at making shorter videos, and getting them edited and up online quickly!

So for the month of August, there will (barring any complications) be a new video up on my Youtube channel every day. As a result, I'll probably be posting here a bit less often, given that I'll be making a video every day, as well as posting on Snark Squad four times a week. But don't worry - I'm not going anywhere, and if you want to witness all the awkward, you can always subscribe on Youtube.

Hell, if you really want to, join in the fun yourself - you can sign up for VEDA here!

So here's to a month of getting out of my comfort zone, and of Youtube delivering me all the awful thumbnail options it possibly can. And hopefully a few little autocaption gems like this one:

  1. Kudos to you, my friend! Good stuff. I'm waaaay too undisciplined (read: lazy) to do something like that.

    Also? That autocaption? Bwahahahah!

  3. Good lord, how did that autocaption come up??

    I don't think I'll ever be a vlogger, but I love listening to other people's accents. It either reminds me of home, or makes me dream of places I would love to travel to...

  4. I thought you'd gotten matching arm tattoos without telling me for a second there.....

  5. ...in my head you speak with a British accent (obvs, all the best people do), always surprises me that you're actually Australian sounding.

    PS - I don't live in London, call yourself my BFF?!?!? Unless you were talking about someone else that I don't know about that you met in Guatemala when I was busy with dysentery?
