Remember in the last post I mentioned something about trying out something new?
So the past few days what I've been so busy with is....
So I've started playing with Youtube and it's been a months and honestly yay to progress, boo to it growing really really SLOWLYYYYYY.
This basically is a "trying out Youtube" channel as it's a gaming channel, so I don't need to stress about content other than having to win every round so as to get decent content. And limited editing just voice over and the some editing basics. Hence the getting the hang of Youtube, understanding analytics and algorithms.
All in all, surprised that in less than 1 month, from knowing nothing about Video editing and Youtube to uploading and constant checking on analytics. In fact, not even a month but 1 week in and editing comes second nature.
The voice over is the hard part though cause it's really hard to think of what to say to fill the silence sometimes and there's a lot of doubt with should I speak more? speak less? don't speak just put description. And having lack of data (comments/likes/etc...) doesn't help much.
So at this stage I just tell myself to keep doing and experiment. Easier said than done, but heyyy don't give up Ming!
For those that are interested, it's a channel for Magic Chess Mobile Legend. If you do play the game, feel free to head over and check it out : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7U10jqVFu159r_-er2QUUQ
I know it's been 3 days since I last updated, and it's not because I fell off the bandwagon. I promise this is not an excuse but I kinda found something that I want to do, and have been doing that. And OMG how time flies, I barely have enough time to use in a day.
Keeping it under wraps first and once there's some progress I'll be sure to let you guys know.
That aside, today's topic is very constant in my life, and I feel it from time to time without realising that it could be a repetitive pattern and today I want to use my blog, to hopefully be able to think it through and break the pattern.
I was feeling this way about a group of friends, how I feel left out when I'm with them and then I wanted to tell Sean about it so I started with, "Hey, you know the feeling of being left out" and immediately his response was "yea, i think you told me before, your childhood right". And I was caught by surprise because no this particular case was not of my childhood but something that happened to me recently. And because of his comments I psychoanalysed my whole life which brought me to realise that this event is not singular and well, patterns will repeat until something or some thoughts figured out.
Writing this post because it feels like a follow up post from the last post and also a little #notetoself so that I am reminded of these little things I can do to maintain or increase productivity level. Yes, I do have a habit of reading my blogposts from time to time.
Demetri here is a wise man. And the couch's best friend, the bed is also the enemy of productivity.
42 days ago... I became a free woman
25 days ago... lockdown was declared
Wow, the irony of this.
But this is not a story of how miserable or happy I am during the lockdown.
This is a story on how to regain control, because when one have too much freedom, that's where you lose self-control. And I lost control.
So 1 blogpost a day yea... sounds easy until everyday I need to think about what I need to write for the day.
And I kid you not, I've actually changed the topic a few times before deciding on this one.
So why am I writing about water drinking?
Because this is the ONE HABIT I've been wanting to pick up for years and it was only fairly recent that I managed to do it and said goodbye to ol'sickly me.
Just like everything in life, even something as simple as drinking water also has techniques and here I will reveal what are the unconscious things you can do to increase your water intake. Prepare to be mindblown!
But first things first...
For the past 2 years, I have a created a booklist for myself reason being, I am not reading enough. A proud bookworm here hasn't really been reading ever since she joined the labour force. So one day 2 years ago, I was determined to get back to reading.
But what should I read? Do I still like the books that I read when I was 19 years old?
Not knowing where to even begin, hence the idea of the book list.
So here's my list for 2019 :
As mentioned on my last post, I tried out a few freelancing websites to hopefully get me some gigs.
And I know most of the younger generation now is thinking of quitting their job and going into freelancing via these websites. Fret not, I've done 20% of the work. I registered myself and checked through the jobs and even submitted some proposals
The shockest (cause I'm shocker that shock) thing I found out about some of these jobs...
SCAMMY. By scammy here I mean, it smells fishy, i'm like 99% it's a scam and if someone wants to prove me wrong to try it out, be my guest. But I am not going to do it.
So let's start with the websites that I checked out and drop my "proposals"
Can you believe I've had this blog for 4 years? And it all started from my love for travelling and now in the present year 2020, I'd just want to dedicate this space to JOURNAL.
Yup, you read that right. It's for me to "discipline" myself because...
And here I am... at the age of near 30s to teach myself discipline.
One post a day and with quarantine in, it's just bollocks if I can't do this. Plus I need something constant to go through the day yea?
First things first, from the title for today let's start with...
1. COVID-19 HIT MALAYSIA --- and it's been 16 days of quarantine.
Honestly, this made me realise I'm actually a home-person. I have no problems NOT stepping out of the house at all. I mean wow, what a revelation.
I know everyone secretly wants to do this, but perhaps not have the guts to.
Read more to know why it's actually a great idea to travel alone and may be,after this you'll take that first step forward.
Upon graduation, I took the road less travelled and that… has made all the difference.
