As the deadline for my Master’s Thesis approaches (only two weeks left!), I’ve been a little MIA from the blogosphere. Who knew it would take so much time and effort to write a 60-page thesis paper. Okay, I knew. I just didn’t want to believe it.
I did, however, manage to film a short a book haul video after I was done suffering from a flu that lasted for almost a month. So, without further ado, here is my February and March book haul:
I’ve recently (well, during that horrendous flu) gotten back into the groove when it comes to reading. Especially now that I can actually read for fun instead of reading for school. I’m currently 28 books in to my Goodreads reading challenge and after I finish my thesis I’m assuming that the number will suddenly climb quite a bit higher.
Guess what? Well…if you read the title, you’ll know: I have a channel on YouTube! Technically I’ve been on YouTube forever, but over the course of time, I’ve deleted all my old videos that were fandom montage ones. Now looking at them (I saved them, naturally) makes my eyes hurt because of the low quality. However, I recently decided I wanted to start vlogging so here I go!
Here is my first proper video with my FACE SHOWING. My goodness. I’m showcasing my four favorite books from this winter (although I have many many many more I could’ve shown). It was really scary making this because I suffer from bad stage fright and, for some strange reason, it also seems to apply to videos. Hopefully you’ll be able to enjoy the video, though!
I will continue to do book videos as well as maybe some haul and art videos (next up will most likely be a February book haul). Maybe some day I’ll even advance to tutorials :D If any of you have any video ideas, let me know!
For those of you who experience ASMR (if there are any of you out there), I also have an ASMR channel (which is actually more full of content already).
For those of you who might not know, ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) is a strange (and not much researched phenomenon), which is usually characterized by a tingly sensation on your head, neck, or even arms. It’s a nice feeling that can be induced by whispering, calm voice and movements, and other triggers. It’s like meditation that can be induced with a YouTube video. I got into ASMR about a year ago to help me sleep and I thought it’d be fun to make my own videos. Naturally, those don’t trigger ASMR for me – it’s like trying to tickle yourself. Just doesn’t work. But I enjoy making videos and it’s nice to know they might help others relax and/or sleep.
What kinds of videos do you prefer?
