This weekend while at Best Buy and browsing the software aisle, I was approached by an employee who asked me if I had any questions.
I (not being technologically proficient in anyway) questioned him about the software I was looking at and my concerns that it would be difficult to use.
He laughed and explained that all I had to do was go out to YouTube and any question I could possibly have would be answered in great detail. People apparently film their computer screens and walk you through whatever you need to know.
That got me thinking...
Maybe I could figure out how to work the webcam on my laptop and do a vlog.
It sounded like a good idea at the time.
I did a search for how to use a webcam to make a video on Youtube. I learned how to use my webcam by watching a video that was posted by a kid who looked like he was 7 years old.
I had a flash forward. I realized that this will be my daughters in five years showing me how to use my computer and all the gizmos and gadgets that will be out on the market. Scary. Very scary.
Let me assure you that me doing this video at 1:30 in the morning is not something I should have attempted. It was quite entertaining when I was watching it this morning. Can I say "thank you, God" for not letting me upload it last night and posting it. Someone was looking over my shoulder and reminding me to not let my lack of sleep influence my judgment.
It seems I talk the way I write which means it could have been titled, "The Runaway Vlog" since I was rambling about my visit to Best Buy, the webcam video, my awesome new haircut (where I show off the lack of hair on my head), the gossip I learned from my new hairstylist (this says a lot about my experience this weekend since I have never really had hairstylist loyalty before), the gym, and my new extrovert self where I had a moment of clarity in the middle of the mall. It could have been called "How Much Can Joy Fit Into 3 Minutes: The Video".
I was a little to excited to try out my awesome new vlogging skills. I am not sure I am vlogging material after seeing and hearing myself onscreen.
That was one video that will never be shown. EVER. But I can say I learned something new this weekend.
You can find anything you need on Youtube!
What did you learn this weekend?
