I had an excellent start to my day: I somehow managed to get up at ridiculous o’clock this morning, and so I had all this time this morning to work through my to-do list.
And one of the things that I wanted to do was film my next YouTube video. But apparently our neighbours had other ideas: they’re doing renovations upstairs 🙄 The drilling and hammering sounded like it was directly above me. So filming in the apartment wasn’t happening today, sighhh…
So I got ready to go and film outside, pulling together all my usual equipment and making sure Little Miss had food and aircon (it’s very warm again today).
It took me a bajillion hours to leave the apartment. And when I finally did and I made my way to the bus stop (I’d rather catch the bus than walk in this heat), no one was at the bus stop. So I checked the bus timetable. Apparently I was ten minutes out with the bus arrival time. So instead of being five minutes early to the bus stop, I was five minutes late. Argh! So I had no choice but to walk 😤
And then as I was walking, I noticed just how bright it was, so I went to go get my sunglasses from my handbag 🕶 Apparently I left them at home. WTH. I almost always bring my sunnies with me, unless there’s a downpour. But it was clearly sunny outside, so there was absolutely no reason not to bring them with me today. Plus they sit right next to my wallet at home, which I brought with me today, so what happened with my sunnies?!? 😤
So you can only imagine just how annoyed I already was when I got to my chosen lunch venue – and how even more annoyed I was when I saw just how many people were waiting for a table. I waited for almost half an hour for a table 😒 I wanted to beat the lunch time rush, but because it took me so long to get out of the house (and then the subsequent debacle with the bus), I ended up getting to the restaurant almost an hour later than I had originally planned. Argh!
While I was waiting for a table, my mum called to tell me that their financial adviser hadn’t kept their phone appointment, and that they’d been waiting for his call for half an hour. Not sure what happened there either. It just seems like the universe is against us today. Sighhh… 😒
It was too bright and hot for me to stay outdoors for too long today, so I decided to just go home and see if I could continue filming my video back in my study. It was a beautiful day, though, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to take a few selfies while I was out. But then I ended up doing this for longer than I expected – and so missed the bus home! I missed the bus leaving home and then I missed it again going back home. Arghhhh! 😩
Anyway, so I finally got home, and I thought I’d watch back the footage that I took today to determine where in the script I needed to pick up from. It turned out that what I filmed today had absolutely no audio. Not bad audio, no audio. I must’ve had the audio setting set incorrectly, so I ended up not capturing any audio whatsoever. So basically I was back at square one. Can you believe it?!? Un. Be. Lie. Va. Ble.
If anything could go wrong, it did go wrong today. I didn’t have much time this afternoon to film my video from scratch, so instead, I did a vlog, ranting about my day! 🤣 🤣 Not sure how well it’ll go down with my audience, but oh well. Such is life! You can’t things too seriously, and sometimes I forget that. And who knows, it could end up being one of my more popular videos! 🤷♀️ You just don’t know 😆
