Howdy everybody! I did indeed make–and upload!–the second video tonight! 😁
This one is somewhat longer than the first one. In it, I tell my story of discovering that I’m on the Asperger’s/autism spectrum, for those who may not yet be familiar with it. It’s another sort-of-introductory video, since I’m new at this and probably will be for a while, and thus it might take me a bit to figure out what I’m doing ;). I’m still experimenting a little (OK–a lot!), getting used to seeing myself in the computer monitor, recording, and whatnot. This YouTube channel is indeed my first foray into doing anything with photography/video. All I’ve known up until now is writing. 🙂
In this experiment, I decided to use our somewhat-newer and less-heavily-used 17-inch laptop. This might do away with some of the freezing/jerkiness that plagued my first video. My partner has adjusted the video output to be slightly warmer than the default setting, and although the lighting looks a bit dimmer, it may be better-balanced (I hope!).
I also decided to utilize notes only during the very first parts of this video, as opposed to relying on them much more heavily like I did in the first video.
This video went a bit longer, clocking in at 10 minutes and 20-some seconds, and it amazes me how fast time goes! And it’s still nothing fancy, just me babbling about my self-discovery experience and what made me first begin to suspect that I’m on the spectrum.
Oh, and my hair is worn loose for this one, too 😉
I hope y’all enjoy! ❤
I had a lot of fun doing this one, too, and once I get past the introductory phase (which will likely be soon!), I’ll delve into some more significant topics! Hopefully less than almost a full two weeks later, too 😉
