Shout out to this genius (haydenrodgers) who’s amazing recipe I found yesterday and immediately had to try out.

They are still cooling but I can’t wait to take a bite of these delicious smelling sugar bombs. Okay nevermind. I tried them and sweet lord they are good. Unfortunately I think if i eat more than one at a time I’ll probably pass out due to sugar flash. But yes. Great food indeed.

Also. The picture of the cakes got three times the like on Facebook a selfie of my fabulous self gets. I feel slightly offended :D

so I saw this video and “Running without sound” made me think of:

a) running with wolves and hence teen wolf

b) the deaf community

so I obvs watched it

and it turns out to be a really cute short movie, (second part is here), to which I first reacted with “what the fuck was this what happened” but then I read comments on it that made me think further and then I was feeling really strongly about it

and then the Sterek shipper on me was wrecking havoc because

a) Shawn is sort of a Stiles type if you try, and Stiles as a deaf person/someone who uses Sign Language grew as a tendency in the fandom, which while I have no idea how it happened I am super glad about

b) Derek is ACTUALLY CALLED DEREK and actually does look like young Derek so like ?????? what

idk this screams prompt to me and also it stands on itself as a Sterek au anyways

I thought @hazelandglasz @bowtieoblige @haydenrodgers and @halffizzbin might find it cute/inspiring so here it is

Well shit...I just took down my YouTube videos...

Actually, I don’t know if there are any people left here that remember that’s what I used to do. It’s been such a blast from the past watching a few of them and it’s actually quite a momentous occasion, taking them down. Momentous and emotional. Hence the blogging.

So I’ve known for a long time now that I was going to have to take down my YouTube videos eventually in preparation for my professional life. And, for a less long but still quite lengthy time, I’ve know that that time would be in these holidays between 2nd and 3rd year. The way this course works is that 3rd year is supposed to be a sort of one-foot-in-the-door of the industry where we’re encouraged (and forced) to start being professionals. So naturally having a huge body of work on the internet of me pre-training (and looking rather too young) is not ideal.

And truthfully after watching a few videos, even the ones I really like, I identify so many technical things I’m doing wrong and so many sounds I don’t like. I considered leaving a couple up but I knew I was just being sentimental and, practically, it’s really not possible to move forward with this old material up. It’s quite hilarious when I remember how good I used to think I was at singing.

A vain, prideful part of me is sad to hide them because some of these videos have tens of thousands of views (in one case over 150 000). But that’s neither here nor there.

BUT…
That’s right, there is a “but”. My plan at this point is to reawaken my channel - free from any of my old branding and ideas - and turn it into a professional tool where I can share performances that will show me as a well-trained, employable performer. Obviously this will mean a lot of musical theatre, but I’m sure all sorts of things could appear. At this point I’m thinking at the least this includes a recording of any of my key performances next year (even if that’s not live footage from a show but a “rehearsal” recording).

So yes! This was as much for me to mark this occasion as it was anything else. But now you know!
