Remember when I started vlogging? Oh my God. I remember it was a gloomy day in Fullerton, California (the town that I went to college in), and I was shooting my best friend’s headshots for her acting class. Even then, I was into shooting photography! (even though I was pretty terrible). Vlogging on my phone was great, because I got to show you guys what I loved to do every day- but It wasn’t until I got my very first real* vlog camera that things changed. Something about getting to vlog in 1080P with a flip out screen makes things all the more exciting. Its so funny because vlogging takes a LOT to get used to, and even still to this day I’m nervous to vlog in public. Deep down, I wish I was like Alisha and Teala and could just be fearless in a store, ordering my Starbucks and casually talking to you guys in a vlog. It’s kind of my new years resolution. My very first vlog camera brought a ton of memories, like when I vlogged my best friends and I looking at Christmas lights in my old neighborhood back home, or when I got my hair done in the very first fancy ‘Los Angeles’ salon I’d ever been to (and the last…I like salons back home way better!), but my favorite vlog I remember doing on my first vlog camera was the Pretty Little Liars A Reveal. Holy shishkabob. I remember Alisha came over, and I didn’t own a tripod for my vlog camera, so we balanced my camera on a stack of shoeboxes and books and made popcorn and watched the A reveal. When they said A was Charles, I jumped so freaking hard that the entire vlog camera fell over. That was the funniest moment though, because we literally jumped. We were so scared. We jumped so hard and when I scooped my vlog camera off the ground, there was a small crack in the screen. All because of how shook we were about the PLL A reveal. My leg was going crazy like a damn animal and it was all caught on vlog.
Since then, two years have passed and I just recently got a new vlog camera- the same one, but without a crack. I’m creating new memories with it, like taking it with me to Puerto Rico and finally (almost) finishing Vlogmas 2016….hey, I got 23/24 the way there. New cameras mean new memories and new cracks to be made in them, but I’ve still kept my very first vlog camera all these years, and now I want you to have it.
It still works. Don’t worry. I hope you don’t mind my crack in it. You can thank Pretty Little Liars for that one. But I hope it inspires you to go out and create memories with it, whether they’re vlogs, crappy headshots for acting class or more. Get inspired, and make your #RememberWhen
