If any of you are familiar with NBC's "The Good Place", Chidi is the character I most relate to. In the attempt to be an ethical person (particularly if you're over educated and hyperaware of potential consequences), indecision can become crippling. I hope I'm slightly less locked in my head than poor Chidi gets, but I am guilty of over thinking and under acting.
I've hit the 3rd month in the apartment with hours of recorded footage, and no full episodes to show. I have figured out a few issues that were holding me up. I now have a phone friendly tripod and figured out how to use my current software to add subtitles (for the hearing impaired or people who just need to watch videos silently).
I do at least have this introduction video to show and am making headway on Episode 1.
Trying to push myself forward rather than beat myself up. As previously mentioned, I work full time. I live alone, no dish washer, and I'm going carless. My volunteers have been scarce. So it takes longer to do everything, and I'm a little worn out most days. Being a pasty and not naturally photogenic gal, I can have a good 20 to 30 minutes worth of makeup application before shooting so I don't look like a zombie.
But, the bills are paid, gradually making progress on the goals for the year. Part of me really wants to take a temp job through the holidays and hit those goals faster, but I think until I'm getting videos out at a regular pace, this needs to be my focus.
Really need to hit 100 subscribers, so I can use custom thumbnails...yikes.
P.S. We did not hit the sponsor goal to do a 5th week of the $1/day food challenge, but I was honestly ready to be done with it. Now on the $1/meal budget, which is our recommended starting amount.
