My first Vlog…

I hate hate hate being in front of a video camera.

It all started in Std 7 drama class.  I loved drama, I was actually pretty good at it.  Until the day we were given a random topic and told to create an advert/news clip for it.  Then we were asked to sit on the stage while the teacher pointed a video camera at us and the whole class watched.

I froze.  Dead.  Deader than dead.  I started to sweat.  I forgot my own name.  I felt dizzy.  My tummy was in knots.

I didnt take drama in Std 8…

The thought of doing this vlog left me feeling slightly nauseous and shaky and my tummy started knotting.  Then I remembered my resolution to push my bounderies and decided to just do it!

So, here it is, my very first (possibly my last) vlog.

Be gentle please.

    1. Its spelt Banga. The rest of my family spell it Bangar but since I invented the word I get to decide on the spelling and its always looked like Banga in my head…

  1. Hats off to you for pushing your boundries and look how well it turned out! “Takkies” and “Monkey’s Wedding” are definitely SA slang but your accent is pretty neutral to me.

    Well done!

  2. Hey, I left a comment yesterday but it must have disappeared. Did you get it?
    I LOVED your vlog. I think that you are very brave – this is definitely not something that I would do. Big ups to you for pushing your boundaries.

  3. Thanks, I’ve subscribed.

    Wow, good for you! Very nice 🙂 You should keep up with the videos, I’d definitely watch 🙂 I think I even have an account on Vimeo, as well as YouTube.

    I also hate being in front of the camera. I recorded countless video blogs and trashed them all! I think I have a low self-esteem just in front of the camera.

  4. I wanna do one too but my laptop doesn’t have a webcam!!!
    Hhmmm… time to steal my Glugster’s machine for a bit methinks!
