Deleted video & some updates!

If you follow my YouTube you probably saw that I uploaded a video for all of a few hours then it disappeared.  I did that on purpose, after uploading the video I realized I didn't like the quality so I deleted it.  It was only a writing update but now I'm in the middle of making a vlog and hopefully will have that uploaded by Wednesday or Thursday.  (I won't delete this one!)  Editing is going well and I feel like I'm finally getting out of this funk.  I also got a job!  It's only part time but it's better than nothing so I'm grateful about it.  I listened to Kristen Martin's entire podcast "That Smart Hustle" and it's inspired me so much I can't stop thinking about it.  

I've realized how much I've allowed fear to control my life and I'm tired of it.  Recently I've been approached to make a HUGE life changing decision, I haven't decided on it yet but I'm not going to let fear stop me from taking this opportunity.  Life is short and I'm realizing every minute is precious.

My computer broke :(

A few weeks ago my computer completely shut down on me.  I managed to fix it with the help of YouTube but sadly a few days later it broke again (kept restarting and flashing a blue screen).  I even bought some cheap software in hopes that would fix it and nope nothing.

In the process I lost a good portion of pictures and files but luckily I saved my book.  It's always saved on a USB no matter what.  For a few days after that I panicked and ordered a refurbished computer from EBay, and guess what, that didn't work either.  So I had to return it and now the only computer I have is a 9 inch pink laptop I bought used from EBay years ago.  The internet is super slow, I can't use Microsoft word (just openoffice), and it only works with a charger.  At first I was going to stop editing until I get another computer but even though it's harder it's not impossible and I don't want to give up.  As of today I've gotten through chapter 9 and getting through chapter 10.  Once I'm done I plan to make videos on my progress and might even do an editing vlog.  It's been stressful, at the moment I'm searching for a job and have little money.  Working on this book is the only thing keeping me going.

I've been drinking 3 cups of coffee a day so I guess that shows how stressed I am. :(
