Diary: Sleepy Home Feeling
I feel super sleepy now that I'm at home after spending three days at Elliot's house and eating lots of Turkish food and homemade cheesecake. I don't know what it is about coming home, but I feel so instantly different as soon as I get back. I guess every home has a certain kind of vibe, and part of it is that, but I feel so relaxed and nap-ready for a while (and even for a few days) after I get back and settle into my bedroom. Not that I don't feel relaxed and at home at Elliot's house, because I do, but it's just different. There are things I prefer about both places.
Recently I've been listening to music constantly, which isn't something I've done for a long time. I want to get more new albums into my brain on a regular basis, but also I've just really enjoyed having a steady stream of music in my ear lately. I'm not sure why it's working now, because for a long time I just couldn't listen to music for that long without getting a headache or feeling a bit overloaded, but it's great.
I've also been thinking a lot about what I'm doing on YouTube and how I can tweak that and stuff. I mean, I think about that a lot in general. It's always there, like a low level buzz in my brain, a vague awareness. I think I need to do a lot of playing around though. I really like that doddlevloggle style of lots of different sorts of videos on one channel, but at the same time I think my stop motion style vlogs are a distinctly cool thing and the perfect video format to have worked out. I just need to figure out the balance and make videos that are fun and bright and somewhat diverse without compromising stylistic/thematic successes. Balance is everything. I'll stop talking about this before I accidentally write an essay. And also just because I'm super sleepy and should probably relax.
