As I was drawing up my New Year’s Resolutions for 2018, I consulted Anna Akana’s video on how she organized hers. When I reached the art bubble, something compelled me to write “film a video tour of my current home”. If you’re a regular reader of this blog (that I obviously update so regularly, so why wouldn’t you be?), you might already know about my obsession with the idea of home and the places I’ve lived. Taking photos of my past abodes is great, but I really want to immortalize my spaces in video. And improve my skills. So here we go, a video tour of my studio apartment in Austin, Texas.
Funnily enough, I now sort of blog for a living. I could say that’s why my public, personal blog hasn’t been updated. But it’s more that the reality of having a public blog hit me a few months ago. It’s not like I post all my musics, lofty dreams I’m secretly scared to admit, voice recordings I want to fashion into podcasts, or wish lists for material and immaterial desires. But I want to.
As this blog is meant to act as my (very public) diary, I had the urge a few days ago to share how looking back at these photos made me feel.
