So many "Practice with Me's!" :D
Honestly, I just wasn't feeling the makeup that day, and I was stressed (and am still) from the mad dash to get everything prepared before the holidays. I don't think I've ever made this many videos and taught so many lessons in so short a time before, but I'm thankful for the work. :) I won't deny that it's stressful, but I am also acknowledging that it's a blessing.
The beauty of these "Practice with Me" videos is that it gives me a very convenient fall-back plan for when I'm running out of time and/or just don't feel like dressing up for a video. It's an outlet for feeling 100% just me and transparent, even if that means I don't actually feel like making a video. It's akin to just sitting in front of a webcam and making stuff up on the spot--no planning, no preparation, just totally raw.
I just couldn't stand the lighting in my first two "Practice with Me" videos, so I added the cheap studio lights. :P
The end result is that you guys get endless pracrastination material (and these are pretty much literally pracrastination because I'm hoping you guys actually take a look at the pdf of the music and follow along), and I get a lovely framework set up to help me feel fulfilled and authentic when I'm not feeling the greatest. It's amazing how it's worked out!
Hope you guys enjoy this one! :)
