The other day (I can't even figure out how many days ago it was because my brain is soooooo ..... blah).......... anyway, the other day I filmed my part for the Gaijin Gyaru Awards. After doing that, I spend like 24 hours straight editing!!!!! I actually turned into a computer. I worked out that I memorised over 1000 numbers........ I tried to explain but it made this post even longer, so I screen-capped it for if anyone does actually want to read it!:
Here are some photos from when I was filming:
I looked even worse than usual, if you can't tell from the photos - you will definitely be able to tell in the video!
But I'm not filming it again, I always film things like 5 times!
It was sooooooo warm >_< My makeup kept coming off!
Also, my face was so weird and I put too much blusher on so I look like I have a beard haha
Ah well, you all know that nothing ever goes right when I do it! Haha
I just know there's going to be the usual 50 people who feel the need to comment on the video saying "you look disgusting" etc - as if I didn't already know! >_<
Talking about things never working for me, here's a funny story:
After my 24 hours of editing, I went to sleep for 4 or 5 hours then edited for another day and tried to export it (I don't know what day in the story this is anymore, it's all one big blur) To export it takes 9 HOURS! When there were 5 hours left I had to go somewhere, so I took the laptop with me on the hour-long car journey. The battery ran out 5 minutes before we arrived!
When we got there I ran in and plugged the laptop in. Luckily, it continued exporting, somehow.
After the 9 hours, I looked at the exported video to find the audio was messed up AND THERE WAS A MASSIVE WATERMARK OVER THE VIDEO!!
So..... I adjusted the audio and Neton helped me find a solution to the watermark problem.... apparently I was using 'Flip4mac' to export WMV files that people had sent in. Anyway..... I think that was last night...... After he'd finally done that, I started to export again then went to sleep.
I woke up this morning to see 'general error'. No explanation, just 'general error'. So I started the exporting again. 9 hours.
When there were 3 hours left, it quit saying 'general error' again. Apparently my hd memory was too full >_<
So I deleted a ton of stuff, including upcoming videos I was going to upload to Youtube. Like a haircare video, 5 nail tutorials, a DIY makeup storage and a "4-looks-in-1" makeup video that I filmed like 3 months ago.
I wasn't bothered about the makeup tutorial, because this is what it ended up looking like:
It was supposed to be 5 looks in one (Natural, Popteen, Egg, Banba and Manba) but I gave up at banba! They merged into each other.
I never liked the Popteen look, and I definitely can't pull it off!
But still, I've sacrificed a lot for these awards haha
So I set it to export again and there's currently 6 hours left:
I was sticking up my middle finger at the screen while I took this.
So yeah, I was hoping to upload the awards like 3 days ago, but now I'm hoping tomorrow or the day after...... I'm reeeealllly hoping. I just know something else is going to go wrong.
It's funny because someone said to me "I would have thrown it out the window by now" and that's when I realised........ I'm sooooo used to stuff like this now, I just expect it to happen. I would have been shocked if it hadn't!
Some more things from Ebay came, here they are:
£1.21 - more than I'd usually spend on a ring but I really love it!
I don't know if anyone has made it this far into this mess of a blog post, but if you have.......... thank you. Haha
I just needed to rant a little, and let you all know why the awards are taking so long.
Argh, I'm never editing or uploading a video again.
Haha, only joking <3
