Since my first Christmas on Youtube I have been doing a bit of a project of sorts called the 12 Days of ScrtChristmas. Vlogging everyday was never something that I could find the time for because… well… life, but once a year I challenge myself to post a video for twelve days in a row. This year will mark my seventh year of doing this.
It is a strange thought for me that I could spend seven years doing anything, though I am definitely not the person who just graduated high school it still feels like it was yesterday… and yet seven years. It adds a little bit of perspective because, you know, being married and drowning in student loan debt isn’t enough perspective. It is strange how some things in life can affect us and the feeling we have towards the current, and yet it is puzzling. Why do I feel like high school was yesterday when it wasn’t. Scary thought of the day is that a ten-year reunion is around the corner for me, but I don’t feel like it should be. Does this mean I am young at heart or does it make me immature, various people would argue either side.
There is that age-old adage – or whatever that term is – that you are only as old as you feel. Maybe I just think of it as an adage because I have had it barked at me so many times. I don’t feel old, therefore I am not. Last Monday I was at a work event and someone overheard me talking about my husband, which caused them to quickly interject and apologize before asking me how old I was. I suppose I just give off this vibe and maybe my looks as well, but here is where the puzzling bit comes in. I feel like high school was yesterday, but I also feel as though at my age my being married is normal. So I don’t see my age and then I do at the same time.
I decided I would just face the last seven years head on so I put them all in my first video of this years 12 days of ScrtChristmas. What can I say? I am just a hopeless wanderer – and yes I am hash tagging it #12DoSC
The second video has already been posted and the third one is scheduled for tomorrow at noon, but you can always link to those through the Youtube – where ScrtSolstice originated for me. For now, here’s the beginning to year seven:
