Video Blog - How not to be a bitch to yourself

1. I don't know why the audio and video don't seem to align. Let's pretend I'm all Bruce Lee in the video and all American voice-over in the audio shall we? 

2. I don't know why I am holding my neck like that. Get over it. 

3. I'm wearing makeup it's true. I had to be some place this morning and I was too lazy to get it washed off so I could be all real in the clip.

For the record... I shared this with my daughter and she said, "OMG that's where I get the stupid faces!"
Thanks LCG!

Don't knock the funny faces, they're probably the reason you look younger than your age. Exercising those facial muscles irons out the wrinkles.

Tara said...

I really like this! :D

The reason you make - as you say - stupid faces is because you are too self-conscious. That's all. I wouldn't worry about it one bit, because if you do, it implies you want to be accepted by the world, something that's so overrated. You don't have time for that nonsense, Angie. Focus on whoever likes you. You can't please everyone nor should you try too hard. I'm sure you've heard these words before, probably even coming from you. :)

Angie said...

:)Making note to do more stupid faces.

Thanks girl! It's liberating. I am becoming my daughter's little home grown psychology project. I want to see her video now and watch her watch herself and see how she reacts!

I guess the point is that I make those faces because it's just what my face does when I talk. I'm ok with being animated. Doesn't bother me anymore. This was just a step to put something out there and not worry if anyone else doesn't like it because it's me.

You are freaking adorable. Your goofy faces are freaking adorable. Hold your fork any way you want to. Your smile is beautiful. Stop criticizing what a lot of people would kill to have - your charm!

You tell her, girl! She doesn't listen to me *wink*

I liked what you were talking about a lot. Self-acceptance is something I've had to work on a lot, and is a big part of why I'm reasonably happy today. It's also probably a big part of why I'm alive today, because I used to have a really bad drug problem and acceptance of myself, others, situations, and life in general is a big part of my recovery.

Also, that's one kick ass studio bed!

Angie said...

It was a great little exercise. I found it even more interesting when my daughter was asking me questions about how I felt about posting it and found that although we don't share much physically... the insecurities I never voiced... like being overly animated... were the same for her.
And thanks!

I listen but all I ever hear is the clicking of the keyboard!

The older I get the less I care what others think. I'm sort of preparing myself for the future when I plan to become queen of the red hat society. LOL :) BTW... The Sound and the Fury... very good book.

I think this was great. Which is a compliment that means something to me, cynical bastard that I am. It takes a lot of courage to do something like that, and I have to also say that you motivated me enough to actually watch the video FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER; ALMOST, I HAVE WATCHED THE VIDEO a blogger put up as a post.

Not that I count much for anything, but it meant that much to me. Carry on.

Angie said...

Do.Not.Make.Me.Cry. :) Kidding... For the record, you're not a bastard and the cynical part of you is what I like best!

Leauxra said...

I love it. And you look good, girl. Seriously. How can you have kids old enough to even ask questions?

I have been working on self-acceptance as well. It's hard. I don't know why I care what anyone else thinks. And apparently I am the only one that cares about my crooked face, and the fact that I look like I am baring my teeth and might eat you when I smile (my carnivore smile as I call it).

Animated faces are more interesting, and in my opinion, much more beautiful.

Angie said...

I've seen your pictures and you are gorgeous! I am definitely old enough to have kids this age, but most days I'm not grown up enough. :) Does that count? BTW- my teeth still have the serrations on them. Is that the same?

If I Were God... said...

I was so expecting a midwestern accent. (Aren't you from somewhere?) But you sound surprisingly normal!

WAIT... THIS WAS DUBBED! THAT'S why the words don't match! AH-HA!

Angie said...

Hmmm now I am wondering what Midwesterner's are supposed to sound! :)
