Vlogemotions is a way for everyone to come out of their shell and express the emotions that they have felt in the past week.
Tim over and Fort Thompson is running the whole thing, and I've decided to participate in it.
The rules are simple:
The Rules:

1. Post a video at least 1 minute in length but no longer than 3.

2. Speak about the strongest emotion you felt that week and why.

This can be joy, happiness, fear, sadness, embarrassment, humility, anger, etc. Whichever emotion you felt the strongest talk about this. Do so with passion and hold nothing back. This will give your readers the opportunity to get to know you better. It will also make your blog more appealing because people will want to come back and see your videos.

3. Put your blog into the Mr. Linky at The Fort so that all others can view your vlog posts.

4. Come back every week with a new vlog post and a different emotion.

This week, my emotions will probably bum you out. But he asked for honesty, and that's all I can give.
Oh, and there's also a camera in the mix for the best video. While mine won't be the best, it's still an important thing to share your emotions.
I embedded some music over my video, but you can still hear every word I'm say.
So now, prepare to be bummed out.
(Btw, Tim, that hand-held camera would come in handy right about now. My webcam mic shitted out on me, and I had to use a camera where I can't see myself. It was horrible.)

There's still time to jump on the bandwagon and participate, so get to it.

Woot first commenter on this!

I think that was a great vlog post and should totally win! Your webcam is good too (I threw mine away and stomped on it). :P

::big hug:: Sounds like you need one! And you totally do have friends that support you - just look at all our lovely comments. :)

You will be accepted into a great college, how would they not want someone as awesome as you?

Drew's friend sounds like a prick, so treat him how he treats you and be bitchily nice... it works for me :)

Hope you are having a little bit of a better day!

First of all, you are absolutely beautiful. I mean it, gorgeous. I mean, you are beautiful in your pictures, but those don't even do you justice!! Breathtakingly beautiful!

Okay, I'm sorry you are feeling this way. It is not a fun way to live. Being stressed out sucks. Have you tried yoga? Meditation?

I'm sorry you are living in fear with what will come with Drew. I don't think fear is a good way to start off a relationship. I think you need to talk through these things with him. PS I hate stupid friends of the boyfriend...I know EXACTLY what you mean. When Josh and I were dating one of his friends decided to tell him that I was hitting on him so that Josh would break up w/ me....

And hello?? You are a 16 year old in college! What university wouldn't want you?!

Your voice sounds so soothing! I loved meeting you via vlog.

People who make you feel bad, i.e, don't deserve a second thought.

I hope thinks get better for you.

You did a great job showing your emotions. I think I felt every one of them while I was listening.

((Hugs)) Very awesome vlog!

Kristina P. said...

You have such a great voice!

I'm sorry you've been experiencing all these things. I hope that you can have at least one supportive person in your life.

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

Wow! You have experienced alot this week and your video is amazing at showing EXACTLY how you are feeling.

I believe that you will begin to work everything out. It is tough when friends and even boyfriends friends are not supportive.

I will be back to check in..this is the 1st time I have visited and I think you look like a pretty cool gal so I will become a follower to get your feeds!

Great JOB!!!! You have a great presence in front of the camera!

Carmen said...

I have to say that I admire you for being so open on a public blog. Don't worry about getting into good colleges because you will get into one. (Just remember that there are good and selective schools that are not ivies and you should be fine)

I also wanted to make a weird comment: I like your voice. I know that sounds uber weird, but I really hate my own voice and everytime someone asks me to repeat something I've said or I hear myself on a tape I get reminded of the hatred I have towards the way my voice sounds and I kinda cringe a little. Lol

Oh and none of my mouse's babies survived because they were for a bio experiment. We were tracking the way mice inherit colors and everytime a new generation matured our teacher would have us hand over the extra mice to be etherized, frozen, and fed to his snake(s). I didn't like that part of the experiment, but couldn't possibly take home all of the mice (and my dad complained incessantly about the one I did bring home). Supposedly they're doing the same experiment but with plants next year.

Hi, coming over from Tims. You are a beautiful young women. My heart goes out to you. Fear is not of the Lord. I leave you with one of my favorite verses. Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you, and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future."

Wish you the best!

Tim said...

I knew this carnival would so fit you! That was SOO great! The others are so right about your voice. You sound like a spokesmodel. Your enunciation is impecable.

I so felt every bit of your frustration and anxiety. Of course I already knew most of it and why. I am keeping you in my prayers, and know that life is too short to sweat the small stuff. Try and live life to its fullest one day at a time and forget what others say about you because they only dislike you because they are jealous. Besides who wouldnt be?

I so look forward to all of your vlog post in the future.

Love and Prayers,


Sarah said...

That was a good vlog! I am sorry that you feel the way you do, I remember all of those feelings, both when I was your age...and like 3 years ago (at 28 years old!) All I can say is that I'm pretty sure things will get better. You are worrying about things that I think are pretty normal to worry about, even though it sucks ass. And as far as the's worth a shot right? For many people, they actually do help without turning you into a zombie...might as well try it. *Hugs*

Dawn @ P.S.He loves you.. said...

Making the rounds from the blog carnival..I have to say your vlog really touched me ..made me slow down and listen.

I won't preach to you as that's not what your looking for what I will say is those concerns every one of them can be given to the ONE who knew you before you were formed in your mothers womb..and still today HE will take your hand and guide you through the FEAR

Showing you that you can trust HIM to give you the best this life has to offer..but this can only happen with HIM.

All things work to the good of those who serve the Lord!

You will be blessed!

You were amazing Lee. First it was so good to put a voice to your face I loved that, you have such a sweet voice!

I totally understood everything you said Lee and I think you know it, man I feel like you are one of my little sisters right now, I just wanna hug ya to death and tell you I AM here for you. You love Drew and I will support ya, you wanna rip him apart I will add a jerk in there and then when you change your mind, I will be on the two of your side again! ((HUGS))

Liz said...

I really enjoyed your vlog. You should do these more often. You have such a soothing voice. I wouldn't worry too much about Drew's friend. Not everyone is going to like you and that is their problem not yours. Also, don't worry about time. I would love to be with my husband every minute of the day but work is a necessity. Be happy that you are dating someone that does work and wants to work. That is such a great quality in someone. Savor the time you do get to spend together!

Hi Lee - I'm over from Tim's place riding the carnival ride.

Listen to your heart and go with your gut. I'm sorry that you're feeling so much anxiety and stress and sadness. Next time around hopefully I'll get to see your radiant smile!

Beth in NC said...

I'm sorry you're having such a sad time. I pray things will turn around for the better really soon.

You did a great job on your vlog!

Jess said...

That's really nicely done and I actually really enjoyed watching it. I often find vlog posts quite dull.
I wouldn't put yourself out of the running for the camera. I'm not a follower of that blog myself so I'm not really sure what Tim is looking for, but I think with your no-waffle aproach, the interesting angle and the subtle background music you just could!

I don't always comment on your posts, but I always read them - I think you strike a very good balance between humour and your life. It makes it interesting and lively. And besides, you sound like you could do with a cheery comment!
I haven't had any particular experience from the boy point of view. However, I'm thinking cold, polite and frequent sweet/evil smiles are the way to go concerning Drew's friend.
Education is more my forte, and whereas I'm not American and only know what popular culture and the Sims has taught me about the US, you sound like a bright girl who will get a place at a good college.
Until next comment, I hope your life improves!

Hi. I came over from Tim's for the Vlogemotions carnival. I was really touched by your post. I used to live in Vegas and I know how hard it is to meet genuine people there.

It is really easy for people to dispense advice when they are not your situation. Sometimes friends get frustrated when they think they know what's best for you and you don't heed their advice. You need to do what's best for you regardless of their thoughts on your boyfriend. I hope you start to feel a little better about the whole situation.

Angela said...

Excellent Vlog! Normally I would jump right in with my own but I'm going thru one of the hardest times in my life ... it's not something I can share ... and I don't think anyone would want to see me blubber away. I'll keep watching yours. :)

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

Great vlog.....I am not good enough to do that yet.

I enjoyed reading your blog today.

I am still so new to the land of blog, but so loving reading others stories. Everyone has a story and so many of them are so touching....
Hope you will stop by for a visit.
The May give-away has started and this month there will be 10 winners. I will be blogging from Disney World soon...

Summer said...

You are adorable, and I'm so sad that you aren't doing well.

Hang in there...I promise it does get better. And any kind of antidepressant that you may try will only even your brain to a level playing field. =) You won't be doped up, I promise!

Hugs to you!
