I have never really liked talking on an answer machine. If when phoning someone and it goes to answer phone I put the phone down rather than leave a message. I think it’s because I don’t like the sound of my own voice and think other people wouldn’t!
There is only one thing worse than an answer machine and that is talking on a video. I think it’s because you can see yourself as well as hearing yourself.
Jenny has asked me to take part in a promotional video and today was the day it was filmed.
It meant I had a day talking about how my life has changed this year.
I have always shied away from being filmed. I have never really been a person who wants to be noticed or the centre of attention. So to do this video was hard for me.
Driving there I was actually quite nervous. But once we got started I hardly noticed the camera. Jenny asked me questions and I answered them.
It didn’t take me long to feel comfortable about the situation. I talked about where I have come from and where I am now.
I actually got quite emotional a few times. Remembering where I was. It actually made me think I was talking about a totally different person. I got a little overwhelmed too at remembering that it was actually me and how much I have changed in 7 months.
