Aaaaaannd, in case there’s anyone else out there like me who needs to read things to fully process them, lol.
Transcript of David’s vlog:
Hey everybody * eyes look side to side* it’s … David here! I’m … not dead! I’m still here. I’m still alive. I … am… still, well, I haven’t made a video blog in a long time. I’ve been kinda lazy with that. I don’t know if I’m sorry about it ‘cause I don’t like making them (laughs) but… I just take forever to make them. I don’t know how to edit. Being two years away from technology has not helped with that but I thought it’d be good to make one to let you know that I’m still here that I’m not lazy* and just sitting around my house… but I’m working… I am writing. I’m [sings J ] “getting to know me, figuring out who I am … ‘cause I’ve never done that before.”
Ya, I’m doing things … if you want to know what I’m doing literally right now, I just finished exercising, well, I didn’t just finish, but then I went to the piano and got distracted with music ideas and then my grandma came over and she brought me this delicious lunch (shows empty plate)… well, it’s not here, this is what’s left of what I ate. But there’s nothing like grandma’s love and tasting that and her cooking.
Ah, what else? … I … am back from my mission. I already said that. You already know. But it’s been so nice getting to take this time, that I’ve NEVER taken before, because before I just had no idea what I was doing … “I’ll just make everybody happy, even though everybody wants different things and everyone was rushing me.” Just making all those higher-up people, trying to please them, but I realize, YOU KNOW WHAT? That’s not what I want to do, that’s NEVER what I wanted to do but I just felt like I was supposed to… BUT NOW (starts walking)… I AM BACK… the mission helped me not be so self-conscious, believe in myself a little more and, uh, I feel fresh (big smile, sparkly eyes, the whole deal).
And, well, I went to L.A. It freaked me out. Because, after two years of not thinking about yourself, just helping other people, and all of that. To coming back to the entertainment world where it’s all about YOU, and how important you are, and letting everybody know that, and how great you are, and everybody look at you – it was weird.
And that’s why I came straight back to Utah. Found amazingly talented people here, locally, who have done a lot of really national, international things… but they’re here… hidden GEMS of people that I’m getting to work with.
Next week I’ll be going to somewhere that I absolutely LOVE, getting to work with people that I LOVE (big smile). Can’t wait to see them again (twinkly eyes thrown in) and work with them once again. I’ll let you know more about it when I’m there.
But just been … WRITING (bangs piano… like a BOSS!) … nothing, well. It’s not all quite done yet, so I’m not going to show it to you yet. I’m, but I want it to be right. And I feel like instead of just rushing and trying to just “oh, I’ll just throw things at people so that they’re happy,” I feel like it’ll be better, even though I’m slow, and taking time. It’ll be right, and it’ll be better for everybody. And I’ll feel a lot better about it. Whether I make mistakes, at least they’re my mistakes, and not everybody else’s, that they made for me.
SO, I appreciate everything you say… on Twitter and other things… I’ve gotten back, and there’s Instagram now, and who knows what’ll come up next but (looks down)
I read your things, your comments, how you don’t like my hair short or that you’re excited about the new music that’ll be coming or what am I up to, how am I doing?
I’m doin’ great, how’re YOU doing? I hope you have a GREAT weekend and I uh… lost my train of thought, but that’s okay. I guess it’s a sign that this is all I need to say.
So. That is it. And. Until next time. Ciao.
* please point me to who called him lazy so I can throttle them
