Happy Sunday everyone. I trust your weekend has been spent either relaxed and chilled or busy and productive. Hopefully not just in our virtual world. I’ve been productive making a video for my rl and honestly who would have guessed how hard that might be?
I may appear at times confident but honestly staring at myself making a video is quite daunting to me.
I managed late today as the sun was setting to get that emailed off to the people expecting it.
I cannot say at the moment why but apparently on the 26th October I can. Don’t worry I’ll remember to do so as I’m excited to want to share.
Right now though I’m seeking a lift outta here and to the future. Whose coming?

So I had a multitude of issues trying to upload Coffee with Isa to YouTube.
Then I realized actually by integrating the virtual me it caused the upload to crash each time as when I removed the majority of the virtual overlay, finally after 3 attempts last night and then another 4 coming home today. Job done.
