Now


If you ever think to ask, 'Vivian, what are you doing now?', this is where you will find my answer. This page is inspired by Derek Sivers, whose intentional decisions I find extremely moving. I would totally read your Now page, if you feel up to making one yourself. 

As for me, I am...

Making videos

My goal is to make 152 videos, before I evaluate my roadmap again. I usually peck away at the footage from Monday to Thursday. When the groovy music and rainbow text are in their right places, I upload the video and schedule it for the following Monday.

I find that by making a video every week, I am killing several birds with one stone, such as:
  • Learning how to tell a story
  • Encouraging myself to try new things
  • Learning to take periodic breaks and not burn out
  • Finding out what sort of YouTuber I am not
  • Learning to be consistent
  • Learning to talk to the camera
  • Allowing my kind of people a chance to find me
Why 152 videos? This statistic will explain that.

Weaving words

I have always journaled, but they are pages for my eyes only. I began writing stories in the captions of my Instagram posts, but something about the attention-grabbing medium felt inappropriate. I created this blog to write for me. Since then, I have gradually increased the frequency of my writing habit. My current pace is writing once a week, on this blog and my newsletter. I like the momentum that this practice provides.

As any writer would tell you, reading and writing go hand-in-hand. Here is where I keep a list of the books I have read. I am now reading On Writing Well by William Zinsser. He feels like a faraway kindred spirit and an excellent mentor. I am always on a look out for people like that.
