i mentioned these two before. i don’t know where, when and why the idea came up but some time ago teresa wrote a medley, made out of different beyonce songs. julia and her are probably the biggest beyonce fans one can imagine. they even drove to bratislava to attend her concert :)
anyways, we decided to make a video – a tribute to queen b. for being an awesome and strong woman.
making this video brought up some discussions about self-expression, perfectionism, and how NOT to take yourself too seriously. Doing this blogthing for more than four years now, i often thought about how my live looks trough this tiny window. i do write about the bad things that happen and how stressful life seems sometimes but i just post pictures i like. only when i think i look alright and projects that made me proud enough to post. I don’t want to create a picture of a perfect life over here, these things i post are just the ones i’m most proud of. but it’s true that it might create a not so clear view of my life and myself.
of course i have this not so hidden agenda to put myself out there, to be present, to show what i can do and to get approval. but it’s not to show off… i started this to share my ideas. it grew into something bigger but the thought is still the same.
and if you take this video for instance, this is far from perfect. but exactly like someone said to me today: “it was brave to put it out there.” i didn’t take it as an insult. because it’s true. it was brave to show the small web-world we have access to, that we like queen b., that we like to do fun things together and to be proud of it. if people think this is somehow a blurred view of how life really is, they are right. but it’s alright to show these parts… it’s ok to have this urge to share things with others and let’s face it, who want’s to see the boring parts of an everyday life? it’s much more fun, to laugh together with us about our performance :)
