Me and the uphill climb that is editing software – a tragedy in two parts

This is what I get for trash talking my previous video editing software – the new one isn’t working for me. At all.

I think it’s a combination of me being generally incompetent and my computer being, well, ancient. Apparently, these programs tend to require a lot of your computer (how was I supposed to know that?) and mine simply can’t take the pressure. I came to this conclusion after struggling for an embarrassing amount of hours to get my video ready, while the program was actively working against me and my intentions. Eventually, I had to give up.

So now I’m moderately surly, comforting myself with some chocolate while I think about how to deal with this situation. As a result, I won’t be uploading a video today, or even this week, since we’re planning on going on a sailing trip within a couple of days. I know there’s no harm in that, as my Youtube channel is still just a “baby”, but it does feel a bit disappointing since I had planned on posting a video every week from the start.

Oh, well. Things like this happen from time to time, especially when trying out something new. (There has been about a half hour between the first couple of paragraphs and this one, btw, meaning that I’m out of chocolate and my mood is somewhat improved.)
