It wasn’t until I had decided on a topic and actually sat down in front of my camcorder when I realised that talking into a lens is harder than it looks. The “YouTube celebrity” is something of a phenomenon these days (I can list several public figures who make a living from pouring their heart out on film) and I think it’s an easy profession to scoff at, but there’s no denying that it takes something special to entice an audience to spend five minutes of their day watching you talk, two or three times a week.
I don’t claim to be able to emulate their complete comfortability on camera (although I think I’ve given it a pretty good shot) but what I do claim to be able to do is provide you with a real insight into student life. Without further ado, then – here’s the first is a series titled “First Year Worries” where I’ll cover every concern you could possibly have.
Accommodation’s a decent place to start, right?
I hope you enjoy the vlog (next time I’ll be covering Freshers) and as always, I’d love to hear from you if you’ve got any questions or further concerns. In the meantime, enjoy the summer sun while it’s here!
