This weekend was Pride around the country, so Sydney and I thought it’d be a perfect chance to take the camera out and try and film a vlog. I got probably about an hour of good footage of the parade and interesting pedestrians before the battery died (I forgot to bring a spare). I’ll be sure to put a video up on Facebook or YouTube this week of the experience. Besides that, I’ve gotten back to reading daily and waking up before 9 on the weekends.
