I met Daphne through LEF, an English-language student theatre society of which we were both members at some point. She was one of the first people who -- when I started thinking about creating my own Youtube channel -- supported me, and also my first subscriber. We have been planning to do a collab ever since I became a Youtuber, as she revived her channel (to which you should all subscribe, of course!) a few months before me. Anyway, after months of only talking about it and occassionally mentioning a potential date, we finally got together and created the above video, in which I try my hand at the First Sentence Challenge. You can watch Daphne's attempt on her channel. While you're at it, please take a moment to admire my new video intro and outro, which were created by my very talented graphic designer friend Eveline Verburg, whose information is in the description of the video. She owns her own company, which means you can totally commission her to make something for you, too!
On Sunday, I went over to my sister's place to film this video, which has been up since yesterday. This challenge was originally created by Joel of Joel Books (as was the original Book Tower Challenge), and I was tagged to do this by Myrthe of AnotherBookWorld, a fellow Dutch booktuber who is in a Whatsapp group with me and a bunch of other Dutchies. Although I had fun making this video - I ended up with more blooper footage than actual footage - I definitely didn't anticipate the amount of pressure there would be! It's very stressful to have someone sit there with a stopwatch while you are desperately flicking books across the table, all the while singing the alphabet song in your head. This video also marks my sister's Youtube debut, so please be nice and don't make any comments about what she calls her 'death stare'. Let's all remember how awkward our first videos were! Mine certainly was. I hope you enjoy watching my attempt at this challenge!
