The Camera Is Not My Friend

My video shoot for National Fitness Center was this morning. I was up late last night practicing what I was going to say, as well as this morning. I was a nervous wreck, to say the least.
Just when I started getting semi-comfortable with what I needed to say, I found out that it was going to be a question and answer type of thing. I never got the email that everyone else got about what all was going to happen today. The girl felt really bad and I kept reassuring her it was ok. However, because I never got the email, I never knew I was suppposed to wear my gym clothes. I was the only one dressed up.
So, while everyone got filmed doing their favorite workout, my workout clips consisted of my feet getting filmed dancing and me fake laughing on an exercise ball. Lol! Please, try to imagine how goofy this looked. Haha! :o)
When it came time to do the interview, I was very impressed with how professional everything was. The three people doing the questions and video were super nice and made me feel as comfortable as I could have felt in that setting.
I was so nervous and it REALLY showed. Even though I knew how to answer the questions they were asking me, the words just didn't come out right and most of the time I just kind of froze and forgot what questions they asked or forgot what I was saying in the middle of saying it. It was BAD! Lol.
Because they were so nice, they assured me that I did a great job and that the video guy would edit everything and make me look great ... we shall see! My face also decided it wanted to break out really badly today, which was wonderful. I sure hope I don't look as stupid as I felt.
After today, I don't have high hopes that I will win but there's always a chance. I haven't completely given up hope. I know this sounds corny but I'm already a winner in my book for getting this far. We're supposed to find out in a few weeks who the winners are. The NFC higher-ups are going to be the ones picking the winners. Once I see the video, and IF I like it ok, I'll share it with you guys. If not, well ... then I won't. Don't get your hopes up about seeing it. Ha! :-P
I'm still not positive about what all they plan on doing with the videos and all of that (they told me but I was too nervous to process everything). I hope I gave you all a good laugh for today. :-D
Your foot-dancing friend,
