Putting yourself out there is not easy. It’s actually tiring, frustrating, and can be mentally taxing. I think that a lot of us started doing things in quarantine, thinking that it wouldn’t be so long, and the next thing we knew we’re over a year in.
Brie Larson started a YouTube channel in quarantine, but on July 1st, uploaded a new video and let the world know that she was taking a break.
Brie has a busy life and with movies returning to filming its expected that she wouldn’t have as much time as she will be working.
“So I did not think that I would hit the one-year mark on this to be quite honest. I didn’t know how I’d feel putting myself out there weekly in this way,” Brie said in the video on her channel. “I think some of you know that I started this channel, I started thinking about it before the pandemic, and it was because I needed to just like…I needed to shake it up. I needed to feel like I could just be silly and normal.”
“It’s the one-year anniversary, and at this exact time, I’m going to have to slow down on this. I can’t keep up on doing videos weekly. I’ve got to go back to my job. My first job. My acting job,” she continued. Personally, we’re like yes please, we need more movies.
“I am sad about it. This is not the last video. I’m going to do more, it’s just not going to be able to be on a weekly schedule,” Brie continued. “I would love to keep making things. Keep collaborating with people. The podcast Learning Lots will still be going bi-weekly, so I hope you’ll check that out. I’ve been doing it with my best friend Jessie. It’s just been a true delight.”
We’re excited for all the things that Brie will do, can’t wait to listen to her podcast and look forward to whatever movies she makes.
