I don’t do very well in front of a camera. My cheeks flush red, my eyes get glassy, and overall I look (and act) completely stoned. Not the ideal look to have on a children’s television show. Luckily a combination of the lighting and the resolution of my webcam disguises this pretty well.
Something else that’s disguised pretty well is the uncomfortable anxiety I’m hiding behind my eyes. I feel awkward talking on the phone. I feel awkward being on a webcam. Talking into a webcam is the ultimate awkward combination of communication for me (especially when I only receive audio). I almost think I would do better in a face to face interview. We’ll see how it goes when I’m [eventually] on Conan O’Brien.
Anyway, I’m just happy it didn’t turn out to be something to post to /r/cringe.
