Bad Luck or Bad Timing?

As you may know, I created this blog so that I could have a place to share my original songs.  I have yet to post any of my songs here, but I believe with all of my heart that this dream will become a reality one day soon. 

A couple of weeks ago, I was so excited because I planned to post a video of me singing the very first song that I ever wrote, I Will Win.  I got out the video camera, picked up my guitar and started singing and playing my song.  After singing my song a few times (and by a "few" I mean about 50 times), I finally had a take that I was really proud of and was excited to share it with you.
As soon as I was done recording, I took the memory card out of the video camera so that I could download the video onto my computer.  I downloaded about fifty videos from that memory card, but none of them were the video that I had just done.  I checked the video camera again, and it turned out that the video I needed was stored on the internal memory of the camera.  I almost panicked, but regained my composure when I saw a USB cable lying next to my computer.  I quickly plugged the USB cable into my camera hoping that I could download the video onto my computer that way.  Well, that didn’t work either.  The camera just kept saying “Download In Progress…” After about 20 minutes of staring at that message on the camera, I gave up.

I was bummed.  I thought for sure this would be the time where I would finally post a video of me singing one of my songs.  But, for whatever reason, I can’t seem to get that video off of my camera!  I’m starting to wonder why stuff like this keeps happening to me.  Is it bad luck, or is it just not the right time?

In truth, I don’t really believe in “luck,” so I can safely disregard that option.  I’m more inclined to believe that maybe this just isn’t the right timing for me.  Maybe there is a lesson that I need to learn first...I don't know.  No matter what though, I trust that this dream of me sharing my songs on my blog will come to pass one day.  I’m not giving up just yet.

By the way, if you happen to know how I can download a video from my camera’s internal memory onto my computer, please let me know.  I'm sure it's possible, I just don’t know how to do it!


  1. Ahhh man! That's a bummer--sorry you couldn't get it downloaded. :( I have no idea how to do that stuff, wish I could help!

    We'll still be here though when the time is right. :)
