I know I've been posting a lot of video here for the last week or so but I can't help myself. Megan and Jack have been allowing me to capture on camera what I struggle to explain using words alone.
Megan's personality is an interesting mix. She is shy-sometimes almost painfully so. But when you are around her enough, there is a part of her that is an extrovert. It's like the walls eventually start to crumble. She's like me in that way. Shove me in a networking event, or a party where I don't know anyone, and I want to crawl out of my skin. But if I'm with a group of people I know and adore, I could stay out all night having the best time.
Jay used to be like this, too. He's much more social now and can take the awkward social situations in stride. He's almost grown out of his shyness. I remember when we first started dating. Depending on which of my friends I was talking to, they had totally different perceptions of Jay. My close friends who interacted with him a lot would always comment that he was one of the funniest people they ever met. Ask any of my friends at the outer edge of my inner circle if they thought Jay was hilarious, and they would look at me blankly and say something like, "Jay? He never says anything."
Anyway, I guess I love this video clip because it captures what Megan is like on the inside, with her inner circle. I just hope that as she gets older, more people get to see this side of her. Lately, her new "thing" is to make up songs. She's writing lyrics and even adds the melody to them. This is one example of her latest, uh..."creation". As a side note, she's been listening to our local hip hop station... A LOT. I can see some of that influence here in the video.
She starts off on a mysterious tone, with her eyes covered. She has a little bit of a mini Gwen Stefani feel, I think. I love how she keeps singing but including directions to me as part of the song, "Zoom, zoom, zoom out." I also love how she incorporates the wording on her shirt into her lyrics.
I'm not quite sure why she switches up mid-song and turns into a British talk show host but heck, when she requested that I zoom in "one touch", I obliged.
