CoronaVLOG: This Week Was a Rollarcoaster – dealing with more lockdown news

There was a lot going on this last week and a bit! As so much of the last vlog was taken up by ‘DuvetGate’, this vlog covers slightly over a week and shows us trying to deal with the latest lockdown updates, me seeing myself on TV, Alex finally securing #RugbyWorldCup2023 tickets for us, me getting Alex some of my merch and us painting the shed. Exciting stuff! As Ronan Keating once famously said, (lockdown) is a rollercoaster and we’ve all just got to ride it.

On TikTok

This week, I published a short sketch every day on Tiktok, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

The first sketch, using a popular trending sound to explain how my name is spelled ๐Ÿคฃ
@clisare

I see these people as the Mrs Doyle of social media. No, Iโ€™LL SHARE! #instagram #sketch #fyp #irishhumour

โ™ฌ original sound – clisare
The second sketch talking about people who share each other’s stories over and over

For the second sketch, I tried using a caption app which auto creates captions and time them to the content. Captions are pretty important on TikTok, but they can take forever to create and time within the app. I’m not sure if this style of caption is liked on the app, however, and I got much more engagement with the next video with tiktok-native captioning. Which style of captioning do you prefer?

@clisare

How my first job interview in college went, when I was still using my first email address ๐Ÿ™ˆ .. wait for it ๐Ÿ˜†#emailaddress #fyp #sketchcomedy

The third sketch, based on a true story from my first college job interview (which happened to be with my now-husband!)

The sketch above was the best-recieved one of the week. I followed that one up with a reply to a comment, asking me to explain how the interviewer mentioned in the sketch became my husband – it’s a fairly simple story ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป

@clisare

Reply to @millenialnostalgia how my interviewer from my last video because my current husband. ๐Ÿ˜† #storytime #husband #emailaddress #ReplyToComments

Instagram:

On Instagram, I exposed myself as being an idiot, ratting myself out for not checking the tide before I tried to go for a swim! ๐Ÿ˜‚

I did get some recommendations in the comments for places I can try swimming without having to check the tides, so I’ll have another go soon. I much prefer surfing, but I don’t have a board and nowhere that rents them is open at the moment. ๐Ÿ˜ข

Prior to that, I got a nice snap with some deer in Phoenix Park in my first time going further than #5kfromhome since December! ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Previously on Instagram, I’d shared that I got access to Lightroom presets thanks to a collab with the Nicky Presets account. However, this week I decided that I’m going to start sharing the (completely) unedited pic, whenever I can(slash whenever I remember), in the carousel on Instagram alongside the edited pic, so that I can have a lovely feed and still feel like I’m not pulling the wool over anyone’s eyes or contributing as much to a kind of toxic “perfection” standard that exists on that god-forsaken app.

Podcast: Storytime With Clisare

This week, I had Fionn Collins on the podcast to share his story of having to go abroad for top surgery, catching covid on the flight home and then being refused healthcare on his return when post-surgery complications arose.

From my perspective, I was shocked to hear that trans people in Ireland are forced to fly abroad for top surgery, and even more shocked to find out that they are refused healthcare on their return because they did not get the surgery here at home. It feels to me very like the same injustice that we were fighting against throughout the Repeal campaign, which was fighting against Irish women having to fly to the UK to procure an abortion and then being refused healthcare on their return. Not only that, but Fionn also explained to me that the Repeal legislation is gendered (ie. specifically worded as “Irish women”) and so, trans men can be refused abortions in Ireland due to that wording. It feels wrong to me that we would leave trans men behind in our fight for bodily autonomy, and feels really wrong to me that trans men, who are already dealing with a transition and, in some cases, body dysmorphia, would be forced to carry a pregnancy to term through refusal of service. I’m really disappointed that the legislation was worded that way, that I, as a Repealist didn’t know this, and that there hasn’t been a more public outcry/pushback. I feel like it’s yet another example of why gender is a real problem. Why couldn’t the legislation be written as “Irish People”?!

So that’s a quick summary of the video content I’ve put out there this week. Of course, I’ve also shared stuff on Instagram stories and tweeted a hape of nonsense on twitter. Find me on your preferred social media at http://clisare.rocks/follow
