Hi guys! Guess what?!?! I’m on YouTube now! I took the plunge and finally created a YouTube channel and made videos. But I didn’t just create one channel, I created TWO! Yes, you read that right. Two. Why two, you might ask? Simple. One is for crafting, my love. And the other is ASMR. What is ASMR? It sounds sorta kinky, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not. But it is soothing to the senses. ASMR stands for Audio Sensory Meridian Response, and it basically occurs when you hear sounds or see visions that please you. They give you goosebumps or tingles.
Let me give you some examples in my case, and look for these examples in video form as well since I am planning on filming these sounds.
1) Remember when you were a kid (or still as an adult) and you would take a bath? Why laying in the bath, you would submerge your head all the way down, eyes closed or open, didn’t matter, and you would just… listen? It was like being in a submarine, or at least what a submarine sounds like from what you’ve seen in the movies. That empty space sound. I love that sound and it gives me tingles. Looking back, I remember submerging my head and listening, then feeling tingles, but I always thought it was just the water entering my ears. If our tub were working now, I would totally get in there!
2) I love, love, love seeing and hearing my husband peel an apple. I know, I know! Really?! Really, Jackie? An APPLE?! Yep, reeeeeaaalllyyy!!! He doesn’t use a mechanical peeler, he just uses a knife, and he peels them in one continuous motion so that the apple peel is pretty long. And instead of his hands being in a bent motion while he peels, his index finger is straight up, guiding the knife as he peels it.
Whenever baby Henry wants an apple and Daddy is home, I ask him to peel it just so I can listen and watch.
So those are just two of the sounds that I really enjoy.
Whenever you have a moment, check out my two YouTube channels and if you like what you’ve seen, be sure to like, comment, and subscribe! I plan on making more videos from here on out.
That’s all for now.
