dying4bread sent me the video with a message:
“các bạn ơi tớ làm xong sub rồi Engsub+vietsub, một số chỗ bị hỏng chút, nhưng tớ làm cái này mệt bằng chết, tớ ko còn kiên nhẫn để ngồi sửa nữa @@”
No, you did great, dying4bread. Not any one of us can do it, let alone do better than you do. So, thank you very much for spending a lot of your summertime making the video for us!
Transcript of It’s not Goodbye vlog:
It’s Not Goodbye
Video blog by David Archuleta
Hey everyone. It’s David here. Just wanted to make one more video blog while I was home before I leave on my mission. This will be the last one that I make just from home, you know, and being able to be free and just not as a missionary and stuff. I just wanted to kind of let you guys know first of all just where my mindset is right now a little bit. I guess I can’t explain everything.
It’s been a very emotional last week. I was able to have a lot of family and a lot of friends come. I gave my farewell kind of talk, my last talk, this Sunday to my neighbors and my friends and my family. It’s very personal. It’s a decision everyone knows about but it’s still like a very personal thing and I wanted to keep it that way, you know. I hope you guys respect that, and you guys have, so I appreciate that. It was just an amazing experience. So special having all those people, seeing them. Having it just here in my neighborhood and having all those people who’ve meant so much to me throughout the years all there. It was just really cool having an audience full of people that I have known through the small times and the big times.
I’ve been trying my best to get ready and prepare. Been packing up. There’s a lot of stuff you need. I mean, you’re moving away for two years so it’s quite the task, I guess. But I’ve had a lot of help and I’ve really appreciated all the help from all those people who’ve been there helping guide me and give me tips and advice and just helping me get ready for this next phase. But, ummmm, it sounds like my family’s home.
But anyway, I’m gonna miss everybody. I’m gonna miss my family. I’m gonna miss being able to keep in touch with them. But also since this video’s for you guys, I would like to let you guys know that I’m gonna miss being able to talk to all of you and let you know what’s going on, sharing my thoughts and weird, random things that I’m doing or thinking about. I appreciate that you guys have still been here. I was able to see the #DA2014 video that so many of you made, too. I just really appreciated it. I watched the whole thing. Seeing just what you guys say and it means so much to know that you guys continue showing your support. What memories I have with me from the last four or so years from all of you, and I just want to thank you for that. I wouldn’t be here without all of you guys doing what you do. It just means a lot to have been able to bring you guys – or, it’s more like you guys have brought me on this journey and I appreciate being able to share everything that I’ve learned and experienced with you guys because of you guys, if that makes sense. I hope that you guys know that I will still be giving my best and trying my best to see what I can do for you guys even while I’m gone. It’s gonna be crazy.
I am going to South America and I’m excited to be able to be more a part of the Spanish culture, the Latin culture, and things. I hope that you guys will still respect and understand that this is a very personal decision at the same time. I appreciate you guys being respectful of what I’ll be doing and what I’ll be trying to focus on. You know, just respecting that I’ve been able to bring you guys on this journey so far but I hope that you guys will respect just that this will be more of a personal thing, that I’m trying to focus on something else now, not my career, not trying to do music. I’ve done as much as I can for you guys over here, but while I’m over there I hope that you guys will appreciate that. I will love to hear what’s going on from you guys every now and then. My Road Manager, Kari, will be taking care of my Twitter account so she’ll be updating things for me. She’ll be letting me know what’s going on.
Other than that, I’m gonna be trying my best to focus on the people over there and more one-on-one experiences. It’s gonna be a big sacrifice but I’m doing this to be able to have more of that one-on-one time with my Heavenly Father, with God. I hope that you guys will respect that it’s time for me to work on my relationship with Him and I need to give Him the time that I have been wanting to and have never given myself the time to do. So I hope that you guys will respect that.
I’m sorry; I’ve been like blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, rambling, and talking and stuff. I’m so grateful to you guys for all you do, for hearing your stories. It really keeps me going and it makes this all worth it. I will see you guys when I get back and I hope that you guys enjoy the new music that will be coming out that we’ve worked hard on. We’ve done our best to make it all it can be before I leave. But, I will see you all in two years. God bless. Take care.
