My LIVE Youtube video was a mess and disappointment

Pots from this past kiln opening
How can I get so mentally fatigued over this LIVE YouTube Video stuff? That stuff whipped me today, but I will dust myself off and get to learning it before I try again. Didn't realize I recorded the video without volume lol. I had to use Google Hangout to do the video and got feedback so I muted YouTube and left the mic on, in Hangouts. I think the mic was up too loud or the volume and it echoed everything I said. Well geez...I will do a video next of the pots themselves. Here is a glimpse of what I pulled out.

Just a few pictures of the kiln load. I will be doing another video which will be a slide show so that everyone can see what these pots look like up close and what I used on them. 

Alpaca Mugs in this mixture
I was making a bowl one night and it flopped on me. So I cut it all, making some test strips and cut the bottom out, as you can see below. I got to thinking that even when I get all messed up, G-d can still use me because he is the potter and I am the clay. He continuously molds me and makes me into what he wants me to be. So with that thought, arose this piece. I don't like how the bottom color came out, but at least I can read it after glazing it. I glazed the test strips and wrote those colors on the back of my test strips along with how many coats I used. Well, the sharpie burnt out. I will need to buy another underglaze pencil. I somehow have lost mine over the years. I plan to use these pieces as an art piece. I think I can pretty much figure out what I used. 

Yes, he can use all of us, no matter how broken we are!
