WATCH IT: Casey Anthony's Video Diary

KHQ.COM - While Casey Anthony sightings have been scarce in the six months since she was cleared of killing her toddler daughter Caylee, the 25-year-old has resurfaced in a video that she apparently recorded herself in October.

"It's just a little surreal how much things have changed since July and how many things haven't changed," Anthony says in the 4 ½ minute video, which aired on TODAY Thursday. NBC News has confirmed that it is Anthony on camera.

Anthony's appearance is markedly different from her last public showing in the Florida courtroom as her "not guilty" verdict was read — she sports short, blonde locks and wears glasses. She revealed that she'll remain in her hiding spot "at least until the end of February." And as she talks about her new life, Anthony indicates this video diary may not be her last.

"I'm extremely excited," she says. "I'm excited that I'll be able to Skype and obviously keep a video log, take some pictures and that I have something that I can finally call mine," she says on camera. "It's been a long time since I've been able to call something mine."

Anthony doesn't address the sensational six-week murder trial that ended with her acquittal last July, but does express optimism in her new life as she serves out a year's probation in Florida on an unrelated charge.

"The good thing is things are starting to look up and things are starting to change in a good way. I just hope they stay — that things stay good, that they only get better. They'll only get better."

Anthony makes no mention of her daughter Caylee, first reported missing in July 2008 and found dead five months later. Nor does she discuss the more than 1,000 days she spent in jail before being acquitted. But she does speak of the loneliness of living in hiding — and says the video camera has become her friend.

"Now I in some ways have someone to talk to even when I am by myself so I am not bothering the poor dog who I have adopted and I love," she says.

And while Anthony likely got used to having cameras trained on her during her long, televised trial, she expressed awkwardness at taping herself.

"I don't know whether to look directly at myself or up," she says with a laugh. "It's a little scary because I hate being on camera."
