Casey Anthony quietly slipped out of sight last July after being acquitted of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee. Now the 25-year-old has resurfaced in a video diary recorded in October in an unknown location.
In the four-minute video, which aired on the "Today" show Thursday, Casey looks into the camera and says, "It's just a little surreal how much things have changed since July, and how many things haven't changed."
Anthony, who dyed her hair blonde and wore glasses, revealed she will continue to hide out "at least until the end of February."
America's most hated woman continued, "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. It's been a long time since I've been able to call something mine."
Anthony makes no mention her murdered daughter or the highly publicized six-week murder trial she faced last year, but expressed hope for the future and her new life.
"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 remains on probation in Florida stemming from a conviction in a check fraud case while she awaiting trial on the murder of Caylee.
