TAMPA, Fla. (CBS Tampa) — Casey Anthony has spoken out for the first time since her acquittal in her daughter Caylee’s death, expressing optimism for the future in an Oct. 2011 video that was released today.

In the nearly four-and-a-half minute long video diary that she recorded Oct. 13, 2011, she talks about how “it’s been a long time since I’ve been able to call something mine.

“I’m extremely excited that I’ll be able to Skype and obviously keep a video log, take some pictures and have something that I can finally call mine.”

Anthony, who has been in hiding since her acquittal and staying in Florida serving probation on an unrelated charge, says she will still be at that place “until at least February,” but expresses optimism for her future.

“Just a little surreal how much things have changed since July and how many things haven’t changed,” Anthony said in her video diary. “And the good thing is things are starting to look up. Things will be good, can only get better.”

Anthony did not mention her daughter Caylee, who was found dead in December 2008, five months after she was originally reported missing.

Anthony spent more than 1,000 days behind bars before she was acquitted in July 2011.
