Nothing, nothing, nothing, NOTHING is forever
My troops got massacred by the insectoid hive. There were simply far too many of them to fight off. Tanks, Thor heavy armor, Viking air superiority fighters, and my marines… all slaughtered mercilessly to twisted metal and ash..
3 months of no combat sure can waste a mind (and fingers)..
we lost this battle for this space platform today, but the war’s not over.
There will be more battles.
I have not played StarCraft for about 3 months..
I’m going to jump back in tonight, and see if I rage. want to test the fighting spirit. idk.
there are… better…. priorities… though…….
when i was a child i used to think teens were grown ups and when i was a teen i thought college students were grown ups and now that im a college student im just like what the hell is a grown up anymore
Now that I’m older than college age I’ve concluded that grown ups are a myth.
They are most definitely a myth.

dear Jesus, shake me. Shake me hard. I haven’t prayed anything dangerous in awhile and I need this. I need to be shaken.
Shake me until the air re-enters these lungs.
Let me be ready.
ready for your return!

honeymoon is an interesting term because an actual moon made of honey would imply space bees which is pretty horrifying

For some reason, recently I’ve been having the same conversation with a number of different people. Here’s pretty much how it goes:
Friend: Hey man, how’s the YouTube thing going?
Me: It’s not too bad. I love what I’m doing but so far the progress has been a lot slower than I anticipated.
(at this point, you can tell that they’re only saying “hm” because they’re trying to figure out a way to nicely word the next question)
Friend: Have you… have you ever thought about doing [insert occupation here]? It’s not as risky, and you can make a much steadier income. And you can even do your YouTube thing on the side!
Me: Even though that sounds interesting, I’m actually really committed to making this YouTube thing work out. Thanks for the suggestion though!
Me: Well, it was nice talking to you! Bye now!
I know you guys mean well, and I appreciate your concern, I really do! You guys have the best intentions for me and just want to see me succeed.
But I guess what I’m trying to say is that… I’ve also given a lot of thought to my career, and I understand all the risks of what I’m doing. I also realize that the journey to a stable income is going to be a rocky one. And I know that to you, my career path makes no sense.
But the reason I’m doing this very simple and can be boiled down to 4 main reasons:
- I love it and this is my gosh-darn dream. I have loved every moment of it and I want to be doing it for the rest of my life, full time. & I will regret it if I don’t take this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to chase that dream.
- Money right now, at this very moment is not important to me. I have enough savings to last me a while, and I’m okay with digging into them.
- I know that money matters eventually. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. There is a feasible revenue stream if I can grow a large enough audience. Typically, the main source of income for YouTubers is ads, sponsorships, and speaker appearances. (So hey.. if you have an event you want me to speak at — book me! firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Finally, what I’m doing is the kind of value that I want to add to this world. It’s the kind of content I wish was available to me when I was growing up. And it’s the kind of content that random people tell me they are so happy to watch.. to know that they’re not alone and that there’s hope on the other side. And I love that I can help make someone’s day all the way across the country by just posting a video to YouTube.
So if you really do want to help me, please help me chase my dreams! You can do so by sharing all of my videos when they come out. By telling people about what I do. It doesn’t hurt to click on those ads when they pop up ;). And if you have any suggestions on how I can grow my audience or make my content better, I’m all in for that too.
My love to you,
so neatly organized! look at how the icons fit into areas on the screen!
come to think of it.. almost all my desktops are pretty somber in tone..
lots of greys and desaturation….
