Last night I had a dream. It was quite powerful. Just to give you a preview so you can follow along better, the theme of my dream was basically:
We started this to help people. To give them a place to go. A place where they can be understood.
Well… I didn’t actually lose $30 dollars. I know exactly where it went. Into the pockets of a Chinese scam artist!
But first, a prologue.
Years ago – I mean years ago – I became intrigued by all the internet ads promising free iPods or laptops. In my mind there were two thoughts on the matter:
A while back I came up with an idea. It was an idea for a company that sold technology that made sense. You no doubt have a piece of technology in your house (whether it’s a keyboard, a washing machine, or a toaster) that would just make more sense if it did “THIS” or it did this in “THAT WAY”… My company would produce logical technologies. I’d call it: Logitech…
I recently began uploading some video game clips to YouTube on a new channel. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. So, I finally decided to do it… but just for fun. No hard work. Just fun.
And of course, my nephew likes to play Rocket League. So, I showed him some of the videos I had uploaded. They were clips of saves, goals, and other important plays in the game. Nothing fancy, some of them way too long, and there’s one where the recording app didn’t record any video but I attempted to salvage it anyway and make a joke out of it that my nephew didn’t really understand.
One day he tells my mom that I’m going to be rich because I’m a YouTuber.
He’s young and doesn’t understand how all that stuff works. So, in a way it was kinda cute.
But it was also kind of uplifting. Here’s this young kid who thinks my lame little videos are on par with the likes of actual gamer YouTubers. He thinks we’re the same.
So, I continue to upload some videos, just clips and highlights right now. And who knows… maybe one day I will be a rich YouTuber. I mean, none of the other YouTubers out there are rich because of YouTube… but maybe I can be the first?
P.S. – Should I become a famous YouTuber or a famous blogger? Hmm, tough one…
Growing up, my family belonged to a neighborhood pool. Well, I’m not exactly sure what you call it. It was a private pool; you had to have a membership to use the pool and take advantage of it’s many amenities. But it was near a neighborhood, kids would ride their bikes to the pool, some families would walk to the pool, but yes most drove to the pool. However, the health department still considers it a public space… and I’m sure it’s not so they can regulate it and collect tax money or anything…
My whole life has been a series of accomplishments. Up until now.
Let me explain my grief today.
It’s not that impressive, but here it is.
