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.

I asked myself a question tonight. As I sat on the front porch swing, swaying in the cool spring breeze, I asked myself a very important question.
If you could do anything, what would you do?
Instead of looking at your job as a day full of tasks you barely get to finish, if you get to finish them at all, look at your job as a day full of people you get to influence.
I feel like every day goes by and there’s so much to get done at work, but things never get completed.
And that’s ok.
Don’t fret too much.
It’s going to be ok.
Besides, does it really matter that much?
P.S. – you are most likely replaceable. So, be thankful you haven’t been replaced yet.
A while back I wrote an article asking what else the iPhone could actually do. Well, some of those things actually came true. Because I’m a genius and can predict the future.
