Project Progress #1

Welcome to another blog post. I’ll make sure to try and keep this one “Short” for the sake of your time!

My good friend from high school and I have decided to work on a project together. I don’t want to spoil anything so I won’t announce the specifics, but for now I can give a quick overview.

We started this project recently and are almost done with the models for it. The models are simple for now, but I hope to add detail to them as time moves on. This project requires a few main assets along with some minor ones as well. For the most part we are trying to keep it as simple as possible so we don’t go overboard with the models and the rest of the project.

Below are a few examples of the models that have been made:

It’s an axe! This will be used in our project, for now we have no clue how to implement it.

A simple barrel for all of our aesthetic needs!

For now the project progress is going extremely well. We have been working on this project for close to 3 weeks so far and using my knowledge along with Mark’s, we can make this work in the end.

A Great Week

In this blog I will be over viewing the entire week in sections. This has by far been one of the best weeks of my life and I want to make an entry about it.

Monday:

Nothing much really happened on Monday except for getting the chance to record during the school day. We had 10 periods in our school each 41 mins long. 8th-10th period I had free so I got the chance to go home and record during the day while no one was home. It Felt good.

Tuesday:

The day moved quickly after taking a test and 2 finals in the same day. (Physics, Economics, English) I was sure I had failed the Physics test and the English as well mainly because I had no understanding of what was going on in the book in English and had no idea what Physics was all about. Once the day had ended I  went home and debated on posting a video. I had a video ready for the next day but none prepared for Tuesday. While debating on posting it I got a message from Frvmework (who is a YouTuber I look up to and follow with 10k+ Subscribers). Nothing really vague, in fact it was kind of straightforward and surprised the hell out of me. “I don’t usually tell you guys before the video is up” was what he said. After that I posted the video out of pure excitement. I felt the need to make my videos 10 times better than what they were already. I wanted to give everyone an entertaining first video to come to. With the excitement of the shoutout I found my self helping my mother with cleaning out old files in the backroom. When I checked my phone I had seen the video was posted and my phone was filled with notifications. Quickly I got to answering almost all of the comments but there were was just too many to answer. I tried my best to get back to everyone before I went to sleep that night

Wednesday :

After the excitement on Tuesday the week went on and kept getting better. Weds was the 2nd to last day of school and to my surprise a relatively busy one. Nonetheless we got out grades for the finals and tests back. I had passed Economics with a 90 and Physics with a 72 (Now that doesn’t sound like a good grade to most people but I had a consistent score of 50-60 on all the tests so I was ecstatic) It was the first time I actually felt confident in myself in a while. Me and my friend Sebastian (OrangeYoshiKid on YouTube) went out and bought some “celebration” snacks. The only downside to this day was that the line to get a yearbook was insane. I was pretty disappointed with the yearbook as a whole. It was bland and reeked of favoritism. I was only in it once in my actual yearbook picture. Not even my senior quote was in it, which I didn’t care about really I was just happy to be getting out of this school. I didn’t bother to store it away safely, I plan to burn it in 10 years when my mother can’t try and convince me to keep it. I want nothing to remember from this school.

Thursday:

Today was the last day of classes, I could not wait for it to be over and I only actually went to 2 classes out of the 6 I have. It had gotten to the point where all I was thinking about was leaving. However I had to wait for my girlfriend to go to her classes for review. I only signed exactly 11 yearbooks and that was all I wanted to sign. I only care about 10 people in my entire grade and had a mental list of people. I only signed the 11th one because he was a friend of my friend who I had been close with a few years prior. The day moved very slow and the only thing I had on my mind was getting home and answering comments on YouTube. This year was a joke and I cannot wait to graduate and never see many of these people ever again.I will never attend a high school reunion as long as I live because

  1. I hate my grade
  2. My grade all hates eachother

My grade couldn’t get a single person to agree to hold pre-prom at their house… It’s that bad but still does not affect me. I didn’t attend prom this year. I decided to go with my girlfriends grade because they can all agree on one thing, my grade is full of morons.

Friday:

Tomorrow I have off of school to relax before the regents exams next week. Hopefully I can pass them, I have after all been studying like crazy for these tests. I will be recording again and trying to make it as entertaining as I possibly can.

End:

The best part of this entire year was watching the YouTube channel grow and become bigger than I had imagined it to ever become. That was truly the highlight of my entire senior year. YouTube is something I love and I truly hope I can continue this in the future during college and maybe one day make it a full time job if I ever get the opportunity. Sounds crazy I know. Chances of that are low but a person could hope.

That’s all for today. I will try to get back to this next week but in the meantime I really need to study for the exams. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Hope you all have a great day!

Favorite Time of the Month

Welcome to the blog! Let’s just jump right into it! For those who don’t know about the channel click the link to go explore some content!

For the most part my months are relatively bland, I run a gaming channel so most of what I do is kind of repetitive, it’s the same cycle again and again. DOOM, then Dead Space, DOOM, Dead Space, let’s throw in some funny moments, Gmod, Tubetycoon ect. There is one time of the month I look forward to the most. The very first week.

The first week of the month is what I like to call “Indie Gaming Week.” I started this series back in February and made it a monthly thing. Not too little and not too much. You may ask “Why is this so important?” Well to you maybe it isn’t but to me, well it keeps me somewhat sane. When you have to play the same 2 games over and over again it begins to get to you so this is a bit of a refresher to show that there are more than just the 2 games out there.

During Indie Gaming Week I put all of my series to the side and choose off a website called “Gamejolt” an indie game a day to play. This event is more for the developers so that I can give them some tips on what to do, what I thought about the game and overall shoot to help them out. At the same time it’s also for the people who love watching indie games on YouTube. It’s the one time of the month where I feel like I can let loose and go off topic from the game I’m playing.

I love indie games, most of the time they are much different than most games and give me an opportunity to play genuine games that others worked hard on. I wish I could play them all in a week but unfortunately that isn’t possible.

Thank you for reading this blog. It was shorter than the rest of mine I know, but I wanted to keep this one short for reasons.

Just Another Day…

Welcome back to another blog. I guess this is just a formal thing now considering I have done it twice and will continue welcoming you back. Here is the channel link for those who are new to the blog.

Today I woke up dreading the fact that it’s a Tuesday, I hate Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I also dreaded that I had to go to school. I don’t mind school but I do mind the people in my school. I live in a predominately rich town where most people are snobby and disregard the others who aren’t as wealthy. They complain about their BMW I8 sports coupe and expect people to be impressed or feel bad for them. Donate it to me then, would love to drive that around.

Anyway today is the last concert of the year for my school and I am so happy that Jazz is finally over. The Jazz program in our school is the biggest joke because it didn’t matter how good you played your instrument, instead, it was picked by favorites. The advanced band program called “Wind Ensemble” was also organized by favorites. I sat last Trumpet chair all 4 years of high school while the girl and a few others in front of me never really even played, they just sat there on their phones and missed most entrances for the songs.

This year coming to an end is becoming something of a sweet event rather than a bitter-sweet event. College will be different experience all together for me. New place, new people, new school. I really can’t say for sure if i’ll enjoy it, but I know that it’ll be at a better location away from most of the bullshit that’s gone on.

I’ll be majoring in Aeronautical Engineering which is in fact a very math and science oriented major. Math has always been tough for me ever since 7th grade, and I can’t say that I have passed with over an 80 in the class since then. Chemistry and Physics are the only two sciences that I found to be hard and with Aeronautical engineering Physics is one of the most important subjects (help me now.) My worry is that if high school physics is tough for me then I have no clue how I will pass a college course.

I have this constant cloud of demotivation when it comes to school. It’s gotten me used to failure and showed me how one little thing could change my entire day.

I don’t want to make this a depressing blog though. School could be great but the only thing I have against it is that they don’t teach you what you need to know for going into certain majors. For example if someone wants to be a Vet they don’t have a class dedicated to just that specific topic, at least not in my school. I wanted to learn German, they don’t have that in my school. There have been so many missed opportunities for me and the school system has taken away quite a lot.

If I was honest with my family I would have told them “I’m not fit for college” which is probably true. I was forced into doing my major, which i’m still not happy about, but i’ll have to struggle through as best as I can.

When I told my parents about my original plan, which was entertainment, they almost immediately said “no.” My second major would have been astronomy “no.” It just sucks that I can’t do what I want to do which is why I started on YouTube. It’s what drives me to make good content and to keep my fans happy. More than just that I want to prove to my parents that I can be an entertainer rather than just a gamer. They believe that YouTube is for the people who don’t go to college and for drop outs to make a living off of. Not the truth but there is no changing their mind about that. YouTube is the way of expressing yourself on the internet through videos whether it be gaming, skits, music, etc. It’s all about you.

That’s the blog for today everyone. Once again if you don’t know about the YouTube Channel the link is here.

Thank you for taking the time to read this! Hope you have a great day!
