A short snippet of a thought today. You may have a great idea and a great plan to get it done… but it all means nothing until it becomes something.
I’m in this weird state right now where I’m not really happy nor am I really sad. I’m in a lull. I’m bland. I’m silent? It’s a mood perfect for writing because I’m not trying to say something profound, I’m just here… I’m just typing. My impulses are just telling me to write… something.
What do you think about when you think of the classics? When you go on YouTube, when you look at your movie collection, when you go on Netflix, when you look at your book collection… what do you grab if you’re looking for something classic.
Classic: that one particular artwork that makes you repeat every line projected from the character’s voice or make you giggle even though you’ve read that sentence over and over before. Classics.
Here are my classics…
I think everyone has skills that are better than the other things they’re trying to do. For example, I think I’m a better writer than I am when dabbling with YouTube vlogs. To make it more precise, I think I’m a better storyteller than a vlogger. Yet, here I am vlogging – does this make sense?
This in no way means I’m leaving my YouTube channel. Are you kidding me? I love that I’m trying to be consistent and publishing content. It’s instilling me to never give up and put me in the mindset that filming should be a part of my life.
However, I am still trying to find that sweet spot. So far the one thing that I’ve enjoyed the most was when I did the “How I Met Shannon” & “Meet The Coolest Brothers” episodes. Why? Because there was a story behind these videos, I wasn’t vlogging just to vlog. I was telling a story.
I think there is a lesson here…
There are many things I want to do before I’m 30. One of which is to write a Young Adult novel. I started writing one but I ended up holding it off due to lack of time and utter laziness. I’m back on my groove and I’m continuing the book. However, I’m not putting a time limit when I’m supposed to finish each chapter: I’m not going to rush creativity.
Though I’m not going to follow any sort of writing schedule, I am going to be following a specific formula when writing my book…

I just published my newest video. There are a lot of snappy moments and it doesn’t really tell a fluent story. It can be confusing. However, I wanted to publish it so I could make sure people (who follow me) knew why I was / am in Utah at this moment.
So, with the many flaws, I’m really embarrassed to promote the video on my personal facebook page, twitter, or even here for that matter. I’m not going to and hopefully when my channel grows – this will be one of the videos that I will delete from my arsenal.
I’m headed to about 6 videos and the next video I’m working on should get over 1,000 views. The goal is to have a stream of 1000+ viewed videos for the next few weeks.
There is a lot of my mind right now. I know this is a very short post. I’ll probably throw up some “How To Get a Girl’s Number” type post tomorrow because I really miss writing those. 😀
And, last note. I want to say – that even though everything is a slow start… I’m really happy at the moment: but more later.
