“The years have a way of slipping by, of changing the world around us and every boy sooner or later must put away his toys and become a man.” – Peter Parker- Amazing Spider-Man #50
I spent a lot of time thinking about what direction I want to take the site in since I decided to quit YouTube after all the controversy surrounding losing my partnership and the Ad-pocalypse last year and I have come to the conclusion that after I get all of my videos from YouTube up to the site, it may be time to say that I am done with web series and regular vlogging (One Lone Cat) and going back to writing and some other things.
Does this mean that I am going to stop video-making after doing it for 10 years? Well I’ll do some random stuff here and there but I just think that it’s finally time to move on. I’ll also consider doing some podcasts as well. Also, considering my always-busy schedule I miss writing. So I’ll see how this goes.
For starters, it’s nice to know that nice weather has finally arrived in my neck of the woods after a very long winter. The last two days have been gorgeous out. And I have started working my semi-regular hours at The Rose Quartz Stand at the beginning of the month where I work a split shift on Tuesdays from 10 am to noon then come back from 5 to 6 at night and I work from 5 to 7 at night on Wednesdays (like I am as I’m writing this) which means I go to the shop right after my real job.
In addition to that, I might be working some gem shows this year, such as the Herkimer Gem and Mineral Show in July as well as Herkimer Diamond Days in August. So this is all a new experience for me.
Yesterday I worked a full day at the shop till 7, closing only because I had a delivery arrive at the house. Last weekend, I made my first purchase on the Walmart.com app: A new lawn mower. It’s an electric lawn mower rather than the gas ones that I’ve used for years, which means it’s more environmentally-friendly. It’s also lightweight and it can fit in my house too so no need to leave it outside.
Plus an update on my weight loss. As of Sunday, I was down to 239 pounds for a total of 22 pounds lost since the beginning of April. Pretty soon I should be ready to start working out again.
Well, to close this out I just want to say that it’s been a wild ride throughout my 10 years as a video-making and it will be nice to take a break and get back to writing because I have a very busy schedule going forward into this summer. Now let’s hope that I can keep this going for as long as I can.
