Dear Brendan Fraser
For many years, I’ve respected and admired you. I've lost count on how many times I've watched your movies and I imagined one day to be able to work with you. I know that you’ve had a tough time in the last few years and not being able to do what you love has been a challenge. Your fans will always welcome you back with open arms. We love and adore you.
The characters that you bring to the screen have left an impression on people that grew up watching you and will always be something that we cherish. You could be swinging from vines or fighting off mummies, but there would be no other person that we could ever picture as those classic characters. You always brought a laugh or an adventure into our lives.
You have left a strong impact on me. You will always have a special place in my heart. You are a good man with a good heart.
Thank you for being an inspiration and for being who you are.

I had recently found a youtube video that someone did where they answered Disney related questions that were based on the quarantine. I thought it would be cool to answer them. Originally, there were 19 questions, but I took out a few of them because I felt like I wasn’t going to answer them honestly or I would answer them with one or two word answers. I’ll do my best to answers the remaining questions as best as I can.
If you could be on a vacation at any Disney location, which would you choose?
I would have to say Disneyland. Its the original park. The park that started everything. Disney World wasn’t what people said it was. It was a bit of a disappointment.
Have you had to cancel / reschedule a Disney trip?
Luckily, I didn’t have a trip planned. I was thinking about going in the fall, but I’m going to wait until 2021 to go. I want to wait until everything calms done and its safe to travel. I know people had plans to go over spring break or for summer holidays and they had to cancel due to the parks being closed. With the knowledge of not knowing when the parks are re-opening, its hard to say when I’ll be making another trip to Disney.
If you could ride any Disney ride right now, which would you choose?
I’m torn behind Pirates of the Caribbean, The Haunted Mansion. Indiana Jones and Toy Story Mania. Since the Tower of Terror no longer exists at Disneyland, its hard to pick just one ride.
If you could eat at any Disney restaurant, which would you choose?
I discovered Earl Of Sandwich in Disney World and I found out that they have a location in Disneyland. I don’t know how long its been there, but it would be my #1 place to eat while I’m in town.
What Disney snack are you craving, right now?
I have a craving churros. I love cinnamon and sugar.
What Disney scents do you have or want in your house?
Anything that reminds of me of the rides or even Main Street. If I could bottle of my favourite scents, I would.
If you had to pick one Disney character to be quarantined with who would you choose?
Belle from Beauty and the Beast. She’s a book worm and it would be cool to be able to exchange books with her and read books I never thought to read.
Are you feeling creative? Crafts? Projects?
I have a bunch of Disney DIYs, but I need to go to Michaels for craft supplies. I don’t want to risk catching anything and I don’t know how long online orders is going to take to arrive so I’m just going to keep a list of my ideas and the supplies I need so I can stock up when everything is over and its good to go into stores.
What are you binge watching TV show? Movie series?
This isn’t Disney related, but I binged Outer Banks. There’s a few cliff hangers that make you want to keep watching.
What are you reading?
Right now, I’m reading the second book of Kingdom Keepers. There’s a bunch of them in the trilogy. They take place in Disney World and the later books are based in Disneyland from what I read about them online. So far so good.

I grew up watching Johnny Depp and I’ve always try my best to see him in everything he does, but over the last 10+ years its been hard to watch him on screen because of the characters or even the movies he’s been known to do. He’s a very talented man, but I feel like he could have made better choices in the roles that have been offered. I feel like he’s hiding behind the make-up like the Mad Hatter in Alice and Willy Wonka. When he plays an everyday person like a lawyer or a husband with kids, that’s when he really shines. I believe that he doesn’t need to be an outrageous character like Jack Sparrow to really show his true talent. Maybe he’s struggling and he just needs something, anything to help with whatever he’s going thru.
There are a few movies/TV shows that Johnny as done that I could watch over and over again. Hopefully if you need something to watch, make sure you check them out.
Secret Window (2004)
A successful writer in the midst of a painful divorce is stalked at his remote lake house by a would-be scribe who accuses him of plagiarism.
The Astronaut's Wife (1999)
After an explosion in space and subsequent two-minute radio-out period, two astronauts return home to their wives. Slightly it's revealed that they're not the same as they were.
21 Jump Street (1987-1991)
The cases of an undercover police unit composed of young-looking officers specializing in youth crime.
I know his true passion is music. If he feels like that’s what he wants to do then he should take a step back from Hollywood and focus on what he really loves. He’s been touring with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry in a band named “The Hollywood Vampires”. I hope with everything that’s been going on, Johnny can finally find some peace and be able to keep doing what he’s been doing.

If I’m being honest, there are things that I would love to do, but I’m afraid to do. I don’t know if its an aspergers thing or if I’m just scared of the outcome. When I think about things I’ve done like youtube, I think about how that was a failure. I was excited about finally finding a platform where I could be myself and be able to show my interests and make friends etc, but overtime it went no where. I developed nothing from it and I was disappointed because I knew that where I wanted my youtube to go was no where near were it went. I take my negative experiences from youtube and apply them to the things I want to try and do. Every time I wanted to create something either artistically or on my blog, I always think that nobody’s going to see this, nobody’s going to pay attention, nobody cares what I do and that always makes me self conscience because I tend to think that if I’m not good enough for other people then what I am doing what I’m doing. Even if I’m good at something and people aren’t responding to it then I start to become my own worst critic.
I try and reach out and ask what people would like to see me do, but they just don’t care. I’m always coming up with things that I could do, but I’m scared that the outcome is going to be negative one because I’m afraid that people aren’t going to take an interest in what I have to say or in the things I’m doing so I’ll put everything on hold.
I want to be able to branch out and try new things, but I’m afraid of how its going to turn out. I don’t want to give it a happy ending and then it turns out to be a failure. I’ve experienced heartbreak when it came to things I cared about and I just don’t want do that again with my blog. Its been over 10 years since I began my blog and its nowhere near where I want it to be and sometimes I wonder why I began a blog in the first place. Do I give it up and just let it die or do I just keep writing and hope that I get at least one positive feedback on it? Is my blog a failure? Am I trying to hard to make it work?

What are some of the things you want to do before you kick the bucket? Do you have a vision board to help you conquer the things off your list? I always add/delete things off my list because I either outgrew that item or less interest or I find something really cool that I want to do and I convince myself that if I put it on my bucket list that I have to do it. I know there are a million things I want to do in life, but this is just a few that I have that I wish to accomplish in my life. I hope we can all come together and help each other cross items off our lists.

- Be in a horror movie

One of my biggest fears is not living the life I always wanted for myself. I had always pictured a life I was proud of, a life I can look back on and know I had no regrets and what ifs. but as of right now, its no where near I wanted it to be. When I see someone doing things I want to do, I feel like they are living my life and I’m just in the background watching my dreams come true through them.
Some days I’m fine with not living life to the fullest, but every once in a while, I’ll hear or see something and it makes me think about my own life. I always think about if I could go back in time and wonder if I got that one job or if I had applied myself more in high school, would my life be different or would I struggle with trying to find my place in the world. Some people just have it easier then others.
I feel like I’m not being recognized for the work I put in. I feel like I could do everything right, show up on time, never call in sick, but I don’t get noticed and it makes me feel like I’m invisible. I can talk about my strengths, but nobody wants to use them. I try to help others, but I feel like they don’t take it seriously. They don’t want to help from me, but are willing to ask others for the exact same thing. Makes me feel like a bad person.
I’m just going to live my life the way I want to live it. I’m going to let people come to me. I’m not going to offer anything and have it be rejected. If people really cared about my opinion and/or help then they can approach me. I’m not going to reach out. I’m just tired of doing what other people expect me to do. I want to show people I’m more then just a robot who does what they want it do. I’m much more then that. I just want people to give me a chance, but nobody’s giving the opportunity.

Every since I started my blog in 2009, I always used it as my motivation to write, a motivation to work on my writing and to get better at it, but was that the only reason why I wanted to write a blog. Was I just using my blog to get better at something I already was good at. Over the years as I thought about it, I wanted more out of my blog. I wanted to be able to share my interests with people. I wanted to be able to let people know what goes on inside the mind of someone with Aspergers. I wanted people to feel the feels, but the more I thought about what I was putting out there into the world, I wanted to take a minute to really understand what I writing. Do I really want complete strangers to know every little thing about me, to know every little feeling?
When I think about the meaning behind my blog, it inspires me to keep going. My dream team inspires me to keep on writing and not give up. They are my inspiration in so many ways. When I feel like I want to give up, I think about why I started my blog and the meaning behind it. I want to be able to use my words and let people know that with hard work determination, you can reach your dreams and meet the people that inspire you. I want to use my blog for good. I don’t want to use it just because its there.
My blog is my way of expressing myself and if people read it, thats great. If people don’t, that’s fine. All that matters to me is that it lands in the hands in my dream team. I want them to know that there are people out there who respect and admire them.

There are people who are very superstitious about Friday the 13th. Its known to be a day of bad luck, but some people consider Friday the 13th lucky. I don’t know if its the day itself or the number 13. Whatever you believe or just live the day like any other day, its still a weird thing to think about. So many people get so freaked out by the day and they will go out of their way to avoid the day as much as they can. Why does the legend behind Friday the 13th exist and when did it start? Are you someone that fears Friday the 13th? What do you do to make yourself lucky on such a unlucky day?
Here are some things about the infamous day. Maybe you’re learn a thing or two.
- The fear of 13 is called triskaidekaphobia.
- The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia.
- A lot of hotels and office buildings don’t have a 13th floor.
- The number 13 is associated with the last supper. Jesus and the 12 disciples. Judas was the 13th guest at the dinner.
- Its a friday because that was the day of the week Jesus was crucified.
- There isn’t a more then 3 Friday the 13ths in the same year, but it could happen.
- If the 1st of the month begins on a Sunday, there is a Friday the 13th.
- Alfred Hitchcock was born on Friday the 13th.
- Tupac died on Friday the 13th

If you been following my blog for a while, you know what its all about, but if this is your first time tuning in, let me explain to you what and who my dream team is. My dream team is a group of musicians and actors who I’ve respected and admired for as long as I could remember and my dream is to one day to meet them and be able to say Thank You for the impact they’ve had on me throughout the years. Its my mission to write a blog in hopes that it will land in the hands of my dream team. Its my goal to make that dream come true and be able to meet them. It may take me a while to make it happen, but as long as I’m able to write and tell the world my stories then I should be able to conquer this dream in no time.
Writing is something I’ve always wanted to do and I hope that one day I could to be able to work with everyone I’ve respected and admired since I was a kid. Maybe we can team up and write an academy award winning movie. We can reach for the stars and do anything we set our minds too. These musicians and actors are people that have inspired me in some way. I want to be able to let them know that even after all these years of playing music and creating memorable characters, being who they are as a person is what I admire about them. They experienced something that no family wants to experience and they came out stronger because of it or they created something that bought so many good memories that when I think about it, it brings me back to a time where life was just so simple and carefree. It doesn’t matter what they’ve done, they are a group of people that I care about and want to be able to create new memories with and be able to let them know how much they mean to. I grew up knowing that if I wanted to catch ghosts, to be a pirate, try and hit as many home-runs as Babe Ruth or just be someone with a heart of gold then I know I could do just that. I don’t have to look far when it comes to people who want to inspire others without even knowing that they are doing it. No matter where this blog goes, I just hope that my dream team would know that they are respected, admired and adored.

Nobody knows what the future holds. We can plan all we want, but one little thing can change the course of what the world has in store for us. If we were able to see into the future, would we like what we see or would we try and change it out of fear? Some of us fear the unknown and other people just for with the flow, they just go wherever it takes them.
When I was in high school, I had a plan on what I wanted my future to look like. I had pictured what I wanted to accomplished. I had planned on getting married and having kids by 30 and working at a job I loved. I planned on travelling and having a great group of friends who would come over on a regular basis. I didn’t wanted to be one of those people who move every couple of years. I wanted to live in one place for many years and when I move out of said home, I would take one last look around and remember the amazing memories that I had made. A home where I fell in love in, a home I got married in, a home where everything I ever wanted come true. I wanted so much, but of course none of that has happened.
At the age I’m at now, I’m in a “If it happens, it happens” mindset. There are things I still want to happen. I want to a home and not a house. I want to create a life in one place and not have to worry about where I’m going to be when the lease it up. I still want to have a good life, but I’m at a place now where if I get married, thats great. If I don’t get married, thats fine. If I have have kids, fantastic. If I don’t have kids, that’s okay, but there are things I still want and cherish and I want to be able to work hard on the things I do want so I can look back on my life and know that I did everything I could do to have a amazing life to look back on. I don’t want to live in fear. I want to take it one day at a time, one step at a time, one breath at a time. Who knows what the future holds. I don’t want to plan what’s going to happen and be disappointed when that thing doesn’t happen.

Everyone has a song that moves them. It could be the latest hit on the radio or a song from your childhood. At some point those awesome dance moves that you’ve been secretly hiding will come out when the beat comes on. Even if you can’t burst a move that is considered a actual dance move, you can always sing on the top of your lungs and pretend your giving a one night only concert that is only attended by a dead house plant and that pile of recyclables you keep meaning to take out.
Here is a list of songs I can keep listening to over and over again. I always tend to add songs especially if its a song I discovered and have it on repeat for a few days. I also have favourite musicians I listen to on a regular basis so pretty much any song from those artists and bands are a favourite.
- Didn’t I by Rod Stewart
- A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton
- Shine A Light by Bryan Adams
- Stand by Rascal Flatts
- Anything from The Bee Gees
- Love Me Like You Do by Ellie Goulding
- Patio Lanterns by Kim Mitchell
- Walk Me Home by Pink
- Against The Wind by Bob Seger
This is an endless list. It could go on and on, but I think you get the jest of what kind of music I listen too. Its all over the map. What are some of your favourite songs to listen too? Do you remember where you were when you first heard it?

I do have to admit that I let fear hold me back. I let fear take control. When I have doubts about something, I convince its fear telling me that I shouldn’t do it even when I know that I should at least try before I walk away. Anxiety plays a part in it too. Sometimes I think they go hand in hand in some situations because if I’m talking myself out of something, I think fear is there to convince that its a scary thing and then the anxiety tells me a whole bunch of things that I know its not true, but I start to believe whatever it tells me then it makes me not want to do something before I even leave the house.
I’ve always wanted to just let go of the fear and just follow my heart and do the things I’ve always wanted to do, but anxiety creates scenarios on why I shouldn’t do it. There have been times where I know I want to do something and I’ll do everything in my power to do it, but then I start thinking about the consequences like what if it doesn’t work out, what if I don’t get the recognition or what is I spend weeks, maybe months on something and nobody pay attention to the hard work I put into whatever I’m working on, but in the back of my mind, I know its something that I want and I shouldn’t let what other people think be the reason I shouldn’t do something.
Fear is something that everyone has. You start thinking about it and you let it stop you from doing what really means a lot to you. Take my writing for an example; I fear that I will never be able to do it for a living, I believe that I will never make money off of it. I believe that no matter how much time and affect I put into it, nobody’s going to take it seriously and I won’t be able to do the one thing I’m passionate about. Writing is everything and I feel like fear is standing between me and my writing and because its in the way, nobody is able to listen/read what I have to say. I feel like I’m talking to nobody. My words go out in the world then disappear before it has a chance to be seen. Maybe I think to much about something and I blame fear in thinking its the one convincing me that I can’t do thing and I come up with reasons why I can’t do something. I should really just go for it and step outside the box. What’s the first it can happen? I think I’m not good enough and it starts to get to me which brings out the worst in myself. I’m my own worst critic.

Vancouver is known as Hollywood North due to the numerous TV shows and movies that are filmed in and around the city. Every once in a while, your see a camera and lighting equipment being set up or you see a scene being filmed which I’ve witness countless times over the years. As someone who’s into the film and TV industry, its always a cool thing to see especially when the episode or movie airs on TV and I was like “I was there”
Here are a handful of movies and TV shows you may have not may have known were filmed in Vancouver.
21 Jump Street
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Night At The Museum
The Age of Adaline
Freddy vs. Jason
The Scary Movie Trilogy
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
Sonic the Hedgehog
The Dead Zone
There are hundreds more, but these are the ones I thought people would recognized. When I doing the research and looking at the list, I didn’t know a lot of the ones that were made and a lot of them I still haven’t seen. It motivates me to keep writing because one day, something that I wrote will be part of something that will be filmed in the city I call home. I want to be able to be part of something that I can look back on and know that the industry that I’ve respected for so long as welcomed me with open arms.

I remember a time when paranormal shows weren’t as popular as they are today. It was rare to see one on TV, but it now its seems like everyone and their brother are doing paranormal related things on youtube and on every other social media platform. I’ve always been a fan of the paranormal, but I’m starting to lose interested in the subject because of how popular its getting. I grew up with the Ghostbusters and I always thought that the paranormal would be something I would always keep with me and when people asked, I would be the one to tell them more about it, but since its something that’s getting a lot of attention nowadays, I feel like my knowledge about is not as valid now.
The paranormal was my secret talent. I would research and read books about the subject and I would talk about with anyone who would listen, but once the shows and youtube videos began, I felt like all that time was wasted because I felt like I wanted to be the one to make someone a believer if they choose to believe, but now it feels like everyone has their opinion about what is real and what isn’t.
There’s always two sides of the paranormal. Either you are all for it or you think its fake. If you are someone that is starting to get into it or you just want to know what people are talking about. Here are some common paranormal terms used on TV or on youtube.
Anomaly: Something that cannot be explained.
Apparition: Any ghost that seems to have a physical substance, whether visual, auditory, tactile, or olfactory.
Cold Spots: Areas of cool air found in haunted locations.
Disembodied Voice: A voice or noise that lacks an explainable source.
EMF (Electromagnetic Field): A combination of electrical and magnetic fields. EMF fields are commonly measured as part of the ghost hunting process.
EVP: The abbreviation for “electronic voice phenomena,” which refers to noises of a paranormal nature that cannot be heard with the human ear, but are recorded by electronic devices.
Intelligent Haunting: Activity resulting from an aware ghost or spirit that interacts with its environment.
Orb: An often translucent, circular anomaly seen in photography -- and sometimes with the naked eye -- that may be, depending on your theory, a bug, speck of dust, reflection, moisture or spirit energy.
Poltergeist: A spirit who makes noise or plays pranks. Often thought to centre around specific individuals (such as teenagers) and perhaps not ghosts at all but rather a form of latent telekinetic ability.
Possession: The state where an entity inhabits and exerts a level of control over a living thing or object.
Residual Haunting: Repetitive paranormal activity resulting from the energy imprint of a person or event in time.
Shadow Person: A commonly-reported inky black humanoid entity that moves fast, it is often spotted out of the corner of the eye and has been interpreted to be anything from a ghost or demon, to alien, time traveler or inter-dimensional being.
Spirit: As opposed to a ghost, a spirit is normally the soul of the deceased that has crossed over, and exists in a spiritual or metaphysical plane.
Telekinesis: The ability to control one’s physical environment without using physical manipulation or force.
Telepathy: The process by which a mind can communicate directly with another without using normal, physical interaction or ordinary sensory perception.
Vortex: A center of focused or concentrated spiritual energy.

Every summer I always have a list of things I want to to do. Since the weather is at its best, I have the energy to get out of the house and do a bunch of things, but a lot of the time I don’t have the motivation to actually do such things. I don’t know if its because I just don’t have anyone to do them with or because it takes me a long time to get to where I want to go. I don’t have a car so if I want to go downtown, its going to take me almost 2 hours just to get there when it could only take less then a hour by car.
It could also be not wanting to get out of my comfort zone. As much as I want to get out and meet new people and go on adventures, I have a hard time reaching out to people. I’ve been wanting to work on it and I feel like I should take 2020 and make it the year where I step outside the box and do things that make me uncomfortable. Hopefully with a little help and a little motivation from someone or anyone, I can finally do things I’ve been putting off for years.
I’ve been downtown numerous times over the years, but I’ve never been by myself. I don’t know downtown well enough to navigate myself around. I should just pick a place and just go for it. What’s the worst that could happen?
Catch Up On The Books I’ve Been Meaning To Read
I have a stack of books I need to read. I think going out on my deck would be a good place to read said books. Some books are sometimes hard to read, but I just got to power through it and other times, books are easy reads that you can finish within a day or two.
Have More Movie Nights
I always wanted to have a weekly movie night. Have someone come over and watch a movie they’ve never seen before. I’m amazed how many people haven’t seen the same movies I did growing up.
I think mostly I just want to get out more. Slowly move out of my comfort zone and just get over the nerves and anxiety. If something came up and I get lost, I have my phone or I can just ask someone. I just got to face the fear.

There are places in the world that would be amazing to see and if I was able to pack up and go I would, but some of us are more dreamers then adventurers. I have a handful of places I wish to see one day, but if I don’t see them with my own eyes then its not a big deal. I can move on.
I have no desire to go to Europe. It was something that was never been a dream of mine to spend weeks or months back packing and riding the rails, but there are a few places in Europe that would be cool to see, but I’m not planning a trip there anytime soon. Its one of those things where if it happens, it happens.
If you have ever been to any of these places, let me know and tell me what you thought of them.
- The Anne Frank House, Amsterdam, Netherlands
- Auschwitz-Birkenau, Poland
- Bergen-Belsen, Germany
- Belfast, Ireland
- Dublin, Ireland
- The Stanley Hotel, Estes Park, Colorado
- Martha’s Vineyard, just off Cape Cod in Massachusetts
- The Queen Mary
- Catalina Island
- James Dean crash site
- Buddy Holly crash site
- JFK Spot, Dallas, Texas
- The Lizzie Borden House
I know there will be more places to visit, but these places are just ones that I hopefully will see one day. We can all dream of living a life of travel and soaking up the sun and some of us are lucky to be able to do just that. If I had an limitless amount of money, I would take a trip once a year. One day it will happen.

When did you first realize you were different?
I always knew that I was different and I knew that my peers/classmates knew that I was different. I had a sense that there was something there, but I really didn’t know what it was. I knew that teachers knew there was something going on, but didn’t really know how to approach it. I was never made fun of because I was “different.” I always felt like I was the weird kid.
As a child, did you find it hard to make friends with other children ?
Yes and no. I had “friends” growing up because I saw them everyday at school, but since I graduated and got older, I have a hard time meeting people and making friends. I had a easier time when I was a kid to make friends then I do now.
What was your experience of school like?
School came easy to me. I loved school. I did have struggles when I was younger, but as I got older, school was my favourite part of the day. I enjoyed being in class.
What is the best part about having Aspergers?
Just being able to have a mind that can come up with different ways of doing something. Being able to be creative and see the world in a different way. My brain is wired differently. I can show people how that its okay to be different.
What is one thing you wish people knew about Aspergers?
Having aspergers isn’t a bad thing. You don’t need to be judgmental and tell us what we already know. We don’t need to be told that we’re different or weird. We want to be treated with respect and be able to have a life like everyone else and have the same goals and dreams like everyone around us. We don’t need to be judged on what we can and can’t do. We’re all human just trying to fit in.

Youtube has been going through a lot of changes over the years and it seems like its starting to take a toll on a lot of channels and videos. A lot of people who make a living on youtube have had their share of thoughts and opinions about what youtube’s been doing to not only the website, but to the creators who make videos. To make a long story short, its not as fun as it used to be.
When I started posting videos in 2006 and I know that it doesn’t seem that long due to my oldest video being dated back to 2014, but over the years, I’ve deleted videos due to not getting the views I thought the video deserved. I honestly thought I would make a decent living making videos, but as time went on and seeing the numbers not going up, I thought why am I doing this if no one is going to be paying attention? I felt discouraged because I thought that this would be my way of getting into the career I always wanted to get into which was film and TV. I thought finally, I have a platform where I can share my interests and by myself. I can make friends and be able to create opportunities and make memories that I never thought I would ever experience. As time went on and I saw that my videos weren’t getting the love that I wanted them to get, I wondered if being in front of the camera wasn’t where I was supposed to be. Maybe being behind the camera and doing behind the scenes stuff was more up my alley.
It seemed like no matter how videos I posted or take the time to film and edit, I wasn’t seeing change. I always told myself that it wasn’t about the subscribers or how many views I got, but I always thought it would be nice to get a little bit of a following. Create a little bit of a fanbase where I can interact with other people and create friendships. I thought youtube would be my way of making friends because I have a hard time connecting with people in real life and using youtube would be a good way for me to share my interests and have other people connect with me thru my videos, but the more I posted, the less interaction I got and I thought why am I taking my time to make these videos and trying to connect with people when nobody is taking the time connect with me. I could go months without uploading a video and nobody seems to miss me. They don’t ask where I’ve been or ask if I’m okay.
As 2019 as ended and the new year is beginning and 13 years of youtube. I have to say goodbye to youtube. I’ve lost interest in posting videos and “interacting” with whomever comments on my videos. My heart just isn’t in it anymore. Its hasn’t been my #1 priority for a few years now. I want to be able to focus on other interests on other platforms. I want to use other mediums to share my ideas and my stories. I want to make my dream job come true and youtube isn’t it. I thought it was something I could do, but I just outgrew making videos. I made videos just for the sake of making videos. I felt pressured into uploading videos because I felt like the more I posted, the more traffic I was going to bring onto my channel. Keep people coming back for more. I have other talents that I could use. I want to have one less thing on my mind and not have to worry about making sure I do something exciting so I can have something to post.
I wish I could say that youtube has given me countless opportunities and has given me the life I always dreamed of, but I can’t. I wish I had good things to say about youtube, but what good did youtube ever do to me. All I can say is I wish youtube all the best. Best of luck in the future.

I’ve been watching Big Bang for years and there are things about the show that just don’t fit right with me. I don’t know if it’s just the way the writers wrote the show/characters or if it’s just because the show’s been on long enough that they just didn’t want to change what works, but I got to be honest. There are things about the show that just got old really fast and shouldn’t have lasted as long as it did.
Here are the things I don’t like about Big Bang:
Penny becoming pregnant.
It was said early on that Penny didn’t want kids, but spoiler alert; she gets pregnant in the series finale. I think that if someone doesn’t want to become a parent then they shouldn’t have to be one no matter how other people feel and react and I feel like the writers making Penny pregnant makes it look like she gave in to Leonard and became pregnant. Even if it was an accident, they should have been careful. Even if Leonard really wanted to have kids, he should have respected his wife’s decision and not make her feel horrible about not making Leonard the father that he always wanted to be.
Howard and his mother.
I know that this was a running joke on the show, but it got old really fast. Howard never really stood up to his mother and told her to back off. If he really wanted to get away from her then he could have moved out a long time ago. Clearly he makes enough to at least get an apartment. I don’t remember if he gave a reason why he still lived at home, but I think it had to do with something about his father taking off and Howard felt like it was on him to look after his mom, but he can still do that from afar. The whole Howard is a mama’s boy got really old and the joke was over after the first few times.
Raj and his love life.
Raj is a hopeless romantic, but how far is too far? He doesn’t seem to learn from his mistakes. Instead of figuring out what happened to cause the break-up, he just keeps doing it making women not wanting to be with him. He doesn’t have to change who he is, but he just needed to fix the areas that cause women to lose interest.
Sheldon and the Nobel Peace Prize.
I honestly thought that he was going to lose. With Sheldon being who he is, I thought that him losing something like the Nobel Peace Prize would show him that he can’t always get what he wants. He tends to treat everyone like dirt and I would assume that losing would really knock some sense into him that there are other people in the world that are just as smart and just as hard working as he is and that they deserve the prize just as bad as he does.
Standing up to Sheldon.
The gang should have stood up to Sheldon a lot sooner than they should have. They spent the 12 seasons getting ripped apart by Sheldon only to walk away and then come back. I would have cut ties with him a long time ago and kept my distance. What has he ever done to help his friends that didn’t involve him outsmarting them or putting them down? After the first couple of insults about my intelligence, I would have been out of there.
As I keep watching the show, I know I’m going to find more things that I’m not a fan of. It’s a good show to a point, but it’s just repetitive and the jokes are old. It was the same storyline season after season. If and when I find something else, I’ll put it on the list.
