No resolutions, but…

We’re in November right now. Oh, how time flies by! We are getting closer to the new year. This year really went by super fast and it feels like I haven’t accomplished anything. Although, I have been making some progress mentally with loving, embracing and being myself more, but there are still moments where I can’t help but feel unaccomplished, if that makes any sense. I want to feel the way I used to feel before a decade ago, where I was just happy. Working and making money, go on holidays and just live life. I do have faith that I will achieve that goal, because I do feel I am on the right path, but it’s such a slow process. It does make me feel anxious, but I try so hard to rise above it and fight it. Also this global pandemic that we’re in and all the chaos that is happening in the world, that is quite an obstacle too for me, it feels like.

I don’t do resolutions when it’s a new year. I never do. I think having new year’s resolutions is lame. Why wait for a new year to change and better yourself, when you can do that today? What I do hope is that I will have some opportunities in the new year. Opportunities that actually benefits me socially, financially and most of all mentally. Doing something I love and enjoy. Get back out there again and not hide because I am scared. I developed a little bit of strength this year, but it’s still a work in progress.

I feel kind of conflicted and anxious right now. I’m trying to shake it off by letting it out of my system by typing this blog post. I’m trying to hold on to the little bit of the positive mindset that I have right now for the firture and hope the new year will open some doors for me, for real.

Another thing that I always deal with each year is that it’s the holiday season soon. Christmas is just around the corner and I have to admit that every year during the holidays, I can get a little depressed. I’m always alone during the holidays, which is not the biggest problem. I do enjoy my alone time. It’s just that you always get reminded about being with your loved ones during the holidays and being all jolly with everyone. And it sucks when you really don’t have those options, to be with loved ones. I try to make the best of it, of course. I will probably have a little Christmas feast by myself, dim the lights, light some candles, couch hang and watch Netflix or whatever. That’s all fine with me, but still. So complex isn’t it?

We’ll see how my state of mind is when it’s actually close to Christmas. I’ll probably blog about it too. But, enough of this rant. I didn’t want to bottle it up, so I just thought I’d blog about it. Because this is my little home on the Internet, a place where I can talk about anything, right? Yes! I really do hope everyone out there is doing good. If not, try to fake it until you make it, perhaps?

I need some time for myself again

After a lot of thinking I have decided to cancel streams on Twitch this whole week! I need a little break and focus some more on myself. It’s one of those many moments again where I just need a little break, you know? I have been working on my stream overlays and I have made some minor changes to my blog as well, but I need to find my groove again and record The Sims 4 speed build videos again for my YouTube channel. I haven’t uploaded a video in like two months! I have been feeling uninspired a lot lately, so I need to find a way to get my creative juices flowing a little.

I can’t help but feel a little guilty for cancelling my streams. I don’t know why, because I know that I shouldn’t. I have received so much love and support from many people the past three years and it sometimes makes me feel like I owe them something back, you know? That’s why whenever I cancel a stream, I can’t help but feel a little bit guilty. How do I shake that feeling off? Of course, I am super grateful for everything people have given me. But still, I always have to put myself first. That’s the most important thing I have to do. I guess I fear that people will think that I am taking them for granted. I know that’s not the case, at least I hope it’s not. I really enjoy streaming and hanging out with like minded people, who take me and accept me for who I am. I can always be my crazy self around them. And I hope I make people feel they can be themselves as well. I don’t have a big community or anything like that. People come and people go… but the dozens of people who do stick around are just amazing and wonderful! They make me laugh and feel loved!

So, what am I gonna focus on this week? Like I said, I need to get my juices flowing again and get some inspiration and record speed builds again. I will tweak some minor things on my stream overlays and I am gonna try to add some more stuff to my blog as well. Maybe add some more pictures or something. I think I should blog more too about random stuff that’s been happening as well. I have watches so many movies and shows the past couple of weeks, it would be nice to blog something about that as well. Just the things I enjoy.

Anyway, I think I have rambled enough. I just wanted to give a little update on my life.

Disconnecting for the weekend

This weekend I am disconnecting a little bit and having a little ‘me’ time. It’s one of those moments again where I feel like I just wanna crawl under a rock. Whenever I feel like that I always disconnect myself from people and just deal with it. Analyze and examine my feelings and thoughts and work my way through it.

Lately I haven’t been feeling all that great about myself. There are a few things. My body. I don’t like it. I thought I was okay with it and just embrace it, but I guess not. I can’t even look at myself in the mirror when I get out of the shower. I am like a yo-yo, gaining and losing weight. Not so long ago I started intermittent fasting and eating more healthy. I eat between noon and 8pm and nothing else after until noon the following day. I did that for like a few months and I really noticed the difference. I noticed a change in my body and I felt more energetic too. But then I fell off the wagon again. I started eating again outside of the time slot I eat. More fatty food, chips, ice-cream, chocolate chip cookies, all the good stuff. And I noticed that extra spare tire coming back around my waste. So, here we are again, feeling bad and unhappy about it. I started intermittent fasting and eating healthier again since a couple of days. I am gonna try and focus on it and remind myself of how the results from the last time made me feel better. Fingers crossed.

Another thing I am going through is that feeling of not feeling attractive and feeling unwanted. Where the fuck did that come from, huh? Every time I take an interest in someone it always blows up in my face. I understand that I have a weird sense of humor, a dirty mind, but I think I have a great personality. Don’t I? There were countless moments where I came across someone who is cute, funny and has a great personality. I then I think “we could be so great together”. Does anyone ever think that when they see someone they like? Or am I the only one? But no, they’re either not interested or they don’t think of me the same way. Or when they show you they’re interested, but their heart isn’t fully in it. You know what I mean? It’s frustrating some times. Anyway! Woe is me! But I do feel that I can be the best boyfriend anyone could ever have. Is that a cocky thing to say? I mean, I am compassionate, understanding, loving, sweet and funny. I am all for honesty and communication. Making the other person feel there isn’t anything that they cannot tell me or talk to me about, even if they feel or think it may be something I don’t wanna hear. Doesn’t that sound like a good thing to have in a relationship? Anway!

What else has been happening? Anything that isn’t all that depressing? Well… I have been addicted to Genshin Impact since a month now. So that’s keeping me occupied a lot. And of course I am still streaming on Twitch, which I enjoy a lot. Hanging out with my peeps and stuff. Yeah, that gives me a lot of joy. Everyone is so loving and kind. I always have a great time streaming.

You know, with whatever it is that I am going through right now, I always try so hard to stay positive. Positive and optimistic. Good things will come, eventually. I just gotta set my mind to it, really. And not get sucked into this black hole. So I am considering my weekend of disconnecting a little bit as a good thing. Allowing myself to be a bit vulnerable and just let it all come to me. Feel, deal, heal… right?

Anyway, enough ranting about this. I needed it to get it off my chest one way or another, so why not blog about it? I hope everyone is having a glorious weekend. Take good care of yourself. And don’t worry about me. I will figure out how to rise above it. I always do.

Great 41st birthday

Yesterday I turned 41 years young and it was an absolutely fun and amazing day. I went on to do a 12 hour stream on Twitch! To some this may be something that would makes you wonder how this is fun, but it was and that’s that. I had a blast hanging out with people. I did some building in The Sims 4, played some Geoguessr and I even had a few people on voice chat in Discord for the last hour of my stream. Time went pretty fast. I started at 12 o’clock noon and ended at midnight, precisely.

I even had a bit to drink during stream and eventually I was really feeling the buzz. But I had a lot of laughs and I was having a good time!

Playing Geoguessr on stream for the first time ever was a blast as well. I am definitely going to play that on stream more often. It’s a great game that allows you to train your brain and have a chill time with everyone in chat as well, who then has the option to help you out.

A want to give a huge thank you to everyone who tuned in to my 12 hour stream and for celebrating my birthday. I also want to thank for everyone’s generosity as well. I am always forever grateful for all the love and support I get on Twitch and I don’t take it for granted.

So, now I am another year old. Do I feel my age? Not at all. I still have the mindset of a 20-something year old. Sometimes. Physically however, I don’t know. But let’s not dwell on that, shall we?

Birthday Stream

It’s almost my birthday again! Where does the time go? I’ll be 41 years old, my goodness! Another year closer to death. Since I never do anything for my birthday I have planned to do a 12 hour stream on Twitch on Saturday, July 17, which is my actual birthday. I will start the stream at 12 o’clock noon and I will finish at midnight! I planned to do some building in The Sims 4, play some Geoguessr and maybe some other games. Basically just hang and chill with anyone who stops by in chat! It’s going to be fun! I may have a drink later or two as well before the stream ends.

I have made a flyer that I posted on Twitter and Instagram already, to just get the word out.

I am so weird. With that I mean I usually don’t want to do anything on my birthday. I don’t really care for it. And on the other hand I do crave a little attention/validation as well. Isn’t that weird? Anyone else ever feel like that? I’m such a complex human being. I don’t know how to explain it. It’s kinda nice to have the spotlight shine on you. But my inner introverted self is also like: “It’s nice not deal with the attention”. Meh!

But, anyway! Birthday stream! For 12 hours! Mark your calendar! I know I should have posted a blog about it earlier, but oh well! I hope you can make it, even if it’s just for a little bit. I would appreciate that a lot!

Finally a hair cut

I was debating whether or not to cut my hair for the past couple of weeks. My hair had gotten really long. I had locks covering my eyes. I wanted to grow it out, but in the end I decided not to and just chop it off and have a short hairdo. Refreshing, isn’t it?

Reinvented stream

After two years of using the same branding and overlay design on Twitch I finally took the time to reinvent the whole channel! It’s about time, isn’t it? I love the new fresher look and vibe. I even have brand new animated alerts and and transition scenes as well. Having a new design makes me feel motivated more to continue streaming and hanging out with the amazing people in my little community.

What do you think of the new style and vibe?
