Happy New Year

Wishing you an amazing 2023!

The new year is upon us and I would like to take the time and write a blog post to kind of recap this year. Where did the time go? It feels to me that this year went by even faster than the previous year, or is it just me? But, it was a great year nonetheless. I feel that I have changed a lot this year. Sure, there were moments where I needed to detach myself a little bit, but I was aware of my thoughts and feelings, and I got through it.

I have been streaming on Twitch a lot this year and I want to take the moment to acknowledge my gratitude for all the love and support I have received from everyone who came across my channel. Especially to those who have stuck around the entire year. Thank you for making me feel loved and appreciated. In a way a lot of you have dragged me out of my shell more and you all made me feel I can be my silly self and not care about what others think. I gained much more confidence and I am appreciate that a lot. I feel that this can only lead to better and bigger things, and I thank you for that. I am looking forward to start streams again in the new year!

The next thing I am grateful for, or happy about rather, is being back in contact with my mother. Mom and I had a falling out about four years ago and we had no contact whatsoever. Until my dad was hospitalized earlier this year and that brought us back together again. And it has been great since then. Family is back together! My mom is currently 68 and my dad is 73, and I hope to have them around for a very long time.

Since recently I have been posting a shit load of reels/short form videos on Instagram, TikTok and YouTube. They are relatable reels that are mostly cringey, but I am having so much fun with it! Now, I am not the kind of person who focuses on numbers, but they have been doing pretty good on YouTube. On Instagram I even got over 10k views on a few of them. But still, they’re just numbers. I am just having a blast making them, and that’s all that matters. But who knows, maybe more of them will blow up in the new year! That would be amazing. I will continue posting them, even tho many are ridiculously cringey. But that’s the fun part. I don’t take myself too seriously. That’s also another thing I learned to embrace more, which is poking fun at myself, while pretending I am a big deal, which I am clearly not. I don’t know how to explain it. I’m a weirdo. I guess that’s what not taking yourself seriously is.

I don’t have any resolutions for the new year. I actually find having resolutions weird, but that’s just me. Why wait and change something in your life when it’s the new year, when you can make changes right now? It never makes sense to me why people are like “new year, new me” bull shit. The only thing I wish is that only good vibes and good things will happen. And that is all. Of course I wish that for everyone.

So, yeah! That’s all for now, folks! I hope you all have a great New Year’s Eve! Stay safe and I will definitely see you again in 2023! Happy new year!

Happy new year!

It’s 2022, everyone! I wish you all an amazing new year. I hope you all had a great and safe New Year’s Eve! I for one had a total blast. I joined my good friend Aden, also known as Devon Bumpkin, on his New Year’s Eve live stream on Twitch. I drank a lot, I laughed a lot and watching back his VOD a little bit I was apparently quite loud. But I had fun and it was the best way to end 2021! So, thank you for having me, Aden!

Of course I paid the price the next day, dealing with a hangover, but it’s all good. I slept most of the first day of the year. My energy level was low and pretty much non-existing. Tell me, what did you all do on New Year’s Eve?

There was not so good news on the last day of the 2021. TV and comedy legend Betty White passed away at age 99, less than three weeks before her actual 100th birthday. What a loss. The Golden Girls was one of my favorite shows ever. I grew up watching that show. And ’til this day I still watch a random episode of the show every night when I have dinner. She was the last Golden Girl. So sad! I can only imagine her being welcomed into the after life with her former cast mates, eating cheesecake. Rest in peace, miss Betty White! You will be missed by many.

If one has no sense of humor, one is in trouble.

Today it’s Sunday and the plan for today is to have a chill day. A new season of Queer Eye is on Netflix, so I may watch that later. There’s also a new show on Amazon Prime that I am eager to watch, it’s called Harlem. I also need to catch up on this week’s episode of And Just Like That. It will be a relaxing day of couch hanging and watching shows.

Again, I want to wish you all a happy 2022! May this year brings you lots of joy, happiness and exciting things. Thanks again to all for all the love and support you have giving me last year. As you know I am always super grateful. Happy new year and let’s kick some ass!

Happy New Year

Wow, this is the first post of 2021! Happy New Year, everyone! The first couple of days in the new year I have been doing nothing but chillin’. I canceled my stream on New Year’s Day, because I felt like I needed a little break, so that’s what I did. New Year’s Eve was chill for me as well. I have been talking to my online friends a lot, killing time and just do whatever.

New Year’s Eve must have been so different for everyone on this planet. And it’s safe to say that 2020 sucked big time. I hope in the new year we get to see things change for the best. I am over this whole pandemic! I want everything to go back to normal. But I feel it will take a while before the world is completely recovered and at ease. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

So, the past couple of days I have been unproductive. I haven’t recorded any videos yet for my YouTube channel. I felt rather uninspired, which I hope will change soon. Gotta get my groove back, you know what I mean? I have been playing a lot of Grand Theft Auto V on my Playstation 4 Pro, doing missions and stuff. Love the game. I have the game on my PC as well and I used to stream it a couple of times on Twitch. I am pleased that I am further with the game than when I was playing it on my PC. I planned to play some more today, but I was forcing myself to take a little break from it, so I finally started watching season one of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK!

Tomorrow I will start getting back to my regular streaming schedule again, my first stream in the new year. We’ll probably build in The Sims 4 again, but I don’t know yet what to build. I’ll just make up something quickly before I go live. Or find some inspiration online, that helps too. So, I hope to catch you all when I am live!

But, yeah! I hope everyone had a great start of the new year. And I really hope that the new year will give a lot of people something better, for everyone. All I can say is that I will send each and everyone of you positive vibes. And I am reminding you that we’re all in this together. Try to have a positive mindset, okay?

I don’t have any New Year’s Resolution. I don’t do that. People often have resolutions for when it’s a new year, but not me. Why wait and change something when it’s a new year, while you have the chance to make changes before a new year starts? It never really makes sense to me.

Enough rambling for now! Again, Happy New Year! Be good and be kind!
