This is going to be a long lost so thanks to anyone that reads all this!
It's been about half a year now since I've ventured into the world of streaming and I've learned so much about myself and what people think of the decisions I've made with my life and how I have been with my new career path.
At the start of my path down twitch I found myself with very little time in the day trying to balance my love for barbering and my love for streaming. I couldn't handle juggling wanting to work an 8 hour shift in a shop and 8 hours being live on @twitch (even though in the beginning there were only about 2-3 people watching me). So I decided long and hard about what I wanted with my life and what I wanted to see myself more successful in. I had a lot people judge me about leaving @greymatterla which was my dream as a barber to be a part of. But in the end I loved being behind the camera and creating content with games, I've played games all my life and I wanted it to be my life.
The beginning of streaming was very rocky and still is rocky to this day, technical issues, working on graphics, editing, live visuals, creating quality content for the stream, and always having a energetic and same level personality 8 hours straight so when people come watch me on there free time I can give them something enjoyable. Also we make little to no money as I do not work and I gain little to no support on my channel to this day.
So fast forwarding to today, where we average about 20-100 people watching every time I'm live is honestly a blessing in my opinion. Even having 1 person was a blessing. Our income is still little to none for the stream which can cause a lot of sorrow and a lot of doubt sometimes. I wake up sometimes thinking how can I change things, how can I be able to make this my life? But every person that comes into my channel has shown me the possibilities, the potential, the love for something that can be more.
Basically what I want to vent about is that I'm really really happy with my life, and this will be my career even if it kills me. Dreams won't happen unless you grab that fucker.
You guys inspire me to do this everyday: @_mrs_assassin_ @shroud @dakotaz
