The Beauty of Love
Once again, I’m attempting to turn my life around and break the chains that sin has on my life. I know it won’t be easy (if this isn’t the latest attempt isn’t proof enough, what is?) but I know it is something I must do. I’m not doing this because it is the popular thing to do but because it is the right thing for me to do. Some may scoff at me and say I’m just doing it for some reason like money but to me, my spiritual life is the most important thing that I have. Money may be important but it pales in comparison to where my soul will live for eternity after this body’s death and what I do on earth will influence what that will be like.
I urge you to take a look at your life-like I have and ask yourself “Is this the direction I want my life to travel, and if not what must I do to change the direction I am heading?” I’ll happily talk with anyone who wants to and tell you about the One who wants to be your Lord and Saviour who I have chosen to give my life fully to. 😀
I will likely be streaming less in the next few months as an election can be called as early as February 2nd. I have volunteered my time to door knock for the local UCP candidate’s campaign and will be doing so this Saturday afternoon after a meeting. As I do not drive, I will be spending my effort in Camrose alone. However as a Board Member of the local constituency, I catch rides to meetings outside of Camrose, like the one next month which is scheduled for Tofield.
I usually don’t stream on Wednesday nights because I enjoy watching the Adults Only Minecraft live stream on YouTube those evenings. It’s always fun to watch and learn something new on that channel and to learn about various data packs and other stuff that they choose to run on their server for that season’s live stream.
It’s annoying to stream without any viewers. Yeah, I’ve only been streaming for a few months, but it would be nice to have a regular audience to interact with as I’m playing the game I’m streaming that night. It’s more fun when I have people to chat with as I’m building or playing. Building a city for me is boring unless I have someone to chat with as I’m working.
I’m playing Forge of Empires now as WhiteKnight30 (feel free to send me a friend request). I just got started but I am enjoying the game so far and am going to see if there is an app for it on my iPad. It should be a fun game for me to play when I am bored especially if there’s an app for it on my iPad.
I’ll be streaming tomorrow afternoon and Sunday afternoon. Tomorrow, I got to go Christmas gift shopping after I wake up before I begin my stream, but I should be live around 3 pm or so (watch my Twitter account for the announcement). I’m planning on streaming some more Surviving Mars tomorrow and Sunday as it’s a game I enjoy and have fun playing (and I’ve been told that’s the most important thing to remember). I’m glad I’m off until Christmas Eve as it means I can be rested up and ready for the holidays. I’m also not recording videos for my YouTube channel, but I’m two weeks ahead, so taking a week off due to the busyness of Christmas won’t hurt.
I won’t be live streaming late at night anymore unless it’s part of a stream that I started earlier in the day. It’s not worth the people who try to encourage me to kill myself while I’m streaming Minecraft or the other crazy people I’ve seen in my chat late at night. Besides, I just finished a five-hour stream and got one follower out of it, for four total gained this weekend. That’s nice, but I was hoping to pass the fifty I need as part of my push for affiliate status on Twitch. I’m also not getting the three concurrent viewers either, the other stat I need for affiliate status. Hopefully streaming earlier in the day will result in both of those getting accomplished, no matter what game I want to play that day.
I won’t be live streaming until Friday because I working to get an extra week ahead of when I schedule videos to be released to the public on my YouTube channel. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will be too busy for me to create any content, so rather than falling behind, I am planning on taking the week off from creating videos for YouTube. I will probably relax and work on other projects that I’ve been putting off due to a lack of time except for Christmas Eve and Day which are already booked solid with events with family and church.
I barely got a shower today and it took longer than I would like thanks to poor water pressure, probably because the apartment shares a hot-water tank with the other two in the building. It’s just one of many reasons I want to save up enough for at least a down payment and buy myself a house. The poor wiring here is another issue I’d like to leave as well…
