I had a great reunion this past weekend, but now it’s time to get back to normal things. I did a couple of live streams yesterday after I got home (one after 2 and one at 7:30 or so) and will not be doing one today even though I will be playing Minecraft this morning before I have to go to work this afternoon. I will be starting a modded 1.12.2 Survival world so that I can eventually build Loyalty Hall to display my awesome Twitch followers (and eventual subscribers) and Patreon supporters! Right now though I need to go have a shower, then it will be time to play so take care for now!
I’ll be busy this weekend attending my family reunion here in Camrose and I doubt I’ll have any time to stream to Twitch. A lot of relatives are going to be there and a lot is planned, and I’ve volunteered to help out with the computer-related stuff (and I’m getting paid to do so). I just hope this summer flu I’ve got goes away by tomorrow or it won’t be entirely fun for me…
I’ve launched my Patreon page as well as my own Discord server for my Twitch fans. I really want to be able to stream more often for my fans on Twitch and have decided that this is the best route for me to follow at this time. I’d also like to reach the three concurrent viewers and fifty (50) followers needed for affiliate status with Twitch.
I’ve already built Loyalty Hall in my single-player world of Survival City, and in this morning’s live stream will be adding my current Twitch followers to the Twitch hall there. I’d like to take this time once again to thank them for following me on Twitch and showing their support of my channel. The fact that I’m already a fifth of the way to the followers needed for affiliate status is huge IMHO!
I hope that if you enjoy watching me on Twitch that you will consider to support me on Patreon and/or Twitch by following me there as well. 😉
I have decided to put off grocery shopping until tomorrow morning despite my decision to get up early today to get it done before my live stream. It was an easy decision after I saw how little money I had left in my checking account, and needed to transfer some money from my savings to get everything on my shopping list. Add in the fact that it was almost 8:30 am when I made the decision and I start live streaming at 10 am on the days I stream (like today), and you can see where I needed to manage my time more efficiently.
Tomorrow is a day off from streaming (and it takes a day for the money to transfer between a savings account and a checking account) so I’ll have the time before work in the morning to go grocery shopping without having to rush. Yeah, I won’t have my yogurt or waffles for my breakfast tomorrow, but I can go without for one day. 😉
Yesterday, I learned something about my health. It turns out diarrhea is my body’s way of cleansing itself. It’s trying to cleanse out something that could hurt me. What that is, I have no clue, but according to what I read, it should last another week or so. So until then, I’ll have to stick close to places with accessible bathrooms. 😉 If it gets worse (blood in it or other symptoms show up), I’ll go see the doctor for some medical help.
I also learned that some food can help me cut this health issue down. Such foods include:
- Liquids (especially fruit juices which can help keep up necessary vitamins and minerals the body needs)
- Probiotic yogurt
- Foods high in fiber (can help to solidify the waste and cut the frequency of using the toilet)
There are also foods anyone suffering from diarrhea should avoid. To read the list and to see some suggested home remedies of what to do, read this article.
I also shut down the blog hosting aspect and the ads on my site and returned it to a plain blog for me. I have also added a portfolio (thanks to Jetpack) to showcase my art and photography. (Why use an external site when I pay for hosting and can do so myself?) I am considering adding donation links to Liberapay and PayPal after I start posting my work here.
Finally, I’ve added an indicator to show when I’m streaming on Twitch.TV, and it links to my account there. I did a live stream yesterday morning for the second time (I also did one on Friday night.). My next live stream will take place tomorrow morning at 10 AM MDT, and will be me playing Minecraft on the Hypixel server. Until then, take care until I post here again or you watch me live stream on Twitch!
I have a strong need to organize my time better. With the lack of clean dishes in my kitchen, it’s staring me in the face. Yes, I have days off coming up this week in which I could wash them, but that just makes me lazy right now. Some might say that I’m saving my strength for my work shift this afternoon and evening, but that would not be entirely honest. I can easily do a load of dishes this morning and not get that tired. It’s just a matter of organizing my time wisely.
Lately, I seem to spend all of my time in front of my computer playing games or reading fanfiction (with the occasional ripping of a music CD to my computer to add it to my digital music collection). This might be excellent for me in that I am keeping busy, but I’m not getting done housework sitting in front of my computer and thus am wasting valuable time. After all, once you use up some time, you can never get it back. On my days off, I also didn’t do any streaming like I said I would, so in that regard, I also wasted that time (and also didn’t wash many dishes either).
I will leave now to take a shower and then wash some dishes before I have some fun before I need to get ready for work this afternoon. Take care until the next time I post here! 😉
I’m tired of not feeling 100% these days and I want better health! Whether it’s my stomach that’s giving me pain or the running to the washroom three and four times a day, I want it gone and to start having back my health again! I don’t like living like this and I really hate working feeling like this. Whatever is causing this, I want it gone and out of my way of living a healthy life!
I’m hoping that my landlord will agree to allow me to run my business from my apartment because if he doesn’t, I will have to disable the adding of new sites until I can afford my own place (whenever that would be). Being able to work from my apartment would be a benefit to my health as I wouldn’t have to go out amongst the elements when the weather was nasty just because I had to work.
I’m going to try streaming again, but instead of using YouTube, I’m going to be using Twitch. Why Twitch? It seems easier for me to work with, and it even recommended an app with integrated login support called Bebo. Twitch is also designed for game streaming whereas YouTube is more focused on recorded videos.
When will I be streaming?
I will be streaming 3-4 morning a week around 10 am or so. I will never be streaming on a weekend, as I already have Bible Study (and sometimes coffee afterward) on Saturdays and church on Sundays. I may also sometimes stream in the evenings after work or in the afternoons on my days off (except for the first Saturday of each month which I have a WordPress Meetup to attend in the afternoon for an hour or so at 2 PM).
What games will I be streaming on Twitch?
I have the following games installed that I will be streaming to Twitch (not my full list of games, just ones I plan to stream):
- Minecraft (modded with FTB Horizons III for 1.12.2)
- Cities: Skylines (a couple of DLCs installed)
- Software Inc.
- Academia School Simulator
- Railroad Tycoon II
- Surviving Mars
- Rollercoaster Tycoon Deluxe
- Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 Platinum
- Airport CEO
- Stronghold HD
- other games on my Steam wishlist
There are a couple of games that are installed on my computer which makes them not suitable for streaming – either due to them being a clicker-like game (AdVenture Capitalist) or their content is not suitable for younger viewers.
What can my readers do to support me?
Most importantly, watch the streams on Twitch! Having viewers means a lot, and if you are a member, follow my channel – you’ll get an email when I go live! I’ll also be announcing my streams via my Twitter account, so follow me there if you have an account! If you love what you are seeing from me, you can also support me financially by either tipping me via the Bits system in Twitch or via the donate image link there (payments are processed via Paypal for the donations)!
I look forward to streaming soon for all of you who enjoy watching people play games!
