I’m Back With Big Ambitions

Hello there my lovelies,

I do apologise for the lack of blog posts recently, I’ve been extremely busy with univeristy work and work itself. A quick update: I’ve managed to read a few books from the list (which I will totally go into further detail in another post if I ever get round to it).

Recently I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a YouTube channel. The plan is to start a vlog and video gaming channel under the premises that I am a terrible gamer but I am entertaining. I tend to yell a lot and comment on what I am doing, so recording it makes it seem more ‘normal’. I hope to start off with doing vintage gaming: e.g. PS1 and PS2 and then building from there. It will start of light, maybe one or two videos a week and grow as the channel grows. Of course this will have to fit around my studies and work life. Because let’s be honest, I doubt i’ll reach a high enough audience that I can leave my work all together. However, I like the idea of that so that is the long-term ambition. Short term: get my sh*t together, get my lie organised and start researching how to make the best out of my potential YouTube channel (I am not going to lie, I already have the channel name, a Facebook page, Twitter and Tumblr account all setup and ready to go).

So, there’s my plans for the future, potentially. However this may not get up and fully functional until May, once semester ends and the long summer begins.
