Two years ago on this date I was a completely different person. I was engaged, living at home, trying my hardest to do whatever I could to scrape by and make a dollar. A week from now exactly, marks the day that I stopped casting full time to get a job to supplement casting. You can watch the video here.
Streaming on Twitch has been one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life. I’ve lost friendships and lost relationships over it, felt disconnected at times and been downright depressed as well. At the end of the day two years later however, I’m a better man and I’m in a better place. I’ve met so many incredible people and been so humbled by the people around me. I want to work harder every day, be better, be kinder and more helpful, be more dependable, for the people in my life.
I’m not sure what to write but thank you. Thank you for everything. You specifically, the person reading this. If you’ve ever taken a moment of your time to tune in and to give me your day, if you’ve ever subscribed, tipped, shared my show, or even talked to me in person or on the net. Thank you for helping me shape who I am today and for being alongside me in my journey. I want to be here for another two years and look back on another video and be amazed as to how ridiculously different I look (When did I get fatter than that video?!) and to look back and remember how I was doing compared to how I am doing.
I’m not stopping streaming, I’m only starting up an even longer journey. I don’t know what’s going to happen in the next 10 years or even 5. I do know that as long as I’m able I’ll be live every day I can and putting out content. I’ll be the best person I can be every day for all of you, because that’s what you deserve for your time. You all deserve so much more, the world and to never have a shitty day. You deserve to feel the kindness and happiness you give me tenfold. I wish I could do so much more for the people that help my life and help me every day. I can only hope that the amount of time you spend in the cast is an ample escape or addition to or from your day.
Sincerely, I love you all. You’re all a part of my life, and even in 20 years if I am not doing something related to Twitch, I will always look back and be reminded of your kindness and amazed at your generosity of your time and your support.
Here’s to another 2 years.
