Happy Halloween

Well, other than this video I have nothing else much to share but the usual wear and tear of getting up in the morning and toiling a 9-5 job or in my cases 10AM-10PM.  Enjoy the visuals of this haunted house.  It's full of cheap thrills.  Seriously, I don't have anything else lined for up in my arsenal that can be presented this year.  I just feel drained from having to work.  Well, I mean at least I don't have another job or kids at the moment that I absolutely need to make ends meet.  After being depleted of my energy and resources from the work week, I just want to relax.  Yes, I'm enjoying my time right now blogging.  When looking back at this week particularly, I was ravished.  I had to drive to and from an average of 7-9 different nursing homes and house calls a day in two different states, New Jersey and New York, both daytime and nighttime!  If you thought school was unfair, wait until you have a job!  There's nothing more scary than having an actual job.  The stuff they assign you to do can just be unbearable.  I was literally thinking about quitting the whole time when I was on duty.  This is stuff they don't teach you at school, grit.  Grit is your ability to stick with something and finish it.  It's such an important life lesson that one needs to implement each and everyday, especially for work.  The unemployment rate is high, not because there aren't any jobs in America; it's because people don't want to invest their time in those high tech fields that require a lot of education and licensing.  Hell, I don't want to have to lift a finger when dealing with software, coding, and/or programming issues.  I can only make the best of my situation about blogging.  Of course, I've tried to hop on the bandwagon of the technological train, but like most things IT'S HARD.  None the less, I keep striving and reaching for the stars like one day my dreams will come true.

Although there's a whole laundry list anyone can complain about at any given time at work or even at home, I want to make a deep commitment about always being positive and happy.  No, it doesn't take a genius to be positive and happy.  No, you don't need to go anywhere or get a degree from any school.  All you need to do is adjust your attitude, your emotions, your state of awareness, your feelings, your sense of spirit from being down and defeated to being upright, just, uplifting, positive, and happy!

There is so much information out there now at our finger tips to the point we have a very limited amount of time to read everything!  Things I've learned that will change your life!

  • READ
      • You'll get the best results when you get something you're actually interested in
      • Do not waste your time to fake or pretend what you are attracted or interested in because of selfish reasons, like "because it'll earn me money" or "everyone else is doing it"
    • Spend more time at the library or book store if you don't know what you're interested in
    • Make exercise a priority EVERYDAY
    • Stay away from sugary drinks and foods 
    • Having a FLAT STOMACH is what most people wish for in terms of happiness goals
    • Be sure to stock up on vegetables and fruits whenever you get the chance 
    • Be sure to sleep anywhere from 9PM - 11PM every night, as 11PM is the prime time hour when the liver rejuvenates.  
    • Eight hours of sleep is recommended or whenever you wake up naturally
    • Sunlight is the best tool for getting out of bed!  
      • No, you don't need an alarm clock if you don't have something intensive like school or work to worry about  
      • Your body will naturally adjust and regulate itself accordingly without any mechanical, external device 
      • Starring into the sun is actually proven to be a resourceful way of recharging
    • Meditate, meditate, and mediate 
    • Ten deep breaths or twenty minutes of transcendental meditation or whatever you want to call it will work
    • Focus on your breathing
    • To maximize your results for meditation, just clear your mind and focus on your breathing
    • Focus on simplicity 
Well, that's all I have for today.  Time is just flying by.  Today and the rest of the weekend is all I have left, which is really what most people have.  I guess I'm just a little bit spoiled.  It doesn't look like a lot of time for me to just chill and relax.  

Thank you everyone for coming!  Happy Halloween!  I hope it doesn't suck!

My X-Ray Technician Job

Hello my readers!  Well, this is me at my job.  This is what I do to roll in the dough.  Unfortunately, I'm taxed heavily and don't go home as excited as I should be.  Long story short just watch my video!  Please know that I've always been interested in industry, like human resources and how people earn their income.  I just wanted to make this video to give my audience what I do.  As a kid, I always wanted to know how the adults make their money.  I was always amazed by the power of money.  Being able to put a roof over your head or something as simple as putting food on the table was something that always sparked vast interest in me.  Being a mobile x-ray technician was never my first and foremost career path, but it has to suffice.  I'm a very practical and resourceful person, so this is just something that I saw as an obtainable opportunity.

What is there more to say?  I take people's x-rays for a living.  I do everything from the bottom, up.  I've done skulls, abdomens, hands, feet, arms, legs, chests, patellas, pelvis, shoulders, clavicles, L-spines, C-spines, T-spines, etc.  You name the bone, I've shot x-rays before.  Yes, I do have a life skill that I can offer an employer in exchange for an income.  I owe it all to the unemployment office that I now pay taxes towards.  Community college is just as good as any other college.  It's affordable and will get you a job no differently than a name brand college.  Whoever your boss is or what company is, they really just want you to work and get the job done given the limited time everyone has.  No, I'm not saying this is the ultimate solution for college students who can't find jobs; but it's a good option if you find yourself on the receiving end of the shorter stick.

Thanking you for tuning in.  I hope to post new content for next time!  Have a good week!  As for me, I'm just thankful if I can survive each day of my daily work shifts.

My youtube Misadventures!

Well, here is my most recent video I made about the Marvel Legends Iron Man Electronic Helmet.
You can watch it.  I can definitely improve on the quality and sound.  Unfortunately, I need to reduce everything just so I can upload it without it taking a day or two.  I'm lacking high speed internet, so I have to do whatever just to keep up with the John's.  Actually, my housing development doesn't support Verizon Fios.  None the less, I continue to try posting something up.

After pledging I would do a better job at youtube, here are my current results!  I have a total estimated review of a whopping 4 cents and a total of 41 cents using Google AdSense!
Okay, this right here explains everything that is wrong.  I just don't care enough to create well, thought out original content for my audience.  This is what happens to the people you don't see on podcasts who make it big.  This is what it looks like when you doubt yourself.  This is what failure looks like!  No, it's not pretty.  We all know what it looks like, yet some of us are continually stuck in this victimization mindset or blame other people.  We know things are hard, but how do we achieve success!?  This is why I am here.  I want to know how to succeed.  No, I'm not anywhere near where I want to be.  You can definitely learn WHAT NOT TO DO from me.  Seriously, I would not be able to survive making youtube videos.  Good Lord, how come some people have it so easy landing a million views their first time around?  Judging by the looks of it, I'm basically stuck in some kind of youtube Hell where no matter what I do, I just can't make enough to earn even a dollar.  I get it universe.  My youtube skills suck.  I need to improve if I want to achieve a greater audience and better revenue.

There is absolutely no need for me to feel paranoid.  I'm probably one of the least watched people on the planet.  I repeat, there is very little or no need for me to be paranoid.  It's perfectly clear that people don't want to watch me.  Even if I'm actually trying to entertain or audition, I've never made money out of it whatsoever.  Whatever it is that I've used to make people laugh, it was out of pure comedy and not money.  I don't make people laugh for money.  Yes, I do make people laugh at times, but I've never made a dollar from it.  One of my hidden talents is that people can burst out of sudden laughter in my presence, but I don't do it for money.  I don't harness money from making people laugh.  Laughing is something I can make people do, but it has nothing to do with money.  It's more of a spiritual thing to make people feel good or loosen up without having to invest in drugs or alcohol.      

As for my ego, I did what I could do.  I'm proud of whatever videos I've got to upload with the time I had.  Unfortunately, I suffer the same problems everyone else has trying to make an income.  No, I didn't spend any real money filming or uploading my videos.  I got to learn a lot, but I still want to learn more.  I want to improve myself.  Someday, I want to find some kind of substantial income making youtube videos.  Am I anywhere near that step?  I still have a long way to go.  I'm glad I have the opportunity, but it's up to me if I continue to act like this is a joke or not.  I want to take responsibility and make something of myself on youtube as though this was as serious as going to school or a job.  Yes, it'll take a lot more work and effort than whatever I'm putting in now.  Yes, I do need better equipment.  It is possible within my reach, but I need to try harder.  Now, I know I'm not delusional.  These things take a lot of time and effort.  Nothing will make you an overnight success unless you win the lottery.  If nothing else works, work harder.

Thank you for reading!  I hope to see you next time!
