Realization

In the midst of studying for finals. I am actually still able to post my gaming videos. I will say that I sleep a little less but not much.

I found that I have more fun making the videos now that I have an idea of the direction I want my channel to go.

Within the last few months I’ve made great progress. I now have 10 subscribers and it feels great. This is a milestone that means a lot to me though it’s small.

If you’ve never seen any of my videos, check out my most recent.

 I hope you all will continue to show your support for my channel.

Thank You

A New Adventure

Hey guys, today I wanted to let everyone know that recently I started broadcasting Gameplay on Twitch as well as posting clips on YouTube. I have included links at the end of this post

Currently, I don’t have the best mic so I will not be doing any commentary but it is coming soon for sure. 

Being new to this I don’t quite have a set schedule for my streams or posts but I currently try to stream a on Twitch at least once every week Wednesday @ 1130 pm EST. If that is missed it’s made up Thurday and Friday with no set time. I will always post on Twitter prior to the streams launch. Most streams now are anywhere from 1 to 3 hours and consist of only Tom Clancy’s The Division.

Though, this will change within the next month or so with the Spring term as well as the month following as Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is released.

I hope you all will check out my videos and give me honest feedback on what videos you would like to see next as well as like, subscribe and share to help promote the channel. 

What games would you like to see on stream or recorded?

Life is a Theater – Unknown Author

Invite Your Audience Carefully.
Not everyone is healthy enough to have a front row seat in your life.

There are some people in your life who need to be loved from a DISTANCE.

It is amazing what you can accomplish when you let go of – or minimize

your time with – those draining, negative, incompatible, ‘not-going-

anywhere’ relationships or friendships.

Observe the relationships around you.

Pay close attention…
Which ones lift, and which ones lean?

Which ones encourage, and which ones discourage?

Which ones are on a path of growth uphill, and which ones are going downhill?

When you leave certain people, 

do you feel better or feel worse?

Which ones always have drama, or don’t really understand, know or

appreciate you & the gifts that lie within you? 
Remember that the people you have around you will have an impact on your

life, your values and your income. So, be careful when choosing the

people you hang out with, as well as the information with which you will

feed your mind. We should not share our dreams with negative people, nor

feed our minds with negative thoughts.
The more you seek quality, respect, growth, peace of mind, love and truth

around you… the easier it will become for you to decide who gets to sit

in the FRONT ROW, and who should be moved to the balcony of your life.

Ask your God for wisdom and discernment, and choose wisely the people who

will sit in the front row of your life.

You cannot change the people around you….but you CAN change the people

you choose to be around!

…WHO IS IN YOUR FRONT ROW? 
Things to think about:

If you died today, what impact would you have had in other peoples lives?…

Would you be remembered as a positive inspiration or a wasted soul?

Are you a jealous or envious person? IF so, WHY?

What is your plan to impact your life as well as others around you?

With that said…… Remember, positive energy feeds positive, negative

energy feeds negative. The people who are around you could help in

dictating your future. You are in control of your own destiny. You are

your own worst critic, and BIGGEST “Hater”! No one else could hate you

the way you could yourself, right? 
So take Control of your 

Spiritual, Emotional, Physical, and Financial

destiny…. This is something we have to continuously work on in life,

as none of us are “perfect”!

Udemy

Hi, Everyone. It’s been a few months and I know that you all want more content. I have just been having some trouble finding anything worth discussing honestly. Also, I’m still balancing a new job, a university transfer , self-training, etc.

Anyway, I’m here to talk to you all about a first for me. 

I am a big advocate toward developing your skills and growing through study and hands-on practice. This hasn’t changed; however, in most cases I recommend free content first. This content is paid and actually priced pretty decently, whatever that means.

The website is called Udemy. And so far I have a few courses I am working on. They range from Development and IT to Academics, Health, and even Foreign Language.

The majority I caught when there was a huge discount (these are frequent). And there is a lot of content. One of my Java courses was $20 and includes over 220 video lectures totaling 40+ hours along with quizzes, reviews and, the ability to interact with others who have purchased the course and the instructor. A Web Development course I bought for $19 includes certification exam vouchers as well. Also, all content so far that I have come across includes lifetime access so you can pace yourself and come back for refresher at any time. 

I have recommended this to many of my colleagues and they love it.

One thing I will mention that is a bonus, some free courses exist (though selections are limited and content is often not in depth) and some paid courses include free preview options so you can evaluate the instructors style of delivering content and determine if you want to continue. 

Overall, it is a great tool to utilize if you aren’t able to attend university or your school just doesn’t offer what you need like a class on the Japanese language

Check out some of the free options and share what you think in the comments below.

#OrlandoStrong

This past Sunday, June 12th, there was an attack on my city. Orlando, Florida.

One of the victims, my friend, Cory Connell, was going to be a firefighter, we graduated from the same high school. This man was someone that really cared about other people. You could sense it just by talking to him for 5 minutes. This is the guy that would help in any way he could and in the best way he knew how.

It has been said, that night, he protected his girlfriend during the attack. This I  believe wholeheartedly. That’s just the kind of guy he is.

…was.

Cory was a great person, and an even greater American who was prepared to put himself in harms way to help others and will be missed by friends, family and now, the entire community as he was deemed an Honorary Firefighter by Orange County Fire Rescue.

Now, the media and Internet have spun this story out of control with irrelevant information and satirical jokes.

I won’t provide examples of the horrible things that have surfaced online. I’m sure we have all seen more than enough. One thing I do want to address though is, we have seen our own people, Americans, say these terrible things.

Regardless of who you are and what God you believe in, or don’t  believe in, you must realize that the only thing that matters here is that someone is trying to destroy the American people and, instead of everyone uniting and saying to that someone “we will not fall”, we, as Americans, fight amongst ourselves over the irrelevant.

Here all the information we need to know.

Industry Certification

Hello Everyone,

As I am sure I have mentioned here before, I am a student, and I have been so wrapped up in life, posting got away from me for a while. From the completion of one degree, to the university application to start another.

I’m back now and hopefully I can keep this up for a while until the new term starts. I definitely have a few plans until then.

I have multiple focuses while I am on this break. The main focus I want to talk about today is Industry Certification.  I have a few certifications already that are less relevant now including Microsoft Office Specialist and Adobe Certified Associated for Dreamweaver as well as Flash CS6.

For a Software Developer, the beginner certification included CompTIA A+Microsoft Technical Associate: DeveloperOracle Certified Associate: Java SE 8 , and many more.

Codecademy Upgrades

I’d like to start by citing that Codecademy is a great website that will assist with learning various languages when it come to web development. I have been using codecademy in my spare time for quite some time now and just recently got back to working on it consistently.
