The 30 Days Writing Challenge
Why the sudden inspiration?
Just two hours ago I was binging videos of the well-known British YouTube group: Sideman. I was envying their lifestyle and success. And when I scrolled through my homepage I saw videos from other YouTubers like Elliot Choy. This got me thinking hard. These individuals are not much older than me. I’m 22. Elliot is 23? And Harry is 25. It feels weird to say this but I was doubting my life choices. Is there a point in going through 4 years of college and starting working at 25?
But then I realized I was being stupid. Of course, I envy them. These successes don’t come easy. It’s not an overnight success. It looks to be but I’m sure the key to their success is simply consistent dedication. There are probably many stressful, anxiety-filled moments before reaching where they are today. And the thought of that is comforting. Because this means that success is attainable. Of course, luck plays a huge part in their successes as well. They couldn’t have expected their channels to go viral or expect YouTube to pay them so well. But I don’t see a point in bowing down to luck.
If it can’t be controlled anyway, then just ignore it.
Thus, this got me pondering seriously about what I’m doing. Do I enjoy college? Ahh, tough question. I don’t think this is a question I can answer right now, but hopefully, I’m able to within these 30 days.
Slow but steady
Life won’t change by itself, right?
There’s no point expecting life to change for the better if there’s no input from me. It just doesn’t make sense. Furthermore, I’m already very fortunate. So why do I deserve the extra luck?
If life doesn’t change by itself, perhaps it is time to change it.
So I thought to myself hey, should I do a 30 days vlogging challenge? Since YouTube seems like a lucrative opportunity, why not head straight there? It is tempting but I know that the process of filming, editing, and publishing is not as simple as it looks. There’s a lot of inertia and I’m not confident if I can stick to such a schedule, especially with…
