Yo, folks. Something I've thought of for some time now is whether I should set a launch date for all of this content creating...or not. 😕
Is that something that's even done? A launch date. Am I taking this too seriously? Am I taking this too seriously considering how much of nothing I currently have? Or...is that all the more of a reason to give myself a launch date and deadline? 🤔
I don't know for certain.
But, personally, a deadline seems like a pretty swell idea.
This way, I have time to gather the materials I need from now until, say, next year.
At the same time, is it too late to have a launch date for 2022??
Well, let's look at what I need before I start my content creator journey. And before I list these things, I know I don't "NEEEEEEED" these things to start. They're more like things that would make my life easier and more likely to succeed, or so I hope. 😖
Wishful thinking, you know...
- Nintendo 64 USB controller
- Studio or even a small light for my iPod/phone/camera
- This would be for when I stream or record at night
- Is somewhat optional if I use my PC webcam to record at night
- Tripod and monopod for iPod/phone
- I do have a tripod for my camera, so...? 🤔
- Another PC monitor
- This is pretty optional...I hope
Hm, but there are a few things I need done before 2022 as well. 😟 Unfortunately, that might be the hardest part. Which both boggles my mind and worries me.
Things I need done before 2022
- Clean my motherfucking apartment
Which is just...son of a bitch. My apartment is messy enough to require an entire month's worth of cleaning if I tried to do it by myself. If not longer since the mental strain and personal embarrassment would just...murder me. 😓
I don't think I need or desire much. I might even be selling myself short and don't even require anything on this list before 2022; who knows.
I do have to clean my apartment, however. It's pointless to keep putting it off...
As it should be obvious by now, I'm trying to do things in advance. So much in advance. I'm not sure if this if often done, if at all. Which makes it somewhat exciting because I feel that I might be ready more easily since this is a longtime endeavor for me.
I'll be doing another entry later in the month that talks about some of the social "expectations" and possible...ah, I don't know, "dangers" of starting to work as a content creator. Especially on YouTube, which will be a major platform for me alongside this blog.
We all know how YouTube's been lately as a whole... 😒
