I've wanted to be a YouTuber since my very first YouTube video. It was 2005, I was 10, and my neighbor showed me "Crazy Asian Mother." It shattered my horizons.
Due to my innately introverted nature, I've avoided extensive social interaction most of my life. However, to live is to build relationships that expand my world views, challenge my conception of the universe...and I didn't have that. I felt stagnant, misunderstood, and very much alone. Therefore, I decided--I don't remember how long ago--that I someday must be a YouTuber, and I must be willing to put myself out there for the public to see, and watch, and listen to, and question, and, perhaps, understand. I truly do love people. I love stories, I love the connection that arises between people who spark a momentary intuition between their psyches. I want it, as well, and I am creating situations where I am forced to interact in order to get the footage I want, in order to ask the questions I want, in order to get the experiences I, perhaps just on a whim, want.
Results? Frequent all-nighters, deeper friendships, heartier laughs, and less self-conscious. Loving life.
