Pull up a chair. It’s time to get personal again. Enter the wonderful world of Matthy again. So much has changed in my life since I stopped posting regularly on here, taking a sort of hiatus to focus on other things in my life. I really really miss doing this. Getting back on here and starting to write again is giving me this rush of happiness and excitement I haven’t felt in a while. It is remarkable. It is like I am filling in a gaping hole in my heart that has been in need of some tender loving care for some time now.
I see that there is no longer a daily writing prompt on here or a Weekly Photo Challenge, two things I really loved doing because they sparked so much creativity in me and fired up ideas. Not that I really needed them but they were like security blankets or safety nets, catching you when you are in need of an idea or afraid that what you are going to post isn’t really that worthy of reading.
So here is some things that have happened…
I’ve restarted my first YouTube channel and it is actually doing pretty decent now and I’ve never been more happy making videos than ever before. I’ve started a YouNow channel/broadcast and have grown that tremendously, meeting and making so many friends across the entire world, some in my own state, something I never thought would even be possible. It has truly been an inspirational journey for me and it is only getting started.
Shaylee, Shaylee, Shaylee, Shaylee. Literally the greatest friend to come out of YouNow. We have learned so much about each other and have shared so many experiences. Fortnite every night it literally seems now. Her mom passed away in October 2018 from Stage 4 progressive cancer. Very sad and emotional moment for the both of us.
There are many others on there that have become such a big part of my life. Within a few months of streaming, I met a nice girl on there named Carolina (last name still up for debate) and we kind of fell into a relationship, talking with each other every day and video chatting, watching baseball games together, listening to music with each other. That was in July 2017, we still are friends to this day and hopefully I want to meet this nice sweet girl someday and maybe start dating her in real life.
I’ve also moved into a new house after living in the trailer park home of mine for almost seven years. It is one of the most beautiful houses I have ever lived in. The bathroom is the star of the show. Probably the most beautiful bathroom I have ever had in a house. The mirror seems to stretch across the entire room and looks like it’s out of one those rich mansions I have always longed to have.
I won a contest run by vitaminwater back in September 2018 and received a choice of either accepting a paid trip to New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles or accepting a $5,000 check. I chose the check obviously. The check came in the mail that I was super excited about but…here’s the catch…it may be fake. I took it to the bank and tried to cash it but they were very skeptical about it calling up random people and trying to contact the company, HelloWorld, that sent me the check. They gave me a website and number to reach. I tried both of those methods but haven’t had much luck yet. There is only one other option left on my quest to figure out if this check is legit or not: going to Southfield, Michigan and getting an answer straight from the horse’s mouth. I will wave that 5k check in front of the CEO of the company if I have to try to see if this check is real and not just a marketing scam. I don’t think it is because why would they go through all this trouble, waiting 8-9 weeks to send me it in a UPS envelope, just to send me a fraud check. Well, if anyone there at the HelloWorld HQ says “oh we don’t know what that is, you should probably contact so and so” or “we really can’t help you with that since the contest was over months ago and we are no longer answering questions” then I’m going to be really mad, pissed actually. But if they say “oh yeah, this is a real check made out by our company, it is safe to cash it” I will literally jump for joy. Guess first thing I’ll do is go out and buy a new iPhone. Then put the rest in a secure savings account and let it build interest. Die a rich man.
Until then my hopes and dreams are on hold of being set for life.
