Why I started Streaming for a Living pt.2

Now call me crazy, but I wouldn’t go waste 5,000-6,000 dollars on just anything. Especially if I wasn’t ONE HUNDRED PERCENT SURE that is it what I wanted. I mean, I can’t even go to the store and blow fifty dollars without being SURE that I want/need that item. Not because I can’t afford it, but because I just don’t like to waste money. I thought I would LOVE college, but I didn’t. I had to fight myself to go to class and do my homework and that just wasn’t like me. I started missing classes to go to work instead. I just HATED school. I know who doesn’t hate school right? Wrong. I loved school in high school not because of the social interaction, but because I truly loved learning. I had SUCH a passion for psychology and I couldn’t wait to go to college and learn all about it, but once I was there I started to resent the human brain and all of my classes. I didn’t want to go learn, I didn’t want to wake up, and I just didn’t feel like myself. So I finished my semester, barely, and decided that was it. I wasn’t going to torture myself any more. I was DONE with school. At least for the time being. I started paying on my 6,000 dollar loans and I don’t feel bad about that. My school loans don’t make me want to cry. They’re manageable because I’m doing what I LOVE to do and I’m make money at it. I do not regret going to school. I got my first year for free because I did it my senior year of high school. I paid for my sophomore year and had about 35,000 in scholarships and that 6,000 felt like nothing, but I just didn’t like it.

Now I could definitely see myself going back; I am honestly not even that far from my degree. Actually, I am a little over halfway through and I am happy I got the classes I did out of the way. Aside from my journalism class, all of my classes were requirements and they will transfer just about anywhere since it was a private university. All-in-all, I still don’t regret pursing this dream. I am so THANKFUL for my parents, my fiance, and my future-in-laws because without them, especially without Dakota I don’t think I could be where I am today. Dakota made me really think about whether or not I really wanted to make this decision. He didn’t just let me rush into it and he made me finish out my semester which I don’t think I can thank him enough for because looking back that would be the only thing I would have regretted about all of this. My parents are amazing for letting me stay with them because seriously I don’t know how I could afford to live like I do if I also had to pay for an apartment. For them to allow Dakota and me to stay with them and avoid renting completely is so generous and I don’t thank them enough. They deal with a lot from me and I know they were NOT happy when I decided to stop going to college, but they didn’t kick me out. They chose to understand and support me as they always have.

I also got the opportunity to fully watch my brother grow. I’ve seen him start high school, go through his first big heart-break, get his drivers permit, and I’ve been able to be here for him. Even if we may fight I know that these years are crucial to him and I am extremely happy I was given the opportunity to deepen my bond with him.

    Rolex isn't new to this game. They were even replica watches uk part of the 1960 Deepsea mission just as they were with the 2012 mission. Aside from merely being a sponsor, the brand developed a new Rolex Deepsea watch to go down with the ship. Most dive watches are pressure tank tested. Meaning they go into special dry tanks which rolex replica simulate water pressure and test to see if air leaks into a watch case. That's useful and all, but Rolex replica watches sale wanted to test its new experimental watch as deep as possible in real water. Strapped to the Deepsea Challenger's robotic arm was the new, not-likely-ever-for-sale rolex replica sale Deepsea Challenge watch. Robots - as our future overlords - will apparently also prefer to wear mechanical watches. In a sense the story of the watch's mission is rolex replica sale almost anti-climatic. It went down to almost 11,000 meters and came up just fine and rolex replica without a hiccup.
