“Be you are and say what you feel, because the people who mind don’t matter and the people who matter don’t mind.”
I’m not normal – hang on – that sounded wrong – maybe what I should say is that I do not conform to what might be considered to be the norm of a Twitch Streamer. That is probably what makes me unique and well worth a watch. Rather than provide you with a list of things which I am not, it is always better to focus on what I am, that way there will be a much shorter list here. Yes I am a ‘mature’ gamer. Don’t be put off by that – in the world of gaming, the word ‘mature’ just means that I am over the age of twenty two and three quarters. Mature could make you think of a range of things including cheese but don’t worry there is no smelly vision in my stream! Yes I am probably older than your parents and, despite extensive enhancements via the webcam software – I will have some wrinkles but I am mature in attitude and my sense of humour has had plenty of time to develop, including an amazing ability to laugh at myself. With age and looks covered, what’s next – aptitude and ability. If you saw me playing any game when I first started you would have laughed so much at the complete lack of ability, skill and knowledge. If you think I am bad now, you should have seen me then. What you are currently viewing is over a year of playing the games. I’m a novice or, since I am trying to develop my gamer slang – a noob? I frequently need help (with the games that is) and advice, although don’t always think I will take these on-board – sometimes I just need to learn the hard way – make mistakes and move forward! If you think you are bad at any game – just watch me play and you will soon feel much better about yourself. One thing I do have plenty of is resilience and perseverance. I will be streaming every time it says on my schedule because I understand that it is only by working hard, applying yourself and not giving up that you will – and I’m still hoping for this – eventually get better. So that’s me – sorry for the ramble, being an academic and blogger means I rather like the sound of my own voice and enjoy writing a good blog post. I hope you have enjoyed your stay in my channel, if you haven’t then thanks for calling by and giving me a chance – I’m not everyone’s cup of Earl Grey. If you have decided to stay then please don’t be shy, say hello in the chat and interact we (as in the community which is evolving around my stream) are a great bunch. Just keep in mind the quote which I think we should all live our lives by “Be you are and say what you feel, because the people who mind don’t matter and the people who matter don’t mind.”- Oh – one last thing – I tend to say words incorrectly so be warned! – I think I have mastered how to say emote now.
