“Be who 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 that 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,? I frequently need help (with the games that is) and advice, although don’t always think I will take this 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
