Every Dream Requires Certain Sacrifices
Here are the things that take time and my decision whether I decided to continue with it.
Tutoring: This was a rewarding experience. I’m grateful that St. John’s allowed me to tutor their students. And I’m grateful for the Houston tutoring company I worked with to schedule sessions. The time requirement was heavy and sporadic. I choose not to continue… for now.
Volunteering: I volunteered at an animal shelter. I love animals and it was a nice break from a stressful job. The shifts were 4 hours, but many times I would do 2 in a row. Essentially I would “donate” a day. The schedule was flexible but the time requirement was heavy. I choose not to continue… for now.
Lion YouTube: What can I say? I love having this YouTube channel… but the time commitment is crazy. And there isn’t much of a return. I’ve decided to slowly (over the next few months) tone down the amount of content. At some future point I’ll re-examine.
Cardboard Game: I’ve played this card game since I was in elementary school. It’s not a hobby I take too seriously. I spend a good deal of money but mostly because of my YouTube channel. I choose not to spend as much time and only go to “pre-release” or “game day” events. Every Friday is just too much time.
That’s it for now. I think it’s a lot of sacrifices. Not giving up convention going, video games, or graphic design. I least I’m holding those out for as long as I can.
