Aleksander B's Activity
Aleksander B added a topic in Daily JournalsAiming for something betterHey, I'm Aleks. I have been on gamequitters since around september, but kept saying I wanted to start next week with my journal, or tomorrow, which eventually became into not doing anything. My goal here is to write a journal and keep track of my goals. My primary goals is to be more outcoming and talk to people. I have stopped playing video games but I feel like that's all my friends talk about and I really want to do something else but can't seem to figure out what I can do instead. I think my main problem is that I focus alot on my past and how many bad choices I have made. One thing that really makes me depressed is that I used my moms credit card to buy alot of useless crap for around 2000 dollars. She eventually found out and I repayed her everything. I don't know what I was thinking and how I could be this stupid but it keeps coming to my mind every day and I need to let it go. I want to find some new activities I should try out, because I end up having alot of freetime that I feel like goes to waste.
DAY 1 -
Time I woke up: 6.50 am
Time I went to sleep yesterday: 10pm
Physical task: I went to the gym today and worked out for an hour and a half, so I feel alright about it.
Mental task: Today I will read a part of a book, it is about mental health, I also want to listen to a podcast and just lie down by myself.
Projects: I want to work towards my goals of summer. My plans so far are going to Portugal to meet some people I met in France during easter, and I am having a visit from Germany. I want to plan out what we are going to do in summer so I don't end up feeling like it just went by and I wasted my time.
Today was a pretty decent day. I woke up pretty early to have time for school, but I didn't sleep so well so I was kinda groggy and tired in the morning. At school today we had some issues with a project where some files wouldn't transfer from my iphone to the computer so I am sort of mad because of it but hope to let it go sooner or later. In resess I went to play pool with a guy in my class because he asked me if I wanted to, it was alright but really silent and we didn't talk. One of my friends had his birthday today so I just sent him a congratulations on facebook, I want to do something for him like arrange bowling or something like that with a group of people I've recently hung out with but need to find time for it.
What I am grateful for:
~ My supportive family, especially my sister, that has always been kind and caring for me.
~ The fact that I am going to Portugal!
~ Tea, I love the taste of it.

Aleksander B added a topic in Daily JournalsVlog & Text JournalThis video was recorded in one shot, no editing, as I want to keep it natural. Here is my "manuscript" if you want to read it:
When we started in 8th grade at a new school, my friend was good to socialize with new people, but I often just listened to the conversations, I didn't participate . As time progressed my friend started to include me less and less, and started hangin out with other boys in the class, leaving me alone after school playing video games as I didn't know what else to do. Nearly every day after school, all I did was sit and play on my computer for hours upon hours. And I didn't realise that I was playing that much. I got more and more unsocial, and played more and more. This lasted for around 1 and a half years, until I got some new friends in another class that had a gaming interest aswell. I started hangin out with em in the school freetime and sometimes in the weekends, but I still played alot on my computer. My older sister started recognizing all the hours I constantly played for days upon days, therefore she and my parents tried to stop me. But I got really mad at them and had a really bad attitude, I cared more for playing than talking to them. I stopped going to Judo (which is a fighting sport) because I got bored of it. I ended up playing more games and had nearly no excercise except from Dancing in the freetime and the gym classes at school. Some time progressed and I started to experience back problems and neck issues. And I have realised now when I'm 15 that I just sit and play games. And that time has ruined my "life" (I say "life" as I know alot is still ahead of me). I want to make a change
Right Now I am at my parents cabin. Yesterday we played this game, Basicly it was cards against humaninty but in my language, so that was a bit awkward. I have also drawed this (this is for my project in school, but I actually noticed I liked drawing stuff). Also yesterday I watched an origami video, and made this in an effort of making a plane, but as you see it doesn’t fly quite well. All though it was my first try.
My plans for my future:
Some of you may have noticed that I have a YouTube channel. This channel is based on tech reviews, Vlogs and other stuff. I am planning on starting to really work on this channel in about 1 to 2 weeks, since that is around the time when my exams are finished, yea I know that early, In may I am basically just waiting for summer. I am 15 and turning 16 this year, in my country that means that after summer I am going to start at a new school. I am extremely excited because this is my new chance that I did not grab 2 years ago at this school. I have now decided to go film making beside normal studies, this means that I have to have extra long school days, but I just love recording and creating videos, and graphic design etc, so I think this will be a great choice because I like the class type and maybe I meet other passionate people. Two of my best friends are actually going to go to the same school (don’t worry, I chose this independently, they didn’t even know of the class before I told them about it).
Well yeah. That is my current situation and future plans. I am thinking of updating this journal every once in a while as of when I want, but don’t really expect me to post each day, but perhaps in the future? Well see.
Here is the video, be aware this is not my main channel so don't watch the other videos please, they are when I tried being a gaming youtuber. The videos are unlisted so only this link will get you to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLxZwrsXVVM&feature=youtu.be

Aleksander B added a topic in Everything ElseHow to get more attention online?Hoyaa people!
So I'm around my 25th day of Detox (YAY!)
I've completely quit playing and deleted my games on steam. (I've recently played some Wii Tennis with some friends which I really don't see as GAMING, but tell me otherwise).
So I am looking for methods to get more attention online towards my youtube channel?
Any good places to post on forums etc?
Any tips on Thumbnail making, graphics etc?
Maybe some of you know how to make channel banners?
I've discovered that this channel I created has become a passion of mine but being the Ego guy I am I of course want others to see my videos. But these days it's so hard starting from 0.
Push me over the Edge guys!
