Why i quit going for achievements...
Hello, my name is Ryan or Ry. Iv been playing video game for 16 years and it was only 8 years ago i was introduced into getting achievements. I use to grind going for achievements, even stayed home from school to just play video games. It wasnt until i turned 15 when i really got into watching Youtube, never watched streams or anything like that. I always wanted to become a YouTuber and make content and have a following.
Fast forward to the end of 2017 it was the right time for streamers because of the game fortnite i started to stream on Mixer in December of that year and was doing so good for a month gaining a few hundred followers. After some life shit happened i fell into depression and stopped streaming. So throughout 2018 i wasted tune sitting here doing nothing when i truly wanted to stream and have fun doing it.
So January of this year i made goals and started streaming again. I started doing more for myself like going to wrestling events, traveling, and even going to my first LAN tourney.
I started streaming on Twitch this time around and had 1 goal and that was to get my sub button. It took longer than usual and eventually got it in May. It was one of my happiest days because now i can stream and have my friends and supporters show support in more than 1 way towards me.
I can list of everything i have done for myself this year but all i can say is i am proud of myself.
As of today i have been trying to grind streaming/twitch for the past 2 months harder than every. In the month of September i streamed over 200 hours and worked my part time job of over 30+ hours a week. Also gained 87 followers on twitch and 40 paid subs. Making September (Also my birth month) the best month for streaming i had. Also the community of gamers i met while i went to Austin Texas for a birthday party.
Also as of today ill continue my grind as a part time streamer, try to improve my content as have positive vibes the whole way.
