The Life of A Broke YouTuber
Dont let money get in front of your passion. That's how I landed up being broke and paying $550 a month to live in a crappy run down shit hole. So already you can tell I fucked up big time based on the title of this article. I'm currently sitting in a Panera Bread table because that place has free WIFI I can use. That is where I upload all my videos to all my social media sites; TikTok, Instagram, etc.… I'm currently 19 years of age and a college drop out.
Obviously I cant live like this so I enrolled in the Navy. I leave in 27 more days. I resigned from my work because I wanted to focus on making more content for me 6k YouTube channel. My YouTube channel is Merpuffedy, I post comedy skits and vlogs of my boring horrible life. It sucks. So back to my crazy ass story. The reason why I'm broke and living on my own is because my family saw my YouTube channel. They were horrified and disgusted on what i posted. Frankly because they never think I would cuss and be a young adult. They told me to sit at the dinning room table when I got home from work. I knew something big happened because whenever they make me sit at the table either I fucked up big time or some family member died. My parents told me they found my channel via Facebook notification from my Merpuffedy webpage( one of my social websites).
My mother was crying and looked at me like I never was her son, and my dad was just super angry. They yelled at me for hours saying “so this is what you do on your free time?” blah blah bleh… I just sat there knowing they were about to kick me out. I was thinking what the fuck do I go, what the fuck do I do with my life. Was it all worth it for my 6000 YouTube channel? Well to me it was. I knew I was going to strike gold some day and one of my videos goes viral and I'm an instant millionaire. That's how it works right? And yet none of my videos have even surpassed 3k views. Its sad. It really is. I fucked up my life because I thought I was going to be some big youtuber/ multi millionaire. I just got done posting a skit and that's why I chose to write this. Whoever is reading this, dont ever let money get ahold of your passion. My goal in life right now is to just be happy and have 1 million subscribers one day. I know it will happen, because I believe in myself. And I didn't just waste thousands of hours editing and filming my YouTube videos just for them to not go viral some day. And fuck up my whole family. I dont think ill ever see my family again, ill be that one alone guy sitting in the barracks when its Christmas and everyone's out and with their family. Jesus Christ. I'm coming to a conclusion while I'm writing this that I'm going insane. I sound insane. I feel insane. Fuck. God dammit. Just dont fuck up your life chasing a dream, be realistic. Its like the fat kid who wants to become a Basketball player some day. Its good to have dreams but put limits on them. Farewell who ever is reading this.
