Just got my confirmation email that my custom domain for Listed is now live. You can now find these notes under the URL journal.glssjg.com. I'm so relieved that everything is pretty much set up for this platform.

So today I wanted to talk about some rules that I'm going to be laying out for myself for these public journal notes.

Rules

  1. Any long travel trips will be not be posted until the trip is over. Most likely a summary of the trip will be here and on my YouTube channel
  2. names usage will be limited just to respect the privacy
  3. Never post where I live, although I will be sharing events that happen around town
  4. keep the content here decently wholesome for the sake of young readers
  5. Generally, stay away from topics that people will get offended by. I know I can't please everyone, but I'll try
  6. With political stuff I'll say "Do your own research and be confident in who you're voting in."

Now that's out of the way I wanted to give you an update on my YouTube video. From what I can deduce Youtube has been putting my video in the YouTube kids app as a suggestion. My thumbnail for the video is very bright and features kids, so it's been doing really well when put beside other content with less flashy thumbnails. Anyway, the video has passed the 100k view mark and is sitting at about 110k right now. Looking at the data, I think my video is going to start slowing down, but we'll see tomorrow and over the weekend.

This coming week is going to be pretty stressful because of finals at my university. This semester will probably be the easiest one of my university education, one of my classes just requires me to go to an hour event.

I'm planning to shoot my introduction video for my YouTube channel this weekend if I'm not to busy with homework.

I got my butt beat pretty hard in ninja warrior training today, I need to put more cardio in my weekly routine. Biking in the morning will be my best bet, I might even do it with an altitude training mask for better breathing and lung capacity.

As for today's video, I would have to give it to NODE for the entertaining video featuring the game Totally Accurate battle simulator.

Make sure to drink your water, say something kind to yourself and others, and finally be a better person than you were yesterday.

Tuesday April 30th (entry #2)

Hey y'all I hope everyone is having a great day. I'm currently writing this at twelve midnight just to ensure that I nail this habit of taking the time to put my day down.

So last I pretty much pulled an all-nighter trying to finish my design project. I got about an hour of sleep, but I seem to be managing so far.

I'm considering the direction I'm going to take this particular online platform. I don't know whether to write down things throughout the day or just writing everything down at once. I assume that over time I might do a hybrid of both with small notations, pictures, and videos during the day then write a reflection about it and fill in some extra details.

Notable occurrences today were: One of my professors was so late that everyone left the class. I got to take an hour nap. 

Last thing before I go (getting sleepy). I think I figured everything out with my Listed profile which includes: a banner, a possible title for these notes, and hopefully my custom domain with set up by tomorrow.

Last last thing (I know). That video that I mentioned yesterday about being picked up by the YouTube algorithm now has about 85k view which I'm entirely blown away by. Will keep you updated on this little piece of YouTube stardom.

I was pleasantly surprised to find a sweet Sword Art Online piano medley from HalcyonMusic, I can't wait to see if I can play this song sometime soon.

Make sure to drink your water, say something kind to yourself and others, and finally be a better person than you were yesterday.

The start of something new.

Day 1


Hello, my name is Christian. I want to run a brand named GLSSJG. But, where do I start?


I think this is a great place to start. Creating, Building, Doing something. This is probably going to be something that I hope has a smaller community as opposed to the big entertainment company I want to build. These notes will be linked to in my first video, and then I plan just to let word of mouth carry it to whoever wants to hear.


I've been watching Youtube for a long time, and finally, I want to make something. I mean, I've wanted to for a long time, and it seems like every force has been pushing me these last few days. First, there was an old channel. I had stopped creating content on it for a long time except for the random Overwatch highlight every once and a while. Well, yesterday I was changing all my passwords and just happen to look at my featured video on my channel. It was a Doritos Crash the Superbowl ad that I had made with my friends and family. It had over 30k views. It now has over 50k views. After seeing what the YouTube algorithm can do I'm so hooked. The second thing that happened is that I watched this video from Indy Mogul that really pushed me to start.


I'm going to go now and do my homework that's due tomorrow. I'm so excited to have you on this journey, and if no one reads this, then I'll just enjoy looking back on these notes from the day.
