How YOU Can Be Apart Of My Journey

I officially decided to work towards self-employed/working from home due to having no luck finding a job that is right for me. I feel I will perform better if I am in a job setting that is controlled. My mom does not agree. But she is not in my head nor does she understand the demons in my head. No one knows what best for you than yourself. I have several ways to accomplish this. Even if it’s not to live off on, at least I’ll have some money in my bank account. Even if I get $100 bucks a month, it can at least get me started. I will give you some examples of how you can be apart of the quest. When I am successful, don’t you wanna be like ‘I helped her get to where she is.’ I will remember you when I am successful. I will never forget the people who inspired me to do what I do.


How You Can Be A Part Of My Journey

Telling Your Company About My Blog– If you work for a company, especially a new one, your company most likely will need someone to get the word out. I can write a blog post that represents your company, brand etc. I did a post like that for Grammarly. Click here if you wanna read it.

I also reviewed an app called Freeprints. Click here to check that out.

I feel this can be a start for my Freelancing career. I mostly write about autism and mental health. However, I write about other topics because I don’t want to limit myself.

Patreon- I have a Patreon for my art and my YouTube. I wanted separate accounts because I want my art business and my YouTube stuff separate. If I have multiple things on the same Patreon, I feel this will confuse the supporters. So I made another Patreon for my YouTube to make things easier. This is my art Patreon and this is my YouTube Patreon. I have some awesome rewards in store for those who donate. For instance, you may get access to Patreon-only posts. Say I get some equipment for my YouTube or art, you will be the first to know and you will be thanked in a post.

Buying My Art– I make blender renders, cosplays and photography. I opened up a shop for my art. I use Redbubble because I know of them and have used them before. I rather use a site I have heard of than a site I don’t know about and their quality is rubbish.  Redbubble allows you to have the art in a phone case, apparel, home decor etc. I will also link back my store art to my Pinterest account to take you right to the image you may want.

Requesting Commissions- I have a blog post regarding this. It explains my requirements for commissions. I wanna set little ground rules as to what art I will and will not accept. My rates are not expensive. Check out my Deviantart page so you get a feel of my work. Also, I could have made a render you already may want. If Fiverr is easier for you, you can pick the service you want and message me. I suggest messaging me before you order so I get an understanding of what you want. I want to make sure I got down what you want.

I also will have affiliate links in my blog, this means I get a small reward for showing you some neat stuff. To make it less annoying, I will just review the product and add the affiliate link(s). Say I have a microphone I think the reader may want, I will write a review of that mic and add the affiliate link(s). I will just pin the blogs with affiliate links on Pinterest. I don’t want to annoy the reader constantly plugging links in my blog.

Telling your friend about this blog– You can tell your friends about my blog if you cannot afford to support me. Sharing my posts to your friends, family etc is a great way. Or you can have me write a guest post on a topic you’ll like. Preferably what I blog about on here so it makes more sense.

Follow My Steemit blog- I have a Steemit blog, on Steemit, you get money when someone upvotes your posts. This is a free way to support me if you may not have money to buy my art or for Patreon. Matter of fact, this is a preferred method since it’s costing you literally nothing.

You can also purchase my new eBook! I wrote a book about autism to showcase how we struggle with jobs. How it’s hard for us to find and keep a job. Get your copies here!

I don’t want this to look like an e-beg post, but more of a helping hand post. I want to eventually move out of my folks’ house and be on my own. To be in a setting better for my well being.

I would love to achieve these goals in the next year or so. I believe I can do it. It’s so much better than having a job that will make my mental health worse. My mental health is more important than anything in the world. My mom may not agree with working from home because I need to ‘get out’ but if I work from home and make more money than I would on a retail job, I can get out more. If I was on my folks’ car insurance, I could go to a park just to get some air, go to the mall and walk around, get some exercise.

One thing I learned is to prove people wrong, I can’t prove with words working from home is better for me, I have to prove it with actions.


Menard’s Greenhouse Flowers

My folks went to Menard’s early this spring, and we went into the little greenhouse or whatever you call it, I decided to get some photos of the greenhouse flowers. This was back in April or May. I don’t remember the exact time. These photos are up on my Facebook Page. However, you have to look through my photos. They will be on my Instagram at some point. I also have a new Twitter for my work, give it a follow if you wanna.


Pink is one of my favorite colors. These flowers are so pretty, remember, this was taken back in the spring. I’m so sad the summer is over. I’m gonna miss taking flower, dusk, cloud photos. It’s just not as beautiful in the late spring/summer. See you again in May 2019.


I guess having folks that are slow shoppers has its advantages. I got to take this photos while my folks take their sweet time. My mom eventually picked that I was into photography. She had nothing bad to say about it. My mom has always insulted my interests when I was a kid/teen.



Purple flowers? Purple is my favorite color! I really wish I can buy some flowers, to keep on the porch to glam it up, kinda sucks when you want some things but no money for them. Maybe this will change soon.


I think I took the same photo again, whoops. I get a little carried away when I see things worth taking a photo of.


This got me vibes that I was in a rain forest of some sort.  I hope 2019 provides me with photo ops just like 2018 did. In a few months, you will see snow photos. So I am trying to do this as much as I can.

Menard's green house

Again I got carried away. Or I think I revised this photo to add my watermark.

So that is all the photos I have for now. If you wanna get into photography, check out this blog post, it has everything you will need. The blog will have affiliate links, it won’t cost anything extra, I get a small reward for showing you cool stuff. Want to blog more professionally? I made a sponsored post about Grammarly. Check it out if you wanna.

Be sure to check out other blog posts I made. I did my golden hour photos, flower photos if that also interests you. I will be adding art to my vlog channel soon, so subscribe if you’re excited about that. I will no schedule my blog posts to make life easier. I will post Monday and Saturday at 9am CDT

Struggles Of A Small YouTuber

I want to re-write some of my old blog posts, because I was not fully satisfied with them, and want another chance. Plus, they probably had grammar mistakes, however, I am using Grammarly to catch most of the mistakes. At the time I felt I could have done better, I will delete the old blog once the new version is up. This is going to be about struggles of being a small YouTuber. People overlook how hard it really is to be a small YouTuber. Most people look down on smaller channels, assuming our content ‘sucks’ just because of our size. Instead of telling someone their content ‘sucks’ how about leave some constructive criticism as to what could be better. Telling someone their content is bad is not constructive, however, telling them what could be better like editing, would be more acceptable.

Small YouTuber Struggles

Everyone who starts YouTube will start small, look a Pewdiepie, he has 64 million subscribers ( from the last time I checked) I’m sure he didn’t wake up with 64 million subscribers. I feel that it’s harder when you’re small than when you’re big.

Keeping My Viewers Engaged- This is a major struggle that I had, on videos that I had were 2 minutes long, people left around 1:15 seconds, and I could not figure out what was causing them to leave. I feel as though when you’re small, you won’t have active followers, therefore, you won’t get feedback as to what you’re doing wrong. And you have to find out the hard way what’s putting people off in your videos. I mean, people should be helping their fellow small YouTubers. Not sit there watching them make the same mistake over and over. I posted to a group about this, one person said they noticed in my videos my camera angle was too low and didn’t bother to tell me in a comment. And I had to find out the hard way the camera angle was putting people off or could have been part of the reason. It’s good we have people like Roberto Blake, I should have been looking him up and seeing what he has to say since my followers are gonna sit there while I keep unknowingly making a mistake putting off viewers.

Affording Equipment- In my defense, this is the hardest part about being small, lacking the equipment or the money for equipment. Most small channels start when they are teens, and teens, legally, cannot work full time to save up for gear. Teens can only work maybe 4-5 hours, 3xs a week. They probably will make 100-200 dollars per check, which isn’t a lot to put into equipment. There are people who also cannot get a job due to, not being able to find work, cannot work due to a mental/physical illness or disability, or cannot hold down a job for some reason. Solution? Small channels create a Patreon to help with equipment expenses. Sometimes they are told to ‘get a job’ and the commenter has no idea about the creator’s situation. It annoys the heck out of me when people tell me to get a better { insert item here} and I have to tell them that I cannot afford it, that I have no money coming in what so ever to put into equipment. I will re-write my autism blogs so I will provide more information as to why I cannot get a job. Another struggle is said equipment breaks, and the creator has no money to get it fixed/or get another whatever. Versus a large YouTube who is making enough and can replace/repair their gear when they get paid again. Another thing I wanna say is most small channels are shamed for starting some sort of crowdfunding. People just do not understand said creator’s situation. One asshat made a video ranting about these people telling them to ‘get a job and buy it themselves’ little does he know, Joe is in poverty, his job doesn’t pay enough for equipment, it barely pays for him to put food on the table. Don’t judge if you don’t know. So, please support your favorite creators.

Editing- This is one of the most important things when it comes to being a creator, editing your work to make it look professional. You see the cool effects most larger channels can put into their editing, look at this video for example. See how she cloned herself? My editor doesn’t have this function. VSDC editor is the only editor that will work on my crap computer. Editing can make or break your channel since so many channels make similar content. Your editing alone can entice someone to stay hooked to your video and subscribe to your channel.  Take 2 people, one uses movie maker, another uses Sony Vegas, who will be able to do more stuff, the guy who uses Sony Vegas, right? One rule I have is to always save your work frequently if your editor doesn’t autosave. You would be pretty mad if you spend hours on a video and your editor crashes. A new YouTuber just starting won’t have top-notch editing skills. It will take time for their skills to grow.

People With High Expectations- I think its kinda extreme to expect so much from a small creator. We are just learning, damn! When my Gaming Channel used to be games, vlogs, and tutorials. I made a video titled ‘My First Vlog’ keyword, FIRST. This guy who cannot understand keywords, shits on my video because it wasn’t what he expected. He shit on my intro, I used a Panzoid intro just until I can learn to make my own. He shit on my personality, he wanted me to put on a fake personality because he didn’t like me for me. He tries to change you if he is not happy with you. He complained about seeing my face throughout the vlog. Um, that’s the whole point of a blog, idiot! He shit on the quality, at the time I didn’t have a good phone with a good camera. The editor I used only saved up to 720P quality and my PC is not powerful enough to save in 1080P. It will save, but it will take forever. He had no idea that I lacked the equipment to make my videos better and proceed to act as though I been on YouTube for 10 years. Like come on, not all small channels can afford equipment like you. Unless you wanna buy it for me, here is my Patreon, donate instead of trashing my videos. I was just making a point if people wanna complain about your content but not do anything that will actually help you. Donating a couple dollars to your Patreon would be more helpful than shitting on the content. BTW I have a Patreon trailer to explain where your money will go and what you will get in return.

People Saying The Same Thing Over and Over- I made a video on my struggles being a small YouTuber before re-branding my channel. I made the mistake of looking at the screen of my tablet rather than the lens. And like 6 people pointed it out. I mean you wanna give feedback, fine. But check the comments, if it was already addressed, then find something else that needs improvement. I am sure the lens thing wasn’t my only problem.

Losing Subscribers- When you lose more subscribers than you are gaining. Not knowing why people are unsubscribing is even harder to figure out. Sometimes YouTube does a monthly purge of inactive accounts. If that account subscribed to you, your sub count will drop. Sometimes people are active on the account to the T and get unsubscribed. Because my subscribers don’t follow me on social media. They could have been unsubscribed and never knew because they didn’t follow me on social media. If they weren’t seeing me, they could have thought I quit YouTube. Tell the creator what you wanna see instead of just unsubscribing, speak up! Suggest what the creator can make videos about.

Getting Views/Slow growth- I dwell on views because I don’t want to put my sweat and tears on a video for it to get little views. My Simself series episode 2 video, only got 11 views and I worked HARD on it, promoted it EVERYWHERE. It seems like YouTube makes it harder by the minute to get views. Before I changed up my content, my channel grew super slow. I was stuck in the 170s since February. From February to July, that’s a long time. Whenever I gained a sub, someone unsubscribed days later, I had no idea what was the problem was. No one spoke up and asked for what they wanted to see. I ran polls on Twitter and people chose not to vote. You cannot just ignore my posts on social media asking for suggestions then unsubscribe because I am not making what you subscribed for.

So that’s all I have for this blog. I have a video on this, check that out if you wanna. Wanna start a YouTube channel, check out this blog on what you’ll need. Wanna blog more professionally? I made a sponsored post about Grammarly, check it out if you’re interested.


Blog Update, Commissions, Patreon, And More

I tend to go off-topic on my blogs, if you have read/seen my autism videos/blogs you know I struggle with the disorder. I tend to go off-topic and people will pick up on it and I feel bad because I cannot help it. So, I have decided to make this blog post with all the information regarding my art, commissions, Patreon and more. When I end my art themed blog posts, I can just link this post and that’s it. So stay tuned so you know everything that is going on.

This way the information can be all on one blog and it won’t be scattered across different blogs and won’t have to link 5 different blogs everytime I post my art. So please excuse the times I slide off the road. Like I said, I have a disorder and cannot control it sometimes. This blog will have all the links you need, but it’s easier for me to have it all in one area.


First order of business, I will be adding my blender renders and cosplays as part of Art Monday. I recently got a push to do renders again, and want to share them with you. If you would like to see my work, check out my Deviantart Page. I am also adding my art to my Tumblr, slowly but surely. I also added my art to my Art Instagram and my Art Facebook. So follow those links if you want to see my work. Those are the 4 sites I post my work to, this is just another home for my art. You know how I posted my flower photos in one blog? Same will apply to my renders and cosplays. My renders for Life Is Strange will be in one post and so on, if I make more, I will make a part 2, part 3 etc.

Follow my main Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram so you know when I will post.

Next, commissions.

Doing Art Comissions!

I will be taking art commissions. Refer to my art social media links so you know my style. I made a blog post about this, want information about my commissions, click here.

The blog post will feature all the information you need to know, my requirements, payment details etc.

Next, support. Next, I will explain how you can support my work. I have opened up a Patreon for my work.

Patreon is a site where you can pledge a certain amount of money in exchange for whatever reward the creator has set. I also can set goals for what I wanna do with the money. The money will go toward a camera, and so I can do some cosplays. I have an introduction video for my Patreon Page.  I explain in the trailer why I started the Patreon page and what rewards I have to offer in exchange for your support.

Next, you can request commissions. I have a blog post regarding the information as linked on this blog. my rates are fairly cheap. I tried to make them affordable.

Next, up, I have opened up a store for my work. This is for in case some people don’t like Patreon or can’t afford a monthly subscription. If you would like to buy my work, click here. The money can go towards future cosplays, a camera and other things I may need.

I believe I included all of the info you will need to know when I post my art blogs. I can link this blog post for those who want information in regards to my commissions, art etc. So I won’t go over the rainbow in my blog posts.

Final say.

Whenever I attach affiliate links. If I made a blog post on a specific topic, I will link the blog post. So when I post my photography, I will link the blog post I made about starting photography, which will have the links you need. Or when I make a blog post about starting a gaming channel, will link everything you need, and whenever I post gaming, I’ll just link the blog. It will be easier than plugging the affiliate links every time.

I am also adding art/speed art to my second channel. So this is something to look forward to.

These are all the updates that I feel I will have. If I add anything else. I will tell you on social media. Just be on the lookout. This can help me achieve my goal for self-employment.

Dusk Photos Of 2018| Golden Hour Photography

This blog will feature the dusk photos that I have taken thus far. I feel it’s better just to put my specific photos in one blog post.  This blog will have affiliate links, which means I will get a percentage of the earnings when you buy the products. It won’t cost you anything extra. The links will be throughout the blog!

I am into taking dusk photos, I find dusk amazing. This year was a great year for photos. Take a look at my flower photos from this year if you’re interested. Hopefully, everything goes well and I can go down south next month and take some photos since I was going to attend a family reunion. But life decided I don’t deserve to have fun and screwed me over. When one door closes, another one opens.

Taken June 2018

There was a pinkish color in the sky, I think I took this around late June. I don’t quite remember. Kinda sad summer is over, and it’s already getting cooler. Usually, when I live, it doesn’t get cold until December.


It looks even cooler when the sun has set. Take advantage of the golden hour, it’s usually the best time for photos.


Kinda looked like a storm was rolling in. There weren’t a lot of storms this year. My area NEVER gets storms. We get the warnings, our area is the warned area. By the time the storm reaches my area, it’s weakened. It would be nice to get storm clips for my Instagram stories. BTW, follow my Photography IG to see my work. I have a blog with my storm sky photos, Stormy Weather Photos of 2017.

early summer sky no watermark

took this early June. Nice isn’t it? This is all the photos that I have as of now. I will post different categories for my photos. Check out these blog posts if you are interested.

Blog Update, Commissions, Patreon, And More, this blog talks about some changes to my blog, they are not major. I felt it’s best to tell you in one blog post rather than explaining it everytime I blog. When I get more photos, I will post my photography.

If you want an example, I wrote a post about Grammarly, click here.

This is to give you an idea of what to expect. An example is, say you have an online school you started, you’re struggling to find students. I will write a blog post about your school. I will list the benefits of your school and feature positive reviews of students from the school as proof you are 100% real, I am sure that’s another reason online business struggle. My readers will consider your school if they are impressed with my review.  I have a series of ways to benefit you.

I am looking forward to working with you. Feel free to contact me via e-mail if you are interested.

Influenster Staycation VoxBox Unboxing

After having Influenster for 2 YEARS, they FINALLY sent me a box. Whenever there is a chance to get a box you will get an e-mail or notification with instructions on what to do. I am not sponsored by Influenster. They sent me these products in exchange for a review. I will provide a brief review of each product that I received.  Check out this video on how you can get free stuff from Influenster.



I tried out each of these products and I like this some far. If you want free stuff,  sign up here.

hair spray

This is one of the items they sent me, it’s for all hair types(even relaxed hair). It made my hair soft and smooth and helped the frizz I get on my ends. The heat makes my hair look like I got electrocuted sometimes. When I roll my hair up, it will be frizzy when I take it down the next morning, when I use this stuff, it helped with the frizz. The company is Eva-NYC and the product is Mane Magic 10 in 1 primer.


This is a moisturizer for your face. It actually smells pretty good. It made my skin soft and started to clear it up since I have a problem with it. You can put it on any part of your body that gets pimples.


These nails are 10xs better than the acrylic nails that require glue. All you have to do is stick them on your nails, hold for a few seconds, and that’s it! And you can peel them right off! You don’t need anything special to take them off. You can even do it yourself or have a friend help you. You can also find these at Walmart and the Dollar Tree ( please note different dollar stores have different things)

shaving stuff

This product is like shaving cream for women! You simply apply some to the area you wanna shave, it’s like a lubricant. It makes it easier to shave your legs or whatever you wanna shave. It even made the area I shaved smooth like a baby’s but.

tooth paste

last but not least, some toothpaste. You can be your own dentist with the product ( I still recommend you visit the dentist) I mean if you cannot visit a dentist at the moment, this toothpaste works as a temporary method. Having anxiety, I do not like the dentist at all and dread going. This toothpaste doesn’t burn, as most brands, I used burned my mouth. I recommend crest products in general. I have been thinking about adding beauty product reviews to my second YouTube channel, however, I wanna see how I like it first. And if I feel like I can commit to it, beauty will be added to my channel. I like having variety because that way viewers will have something else to look out for if they ever get bored with a certain topic.

If you would like to write a proper blog post without grammar/spelling mistakes, get Grammarly, they will spot mistakes that are commonly overlooked. That is an affiliate link which means I will get a percentage of the earnings when you buy Grammarly’s premium version. Don’t worry, you will not have to pay anything extra. I feel this product is related no matter what I am blogging about. Isn’t it awkward seeing so many errors you overlooked? Don’t worry, let Grammarly do the job. If I get any more boxes from Influenster, I will do an unboxing and a brief review.

Flower Photos Of 2018

Rather than posting my flower pics or any other one by one, I decided to put it all in one blog post, like I did with my Stormy Weather Photos. I will run out of names to call the pictures and don’t wanna get repetitive. I prefer to put certain photos in one blog post.


pink flowers edit
My neighbor told me these are PMIs

This flower grew around springtime, around May I think. They wilted pretty fast after growing. My neighbor said they were PMI flowers. I Wish I was a flower expert, to know what flower is what. I feel should know they type flowers I am shooting a photo of. Being in Chicago, the weather changes, a lot, it will be warm one day and chilly the next, and maybe PMI flowers can’t survive in temps lower than a certain amount ( like 70 Degrees Fahrenheit) so that’s my guess on why they wilted, it got cold a few times before Memorial Day.

edited version flower
Taken Back In July

This is a photo of a yellow flower that I took back in July, its one of my best photos yet. I was kinda happy with this photo. I even printed it with an App called Freeprints, it’s an app that prints photos for free ( you pay to ship the photo, but it’s $1.99) I did an unboxing and review of the app. I recommend it if you’re a photographer, its always good to have physical copies of your photos.

white flower edit

I got a close up of a flower that grew in the side drive, my grandpa likes to plant flowers, I’d love to do it someday. It’s pretty fun to take pictures of flowers since nature photography is my thing, I also like to take photos of other things, for fun.

hibiscus flowe edit

This is a Hibiscus Flower, I think my grandpa planted this. It’s pretty cool to see this flower. This photo was edited, but I edit my photos to make them look more clear, I talked about this in The Importance Of Editing Your Photos. I first thought to edit your photos was cheating, but then I saw that it makes your pics look more professional.  It can give you amazing results.

hot pink flowers watermark

I went to the dollar store and saw these hot pinkish flowers. I also printed this photo at my local Walgreens, they print photos for 38 cents a photo. Keep in mind the price varies depending on the size you want. I want to hang my photos in my room, if I am gonna be stuck in my hell of a home, may as well make the best of it, by trying to make my own money and decorate my room.


Saw this flowers at Mariano’s early this summer, and my mom wanted a photo, as always.  I may post photos of the people I was able to shoot. Having a passion but being too broke to fulfill it is not fun. Not fun at all, I’d love to travel and do more travel photography. I like to travel, I feel free when I travel.



Some more flowers from the driveaway.


I won’t be able to take photos once winter hits, I don’t know a single flower that grows in the winter.


The last of the photos for this blog post. If I take anymore before it gets cold, I will make a part 2, but it isn’t likely.

If you would like to buy my work, check out my shop. I also will pin my store photos from my Pinterest account to take you to the photo you may wanna buy.

You can look at my work on my Deviantart profile give it a watch if you like to!

I will post more photos when a gather more, it all depends on when that is. I hope you liked this photos!

Throwback To My Trip To Fox River

Back in 2013, I went to Fox River with a lady who braided my hair. She went there to apply for a vacation house there, and I tagged along. It wasn’t really a “mini getaway” since I was her intern for the summer. But least I had fun. Throwback Thursday will only be temporary, once I run out of things worth blogging about, then I will be down to 3xs a week.


I do have a vlog, it will be a Google Plus share since I need to upgrade my plan to post videos. And the video is no longer online on YouTube since I re-branded my channel.

I’d love to go back to Fox River, for the summer and winter to see what winter activities they have. The tour guild said they have winter activities like sledding.


We went on a tour of the resort, and it is a very nice resort, flip side it there is no cell reception on certain parts, so I wouldn’t be able to post my travel photos. But hey, what good is a vacation if you’re indoors using your electronics and not site seeing and such?

We saw one of the rooms, and I’d have a special way to determined who gets what room if I ever come with a friend. Because part of my travel goals is a good room to stay in, with a view, views are nice!


The bathroom looks nice, I always wanted a bathroom in my room, maybe when I am blogging full time, I can make it happen. There is a toilet in there, its separate from the bath and sick I think.

It has a playground, I did get on it while the adults were taking care of business. Now I wasn’t serious about photography back then, but I made a vow if I get a chance to travel I will take photos if I have a chance to and properly vlog, like vlog when i am about to leave, on the way there, arriving etc.


There is a patio, now this is goals for sure. I’d step out at night even because that is also goals in my book. I might make a blog in regards to my travel goals, things I wanna experience when traveling. Hopefully, when I am a full-time blogger I can travel. I wanna be able to travel the world. I can’t do that working a regular job! You don’t get that many vacation days a year or whatever. Even if I was able to find a job, all I can do is part-time, and I wouldn’t be able to save up to travel, it will take forever vs if I make sat $500+ a month with affiliate links, selling my photos etc


This bed looks nice. Isn’t it?

So, I hope I get more travel opportunities, I will take photos like there is no tomorrow if I get to. I will post some travel blogs, I feel it fits Saturday’s theme which is verity.

If you want to get into photography, here is what you will need. Click here if you’re interested.

Anyways I hope you enjoyed the blog. I could use a getaway!

Life Lessons From Life Is Strange

Your parents always tell you video games teach you nothing, right? So I thought I show the life lessons that Life is Strange teaches. Even video games drop hints on what people do but never learn.

header for blog posts
These are screenshots that I took when I played the game

Life Is Strange is basically like Telltale Games, where its choice based, and what you do will have an outcome. Your actions actually have consequences. And the game remembers what you have done.

So the first lesson is kids aren’t the only ones who can be bullies, adults can bully too. And it’s worse if its an adult. Because if you report it, whoever you tell will most likely side with the adult.




kids are not the only bullies
Max steps in when she catches David bullying Kate

When Max is on her way to meet Warren, she catches David bullying Kate, the game will give you a choice to intervene or take David’s photo. And of course, I stepped in. This shows you that kids are not the only ones who can be bullies, adults can also be bullies. Kate even begged David to leave her alone and he wouldn’t. Adults think they can treat kids how they want to because they’re older, and this is not right, your position of authority gives you no reason to be a jerk.

Next lesson is to be nice and you get it back.

be nice and you get it back

As mean as Victoria is, she is a person, and she probably was bullied before. The bullying victim becomes the bully in most cases. Bullying is not always physical. You don’t have to beat someone up to be a bully, you can hurt them with your words. Now Max dumps paint on Victoria so she can get to her room, the game gives you a choice to comfort Victoria or make fun of her, if you’re nice, she will apologize for being mean and unblock you on Facebook and not post your photo. Moral of the story, don’t be a dick.

Next is people are bullied for their mistakes or past.

people are bullied for their mistakes

It is found out that Kate was drugged at a Vortex Club party. And she did something while under the influence. She was recorded without her knowledge and the video was posted online, and Kate was later bullied for the incident. It goes to show that someone can make ONE mistake, or wanna let go of their bad past, someone finds out and gives the person hell for it. It goes to show its never the victims fault, its the person who did it. People are not in the right state of mind when under the influence. People fak up, treating them like shit won’t do anything.

Next, You don’t get a do-over.You don't get a do over

If you were unable to save Kate, you will see this.

Kate has had enough and she attempts to kill herself. Max heads up to Kate to try to save her. Max cannot use her rewind power, the game is showing you, you do not get a do-over when it comes to something like this. If you pick the wrong speech, Kate jumps. So it’s important you pay attention when you’re in Kate’s room in episode 2. I may make a blog post on how to save Kate if you want to. So if you wanna treat someone like garbage, we’d be mourning the person. There are so many suicides because of bullying, wake up!

The last one is actions have consequences.

actions have consequences

Max learns she caused the storm by constantly rewinding to save Chloe, it was in Chloe’s fate to die. When Max first saved Chloe, that started the timeline for the storm. This shows messing with time has consequences. Chloe even tells you when she pulls out the photo Max took in the bathroom before everything went down, that she wanted to die to save everyone in the bay. Remember actions have consequences.
