Happy Father's Day!


[06-21-2020] Video: How to Make a Screen Shake/Earthquake Effect in Lightworks 14 | Editing Tutorials

Well, I didn't exactly write a blog post for this video, but I made a super long thingy above, so I guess that counts?

This isn't the type of video I normally make but a few weeks ago I was looking for this tutorial in Lightworks and there wasn't one so I created a basic screen shake and yeah.

You can watch the video on YouTube here.


[06-18-2020] Video: CREEPER_EXPLORER LITERALLY CLUTCHES WINS LIKE A PRO | Hypixel Bedwars [2]

Yes. Bedwars is fun.

Lesson of the Day: Rest

"Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. (Exodus 20:8, NIV)"

He said to them, "This is what the Lord commanded: "Tomorrow is to be a day of sabbath rest, a holy sabbath to the Lord. So bake what you want to bake and boil what you want to boil. Save whatever is left and keep it until morning.' (Exodus 16:23, NIV)"

The average human will spend a third of their lives resting, and it is no wonder that rest is important. Without rest, we would probably get extremely stressed and upset with those around us. But this verse is specifically talking about rest on the Sabbath Day. In Exodus, God commanded the Israelites to rest and honor the Sabbath Day by not working.

But today, we are going to talk specifically about rest. I guess I've technically been resting from making new videos these past few days because I'm simply pulling up old clips and making them look decent. If you read my other post, I gave up on my upload streak because I needed to rest and take a break from the task.

I think I got carried away. But the point is, rest is important to keep you sane. You can't constantly work and expect to perform at your best, because that's just not how it works.

That's it.

Another new series, hope you enjoy!!

Lesson of the Day: Be Specific, and Don't Assume Things

Being specific is very important, for several reasons. It can help you get your job done quickly and efficiently, and it help you avoid misunderstandings with others.

When someone asks you a question, you usually need to be specific in your response, especially if you're in a work setting. But you must also be specific when you're asking a question, so that the other person won't get confused.

It's also important to not make assumptions when someone asks you to do something. If you think you may have interpreted something incorrectly, it's best to ask for clarification from the other person.

I've made the mistake of assuming things many times before, and usually doesn't turn out well for me.

[06-11-2020] Video: I got friends (finally) | Hypixel Skyblock Isolation [1]

I'm starting a new Skyblock series today with my friends Firemage_X and creeper_explorer. Enjoy. Btw Hypixel Skyblock turns a year old today.

Lesson of the Day: Don't Misuse God's Name

"You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name. (Exodus 20:7, NIV)"

Many people often make the mistake of using God's name in the wrong way, when they say "Oh my God," or swear. This commandment tell us not to use God's name in vain, so if you have a habit of using a phrase that would dishonor God's name, you need to stop.

I really don't know what else to say on this topic, so I'm transitioning over to something else. I've obviously given up on my upload streak. It was too tiring and required too much effort and it was turning something fun into a "chore" that I had to do every day, so I stopped. It was actually kinda relieving to stop uploading every day, because now I can publish videos on my own pace, and I like that.

But yeah, I guess that's it for today. I can't think of anything to write, so I'll end here.

[06-04-2020] Video: The No Hub Challenge [2] | Hypixel Skyblock

I haven't actually uploaded one of these videos in a long time, so I think it's time to come back.

Personal Life

Okay, the real reason I uploaded this video today is actually because I'm tired of having to edit videos every single day to meet the deadline, and I'm only four days into the streak. This looks like bad news for the month...

I still want to try and upload every day this month, but not every video is going to be a tutorial because those take a lot of time to edit and I'm sort of struggling to keep up with the "work". Believe it or not, this blog writing and video making is actually stressing me out when it's supposed to be a fun thing to do. I mean, I'm still going to do it because I think it will be a good challenge. But still.

Anyways, I just decided to publish an old video that I made so that I could take a break today and just relax.

And FYI, I'm actually going to stop the series after this video so that I can start fresh on a new similar series called Hypixel Skyblock Isolation. It will basically be the same theme, not going to the Hub and everything, but I'm gonna try and make the edits better.

[06-03-2020] Video: How to EASILY Level Up the Mining Skill | Hypixel Skyblock

We're going to talk about Mining today.

Personal Life

If you haven't really noticed, I guess I'm going to cover some of the Ten Commandments in the Bible over the next few days. I know this is not completely related to the videos that I'm doing, but I think this is important to write about and learn, and it will also help me keep reading the Bible each day.

Anyways, quarantine from corona virus hasn't been that bad. Before school ended, I got to do my work on my own pace, which was kind of neat. I've also gotten to spend more time with my family. Now everything is slowly reopening, and it looks like the worst is over. But we shouldn't stop praying for those who have lost their jobs or a relative.

Quarantine has also given me more free time, which has allowed me to attempt to upload this many times in a month. I think blog writing and video making is what I really enjoy doing, at least for a hobby, but if I somehow am able to reach a thousand subscribers I could actually begin making money off of this. Honestly, I think that would be at least somewhat impressive to put on a resume.

[06-02-2020] Video: HOW TO GET 325,000 XP PER HOUR FORAGING | Hypixel Skyblock

This is the second video of a ten-day project covering Skyblock skills. Today we will be exploring Foraging.

Lesson of the Day: Keep God First In Everything

"You shall have no other gods before me. (Exodus 20:3, NIV)"

"You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; (Exodus 20:4-5a, NIV)"

As we go about our daily lives, we often get caught up in the moment. We enjoy what we do, and we sometimes forget about God. But it's important to remember to keep God first in everything we do, and to not have other idols. These idols can include anything that we hold over God, including money, power, popularity, and yes, even video games and hobbies. We should strive to glorify God in everything we do, and even when we're doing something for fun, it is important to not forget this.

To me, playing video games is very fun. It feels like an awesome way to pass the time, but I sometimes wonder if I'm making it more important than God. So I need to constantly remind myself that everything in this world is temporary and will never last. Think about it - chances are that in a hundred years or so, everything you've enjoyed doing here on Earth will mean nothing to you because you are dead. But since God is eternal, we should set our eyes and priorities on Him.

[06-01-2020] Video: The Secret to Leveling Combat FAST | Hypixel Skyblock

Welcome to the first video of a 10-day series on Skyblock skills, beginning with Combat. Hopefully you enjoy.

Personal Life

Today I'm introducing a new kind of writing for me so that we can take a break from just doing lessons every time I upload a video. Today's blog is inspired by something I learned maybe a week ago. I was just watching some Hypixel Skyblock videos and I stumbled across a channel that passed 30,000 subscribers in merely about two months. The channel posted videos every single day and didn't break their streak the entire time since they started, and that was really inspiring. So I am going to attempt to upload every day in the month of June and see how it goes. I think it will be a fun challenge, and besides I need to pass the time in the summer...

So I decided to make a 30-day plan for videos, and I have a schedule already made. Now this is going to be really, really hard to pull off, because I obviously can't spend all day recording and editing videos. But even though it's gonna be difficult, I think it's worth the challenge.

One more thing I want to note is that even though I'm planning to post a lot more videos this month, I am trying my best to make sure the quality of my blogs and videos will not go down; in fact, I hope their quality goes up with the small amount of experience I'm getting.
