The biggest news happened last, and it's this:
My silly little YouTube video podcast channel Silver Stag has just reached 100 subscribers. After seven years of doing thing on the channel, I never thought I had a chance in high hell of ever even reaching that number ever. It was so many years at just sitting at around 54, and it wasn't going anywhere. I stopped paying attention to the subscriber number and kinda gave up on the channel going anywhere. It became just a reason to get together with friends and talk about geeky books and films with them for a little while.
It will forever be that, for me, but it's kinda nice to know that at least a hundred people like what we have to say enough to subscribe to it.
I know that in the grand scheme of things, 100 subscribers is nothing. But it's something to me, and it's made me stupid happy.
I might be keeping track of my progress on my Instagram account. I might not, depending on how it goes.
I've been having difficulty getting back into art. I used to do it so much, and I really do miss it. I'm hoping that this will help give me the structure I need to get stuck back into it.
Also, it's Shakespear's birthday/death day. We think. I mean, the evidence is anecdotal. Anyway, to celebrate, the Amazing Flatmate and I will be have a feast while having an Upstart Crow marathon. A fine way to spend this day, I think.
I do, however, have to edit a tonne more videos and edit another chapter for a friend, so I might be working while feasting and watching. We'll see.
I hope this post finds you all well. Sending you lots of love.
