Going to dinner, alone. More torturous then I thought. Nah, it was actually great fun. :) However I was tempted at every waiter/waitress who brought by each new delectable delight. I'm a waiter and seeing another wait crew running around is always interesting. How they move, transition, pause, and realign to each new direction. Some carry with one hand others carry with two and others carry with their feet. I'm kidding...
Food needs to be perfect, for the eye and the consumption. That ratio is hard to find.
Water pouring needs to be done efficiently, on time, and before anyone requests it. This applies to all beverages
Cleanup is orchestrated in such a manner that everything can be removed in one or two tries. Only. More professional the less attempts. However! That doesn't mean you should risk dropping items to get it all in one try
Service should all be about the customer. They are number one. Any questions? I love going out to eat and am a little bit critical of restaurants but it means better tips if you are a better waiter/waitress. Go eat out and enjoy a night out!

Everyone has a heart, whether they listen to it or not, that is another question. I think love is a powerful that can drive someone to be better, or twist someone to forget who they used to be. It's crazy, and I don't want to generalize people's personal attachment to it, but I do want to blog about it. However I want to end this little post with, when I see that oh so mystical "one" I hope my head hums: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WJgCiRobMo
"There She Goes"
Go on loving, just don't let it trip you up

Those are the first words that most code developers write. Did you know that? ;) Today I wanted to post briefly, and say hello! Hello to anyone coming from the Glee Gum newsletter. I loved representing your company, I have one more video in the making for them. They are a delightful little business from the East coast, where I am too, and they are "wicked" awesome as we New Englanders say. Thanks so much to all my readers for watching my Youtube channel, following me on all those social media sights and being generally so nice to me! Can't wait to show you more content. Now that it's summer, I have a lot more time on my hand to pay attention to my fans... so let's do just that. Grab a lemonade and kick up your feet. Here we go!

|You serious? I'm sweating|
Take a deep breath of the new season starting. Mmmmm delicious. I love the spring, not the allergies, colds, and pollen. But the green buds, the flowers, even the swirly white clouds. Little rain and lots of warmth. To get those moments where you feel as if you're being hugged with cloud candy. Mmm mmm mmm. What do you love about spring? As I get to work on a lot of new videos. I take moments to just enjoy the world around me. Runs are the best. You see the spring time is the reminder that even after cold dark winters there's warmth around the corner. That if you're down in the dumps that happiness is sure to be in reach. Just got to be patient. Baby steps people, baby steps. I hope you get outside soon, wherever you may be, stop and smell the new baby saplings and the earth. Rich dark earth bustling with new life.

So I'm back! Playlist Live in two words: Awesome sauce.
|WILLOFDC, Charles Trippy, iJustine, Dan, Shaycarl, KassemG|
First let's get down the basics. One half conference and stage where performances and Q&A sessions were held. One half merchandise/booths/meetup locations with famous Youtubers. Good?
I met a lot of my favorites and got to talk with some on my vlog. Right now I thought I could share some advice these ones gave me! Get your mind blank and be ready to capture these messages. Continue reading
KassemG, was nice and hilarious in person. Once this picture was taken, the attendant said we could be brothers. Haha, anyways. His advice was: To be a hit on Youtube or any job. Do not try and create something completely different. Try and create a WAY to present something new.
Then he said come on over here and we hugged. Like men.
Shaycarl and Katilette, adorable and nice to talk to. I went up to them and told them how much I follow them with the Shayloss and the Shaymarathon. How they helped me to see everything positively. One quote he said was; "Change happens when the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change". I posted it on my Twitter and Facebook awhile back and it is my favorite. Because with the stress of a lot of different circumstances, it can cause you to break. Break into a downward spiral or to flip over a new stone and start anew. Thankfully, I took his quote to make this blog, freshen my life up. I'm happy now. I broke ties with my bad influences and am working hard for my dreams. He also told me that each morning when you wake, our brain is in a state where it's neutral. Easily effected, and the first thing. FIRST THING. That we run into in our day could change it to be good or bad. If you choose that it's going to be a good day, it will be. CHOOSE yes over no, you WILL have a good day. To sum his words of wisdom up: Feel good, choose life, and smile!
Supricky06 or Chris Thompson was readily available for a talk and I saw him third! What an amazing guy, he sings, writes parodies, went on a parabolic flight (no getting sick), and bffl's with MGM. I asked him what to do about being nervous. You see as I stood in a room full of my inspirations and role models, my thumb was shaking. My hands were shaking. Me arms were shaking. It was so surreal to be with these people. So I asked him, what do I do? He said this: Don't be scared! Don't be thinking off all the negative and uncertainty the what-ifs. If you look back at my videos, I was really awkward in front of a camera. You get used to it, and soon it's no problem. It's the same with anything else. Do it enough times and it becomes easy. If it's a one time thing then just think positively. Remember where what's important and throw away the unnecessary. Just one step at a time, it'll get easier.
iJUSTINE! Part of the reason I decided to go with iVoiceSteven, shocker right? Apple enthusiasts should stick to the "i"s. She was at a Q&A and explained that sometimes to get big or to find out what you love is to do a lot. Make a lot that shows off your talents and throw it out into the world. See what sticks, then work off that. No one is going to help you and get you to your dream. You need to self-promote, believe in yourself and have your own back. Have a plan, make goals and try your hardest. If you don't believe in what you're doing, the audience will know and you must try your best.
So that was all the memorable advice I got and got out of meeting the Youtube celebrities. I hope you guys get to meet your favorite icons some day. It's quite a treat. If you want to check out more pictures from my Playlist LIVE trip. Go on over to my FB Page for iVoiceSteven. Thanks guys for putting up with this post. More normal sparks of happiness tomorrow! :) Night
