Today was the second day that I went to work out at my gym in the early morning. It felt good to get up and eat a quick breakfast and then to head over. I have a long way to go until I am remotely close to as fit as I want to be, but it is a nice feeling knowing that I am starting to get into some sort of a morning routine. Ideally within a few weeks I will be completely used to waking up early and working out.
And not only is waking up early, eating breakfast, and working out extremely healthy for me both physically and mentally, it also is beneficial in itself as a routine. Routines are very important for human beings as they are a sort of answer to the question of life.
Why are we alive? Good question, I still have no idea and I am not sure if I ever will have the answer. Nonetheless, human beings are alive and thus we need to find things to do. If not for half-solving the question of life, at least for distracting us from thinking about it. Routines to this. They are the regular things that we do every single day. And they are very healthy. Routines also can be anything. They do not need to be extremely complex, they can be very simple such as waking up at a certain time and taking a walk. For others like me they might be waking up in the early morning hours so that I can sign autographs on the bare breasts of my legions of hot female fans, (this I have found is the answer to the question of life, I lied earlier I do in fact have the answer) but for the average person it does not have to be this.
Just get up everyday, I highly recommend in the morning too. You will feel better. And if you were like me, who slept in a lot, you will also realize how much time that you have been wasting away staying in bed and also how you do not need all that additional sleep that you thought you did.
Currently my routine is to wake up, eat breakfast, go to the gym and work out, and then come home and write a Blog Post. My other hobbies that I am pursuing are Chinese Lessons which I try to take 3 times a week, and snowboarding which I try to do once a week. Alright, time to wrap up this blog, Chinese time!

Today I changed my twitch name. I am no longer fb_lurker. I am now NolanTV. Many people have been asking me why I changed my name and I know they will be asking for a good while so I am writing here to answer.
Recently I have started working on a YouTube channel with my friend and editor Niki. For the last few days Niki and I have been working hard on coming up with a name for our channel. While we were discussing names he told me about how SxyHxy changed his name to just Hxy because the name gave away the unfortunate connotation that he was a sex streamer and thus he was losing views and channel support.
This got me thinking about my own name fb_lurker. Sure I think it was a creative name and a little funny, but I know that people in the past have told me that it was a creepy sounding name. And they were right to be honest. Lurkers are creepy. My name is lurker. And therefore I was creepy.
Now my loyal fans already love me, and that is awesome. Thank you everyone! But the problem with my name is not who is in my channel, but rather who is not in my channel. The idea of losing out on potential viewers and supporters of my stream because of a bad first impression based on my name is not something I am interested in. Therefore I changed my name to NolanTV to combat that.
Already the responses I have gotten have been overwhelmingly positive. I am glad so many followers are happy with the decision. I do understand that some people will be sad that the old name is gone and that others will be confused for some amount of time, but in the end I believe that this is the correct choice and that it will help the stream grow.
Thank you for all the support GOAT GANG,
I rant too much, and tonight I was kind of a dick. I have lots of work to do. Thanks for sticking with me through it all.
Right now I am on my way to Big Bear Mountain for the second time this week. I am beyond stoked. And not just because I get to go snowboarding, but because I am actually doing things and living my life.
For many years I honestly did not do much. I just stayed at home and played video games. Now these days weren’t a total waste or anything, one upside was that I never got into any trouble. But eventually I needed to get out and do something.
For a long time I wanted to go snowboarding but my Dad is much older so we never went skiing for family vacations as he was just too old for it and did not want to risk getting injured. He told me that when I got older I could go snowboarding as much as I wanted to, under the condition that my dad didn’t have to go with me.
Well now I’m doing you proud Dad! I’m going snowboarding for the second time this week and I am currently writing this blog in the car as my friend Ryan drives his wife Kacie, our friend Niki, and myself to Big Bear. When my Dad was younger he did all kinds of adventurous things. My dad owned a plane and would fly out to meet his friends, one of which was an expert downhill skier. He owned a boat and would take friends out to the lake. He would play golf and play tennis regularly, and would also attend sports games regularly. My dad lived a very fun life and I intend to do so as well.
As far as we can tell you only get one life. Get out and go live it.
