Wheelchair Accessible Park And A Nice Day

Wheelchair accessible parks are actually not too hard to find, although to be fair I’ve been to an inaccessible park before. It’s also a really nice day outside, the sun is shining, it’s a bit warmer than normal, and there’s a slight cool breeze blowing. Days like this, especially after a really cruel, snowy, cloudy January, just make you want to go outside and enjoy the outdoors. In this video that’s exactly what I talk about. It’s been a really rough winter, in fact, one of the worst on recent record. For those of you in wheelchairs you know exactly how bad it can get because of the snow. It’s nearly impossible to use your wheelchair on snow laden sidewalks, or even ice for that matter. I know the struggles, believe me…I KNOW! Haha. Well, here in Utah January is the big snow month. It usually doesn’t snow much in December or February so I think we’re out of the woods already, which again, is the read I am enjoying a beautiful day outside in a wheelchair accessible park. For those of you who don’t know what it’s like being in a wheelchair, trust me, accessible anything goes a long way. And….I really hope this nice weather lasts, although it is going to snow later this week. It probably won’t be a big snow storm though.

Greatest Valentine’s Day Message EVER!

This miiiiight be the greatest Valentine’s Day message….EVER! But I’ll let you decide that. I actually had this idea come up last minute when I was shopping at my local supermarket, so I bought some flash cards while I was there on the spot and went out and made this video. I believe that everyone deserves to be loved, it’s not earned. And I also believe that everyone IS loved by someone. This is the super special Valentine’s Day message I want you all to get out of this video. It doesn’t matter who you are, you ARE loved by someone, whether you know it or not. I feel like Valentine’s day is so overrated, you buy crap for the one you love, they don’t even really appreciate it, then it’s all over. This message is out a few days early because honestly it doesn’t matter what day it is to be loved or to tell someone you love them. It really is an almost worthless day really, expectations and all. I say, if you really want to impress someone, show them you love them on a random day, unless they don’t like surprises in which case, don’t. I really hope I can brighten someone’s day and make them smile today and any day out of the year really, that is my goal for this video. Maybe there’s someone out there that needs it….I hope so.

An Inspiring Message To My Fans

I just wanted really quick to send an inspirational message to all my fans. I was in a great mood earlier and listening to some inspiring music and just had to let it all out. Many of you know that I rub shoulders with some pretty big YouTube stars, but what you don’t know is how difficult a road it’s been getting there. It takes hard work, sacrifice, and patience to make dreams really work. Many people think that just because I’m in a wheelchair I can’t amount to much, and I guess that’s why I work three times harder than most to prove them otherwise. But when it pays off it pays off well. Many people who consider themselves fans of the YouTube stars I sometimes hang out with or do interviews with would probably kill to be me, so I consider myself very blessed. What I want to accomplish with this video is to inspire you all to work hard for what you love because if I can do it, you can do it. It’s not always easy, but it’s doable when you are determined. That’s my inspiring message to my fans. If things are tough right now, just work on one thing at a time until things work out for the better. It’s worth it when you see the fruits of your labors, trust me, I would know. If you liked this video please thumbs it up and share it, thank you.

How To: Braking On An Older Model Wheelchair (tutorial)

Just another quick wheelchair tutorial on how to brake on an older model wheelchair. Before you say it’s too simple to be a tutorial, you need to understand that I cater to wheelchair bound people of all ability levels. Some people do not know how to brake in a wheelchair because they simply may be new to one or maybe have less brain functioning that requires this type of education. So in this How To tutorial I teach you the absolute basics of braking in a wheelchair. First the right side, then the left. It’s really very simple. Those who need this tutorial can go back and watch it over again as many times as needed so they can get it right. Keep in mind that some wheelchairs have the brake controls inverted where you pull inward to lock it. This is an older model wheelchair so the brakes are not inverted so it’s pretty simple. If you have an inverted brake wheelchair just apply the same methods in this tutorial only the opposite directions and that should do it. If you happen to have brakes that don’t work either way, then I don’t know what to tell you, this How To tutorial is for basic brakes. Brakes are important for making sure the wheelchair doesn’t roll away, especially with you in it. It would be dangerous if you had a wheelchair but didn’t know how to brake.

Huge Announcement: Second Channel!

I’m sooooo incredibly excited to share this huge announcement with you guys, I started a second channel!! Don’t worry, I will still be vlogging on this channel, but I wanted to start a new passion project. My second channel is an ASMR roleplay channel based off of video games such as The Legend Of Zelda currently and moving into Final Fantasy, Mario Bros, and other games. ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response and is that oh so good tingly feeling you get on your head and down your spine from triggers such as audio and visual stimulation. ASMR is also helpful in aiding sleep and stress reduction as many of the triggers used in the therapy are stress reducing and relaxing. I’ve been watching ASMR videos for over a year now almost every night because I sometimes get stressed and can’t sleep some nights, it’s difficult for me. I decided to add a gaming twist to it because honestly I love YouTube roleplays and I’ve had some pretty epic video game story lines stuck in my head for the last ten years or so. My second channel so far only has a few videos on it, but monthly I’ll be adding about three or so new videos so you’ll definitely want to stick around and watch for them to come!

My Wheelchair Got Trapped In A Snow Bank!

My wheelchair got trapped in the snow and I’m legit stuck! HEEEELP!! Yeah, it wasn’t great, but in this scenario I show you the danger and difficulty of being stuck in a snow bank. My wheelchair is pretty hefty, it’s one of those old hospital types until I get my new one. But even though it’s a tank, it can get stuck in snow pretty easily, and this bank is pretty huge, let me tell you! One easy way to get unstuck is to shift your weight around so as to loosen the snow or ice. This is easier done in heftier chairs. If you have one of those custom light wheelchairs, you will not have this advantage, however you will have the advantage of having descent traction on your wheels so you won’t get stuck as easily in the first place. You can watch my tutorial on how to get through the snow, or learn how to prepare for a snow storm in another one of my videos, I got you covered. But for the sake of the topics in this video, I specifically wanted to focus purely on just how to deal with getting stuck in a snow bank particularly seeing as how this is the single most difficult problems people in wheelchairs face in the winter time. If you find yourself in this situation, you now know how to get out of it other than calling for backup. If you liked this video please thumbs it up and share it, thank you.

Working With Freakin Rad and Kuma Films On A YouTube Video!

Today I got to work with Freakin Rad and Kuma Films and it was freakin’ rad! They needed a few extras on set today and I thought since I’ve done a lot of YouTube acting and I vlog that I would sign up…and I got a part! So basically I get there and my buddy Patrick Hayes calls me and says to go into Guru’s restaurant because they were filming behind there after they got the other shot done. So I’m in the restaurant waiting and after a while Patrick shows up and we go out back into the parking lot. There I found a food truck and some of the Freakin Rad film crew there. Then this extremely cute blonde girl shows up and it turns out that she was actually going to be acting with me. We talked for a minute and then all of a sudden there was a problem with the food truck….it wouldn’t start and they needed to move it into position! So all the guys started pushing it and finally got it where it needed to be. Shortly after Freakin Rad wanted Char (the cute blonde girl) and myself to go up to the food truck and start acting like we were a couple on a date ordering some food, so we did. The second scene involved robbers who run out of a building and head our way and that’s when Char and I run for our lives. Those were the only two scenes in the film that I had and Char was with me the whole time. I felt bad for not talking to her much on set, but I think we were both pretty cold and almost completely frozen on set so whatever. If you liked the video thumbs it up and share it, thank you.
