So here I am today doing absolutely nothing…so let’s talk about nothing. Sounds like a Seinfeld episode, haha. No, really I just wanted to shoot the breeze with you for a few minutes and talk about whatever. In this video I talk about my collab video I did with Willow Wisteria ASMR. I’m soooo excited about how it all turned out and how it’s doing well on both of our channels! If you haven’t checked out my other channel, please do so, that is, if you love ASMR, gaming, roleplays, or all of the above. Another thing I talk about in the video is my new wheelchair coming. I STILL need to call them and find out what is going on with it taking so long, but I’ve been super busy with all of my video projects so I haven’t really had much time to do it. Speaking of video projects, another thing that I will talk about in this video is a couple of upcoming projects on my vlogging channel here. One of them will be another BTS video of a music video I will be in for a friend of mine. Anyway, so yeah basically I have boring days just like everyone else, but I’m gonna vlog that too because it’s transparent and honest. I want you all to know that I’m just like everyone else and have regular days where I basically do nothing and talk about nothing much too. If you liked this video please thumbs it up and share it, thank you.
I’m getting incredibly tired of the crappy snow fall that’s been hitting Utah this winter. It’s March and actual spring is right around the corner. It snowed this week and it’s already March so this shouldn’t be happening, at least not a lot. Luckily the snow storm didn’t do much, and we usually get one freak snow storm here in March, but whatever, I’m sick and tired of it. So yes, in this video I’m ranting about the crappy snow and why it isn’t spring yet. Maybe I’m getting a little impatient here though, and maybe I can wait just a couple more weeks for spring to actually get here, but it’s just been a really rough winter here in Utah so I went ahead and ranted about it. At least the worst is behind me as far as snow storms go (probably), but yeah, it’s pretty rough for people like me who are in wheelchairs. So I guess I’ll have to wait a bit longer for spring to come, and in the meantime I’ll just have to suck it up and deal with it. If the snow isn’t that bad in the winter here in Utah, then I’m usually not this impatient with it, but if it’s been one of those record years like it pretty much has this year for snow, well let’s just say that I’m gonna flip out about it and do a vlog on it kind of like this one, hahaha. Actually, to be honest, I’m feeling better about things because spring really is around the corner and I’m excited for it, that’s another read I’m asking if it’s spring yet. But it still sucks that it snowed this week. If you liked this video please thumbs it up and share it, thank you.
This is another very quick tutorial on how to roll through a snow bank in a wheelchair. It’s pretty simple, you just approach the snow bank in your wheelchair, do a wheelie, and plow right through it while riding the wheelie. I will warn that this should only be done by professionals at wheelies though because the snow banks many times are slippery due to ice and riding a wheelie through ice is very dangerous. During the winter, snow is the one of the biggest problems for people in wheelchairs. Many of us struggle to get by simply because we have snow blocking the way to a car, a grocery store, or outside in general. If you get stuck outside in a large snow bank and have no other options, this strategy will certainly do the job. Many of my wheelchair tutorials seem short and simple, and they are, but keep in mind there are those who are new to being in a wheelchair and they often times may need simple tutorials like these ones. I have another tutorial on how to get through the snow, but I wanted to do this one even though it’s similar because it shows specifically one of the strategies of getting past the snow (particularly snow banks on sidewalks). I hope someone in a wheelchair will find this tutorial helpful. If you liked this video please thumbs it up and share it, thank you.
First off, I didn’t mean to, well…hijack this video with mostly personal opinion of how hard creating content can be. In fact, I really love creating amazing or fun content for you guys, which is why I love Casey Neistat’s commercial about the subject. But sometimes what comes out comes out. If you haven’t seen Casey Neistat’s commercial, go watch it. I’ve got some YouTube friends who’s videos were also featured in the commercial which is really cool. In the commercial Casey talks about how content creators should be celebrated for doing what they do with little equipment and big ambitions. I personally loved what was said in the commercial and closely connect to it. So yes, I’m telling the Honest Truth about creating content, but I want to point out also that I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Many of you know that I started a second channel, and I’m putting a lot of energy and time into it. I’m still vlogging on this channel, but lately feel a bit burned out. This commercial has brought out the fire again in vlogging, which is really the point of what I’m trying to say in this video. And who better to know about vlogging than Casey Neistat?! Okay, maaaaybe Superwoman….and iJustine! If you liked this video please thumbs it up and share it, thank you.
Well, the latest issue is that my heater broke and I’m not very happy about it. So basically I live in an apartment that has a heater built in, but it’s one of those really old ones that uses gas, and then it broke. So I got a space heater and for a while it’s been absolutely great, but recently one of the buttons on it busted. Then just earlier today the whole thing was just shot. It’s late February here in Utah and actually it’s starting to get a little bit warmer here, but technically it’s still winter for another month. That means there’s going to be some cold nights still and there isn’t much I can do about that. But before you feel bad for me, you should know that I’ll be getting a new heater very soon. In the meantime my blanket is actually really warm and I have sweaters. I can turn on my stove and oven to warm up until I buy the new heater, I just can’t believe my current one broke. So here I am in the video basically just ranting about how my heater broke and how I’m not real happy about it, that’s basically the jest of it. Honestly I don’t know how I get myself into these situations, but I suppose everyone has these types of things happen to them and bad days. That’s okay, I’ll be able to get by now that winter is virtually over. If you liked this video please thumbs it up and share it, thank you.
Okay, so I only have one question….where’s my wheelchair?! It’s been a few months and I clearly need to get a hold of my insurance company and see what is taking so long for them to process things. I haven’t even gotten to the stage yet where I get myself measured by a wheelchair therapist or picked out my wheelchair yet, and even then it takes literally months to get it custom built and shipped. Well, I don’t know where my new wheelchair is, and I’m starting to get impatient about the whole thing. In this video I’m basically just talking about how it’s been months since I’ve sent in the papers to get my new wheelchair and just stressing about it. As many of you in wheelchairs already know, it can be a real pain in the butt to get through this entire process. And for all of you who are not in wheelchairs, let me just say….the process is a real pain in the butt! So I guess the big question is, when will my new chair come? And the honest answer to that is, I really don’t know. But I assure you, I will let you know as soon as I get it. In fact, it would really make a nice unboxing video, don’t you guys think? Well I think so. Maybe that’s what I will do when it finally arrives. In the mean time, I guess I’ll have to sit tight and wait for things, I just hope everything is okay.

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.
