Youtube Partnership - AwesomenessTV Network | UPDATE
How to Deal with Ratchet People.
Guess Who’s Back? ;)
Hey everyone! It’s been forever since my last post… but I have some freaking good news for you all.To give an update first. my radio gig has been so great thus far. I started my college radio show and I love everything about it. The freedom on the radio is awesome and I love what I do!
Now to the good news… A popular network called “AwesomenessTV Network” has partnered up with me on youtube to make videos! I now have the fancy cool banner that I always envied from the “professional” youtubers, and now I’m one! I am starting a complete new chapter in my book and I think it is beyond belief. The radio is one thing but now I am interactive in front of a camera. It’s pretty cool and nerve wrecking at the same time.
Anywhooo, I have TWO channels I’ve been put in. One is my main channel, JohnSoRawks and the other is HowToDealTV! I am sooo pumped up to continue this journey. I would like to expand my viewing and subscribing rate, so if you guys want to subscribe and watch some of my vids and share it with your friends, that will be pretty sweet. However, I would like to thank all of YOU who are watching, liking, and subscribing to my videos.. and also the listeners who listen to both my radio shows. I am blessed and am not taking any of this for granted.
Thanks for reading! :)
Do You Hate Me??? :(
I am sorry I have not updated you guys for like two weeks or so. I have been way too busy with everything. Right now I have some free time, so I thought I should update you guys while I have the chance. For starters, my radio show”Just John and the Bright Side” will air Tuesdays from 4pm to 6pm on KUR starting next Tuesday. If you are not in the area you can just listen live online on http://kur.kutztown.edu. Another thing is that I already started my second semester at KU! I don’t know if I already shared that with you or not.. But yeah.. Lol and also I’ve been working with youtube and I started a new channel called “How to Deal.” Basically I give tips on various of topics in a comedic way. You can find the link to that on http://youtube.com/HowToDealTV and like and subscribe!
I am doing so much right now but I’m loving it. I cannot wait to show everyone my finishing touches on everything I have been working so hard on! I hope you don’t hate me for not being up to date but I’ll trying to get a blog or to in every week. Thanks for reading, keep being awesome (;
Veggie Goodness ;)
Here are some awesome veggie meals I’ve been eating!
This is called “Veggie Soup.” Actually I don’t know what it’s called but let’s just call it veggie soup. Anyway, you make it like regular soup but instead of meat, you add lots of vegetables including, but not limited to: carrots, broccoli, spinach, corn, onions, peppers, and any other vegetable you might want. You don’t want too much past though.
This next one is called spaghetti and veggies. Again, I just made this name up! Lol. this meal is a bit sweeter than the first one. You want more pasta in this meal. Instead of meatballs, you can add strawberries, lettuce, corn, tomatoes, peas, etc. This is a very fun meal to make… and eat! It is best to ea it when it is cold. There is nothing more disturbing than warm fruits. -_-
And this last one is bean salad. The beans is the main course, so you want a lot of that. You want to add a good amount of pasta. Not as much as the previous meal but just enough to get on in every bite. This is better served cold and you can also add all the veggie and fruits you want! To top it off, coat it with a raspberry dressing or any fruity dressing. Stay away from french, ranch, italian and those other main dressings. It’s packed with sugar and will make the meal soggy.
The theme for all these meals is just making pasta and adding fruits and vegetables to it. I love being a vegetarian. I feel very healthy. Going back to college as a vegetarian will definitely encourage me to eat more healthier on campus. I usually eat bacon wraps, cheese steaks, taco salads, and burgers all the time. As a vegetarian, I can avoid all that and actually stick to healthy stuff! Hope you liked the meals and will try them out! :)
I’m a Bad Person
I haven’t been posting in this blog as much as I intended. I have been so busy with my radio show that I did not have time to actually sit at my lap top and just type my thoughts away. When I did have the time, I would watch movies and shows on netflix instead because I was to lazy to type. I feel so bad not keeping up with the blog! However, I am back! There’s just so much to catch you up on. First, I am finally partnered with youtube!! Starting this year I will be on four different channels that is partnered with youtube. One channel will be a sketch channel, another will be my vlog channel, the third will be my miscellaneous channel, and the last one will be a video channel for my radio show. I am also starting up my college radio show in like two to three weeks. I also go back to college this upcoming Sunday. So there is a lot of stuff on my plate. Well have to get back to work,
Talk to ya tomorrow!
Wait a Second….. This is my life.
I know I kept writing my blog about how I did not want to talk about my radio show and promotional stuff. But lately I have been getting a lot off good things and opportunities handed to me through my radio show. So why not write about it in my blog. after all, this is my life. I enjoy hosting my show and bringing others closer to music. I also love the past guests that have been on my show. It is unbelievable for me to comprehend the fact I book so many great musicians and youtube stars on my show. It is even more inspiring getting feedback from my listeners. I had over 20,000 people tune into my show yesterday. That is INSANE!!! I cannot even imagine being in front of 20,000 people. I have musicians emailing me their cds and EPs for free just for me to here it. It is so overwhelming but a great experience. I am loving what I do and I have no shame in that. I am not writing to brag, I am just writing out of appreciation. This blog is meant for me to share what is on my mind and heart and this is it. I am just so thankful for everyone who has been listening to the show and posting it on their websites and stuff. It’s kind of awkward knowing that many people are listening to my voice on air, hahaa. If you are one of my listeners, I thank you so much for helping to make my dream come into a reality! (:
I didn’t want to use my blog page to promote anything. Nut in my previous entries I mentioned a hot mess moment I had with the musician, Denny White. Well today I finally interviewed and it was awesome! He is so down to earth and his music is just epic. He gave me a his first single off his new EP. I premiered it on my show. It was incredible! This is the most listens I have ever had! Denny White is definitely you should keep an eye out for. His all the songs off his EP, Colors, was produced by OneRepublic’s Brent. It was definitely a privilege having him on my show. You can say that we’re friend now! Hahaa! If you want to check out his newly released single “Colors” click on this link. It’s GREAT! Colors by Denny White
OneRepublic, My Favorite Band
If you do not already know, I am in love with this band named OneRepublic. Some of their greatest hits include, Apologize, Stop and stare, All the Right Moves, Secrets, and Good Life. This band is so epic. I don’t understand why they aren’t big. The lead singer, Ryan Tedder is so talented. He wrote some of the biggest hits including Halo by Beyonce and Bleeding Love by Leonna Lewis. He also produced the very popular album, 21, by Adele. They have a new album coming out. Their first single out was Feel Again. Now they have a new single called If I Lose Myself and it is such a feel good song. It just puts me in a good mood. I have a great feeling about this album. Check this song out! I love I will never recommend a song I dod not think people will like. This is a guarantee hit. And if it isn’t, well it’s a good song anyways. I love OneRepublic and their music. They almost make it seem effortless to put out such great music.
I went to the mall today with my family. Today must have been “Sexy Beanie Day” because all I saw in these stores were awesome beanies. Every time I saw a new one, my heart will start beating fat, my palms got sweaty and I couldn’t speak right. I was in love. If I could buy every single one I would! But of course that did not happen. Instead I left with just one, but it is already my new favorite! I got this one from the store, Hot Topic. If you can see the picture right, it is an all black beanie with cuts scattered all over them. They kind of look like pockets that only quarters will fit in to. I LOVE MY NEW BEANIE!!! I hope you guys love it too! :D
The Hot Mess Life
I didn’t want to write about my radio show on any of my blog entries but this story is such a hot mess that I had to share it with you guys. So, today I scheduled an interview on my show with this singer. My show started at 12:30 noon and we booth confirmed that. So today comes and I am doing my show. I notice that no one is on the callers list. So I am trying to stall as much as I can. Mind you, my online radio show only lasts thirty minutes on air. So I emailed the musician and asked him what was wrong. He said “I read your tweet and I noticed we lived in different time zones.” …. I knew he lived in LA but I forgot all about the time zone difference. I’m all the way in Philadelphia, and all of my guests prior to him were in the same time zone as me so I never ran into that problem. then I asked him to reschedule for Monday. He didn’t reply back so I sent another message saying “I can just postpone my show to 3:30 so that it would be 12:30 in LA.” Restarted my show today at 3:30. And the exact same problem happened. I tried to stall as much as I can. Then I emailed asking him why he didn’t call and then he said he thought time I gave him was for Monday not today. So I stopped my show AGAIN. Thank God my show is an online show, so it doesn’t matter when I start or end my show. Lol I am not upset about it I just find it hilarious. This was honestly a big hot mess story and I wanted to share it with you guys! Let’s see how my show goes on Monday!
I’M A PESCATARIAN?
So I have been saying that I am a vegetarian and all of that blah blah blah. So I have been researching some things about stuff I do eat and it turns out I am NOT a vegetarian! I am something called a pescatarian or also know as pesco-vegetarian. Basically what that is is a person who doesn’t eat meat…. except for fish. Apparently there has been several debates whether or not fish is considered a meat, but honestly that is too much information to get into. Lol. Some people get heated off of certain topics that should rationally discussed. I don’t really care what the term is called, but all I know is that I do not eat any animals besides fish. This blog post isn’t meant to be controversial or anything. I was just doing some research and found the topic kind of interesting. I do eventually want to not eat animals all together but as I broke college student I don’t have access to protein replacements. The easiest and cheapest way to go is to at least have fish. Maybe in the future I can slowly transition into at non meat eater. But everything takes time! (:
So this blog entry is just showing my style. As you can obviously see, I am huge fan of long sleeved collared shirts. When I want to look nice for a special occasion or something, you would most likely see me in one of these. I like to wear sneakers that match at least one of the colors on my shirt. with that I wear straight legs. My mom and step dad gave me an intervention on my jeans being too tight! LOL so now me jeans aren’t as snug, but they still look great! To top off my whole look, I put on a beanie. If, for any reason, I cannot find my beanie I will settle for snap back at. Or of it is a special holiday, like Christmas, I’ll wear a Santa Claus hat (: You will almost never see me without something on my head unless I am in the house or my dorm room. I almost refused to take one of the pictures above because I couldn’t find my beanie because I lost it while I was dancing, hahahahaa. But yeah this is as fancy as I will get… Unless I’m going to a ball, wedding, or something of that sort.
If you know me, you will know that I am obsessed with beanies! There is something about beanies that make me so happy. I probably sound like a lunatics but it is so true. Over the past years I have been getting really into my style and how I dress. I’ve been slowly developing my own style as I got more into it. Most people describe it as “hipster,” but I really don’t like using that term. However, if that is the term my style looks like I guess you can call it that. This beanie you see now was a gift my sister gave me for Christmas. I also received a new phone for Christmas… I loved the phone but let me tell you.. I fell IN LOVE with that beanie. It was originally a skelly but I managed to cut a whole and remove the flab. Now it’s a beanie! I was just glancing at it a few moments ago and decided to blog about it. Hope you enjoyed! (:
