Well I did say I was coming back at some point, didn’t I?
For those who don’t know, I took a break from streaming for all of 2018 to focus on a few key factors of my life. My mental health, my amazing wife, and my education. I am happy to report that everything is on the up and up. My mental health is in check, my wife is pregnant with our daughter who should be arriving late march, and I am back in college with the University of Phoenix (all online, you know, because of living in MN and all that).
In 2018, I also had the pleasure of creating a podcast with my best friend, co-host, and producer Will. Of course it is all about competitive Halo and I think you should give it a listen. We just had our one year anniversary and we have big things planned for 2019. You can check it out here - HCS Pro Talk
After giving it a lot of thought and consideration, it is time to get back to one of the things that makes me the most happy in this world and that is streaming. Something I told myself and my wife is that if I do decide to come back, I would need to start from scratch. Therefore I am happy and proud to announce that I will be returning to streaming via Mixer, with a new overlay (yes, the webcam is back), new alerts (with the same sounds of course), and a reinvigorated JKFire.
As stated within my previous personal post, I loved streaming because of you. I loved hearing what you did during the day, the good and the bad. I wanted to provide a place where anyone could come in, be accepted no matter what, and just be able to get away from it all. I wanted to be able to provide a place where anyone could open up about themselves and not be judged. I loved the community and camaraderie. And to put it simply, I missed that. I missed you. Now it is time to get back to it with a fresh mindset.
Don’t worry, I haven’t changed. The real only thing that has is the service being streamed to. I had a great run on Twitch and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. We made Affiliate and got over 500 followers over the course of a couple years. Mixer signifies a new beginning for myself and this community.
So what about the schedule Josh? You haven’t really stuck with one of those in a while. You would be right, I have not. At this time, the schedule is TBD. A schedule is incoming but it will take a little more time to pin down what will work with everything else going on in the daily life. I will make that announcement when I am ready.
Alright, I am done here and I am ready to embrace 2019 with open arms.
Oh shit, I forgot to say when my first stream is. Turns out that is when this post goes live. See you on the stream!
