    From YouTuber to Writer

    If you cruise YouTube, you will come across a similarly named YouTube channel called LordShadrach. Before anyone says anything, yes that is me. However, one will begin to ask, "LordShadrach, why are you now writing as opposed to making new videos? You have like what, over 900 subscribers?!"

    How I Manage to Work 20 Hours a Day

    How I Manage to Work 20 Hours a Day

    My secret to working 20 hours a day for months on end is due to a combination of workaholism and metabolism, which combine together to allow me to do this, so I would not recommend anyone else to try it as not every person's body can handle the things I put usually mine through. My workaholic tendency allows me to continue to work long hours alone, the metabolism makes sure that I don't require much food or water for long periods of time, while passion towards work allows me to do this without any unhealthy stress. Even if the time spent working does not reach exactly 20 hours, it is still around 16 to 18 hours per day, double the normal working hours for most people.

    "If He Needed Someone, I Wanted to Be That Someone"

    "If He Needed Someone, I Wanted to Be That Someone"

    I saw something last week that impacted me deeply. I was at my local Starbucks, typing away on my laptop, totally in the zone, when suddenly, my eyes were pulled to this older gentlemen, sitting on his own, barely touching his coffee, swollen eyes and no ring on his finger. I don’t usually go up to people I don’t know, but I felt like I needed to approach him. But I was nervous. I didn’t want to be presumptuous. Maybe he was just waiting for someone, maybe he was perfectly fine. But maybe he wasn’t. This was the usual back and forth I would play in my mind in these situations, but I grew frustrated with my fear and insecurity. If he indeed needed someone, I wanted to be that someone.

    The Trap of Gig Culture

    The Trap of Gig Culture

    Like many millennials, I have, over the years, found myself underpaid, underemployed, and looking for ways to supplement my income. But because of my work schedule, it's hard to take on another part time job. So, naturally, I've turned to the internet. And on the internet? I found beermoney. Beermoney is a reddit thread where people who look for micro jobs, gigs, and passive income come together to discuss ways to supplement income, with little-to-no effort or time commitment. It includes market survey sites, academic research participation, ad income from watching videos, beta testing, secret shopping, and online and receipt cash back programs, among other things. Users post referral links, advice, and their earnings for the month to indicate which sites are useful, and which are scams.
