So, here’s a funny story. My name is —–. I started playing Boom Beach with my brother when it came out in the US in March of 2014. Within a week, I was tired of the game and deleted it. However, my brother continued to play and he really liked it. At the time, I was playing clash of clans and I really enjoyed watching people like Chief Pat and Godson play Clash on YouTube. It was such a fun game and the community around it made it even better.
After a few months, my brother started watching boom beach videos on YouTube. They were all by this guy named “nickatnyte” and I thought they were kind of silly. He kept talking about this “Diamond to Max” series and I would hear him in his room watching these videos.
Well, since I was into Clash of Clans, I thought I would give you a watch, just to see what your channel was all about. I watched the diamond to max videos and I started to really enjoy them. I couldn’t figure out why…I didn’t even play the game anymore. Then, a video came out titled “Boom Beach Song Burn Burn Boom” and I couldn’t stop listening to it.
Around this time, I found out that you had connections with northern —–. Well, that happens to be where I live. So, I messaged you on facebook and asked if you wanted to meet up and talk about YouTube since I was also looking to get into video production. Amazingly, you messaged back and said that you were willing to meet up. However, details were never worked out so it didn’t happen.
Nevertheless, I found myself yet again intrigued by your channel. I watched most of your videos all throughout the next year which was my senior year in high school. I found it extremely hard to describe to anyone why I watched your videos so much…I was having a hard time figuring this out for myself.
It wasn’t until my freshman year in college that I finally figured it out. You see, I’ve been through a couple different YouTube channels and the channels that I watch regularly have been shifting all the time. Right now, you’ll find me on YouTube as —–, a channel I started with one of my colleagues. He and I have found a huge inspiration in filmmaker Casey Neistat who has motivated us to create our own content for the long run. Casey has opened my eyes to the world of film, technology, and morals in ways that no one else has done before.
Over the past few days, I have been listening to what you have been saying about Casey and the things you have taken away from his videos. This is when I realized why I enjoy watching you so much. It’s not about how good you are at Boom Beach or Clash of Clans, it’s about who you are as a person. You are an inspired individual who has taken your dream and turned it into a reality through hard work and dedication. You are someone who doesn’t settle for good enough, like a job at Apple or anywhere else. You are only satisfied when you are working for yourself, and that satisfaction is better than anything anyone else gets out of a salary. I was drawn to your passion as a creator just as the vision of becoming a creator myself was beginning to form.
Well, I may not play Boom Beach or even Clash of Clans anymore. But I’m going to continue to watch your videos. You have been an inspiration to me and I hope to meet you someday. Thank you for everything that you do.
