Kevin Scrima here. I am proud to write my first blog post on this website. It’s been a while since I haven written one–been busy! There have been lots of changes in my life.
For those who don’t know, I recently graduated college with a Bachelor of Arts in Creative & Professional Writing and minors in Literature & Education. It felt great to be out of college–I hated that place. Then of course, the job search began. Applying to a bunch of places and hoping one would stick. I don’t want to be too specific, but when you’re fresh out of college looking for a job, you really need to have a strong foundation of hope and confidence in your abilities. I was getting to the point where I was about to accept anything, fight like hell to get the job, and call it a day. Like it says in Acing the Interview, by Tony B, no one really likes looking for a new job, because it’s a pain. But I got a nice writing position at a school, and I am extremely happy about that. I was getting really tired of cashiering–it becomes monotonous, tiresome, and boring.
I also got the WiFi on my Lenovo Y-50 — 70 laptop fixed–I had to send it in for repairs, much to my annoyance. I found that my habits are tied to my laptop, and that I even grew a bond with my laptop (it was expensive), so I missed it, and it’s finally back. The WiFi works so much better with an Ethernet cable, so I think the house needs an updated router, and possibly a Wifi Range Extender.
I miss making YouTube videos. I want to try making a series with a theme–I have the idea and scripts all written out, so all that’s left to do is put it into action. What am I so afraid of? I’m tired too, and am low on time (that was a funny way to talk about time). I am excited to try this series out, so I am determined to get the first episode out on an upcoming Monday–no other kinds of videos until I make that one.

I just don’t want my dreams to die… I think that’s what I am most afraid of. Letting life sweep me away, becoming busy in the hectic routine of things, and forget about my personal dreams, such as growing a YouTube following, writing stories and publishing them, and much, much more. I expect a lot from myself, and so have high expectations–so I will be very disappointed if I let that potential go to waste. All of the potential is there: I just gotta use it. But I may have to make some sacrifices, depending on what I will do. In any case, I remember reading an article stating that, for your dreams to come true, sacrifice is part of that journey.
A few days ago, I went to Sandcastle, my first time swimming all Summer! It’s just because I place so much value and importance on other things, but the break was nice. Sunburn on my one shoulder, but it’s not bad.
Anyway, I just wanted to give you all a quick update and write my official blog post. I used to post on two different blogs: http://kevinscrima.blogspot.com/ and https://kevinscrima.wordpress.com/ but now I will use kevinscrimauniverse.com
Have a great day, all!
