You you really know when you found something that you look and ever since I was little, I’ve been finding stuff I’ve been trying stuff. I’ve been abandoning stuff but every time I try something new I know that this category isn’t right for me and I should move on but when podcast came to mine I went all out and I came with my brother and I was like I wanna start a podcast so we went over to our iPad and just got out something with no mics no nothing no editing. We just had some music in the background and we just played. We just talked and we just had fun with it and I think I truly enjoyed that moment and felt good to try and try something new. I try to go all out on it and so I found all these podcasts and at least YouTube and all the YouTube videos were OK but the podcasts were especially good cause I would listen to them when I go to bed and I just think of them and I got this podcast. I think I listen to one video and I got a and I think that this podcast truly should be five stars and it’s just such a good way to learn and expand your mind.
