Unexpected YouTube Success

YouTube Success

Wow, wow, wow. When I started my new YouTube channel just one week ago, I never in my wildest dreams imagined it would be seen 100,000 times, get over 7,000 subscribers and 300 comments, from just two videos. But here we are. “Wait. You started a new channel?“ Yes. Even though I had 9,000 subscribers on my main channel, I was only getting 100~200 views on my regular videos, probably […]

One of my AI-generated worksheets

It might surprise you that I didn’t write my previous blog post myself. Instead, I thought it would be interesting to get ChatGPT to write it for me.

A New Personal Best in the Slipped Discus

I’ve hurt my back many times, but this one was medal-worthy. Note: This is a story from Oct 22, 2020, which I posted on Medium instead of here. I’m correcting that mistake now. Have you ever completely forgotten your own limitations? Maybe you’ve drunk far more alcohol than your body can handle, or even jumped in a pool when you can’t swim.
