Threw in some Ripple Field 1 for good measure. This remix was requested by Midnight3795 (I wrote up a sappy description underneath with my experiences making this tune. ISSA SAPP.)
Midnight helped me further acknowledge that there is greater importance to what I do here on YouTube than I think. The joy some gain from media like this could be all they claim to have. Mainly for those who struggle emotionally. Just another reason for me to step up the quality of my content, huh? Recently I’ve been more and more aquatinted with the value behind these games. I started to realize that if some only want to gain joy from this life, there isn’t really anything more important.
And that’s what this media is supposed to do. It is supposed to inspire joy.
When I first started YouTube, it was about me. I just wanted to have somewhere people would like me. I suppose I was attempting to glorify myself. This is still something I struggle with, so bear with me…. but... As I continue, I start to do videos on the most obscure content, knowing that not many will see, but there’s such a big impact left on those who do. Oddly, this is when I finally started trying harder, and I stopped thinking about myself as much.
I’ve wanted those who did see the videos to know that they’re interests are shared, and that they have every reason to try harder even if they don’t get much attention. Growing up, (Something I’m still in the process of doing) I never really had the interests my friends did. My taste in media was always a long shot for them. It never amounted to anything extreme, but it was frustrating, and it’s basically a feeling I hope to further diminish in other people by making content based on extremely obscure games.
Though, Kirby’s not that obscure, but this could potentially be the most important video I’ve done yet. Why is that? We will all find our bigger reasons for doing what we do. I feel like the reason I found is not what I thought it would be. I often joke about the extreme mood changes of Kirby games, swinging from terrifying to cute, but it’s oddly the embodiment of the ways many of us feel throughout our days.
My mental status, as well as the ones of many others, have just consisted of a collection of extremes. This has lead to a huge fear of my own action. I constantly worry about what I might screw up. I ain’t looking for pity, take note of that. While I can’t speak for other people, it mainly amounts to social mishaps, which are the cause of most depression. What comes from there is fear of the unknown. We are afraid of what is out there, or whether or not we can handle it, or other people.
These disorienting mood swings can also put us in situations where we want to make a decision. Could be a wrong decision. We just can’t tell because we’re in the heat of the moment. Another thing that kills me personally is when I’m whining about something, and then people think I’m looking for sympathy. I just want acknowledgement. If someone is struggling with depression, I think pity is a lame route to take to cheer them up.
While I’ve never experienced anything extreme, my main request from me to you is this. A blunt one. Don’t hurt yourself. I mean that in every way, metaphorically, and literally. Don’t beat yourself up over what happens. And even if all else fails, even if you can't handle yourself, I still say you don't have to worry about that boiled strawberry jam. (That's a bit of an inside joke)
And thus, my conversation with Midnight led me to write this on her requested video. I requested that she make a request, though. I think it still counts. This is why it is perhaps my most important video, or at least my most meaningful video. Mainly shows my gratitude.
Quirky thing to put in a Kirby video, but why not?
Also, I've noticed I have been getting a bit more in the way of reception recently. Especially on the Kirby vids. Thanks a lot, you guys.
