YouTube. . . The Final Frontier. . .

Welp, I finally did it. After YEARS. . . even a DECADE of putting this off, I’ve launched a YouTube channel. I know, from what all of the internet experts say, that the “riches are in the niches” but I just don’t do well with narrowing down my interests and the same goes for my…
