New Vlog! Pumpkin Picking!

I was finally able to go pumpkin picking again! It was beautiful and there were a ton of pumpkins. We tried our best to pick the best ones and ended up coming home with a really, big round one (which we carve in the video), and a not-so-big oval shaped one that I will carve soon!

It was a really nice break to stop all the chaos and take a trip up to the mountains. We even bought home some apple cider and I found out yesterday morning that I actually like sipping on cold apple cider when it isn’t seasoned (or rather overkilled) with cinnamon. Yuck.

I hope you guys are enjoying your fall and Halloween season! I’m on the search for other pumpkin carving ideas and a decent pumpkin pie!

Thank you for supporting me!

Community Announcements and Changes!

Alrighty! I have attempted to write this about 4 times now and have grown very cranky over the past two days because of it. Now I have to figure out how to use wordpress’s thingy all over again.

So with that being said I am going to list a few changes I am make or am planning to make to the community. I would love for you guys to answer the poll under each one and/or comment down below about what you think!

One of the bigger changes that I am opening up is a Patreon. I’ve been asked to make one ever seen I’ve started streaming but I’ve only started seriously considering it for the past several months. There are several reasons like not everyone trusts (or has even heard of) Gamewisp, some people would rather do Patreon than actually sub via Twitch because they get more than a sub button, and some people are just die-hard Patreon fans. So I figured what not give it a try? Here is the link to check it out! Give me your opinion! https://www.patreon.com/whazzupwasabi

Also I should note that a common thing for Patreons to add a $1 tier which I feel conflicted about. I used to have one for Gamewisp but the fees were too high to keep the $2 gamewisp tier. My take on the $1 tier is that if you can really only donate $1 you are probably not in the fincial situation to donate and that seems to prove itself all over twitch. I only want you guys subbing/donating if you guys are healthy, happy, and have a little extra. Not struggling to give me $1. BUT the counter to this arguement is some people only want to give me $1 and they deserve to be recognized? The only way they would be recognized is with the number of how many people are giving $1. So should I lose the $1 reward/tier on Patreon?

 

 

Another change I am thinking about is changing up the stream currency! I’m thinking about changing Wasabians to Wasabi Tubes and Polar Bears to Sushi! So that way you guys can give me tubes of wasabi to redeem rewards and instead of killing off your bears in polar bear wars, you can raid a sushi restaurant for more sushi! You give me sushi and I give you a song request. It all makes sense to me and it can lead to sushi emotes in the future! Possibly… No one really like the name Wasabians anyways and it was made on the fly.

 

 

Some of you guys have been asking for a Community website. A place where you guys can have everything related to our community in one place including announcements from not just me but also the community! I would need to know what you guys would like out of community website like a forum section and what not. I originially wanted Discord to be our community hub but they are taking forever to upgrade to more community friendly features but if we create a website and I decided to go through with my want to create a stream team, we would already have an awesome site to back up and support the team.

 

 

Updates and Other Announcements!

New Stream Schedule! I am switch to a bi-weekly streaming schedules vs a weekly schedule. This means my schedule restarts every two weeks vs one week. Here’s the schedule starting in October. In the first week I will be streaming Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday. In the second week I will be streaming Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Then the schedule restarts again! If you are confused I will be posting it on both twitter, my channel posts, and in discord!

Monday Nights will either be Fallout Nights w/ Zen + Wasabi or Anime Night for Subs and Patreons. Zen has been wanted to do this for awhile now for me to actually announce it so I’d figured we give it a try. If you guys have any questions for him or both of us, we will be there!

Speaking of Zen, I might as well give you a family update while I am at it. Zen is alright and going back to work finally (that means I can get back to streaming lol) but he has his moments where his body says F U and tries to kill him. This has cause my mental and emotionally sanity to mirror something like a bouncy ball in the hands of a four year old. Thankfully there is a supposed to be a point where this HOLY SHIT IF WE HADN’T OF CAUGHT THIS, YOU’D BE IN THE ICU is normal…ized? Yup, I don’t know either but Tink is ok! I think we need to get another cat eventually. Give Tink someone to harass her and give her someone to bully. I’m hoping for another furbaby this christmas. *crosses fingers*

So yea. I’ve stopped going to the doctor for the time being and things should go back to normal soon. I’m sorry it’s taken this long and thank you guys for being so patient. You guys know who you are and I am very grateful.

Thank you!

Fall Tag 2015

Check out my best friend Nicole’s new blog post! All about fall favorites ❤

As Always Nicole

Fall_Wallpaper

Hey guys! Lately Fall Tags have been going around and I’ve been wanting to do a lifestyle post for quite a while so I decided what better topic to do than a Fall relate post. I am tagging everyone that reads this post. You can post your link below of your Fall tag and I would love to read it but I’m also tagging specific people below.

Anyways! Enjoy!

Favorite Candle – This honor goes to Bath & Body’s Marshamallow Fireside candle. I discovered this late last year around the holidays and burned through about 4 of them in the 3-wick sizes before I even made it to spring. Sadly, I only had that many. I love this scent because it’s subtle, sweet and warm which is exactly how I feel fall and winter candles is supposed to smell like.

Favorite Lip Color – Anything bold, dark, and red fits…

The Harms of Buying Skincare with Microbeads

I’ve owned, tried, and used products with micro-beads in them but I never thought of it as being harmful. To be completely honest I had no idea they were plastics and that they weren’t recyclable. I have only thought of it as something to help exfoliate but after watching this is completely makes sense.

This is just another form of dumping plastics into our oceans and continuing to pollute our oceans.

The point of me sharing this is not to promote Lush, but to point out a huge problem that not everyone is aware of.  I hoping that if anyone of you are using anything with micro-beads in it that this post will help you to reconsider and choose an option that doesn’t have micro-beads in it.

If you are still curious, I encourage you to look it up, and I’ll even leave some links to get you started.

The T-Shirts Have Finally Launched!

homepagefeaturead

I am sooo excited to announce that the t-shirts have finally launched! I can’t wait to see what you guys think of them! I have worked so hard to get to this point. I’m sorry we couldn’t launch exactly at 7 am EST this morning. We were experiencing technical difficulties.

We picked four charities based off of the surveys that everyone had kindly filled out. American Red Cross, World Vision, Habitat for Humanity, and Hunger Project. I will be posting some more information about the charities soon.

We will be running these campaigns off of Teespring for 2 weeks. It only prints once a certain amount of t-shirts are sold. So instead of charging you right away, it will put a hold on your account until a set amount of t-shirts has been ordered. We set ours to 5 t-shirts for each campaign. If the goal isn’t met the t-shirts will not be printed, the hold on your account disappears, and you won’t be charged.

Thank you so much for your time and effort! It has made elated to work on this project and I hope that it will be able to help many people.

Thank you for making me smile!

Coffee. Tea. Talk. What Were Those Surveys About?

So all in all it has been a very busy month for me so far. I had my birthday, went out, and ate some amazing sushi and pizza! I also went shopping and enjoyed myself a little bit. The coolest thing about this month is that I have been working on this project and I will finally be able to launch it tomorrow! 

I will be launching four separate t-shirts tomorrow and 50% of all the profits will be going towards the charity that is picked out for each t-shirt. The charities I have picked out from the survey that you have all kindly participated in are American Red Cross, World Vision, Habitat for Humanity, and the Hunger Project.

Why am I running a t-shirt campaign? Because I am very blessed and I see that, but I also see that not everyone else is. I want to help in anyway that I can even if it only helps one person smile. It will be worth it.

Why only 50% of the profits? To be honest, I want to start an emergency fund and start putting a dent into my medical debt. You should also probably know that I have to put aside most of what I keep for tax purposes. Who knows maybe if it’s successful it could even help me fund my blog, but I doubt that will be an option any time soon. The aim of the campaign is still to help others. 

I have been focusing primarily on this project and as soon as it launches it will be much easier for me to get back to more appropriate posting schedule. So I am excited to say that I will be back to posting very soon!  I will be up all night on my computer working on the finishing touches for the launch so feel free to message me and ask me any questions! I will get back to you as soon as I see the notification in the top right corner.

Also before I end this post I just wanted to say thank you for everyone who participated in the survey! I hope this post satisfies your curiosity and keeps you hungry!

Thank you for making me smile!

BTW I will be launching the campaign tomorrow morning at 7 am, New York time! I can’t wait to see what you think!

The Life-Sized, Singing Doll Melanie Martinez!

A few months ago I was browsing through YouTube late at night bored and I found this amazing song that sounds like Barbie tell gone mad… and it was amazing.

Not only do I love this song but I love the music video and the story that it plays out. No one is perfect but Melanie Martinez has made this song perfect.
A little bit on Melanie… she started her career on The Voice! She seduced 3 of the 4 judges with her soulful revision of the song Toxic by Britney Spears.
Even though she didn’t come out on top she made it to the top 6 and afterwards she signed a deal with Atlantic Records. Then came the birth of her first EP titled Dollhouse which included Dollhouse (Duh…) and Carousel. Psst! It was even featured on American Horror Story : Freak Show!
If you follow her on twitter @MelanieLBBH (LBBH = Little Body Big Heart… in case you are curious) then you will find out that she has been hinting on a second album to finally come this august called Cry Baby. (oh yea, she curses in this one. So be good, mature adults when watching please.)
I’m also throwing in some more songs that she has sung which may or may not be on her album Cry Baby (the answer changes with each search). Oh and make sure you at least watch her cover of Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes. Gives me chills.

*on a side note… does anyone know why my spacing isn’t working around my videos? I’ve looked at the code but I can’t figure it out. Is this one of those weird wordpress things?
I hope you found this entertaining and I hope it made you smile. I have some amazing followers and I just wanted to say…

Thank you for reading!
