    Hi there everybody! I'm Twixx, a 18 year old from southern Finland.

    I'm one of those people who tries to think outside of the box, even though it not always works. My head pops out ideas like crazy, but I never have the self discipline or the time to execute all of those ideas. I'm kinda lazy sometimes, so to speak :) (Not a good feature, trust me..)

    This journey is made mostly because I need something to keep me motivated to work harder and push me towards my goals. I have no idea where this journey is going to take me, but I'm definitely sure that I'll succeed with IM. I have never been this confident or eager to do something before in my whole life.

    - So far in my IM career, I've ranked 1 mns to #1 for its main keywords. That was huge for me, even though my adsense was banned at the same time. But no worries, I monetized it with clickbank, and it gets about 5 hops / day. It's not much, but w / e, it's not my main income anyways :) Other than that, I've made some money by freelancing. (Making banners / logos, written some articles) just to get some start up money. I also got a offline job, (Cleaning stairwells for a local company) that is making me about €120 / month. (4 hour / week). Not much, but a lot more than other newbies that doesn't want a offline job because it's too much work..I've been doing that for 3 years now, and I'm pretty fed up with it. That's why I have to make more that €120 / months online now, since I don't want to see those stairs one more time.. -.-'

    - I'm finishing school in February, and when other people have their 9-5 jobs, I would want to just sit at home on the days, and hang out with friends on the evenings. Just like everybody else, only that I don't have to stress with anything. I don't like stress. I'm a so called "Chiller" ^



    So, what am I going to do?

    The first thing I'll need to do is to get out my $50 bucks from Cleanfiles. (Won a banner contest @ their forum, so I made $25 into my account, yeeee :) )
    I've left my account half way done, and currently I've got $38,72. These monies will be reinvested in upcoming projects that I'll tell you about later. (hehe)

    So, how am I going to do that?

    I have a YouTube vid that is making me about $1 a day. That's horrible slow, so the first thing that I'll do is ordering some views to it. The vid that's ranked #1 in my niche only got about 5k views, so I will definitely rank above him. Also, I will do some social bookmarks and stuff like that in hope of ranking the video.

    What have I done today?


    Important stuff

    - I've been gathering points on YLH. (Sold some YT Likes @ DP. (You can sell anything there, btw^^))

    - Added some Vagex / YLH credits to my video. Planning to buy views in a bit though. Most likely from Big Buddy, since I've heard so much good about that service <3 (Non homo)

    - Written an article for my MNS, which I'm btw is going to try to sell @ DP for some more money.

    - Added something to my life-work: http://fruitslicer.net <3​

    Less important stuff

    - Been animating a little bit to get my daily dose of creativeness.

    - Trying to figure out how my new "Office" is going to look when I get my sisters room tomorrow, since she's going off to another city. (Pics tomorrow)

    - Found some GREAT music. (Nothing to do with IM though...)

    - Been arguing with the staff @ Hostgator

    - Thinking about buying a mini refrigerator to my new room (To hold all my Pepsi Max cold <3)​

    - Checking out everybodies offices in the "Show your office" thread. Great for inspiration!

    - Been setting up a notifier for my email account, so I don't have to keep refreshing it all the time (;

    - Been celebrating that I got my drumming exam! Grade: 4/5, not bad I think! :)



    Conclusion

    So yeah, as you can see, my "Less important stuff" list is a bit longer than my "Important stuff" list. This is one of the things that has to change during the next 2 months. I'm not going to just sit home doing nothing like others, I'm going to make my parents proud and all that. F yeah. But here's todays stats:

    - Cleanfiles:@ $1.63

    - YT Likes selling: $6

    - All:
    $7.63​


    -----------------


    Oh, this post became really long. If you read the whole thing, I salute you. Now I'm soon off to bed. Have to wake up @ 7 tomorrrow. School. Damn. But when I come home, I'm gonna start this and my papal will become full with monkies. Believe me!

    Also, if you have any questions (Not that I think you can question me^ hehee), feel free to PM!

    Thank you dear MachineLord. <3 (Non Homo as always)

    Yeah, well it's a short term plan. I'm not going to make this Journey some (excuse me) lame YT + PPD journey. I'm going after bigger goals after that :)

    Thank you Davids355. <3 Well, I wouldn't count my design skills as skills though... :)

    Not sure if really interested or trying to increase post count, but anyway thanks! :)

    ------------------------------

    Okay, so this is what happened Today:

    - Woke up at 7 for the first time in 2 weeks and went to school

    - 1 hour later I was finished with school, so I went to a café with a friend. Bought a coffee = - $1.20

    - Went to clean those (excuse me) F*ckiN stairwells for an hour. + $8.

    - Bought a pepsi max = - $3

    - Checked Cleanfiles = +$0.16​


    This is what's going to happen today:

    - Now I'm home. A friend will come over for a bit, but then I'm off to the computer!

    - Going to change "Office" today (I like to call my room that.^) to a smaller but warmer and cozier room. My room now is really cold because of some errors with the elements.

    - Going to buy some YouTube views today to rank my video.

    - I'm gonna check if there's anything other I could do. ​

    Stats so far 7/1

    - Cleanfiles: + $0.16

    - Offline work: + $8

    - Offline expenses: $4.20

    - Overall: + $4
