Background Work Paycheck Details, Day 1 of YouTube TV Show, Upper East Side Properties, Stock Market Updates, & Paintings
I thought it would be interesting for some to see the details of a background workers check. So the check attached was for a TV show I recently worked on here in Manhattan and for 9 hours sitting on a plastic chair underground with no internet service surrounded by a hundred strangers in a very tight room where everyone needs to get up if one person has to get up after $53.09 removed the total earned is $156.52. I do not do background work anymore and am very grateful for the experiences as well as some of the acquaintances I’ve made. Also the check takes a few weeks to arrive.
Today is the first official day of working on my YouTube TV Show and I’ll start posting the details after the first episode launches which I hope to have that wrapped by Sunday if not sooner. My channel can be viewed here. One of my goals is to be able to name my channel. I love going live on YouTube but can only do it from my MacBook Air at this time due to the account being so new, just a few days really. The current requirements for being able to go live on YouTube with one’s iPhone is 1000 Subscribers & 4000 hours of real watch time. I’m guessing the real watch time means I can’t go on there and click play on my videos that are hours long and have the time build up. It’s gotta be real.
Speaking of real I’ve discovered something rather recently post-moving to the city. I’ve always known about being real vs being fake but sometimes there can be a slip and every time there’s been a slip I’ve always been punished by the universe in an enormous fashion. So lesson learned, be real and not everyone will like you but the universe sure will. By universe I mean higher power, one-self and one’s mindset, or whichever one chooses.
Love’s Looking Good Lady Antebellum. I bring them up because that’s what’s currently playing on my Alexa and it’s a really happy song which I always like to hear. I’ve also noticed that on Apple Music if you find a great playlist and want to add it to your library you can’t do that, at least I can’t. You have to add the songs to your playlist manually. I”m OK.
I’ve started checking out Upper East Side properties as that’s my long-term goal living here in the city. My favorite neighborhood is Lennox Hill and I love those properties close to Park Avenue.
The stock market looks great today for me. Today’s top movers are Twilio currently at $166.41 with a 52 Week Lo at $68.06 & a 52 week high at $170.00. 27 Analyst Ratings say 74% should buy 26% should hold and 0% sell. Twilio is focused on creating communication software that includes cloud platforms and services. It uses API’s Application Programming Interfaces that handle customer engagement. Headquartered in San Francisco the stock name is TWLO & went IPO in 2016.
I started doing 100 push ups & 100 dips every other day and they are done connected to another task such as after I hang up a call or right before I start one. For the way my brain works I can never ever do 100 push ups all in one sitting as I would cry of boredom unless there were a $10,000 check at the finish line every time.
Brooks & Dunn: Boots, Scoot, Boogie is playing on Alexa and that’s another happy song, country. Good to know. Just asked Alexa to play Brooks & Dunn for the first time in my life. We will see how this goes. OK so far so good.
I just shot with our camera man the intro to the YouTube TV Show and it looks good.
Neiman Marcus filed for bankruptcy but there’s a difference. Chapter 11 is doomsday tombstone. Chapter 13 is getting a handout from the government for a second chance. This is Chapter 13.More to come! -JoJo
Today as always it was quite an excellent day. I decided to start a YouTube TV show which I’m excited to launch starting tomorrow at least putting the first episode. It’ll be exciting to be coming up with the script and the creativity. This is truly what I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time. It all starts with baby steps. There’s no better place to start a YouTube TV show than New York City. I’ve learned to let go and remember that the key to a successful show is the content not how much time you spend thinking about it and perfecting it as there is no such thing as perfection. In fact it reminds me of perfection Eagles failure.

I got to paint today in my studio here in the city and I think it’s pretty cool. Are use the first layer as white and black which turned it into a gray base for the background with some interesting almost 3 dimensional looking features. Tomorrow I should be getting red and orange which I will carefully use on separate days and that also includes the remaining blues I have for the previous paintings.
I got to meet new people through Zoom today through a friend which is always great especially when they’re pretty cool people. I also purchased a few additional iPhone holsters for when I’m walking and running in the city for shooting more video for my YouTube TV show in future projects.
I just have to admit that Trader Joe’s is amazing especially here in the city has eight bottles of wine red wine which is my favorite comes out to be $27. Every day here in the city even during this outbreak I sense that my successes grow continuously and so do the opportunities and adventures. My father thought about attending NYU but that’s a whole Nother chapter. Until next timeMore to come! -JoJo
Always a beautiful day here in the city and I initiated my daily “Thank You” cards ritual in which every day I leave a stamped and ready to go stationary post card to thank someone in my life in my own words and writing. This reminds me I need to buy new stationary as that was my last card and I know exactly what to do. Regarding stationary, I’m all about spending the least as it’s the thought and action that counts far more at least for me at this time. My favorite and reasonably priced black and blue pens can be purchased by clicking here for the blue pens and here for the black pens. One may receive so many with these two purchases one can pass them out to people who need pens which is all the time or carry extra ones in your pockets for that “If I only had a pen” moment.
It’s nice to speak with a familiar voice from long ago which reminds me to give people I think about a call every so often to catch up. I only use official Apple AirPods and only purchase them directly from Apple’s official website here. I’ve noticed that many times purchasing Apple products elsewhere leads to a zero guarantee of problem-free experiences which is far different than fashion purchases.
There were a few first timer moves I made today which I’m proud of myself for. I sense that I’m starting to really get into the groove of something spectacular in New York and it’s all about these tiny baby steps which may have come from a recent book I read called: Tiny Habits which can be purchased here. I’ve noticed something neat about my brain and it’s that it’s only days, weeks, or even months after I’ve read something it truly starts to set in. It’s never the day of nor even the day after. I wonder if that’s called something technical?
I started watching the TV Show Cheers for the first time ever and I have to say I’m learning a whole new range of vocabulary from Shelley Long and the show can be watched here. Alright until next time:

3:10 PM the sun came out today for a split five minutes and it felt amazing as it was one of the first times ever this April to have real pure sun peak on the rooftop.
3:35 PM bought a new Hamilton Beach single serve Coffee maker that does not require coffee filters and I didn’t clean the last one for over a year and it turned out fine so I thought you know why instead of cleaning the old one I’ll just buy a new one. Very reasonably priced and it can be purchased here. i’ve noticed that when you pour in the first car it actually takes more water in them lights out which long-term could be an issue if you don’t dump it out. I wonder how it lasted so long with it without dumping it and still drinking it for over a year. Just goes to show that not everything has to be cleaned all the time. That or I got lucky.
3:40 PM While I’m waiting for my coffee it looks like Tamiflu joined me in the kitchen. I always thought that she acted like a robot and really does seem like a robot kitty. It’s all based on the way her eyes blink very slowly in the way her tail wags very slowly in the way she looks up very slowly and it’s all with 20° angle movements.
Well I’m still waiting for this coffee to make I’m also celebratory because the Apple Music service decided to start working today as opposed to yesterday with ALEXA. Looks like the office next-door has been partially remodeled and no longer has creepy graffiti on the inside of the windows that are boarded up. Looks like they also left a window open.
4:19 PM Load of laundry is done. Still have to put masks on which is Hey OK. I’m getting better at laundry and not waiting for my dirty clothes to be busting from the bathroom door which makes it easier to transport and makes me more efficient and clean.More to come! -JoJo
