Holy Cow I’m 21! | Week 51
“You only have one life so live it without any regrets.” – Bryce Ward 4/24/2021
I really can’t believe that I am 21. Yet here I am after living my life for 21 years. I have been very fortunate with how my life has played out, and I am grateful for all of it. I went through the Boy Scouts of America and earned the rank of Eagle, which is the highest rank a scout can earn before turning 18. I was a child actor cast in a movie and worked on tv as a spring ware model. For some reason, I kept getting type casted in shows that involved a rabbit. I went through high school alongside my peers and even did two years of Running Start to attend college. I took the initiative to start my first business in the yard care industry and saw that I needed to be mentored if I wanted to scale my own business.
I joined Praxis and became a member of the Stupid Raisins team for over a year now. In Praxis, I learned how to write for myself and grew my love for storytelling. Now I am writing short stories every week for my first book. During my time with Praxis, I have created my YouTube/Twitch channel BryceIsTubing. I took up video editing, and from my yearly charity events, I have raised over $600 for causes helping my fellow man. Overall it’s been a very productive 21 years, if I do say so myself.
So What’s Next?
I still live with my parents, and next year I plan to purchase my first house, hopefully, a duplex. From there, I will continue towards my goal of making work optional for myself. Next year I will have my first book published, and I will be in an even stronger position finically to secure my future. Over the next five years, I will have secured two rental properties that produce their power. Next week’s post, I will explore the idea of selling electricity to the power grid and how that can result in your home paying you for living there.
Once I have my finical foundation secure, I’ll be able to spend more time exploring this world we all call home. Alongside that, I would love to be able to spend more time on hobbies. For example, learning how to paint, building mechanical Lego structures, and expanding the BryceIsTubing channel. Most importantly, though, I want to spend more time with my friends and loved ones. Who knows what the future holds for me. Lady Luck is a fickle friend, but she does favor the prepared.
Hey, thank you for reading this week’s post! What did you do for your 21 birthday? I’m getting ready to have a bonfire with my friends, but I would love to hear your stories down in the comments!
