Two Milestones in One Day: Induction to the Quarter Life Crisis Squad and One Month Celebration as a Steemian
Hi! My name is Carlo Angelo M. Niere and yesterday, March 1, 2018, is my 25th Birthday as well as my first full month as a Steemian
"How did you celebrate your Birthday?"
Here are some photos I took last night:
"How do you feel now that you are on your 25th year of existence?"
"Now let's go to your experience as a Steemian for one month, How was it?"
I have received support from many people since Day 1. Especially from @enjieneer. She has become one of my mentors here in steemit. My introductory post gathered attention and I was featured in steemph's post:
I was very lucky to be featured in that post as many people noticed my introduction. I have received many words of encouragement from newbies like me and from people who have stayed for so long in steemit. I have grown as a person and as a steemian because of all of the support of all those people who have encouraged and inspired me to do better. :)
Here are some of the welcoming words I received from my co-steemians on my introductory post.
"What did you gain in that first month?"
On the other hand, this is what I really gained in the past month:
Followers who admire my work. These people are one of the reasons I do what I do. I create awesome instant photos(well In my P.O.V, hehe) to share to my followers and for other co-steemians to discover. It's really an awesome feeling when people admire your work. Here are some of the feedback I have gotten for my work:
A place where I can share my talent in singing. It's been a while since I sang my heart out publicly. I have had Acute Laryngitis for the past year and I'm still on the process of healing my throat. Steemit gave me a stage in which I can perform in. I want to impart and share this talent I have to all of the people here in steemit. I recently joined a singing contest by @steemitachievers. I won the first stage but still has a Grand finale on the weekend. It was really a nice feeling when people was amazed by my voice. I know I'm not that great of a singer but I give every performance my 100 percent eveytime.
A friend in the likes of my co-steemians. I have become friends with many people I do not know personally. I just know them thru steemit but I feel that we have this certain connection that bind us together. It's really an awesome feeling to have friends from all over the world.
A challenge. A challenge to be better on what I do. A challenge to deliver more valuable content to the community. A challenge to become those people who I admire here in steemit. These tests are what keeps me going everytime. I want to be a better person and a better steemian for all of the people to love and look-up to. I know that dream is next to impossible but I'll do my best to achieve it.
"So what's next? Is there anything more you can offer to the Community?"
Here are some of my future plans for my content.
- I haven't shared my journey for a slimmer body but that's still a Work In Progress. I'll be sharing that at the end of the year. Hopefully everything goes as planned.
- My 100 days;100 Instant photos is yet to finish, so hope you guys follow that challenge.
- New format for my photography. I have recently bought a full on 35mm film Camera which is Olympus Pen EF. I have started shooting using this camera with the film I bought for it. Will be uploading pictures from that once I get all my films developed and scanned.
Olympus Pen EF
- I will be sharing some of my old film photography also here in steemit
- I'm planning to conduct contests for more Steemit Engagements between Steemians
- Many More....
"Any last words?"
I know there are new responsibilities for me as a newly inducted member of the Quarter Life Crisis Squad. I'm excited to see what the world has in store for me , so goodluck to me on that. As a Steemian, I know the learning process is a never-ending process. I hope to archive and finish all the challenges I have set forth for myself and I hope you guys who have read up to this point follow me through my journey. I will surely be following you also on your journey.
