The world came to a standstill, and a silent and paralyzing hush fell over everything. COVID had shut the world down, and with it, the dreams and aspirations of millions hung in the balance. Work was scarce, and the once vibrant landscape of opportunity was now a desolate wasteland. But through it all, Alonzo’s unwavering support and generosity kept me afloat, his love ensuring that my pockets were never empty. At home, my wife Brenna and my daughter Alenna were the beacons of hope, the light that guided me through the darkest of days. But even amidst the love and support, I could feel the grip of alcoholism tightening around me, the relentless vice fueled by too much idle time and an overwhelming sense of helplessness. I found myself descending further into the abyss, the tendrils of addiction wrapping around me like a suffocating embrace. Desperate for something to occupy my mind and keep the demons at bay, I began rummaging through the boxes of equipment at home, searching for some semblance of purpose in the tangled mess of cables and forgotten dreams. I spread out the contents before me, a graveyard of ambition, the discarded remnants of a life that now seemed so far away. Sitting in my worn-out computer chair, I stared at the box of equipment, each piece a reminder of the man I once was. The once-comfortable cushion now felt like a cold, unyielding slab beneath me, my body a mere shell of its former self. The dim lighting cast eerie shadows on the walls, giving the room an oppressive, claustrophobic atmosphere. It was as if the weight of my past failures and missed opportunities hung heavy in the air, suffocating me. As I sat there, drowning in my thoughts, my eyes drifted towards my iMac, where OBS Studio was open. Perhaps, I thought, it was time to shift my focus from the physical world of equipment to the limitless potential of the digital realm. With nothing left to lose and the desire to escape my current reality, I began to delve into the intricacies of the software. Hours turned into days as I immersed myself in OBS Studio, losing track of time and the chaos unfolding around me. The once intimidating interface now felt like a familiar friend, its buttons and sliders becoming extensions of my own creative impulses. As I navigated the platform, I discovered untapped depths to my own capabilities, each new discovery a glimmer of hope in the desolate void.
