How Am I Handling My Mental Health?

            Today I wanna focus on how I am dealing with it. Some days are are good where I am fully functioning and other days not so much such as Saturday into Sunday as I got devasting news with a former site admin has passed away on top of the other sad news as well, it's just overwhelming for me and we all mourn differently and one of the reasons why I sometimes am quiet. I'm not bottling it in, just the way I am dealing with all of this really. I know and I hear this from my team every single day that my mental health comes first and I know that but if I take time for myself then I fall behind schedule. I should take time at least an hour or two if I am feeling down and I did on the weekend. An unhappy Chris is a unmotivated person like I have been recently. Sometimes I just do not wanna take my medication for my Autism and that is no excuse to skip it because I am totally not myself.

            I need to stay on the medication or I will not be able to focus and get the job done. I know I have a website to go on or phone numbers to call but I just do not feel like talking to anyone about what's going on but might have to force myself to make the call or send the text out. I need to be focused to get things out at a timely fashion. Yes work is a priority and I enjoy Executive Producing and Hosting Podcasts but I have to remember I as a person comes first. It is not easy to stay positive and in the last year, been working hard to becoming a more positive person and be happier. Last week, Thursday afternoon I was happy because I was getting vaccinated and that put a smile so I am starting to smile but it's one thing and one day at a time. Anyways that is what I have to say and I promise to work on getting better and thank you from th bottom of my heart to those who have checked in on me. I will see you all in my next post tomorrow.

How Am I Post First Dose Vaccination?

                   Now that I am almost 2 days vaccinated with the Moderna Vaccine for this virus going around still, I have felt a few things.... First was the really sore arm, then feeling tired all together and that is partially my fault I fell asleep an hour and couldn't sleep anymore so I was up the entire night until 430 am EDT when I finally fell asleep up to 11 am this morning. That probably is one of the side effects of this vaccination as I have been warned about this well before getting vaccinated and even on the day of the nurse, she warned me there could be side effects and I thought nah that won't be me. Well I got a little too cocky on that as two of those symptoms hit me and normally I do not get symptoms that especially with the flu shot but this one is different really. However I feel great and soon as I ate something today I got my strength back and I think it had to do with the fact I didn't eat anything and I made a run to the corner store for something and mow the lawn and went to the lake to see freighters the Vectis Pride and Federal Bering ships that are in there so I just didn't care if I was tired and I know it's already catching up to me quite quickly. 

               I know the second dose will be a ton stronger and I am probably going to feel more affects of it but never know we will have to wait and see, I am quite a very strong person when it comes to getting needles and what not, especially getting flu shot which I haven't had since the year after I had the flu. Anyways I hope I do sleep a ton better tonight and more then I did last night and I have a feeling I am going to pass the heck out after supper and that's ok, just hope I stay sleeping right through till 3 or 4 am tomorrow and get back into a more steadier sleep and I believe the wanting to sleep a bunch and always tired has to do with the vaccine. It has hit me a little bit and if that's gonna be the setback for a few days, I will try to work as much as possible with taking breaks inbetween. That is todays post and I am sorry it's late but we had a mishap with post scheduling this morning. We will be back on time on tomorrow.

I'll Know The Plan For Big Brother Canada Finale By End of The Week!

               I know I do not usually do second posts on days that I am not suppose to be writing a post but I thought I'd do one anyways. This week will be a productive week with it being the 8th week in the Big Brother Canada game which means Finale is just around the corner for us. May 6th is the date as it is on the Wikipedia and yes I know you cannot really trust the regular Wikipedia half the time as anyone can actually edit it and put things on there that isn't even remotely true. This week, I do have to talk to two people, Jasmine, Senior Producer of The CBOTW Show/Co-Host of our Big Brother Canada & Big Brother US Recaps. The second person I have to talk to is our guest, Mr Larry Rieck who as you know is my Senior Producer & Co-Host of Power Rangers Podcast on another podcast within The CBOTW Show. So this week we will be having a small production meeting to our schedules for Finale. What I believe is Larry and I are at this current moment watching Finale together virtually due to the Backstreet Boys Reunion Tour.. LOL it's a running gag with our podcasts and now here on our website. So by the end of this week, we should know more of a timetable with Finale week and we should have it finalized for release next week for you guys. 

                All I need to know is if Larry's gonna do Finale and the Podcast with us and how the schedule will look for that week. Also discussion on the last 2 Monday and Wednesday Episodes if there is 1 or 2 of those that is still up in the air but sounds like we are indeed aiming for a Wednesday night recording which won't be as long but I am sure there will be a ton to cover between those two nights before the Finale on Thurs. May 6th, 2021. I just hope it is not going to be at 9 pm till 11 pm as that will be quite late to do it and hope its at least 8 - 10 pm EST or 7 - 9 pm EST as in the past it has been at 7 pm EST in the past like 2 years ago almost since we have had an actual Finale. I will be letting you all know by Tuesday of next week so a week tomorrow so be sure to be on the lookout for that and I will talk to you all tomorrow morning.

ChrisBOnTheWeb Weekly Updates [04-19-2021]

 Another week has begun which means it is time for another Weekly Update and I have a ton of updates to give you all. We have indeed been busy with getting more content out for you guys and adding stuff and updating the entire website to make sure it is up to date but here are the updates to the website:

Website: Friday morning during the night before Friday morning hit, I updated the Schedule Page with the schedule changes with Podcast content so to speak and we have added a Podcast to the list which I will get into below. Also we rearranged the Team Page and had to move someone around which again I will get down below. 

The CBOTW Show: Big Brother Canada is now in it's home stretch and Chris and Jasmine continue with 2 shows a week up to the end of Week # 9 of BBCAN9 then they head into Week # 10 with an Wednesday Podcast Recording session with it going up Thursday at some point of the day and Thursday night Episode recording session which could more then likely be live on Facebook depending if Larry is present and if they can stay live without an issue with it. Also Big Brother Australia is coming up fast and Boss Man Chris and Jasmine are working on getting Chris S ready for his debut episode with his Cast Assessment Podcast and scheduling for Big Brother Australia Recaps in the scheduling for the next 9 weeks which probably will still be up and running during the Big Brother US 23 airing. Also be on the lookout for the 3 year Anniversary Podcast with Larry, Boss Man Chris and Jasmine coming as they will be recording it on the Anniversary and more then likely live on our Facebook Fan Page. We are looking for hosts for The Amazing Race, The Amazing Race Canada, Survivor and The Simpsons Recaps on our Network so if interested to fill out the form here: https://forms.gle/6BF7fBQfsQAK17xZ6 

Sports Hour W/ Billy: Yes this is a name that is familiar with ChrisBOnTheWeb and we tried bringing this into production and after much debate where to place Billy on the team, Chris has greenlit this project once again and will be up on the platforms on Wednesdays @ 6 pm EST and this is the permanent time and day it will be going up for you. It will be Audio ONLY, will be found here on ChrisBOnTheWeb.com and other Audio ONLY Platforms the podcast is being distributed to. 

Power Rangers Podcast (Within The CBOTW Show): It has been a long debate for Executive Producer, Chris B, Larry and Senior Producer Jasmine to bringing this podcast back onto the Network and he has been hinting it returning and it so obviously the podcast that has been on Hiatus for almost 5 months now. Also the fact the 05.20.2021 date he posted in that cryptic message he posted it is so obvious that is what he is hinting is the return of that podcast finally. We will have to wait and see if that is what he has planned when he's ready to announce the return of the Podcast. 

                 Those are the updates I have for you guys today and I appreciate you all reading this post and the boss man will be back tomorrow and he has some great posts this week as he is going on almost one day since being vaccinated fully and I am sure he will be talking about it tomorrow but I will catch you all next week!

Chris Returns As Owner May 1st, 2021!

                     I wanted to let you know Chris has made the decision to return ChrisBOnTheWeb on Saturday, May 1st, 2021 which will be effective as of the time he wakes up in the morning. He will be back blogging as of Tuesday morning as always with some new posts but I am talking about the day to day operations he will be back May 1st. It has been by that time a month and a half since he has been a part of the day to day operations with me and all I can say I cannot wait to welcome him back with open arms. I suggested he does a live stream or something to celebrate his return and he is going to think about it but don't worry he will be still around the Social Medias between now and end of the month. I believe with him taking the extra time away will help him with his mental health and will help him heal as you know he recently has been mourning the loss of his cousin down in the U.S, Nikki Grahame passing away and Prince Phillip he's really having a tough time right now.

                  Back on Monday, he was suppose to be back but he approached me about taking more time off and I did not know anything till Tuesday evening and immediately wrote this announcement post that he is indeed RETURNING and I am sure he is excited and anticipating returning to the team fully and we will have a full team again not half the team. So it may be a few weeks to go but I am capable of returning and ever since taking over for him on March 10th of this year. It will be almost a full 2 months but not quite. Anyways that is the post for today, have a great weekend and I will be talking to you guys Monday and reminder Chris is back to blogs Tuesday morning.

What Is It Like Being An Site Admin For Chris?

                  Working for the Boss Man has been so much fun! Working on a day to day basis with his website besides my freelance job as a web designer is a ton of fun and something to do outside my regular day to day work and things been a little slow with that so been working with him on the website ideas. Now that I have the extra duties on the day to day while he's on a sabbatical as owner of ChrisBOnTheWeb, I have learned so much what his day to day activities are like. It's a ton of work but nothing that I can handle. I've had to make some tough decisions recently for example removal of our chatroom off ChrisBOnTheWeb.com and removal of the staff accounts that also are a part of it too. Now that it is done, I am on standby for anything else that needs to be done with the website wise. I do go to him if I am unsure of something and the other team members.

              Either way it has been an honor to be with this amazing team and I know he is blessed to have me and the rest of the team behind him 150% and put the hard work into the content that you guys see on a regular basis. Without us the Staff of his website, non of this could be made possible as we work on content everyday we are always coming up with new ideas for the website or content but either way, we continue on a daily basis to grow this thing and the view count proves it. Finally I wanna thank Chris for bringing me on as the New Site Admin and I am here to stay for a long haul. I also want to say thank you to you guys for welcoming me into this amazing community I feel very welcome to this community and I will speak to you guys tomorrow.

The CBOTW Show Is Now Permanently On Audio ONLY!

                 Chris has made it clear that he is done with YouTube. Him and Jasmine have admitted to the mistake to going back to Video. I know it's driven bunch of our followers away from our Twitter feed but we are correcting that issue right here, right now. We wanna do things right this time and any of the shows that are currently In Production and listed here on the website which is:

  • Survivor (Currently No Host, Looking for a Host)
  • Australian Survivor (Chris S)
  • Big Brother (Chris B & Jasmine) 
  • Big Brother Canada (Chris B & Jasmine) 
  • Big Brother Australia (Chris S)
  • Amazing Race (Currently No Host, Looking for a Host)
  • Amazing Race Canada (Currently No Host, Looking for a Host)
  • Power Rangers (Chris B & Larry)
             Any of these shows will be pre recorded and posted to the Audio ONLY Feeds and from here on out and I know those are only two of the shows he wants to cover at this moment. However he has mentioned these ones on the list and shows that are to be determined in the very nearby future:
  • Hudson and Rex
  • CSI Vegas
  • Full House
  • Fuller House
  • The Simpsons
            Which any of these shows are nothing to do with Reality TV Podcasts aspect of the podcast but he wants to expand his horizons beyond the Reality TV World too and really expand this network as much as he can.  That is today's post and I will see you all in the next one tomorrow.

The CBOTW Show Future Plans

           This is Day 2 of me taking over the blog for the week and today I wanna talk about the future plans for The CBOTW Show. The podcast is forever growing and we are always trying to add in shows that are not Reality TV related such as TV Shows. We have a few ideas such as The Simpsons as well. He has mentioned a few other shows to add to the list and we would have to cover  or find some hosts for that. I am sure there will be shows that are going to be live and some pre recorded or on Audio ONLY. What I gather Chris has a great idea what is to come on the Podcasts and what shows he would like to recap. He has been worried and concerned that this could be the last season of Big Brother Canada and Big Brother US this season and what he wants to do next. He's mentioned on focusing on Power Rangers Podcast for the time being and letting the other hosts take over the podcast while he figures out his next move to the next big project that he wants to do. He has on the list: The Simpsons, Hudson and Rex, CSI Vegas, etc. 

             There is other shows that can be covered and we will have to wait and see but this is just the start. In the past Chris has mentioned with the now former "Everything About Reality TV" Podcast there was two podcasts that went off the air and those are obviously Celebrity Big Brother US and Music City were the two shows that went off air and it will happen with The CBOTW Show at some point and Chris can said he's done Big Brother and Big Brother Canada since Season 4 BBCAN and 19 for the US. He should be proud of that either way and life goes on and there is other shows the hosts and him can do. This is today's post and I will speak to you all tomorrow!

ChrisBOnTheWeb Weekly Updates [04-12-2021]

               Another week of updates is upon us and we have a few updates to give you guys. I am not going to stall so here are the updates:

Website: As announced on social media, we have closed the chatroom down and it may take a few days to get everything down, staff accounts etc. Chat is in Broadcast Mode but we have removed the link off the website itself and the page has been put into draft mode once everything is down then. This frees up some space for some other amazing content. We are going to be changing the Podcasts & Interviews section of the Podcast and Archives will have it's own dedicated page again with all the shows or interviews that have been archived on the website.

The CBOTW Show: Chris has been concerned about the Future of Big Brother Canada and Big Brother US as he's started to feel like the end is near for both but hope at least one will stay for the foreseeable future (Big Brother Canada specifically) He's worried and unsure what will be next for him and this podcast. 

Chris Update: Finally I know he was suppose to be back as Owner of the Website and has decided to take some extra time as he's been dealing with a death in his family down in the U.S. and he's not himself as he's been getting upset at everything last week and I think he just needs some extra time off. Not sure how long as he has not stated when he will be back at this point. I will let you guys know when he's ready to return to the day to day operations of ChrisBOnTheWeb.com so in the meantime you have me in case you got questions. 

                Those are the updates I will be covering him on the blog this week to give him some extra time to mourn the loss of his cousin and we should of done that for the podcast too and I am sure Jasmine would agree but we know Chris can be a bit stubborn at times and we just have to listen. I gave him no ands, ifs or buts, I told him he's off from the blog this week no questions ask. He needs some time and deserves it regardless. Anyways I will be talking to you all on tomorrow's blog post.

I Am Back On Facebook!

                After being in the sin bin aka Facebook Jail for a month and the last 10 days of my team unable to make posts I am back on Facebook as of 415 am EDT this morning. I have done the following to update you guys on things:

1) I have made Chels an Admin of the Page incase I go back to Facebook Jail for another month along with I have made Jasmine and Editor of the page so there is at least two people that have control of the Fan Page incase I land back into FB Jail again and I hope not and I promise to behave this time around and play nice with people. 

2) Chels has access to any of the staff groups which I wanna address that as something has happened, we had someone wanting to join the group but those groups are private and used for staff and podcast hosts only.

3) We have updated the fan page to the best of our ability what has gone on since the 27th of March today.

4) I am planning a live stream later on on the FB Page around 3 pm EDT and cannot wait to chat with you guys for a bit and get caught up what has transpired on the website etc. 

                I promise you guys to behave myself or I will try to (LOL). What matters is I am back on Facebook and back in the saddle once again and happy to be back to a more new normal for myself and it is business  as usual, podcasts tomorrow and Saturday morning and Monday, I return as the Owner of the Website as you know I have been off for the past month almost and it is time to return things back to normal again. It is long overdue. To be honest I was planning to return June 1st that was my goal but I think with me back things will be even better. Not saying Chelsea didn't do a bad job, she did amazing keeping an eye on things and what not but I miss being the Owner and I am ready to come back officially. I hope to see you all on my stream on facebook.com/ChrisBOnTheWeb this afternoon at 3 pm EDT and I will talk to you all on here tomorrow.


Chris
