    U GUYS ARE ALL SWEET AND I LOVE U also some people some how took from this video that I'm not going to college or pursuing fashion design but I 100% am still going to college and pursuing fashion design lol but since my TVclip channel is also a fashion-centric career and it is givin me that sweet sweet full time income I am gonna focus on this as well while it is good to me!!

      Pixielocks I just dropped out of college when I am so close to graduating too, I just couldn't do it anymore, even though my grades were okay. I know so many people who have degrees and weren't able to get the jobs they want, so they decided to go in the opposite direction. I mean I couldn't find happiness and lost the passion of why I wanted to be there in the first place. So I ended up dropping out, and felt so shitty with myself, but part of me is relieved it's all over. I find going outside, volunteering around the community, do crafts, help family out from time to time and just do something that I actually enjoy to do, than sit in a desk and focus on homework all day. I don't how to explain it, to be your own person and have enough to make it by, feels peaceful to me. My advice, don't give up on yourself, you do you Pixie!!! 💖💟

      Pixielocks also youtube is hard, and it's a job too! I think in some ways it is harder than working retail, coz while you don't have to deal with ppl irl, you can't just go home from it either. Don't feel bad for having a job you love doing, coz you also obviously work hard at it too!! 💖

    I’ll be real with you on this topic. Ever since I was a kid I used to watch TVclip a ton, my kind of dream was to be a TVclipr. I think it probably still is. I’ve literally been recording myself n talking to a camera since I was a wee little kid. Also, I was never an academically smart kid AT ALL. I struggled in English, ICT, Maths, etc just everything, I’m more of an artistic person. Like, I was shitty at English as a kid but then I had a GREAT teacher I am so so thankful for, and my grades suddenly shot up for English. I’m also fairly skilled at art, I get passes but I know I can do better..I just don’t have the time because art is seen as one of those “oh, you’re not important..you don’t actually get people jobs” kind of subject.

    this video inspires me to seriously consider getting into youtube, I've been afraid to actually post any videos but seeing you be so successful is just super inspiring, especially knowing you're also an introvert

    I'm both jealous and happy for Pixie. Whenever i see people near my age (i'm 21) being taken care or have the privilege of having a family or dont have to live in poverty... i get jealous. Right now i can't afford to eat but i work full time minimum wage and don't have family to help me. I'm happy she's doing well, i hope someday i can be that taken care of financially. Best of luck pixie, you deserve it and i love your channel.

    Also, I love your videos and think you're an amazing person, but please please PLEASE don't make light of racism by saying Pewdiepie's "been a disaster recently"
    He's always been racist and misogynistic, it doesn't matter how good someone is at editing, it's shattering to know you support someone like that.

    Too late to comment 🤣 but I just noticed this video and it motivated me to start my channel, I mean to start making videos, but I have no idea where and how to start 😌 I wanted to make videos for so many years but I was (and still) afraid, but well... I guess that I have to try and if it doesn't work it's OK, better try and fail than just think about what could be 😊

    Pixielocks, I am so glad I found your channel. I am going to Japan in September and I found your channel because I was searching for what it is like to be in Japan. I really admire your style, your introversion (and coping with the outside world), and your journey. Thank you for representing our LGBT fam and I am so happy you exist! Congrats on your success! Shout out to your mom for setting an amazing standard and encouraging you to do you! ( ◠‿◠ )

    I super love you but this video was giving me a bit of motion sickness. Is the camera on your bed? Cause It's moving with your movements. Or maybe super fancy camera that is trying to get you all in frame? Idk @pixielocks. Your videos are totally noticeably higher quality. Way to put in that WERK

    But wow, in canada minimum wage is 1900? No wonder the portuguese are always trying to emigrate there, I kid you not, that's literally more than 3x the Portuguese minimum wage. Wow.

I don't want to be a hermit (been there done that during highschool) but I'm really curious how bad it is. Is being shack wacky similar to being a hermit?

    I just wanted to say that this is BY FAR one of the most helpful TVclip videos out there for newbie content creators looking for answers. PLEASE do a video explaining more about how you get paid and your job making videos! I feel like so many youtubers out there are never candid about how much they make so I APPLAUD you for sharing so much with us! And also congrats on being able to do this full time!! I’m supporting you all the way!! 💕

    U make more money than I get from my Social Security Disability Income. I will attest to isolation making one crazy. People always deify others they want to actually be and you're such a good thing to emulate ,imitate, adore. I like few TVcliprs (lol I'm also bittrs cuz can't manage to do what you do and make money) and you're one of the good ones. The bare bones videos are good; dont spread yourself too thin. I get thin just watching u srsly. Secrets out! Watching people do stuff makes me exhausted and then I can do no-thing.

  • Cracked Tea Cup
    Cracked Tea Cup Year ago

    The editing sprinkles you've been adding in really makes your videos pop. It's hard to find a balance sometimes with that, but I like it most when it's dotted around more chatty videos, just to break it up a bit without literally chopping yourself up into a shorter bit. I think what it often comes down to is just re-watching yourself and trying to spot when and if there's a prolong lull in the video and that's the spot where something weird coming up on the screen or a mild sound effect to emphasize your point can make a huge difference.

    Also, I don't wanna try and sway you one way or the other (if you even see this comment) but girl, college isn't everything, I thought it was, but it isn't, it's headaches, and stress, and money. (US, college is veeeeery expensive!) Plus, you can always go to college later in life if you want to, you are never too old to go to college! (25, In college right now, but not entierly by choice, it's to get some certifications to get some raises at work.) If I were you, I would live in the now, and if you decide to go to college later, you can! But, if you want to go to college, then go for it!

  • amandaggogo
    amandaggogo Year ago

    Congrats! Also, Thank you for actually talking about the money a bit! I've been doing youtube for quite some time, not big by any means, but it is my goal to eventually be able to quit my day job and do this full time, it would do so many things for my anxiety. I know you didn't exactly say that you bring in about 1,600 a month just from youtube, but, honestly, that's more then I bring in with my full time job, well over minimum wage.
    I always get so happy when I randomly have that $100 in my account, unexpectedly from youtube. It rarely happens, because I just don't have the energy or money to focus on youtube a ton, but it does feel good to know that "hey, you earned that doing something that you actually enjoy!" So again, I'm super excited for you and your endeavors! I'm really happy that you are able to do what you love, and don't worry, you will find plenty to do to get out of the house!! (when I worked a job where I had a split shift, I found myself alone at the park nearly every day, and I was very very happy doing just that.) I can't wait to see what your channel has in store for the future!! :0D

    I was so sure that legally TVclip doesn't want anyone talking about how they are paid. I thought I remembered a TVclipr like Shane Dawson or someone that said he couldn't talk about it. so basically what I'm saying is ily and be careful because ily

      Shane's with a network! I'm not :) There's no rules about not disclosing income if you're just a TVclip partner! I can't disclose my Younow earnings but that's like a separate thing~~~ It depends on if you're with a network or just going solo with TVclip like I am

    It's good that you're still going to college. TVclip's been shitty to independent creators lately so you kinda gotta watch out for Google's BS. You'll probably be alright though, your content can't be considered inappropriate. In the case of college, you could probably take a business class or two while you're doing your major so that you can potentially expand your channel in the future. Of course these are all just some tips, so you just do you. Good luck, ma'am.

    I'm a new subscriber. I liked your style. I find it comforting and uplifting. It reminds me of my childhood, and though I tend to dress and surround myself with darker and more earthy colors, bright colorfulness is stimulating to see. You seem like a sweet person too. I kinda want my rainbow brite doll back. Haha. I wonder if she is in my parent's attic.
