Reality Show Pitch

Home Circus Life in a Day

OK this is going to sound crazy, but that’s kind of the point. I believe that you can do All The Things as long as you organize it. I try to learn things that are the most complicate and overwhelming so I can prove that anyone can learn anything: I’ve always led an interesting life-path, and when COVID-19 hit, it got even weirder! I discovered I loved learning through videos, and am obsessed with learning all the things about becoming a self-sustaining homestead. Since March 6th, my software architect boyfriend and I have been Shut-Ins; We leave the house as little as possible and try to bring as little as possible into the house. We’re crazy, but in the way that really smart, informed-people are crazy. This means pivoting all efforts online, and attempting to make videos all along the way. I’ve shot videos of mainly aerial instruction (because every platform says to niche down), but also of gardening, preserving, fertilizing, pest control, online marketing, social media, photoshop, premiere pro, contact tracing... Parker built a 15 foot aerial rig A-Frame off the hot tub pergola, we have another rig in the living room (where I teach live aerial zoom classes online), and also a pole in the living room. I decided to start my own online business selling Morse Code Malas on Shopify, but also earning affiliate marketing. I quickly learned that I could learn anything on YouTube...and that the thing I could learn most about on YouTube - was YouTube! While I was learning everything possible about gardening and even aquaponics, Parker built a climbing wall on the exterior garage going up to a rooftop hydroponic garden. I did an online course to get certified as a contact tracer - since Parker lives in nerd-world and knows about everything before everyone else, he told me about how contact tracing could help essentially ‘save the world’. But once I got my certification, I couldn’t find many places I got another idea that I don’t have time for. Create a nonprofit organization to connect contact tracers with health departments in need. And also do pod testing to conserve COVID-19 tests and test more broadly. So basically, we will never be bored. We still have small groups of friends over on occasion, but now that we’re planning to pop the top to our house, it’s going to be chaos! I have so much content recorded that I just don’t have time to edit. But if saving the world is mainly just about money...well, I guess I’ll have to learn that too. ;)
