Hi Ally, thanks for taking the time to answer a few questions about 2MGoverCsquared! For viewers who aren’t already familiar with your content, what is your channel all about? Tell us a bit about yourself.
Hi, I am Ally. 2MGoverCsquared. That is 2 M G over C squared R=2(MassxGravityConstant)/c2 This is known as The Schwarzschild radius. This equation is used to calculate the Radius of a Non-Rotating Super Massive Black Hole. Science. People call me Gover for short. My YouTube channel is about Video Games. However it is a little different, rather than focusing on being the best at the game and showing off my incredible gaming skills – I focus on funny moments and humor that videogames can bring. It is all about having fun! If I can make you laugh – then my job is done.
How long have you been gaming for? Was transitioning your love of gaming into a YouTube channel difficult?
I have been gaming since I was a kid – it started out with the original Game Boy playing Tetris . Then Nintendo 64 playing Pokemon Stadium with my brothers and Super Smash Bros. I would watch my older brother AJ play all the Final Fantasy games on Play Station for hours (he wouldn’t let me play because it was his game). Then in college I used my financial aid money to get a PS3 to play games like Gundam Dynasty Warriors, Soul Calibur IV, Mortal Kombat IX, and Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Funny story; One day after Mid terms I sat down to play CoD and my roommate walked into my room and I told him jokingly “I am going to record my game play and upload it to YouTube” not knowing that a couple months later that is what I would actually be doing that. Transitioning my love for gaming into a YouTube channel wasn’t very difficult because I went into this with the mind set that I would be doing this as a hobby. No expectations to make money off of it let alone making a living off of it. So there was no pressure. Then people actually enjoyed my content and my channel grew quickly and I was excited because I really enjoy recording game play, editing footage, and applying my sense of humor to my channel.
What has been the biggest change in your life since becoming a YouTuber?
There is so much that has changed about my life since becoming a YouTuber. I think the biggest thing for me is being my own boss. I’ve worked in many places, from retail, to restaurants, to even candy shops, and I always had an issue with people telling me how things “should” be done. So the fact that I am 100% able to create my schedule & content on my terms is an amazing thing.
What’s your favorite game right now?
Counter Strike: Global Offensive. I’ve played a lot of FPS games but CS:GO is extremely competitive and addictive. I also enjoy going on murderous rampages in Grand Theft Auto V. We all have a little bit of psycho in us so it is nice to let it out in a video game. DayZ will always have a special place in my heart – this game is the only game that can get my heart racing as much as it does when you are fully geared and run into a 5 man squad and you have to make the decision to bail or just go for it. It is also a great game for role play interaction.
How often do you play when you aren’t recording or streaming?
Not too often anymore. I really enjoy ending my day with some Hearthstone in bed before I drift off to sleep. However now that my career is gaming I need to do things outside of gaming that gives me a healthy balance. It’s kind of funny because I spend a lot of time working, recording, editing, and emails, but I feel like I have more time to do other things that I love like reading, driving, snowboarding, spending time with family and friends. I am a very lucky girl and I am so thankful that this is the path that life has led me on.
What advice would you give gamers that are just starting out on YouTube?
Be yourself – don’t try to mimic other successful YouTubers because your originality will make you stand out. Stay dedicated – there will be discouraging moments however if you see those moments through and turn discouragement into drive you can not fail. Have fun – You you aren’t having fun while doing this, then don’t do it.
