    Nathaniel, I have never commented on a ITput video before, but I wanted to ask you - do you feel like you haven't been interested in "popularity" contests because you don't fit the "traditional" mold of what is popular? So your rejection of it is a "rejection" of the "rejecters"? Do you ever ponder that maybe you're pursuing a "popular" career, or a path that is focused on "popularity" because you finally found a way to make it your own, in your own space? And that in itself is a rejection of the "traditional"? I don't think it's a bad thing if you actually like the idea of being popular, or if you crave the attention. It would be great to see you embrace it even more, without doubting its meaning, and you can just live in it, freely. I don't think your content or being is harming others so I don't see you doing anything wrong with your popularity. Let's dismantle the traditional ideas of popularity and just exist without doubting or questioning.

    Stories like these give a hope ,when you yourself see such corruption happening in your society . It might not have happened to me but it happened to someone close to me . The person was murdered and his death was falsely claimed as Suicide by the police, due to rich people's influence. Feels like to run away from this environment ,filled with so much negativity and corruption. Seeing your videos and other such positive content , gives hope of the Beautiful world that is out there.

    Solo quiero agradecerte por el contenido que haces, me motiva a vivir mejor. Verdaderamente has logrado crear un espacio en esta plataforma que conforta a muchas personas, yo incluida. La verdad, así como dices, no importan los números, ya sea de visitas o suscripciones. Vengo a tu canal porque veo en tu vida cosas que también veo en la mía. Y escuchar lo que dices y lo que piensas me hace reflexionar y me proporciona una claridad respecto a mi propia vida. Por alguna razón te siento cercano, como alguien ya dijo en otro comentario, te percibo como un amigo que comparte sus pensamientos conmigo. Me parece que a los creadores de contenido como tu puede preocuparles mucho el nacimiento de nuevas ideas y el como llevarlas a cabo. Y, no se si esto proporcione algún alivio, pero quiero que sepas que yo solo espero que sigas siendo tú mismo. En este viaje de la vida me alegra el saber que podemos compartir nuestra vivencias y pensamientos con otras personas aunque cada quien recorra su propio camino.

    I'm 50 years old and I love this channel. In case some young folks don't know this, Life will take you in directions you never expected which is both good and bad. You devise your plans, you seek your niche, you create a life of your own, but it is sometimes in different forms than we imagine. Again, this is just a thing, it's not good or bad. In any case, my point is, I am here due to this reality about living Life-- We can always learn something new and find comfort and understanding when hearing about another's journey. If Nathan reads this comment (yeah, not likely, understood) you are a deep thinker as I was at your age, you are much smarter than I was, however. I enjoy listening to your ideas about living-- sometimes it reminds me of my own youth, and sometimes I gain a new insight. Often, I wish I had been as adventurous at your age, but my life was very different and that is simply a fact that could not have been changed without great fortune and luck at that time. P.S.: It's clear Nathan's parents, perhaps esp his mother, has played a large role in shaping him. My parents shaped me, too, but in very different and not-so-great ways. As you say, I am still the narrator. As the narrator of my own life's movie or book (or both), I have had wonderful and exciting chapters as well as sad and suffering chapters. I'm currently in a stage of reinvention (for the tenth time) and taking notes on who I want to be next and how I want to contribute to my community. This is an ongoing process in life and I welcome it with open arms, as I see Nathan doing here on his ITput channel as he learns and grows. He's a smart and compassionate person and I wish him all the luck in the world.

It is a relief to find someone who shares so much of the same curiosity and drive, as well as inspiring to see what you've created with it. I think the things you discuss are incredibly valuable and have the power to inspire change in people's minds and hearts and the way they perceive things happening around them. Whatever course this all takes you, I hope it fuels you to know that you have already made a change for the better. Many kudos and much love.

    I'm trying to be quadlingual and starting it is harder than actually doing it. I'm currently bilingual "English/Filipino(tagalog)" and I want to learn both Japanese and Spanish aswell but it's hard to learn Spanish since there are no shows available like anime that's great for japanese learners. For spanish I only have Cuco's music or my highschool language class (but american school always finds a way to make things boring). I really appreciate the Spanish subtitles, it won't make me learn spanish right away but it's a great start in my opinion :)

    Dude, i discovered your channel a couple months ago and I like a lot what you do. No matter how difficult it may see, no one has to fall in the trap that represents basing what one is or do in the opinion of others. No se si vas a ver este comentario o no, pero acá en Argentina la decadencia se dio y se mantiene por la hipocresía de los políticos y la estupidez colectiva de la sociedad, un claro ejemplo donde si se deja llevar por un discurso vacio y sin pensar el contenido se te va todo al carajo. Si eso puede pasar en un país imaginate lo que es en la actualidad con las personas y la presión de internet y las redes sociales. En la vida hay que evitar el gataflorismo (ask your parents what this is jajaja), hay que reconocer lo que hay y conocerse a uno mismo para saber cuáles son las pautas necesarias para tener una vida en sintonía con lo que uno mismo quiera o necesite. Saludos loco.

    "Who is subscribing ?" A 16 years old and ambitious person. I find immense comfort in seeing your personal journey, whatever it is about. I myself share this tendency with you of worrying too much about the right and perfect thing to do, and it is only at my wisest and most peaceful times that I come to the best conclusion possible: there is nothing that matters to me in this world, besides having faith in God (Allah), and living gratefully of everything that comes my way, as I know life isn't endless, therefore my worries are meaningless. Nathaniel, I would tell you to explore more your capacity of being open to the world and what it holds, and accepting things, as terrifying as they would be if you knew you would never die. Place your faith in the best places, I believe it is everyone's core, and one who doesn't place their faith in something bigger than this life, will undoubtfully place it in painful places. I would love to see you down the path of becoming as peaceful as you could get. I feel like this advice is as much for you as it is for me, because it is a valuable lesson I ought to share with someone I care about. I am very glad you have decided to create on this platform, however, I was surprised to realize you're one of the few people that I don't see any differently from someone close to me, and it is saying something knowing me. As long as your journey is still available, know that you have one girl who does want to follow it as it goes, not for the destination, for the journey.

Someone who're grateful for and inspired by your vulnerability and courage. In the end, it even contributed (so thank you!) to my motivation to create my own channel and share bits of what I have and am learning from this amazing journey called life!

I've seen several other ITput Creators do this. Not to take away from your video quality. It's amazing. This just might be a way to make your content more accessible and/or expand your audience.
