Music Videos of the Week!

My friends always comment how I find random, but amazing music videos.  So I have finally decided to post videos that I have found weekly.

To be fair, some of the videos are older, but I only just found them.  SO, here is what I found today! Enjoy!

My 23andMe Results

You probably have seen it by now, but a lot of people are doing the DNA testing by 23andMe. Even though I had wanted to do it for a long time, I never got around to actually doing it. So when I was given the 23andMe kit for Christmas, I was really excited!

If you are unfamiliar with the process, after signing up on their website you are sent a small kit that looks like this: 


Inside the box is this plastic tube that you spit (yes, spit) into and then seal back in the box and mail back to 23andMe. Then after a few weeks, mine took less than a month during the busy holiday season, they send a few reports.

These reports include where geographically your ancestry is from and also some health information about what your genetics may presuppose you to.  Below is my report for where my ancestry is from and what the report looks like!


I was actually shocked at the above report, I knew that a lot of my ancestry had come from Europe, I was just shocked that 99.6% had come from Europe!

The other funny thing in the above report was that I was more Neanderthal than 62% of other customers.  In middle school I was always laughed at for looking like a neanderthal (I thought I looked adorable), but I guess it was true!

Beyond just the ancestry report, they give you some genetic health risk assessments.  My report, as you can see below, came back very positive.  The only "risk" that came back was a slight increased risk of "late-onset alzheimer's disease." 


The last report I got was a "wellness report."  This report told me exactly what I was expecting...  That I am addicted to caffeine and that I am a very light sleeper! So now I can officially blame my Mountain Dew addiction on my genetics!


If you have not given 23andMe a shot, I really recommend it, just even for entertainment value.  If you are interested, here is a LINK that will give you $30 off the kit!

Getting into Cryptocurrency (like Bitcoin)

You may have seen a lot of news over the years about Bitcoin. Bitcoin is the most well-known cryptocurrency, or digital currency out there. 

Cryptocurrency is a decentralized currency, which means its not controlled by any centralized banking system.  Instead, it is verified using what is called a block chain. 

I've been in digital currency for a while now and its been having some incredible gains over the past year. A lot of people have asked how to get started in the digital currency world and I always point them to Coinbase


Coinbase is the most well known digital currency wallet and is incredibly easy to use. You can use this link and create a profile. From there, you can deposit money, accept money from others, or send money to others. 

Coinbase links up to Paypal as well, so you can easily move the money back to paper currency. 

You can also see the market rates of all the 3 major currencies: Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ether. As you can see below, Bitcoin has made tremendous gains month to month.  Just in the past 30 days it has jumped over 35%!


While past performance is no indication that it will keep going up. I'm choosing to continue to bet on cryptocurrency.  If you want to start and get into the game, use this link to Coinbase, and you will get $10 free of Bitcoin if you invest $100. 

UPDATED: How I Am Making Money ($450+) Using Ibotta

I'm one of those people that are hesitant about using an "app" to make money, but I have to give major props to Ibotta, because I have made some good money on it.  It does not require giving up any personal information (like a credit card, etc).  But I am seriously making some good cash on this app, I am up over $450 dollars and I have just started using it. 


So here's how it works.  You download the app and you make money two ways:

1) You launch another application from Ibotta, such as Uber,,  Uber and is primarily how I have made a lot of my money from the app.  I simply launch Uber from Ibotta and I get $1.00 back for every ride I take.  Other applications such as, you can get as much as 5% back, I have seen it as high as 10% at some times. 

2) Check out the application and there will be "coupons" on the site.  Something like, "if you buy green bell peppers, you get $1 back."  There are TONS of "coupons" on the site.  One of my favorite is to check out the application when I am at a bar and see if there are any drink specials (which there normally are). Then once you purchase, you just simply scan your receipts from popular stores! 

It's an app I highly recommend and you can see some of the deals below. 

If you use this link it will also give you $10 for giving it a shot.  And usually there is a $20 bonus you can get if you start using the app immediately.
