AndDestiny originally started out as a YouTuber back in February of 2013, uploading content primarily around Minecraft under the channel name "Anderson Pich Vs. Minecraft, " or "APVSMC," for short. He continued uploading on this channel until August of 2014 to begin focusing more on his personal life outside of YouTube and Minecraft.
He began to branch out to a different variety of games until he stumbled upon Garry's Mod, a sandbox based game which had a variety of community made mini-games, much like Minecraft. Instantly, he was hooked and began playing it's community driven games. Most of his time was spent playing the mini-game, "Prop Hunt." It was during this time he retired his old name, "APVSMC," and began going under the pseudonym "DestinysPowerOfStupidity,"
He began to meet some new friends who he began to play with more and more often. It was fairly acknowledged that he thought to himself, "I should begin making YouTube videos again." and thus, on October of 2014, the creation of the DestinysPowerOfStupidity YouTube channel began. Instead of uploading in the normal "Let's Play," format like his previous channel, he wanted to step it up a notch and attempted to create edited content to expand his creative nature. While it did turn out a success, the amount of time and effort he put into the videos, cost him in the time he needed for his studies in school. He kept up with this charade until May of 2015, where he had to stop for piled up school work finally getting to him. While he did take a break from creating YouTube videos, it didn't spark a new interest that began to spark.
Before taking a hiatus on YouTube, in March of 2014 a friend of his that went by the name of "OMEGA392" introduced him into the world of Twitch.tv streaming. Destiny enjoyed watching streams from time to time, but Omega convinced him that he could show Destiny how to get started on Twitch and stream himself. Seizing the opportunity, Destiny got to work to change his focus from YouTube, to Twitch.tv. There was one caveat that he encountered with streaming, his internet didn't have the right speeds to sustain a high quality stream... His upload speed at the time was ONLY 0.75Mbps, which wasn't ideal for the streaming quality Twitch and Omega recommended. Feeling disgruntled, he put the idea of streaming on the back burner and attempted to shift his focus back onto YouTube.
While watching one of Omega's streams, a viewer and dear friend of Omega's named "Kimisaru" came into the light to attempt to help Destiny with his dilemma of not being able to stream. He introduced him to another friend of his by the name of "Divona" who helped Destiny by tweaking his settings to ensure that he could stream, regardless of quality. He helped Destiny out by arranging his settings in such a way that he could get the best optimal quality for his streams, while not blowing out his internet. To Destiny's astonishment, it actually worked! On April 7, 2015, he actually was streaming! Albeit streaming at only 25fps and 480p quality, it was still an enjoyable experience! Destiny continued to stream roughly every other day, streaming Gmod, Minecraft, and other occasional games here and there.
During the year of 2016, Destiny had to take numerous breaks from Twitch in order to once again, focus on school. While off streaming for the summer, his internet provider began to give him numerous griefs. Constant disconnections from the internet, router/modem constantly overheating, even strange speed drops when the microwave was in use? (Yeah, we didn't understand either) For this reason, his family decided to finally flip the switch and upgraded the internet as much as possible to future proof in case of problems. Destiny seized this opportunity and jumped back into streaming. Except this time, upping his quality from 480p, 25fps, to a whopping 720p, 60fps.
The rest leads us to where we are today, while Destiny doesn't stream much, he still has his interest and pursues it as a side hobby while focusing on his personal life. What about YouTube you ask? He's still on the fence on what to do in that aspect.
