YouTube king Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg is finally taking his long-awaited break from daily uploads — but he’s not necessarily keen on this hiatus, as revealed in his video on the topic.

YouTube’s most-subscribed content creator unveiled his vacation plans in mid-December, marking a major turn from his usual schedule of daily videos.

Although he claimed he’d be taking a break in 2020, he didn’t say how long he’d be gone, nor exactly when he’d step away from the platform — but it seems that the time has finally come, according to his statement in a January 15 video.

PewDiePie announced he would be taking a short hiatus from daily uploads in December 2019.

In an upload titled, “It’s been real, but I’m out!” PewDiePie announced that he’s taking his long-awaited vacay, at last, even if he’s a bit wary of stepping back for a short while.

According to the Swede, his love for creating content nearly exceeds his need to relax, although he isn’t letting that temptation steer him away from his much-needed mental reset from constant work.

“The truth is, I don’t wanna go on break,” he admitted. “The truth is, I love making videos. I just feel like I need to do this. I need to do this, so one last LWIAY!”

He echoed this sentiment near the end of his final video, but revealed that 2019 had been so hectic for him that he needs to “cool down” from all the drama.

“One thing I really realized is like, I love making videos, and I love interacting with you guys,” he continued. “It’s really fun. But I think this year, there’s just been so much piling up that I’m like, ‘I should probably just cool down for a bit.’ And then, we’ll come back with 10,000 percent!”

PewDiePie is finally taking his long-awaited hiatus, and while he doesn’t know when he’ll return, he claimed he’ll come back at “10,000 percent” power.

While PewDiePie himself isn’t sure when he’ll return, he isn’t gone for good — in spite of media speculation to the contrary, which he denounced shortly after announcing his hiatus in December.

For now, fans will have to await his comeback in wake of one of his most successful (and tumultuous) years of his career, thus far.

Sykkuno reveals new plans after leaving OfflineTV house

Sykkuno opened up about leaving the OfflineTV house and revealed he plans to move back in with family, but will stick around the Los Angeles area.

Sykkuno has only been a confirmed member of the OfflineTV house since August, but he’s already exploded in popularity. He deserves all the credit, though, since his content and input in collaborated streams has been thoroughly enjoyable.

It’s been a blast having him on board. However, Sykkuno ultimately decided not to stick around, and in one of his latest streams, he shared some details on what he’s planning to do next.

Sykkuno has been streaming for a while, but he’s become immensely more popular in recent weeks.

“As most of you guys probably know, [I’m] moving soon,” he said. “So, I’m probably not going to be streaming for a couple of days after today obviously because there’s a lot of moving stuff going on.”

Initially, Sykkuno is planning to move back in with his family, but then he’d evaluate his options and decide what to do next. “I’m probably moving home for a bit, and then we’ll figure it out after that,” he said.

Sykkuno also said he would “probably” stay in Los Angeles in the long run but isn’t planning to buy a house. “That’s a little too expensive for me,” he said. “I don’t think that’s quite happening.”

Sykkuno has been streaming Among Us on Twitch along with other popular streamers.

He described the move as a “bit of a hassle” but seemed excited about the future. He’s also adamant about not wanting to live alone. “I don’t want to live alone… I feel like it’s tough,” he said.

This hilariously opened the door for one fan to try and make an ambitious deal. “Pay for my rent, and I’ll live with you,” wrote the fan.

Sykkuno pondered for a moment and then jokingly pitched a counter-offer. “If you pay for my rent, I’ll there too, I suppose,” he said, laughing. “Thank you for the offer.”

Sykkuno didn’t mention anything else beyond that. However, if his meteoric rise continues to grow, the opportunities will be endless.

It comes after other OfflineTV members Scarra and Toast said that the OffliveTV house could be disbanding shortly.

“We can’t have a house that each of us have wives, husbands, our kids, and our pets living in once place,” Toast said in a recent stream.

It seems like Sykkuno’s fans will have his back no matter what he decides though. They’ve become a large and dedicated community in their own right.
