We all have that one fantasy, or something that we would really like to do. I know in my lifetime I want to see the Chicago Cubs actually win the World Series. This being said, this season looks to be the best chance they have, well until they started this series with the L.A. Dodgers. They have dropped their last two games, making it 2-1 and sadly putting them in the position to lose this series, since the next two games are in L.A. Now, let me clarify; I am not a Chicago Cubs fan, nor will I ever jump off my Royals. I am just excited to see history being made, which is what would happen if they did win the World Series. I went as far as promising something crazy if they do win.

I know I am in no position to negotiate with God, nor was that my intention. I just thought it was a good idea at the time. I recently posted to Facebook after the Cubs got shut out for the second straight game. The status said “I will finish my youth pastor studies if the Cubs win, because then we will know that God does exist.” I am being very serious. If the Cubs win, I will study the bible like never before, I will get some kind of certificate (somewhere in the future,) and I will become the thing most want me to become; a youth pastor.

Now, don’t expect me to do this all at once. Clearly I want to get back into studying and going to church and such. But it will eventually happen. I could be Jenkins (Jinx) it, but I thought this would get the Heavens to help the struggling Cubs, also I might as well finish the education I started.

The Chicago Cubs are on their way to get eliminated, and it’s all because of their batting. Their defense is what kept this team alive, thus far. But now without their batting abilities, we could see the cubs out in the next two games. Their hottest hitters (Rizzo, Russell, Heyward, Fowler and Zobrist) have only hit 12 out of their last 109 appearances (Playoffs). If it weren’t for Montero hitting the late grand slam, off the bench in game one, we could be looking at a 0-3 deficit. The Cubs have the pitching, disregarding Arietta’s horrible outing to win this, but something has to come back alive; their bats. They will need to find some hope in their bats and turn them back on. You can’t expect to not hit well and beat the L.A. Dodgers. The Cubs need to get their five big hitters back on track, or they might as well pack up and go home.

We will have to see what the future brings but I think we could still see history being made, this season. It’s not a big deficit, but they have to get back on their game. This is where we will see if the Cubs are the real deal. They have the talent, they just need to find a way to put it together and go after it. Cleveland will be waiting for the winner, lets hope it’s Chicago.

Top 5 T.V. shows I am watching, right now.

Ariel and I have been watching  a lot of tv, lately. This includes a few new shows that we will talk about today. I will list a few T.V. shows that I watch when I am bored, then I will also talk about my most favorite show that I am addicted to!

  5. Scream– This was a joke when we first started watching it. It was something that I was wanting to torture Ariel with, but instantly it became a hit. We still have a love/hate relationship with the show, but we are falling more in love with the show, daily.

  4. Beauty and the Beast– I am not a fan of these types of shows, nor will I ever be, but this show is something else. I find the suspense to be just right. I would hate to always have someone after me, which is what this guy has. I wouldn’t say I love the show, but it is a good time killer!

  3. Big Bang Theory- Season 9 was just released on DVD, and I was one of the first to buy it. Since I bought the set, I have only watched a few episodes. I don’t want to finish this season too fast, so  I will continue to the next. Just know that this show will always be my favorite!

  2. Z Nation– I just stumbled across this gem and I love it. It is like The Walking Dead meets Syfy. I thought I would hate this show, but if you go in not comparing to The Walking Dead, then you will be fine. I didn’t go in thinking about The Walking Dead, so I found a strange love for this show. Murphy is a funny smartass, Doc is funny as hell, Addy is sexy and 10k is just overall amazing. I cant wait to watch more!

  1. The Walking Dead– Season 6 left everyone pissed, expect for me. The season finale was a great way to end the finale. Others might disagree, but think about it; Even if you aren’t a huge fan, you want to know who Negan killed, ultimately gluing you to AMC’s hands. They own you! I don’t know about you, but I am ready to get this hype train back on track! GO NEGAN!

For one, I am so freaking sore!
I just got out of the shower, but I don’t feel any better. Actually, I feel worse! I don’t know what to say, I am one old fart that cant stay healthy. Who knew that going outside could do something so horrible, but it can….Remember that! Remember that outside is dangerous… Nothing serious happened, just a busy day, yesterday. My family and I went to a waterpark. Since I am a beast at my job, they gave me free tickets (Not serious, I had to work) so we were able to get in free! No one passes up a free day at a waterpark, other than aliens…they might. While at this water park, I involved myself in some crazy activities that led me to hurt, really bad.
The thing that hurts the most is my back, arms and legs. Let us talk about my back first. I think my back hurts from punting the other night. Things happened, the other night, and I spent a hour punting a football. Being the first time (in quite awhile) I should have stopped after a few minutes, but I didn’t. From kicking the football to my foot placement I must have pulled something. This isnt so bad, I usually have backaches (From scoliosis) but adding this to the other pains really blows!
From my back we must go up to my arms! My arms are small chopsticks that don’t get much action. I use to work out a lot, but I have gotten really lazy and have failed to workout in months. My arms aren’t as they use to be, which isnt good when you want to get active again. While at the waterpark, I was able to go to a driving range, also a pretty awesome batting cage. The golfing could have caused my back pain, also, but I don’t know. The golfing caused blisters on my palms and my shoulders to hurt. Being stupid, I went into the batting cage right after. The bats sucked, so when I hit the balls, the bat refused to work, causing a long vibrating through my arms! While hitting the balls, I felt my bicep being pulled, also. This is why my arms are so sore, but why my feet? Thanks for asking, babe!
Of course, my right foot hurts because of the punting, but the right foot has another reason to hurt. The reason for the other pain is from the water! There is an amazing ride at the waterpark that I rode a few times. This ride is like a big toilet bowl, mainly you go down a slide into a big bowl that spins you around, after spinning you fall into the water below! I really enjoy this ride, so much that I rode it the most. It was really fun, but I had an accident the first time going. The woman told me what to do, cross your feet and slide. I did that, but at the end my foot came out and caught a piece of the slide. During the impact I felt my leg being pulled back. I watched as my foot bent all the way back. There was a sharp pain in my hip followed by a long agonizing pain in my ankle. It felt like I ripped a muscle, but I didn’t, thankfully! I was able to walk away from the ride and continue the day, but it started hurting worse today!
I woke up with a huge pain in my ankle, a pain that I thought would keep me out of work, but I was able to get over the hill and go to work. The pain got worse through work. I got to come home after 10 hours, only to be struck with everything. All of my limbs became stiff and I was unable to do anything. My back caused me to slump over or else I couldn’t breathe. The rest of my body was stiff enough where I couldn’t move quickly. This is when I decided to take a shower. The shower did everything, but make it better! The hot water only caused my back to hurt more. I don’t know what I should do, but I am going to pop a few pills and go to bed.
I had a great time yesterday and I wouldn’t change it for the world. I passed my exam and I deserved to have fun, I just didn’t know it was going to lead to this. Though I am in pain,  I would go back and do it again. Everyone deserves to relax. That is why I am telling you this, don’t allow stress to overbear you. Instead, find something that you guys love to do and do it!

Fully made from butter!

   Today I was able to go to the fair, with Ariel, and actually spend some money. Being a tightwad, during the fair, is something that has always been a problem for me. I want to spend all my money, because there’s just too much amazing food to pass up. I also love to play games, but food is my number one priority!
      There’s one thing that I love, something that I will be making myself, but usually wait until the fair to get. This item is a cheese-on-a-stick. It’s literally just a crap load of cheese, fried to perfection in corndog batter. I was first introduced to this amazing item, a few years back, while at Power light (fair concert) and I have loved them since!

      I have waited every year to get one, patiently waiting to dig my teeth into creamy heaven! I got one this year and it was better than any other year!

      Luckily, I was able to get my cheese, because I tried something else, later. I needed to pee, so I went to the urinals. (I have a funny story about this trip. If it gets 10 likes, I will release that story.) After the urinals, I grabbed my wife so we could get a lemon shake-up.

       While the woman was shaking the drink, I asked her to make me a deep fried 3-musketeers. Since this was my favorite candy bar, I figured this was going to be the best thing ever, but it was horrible. It was far too sweet for my taste, as it caused my teeth to hurt, moments after eating it. I couldn’t finish it, and decided that it was time to stick to my cheese treat!

Also, I played a game with my wife and won something! I won my very own Pikachu!

It was a great day! I want to know, what is your favorite fair treat?

I have a feeling, one that is of my heart. One that says, no matter the struggle, I will stand tall. I will overcome anything that the demons have for me. I will do anything to become the person that I know I can be. I will be the one that God made me to be. I will make him proud. That attitude is starting today.
I have always had a negative tone to my voice. It is annoying tone, and one that I wish I could get rid of, but it seems like when something is going good, something stupid happens. I feel that if I have two good days, then that means that I will have three bad days. That is usually what happens, too, but it isnt because bad things happen, though. It is because I will dwell on the bad instead of the good. Little things become big deals to me, on those days. If someone flips me off, as an example, that will ruin my day, and put me in a bad mood. This is how my mind works, and has worked for years. But all this will change, starting today.
I cant be depressed, anymore. I have too much good going for me. I am at the top of where I can be at my job, and I make good money. I always have extra cash at the next paycheck. My bills are always fully paid off, and there is never a question if we will have the money to pay next month. We get to go out, and have fun. We have a warm house. My writing is starting to catch attention of some viewers. I have nothing to stress about, anymore.
I have to get out of this down-mood, or I will never further myself in life. I will have a bad day, and will cut everyone off. But the worse part is; when I get into a bad mood, my blog suffers horribly. I will be angry when I edit the post, and it causes me to think badly of perfectly great work, which in the end is gutted and posted anyways. Then when I simmer down, I look at the support, and wonder why I hated the blog so much in the first place.
But when I was sitting here, I began to think. I wondered why I was always in a bad mood. There was the pattern, listed above, and I knew I needed to change. That is when I began to change for the better. Every time something stupid happens now, I just remind myself of the amazing days that are coming up. This has tripled the amount of Good days I have, in a week. I seem to be happier, and my blog is enhancing due to it. I am proud that I am feeling this way. I know it is needed, and I hope that you guys can take my experience and make your attitude better, as well!
