Welcome back! It has been so dang long and I do apologize for that. It has been the roughest year of my young life, and that has caused me to not want to write. But nonetheless, we are back in action. I won’t be posting nearly as much as I use to, but know that you will be getting a blog 4 out of 7 days. This is solely because posting 7 days a week is just too draining and I don’t want to find myself hating this again. Not that I could ever hate you, guys. Wink, wink! Also, with the change of the schedule, I will also be giving this blog some direction. This will help you guys know what is going on at all times and will finally give this blog a name. For most of this blogs existence, I have posted whatever comes to mind, which can be hard to pull in outsiders, since people only read what they think will affect them. In this “Revival” of “Impromtdude” We will be leaning more towards encouragement. Meaning 2 of the 4 post will be uplifting messages to help you guys get through the day, then the other 2 days will be reviews, promotions, writing prompts, thoughts, lessons, or anything else I can think of. I really feel that will bring life back into this keyboard, and will give you guys encouragement to face your demons. I have to say that I am glad to be back and I hope you enjoy the upcoming projects, as I am excited to share my thoughts and talents with you guys. Thank you for reading!

Don’t let toxic people ruin your shine.

When I was going up, I lived with my mom. At 7 years old, you are looking to your parents for the right and wrongs. You are over being that toddler that is running around the house, and you aren’t quite the man that is taking girls out. You are right in the middle. These are the times that you really need a strong backbone to know what is wrong and right and you need that person to push you in the right direction. She wasn’t this, though. She taught me, at such a young age, that hate is good and that you must judge everyone on their actions. Most of her lessons were, of course, about hating my dad, as she taught me that he wasn’t around because he was a bad father, not because she had a restraining order on him. She also taught me that it was okay to steal, lie and cheat. This led me to lying to people, cheating in class, and stealing (to the point of being banned from a gas station at 8 years old!) This went on for many years. When I grew up, I ended up being like her in many ways. I would blame others when I didn’t get my way, I lied to girls to get what I wanted, and I got in trouble for stealing; all things that she taught me because she was a toxic person.

This was all said to tell you that you don’t need or want toxic people in your life. They will tear you down and only will use you for their pleasure. They don’t care about you or how you feel; they only want what they can get. If you stop giving it to them, then they will leave you and treat you like they treat everyone else. You will become nobody in their eyes, because they won’t be able to use you as a puppet.

Toxic people come in many forms; boyfriends, girlfriends, best friends, bosses, coworkers, and most importantly family. Anyone in your life can be toxic. Toxic people just want everyone to be as miserable as they are. Boyfriends will use words to cut down their girlfriends (and vice versa,) usually telling the girl that she is ugly, fat or stupid. This is usually in attempt to make her feel so low about her own self that she would never think about leaving him. Your coworkers can be toxic by the way they talk to you or about others. Getting that promotion is their only goal, and they will do anything to get it, even putting you through the ringer. They also take time and gossip about your other workers, mainly to make themselves look better, which can make the workplace dangerous and full or drama, which was their goal all along. Drama is soul food for these people. But one type of toxic person, one that we didn’t think should be on this list, is your family. Family is supposed to be there in thick and thin. They are supposed to support your feelings, your dreams and also should see your side of the story. They should understand that you aren’t always going to like someone or agree with everyone. They should show you the love that you always gave them. This isn’t always the case, though. Some families are full of drama seeking  hateful judgers that want everyone to hear them, but never want to listen. Such as my mom, they want everyone to see their side and only their side. They will do everything in their power to convince others that you are wrong and that they are right. Most families will break apart because of the toxicity feelings.

What should we do about toxic people? CUT THEM OFF. Don’t let your boyfriend talk to you like he does, remove yourself from conversations will negative people, and if you need to, cut your family off. You have a life to live, so don’t let others bring you down. Life is too stressful to allow others to fill you will negative thoughts and feelings, so cut them off. You will never change their mind; you will never do them justice. Every word that you speak will go in one ear and out the other, so stop wasting your breath. Get a knife and cut the ties, because you will be happier that way! I saw a big change when I cut my mom off. She wanted to blame my dad for my bad childhood and wanted to tell me that it was his fault, but I knew the truth. The truth was that she was just hateful and wanted to avoid being the blame, so she pushed it on someone else. I thought that I could pull her up and show her that no one was to blame fully, but I saw quickly that she was pulling me into negativity, and if I didn’t release her hand then I would become the same type of person. It won’t work! You put yourself at risk anytime you try to pull these people out of their toxicity! But it is so easy to pull you down.

I have seen so many toxic people in my life, but that is also why I don’t talk to that many people. I don’t dance with snakes and I don’t drink with fools. Being around toxic people is as dangerous as dancing in the middle of a freeway, you will eventually be flattened! Don’t let that happen, though! Get up, cut those people off, and live your most positive life. It will be hard to cut these people off, especially at the family level, but you need to do it.  Stop letting them ruin your most happy days, take them back already!

Thank you for all your support. This is my first time writing a blog in almost a year and dang did it feel so good. I miss this feeling. I will have something up soon to tell you guys what will be posted and when. I have a few big projects coming in the next few weeks that I will need your help on, ill post more details soon. Thank you for the support and I love you.

Tonight, I entered back into the effects world. I have been thinking about this idea for about 3 days and I knew it had to be done. This project was done with liquid latex and oil paints. I saw that there were rough edges, but I didn’t want to restart the whole project, so I took it as a lesson. I am a beginner so I knew it wouldn’t be perfect, but I really like how it came out. Enjoy!!!! 

I wanted to do a remembrance post, tonight. Something told me to share something that has already been talked about, yet might have been passed up. I went back and tried to find the best post, which led me to this one. This was the day that I almost quit my job, but I ultimately decided to stay strong. This is a great thing, because since I was strong, now I get to step into the next big role; becoming a GM. I want to share this to tell you that you might hate where you are but to not give up. If you feel like you can’t do it anymore then that’s your choice, but don’t let someone else define your happiness!!! 


Remembering; 

I feel bad to announce that I am behind in my schedule today and since I haven’t had the time to write-up in my schedule, I will need to step back tonight and post something short. This blog will be about my day and why I didn’t have a good day!
My day started a little after 5 a.m. as any other day in the life of Blake. I had to open my store, which use to be so fun for me. Recently I have begun to hate each aspect of my job, opening being the second thing on that list with running the store being the first. Closing which use to be my least favorite, has become my most bearable thing to do at my job, though I still hate the job.
But something happened today that usually doesn’t, I enjoyed opening the store. I got to the store on time for the first time in a while, and got all of my work done twenty minutes later. But when my General Manager soon ruined that.
He got to work two hours after me, and instantly got on my nerves. See he has this personality that nothing is ever wrong in the world. This is not a problem though, the problem is that he has to be up in your face about it. If any of you know the true me, you know I hate people getting up in my face which he seems to do every time we work together. Today was no different.
He started off the day in my face about truck being early, which should of been a good thing but to him it wasn’t at all. He complained about it for a few minutes then griped as I put the truck away. Then came the fun part. His favorite employee came in. He tells this employee how amazing he is for doing nothing, where I do everything and don’t even get a pat-on-the-back. Today (as previously said) was no different.
He gloated about this man for two hours, until I sent the man back to do some dishes. He then got back into my face about something stupid, trying to get me to talk to him. I talked a little, but wanted to focus on my job. At this point you probably wonder why my day was actually bad. It doesn’t seem like anything that should have effected me that much, that’s because that something hadn’t happened until I was off.
My boss wanted to give me my bi-yearly review on my performance. He sat me down and in moments set my anger off. He ranked me a 2 out of a 4, which is not good. I have to disagree! I feel I work my ass off to get my job done, and still get no respect. At the beginning of this year, I worked 120 hours every two weeks for two months. Working so much nearly killed me. Then came the part of the review that nearly made me punch him. He told me that I sucked at customer service, which is funny because in the 2 1/2 years I have worked there, I have had some of the best reviews and never have had a complaint. So if that is suckish, then I would be pleased to be good one day. Today was a bad day for me. But it wont get me down, I will be tough and get over it. I will take each giant down at a time, proving to only my wife and myself that I am truly amazing!

The Bears/
The Bears cut their 11-year veteran kicker, Robbie Gould today. He held the records for points, field goals made and field goal percentage, for the franchise. Due to the last years bombshell, where he cost them a few games, he was gave the boot today. This opens up a kicking spot for some promising kicker, in the league. I wouldn’t know who could cover such a big star, well besides myself.
I just got back from a workout when I found out the news. I am shocked about the news, but at the same time, I am excited. I have been waiting for such a long time, and now I can play for my Favorite team! In high school, I wanted to be a kicker (or at least punter) but was never giving the opportunity to go far. I could have been great, I could have been the best, but I only played one year.
I wanted to play more, but I hurt my foot then I fractured my wrist. These injuries (plus my suckiness) kept me out of the game, for the remaining years of High School. This hasn’t stopped me though, I have been working harder and harder. I have seen much improvement in my kicking game, and I think I am ready to take on the majors. I don’t need college, I don’t even need training camp. It is time to demolish the Green Bay Peckers, those trailer trash rejects! I will bring the NFC North home, for you guys, the real fans!
Wait,…….WTF! The Chicago choke signed another kicker? Connor Barth?!? The loser from Tampa Bay? He missed 5 field goals last year, probably <20 yarders, yet they signed him? He couldn’t even stay on the horrendous Saints, yet you think he can help this team? Also, you said he’s better than the 11-year veteran, Robbie Gould….Again…WTF? You could have had me, but its your loss. I will go back to my regular schedule.
I will find a football team, one that will love me more than Chicago. Maybe I can go to The Vikings, its not like their kicker can make anything. Good job, Walsh, you really hit that one. I would be careful on what I say, but we know he can’t hit his target. I feel sorry for his wife, since she will be mopping up after each bathroom break. I think I will try to go to Minnesota, that way, I can beat the Bears with that LOSING KICKER. They should have kept Gould.
Since, I have a few years to practice, I will leave my highlights below. The video is very small, for some reason, so please zoom in to see it. The video will start automatically and wont take long to finish. My highlights are the future of this season, for the Bears, Enjoy….

The new hair

Posted: July 11, 2016 in Uncategorized
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

   I am feeling very fresh. Why? Well I’m glad you asked, it’s all because of my brand new hair cut! Before I had long shaggy, heavy hair, but now I have short, light, and cool hair. I haven’t had short hair in almost a year, and it’s been killing me. My hair has been getting in my eyes, falling on my shoulders, making my face itch, and making it feel like something on me, but now I don’t have to worry about that. I will now have no worry at work, because my hair’s too short to fall into food, and I won’t have to worry about my face itching during an order. But the best part of the whole thing, is the fact that I am the one who cut it.

    I am very anal with haircuts, and will never step into a barber shop. I use to have my dad cut it, but I have grown out of his house, and now I am on my own. Also, he likes to cut my hair super short, but I no longer like having super short hair. When I moved out of his house, I tried having someone cut my hair, but they made it look like waves. I was pissed when I saw the results, so after I fixed it, I went out and bought my own clippers. Since then, I have been cutting my own hair. That way, if I mess up, I can’t blame it on anyone else and I know me better than anyone else.

    But this wasn’t always the same Blake. This Blake did like getting his hair cut, and allowed others to cut it, way back when. I was young, I was dumb, and I didn’t know what hair styles there were, but I knew that my dad always gave me a “flattop.” My dad offered to take me to the barber with him. I was young, so I told him that I would. I wasn’t planning on getting a haircut, nor did I want one. I was okay with my dad cutting my hair. I told him this, and he agreed. But after a hour of waiting in the barber shop, I was sold into getting a haircut. The barber asked “what would you want today?” I told him that I wanted a ‘flattop’ he said “okay.” After twenty minutes of this barber messing with my hair, he turned me around. My eyes were burning from the sight of this hairmess.

The flattop was too long, it didn’t seem that he cut anything off, I asked for him to cut more. He huffed and cut a little off, still not even close to what I wanted, but I knew he wasn’t going to keep cutting, so I said okay and got up. The bill was $15. $15!!!!! Are you serious! That’s a crap load of money for a shit job. I didn’t even get what I wanted. Since that day I haven’t stepped into a barber chair, I won’t either. If I’m going to pay someone that much, why not just buy the crap myself?
    That experience traumatized me, forever. I don’t want anyone touching my hair. I love every hair on my head, so why would I allow others to ruin my beauty? I say f$#k them, I’ll just do it myself. Though, I know there are great barbers, I still don’t want to have someone else to accidentally screw it up. So as you see, I cut it myself!

On other hand, I had something come in the mail, yesterday. I have been shopping on ‘wish’ and recently bought a cute little gift. If you know me, you know I like to golf. Well, I found tees that meet my personality perfect.

  Yes they are nude girl golfing tees, but they only cost me $1, so who is the real winner. Also, I can now “smash” a girl, and now get into trouble!

When I buy coffee, I don’t buy the foam cup, that leads to me filling it up and putting a gallon of sugar in the coffee. No, I spend the extra money and buy a java monster. My favorite so far has been the Irish blend. I love the way the sugar blends with the strong coffee, but there is something that I always forget to do.
Java monsters are in tin cans, almost like a soda, so I don’t think to shake the little can of happiness. But then when I open the can and take the first drink, it taste like a water-downed espresso shot, which is the third worst taste in the world. I almost want to throw away the coffee, because I cant shake it, since it is opened. But then I thought of a great idea.
I put my life at stake, every time I do this, but I found a way to shake it. I will open the can, realize the coffee isn’t stirred, but I don’t freak out anymore. I simply put my tongue inside of the sharp opening and tip the can up and down a few times. The coffee is then stirred, and ready to be drank.
You would think that I would know to shake it, since I buy them almost daily, but that isnt the case. Either it is super early in the morning, or I figured I would have shook the can by the time of consumption. Both lead to that first horrible gulp, which stays in my mouth in the duration of the whole can. It almost ruins the taste of the coffee, but I can’t stop.
These coffees are so addicting, monster is horrible enough as an energy drink, so why would you put two of my weaknesses together. I am shocked that my heart doesn’t give out, with all of the caffiene it must endure, but it is stronger than the abuse, which I’m thankful for!
If you take anything from this post, take this, don’t forget to shake up certain drinks. This may include orange juice, coffees, yahoos, and milks. The taste of these items without shaking, will lead to a taste like orange juice and toothpaste. You have had an experience with an addict, please take the time to shake your drinks, it could save a taste buds life!

      Tim Tebow has been released from the Philadelphia Eagles on 9-4-15 the day before the 53-man roster is due to be in.
     
       Tim Tebow went 11-17 in his passing attack against the New York Jets in the teams last Nfl Preseason game. This game was Tim’s last opportunity to show Chip Kelly that he was worth one of his roster spots. As of yesterday, it seemed Tebow Time was about to reoccur with the trade of M. Barkley after his poor preseason performance.
      Chip Kelly gave both of the players a half of playing time to impress him for the third-string QB spot. Tebow outshined Barkley in all areas of play. Where Barkley only had 45 yards in 4 completions and 1 interception. Tebow had 189 yards in only 11 completions, but also had a pair of touchdowns with the blemish of one interception.
With the cut of T. Tebow, this puts him in the Free Agent pool for the third season in the row, going into week 1. It seems that this is the end of Tebow, where no other team is seeming interested in this Florida Superstar.
     
        Tebow led the Denver Broncos to the Division title against the New England Patriots after beating Kyle Orton out of the starting spot, after a 1-4 start to the season by Orton. Though he got to the divisional title, he would be dominated leading to a 45-10 loss. Patriots would lose to the Giants in the Superbowl.
