I have some amazing news, guys! I was at the Dollar Tree today, while shopping for some Halloween decorations. My wife is trying to get her store in the mood and she doesn’t want to be too expensive. Where is the best place to go? The Dollar Tree, which is where we go when trying to save a buck. Well, we were in the line to checkout, and I saw something. There is this pen that allows you to write upside down, and I happened to buy it, today. This pen is called the “Anti-Gravity Pen.” This pen is used in outer space, lets take a look at it!

I saw this pen in the Slim Jim box (Funny place to find it) and thought “Oh, a crappy, cheap pen!” The pen looked like a big piece of plastic that just was calling for you to buy it. I went ahead and picked it up. When I first looked at it, I saw that there was a few black dots on the top. I thought this was the grey finish just chipped off, as I said before I thought this pen was cheap. But it was only a dollar so I put it with all the other items, along with my sweet tea :3. I assumed that I could at least do a review of it, even if it was a piece of sh*t. I also love pens, so what if this was the best pen ever? I would be ppissed to know I let it go for $1.

When I finally got a chance, I finally looked at the pen. The first thing I noticed was the awesome box. On one side, it shows you the cheap pen, but next to that it shows you what the pen does. This includes facts such as it having smooth ink flow, being the same technology used in outer space and it is able to write at any angles even upside down. It is able to write upside down due to the sealed pressurized ink cartridge. Another awesome feature is that the pen came in a fuzzy, black holder. It looked fancy with the holder.

I picked the pen out of the holder. The pen isn’t plastic, it is actually a metal. I was amazed by the heaviness of this pen. After my amazement, I took a look at the “Chipped” paint, just to see that it wasn’t paint, but it was actually ink. This is a big problem with these pens (as seen on reviews) which scares me to think it will start to leak soon. Some say this pen leaks after two-days, so we will have to keep a watch out for it. Until then will use it. The writing is bold. I compared it to my favorite Bears pen, and it compared nicely. The flow seems to stay the same way and doesn’t cut out. I was happy with this until the Bears pen did the same. I couldn’t tell a difference, they seem to be the same. This could be because they’re both Ball-point pens, but I don’t know. Also, the pen writes upside down, but so doesn’t every other pen that I have. I don’t seem the hype with this certain feature, but the pen is cool overall.

I am pretty happy with this purchase. Though, I am pretty nervous about the Ink leaking, since I don’t want it to be ruined, but it is something I am expecting. I am just glad I only paid $1 for it. Likewise, if it doesn’t leak, I will be a very happy pen owner, but who wouldn’t be? How could you not want a “space” pen? I recommend this pen, since it is only a dollar, but also I don’t want to say “buy it” until I see if it leaks. I will keep you guys updated!!!!!

I am feeling this new change. I would like to tell you guys of the change, but I think will leave that for another blog. Today, I will tell you guys about what is happening. I want to tell you guys the effects of my decision, mainly to show you that it isn’t that bad. I haven’t found any bad from my choice, but I have found a lot has been changing. The fact that I am more confident, not only in writing but also during my work. I am happier, I feel a new happiness arising.

     During the last week, I found that I am smiling more, even when I am mad. But the best thing is that my blog is rising. The stats are finally where I want them to be. I wanted to push myself to the next level, but I didn’t know where that was, so I called out to get some help, that is when I found this man. He was a very cool guy, he was wearing a trench coat, as he sat on the bench next to my work. He smiled, like an old friend, when he saw me. He got up from the bench, came over to me and gave me an index card. I was unsure about the card, but the logo caught my eye. His logo resembled the top of the pyramid of the dollar bill, but I couldn’t think of it at the moment, so I nervously put the card in my back pocket and walked away. As I walked away I heard the man proclaim that he had the answer to my fears, and to call him when I got my mind together. I threw up my arm and walked away.
I wanted to throw away the post card, I really did, but something was calling me to it. I didn’t know what the man meant or what sick game he was playing, but he seemed to know what I was going through. This what the moment that I had to make the decision; Would I carry my own, chasing a dream that seemed impossible or would I call him for help. After hours of sleeping on it, I decided to give him a call. He told me the keys of receiving the ultimate attention to my blog. I was amazed by his knowledge, but he said that he needed me to give him something in return. I figured this was a way to get money, so I simply chuckled. He didn’t find it as funny as me and told me that it was serious. I asked him to tell me what he needed. I wasn’t ready to hear what he said, but I knew that I was too far now to step back, so I agreed.
After I made my choice, he told me that I had to write it in stone, revealing my decision to the whole world. Knowing that my dad was going to have a heart attack, I chose to post it on the day that I closed, at my store, in order to be away from my phone when he read it. I wrote the letter, and signed it with the blood of my body. I then said the magic words, and boom I was in the club. I was now a part of something bigger than my understanding. During all of this, I was too busy seeking the instant fame, that I forgot what I just gave away and what it could do to me if I allowed it to get out of control. I started to regret my decision, fearing what I was doing, until the stats started to pour in. My blog views are higher than last week, my likes are piling in, and people are interacting with me. I even feel happier. My job has been easier, also. Costumers are drawn to me and are allowing me to keep my cool by not being stupid. I am enjoying this whole change, I couldn’t imagine being happier, and it could only get better from here on out. I am glad that I met that guy, if it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t have the passion to write you guys, anymore. I love you guys, I beg you to not hate me for doing this. Please realize, I am just trying to live my dream.
