    The plan was to keep this car going, until we were comfortable to buy a new one. This dream was sucked up, today when our car took a deep shit on our foreheads. We blew the head, not because we are careless, but because we didn’t have anything else to hold off the fate. It was going to blow one day, we were just buying time.
     We were in the line at Hardee’s when the car began to act up. All we wanted was a good breakfast, but you could say we got more than we could chew. The cat began to putter out of control, eventually dying. I got it to start again, but the damn was already done, there was enough life in the car to get home, but that’s all.
     I got out of the car to see what happened, lifting the hood and going straight to the dip stick. When I pulled the dip stick, I knew we were screwed. The first main sign of a cracked/blown head is milky oil. Guess what we found? Milky oil! That’s right!
     My head was spinning and my heart hurt, as we didn’t have a running car anymore and now we were out of our transportation to work. I still had to be at work at 3, which meant there was no time to get anything sorted out. This is when I called in and called my good ole dad. He told me that we would resurrect my old car, a project we wanted to do anyways.
      Long story short, we have a little work to do, but the car is running. We haven’t had to put much money into either. All we had to do is replace a thermostat and a new battery. Luckily we are in a good position to get everything sorted out and we are safe. It sucks that nothing went as planned, but atleast we are okay.
    We do have a blown head, but we also have another car. We will finish up the car tomorrow and get all the legal paper work done, other than that, we are still on plan to get a new car and house in 2017! Then we can start a family. For all those who ask!

I am so original that I will post this original idea.
I have been watching a lot of YouTube, more than I really should be. There is this funny challenge going around, and all of the famous Youtubers have joined to do this challenge. The YouTuber “Nigahiga” came out with this challenge, as he was sick of all the diss tracks between other Youtubers. He formed this challenge to smooth over the heat, as now people were challenged to keep their hate for themselves. He then challenged a few of his friends to do so! I listened to some of the video and trust me, they were amazing! I especially loved ||SuperWomans||. This led me to think, I have a lot of friends, on Facebook, that have been dealing with life, and I thought that they could get their minds off their problems by doing this challenge. Now, the original idea was to rap, but since I can’t rap, I will simply write out my hatred for myself! I hope you enjoy. Also if you are reading this, you should do this challenge and tag me in it!

“Oh, look, you’re back at this, again. Don’t you know that no one cares, no one listens to your thoughts. You keep posting, hoping that one day you will get big, but you won’t. You have weak skills, you have lazy ideas, your grammar sucks, and you question yourself too much. You think you are great, but who confirms it? No one! That’s right, you keep begging for confirmation, you should just stop, pack up the bags and get out of town. You are not cut out to be a writer, heck you aren’t even cut out to finish this li…see you can’t even finish your thoughts. Is that why you keep going into a “Writers block”? Are you out of ideas? HAHA you are! I should have seen that coming, that’s why you always share previous work, hoping that you can come up with a good idea, but it never comes. You ran out of the magic years ago, that’s why no one stays around. Your dad is your own fan, how pathetic. He is the only one that comments on your blogs! If it weren’t for him, your blog would have less views than Hellen Keller. Wow, I just compared your blog to a great, when you don’t even deserve to be in the same category as dog poo. 

You should stop! You’re not an artist, should I rewind back to your music career? Even your own sister wouldn’t listen to your first album. She pushed that out of her car, saying she wasn’t in the mood. That’s how everyone feels, though. No one wants to be bothered by any of your work! I hope one day you will see this, and will learn that you suck. But you wont, you will keep fighting for views, using clickbait to get ahead of the game, only to get a flat tire. The grim reaper has come and you’re done. …Night, night. Oh wait, did I forget something? I did! I feel like you now….Lets go back to Facebook….Let’s talk about your 34 likes on the page. You have been helping others, yet they have more likes than you, how pathetic! You cry yourself to sleep, every night, hoping that you will wake up and have more of a following, then will get jealous when others are better than you. Keep being salty, because you will never be good enough…have a good career at McDonald’s…..bye….”

This was simply for fun, I don’t feel this way at all. I actually love to see others grow. I hope you guys will join me, and share the love. I will love you forever if you give this a share!!!!

In 2013, we lost one of the best snacks, ever. Hostess had a company wide stike, where their workers refused to work. The company didn’t fall into the trap and decided to close their company doors. But Hostess’ snacks weren’t away for long, as they were bought by another company, which brought back the beautiful snacks to stores on July 15th, 2013. I can’t tell you how upset I was when they stopped selling zingers, my favorite snack from Hostest. So when they annouced that they were coming back, I spent hours, on the phone, trying to find these bars of calories. I wasn’t able to find the magical Zingers, but luckily Twinkies were back on the shelves. I grabbed three boxes and went home. Now, after three years, Hostess has brought us another amazing gift, and at the right time!
We had a fair start, in Springfield, which is still going on. Amazingly this treat hit the markets during this time. During the fair, I love to go grab a cheese-on-a-stick. There is also another treat I love, Deep fried Twinkies, the same item Hostess just released. Wal-mart had the treat, so after picking up my check, I ran over to the frozen section and grabbed a couple boxes. The deep-fried Twinkies come in the original vanilla and a rich chocolate. They cost $4.96/each, raising the question “was it worth it?” That question will now be answered. They recommend you to cook the Twinkies in the over, but I deep fried them.

image

From the first look, the vanilla Twinkies look like regular Twinkies. The coloring is slightly faded, but that is from being Frozen. The chocolate ones, on the other had, were really crumbly, almost looking like they were smoothered in Oreo crumbs, but the sweet smell almost cancel out the negative look. Before cooking the Original Twinkies I tried the frozen one. I must say, they actually taste better than the store sold snacks! They cook really fast, only taking three minutes, when frying, and an eight minute cook time when cooking in the oven. While cooking, there is no distict smell, but that isnt a problem! I did enjoy watching them cook, which, if you are frying, you will need something to hold the twinkies down, because they float, making it a little annoying when trying to make them.

After they cook, you have to let them sit for 2 minutes. I was worried that this would cause the insides to get cold and allow the crème to harden, but surprisinly it didn’t. When I cut the Original Twinkie open, the crème oozed out. It looked amazing. The fluffiest was not harmed during the frying. If it was all graded by looks, this treat would be the best treat since Zingers! But looks aren’t everything. I was ready to take a leap of faith, and try these amazing treats. I slowly took a big bite of the Hot Twinkie. The insides were still very hot, which I didn’t expect, making it very crispy. My first thought was they taste like a funnel cake, they were fluffy and the crème tastes like a mixture between Powder Sugar and Crème cheese. The Twinkie would taste even better with milk, but I didn’t have any milk. In all honesty, the Twinkie tasted just like the snacks, just a little sweeter, but it left a strange after-taste in my mouth.

image

The Chocolate Twinkies were a let down, sorry to tell you that! The only thing that was good was the sight of them. They looked crisp with a fluffy, vanilla inside. The crème was very runny, looking delicous, but the taste didn’t live up to the image! When I first swallowed it, I thought of Chocolate donuts. I usually like Chocolate donuts, but this time it was a nasty taste. The crème was very rich, almost too sweet. I know it started to hurt my teeth, right away. The Twinkies obsorbed the oil, making the inside really greasy. The after taste from the vanilla snack was the taste of the chocolate Twinkie. I wasn’t able to finish the chocolate snack, it was nasty…

image

I made a few, in the oven, to share the results (since this was the recommended cook). This took longer to cook, almost a whole six minutes more. I had 14 fried before I had seven out of the oven. I let them sit out the two minute. After the two minutes, I pulled one apart. The sweet middle wasn’t melt like the fried Twinkie. After inspecting the outside, I took a huge bite. Since this was the recommended way, I thought it was going to explode with flavor and it did, just not a good flavor! I would rather eat ten Chocolate Twinkies, then one of the baked ones. The baked Twinkies were so nasty that I was only able to get one bite out, before I began to gag. The flavor was soiled with a strong sour taste, even the sweet center was horrible. It wasn’t sweet and didn’t even taste like a Twinkie. I am unsure what it tasted like, well other than earwax! Yeah, it taste like earwax!!!!!! I wasn’t able to eat another bite, so I left it as “I hate this crap!!!”

I started this with asking a question, the question was “were the Twinkies worth it?” The answer is “Yes, they are.” I would buy them again, but this time I would only fry them, also would only fry one-at-a-time, to avoid getting a toothache! I do recommend these snacks, but only if you like Twinkies or funnel cakes, also only if you are going to actually fry them. If you expect to get a good taste out of the oven, then you should probably go to another treat! For $5 I really felt I got my money worth, though. I loved the original ones!
Love you guys!!!!

Dear Passion,

I really miss you. The time that we have spent together is amazing, but where did you go? Why can’t I get back to you? You left me, you chose to leave my side and go on by yourself. I don’t understand why you left my side, but I don’t want to do this by myself, anymore. We use to be so close, you use to be my sidekick, but now you are a mere stranger. I don’t like how I feel without you, please come back.
This career isn’t going to take off without you. I simply can’t keep this dream going without, so hear my cry and come back. This dream was the biggest part of my life, now it is simply something I do out of habit. You make it easy, but now it is hard. It was a few months ago, you packed your bags and decided to leave my side. You saw me on my knees, I was begging you to stay, but you got in the car and left. I watched as your car disappeared in the horizon.
I was crushed when you left. You don’t realize what you do to me, you are the reason I live. You have taught me to live life to the fullest, and to never give up on my dreams, so how could you give up on me, you are such a hypocrite. You told me to stop giving up so quickly, but that’s what you did. You saw that I was starting to get weak and you decided to take the easy road. You left me when I needed you the most, you showed me how much of a coward you are. Even if you tried to come back, I don’t even think I want you back.
The worse part is that you don’t know what you did. You think that I am fine without you, and that you are the same. But the truth is, without you I have gotten lazy. I no longer try at work, home, or in my side businesses. You make me want to sleep, all day, no longer wanting to pursue my future or my family. Don’t you get this? Do you understand that you are the reason for this? Do you even care? I bet you don’t care. I can see you now, you are sitting in a hotel room. The room is dark, there is one tv on but the lights are off. Your eyes look over at the clock, its 12, it was another day without you going outside. You are no longer lively. No, now you sit in your own hell. You attempt to break out of this hell, but you have no where to go. The directions to home have been lost, you lost the way back to me. That is why I am so mad, because I never mattered to you, anyways. The best part is that I have been looking for you. I stand outside of the door, to the hotel, I want to knock but I can. The fear of you not wanting to help me freezes my body, I can’t move. That is when the door opens. You stand in front of me. I feel a hand on my shoulder, I look up to see that you are looking at me. Tear-stained eyes look into mine as you reach out for me. Your body tugs me closely to yours, you give me a huge hug. For the first time, in months, you are finally back inside me.
Thank you for coming back, now lets get to work. We have a lot of work to do!!!!!

After 4 hours of driving, a few hours of adventure and a thousand memories captured, we are finally home. Today was amazing. We got to go to the zoo, then the science museum, and topping off the night with arcade games and go-carting. It was definitely something to mark down as “do it again” and hopefully we will, very soon!!!!

P.s. all together we won 1500+ tickets from the arcade games!

   The day is set. The departure has been placed in time, and now we have to wait. The wait is only making things more exciting, since tomorrow, I will be adding another first to the list.
     The ride has been a wild one, a long road that had a lot of turns and a few bumps, but now we can say it’s happening. Though we don’t get to stay the whole time, we still get to spend the day with some amazing people. But most importantly, we get to go out of town.
     With working hard, I have been wanting to get away, if it was only for a day, to enjoy myself with amazing people. That chance came up when my wives family asked us to come with them to St. Louis to enjoy the zoo and possibly go-carting. I have never been to the zoo, so I am excited that we get this chance, but the problem was finding a car.
     We have a reliable car that gets us to our job and around town, but I feel that it lacks the ability to get to Missouri. We desperately need a few spark plugs and a fix in the transmission pan (as it leaks,) so I said no to going, because I didn’t want to take the chance. But my wife wanted to go, and when she puts her mind to something it happens. With her wanting to go, I told her to find the way, which she set out doing quickly.
     At first, she tried to have her dad lend us his car, but he said no. She then asked her mother, but she was stingy to that idea, leaving us with no option. I saw the heartbreak in her eyes, but I didn’t have the answer to this problem, well until she said his name.
    During all of the planning. We forgot that my dad had a great car, and he wanted to spend time with my dog, Nimaka, but I wasn’t going to ask. I never want my father to think I’m using him, because I am truly not. But he was the last option, so I told Ariel to ask him. She asked him.
    Two nights before the trip she texted him, but he didn’t answer. She assumed this was him saying no. We had to accept the fact that we couldn’t go, but she didn’t give up. She sent him another text, the very next day, asking him if that meant “no”. He explained that he never got the text and told her that we could use the car. She was beyond happy when he told her, so excited she called me instantly.
     Now we have the car, we are all ready for the trip. We have the money for the trip. I am off work, she’s off work, and we are both healthy, which means one thing! Tomorrow I will be spending a lot of time out in public (not my favorite part, by far!) With my family. I will be posting a lot of pictures from the zoo. I am excited to spend this first with a great lady! Let’s just hope I don’t fall in with the gorillas!!!

   Hey guys, I hope you are having an amazing day. It has been a slow dragging day, but I’m work now and ready to relax. I have a Friday off, tomorrow. A first in a long time, so I hope to relax and catch up on writing and other various things.

   Today, I want to say “I love my family!” This includes any aunt’s, uncles, cousins, brothers, sisters, and parents. I love all of my family. They are super supportive (especially my dad,) and they would do anything to help me, which is why I love them! But I have to give a huge shoutout to someone that isn’t even blood!

    My cousin, Matt, is truly amazing. The other day, I wrote a post about my new Flash figure. In the post I was talking about how I wanted to get a Jason Vorhees figure and a Hulk figure. I had all the intentions on buying them, I just wanted to get bills paid first, then I would buy the figures. Well, I got into the car yesterday for work. Ariel and I were giving him a ride (since they work together.) He got into the car and handed me a big box! I had forgotten that I even posted a post about those figures, so imagine the surprise when I opened the box. I opened the box to see the two figures, laying right beside each other.

   My once tired body was now awake as I was filled with joy. The figures looked amazing in person, better than they looked online! My collection is satisfyingly complete. I would be okay with never getting another figure!

   I want to say thanks to this amazing dude! You are truly a great friend, family, and brother! I could never ask for a better family member! Thank you for caring and for thinking of me, I’m in awe of the selfless act. It might seem like a small gesture, but it means a lot that someone would go out of their way to make someone happy.

   Now, I want to introduce the new members to the clan. Jason Vorhees (my favorite serial killer) and The Hulk (my favorite Marvel superhero) are now on the desk of fame, and are now considered family!

When I first found out, I was nervous. I was nearly 20, and was just starting my life when I found out she was pregnant. She was a beautiful blonde hair girl, she had a shining smile, a soft voice and held herself very high. No one was going to take this girl down, no one with a boulder or with a chainsaw, she was unbeatable. This is the time of my life that I don’t want to give up, these are qualities that keep me searching for answers to the questions “Why did it happen?” and “Will I ever be happy again?” These questions will never be answered, because no one knows why, and she was the only happiness that I had. She is gone now, she isnt coming back, ever, but why do I blame myself?
I fight with myself every night, trying to force myself to believe the lies, that she was sick, and that she didn’t have that long to live. It is hard to give into those thoughts, especially when she felt so alive. She was always full of so much energy, but in a months time, all that energy was gone. She was rotting away, and here I was sitting around thinking she was going to be fine. I truly thought that she was going to fight back and win, but the longer the fight lasted, the quicker her strength failed her. It wasn’t long after the doctors announcement that she was found dead, on the kitchen floor.
I had to be the one to find her, I had to be the first to grab her cold body. The pain that came with seeing her was breathtaking. I tried to revive her,  I really did, but she was gone. The saddest thing is that I couldn’t even call an ambulance. I was frozen to her, I was stuck to the lifeless body. I tried to let go, but something kept ahold of me. I couldn’t let go, I felt like giving up on holding her, was equivalent to giving up on us. I wasn’t going to give up on her, so why would I let go?
It finally came to me, she was gone. I had to let go, she was no longer with us. I couldn’t hold onto something that wasn’t here, I couldn’t do that to me, but also, if she was being held back because of me, I didn’t want to do that. She deserved to go to her special place, with all the pain on earth, how could I deny her peace? I couldn’t, and I didn’t. I let her go, I finally let her go. The cancer came in between us, the damn cancer came between us. I still sit here, in this wooden chair, waiting for her to come outside with a glass of sweet lemonade, but pain consumes me, when I realize she’s not coming out. The days aren’t the same anymore, she lays in the cemetery on the other side of town.
She was my Becky, she was the first love that I had, the only one that I have loved. She was taking from me too soon, but recently I have been thinking, what if I met up with her? What if she is still waiting for me at the door, I can’t keep her waiting. I have the solution.
With loneliness in his heart, George couldn’t live this life anymore. The counseling wasn’t working, he was seeing Becky in his mirrors, in the shower, and in his bed. The image of his wife was now a haunting memory, one that he no longer wanted to have. His obituary read this “I didn’t want to leave, but cancer can’t stand between us now.”

Making a change-
I love that my fans are starting to comment on my blog more, it means a lot to know someone is reading this blog! Recently, a fan sent me a message, telling me that my blog was how she was feeling. It meant a lot to know that my life is like others, and that we all deal with the same troubles. The troubles that we are facing is depression.
I posted a blog, titled “Help,” it was a blog asking for someone to help me deal with my depression. I was feeling down, and didn’t want to do anything. At the time, I didn’t even want to write, but I did, and I had a great response. People were messaging me, commenting, liking, and sharing my post; it was a great day for my blog, but also a great day for me, knowing that someone actually does care. But the best comment, was from a girl, and she told me that she was feeling the same way. I responded to tell her “we should start a group.” This group would be on Facebook, and would help those who don’t have anyone, but who are also dealing with depression. It would be for people to connect with others, like them.
She added me on Facebook, and we began to get to know each other, finding out small details of each other, so that when we start working together, we will have an idea of who we are working with. She is actually really cool, you couldn’t tell that she is depressed, but that’s the amazing thing, you usually can’t. People deal with depression differently, Sam and I deal with our depression the same way, though. We hide it deep down, hoping that no one tries to pry, because if they did we would have to open up, something we don’t like to do.
I have always wanted to do something like this, but never have found the will to go through with it. I saw, making a page like this, taking advantage of the situation, but now I realize, it is actually a great tool. We can use this to help, the shy and depressed, meet new friends. That right there is enough to make the page! We are excited to get this out to you guys, and we hope that you will support it, meaning sharing and liking, we really want to make a difference in the world and this is the best chance that we have!

More than 15 million adults use social media to reconnect with old friends, and to stay in touch with fellow family members; but what kind of effect does Social Media really cause? In a research, I found that Social Media has been a great tool to rekindle dormant friendships, eliminates social isolation, and helps one become more creative while also getting more support. But with all the good effects, are there any negative effects? Research suggests Social Media makes one lazy, causes more cyber bullying, and causes one to compare themselves to another.

image

In June of 2014, 74% of adults were using Social Media. They were said to be using the Social media to reconnect with dormant relationships. Facebook is good for one thing, the fact that everyone has it, and that it is very user friendly. You can search for someone, and three seconds later, you are talking to them through the messaging application. This helps those who moved away (years ago) find their long lost friends. With it being so easy to find old friends, Social Media is now the leading way to keep up with social ties, making it a lot easier to make and keep friends.

It is much easier to express yourself over a computer, which makes Social media a great outlet to get out of Social Isolation. With groups for various things, you can find something you like and discuss it with others, who share your same opinions and/or hobbies. Facebook pages are easy to navigate, and there are discussion boards posted, everywhere. Making it very easy to find what you are looking for. The more groups you join, the more friends you will likely make. It is a fantastic way to build new connections, and make life-long friends.

  46% of adults tend to post original photos, videos, and ideas on their social media. When they post original work, they are considered “Creators.” Where 46% share original work, there are 41% that share work of others, these people are called, Curators. 56% of people do both, which means that more than half of the social media world is being creative; they are using their talents to make art and post it. This allows for people to express themselves more, and for others to gain new ideas, and try new things.

So now we know the good things that come from social media. Social media helps reconnect old friends, but also helps make new friends and connections. Also, it helps more than half of 14 million people, become more creative, through creating and sharing their work to the world. But with every good thing, there has to be some kind of bad, but what could be so bad about reconnecting friends, and helping the quiet express themselves?

Social media gives the idea that you no longer have to try! With everyone, at the tips of your callused finger; one might think they no longer have to go out and make new friends. I mean, why would they? They now can make new friends on social media, which requires no human contact and no effort, also you don’t have to wear pants! Sounds GREAT! But that’s the problem, Social Media makes it too easy to connect with people that one will become lazy, and stay inside, all day.

Even with staying inside, one is still at harm when suffering the news feed, of Social media. There is an enemy that stalks their prey, waiting for the right time to devour their souls. These people are called Cyberbullies, one who uses electronic technology to make fun of others, and they are dangerous! In 2013, 42% of teens were falling victim to cyberbullies. The idea of cyberbullying should make you sick; since 1 of 10 people attempt suicide, this is 20% of cyberbullying victims. With 81% of the cyberbullies saying they do it because it’s easier to get away with, should raise every eyebrow.  The only goal these scum have, is to make others feel inferior and worthless. They will take your pictures, videos, and ideas, and use them against you!

Finally, Social Media makes one compare themselves to others. Girls envy other girls profile pictures, wondering why the other girl has more likes, causing the first girl to fall into a depression, thinking what she has to do to get more attention, when the second girl is living a double life. The second girl is on Social media, posting pictures of her boobs, because she doesn’t have anything else to live for. The likes that pour in, are her only friends. She needs the likes to get her through the day. But since the first girl thinks she has the best life, ever, she will now try to become this girl, leading to a lot of heartache. This is the biggest problem with Social media, people live double-lives in order to get likes. They will post how great their lives are, but in reality, it’s as horrible as someone in depression. They might have money, but they are lacking in a family, or they have a great job, but they have too much debt for it to matter. The problem is simple; people want to be accepted, so they will say and do whatever it takes to get the acceptance.

Social media is an amazing place to meet new friends, by sharing the same interest and opinions. This can be done by joining a new page, or even befriending new people. Also, it’s the best place to reconnect with old friends, that you went to school with. You have an idea, this is a great place to find others to help you grow that idea. Social Media has a lot of great things, but it also can become something that we never wanted. With the risk of becoming anti-social in public, or falling into depression because of arrogant bullies, or simply not feeling like you fit in, because you don’t have everything, everyone else does. Social media is a great place, but it can also be a playground in hell, there are a lot of good effects, but also a lot of things that can lead to a disaster. Be careful when you are on social sites, and don’t post anything that might be used against you, later on down the road.
