   Today, I was suppose to tell you guys about my last few years, as it has been a few years since I started blogging. I am truly pained to inform you, that I won’t be able to get that up tonight. I know I have been full of excuses these last week’s, but I ain’t on that anymore. I am not trying to make an excuse, I just bit off a bit more than I could chew. See when I said that I would get this project done, I expected to have it done in the first few days of this week. With me being sick, working, and also working on a couple other projects, the time just slipped away. I found myself working on it yesterday and today, but the fact that I have been blogging since 2011, puts everything back.

I want to include every special moment, memory, and stat that someone might find fascinating, which means that I also have to dig deep, which is actually harder than I thought. The fact that I have over a hundred comments that I had to read and decide if it was worry to be in this post, took a huge amount of time. It took so much time that I only got the main stats done for Impromtdude, this doesn’t include my blogspot stats, or any other blog stats, its just a lot of work to do while working, also.
    But tomorrow I have an early day at work, and Ariel doesn’t get off until around three, which means that I have a couple hours (plus time at home) to get everything done. I am truly upset that I couldn’t share with you guys, but I know that if I posted today, the post would have sucked. I would have rushed a lot of events, and it would have been a slopfest. But I promise you that I will have it done by tomorrow night, and you guys will love it.
   Anyways, I am also doing a few projects, revolving around Madden. I love football, so if you would like me to do a post about that, please tell me a challenge to do!

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.

I hate myself sometimes.
I am not the biggest fan of myself, every now and then. I actually hate myself most of the time, and the reason is simple; I get bored of something really easily, even if I am doing amazing at it. I have always had this problem, and it is something that has held me back in life, and in my dreams. I got bored with getting better with my Punting skills, I gave up on getting better with my guitar skills, and I have slowed down in my writing. I wouldn’t say this is due to boredom, but I wouldn’t know what to call it, so I will call it boredom.
I can never keep with one thing, long. I find myself going through a lot of phases, never getting great at everything, but staying average at everything. Its like if I got great at something, then I would get even more bored, and I would walk away from it. But if I take breaks from it, then I will always have to get better, killing more time and keeping the challenge in the hobby. This is why I have been slowing down on writing, well I think that’s the reason?
I saw myself slowing down on my writing career, when I started to get apparel. I was about to release a clothing line, new stickers, and many other things. This is when I started to feel myself pull back from the writing. It seemed that my mind knew that we were getting stuff done, and it got scared, stopping my body on a dime. I don’t know what is scary about blowing up, but it is a fear inside myself. I am legit scared to become someone in the writing world, that I will compromise my writing routine, disabling myself from becoming something. I just don’t know why its so scary. I would love to become famous, I would love for my writing to get noticed, and for it to be in newspapers, magazines, and various other outlets. I love the idea of the challenge, and would love for the idea to come into reality.
I am hoping that the fear will end, soon. I am forcing myself to write. I hate forcing myself to do something that I am hesitant to do, and would love to get over this, so I can start writing freely again. I would love some encouraging words, it really helps! Thank you, with your help, we will finally get over this!

I cant wait to show you guys the new hoodies that yoursignature.com are making for this blog, they were designed by yours truly, and giving to someone that has amazing talent at making personalized clothing, with the combination, I am about to have the most amazing apparel, that any blog has ever had. The design is on a charcoal grey, with the Impromtdude logo on the front, and Impromtdude signed on the back, in blue. I have posted a rough draft of the hoodie online, but it doesn’t compare to what it will look like, in person!

But hoodies are not the only thing that are coming to the blog, we also have t-shirts and stickers on the way. The stickers are a simple logo with the web address on the bottom, and the t-shirts will be the same design as the hoodie, with many color choices for the logo, and lettering! Today, I want to tell you guys more about how to receive free stuff, though!

I posted on my social media, that if you want to receive something free, then it will cost you. I also told you that I would tell you more later, well now is that time! In this world, it takes an artist between 5-7 years to becoming successful after they begin. With me just kicking it into overdrive on my road to being famous, that means that I have a long time to get there. There are a lot of people that don’t know about me, but know about you, which means that you are the best way to them. My offer is simple, you promote me, you get free stuff! Want to know more? Keep reading.

I recently made business cards. This will give people my name, where to find me, and what exactly I do. I need help handing them out. So I am here to purpose an idea, which is this, if you hand out 10 of my business cards to your friends, family, or co-workers, you will receive a free sticker. That is all you have to do, for every 10 (cards) you hand out, you receive another sticker. The amount is endless on how many you can receive, so what do you say?

Will you help me get out there? I have been building this amazing blog, for almost 2 years, and am ready to take the next step, being noticed. I am ready to connect with new artist, friends, and fans. This is my passion, can you help me fulfil my dream? If you will help, I would appreciate it!

                                                                                         If it is my mess, don’t clean it up!
         I come home from a long day at work. I want to spend a few hours writing. This is my routine, my routine never changes. But the moment I walked through the door I felt something wasn’t right. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but I knew something was out of place. My wife was sitting on the couch. My mother-in-law watching a video on her phone. I figured that I was freaking for no reason. I walked into the kitchen to get some brain food. After grabbing a snack from the shelf I came into the living room. I looked at my desk (in the corner) to see that someone put all the bills and newspapers coupons on top of my business space. I grabbed my chest, but luckily I got a grasp on myself. I almost cussed, this is how mad I was!
         I am one of those special beings that can leave a place a mess, but still know where everything is, but when someone else make the mess, that is when I get confused. I don’t know where they put my stuff. Not only do I lose where all of my stuff is, but I feel like my privacy is being invaded. I have personal notes on my desk. I also hold all of my secret blog ideas within the walls of my desk. These blog ideas are meant to be fully confidential until posted. Most of the time I won’t tell my wife what I am working on. I want all of my future post to be a surprise. There is nothing more annoying than someone ripping through my secrets, spoiling my surprises.
        I have been organizing my desk more frequently, in order to keep all of my secrets uncovered. This is to disable people from thinking they need to clean my stuff for me, or to think they can throw things on my desk. I want to be able to leave a lot of papers on my desk that have all my ideas on them, but as said before, I can’t put that much faith in this world to not steal my ideas. So I have been working on a new organization plan.
        I have a nine-shelve desk that I can use to store all my papers and tablet. But most of my space is taking up by a few needed things; My protein shakes, two Xboxes, laptop, tablet, gaming monitor, and games. But that still leaves five shelves that can be disposed of.
        Luckily I have three small shelves that I can use to place projects in. The first shelf is for project Ideas, or projects that were just thoughts that I never pursued, but still wanted to keep for a future day. The second shelf is for projects that I am in the middle of. With multiple projects going on at once it can become tough to keep it all together, yet it gets easier when you put all of the projects in their own protected sleeves!
         Then the final shelf is for the projects that I have completed. I classify anything that has been posted “Finished.” I don’t care if that son-of-a-gun is a part of a series it is finished. The rest of the series will be placed together when finished. No post will be removed from the finished pile, until I do my “Closing Post,” this is where I take a bit out of each post (from the whole year) and write a brand new post. I call it the “Blogs of the year.”

Today we get to celebrate the freedom of this country and all its glory. We have the privileges to do as we want, even with everything that is going on in the states right now, this doest make us any less free. We are the freest country in the world, and we should be proud of that. But with us being able to look at all of our glory, we must take the dark tunnel and see all of those who fell as they made this country what it is, and those who fight to keep it that way right now. I want to post a fast post before I go watch the fireworks with my love. This post is a thank you to those who love their country enough to go to the grave fighting for it.
Thank you soldiers for all that you do even if you have never went on tour, or if you are still in basic. Thank you for risking your life, and giving up any other dreams that you had to keep my home safe. Without you we wouldn’t be as strong as we are today. I would never be able to do the things that you do. I love to sleep, which I know you don’t get to do as much, sleeping to you is a privileges. I wouldn’t be able to put myself in the way of a bullet, but you do every second of the day. I wouldn’t be brave enough to disarm a bomb knowing it could explode at any moment, but you do it without sweating. And I wouldn’t be able to leave my family for a year or more, but you guys do it with a smile on your face, because you know at the end of the day, if you don’t do it no one else will. For doing all that you guys do, I want to thank you. Thank you for being the brave that keep this country as free as possible.
Today we should recongnize why we celebrate this day, it’s not only to throw a firecracker under grandmas bottom. Its not to cook out, even though I want a BBQ Rib right now. This day is the rememberance of when the best country in the world became the best and freest country. It is celebrated as a reminder that we are the victors in all we do. WE are the USA and We will never fall!
