Today marks a year after we hit our first deer. The night was cold. I just picked up Ariel from work as she just got off a closing shift. I was excited to see her but I wanted to get home. We usually stopped at the gas station, but for some reason, we didn’t stop this night. It was probably because of the dropping temperature, but we have to think; what would have happened if we stopped? 

 We made it about five miles out of Chatham. Our conversation must have distracted me for a split second. When I came back to reality, all I could see were deers. There were four deers, each standing in front of each other, as they crossed the street. I was unable to swerve or stop, so I took the hit. I smashed into the first one, the second one hit my drive side (not hard) and the last two both hit the back of the car, ripping off the bumper. We both were startled, but Ariel began to cry hysterically. 

It was her first car. Her first car was just wrecked, but we didn’t want to stop. I told her that I wanted to get out of the area. She agreed. I was just ready to get home, so I kept driving. The whole ride home Ariel couldn’t stop crying. I tried to comfort her, but I also felt guilty for wrecking the car for some reason. I know I couldn’t have changed what happened. There wasn’t a way out of the situation; I did what I could have. 

When we got home, I ran to the front of the car. The damage was bad. The car was most definitely totaled. The right headlight was gone, along with the hood being pushed up. The hood was one inch away feom the radiator cap. That deer really screwed that car up, but luckily we were okay. 

The car ran okay for us for the remainder part of the year, but it finally died. We think it was connected to the deer, but we aren’t so sure. Either way, that happened a year ago. That night was a damn disaster and I hope we never have to go through that, again. 

Deers suck, stay safe!

Well what can I say? My father helped me do something that I never wanted to do. I am glad that he did because it came out perfect! My father and I like to get in petty fights, but it usually ends with a good life lesson. This being said, my father taught me something that ended up teaching me one of the best lessons ever; how to wrap presents!!!

Tis was but last Christmas that my father taught me something new. We sat around the living room with gifts to wrap, but I wasn’t going to attempt to wrap, because my hands have no rhythm. The presents sat naked and cold on the floor. They yelled for us to dress them, but we were failing them. This is when my father told me to do something, but I told him to do it, instead. He got up off the couch and began to wrap the presents, then he turned to me and told me that they were my presents, so I was to get up and help him. I got up after groaning and started to help him. Half a second later he got onto me about how I wrapped a present.

In his defense the present looked horrible, but I didn’t know how. What was I suppose to do? I didn’t how to wrap. That is when my father took me by his wing and showed me how my grandma wraps her gifts. At first, I wasn’t wanting to listen. He was a know-it-all. But I knew that I couldn’t get out of this without learning. I couldn’t get the wrapping down so I quit! My father got petty about it, but he finished the wrapping!!!

That was the end of that experience. I never thought I was going to use that knowledge, but this year it came into good use. For the first time, I actually shopped for my wife alone, but that also meant that I had to wrap them alone. I had no idea what I was doing, but then I stopped and thought. I went back to that day and thought about how my dad folded the edges and brought them up together. As I thought about that day, I looked down and I  was done with one present. The rest of the presents came with ease. I was done within a hour!!

I don’t know what this was written to say, but I think I want to tell you guys to cherish the little moments. Don’t waste small moments being mad, you never know when those moments will come back and help you out. Wrapping a present isn’t a huge moment, but it opened my eyes to see that I can learn so much from my father. Christmas is about spending time with those you love, which I can guarantee you will have a small moment that can change your life; don’t waste it!

Tonight, something really Scary happened. If you have been following my Facebook, you will know that I started a small page for a great guy named ‘Bart.’ Bart then went out and got a good team. I gave him the permission to get the team and he was allowed to give them pet names. He named them Ginger (because he is a Gingerbread man) and Francis. 

All was good until Ginger wanted to go outside after a huge ice storm. They were bored, I get that but they should’ve stayed in. Though they didn’t stay in, they learned their lesson. 

Ginger was running outside and fell down the stairs. As he fell down the stairs his head slammed into the brick step and gashed his head open. according to Bart, he was getting ready when he heard a huge thud. Him and Francis ran outside to see what happened. When they saw blood Francis ran back in and got some toilet paper. He then ran back and patched up Ginger, while Bart stayed by his side as his blood froze to the step. Ginger is now resting and doing well. Here are the photos!

“Wow!” That is all I can say about the new episode of The Walking Dead. Tonight was the season 7 premiere and I wasn’t expecting what happened, though I had a pretty good idea. I will not be spoiling anything, so lets give a short reaction to what we all saw tonight.

The episode starts out very slowly. I was literally screaming at the T.V. to hurry the hell up, because they didn’t show crap at the beginning, as I thought this was going to happen in the first moments of the show. Though the show wasn’t impactful in the beginning it surely picks up pretty quick. It was probably ten minutes into the show that we saw the glorious death of one or many of Ricks group, and it was amazing. I thought that AMC would have dulled it down a bit, but you can’t tell at all. The death was gory, gruesome, and heartbreaking. There was a lot of guts and a huge shot of blood.

I will say this, my favorite character was taken from me, but it wasn’t hard for me to take. Negan has a way to make everything easy to take. He is funny enough to make everyone hate to love him. He was talking to Rick and all I could do is laugh at how funny he was, even when he was being very Fu*#ing serious.

It was great to watch this episode, and it seemed to start a new fire for the show. Robert Kirkman introduced Negan in the comics when he saw that the comic was settling down. I feel that is why we are seeing him now. The show is great, but we needed a new flame. This is Negan. Negan brings something to the show that wasn’t there, but I don’t know what it is. I just see that Negan is going to make this show 100% better. Jeffery Dean Morgan plays him very well, he is that sweet ole dad but at the same time he is that jackass neighbor that you want to hit. He plays the good and bad cop, Jeffery is great. This will be important for this series and will bring new life back into the show. But we will see what happens. I didn’t want to give away any secrets, so sorry that this was very vague, there isnt much to talk about otherwise, everything shown gives away another secret, so just watch the damn episode.

My self doubt story.

When I was little, I was made fun of everyday. I wasn’t poor or anything, but everyone around me seem to make fun of me as I was. I remember a few times that I was broken because of these comments, so today (in an attempt to share awareness) I want to talk about one event that led to me being full of self doubt.

When I was about 7, my house burnt down. That day, I wanted to stay home but my mom told me that I wasn’t allowed to. I didn’t feel good,  but it wasn’t a stomach ache, it was more of a heart ache. I didn’t know what was going on, but my mother pushed me out the door. I was in art class, later that day and my hands started to shake for no reason. My friends were worried for me, but I told them that I was fine then went back to painting my picture. I remember that day all to clearly. I was at recess when a crowd of kids ran to the slide. I was such a follower, so I followed them and asked what was going on. They all pointed to the sky, where a cloud of smoke hovered over the town. The excitement was quickly put out and we went back to playing four-square. Later that hour, I was called into the principals office. I knew I wasn’t in trouble, but they still wanted to see me. When I walked through the doors, my mother was sitting there fully covered in ashes. Her face was a dark grey and she smelt like smoke. They had me sit down and told me that our house had burnt down. I didn’t fully understand what that meant, but I could tell it wasn’t good. I didn’t know what to do, but my mom pulled me close and hugged me. I pulled away and told her that she smelt like smoke. The room irrupted in a giggle. During a bathroom break that day, we were all standing in line. The kids were all talking about the smoke cloud, that is when I told them that it was my house that burnt down. They all laughed and began to mock me “You don’t even have a house” “Stop lying, you don’t have a house like you don’t have any friends.” The teacher came up to me in line, after talking to the principal and gave me a hug, followed by saying that she was very sorry about my house. The kids were in shock, as I was telling the truth, and surrounded me. They acted like the words said previously were never said, but deep down it was still killing me, because it was clear that it was all true.

They were probably right, I didn’t have any friends. No one liked me because I was different, because I didn’t have the money like everyone else. My family was just broken apart, my mother was trying to figure everything out. Then our house burnt down, I was literally all alone in the hardest days of my life, the only thing I had was my messed up life and the words that were said that day. Those small words have haunted me through my life and have caused me to think low about myself. I usually find myself mot saying how I feel, because I am scared of what people will say. I don’t want to be hurt like that day, again. That day also took away all my self confidence, which I still lack to this day especially when it comes to sharing any of my own work.

Bullying will ruin a life, even if the bullying isn’t severe. That is why its important to stand for those who can’t stand for themselves. If you see someone getting bullied, don’t walk the other way. No! Save them. Even if it is just telling the person to leave them alone, you don’t know what will save that persons life. I am not only talking about his/her actual life, I am also talking about how they feel about themselves for the rest of their lives. Don’t be a part of the problem, instead be the light into the dark world. Be different, you could help make someone great.

Last night was a very good night. It was the first time that I ever went to multiple Haunted Houses in one night, and let me say it was pretty fun. Overall the night was full of jump scares, fog machines, hanging heads and chainsaws. This lead me to rate the night with a B-, overall. This will be a quick review of each haunted house of Scarefest!

    Creepyworld- I gave this certain attraction a C+. This was a huge attraction, with a total of 12 small haunted houses, all in one. The biggest problem was the over use of Chainsaws and the failure to add more jump scares. There was too many open spaces that could have been utilized for their favor. Also, the jump scares were easy to call out. This would be perfect for teenagers or the faint of heart. I didn’t find it scary, but the creativeness of the different houses made up for that.

Abyss- This location was inside a haunted brewery, down in the basement. This basement was full of fog, making it nearly impossible to see anything. It was also really dusty and muggy, as it smelt like an old basement. It became hard for me to breathe with all the dust. The fog was also bad for the jump scares, as the groups were more focused on getting through the attraction without dying, other than being scared of “the monsters.” It took us twenty minutes to get through this certain one, and I would give it a B, overall.

Silo-x- I knew Ariel would love this since it was focused around zombies. It only cost five dollars more to get a pass, and there was no line, making it perfect. I want to say this was a great house, but it wasn’t that impressive. I think it would have been better if they weren’t just wearing zombie mask. It didn’t feel real enough, if that makes sense. Other than that, I got a few zombies to follow Ariel around and scare her. I think this has great potential for future years, and it is something I would pay to do again. Grade: B

The Darkness-  I have very mixed feelings of this one. I like how there were different sections, such as one section of ancient horror, where as the next section was about zombies/crazy people. Other than that, the props were too extended. We had a few situations where Ariel and I got hit in the face/head by props.(This was actually in three of the four houses) There was a bear that swung his arm into Ariel’s head, even though she was all the way over. This could have ended badly, but gladly it didn’t. Also, this event used fog machines too much, making it hot and hard to breath. We ended up having 4 people get dizzy after we got out, out of 10. That is pretty sad! I gave it a B- due to the different sections.

I really loved this event and want to go back, but I hope they change the problems we faced. If they don’t fix anything, then this will never be fully worth the 70+ dollars we spent per person. I had a lot of fun with the family and wouldn’t mind doing something like this again. I would highly recommend going, just be cautious to not get killed by the props. Thanks for reading!

  I spent the night at a local haunted house. This would be my third time going to one, ever. The haunted house was called “The Boo Crew.” I found it to be a very well put together event. Since this was a first time, I didn’t know what to expect, but it was definitely worth the money paid.
  First, you get to go through a outdoor path full of zombies, ghost, a chainsaw wielding maniac and a few clowns. The groups were too dang close, so we weren’t able to get any jump scares, as the other group received them all. This spoiled the fear and sucked up all the suspense. Other than that, we were actually having a great time, but nothing compared to the main event.
  The main event is a barn full of special effects. The theme seemed to be maniacs, because when you entered the kitchen a woman jumped out. She would nearly push you to the door, screaming for us to not talk to her “slave” (a woman with her hands stabbed into a table.) The acting was pretty good and the jump scares were on par.
  After the event, we were lucky enough to go back stage and see how they run the show. It is fascinating to see all the technology that is set up for a haunted house. In the first room, there was a big display of camera’s from all over the haunted house. Then they lead you through the back area and up some stairs. Once you climb up the stairs you are directed into the control room. This room had a wall full of wires that activated certain areas of the barn, the guy told us that one switch would kill all the props and bring the lights on (in case of an emergency.) This is precautions for the possible fire outbreak or in case a person got hurt.
  We were able to talk to this man about his crew and what an average night would be like. He was unsure of the break system, but did notify us that they have designated persons that walk through with water, for the thirsty crew. He spoke about how, on a busy night, there could be up to 60 volunteer crew members. Also, any money they do make, they will go on to help the community by helping kids get glasses and many other charitable acts. In the back there is a break room full of goodies. I was excited more about the special effects taking place, as a woman was painting a clowns face.
  While we were in the break room, my wife told me that I should volunteer. I really want to, now. I’m thinking about spending this year practicing, then I will offer my help. Either way, my cousin also brought up a great idea. He said that we should open up our own haunted house. I have wanted to create a haunted house for a while now, so we will see where that goes. We are thinking about starting small, possibly with a haunted hayride then working up. We have the talent, now we just need to make it something lively.
    What should go into a haunted house? What is your biggest fear?

Getting ready for death.

It is the month of all spooky things. This month is full of spooky people, witches, zombies, ghouls, werewolves, and many other creatures, but nothing is more scary than what I bought today. The purchase might be the dumbest one of my entire life, but I am taking you guys with me!

I had the worse day in a while. I found it to be a depressing day, which I tried to fight back but the depression won. I let everything get to me. This led me to find a negative in everything. I started by trying to get attention on Facebook, but instantly regretted it and took it down. Mainly what happened was, I didn’t get what I wanted and I didn’t understand. I thought I deserved to have more hours than what was on my paycheck. I am still sort of pissed, but nothing effective will come from being negative.

After a long day at work I was able to get my paycheck cashed. After my paycheck was secure in my wallet, I went to the gas station and got gas. I was hungry so I got a hot dog. While I was in the line, I remembered that the Paqui Carolina Reaper Madness “one chip challenge” was to come out on October 1st. I skimmed across the store to see if they had it, but I couldn’t see it. Right as I was about ask the cashier, he opened the register. Ariel was collecting the money when I saw a big red box. The box caught my eye. I walked over to it and saw that it was exactly what I was needing. I picked it up quickly and gave it to the cashier. He seemed to be confused by my excitement. I explained that I was going to make a blog about it. I learned that I need to get my business cards! He wanted me to show him, but didn’t know how to spell my blog name, this is a problem, so now I know that I need to work on those, but either way, I got the damn chip!

I just met my goal on Facebook of likes for the challenge, so that means I will be recording myself eating the hottest chip, ever, I must say I AM SCARED. I’m not that scared, but it is pretty intense. We are talking about the hottest pepper in the world, made into a chip. There is a reason they only sell one at a time. This isn’t a chip to take lightly, but something to genuinely fear. That is why I will respect the chip, as I know it will be my last meal. How does that make you feel? You will be watching me take my own life, let that sink it.

Nah, I am only joking. This challenge is going to hurt, but that is what life is about. But I know if I am going to put myself through hell, you better watch! I will be recording myself eating the chip, and I better see you guys! I don’t know if I am going to make it a Youtube video or just go live on Facebook, but I do have to get a blog out of it. I will have time to think of that, but until then; Enjoy your night!!!!!

I will be eating the chip at 6 p.m. (Central time) but it will be available (most likely) on my blog at 7:30 p.m. This gives me time to get my crap together and let the burn cease. Thanks for all the likes, you guys are awesome

    Tonight is sucky movie Saturday. You might be asking “what is that?” Well I will be telling you in this post. But I will tell you, it is something you will want to do.
      It’s October, which is the month of Halloween. I absolutely love Halloween movies and the holiday itself. I have been practicing my special effects for Ariel and my costumes. But that is only a part of the celebrations. In order to get in the mood, Ariel and I will spend each night watching scary movies. This has been a tradition since we started dating, but there’s one night that we do something different.
      Usually, we just watch regular movies that we like, but on Saturdays we take an adventure on the dark side. This is where we will find the worse movie, ever. We call this ‘Sucky Movie Saturday.’
       This has been a good/bad idea since the start. You can’t say that all low-budget films are horrible, that is why we take the pain for a few hours and watch the films. So far, we have found a few really amazing films, though we have went through hours of unbearable movies.
       One of the best low-class movies was ‘State of Emergency,’ a movie about the zombie apocalypse. I thought it was going to blow, but honestly it was better than most theatrical released films. The movie wasn’t A grade, but if you ever get bored, you should watch it!
       Tonight is the beginning of this tradition and I wanted to ask you to join. You should go out and support low budget films, even if it’s only for one night. I know that I don’t regret doing it, so take a chance and live a little!
     Enjoy your night! I will see you guys again, tomorrow!
