Real Quick!

I just added a new menu to my blog. it’s the Walker Talk Blog. It specifically is designed for discussions about this season of the Walking Dead. If you, or any bloggers you may know are interested in joining the discussion, please swing by there and like, share, and comment on the posts. Appreciate all the support and hope you guys are enjoying what I am trying to put together at the moment. I have to go grocery shopping now so I’ll try to keep in touch on my phone if there are any bloggers wanting to talk. Have a good night!

 

 

And I’m Back!

I’ve been away for a day, and I have slowed down on my posts this last week. I have been having to work some long shifts and been stuck at work constantly. Plus, I’ve been working on my novel Eversoul, as well as, Allen Dread. It has been a very hectic few days, especially from my episodes last week with my body. Just to give you guys an update, I’m fine. I do not have what I thought I had. I just have to watch my diet and drink a lot more water. Anyways, I want to thank all of you here who have been emailing me and messaging me with your concerns. 

Americas_Got_Talent_logo

Last night I got to watch America’s Got Talent with Nadine. I don’t know if there are any other bloggers who watch this show, but we have been watching it for the last two or three years. We always record the new episodes. I really do enjoy watching some of the crazy acts that are out there today. Even if they are the most moronic. I know last night there were two magicians that didn’t really do magic, but their presentation was on point. Plus, adding in a little bit of comedy to the act really helped them to gain my vote. I’m sure if you watch you may know who I’m talking about. Now, there were some very disappointing ones like Ieti (SP) Holy crap! Did this guy bomb his performance or what? It was so bad, Nadine actually had to ask me if I was okay cause I was so embarrassed for the guy. I couldn’t watch or listen. It was almost as bad as a horror movie where you don’t want to watch, but you peak through your finger holes to see what happens. It was a nightmare.

I’m going to say this now, a person’s story should never be the reason you vote for them. There are two acts that are like this on America’s Got Talent,. one is Ieti, he is a marine, who fought in Iraq for six months I believe. If you listen to him, you will definitely know the reason people are voting. HIS FREAKIN’ BACK STORY! I mean, think about it we eliminate  someone with a better talent because this joke had to step in with his military background. (No offense to the military) I have a lot of respect for the guys fighting for my freedom. Thank you so much for your service. I’m just saying the back story is not going to produce a miracle for someone who can’t sing. 

There is also Miguel. I don’t think this is so much his back story, I think it is more his charisma. The women love him, but he just doesn’t have the passion that I’m looking for in an act. I mean, if he totally bombed his act, i wonder how many people would be cheering for him? More than likely all of them, but would he be happy with knowing he is only being recognized for his good looks instead of his talent? I’m sure he doesn’t care as long as he wins, but I don’t know how I would be able to sleep at night knowing that fact about myself.

The-Strain

 

We also had the opportunity to watch The Strain. Okay, this episode last night really woke me up for this show. I actually had chills in a few parts and the ending is making me beg for me. I am extremely excited about the episode on Sunday. If you are missing out on this show, definitely give it a go because it’s an awesome twist to this whole vampire craze going on right now! I don’t want to talk too much about this show because I could only explain it best with spoilers, and I don’t want to take that away from anyone interested in it. I just want to say so far, it’s an amazing show for me. Not as good as The Walking Dead, but it is more than likely going to be up there with The Walking Dead in a few seasons from now.

What am I reading?

I found this book from the blogger who wrote it last week. I haven’t had much time to sit down and read, but so far this book is actually a must for anyone who enjoys Star Wars, ogres, halfogres, and gnomes. There are many more creatures in this book too. It has a lot of space travel and science fiction elements so if you’re into that genre, this is a must have. 

 

The Impact of People

Guess who is finally awake?! Me! 

I had to close at work last night. It was pretty busy. A lot of people coming in to buy the last of the buy one, get one free mixed fruit. I will say, I don’t know if anyone except the people who actually have to cut this stuff up really know how much work is involved in making these bowls. Here’s the recipe: 1/4 of cantaloupe, 1/4 of watermelon, 1/4 of honeydew, 2 pineapple chunks, three red/ white seedless grapes, 2 strawberry slices. This is just for the small mixed fruit. Medium, large, and extra large bowls are double, triple, and quadruple those ingredients. So now that we have the ingredients, we have to forecast these suckers on a sheet of paper. We ended up having to cut almost 100-200 of these bowls a day, excluding the large and x-large. Those were only 8-10 bowls. It can be a rough job, but I think that cutting fruit is the most relaxing part of it. I usually enjoy doing this only because it’s relaxing to just chop away all day.

Anyways, last night I watched the result show to America’s Got Talent with Nadine and I’m extremely happy with a few of the results. They say that everyone has a talent, which in theory is true, but my talent, I would like to think is writing. I can play music too, but it has been so long since I’ve been on a stage or even picked up a guitar, I don’t know if I still have the skill set.

I miss those days. It feels like it was only yesterday I was choking on the smoke in the front row, while I was trying to sing. I also miss my lead guitarist who is currently in Korean. He has always been my best friend since we ran into each other in high school, became music buddies, and now, he will be my best man at my wedding( whenever that may be.) Luke is an awesome guy with a lot of talent, who is serving in the Army, and it’s an honor to know someone like him.

I’d like to say this is the cover of my book. It’s already out. You can find it on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Lulu.com’s websites. I haven’t talked much about it because I’m not wanting to use this blog as an advertising tool. I just know I’ve had a few people emailing me about this “Book” I have lingering in the digital world.

I know I don’t talk much about Nadine, but I have to say she is an amazing woman. She keeps my spirits up when I’m down. She supports me in whatever venture I want to take in my life. We’ve been together for four wonderful years, yes we have had those few fights, but we always pull out of it. There hasn’t been a day, where I couldn’t see myself not being with her. I remember meeting her in a pizza parlor when I was performing in a band. I didn’t want to go out that night because I was just going through some stupid crap in my head. My buddy Luke convinced me though. I headed out to the pizza place with my drummer, Garrett, at the time (We’ll get to him in another post.) I arrived there and saw Nadine sitting with her aunt and her cousin. (I knew her aunt and cousin so I was texting them throughout the whole night.)

Honestly, it’s tough to say exactly what was going through my head at that moment, I just knew that I wanted to know this girl. I wanted to be able to hold her hand, or at least have a nice conversation with her. I remember it took a while for me to get the courage to talk to her. I was a bit of a shy guy. I actually thought she was more into Garrett because they were talking a decent amount. I think I told her about that and she said “Um no, he is way too young.” Anyways, I performed that night, I met Nadine, and asked her out on a date. 

There’s many things that happen in life that you don’t understand why. Sometimes it could be the death of a family member, or simply running into a new best friend that has had a huge impact on your life. I’ve also come to realize that for some reason we live in a very small world, where everyone seems to connect on different levels. If I hadn’t of met Luke and Nadine, I don’t know where I would be at right now. 

I met Luke in high school, we created a band, he knew Nadine’s aunt and cousin, I met Nadine, and somehow this has been the longest lasting relationship I have ever had. Is there a higher being that pulls everyone together for a reason, or is our life written spontaneously as we live it? I don’t know which is true, but I like to think that my life is being written by me, not by someone else. I don’t want to shoot down anyone’s theories, but we make up our own future, our own dreams, and our own destiny. That is the beauty of being alive, the old and the new.
