I don’t recommend falling down the stairs

Last week, I took a tumble down some stairs. Yes while that alone is painful and not fun, taking it down on your knee is much worse. Yes I landed on my knee for each stairs. I have a nice set of bruising going on and while this happened a week ago, I’m still having some issues using my leg/knee normally.

So all of that aside and working on it for eight hours straight a day, it was time to have the Doc look at it. I have never personally done anything this extensive to myself. Unless of course you call breaking my two front teeth (which are fake now, fun fact). Anyway, I went in and she moved my knee around and pushed. Painful but you gotta get through it.

Turns out I over extended my muscle along my knee. Nothing is broke or torn that requires surgery. This is a good thing. However I am not on rest and to stay off my knee and let things mend. I have fluid build up and that is causing more pressure on my knee that it needs. So now I sit and kick back. I am taking it easy but I know that by tomorrow I’m going to be bored out of my mind.

Three days of this. Wish me luck! And lets hope my knee is better too!

Rest in Peace my old friend

Now I’m sure it came as a shock to you (as it did to me) to learn about the death of Robin Williams. I didn’t believe it at first and it still hasn’t quite settled in my stomach and heart that this wonderful man is truly gone from this world. I may not have known him personally but the man was a part of childhood and apart of some great laughs along the way too.

He truly was the funniest man in the world. And his death was not only shocking but the actual events were as well. It’s horrible to hear about the death of anyone but when it’s suicide it seems to take a deeper meaning. It’s truly tragic.

That being said, I really want to take the moment to remember some of my favorite moments from Robin Williams career. Who can forget Mrs. Doubtfire? And lets not rule out the always outward thinking Patch Adams. These movies are truly magical and they are a life-less in and of themselves.

With that being said, I just want to say again Rest in Peace my old friend. The world will not be the same without Robin Williams

Below are a list of some of my favorite quotes from Robin Williams, and I hope they are to you:

“No matter what the people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.” – Robin Williams

“You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.” – Robin Williams
 
“In America they really do mythologise people when they die.” – Robin Williams
 
“Spring is nature’s way of saying ‘Lets party!’ ” – Robin Williams

GISHWHES 2014

I’m unsure if I posted this before but I’m going to get into it for this one. I did something kinda different this first week of August. I had helped people the previous year with items on this list but I wanted to give it a shot myself. I participated in GISHWHES. GISHWHES stands for Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen and we get a list of about 200 items to complete in one week. Each item has a different point value (depending on difficulty). They are either video or image submissions!

Our list of items were just as crazy and inspirational as previous years (i googled previous lists). My team (Time Traveling Yetis) consisted of 15 females (although one was MIA for the entire thing). Our team was able to complete a combined total of 85 items. Insane right? Not really because we were all newbies and wanted to make sure we had a nice pull for the win. I myself completed 22 items of that 85. Go big or go home (family motto).

Now we wont exactly know who won until a couple of months from now. Sucks but hey there’s about 100,000 items/submissions for the judges to go through. And even if my team doesn’t win we have quite a good standing and we honestly kicked some major butt! I am very proud of them and myself. If we do win, it’s a weekend trip to Croatia, Europe to sail on a Pirate ship and to hangout with not only my awesome teammates but with the always amazing Misha Collins. Not bad right?

I guess now it’s waiting game and getting back to what I consider a normal life. That does include a normal sleep schedule (I got about five hours each night). I had a blast and honestly I would recommend to anyone to get in on this awesome scavenger hunt. I’ll keep you posted on the winner!

In the meantime, here are some of the pictures of items we finished! CLICK HERE

How to go about “Saving” Dean Winchester – Supernatural – TV Show

Alright alright! I’ve touched on this in a previous post but honestly I’ve been asked about it a couple of times I want to get things clear here. First of all, if you don’t watch Supernatural, you should. There are a total of 9 seasons to get caught up on before season 10 hits the air in October.

WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD! READ AT OWN RISK!!

Okay so let Me start by saying that we ended season 9 with of course Dean turning into a demon. All of this had been building throughout the whole season and wouldn’t ya know it, Crowley was there to welcome him too.

So now we all take a moment to breathe and wait…til October. During that time those of us who have watched the show since the Pilot and loved it since know that there has to be something to fix Dean. Anytime the guys get into a jam they’re able to fix it. So how do we fix Dean?

 

Here are your options, there are three. I will go into them.

 

1. You kill Demon Dean.

Sure it sounds simple enough, after all it’s what the Winchester’s do. But this is family and we know that Sam was bargaining for Dean’s life at the same time Dean was wakening as a demon. Sam isn’t going to just kill Dean, he’ll try and find a way to same him. And this of course is before another hunter learns that Dean is a demon.

 

2. You continue “Saving People, Hunting Things, The Family Business” and let Dean continue to be a demon while doing it.

So lets say that you can’t find a way to same Dean (I say this is a small thing but hey they’re worked with worse on the show). And you can’t work up the courage to kill Dean. But even though he is acting like a demon, he still wants to do some good. So he just becomes a better hunter right? Hmm maybe we shall have to see.

 

3. You cleanse Dean’s soul.

Now I know this seems a bit odd to say but we’ve touched on this subject before on Supernatural. Lets face it, if it didn’t mean Sam dying, Crowley would’ve been a cured demon at the end of Season 9. And some believe that this is how you can fix Dean, do the same ritual with him as you did with Crowley. The problem that I have with this is that well, Dean didn’t become a demon the same way that Crowley did, he became a demon because of the mark. And that’s why I think he’s going to need a seriously powerful spell to cleanse his soul.

 

I’m in favor of the cleansing his soul part because it means that the Winchester’s would have to trust a witch. But here’s the thing about this that I find would be a good show twist, if the witch wasn’t just a normal witch, but a High Priestess. I have a set up for this, not gonna lie.

If anyone is curious continue reading because I’m going to share it (that’s how much I’ve been thinking about it). And here we go…creative writing….

 

We begin with Sam running into dead ends in ways of trying to save Dean. He has enlisted the help of an unhealthy Castiel. Castiel being weakening by the day because of the borrowed Grace. They have also been trying to follow Dean since he escaped from the Men of Letters, where they were holding him.

They find a string of what appears to be demon kills, fearing that this may be Dean. The only connect is a traveling Freak Show. So naturally they go to talk to the people who are involved in the Freak Show. They meet the woman in charge, a witch by the name of Diana. She has strict rules for the demons and creatures that are in her show, they don’t kill and they live a very different life. But her demons and creatures aren’t normal, they are the except to the Supernatural world. Thus why they are like a family in the Freak Show.

Anyway, they investigate and figure out it’s a former demon that used to be apart of the show years ago. So Sam and Castiel both kill it with the help of Diana. As Sam and Castiel are preparing to leave, they realize that some of the spells that Diana had used were some that they hadn’t encountered before. Castiel takes a moment but figures out she isn’t a normal witch and boom knock on the door and it’s Diana.

She tells the boys she’s a High Priestess, the only one in the world in fact. She the most powerful witch too. Sam begins is suspicious of Diana and the knowledge she seems to have about not only Dean begin a demon but of the borrowed Grace that is slowly killing Castiel. However, before he can figure out if she is on there side of or not, she offers to help Sam save Dean. Castiel wonders how and she says she has a spell that can cleanse a demons soul.

 

And we move on from there. See I told you I’ve thought about it for a long time. And I think it would be a nice change to throw a woman into the mix too. And to see if the boys can really trust a witch given all of the problems they have had before. And just taking things a little bit deeper into the “what if” portion of the Supernatural world. Not saying it’ll happen but hey if it does, all I ask from Robert Singer and Jeremy Carver is a writers credit (not holding my breathe). Agree or disagree I think it would be cool.

No web access!

There comes a time in life when you have to make changes. And sometime they’re for the best and sometimes they just really freaking suck. That being said, I no longer have wifi at my house, I’m forced to travel to find it unless I want to do things on my phone (burn through my battery like crazy now too).

This is less than fun for me, mostly because I burn through gas like it’s going out of style. Now you’re probably wondering how in the world can I not have wifi? Well we were using Verizon but that service began to suck and it just wasn’t worth it anymore. And given that I live in the middle of no where, well our choices are very few. So it’s gone. Ugh I honestly hate it. Even the crappy thing we had was better than nothing.

I even offered to pay for it but in the end that was shot down. I just can’t seem to win lately.

 

On a side note, I want to take a moment to knowledge the death of one of my former teachers, Mr. Scott Hazel. He was the one of the greatest teachers you would and could ever meet in the world today. He was full of joy and he NEVER had a bad day and he was determined to turn yours around if he could. I have very fond memories from High School because of him and all of the fun he brought to everything he did. He lost his battle to a rare form of cancer, his second time around. I can’t imagine the loss for his family because I feel like High School wouldn’t have been the amazing experience it was without him. So…..RIP Mr. Hazel.

So “A” is back? Wait what? – Pretty Little Liars – TV Show Review

Alright alright! Let me first  begin by saying that the title of this isn’t meant to be taken seriously. Hello sarcasm. It can be hard to notice when reading online. I do my best but hey, even I know sometimes it doesn’t come across.

So last night the 100th episode of Pretty Little Liars aired. Yes they made it to 100. And this episode was full of surprises. Alison returned to school. Caleb is back in town. Oh and some hook ups happen aka relationships actually be real relationships.

Anyway, all of that aside the big thing they brought back was that “A” was sending messages. I am literally in awe of some of this. The entire show is about “A” torturing these girls and quite frankly it’s starting to get old. All of the secrets at this point the girls just need to do a book with everything out and then “A” wont have power. It’s probably one of the reasons why I’m behind a few episodes but it’s getting to be no surprise anymore.

However, I keep reading not only on Facebook and Twitter but on articles about how surprised people are. This shouldn’t surprise ANYONE. The entire show is based on this “A” getting after these girls. Now we have a list upon list of suspects and just when you think it’s going to scream off the screen the writers throw someone else into the mix of who it could be. Honestly it’s getting to be quite sad. I’ve read the books series and it’s just funny to see the differences and the loops of storyline being played.

Just really get to the point or start getting some of these “A” dead. Good job taking out Shawna but you’ve got a few more to catch up on. And remember that anyone who was once “A” is never really out of the game. Food for thought…..

Sometimes change is a good thing

Over the past year things have been in full swing of change for me and my family. We had a wedding, my sister’s. We had some lose and some changes in how people live (brother got divorced). We also had a few job changes too. And while all of it seemed a bit too much at once, and it did get to me, all of it worked out in the end.

The best things do come in crazy packages. My sister is happily married and all of it seems to be going pretty damn well. My brother is moving on with his life and taking it one day at a time. He’s realized the most important thing in his life is his three beautiful children and the rest will get played out however it’ll get played out.

As for the job area, I’d been trying for a long time to get into a different area of the store that I worked at. Finally the opportunity was given to me and I took it. It was crazy and quite a change and honestly I had zero training for my new job but it all worked out. I still have trouble but at the end of the day I am doing the best I can. I’m happier and way less stressed in this area than I was in the last.  Before I left I made it clear that the problems would show themselves and after about two months they did. Especially since I’m not there to pick up the slack. And now things are starting to get addressed, not all of them but some. It’s a step in the right direction.

The best part, is that I’m about to go on vacation. A family vacation that I am dying to get started. I have a few more days of work that are going to be long but I can finally kick back under the sun and have some fun in the water. We have a bunch of things planned and all of it is gonna be great. I can just feel it.

As for another change, well lets look at my new WordPress blogging area. You can’t see it on this end but the set up for posting new posts is way different. And it’s a much cleaner set up than the last one. Love it WordPress!
