New Addition to the Apartment – A Live Animal

Ever since I can remember, I have loved animals.

They are such simple creatures, that require only 5 things:

  1.  Food
  2.  Water
  3.   Shelter
  4.   Poop/Pee time
  5.   Love

For this article, I will discuss mostly the love part of the list above.  They ask for love, by wanting to play fetch, or wanting to spend time with you via a walk, or just some simple horsing around in the house.  That’s it.  They don’t really need much more than that, in the way of love.  I think we too are seeking that from a partner, or from our friends, but some people, just get too caught  up in material things, or the “noise” around them, that they forget about the core of what they seek.

Well for me, I try to constantly remind myself, that I am a simple person, and don’t require much.  All I need and want, is simple love from someone or something.  That’s it.  Nothing more, nothing less.  And for this reason, I have decided to get a new addition to the apartment, by the way of a live creature.  And that live creature is a guinea pig.  I do not know at the moment if its a male or female, but whatever it is, I will shower it with love.  Because I know, it will do that for me as well.

This little one will be arriving here tomorrow, late in the afternoon.  So I am anxiously awaiting his/her arrival till then.  Lucky for me, this little one did not cost me a dime, as the person that is giving it to me wants to rehome it, due to a recent move that is need.  So that means I get a cage, lots of food, shavings, and the other usual guinea pig stuff that goes along with it.  I am very thankful for this opportunity, as I have been looking for a little buddy to keep me company, and bounced around ideas of dogs, cats, and other furry little creatures.  But alas, a guinea pig is what eventually dropped into my lap, and I can’t wait to meet him/her.

I will be posting photos of him/her, after he/she gets more comfortable with me in holding it, but if I can, I will try to take some snaps of it in it’s cage, to hold you guys over till then.

This is a first for me, in terms of having a guinea pig.  I have had mounds of hamsters in the past, fish, birds, dogs, cats, and even a rabbit for a short time, but never a guinea pig.  So, it should be interesting, to say the least.  I would love to make some funny videos with it, if I am given the ok from the little one.  That would be hilarious, as I find guinea pigs in general, hilarious little creatures.

So, till then.

Tales of a Serial Procrastinator

I’m back, back again.

It’s funny how something from elementary school (or grade school in some parts of the world) can stick with you well into your 30’s.  I am referring to a time when one of my teachers handed out awards, which I believe were copied sheets of paper, showing a trophy, or something along those lines.  Anyways, I remember being handed a “trophy” that said “The Procrastination Award”.  I was SO excited, to be handed anything that showed I acheived something, but little did I know the meaning, till I got home.

I excitedly showed my mother, who then proceeded to tell me what it truly meant…someone who leaves things to the last minute, pretty much.  Well, that was a shock, to say the least, but to be honest, I don’t think I fully understood this till I got into my adult years.  Sure, I comprehended what my mother told me, I just never really knew the meaning as it pertained to me, because I didn’t think I was THAT bad.  Well…I am. lol

Flash forward to today, and here I am writing a post of being a serial procrastinator, what, maybe 9 months or so after my last post here, even though a TON of stuff has been going on in my life, both good and bad.  Well, I hope now, I am able to shake off that procrastinator label, once and for all.  For me, it takes focus, and I severly lack it.  There are some things that can get me going, but never in a sustained way.  I hope to write in this blog more, and with that, keep me somewhat more accountable to myself, and just see how I am coming along, by the amount of posts that I do.

So the eyes are all on me to produce, whoever knows how many (meaning readers of this article), so in a way, I feel some kind of accountability to you as well, to be consistant with what I am doing here, and what I am sharing about my life.

So sit back, buckle that seatbelt in, because who knows, you might be in for the ride of your lives. lol  I wish I can tell you either way, but as a procrastinator, I don’t even know what the heck I plan on doing later today.



My Take on the “Romanatwood Gilroy Fight”

This is my take on the “Romanatwood Gilroy fight”.

First off, it drives me nuts (I don’t know why) when people call Chase, “Gilroy”.  His first name is Chase, just like Roman’s is Roman.  Ok, got that off my chest.

Anyways, to my knowledge, there hasn’t been any acknowledgement by any of the two that there is any fight between them.  In fact, they have made an effort in past vlogs to poke fun at it, claiming it’s all rumours or whatever.  But, there have been some tell-tale signs that things haven’t been all peachy in the land of Roman Atwood and Chase Gilroy circles.  Let me explain.

In a fairly recent vlog of Chase’s, he mentioned something about feeling good that something of his own creation, is taking off.  He could be referring to his vlog channel, maybe his ever growing games channel, or even his “Howto” channel.  Whatever it was, it seemed that he made a point in letting the viewers know about it, and for long time viewers, that could have been a behind the scenes unofficial jab at Roman, who he was connected to in the past, work-wise.

On Roman’s side, he recently overhauled his site’s “Smile More Store” layout and pics, because of “trademark issues”.  The way I took this was, and correct me if I am wrong, Chase, Veronica (his wife), and maybe even his kids, were in some of the pics, modelling the clothes.  So, to get them out of the picture, he told the viewers it was related to trademarks.  I guess, trademark of “likeness”, him using people that weren’t being paid for it, or weren’t paid in the past for it.  I don’t know.  But again, it sure as heck seems like this, at least to me.

As well, Roman asked his cousin to shoot the pics, whereas in the past, Chase ALWAYS handled all of that for Roman.  So…yeah.  Surprising?  Again, not really, if you have been watching their stuff for a while now.

Going back to Chase Gilroy, if you check out his Twitter account, you will see that he is not following Roman Atwood, and this supposedly is a great buddy of his, yet no.  He is following Brittany (Roman’s girlfriend), who is Veronica’s sister (Veronica remember, is Chase’s wife).  So, not sure what that means, but, it doesn’t look great.

Also, for birthday’s in the past, whether it be for the kids or the grown ups, they both seemed to have attended each other’s stuff, yet for quite a while, you haven’t seen that at all.  So it’s fair to see why the internet is a flood with rumours of Chase Gilroy and Roman Atwood “fighting”.  It sure as heck seems like that, doesn’t it?

This is my whole take on things, and it is something I felt in the earlier parts of watching Roman Atwood’s stuff, and Chase Gilroy’s stuff.  They are both talented in what they do, Roman with in front of the camera stuff, and Chase in the behind the scenes stuff.  Both put in their time and effort to build up the “Romanatwood” pranks channel, yet fully in control of the thing, is Roman, and I don’t think that is fair.  It just seems he nudged Chase out of the picture, and that would really suck if it were the case.

There was a time or two to be fair, where Roman Atwood shouted out the new personal vlogs channel that Chase was starting a while back, and that got Chase quite a bit of new followers for it, but, that is small beans compared with what the Romanatwood channel is worth.  I think Roman should have a nice long sit down with Chase, and get him back in the fold.  Give the man his cut, and start working together again.  It would help both people’s stuff, and it would show how appreciative Roman is to Chase, for all the stuff he did to help bring that channel up.

So, what happened to romanatwood and Chase Gilroy?  Who knows, but I do know one thing for sure, that the internet is talking about it, and both parties, for the sake of their past friendship, and to their viewers, should mend things, and put all this “gilroy and roman fight” to bed, once and for all.

How to Get Motivated – My Take on it

What is motivation.

Well, the definition according to the dictionary is:

the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way

the general desire or willingness of someone to do something.

Let’s look at the first one, “The reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way”.  To find motivation (from negative to positive), you have to have a reason for making a change, to do some different, than what you are currently doing.  So for example, if you want to lose weight, you have to have a reason why it’s like this now, and why you want to change it into a positive.

Most times, it’s for vanity reasons, to look good, either for someone, or for yourself.  Other times, it for health reasons.  Whatever the reason why you want to change, you need the motivation to turn things around.  Which brings me to the second definition of “motivation”, “the general desire or willingness of someone to do something”.

As mentioned, there are different reasons WHY people want to change their current situation, but to do that, you need desire, and in my opinion, more importantly, you need focus.  Something you focus on, that will give you the added energy you need, to get it done.  So, keeping on the topic of weight loss, you might pin up a photo of the body you want to get, and not stop till you get that way.  Or, you might post a pic of a guy or girl you are doing this for, knowing when you meet your goal, that person will be extremely happy with the time and effort you did, to get that way.

To do all of this, motivation in many ways, plays a huge part in it.  But, what things can you use to aid in your goals?  What I mentioned is focus, something at the end of the rainbow, but what tools can you use to get there?  Below are some ideas or suggestions you can use to keep motivated and have the energy you need to get there:

  • coffee or some other stimulant – there is nothing wrong in consuming this in a moderate way.  Having a little extra pep in your step in achieving what you want helps ten fold in some instances, which is a huge boost.
  • music – having good blaring music can give you that jolt that you need, to complete tasks.  At the same time, so can soft music, if that’s your thing.  Either way, music plays a huge part in whatever you do, as it brings out different emotions that you can use, to add fuel to the fire.
  • high quality, healthy food – without the proper fuel, you can not get to the end of the rainbow.  You need to eat good quality foods like vegetables, some fruits, and whatever else fuels your body right.  If you pull all nighters doing whatever you are doing to meet your goals, and chomping on chips and drinking pop, it just won’t help you, period.  Treat your body good, and it will reciprocate.

Those are a few things you can do to get motivated, to do what you want to do in life, or go where you want in life.  There are a lot of “how to get motivated” articles online to help you get to where you want to.  I hope this article moved you a bit closer to your goal in whatever you want to accomplish.  Getting motivated to do something, is not easy, and STAYING THERE, is equally not easy, so it’s really a mind transformation that you have to go through, not just a body one.

Good luck in what you do.

The Power of Roman Atwood (and his vlog)

As some of you guys may know already, I watch Roman Atwood Vlogs on Youtube.  For all of those that don’t even know who the clue Roman Atwood is, Google him to find out more.  But, in a nutshell, he is a prankster, with a great zest for life, in mostly a positive way.  His motto is “Smile More”, and tries to live by that on a day to day basis, as hard as it may be.

At the moment, his personal vlog channel has 3,428,036 subscribers.  This might sound like a lot, but, his “main channel”, which is the one he started first (along with Chase Gilroy and Dennis Roady) and does his pranks on, has 6,985,593 subs.  Even a non-math whiz can see that it’s more than double his personal vlog channel.

Anyways, needless to say, Roman Atwood has a huge following.  And with this, he has quite a bit of power, in what he does, what he says, and so on.  For example, today, he supposedly missed a vlog, after going I believe 650 consecutive days with them, and the response from his “Roman Soldiers” has been pretty overwhelming.

Here are what some of the Roman Soldiers are saying about the missed vlog:

@Ninjabeastxd – No vlog.  Get your paint ball guns ready

@Shake4ndBake – RIP ROMAN

@JerzeYxKinG – I couldn’t enjoy my food today no vlog up

@Roza Hishan – There’s no vlog today.  Hope nothing bad happened.  #bringbackthevlog

As you can see, Mr. Roman Atwood has a rabid following, and with that, wields a lot of power.  Thank goodness he has a good heart, is well-grounded by family and Britney (his girlfriend), and Roman Soldiers to keep him humble.

So, the next time you want a quick pick me up, why not try heading on over to Roman Atwood’s personal vlog channel and Youtube, and watched a vid. or two.  Who knows, you might end up becoming a “Soldier” in the process, as well as pick up an item from the “Smile More Store” ( 😉


Homemade Tooth Pain Remedy – Expanded Version of What I do When I Have a Toothache

In my previous post about my tooth pain, I posted about things that I do to relieve myself of a toothache.  In this post, I will go into more details as to how I overcome (and hopefully will overcome) this huge problem.

Obviously, this is just a “stop gap” solution, but it is something that I am sure you can use to alleviate the pain, till you have a chance to visit a dentist.  The stuff I do are:

1.  Baking Soda.  This has been my saviour through all of this, because before I found out about this from an online post, I was really a wreck.  So, if you are going to reach for something during a “wave of pain” (which I will explain a little more after), you are going to want to reach for this.

What I do is, grab a spoonful of baking soda powder, or however much you want to prepare, and add a bit of water (any temp. will do).   Grab a Q-tip (cotton swab) and mix it around in a small bowl till it makes a paste.  Then with that same Q-tip, grab a chunk of this paste and put it to the affected area in your mouth.  Hold it there for a bit till your saliva mixes in with it, then remove the Q-tip.  Swish the salty solution around the area back and forth, and do this till you feel the solution is watered down a lot by your saliva.  After that, spit it out, and lightly rinse your mouth.

This right here, 9 times out of 10 (ok, 10 out of 10, but I didn’t want to brag or whatever lol), will relieve the tooth pain.

2.  Extra strength Tylenol.  If you do not have access to baking soda, grab an Extra Strength Tylenol.  You will need to let the drug do it’s thing before it kicks in, but depending on the severity of your toothache, it will last you for at least 4 hours or so.   And this is when I took 2 500mg tabs of the stuff, at the height of my tooth pain.

3.  Rubbing your head.  Let me explain.  For me, the tooth pain came in waves.  I would be ok for a little bit, then all of a sudden a shooting pain builds up and shoots for a minute or so, or at least it feels like this, so, what I do, is go to the washroom away from everybody (and other noise around you), and turn off the lights.  Then I start rubbing my head, on the opposite side of where the pain is.  So for me, the pain was all on the left side of my face, and head, so, I would rub the BACK of the opposite side of my head, till the pain subsided.

As an added bonus to this, I would use the other hand to make a “pinching” gesture to the top of my nose, close to my eyebrows.  This is I believe an accupressure move that helps to relieve pain.  These two together is pretty powerful if you don’t have the above two options available.

This is pretty much what I do, and to this day still do, when I get tooth pain.  As I mentioned in my previous post, I believe what I have is an exposed nerve, so that is the way I am going about it, until I have a chance to get a dentist to fix me up.  I will make a video of what I talked about here as well on my personal channel which you guys can check out if you learn stuff better by watching, rather than reading all of this.

Till next time.

Getting Rid of My Toothache – Remedy For a (Most likely) Exposed Nerve

For the past couple of weeks, I had to deal with constant tooth pain.  In times past, a swish of alcohol such as tequila did the trick, but for some reason, this thing is really stubborn.  After some trial and error stuff, and reading up on the internet, it looks like I am dealing with an exposed nerve.

Originally, I thought it was something that came up in the past, which was infection, but my gums are not inflamed, among other things.   So, my own diagnosis is exposed nerve.  Naturally, a remedy for this was needed, because being on pain meds the past couple of weeks, really has thrown my daily routine off.  I wanted to post a lot more posts on my blog here, but because of this, man, it really side-lined me.

So, after trying a few things, I finally found something that works, to an extent.  Baking soda.  There was an article posted on Yahoo, forgot the link for it, but it said, baking soda (in paste form), dabbed onto a cotton swab, and applied to the affected area.  Well, I did just that and it seemed to do the trick.  I did this multiple times each time I brought out the baking soda.

Think of the old remedy people talk about where you swish around salt water for a while.  With this, you are directly hitting the affected area, with a strong dose of baking soda.  Again, this remedy seems to be doing the trick as a stopgap for pain.  I am not sure what the results will be long term, as what I said before, I believe this is an exposed nerve, but we’ll see where it takes us. Naturally if anything happens, good or bad, I will post about it here.

So for now, the old homemade baking soda toothache remedy seems to be the trick.  In the future, I might post about other stuff I see online that might help you, but for now, this is the one I am going with.  Give it a shot as well if you are suffering from tooth pain, caused by an exposed nerve.  Heck, give it a try if you think you have an infected tooth, and see what happens.  It won’t hurt to try.

Good luck.
