Tuesday Update – 4/28/2015


Hey Everyone,

That’s right its your Tuesday Update Coming at you on time and up front(WTF?!?!). That’s right up front, meaning you will always get the real me being personal,Honest, and Humble because that’s what you all deserve and that’s been my aim since day one.

Without further a due, Let’s Get started.

Gaming Update – So This week I have some things recorded for you and will be released after tomorrow. I am getting an actual microphone tomorrow so everything will be better. The next Tuesday Update will be in May and I have another let’s play game series coming out next month in May which will be The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. I will be doing more videos as time goes on and will get schedules ready for all you very soon.

Streaming – I plan on doing way more streaming from my PS4 and I will get a streaming schedule ready for all you. So you all will have a much chance of knowing what day and which times I will be streaming. So stay tuned I plan on streaming alot of games and it’s going to be amazing, fun times ahead.

Blogging – I love writing everything for you guys so far and that love grows everyday so I will be doing more and I plan on adding a new Scheduled Daily Post so then you all will have 3 Daily Post to look forward to. I can’t wait to share some new things with you all because I plan on writing a story and I want to involve all you in the story process.

Brand – I plan on starting a fundraiser once the brand get’s more attention and grows more. I have a few T-shirt designs I can’t wait to share with you all as well as a T-Shirt series that will amazing and I can’t wait to share the idea with you all. So go out there and help grow the LotusFamily brand because We are all family here ^.^

Other New’s – I am very excited my Fiancee Candi, is starting school next fall for photography and I am very proud of her for everything she has done for us as well as for taking steps toward her dream. Expect another Very Special Feature in the future with her because it will be an amazing piece and it’s very inspiring and life changing stories that make some of you see what I see in her everyday.

Ok now I want to share something with all of you that I want to leave you all inspired to be a better person and to always keep at it even in the hard times.

Story Time – So one of my sister’s is having a birthday coming up soon and I talked to my father last night. He informed me that he had recently got in touch with Kelsey and had made plan’s to see her on her birthday as well as treat her to a nice dinner. When I talked to him and he told me that felt happiness for him, I also felt amazed because it’s a changing point for him and show’s that he still want’s to become a better person. Which is a great thing knowing one of his brother’s that just past away awhile ago had a hard time moving forward and letting go of the hatred.

I told my dad last night that it’s great he’s trying to reconnect with my sister again and I just encourage him that he was doing the right thing and it’s inspiring because I have told him before plenty of times that it’s never to late to change your life in making it better and that it’s never to late reconnect with someone you love.

Now I don’t think I had that much influence but I would like to think that he started believing in himself and start believing in change by seeing me trying hard to become a better person.

I love everyone I have in my life and if I can help them become a better person just by showing them, well then I know we can all make a difference even if it’s a small one because that small change could someday become a big change that you make in this world.

Remember Your Scar’s can turn into Beauty if you believe it can.

Very Special Feature – 4/27/2015

Very Special Feature

Author: Thomas Thayer aka iHawku

Hello Lotus Familie,

Welcome to a very special feature that I planned for a couple/Friends I know. I had planned this for Saturday and for reason I explained in a earlier post I didn’t get it done so I Decided to do it now and I hope everyone likes it as well as the 2 people I am featuring in it as well.

So without Further a due, I give you the very first special edition of our Feature’s. Hope you all enjoy this as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Jen Collins & Kirti Patel


In this edition, I am happy to be featuring a very inspiring couple as well as a great friends.

I have known Kirti Patel since around middle school/High school. For everyone that knows him, he is a very great friend to have as he supports and helps to fullest to everyone he consider’s his friend. I have to be honest I don’t know much of Jen Collins because unlike most people, I haven’t kept in touch with Kirti and I wish I did because from everything I read about Jen is that she’s an amazing person and helps out everyone she meets. I feel horrible about that because Kirti is a great guy who has found a great woman like Jen Collins who Kirti now says she is his everything, she is the love of his life.

Everyone’s comments about them are so positive and so strong that they, Themselves have inspired many out there that true love is real. In true love is loving someone unconditionally and giving each other your whole heart in return for their’s. That is what exactly what Jen Collins & Kirti Patel have with each other and I for one knows what that feel’s like since I to have found the love of my life. I know what it feels like and it’s great to see others like Jen & Kirti find that true love to inspire others to go out there and find it.

What everyone who read’s this might not know though is Jen Collins was recently diagnosed with myeloid leukemia at age 25. She just recently this month got done with her first round of chemotherapy and might need a bone marrow transplant. My friend Kirti has been by her side every step of the way through all of this and I can’t even imagine how hard this has been for both Jen & Kirti. I have been trying to find ways to help them the best way I can but it’s hard because I am between jobs and I live a couple hours away from them. So I have been posting everything I can to help them and that’s pretty much everything I can do for such a strong couple that I know.

I call them a strong couple for the fact that neither of them have let the situation to get them both down and both have been very positive on the whole thing because trust me when I say it could be very easy for anyone to become very depressed and I know some people have become very depressed with minor situations and what Jen & Kirti are going through is a MAJOR situation.

So I wanted to make this post very special for them as I want to help them stay positive and that all of us in my family are behind them every step of the way.

If anyone would like to help, they have a fundraiser going since Jen has not been to work for almost a whole month and they could really use the help from everyone. So check out the link below, you won’t regret it and share it around if you would as a request from me. Here is the link ——>

So Jen Collins & Kirti Patel, this is for both of you. Who inspire us that true love is real and who inspire to always be strong because you never what life will throw at you.

——————So without further a due, Here’s a Song that should inspire everyone who reads this and I hope it Inspires Jen Collins & Kirti Patel to keep the positive vibe up and that I am truly happy to be standing behind such great people.

Song: I Caught Fire     Artist: The Used

In Closing…….

I would like to end this on the very important message that I want to Inspire you all with. Life is too Short, Never let go of the ones you love because you never know when your last moment with them is coming.

iHawku saying “Have a great day today and Please hug your loved ones & Never let them go. Be safe out there Family. I will catch you all the next time we visit.” ~.^

Sorry 2 all my Lotus Familie

I am truly sorry….

I didn’t get a Saturday Feature done this weekend. I got caught up in trying to promote myself further. I did a live stream and then totally lost track of time and then ended up forgetting all together and I wanted to do something very special for a friend of mine who’s girlfriend is going through treatment for Leukemia and going through some songs to try to find something that both of them will really like and I think I found one but you guys won’t know until later when I write the post.

So anyways I want to say sorry to everyone who supports me and looks at all my blog post.


In Closing….

I am sorry and hope you all forgive me. On Friday, I was kind of discouraged because I work hard for this and started alittle bit after my friend did and I forgot the golden rule of an business in life and that is to not worry what others are doing and not to focus on how well others are doing and how bad your doing because going down that path only keeps making things worst for you and I forgot that this weekend.

This is very hard for me to admit to everyone cause I try to be so positive and I kind of fell in a dark hole this weekend but with the help of the love of my life Candi and some friends. That I just have to keep at it and not worry what everyone else is doing because it’s hard to climb out of that hole once you fall down into it.

So this the first sight of me being at my most personal and I always want to be honest and humble to all of you that support me and Thanks for sticking with me. I appreciate it everyone from the bottom of my heart.

iHawku saying “Have a great morning and hope you all a wonderful week. Be safe my family.”

Weekend Edition – Finding Your Readers Plus Good Reads and Writing Tips

Amazing post. I am so Inspired and Hopefully someday soon I will have a much bigger audience. I am learning about what it means to be a blogger and a writer and I can’t until I see many people inspired by what I write.

Live to Write - Write to Live

So Many Fish in the Sea, So Many Readers in the World

wooded roadWriting is an intrinsically challenging task. To do it well you must corral and harness many different parts of your intellect and spirit. You must learn to manage the diverse elements of your vision, imagination, and craft so that they move in tandem, pulling your story forward. The process requires varying degrees of earned skill, innate intuition, and stubborn stamina.

If, in addition to getting the words on the page, you also hope to have others read those words, you introduce an entirely new layer of complexity to your literary endeavors. In essence, you invite strangers to collaborate in your creative process. Because, make no mistake, crafting your story with a reader in mind (even an as yet unknown reader) changes both the writing experience and its outcome. As Samuel Johnson said, “A writer only begins a book…

Personal Blog #2 – Down but not Out!!!!!!

Hello All my #LotusFamilie

How are all you doing today??

I for one, woke up with sick but luckily it’s only a cold. I am be down but not Out!!!!

On these types of day’s, I remind myself all the time’s I have been sick and/or when a family member of mine has been sick and I have a few stories to share with all of you ~.^

Personal Story #2 – One time in my Childhood.

Now I know some of you may be asking why is this one titled number 2 and that’s because I have already told my first personal story in another post titled “Behind the Person” so go check that one out for the first of many stories.

We start this story with the setting, it’s Fall time in Canby, Oregon and I have a sever cold or flu like illness. My mother Christina, has just called my school to report that I would not be in today for the account of being sick. My mother also worked for the Canby Cable company at the time that was located next to if not behind the local 7/11 at the time and she was looking through the pay per view movies trying to find me a suitable movie to watch while she went to the store to get me some soup, gatorade, and medicine. I remember we got to a movie called Free Willy 2 and I light up like a Christmas tree because of the fact that I loved Free willy 1 and could not wait to watch it. So my mother went off to the store and as I laid there watching one of my favorite movie series I couldn’t help but smile in thinking that this was one of those mother and son moment’s that my sister wasn’t apart of (LOL).

It was a truly touching moment that I can think back to that my sister was not apart of and that it was one of those rare moment’s of one on one time where it was just my mother and I because soon after that it wasn’t long before my parent’s got a divorce. When they got a divorce, my sister got ever more attention than I did but this memory, of this day is one that makes me smile because it’s a moment between a mother and her son.

Personal Story #3 – Taking Care of a Parent.

This Next story involves my father and I. It’s one of those stories that doesn’t show any impact but yet can show unconditional love to a parent you hold deep in your heart.

So moving on down the line, we find ourselves in my high school years and this story takes place at a time after my father getting remarried. My Mother and Sister (Kelsey) move somewhere south of Canby but still in Oregon in a small town called Scio.

We start this story on the weekend and my step mother Lori, Has gone to see her parent’s for the weekend and my father is sick in bed. My step sister’s are hanging out with their friends and I am at home just being lazy, watching tv. I remember my father Tim, asking me into his room only to find out that he wants more Gatorade. So I go to the fridge and pour him some more but quickly realize that this is the last glass of it because the bottle is now empty. I walked back into his room to hand him the drink and I asked him to spot me a $20 dollar’s. When he gave it to me, I proceeded to begin my walk to the store and I remember when I got to the store that the only Gatorade to get was Fruit Punch and I also grabbed some chicken noodle soup, CHUNKY. I also remember walking up the street alittle bit from the store to McDonald’s and grabbing a few cheeseburgers and heading home. On my way home, I walked around giving my step sisters some of the burgers I had got and making my way back home. When I got home, you could probably guess that I did make the soup for my dad and that’s about one time I felt proud of myself because through out my high school year’s I wasn’t proud of myself and I didn’t have much confidence at all in high school. In high school I wore alot of different mask’s to hide who I truly was and made up lies to hide the pain.

But anyways we will end story time here as my mind is blanking out on words and I am feeling tired lol.

In Conclusion – I wanted to tell these stories not only because they are of when I or someone else was sick but to help Some parents and children of parents that It’s Never Too late to Change how things are now and you can always find a way to reconnect with the ones you love but also keep in mind to not expect or want anything in return to just do it for unconditional love because you never know how the other person is going to react. All you can control is yourself and if you don’t keep high expectations then you can’t get hurt as bad and you can feel better knowing that you’re trying to change and be better because if your not trying then you’re not living.

Tuesday Update – 4/21/2015

Hello #LotusFamilie

I am iHawku, here to bring you a Tuesday Update for 4/21/2015 that you can only find here ~.^

Feeling Refreshed and Renewed……

Today, I am feeling refreshed and renewed because yesterday was one of my first long streams I have ever done. It made me feel great and I am feeling more & more comfortable everyday and with that includes feeling better about editing and making videos as well.

I know I have not been uploading daily but I think now I’m doing better with it and I feel more confident about doing this and I do owe it to my fiancee and the rest of my #LotusFamilie that I consist of Family, Friends and Fans.

I know I just started this Lotus Familie but I wanted to start a brand that would be focused towards all those who believe in me and support me and stand behind me. I made it because I honor family and peace. Family never has to be blood related but rather I think of family of those deep bonds we hold so dearly to us and that’s what this brand is all about.

The Brand #LotusFamilie isn’t just about me but all of us and I consider anyone who read’s these to be apart of this family and apart of me which I honor every single day will honor it every day you all support me.

I will always aim to be a better and greater person and that growth will never stop because to stop growing is to stop living and I love life and all it’s beauty. There may be negative forces in the world and I can’t stop all of that but I can inspire and bring a little ounce of positive force to everyone I can reach and to everyone who are looking for it.

Update on Current State of Content:

I happy to announce that I am working on video’s to bring you all daily and will do a better job of bring content to you all daily.

As we speak, I am rendering a video right now but my computer sucks at rendering lol so it take 2 hours per video to render at 720p and if anyone wants to help me out I can always setup a donation link but that would be all up to you guys so please down below tell me what you guys are hoping to see and if you have anything else you want to say I welcome and encourage to hear from all of you.

Thank You all #LotusFamilie for reading and as always…….

iHawku saying ” Have a Wonderful Night and I will see you later.” ^.^

Can I have your Opinion?????

Hey Guy’s and Gal’s,

It’s iHawku here with a new post with some fresh idea’s I would like to bounce off all you and gain your feed back on if you would watch something like the idea’s I’m about to share with you and/or read any of the upcoming idea’s I have to help me get a better understanding of you the reader/viewer.

I would like to THANK YOU in advance because without you guy’s and gal’s reading this I would probably lose the motivation to do this, to chase after my dream’s and I am very honored to have all the people who have stuck with me. ^.^

Idea’s I have to do for Youtube and for my Post for all you to read.

1. Father/Daughter – This is an Idea I have had for a long time but I can’t make a Youtube video about it yet as I still need a good video camera to capture a great quality video but this Idea is a series about being a Father and the joy’s that comes with being a father. With teen mom people see all what mothers go through but what about us fathers, some of us go through alot for the sake of our families. We need some more programs that inspire more males who are about to be fathers and to help guide them into fatherhood and what to expect and not expect out of the mother of our child’s. I believe I can help inspire newly found fathers find their way and find the strength they need to carry on even in the toughest of times.

Level Up – This is a weekend talk show I was thinking of doing when I can get a video camera. Where it will inspire and brighten everyone who watch with fun light hearted topics and doing fun challenges with special guest. I have wanted to do this idea for the longest time and would like to know what you guys think on the matter.

Gamer’s Cookbook – A cooking show idea I had inspired by many that is focused to help out gamers or busy people make simple yet delicious healthy inspired meals in half the time with all the prep work done a day ahead of time and finishing up the meal the next leaving you the busy person in mind less stress and less worry about how your going to get tonights dinner done and in a healthy fashion.

Those are just a few idea’s I have and would really like everyones input so please Share this post with your friend’s and leave a comment I would be honored to hear what you have to say and as always.
