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.” ~.^


Feature Saturday – 4/18/2015 *Name Change*

Saturday April 18, 2015

So I officially Changed the name of this weekly post from “Songs 4 the Weekends” to “Feature Saturday”. It’s all the same content which will Feature a Person and a Song for the weekend to help inspire others to pursue their dreams. This weekend I have the perfect person and song in mind so without further a due lets get this rolling right with the person First and Song last. I hope you guys enjoy this read and hope the person & song mentioned in this post can inspire you to take the first step forward.

Featured Person of the Weekend is…………………



Background of Nolan James Burke from personal experience. The time I met Nolan I knew him as Monster on XBL(Xbox Live) and what little I did know of him at first was that his friends Bronzwini and Panties were some of my first friend’s going into Call of Duty. I knew by looking at his profile that he was from California and Loved Music as much as he loved Gaming as well as somethings related to the Grim Reaper aka His name now lol. Over the years I knew of his band and how they tried so hard to make it into the music scene which is one of the hardest things to get into that I know of. Nolan and I have been friends for many years now and over those years I have seen him make huge personal achievements from Getting in Shape to making big changes in his life one of which led him to meet his Girlfriend Griimreaperess. Nolan and his girlfriend made a huge step forward in this last year or so not just moving in together but to move to Virginia also. From our little squad group of Bronzwini, Panties, Monster,Me(xZenSurfinGx), Charlie Br0wn, Silica/Finnagan to His current team now to follow his dream which is Team INFINITY or Team INI for short.

Current Dream of Nolan’s – His current dream is one he shares with his team in becoming professional Esports Team. I have been in alot of his team’s Livestream and I can honestly say I’m happy and Proud of my friend Nolan and his team. From what I have seen they are very down to earth group and they show great support in one another and they believe in eachother which is why I fully stand behind my friend Nolan and his team. I wish them the best of luck in chasing down their dream and achieving it together.

In Closing – So in closing I would like anyone who reads this that its never too late to follow your dreams and you can never be to old to dream big.

To Nolan James Burke – I would like my friend Nolan to know that I am very happy and proud to have met him when I did and to see his growth over the years in becoming a great person to have as a friend. I am very honored to Feature him in this post and Happy he found a girl who not only shares his dream but in everything he likes as well. I asked Nolan what kind of info he wanted me to put into this post and all he said was put all the team’s info in this post and that is honorable beyond words so I will honor his request.


THANK YOU Nolan, GriimReaperess, and the rest of TEAM INI for letting me feature Not only my friend but you guys as well.



I choose this song as it not only is inspiring but is also our Secret Calling to our hopes in fulfilling our Dream’s and that its never too late to hear your future calling you from the distance.

Song: Secret Calling  – Artist: I EXIST
