Music

Sounds Like A Melody

I listen to music on average for at least 10 hours a day.

I listen to it playing on the radio while I am working.

I listen to it while I am walking through the city.

I listen to it while I am driving in the car.

Honestly, music is something I am almost addicted to.

Music is pure magic: it puts you asleep, it makes you happy, it helps you get through the tough times. It inspires you, it encourages you, it empowers you.

According to my taste in music which is mostly disco, funk, soul, chill out, old school rap and music from the 80’s my personality is creative, outgoing & headstrong which description I completely agree to.

Often I listen to the same song on repeat for dozen of times, for a couple of days or even months. Some songs never get boring to me. Also I almost always rememeber important moments in my life and song that was playing while something was happening.

When I was younger (especially in elementary school) MTV dictated my taste in music. After school I used to watch videos on TV and I sometimes waited for hours to hear my favorite song playing. Then, I would tape it so I could listen to it later for as long as I would like. In high school I was choosing friends based on their musical preference.

Nowdays I listen to songs that I choose by myself on Youtube. There are many channels with good and relaxing chill out music that I prefer listening to. I even started listening to sounds from the nature- when I am trying to fall I sleep I put sound of the rain on play 🙂 It sounds heavenly beautiful.

I especially love how bass can give more deeper sound to songs. I always adjust it on my Ipod according to the mood I’m in.

It was funny how people in high school used to dress up according to their musical taste- rappers in baggy clothes, darkers in black, those who liked pop music fashinable…

Everyone has his own taste in music, and if you ask me, as long as the music plays, it is fine with me.

Rock and all that jazz 🙂

You Can Do The Math

In my country, these days are starting entrance exams for universities.

In those, among many subjects, students often have to pass math. Since I don’t have fond memories of my math classes and exams, I feel deeply sorry for them.

Math was always my weakest point throughout my educational endeavours. I was good in it in elementary school when we had really good teacher who explained it in, to us young students and kids, understandable manner. On contrary, high school years became my worst nightmare regarding addition, subtraction and all that stuff.

I actually could not find a way how to become good in math- did my performance stem from not practicing it enough or my little brain could not grasp its concepts.

Math was also a big problem for most of my classmates, so I soon came to conclusion that it is just difficult. Probably if it was explained thruogh some real life examples we could connect it with something familiar and it would become easier.

Unfortunately, none of our teachers could do it, they could not explain teaching material well. I also think that some students are better with words, some with art and some with biology and science. I am surely not in the math appreciation club 🙂

In many school systems grades depend on how teacher percieves your effort or in other words how he likes you. In regards to that I have one memorable experience with my high school teacher- I was writing a final exam for a higher grade and although I didn’t obtain enough score for it, my teacher said I deserve a better grade and gave a C to me 🙂

Sometimes, math is difficult, but being hard working and nice also pays off.

Do You Think You’re Brave?

 

Brave people act even when they feel scared.

Brave people know that feeling uncomfortable is a necessity to growth.

Brave people don’t quit or quit only when they see no further progress with continuing.

Being brave is not about the lack of fear, it is about acting despite of it.

Being brave is about caring for your family, going to work, taking care of your health, being responsible, appreciating life.

Being brave is not about manipulation, using other people for your selfish purposes or about self indulgement.

That is also the exact reason why fewer and fewer people are truly brave today. It is easier to follow the path of others, scared of making your own choices and possible mistakes along that way.

The thing is in order to escape the storm you must pass through it first.

Bill Gates put the similar construct in this way -The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

People are not trying to fulfill their drams, they are living with no ideas, they leave it to life to sway them in any direction. People nowdays are not living anymore for something bigger than themselves: they are often on a path to destruction through escaping reality in forms of addictions, excessive shopping or video games.

I know that its sometimes hard to set meaningful goals or to achieve them – but we must do so in order to progress, to evolve, to grow in our imperfect human nature.

Make plans, be courageous, take care of yourself and remember-

 

Fortune comes to the aid of those daring.
