Pet Peeves.

I have to write this post because it’s been bugging me for a while now. The “Things that annoy me” list isn’t all that long, but whatever is on it is seriously annoying to me. Here are some of the things I personally find annoying and sometimes irritating.

Musicians with out-of-tune instruments

This is one of my pet peeves because I, myself, am a musician. Nothing irritates me more than my guitar being off-key or out of tune. Tuning instruments in certain ways was used to simplify and make the instrument easier to play. It also adds discipline to how a musician maintains his/her sound and keeps up with the band/orchestra as a whole. A guitarist can definitely play a killer guitar solo with an unorthodox tuning, but only if the rest of the band tunes the instruments in the same unorthodox manner, which renders then instruments “in tune”. There is no escape from maintaining an instrument to keep it in tune for the longest amount of time.

Hypocrites

Ah, the hypocrites. Don’t you find it amusing when someone tells you not to smoke because it’s bad for you, while holding a lit cigarette in their hand? I used this as a rough example, this is literally all coming off the top of my head. Hypocrites are all over the place in modern society. Modern social networking help the hypocrites keep their identities intact by allowing them to be people they aren’t on the web. I mean sure, you’re against racism, but are you really not racist? Why are you leaving hate comments and rude statements on people’s content solely based on race, gender, sexual orientation, etc.? Well, yeah this isn’t your legal name on that account, but it’s still you willingly posting the comments. Damn it, society. Get your shit together.

Clingy People

Clingy people probably win the “Most Annoying Person/Thing” award. Sure thing, man, I’m here to help and I would ask you for help if i ever needed it, but you really don’t have to follow my every single step. I really appreciate that you care and all, but I really don’t need all of the attention. I can live life without you having to check up on me every 10 minutes, reply to my tweets (every single one of them), comment and like all my Facebook posts, or even you being all up in my personal space when we meet in a public place, and please for the love of all that is good and beautiful in this world, don’t ask me to notice your posts on social media. If i was active after your post, I talked to you shortly after I was active, and didn’t notice the post, it’s probably because the post didn’t really get to me (or I genuinely didn’t notice your post, and for that I am sorry). I am not a new-born baby, I am not a little kid learning how to walk. I can get my stuff done alone perfectly, thanks for the effort.

 

Now these were my worst pet peeves. I hope you enjoyed reading my rant, and as always, Stay Awesome and Keep Blogging!

From My Notebook – Part (?) – October 11th, 2015

As the title puts it, I’m taking some of the notes I write on a notebook and I’m posting them here. This blog post isn’t the first one I took from this notebook, but it will be the start of a sequence of blog posts that may or may not be related. I’ll add dates to the blog posts so that you know that I did not spontaneously come up with the idea. Honestly, I almost never come up with an idea quickly. Anyways, this was a long introduction to this post. I hope you enjoy it!


October 11th, 2015.

Okay so no I’m in a new life; university, living on my own, and NEW PEN. (If this ends up on my blog, I am such a loser when it comes to ideas)

I felt the need to express myself, although I don’t feel from who I am (or at least who I believe I am).

This notebook turned from a song book to a book of ideas expressed by me (Captain Obvious). I don’t know how to feel about this.

Now the real deal. Have you ever been in a “fight” with someone you really cared for, and now this friendship is just dust particles, sound waves and memories? I’m sure I have. When you try to make  up for things, it gets worse instead of getting better. According to me previous note (and in this case, blog), I said that being a good person might be the only ticket to heaven when you’re in your own hell. I’m still positive about that. Being a good person will never fail you. It will put you back up and tell you that the fight is worth it, struggling will pay off, and it will always end well.

NEVER FORGET THIS.

BE A GOOD PERSON.

-Chris K.

It’ll pay off.

You try to be the worst person you can be until you realize that your worst is simply too good. Not until you have to face reality does being good hit you in the face.

It’s not fair how the good die young (Scorpions reference). It’s not the physical death you know of. Imagine yourself dying just to lay down in flames.”Wow, I’m a crappy person” and you try to escape it but it’s too late to fix anything. Sometimes being too good doesn’t pay off instantly; it’s probably just the ticket to heaven that you need when you’re in your own hell.

Never underestimate your power to be the best person you can be. It has no limit what so ever. Just be the person you want other people to be with you (except if you wouldn’t mind being flushed down the toilet).

“What am I getting from this?” You’re probably not getting more than a sincere “Thank You”, probably a friendly hug too.

Why do this? Because it is the right thing to do. Because you are human just like every other person in this world.

The feeling you give someone when you help them is probably the best feeling in the world.

Do yourself a favor; help others. It’ll pay off. I promise.

Stay awesome and don’t be a Chris, keep blogging!

On Musical Preferences and Associated Stereotypes

Private Premises

The list of stupid things people say to one another is endless, and throughout my blogging experience, I will try to cover as many of them as I possibly can. Today’s topic is something that irritates me beyond expression – well, everything on that list does, but anyway, you get my point – and that is how people label you according to what music you listen to.

I won’t act all noble and angelic here; I hate hypocrites. So here it is: I used to be one of those people who disliked others because their musical preferences did not match theirs, but now I realise how stupid that is, so I’ve added it to my list.

If there’s one thing everyone should know it’s that no matter what the subject is, not everyone is going to agree with you; there are always other who will have their own opposing views and…

I’m bored

Well im bored again, I’m waiting for my friend to finish playing volleyball. And I fORGOT MY EARPHONES AT HOME HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO BE ENTERTAINED NOW. Well I have people reading my blog and stuff so that’s a thing.

I was supposed to film a youtube video too, but guess who’s a lazy bum and didnt? ME.

I got a new guitar too so that’s also cool.

I feel lonely and alone most of my time but I guess im dealing with it (?) I don’t know. I guess I’m happy at the moment. I dont know what to write about this is literally me being bored and posting a useless blog post about it.

Until next time, I might have an original idea. Stay awesome!

Random 12 AM Thoughts

So I had nothing to do and I don’t feel sleepy at all. I decided to listen to some music while I put together this random post. I’m currently listening to some All Time Low songs because I can relate  to their songs, mainly Somewhere in Neverland,  a lot. At this point in my very short  life, I guess it pretty much puts the past 18 years I’ve been alive in a nutshell.

My graduation ceremony is on Monday. I still can’t believe that I’m done with high school and all the douches there. I’m not too happy though because I’m leaving my closest friend there and this doesn’t feel good at all. But on the bright side, I don’t have to deal with some douchebags who complain about my videos being stupid. I’m better off without their trash talk. If I want to film a video, I’m going to film it and upload it without asking for an opinion.

Other than that, I still have to study for my official exams, and I’m not too excited about that because I just want to start my summer vacation already. I want to go out with friends and stay up all night chatting with new people, discover new places, play some music for people I don’t necessarily know, overall enjoy my vacation before I begin my first year of college. I really don’t want this summer to be a boring and unproductive one like every year.

Let’s talk about more random stuff. The weather is literally going crazy. I don’t know whether to wear a pullover over my t-shirt or just go out without it. Mother Nature is playing us. The temperature two days ago here was 37 degrees Celsius, and I live in a mountain village. THIS IS NOT OKAY.

Damn I just want to get over with all this. Like pronto. On the bright side, I can sleep in and no one would care less because I’m done with regular school schedules for a good 3 months now. At least until I start college. The college I chose is far from home too so that’s a new experience. I’m not leaving Lebanon though, I’m still here. I’m just moving to another district in Lebanon, and stuff.

I think this is my longest blog post at the moment. I usually like to keep it concise. But I really feel like putting some of my thought online to entertain any person out there.

To everyone reading this, I genuinely love you so much it could cut a piece of titanium in half. Peace ❤

Found a New Home

Again and again, women happen to be a certain target in a lot of situations. A lot are hit on purpose in PE, others are hit or kidnapped out there, in our society, because they are taken as ‘vulnerable’.

Thought I’d share the image above with you. Let us spread this, maybe we can save a woman’s dignity.
