Personal

Birthday

It was my Birthday on Tuesday. My parents got me an Armani Ceramica watch. I picked it out as I had been looking for a black watch for a while, I own a silver one but I was looking for more dressy and formal wear one. My mum also knew I was getting a record player for my 21st from my girlfriend, more on that in a second, and she got me the single that was number one on the day I was born. I had never heard of it but the band was D:ream and the song was ‘Things Can Only Get Better’. It’s not bad, not my kind of music but one to keep and is personal to me and one for my collection.

My girlfriend amongst little ‘silly’ presents as she calls them got me clothes and thins that I had previously picked out but she did get me my record player. This record player has not been off since the moment it left the box. My collection is only small at the moment but it is growing. My better pieces are Oasis, Green Day, The Ramones, U2, Plan B, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Smiths, Black Sabbath, Meatloaf, Sammy Davis Jr, Kiss, The Eagles, Guns N’ Roses, and some other records. It has to be one of the best presents I have ever gotten and I couldn’t be happier. I am lucky to have her.

iPhone 6 Plus

2015/01/img_1511.pngAs I sit here typing on my iPhone 6 Plus I have come to realise that either my hands have grown in the last week (very unlikely but not unwelcome) or my hands (but not my eyes) have become use to a bigger phone and have learned how to use it properly (more likely the answer)

I do realise that big phones have existed for a long time now but it’s not just about doing it first it’s about doing it right and I feel Apple have done that. I’m not saying that any other phone is wrong, I personally feel that the Apple phone’s aren’t for everyone, I tend to find that people who use Apple products tend to be more motivated about their carers and tend to want things that work without the risk of bugs and things going wrong, they get this but pay a high price.

Other phones tend to feel cheaper and flimsy and use sub par components but more of them to offer other more ‘fun’ capabilities and offer the performance so the phone can play games and movies that others who don’t want to take life so serious can enjoy all the apps and movies on offer. Apple have a consumer audience, that is for sure but the serious way and still quite corporate way things underlying are done doesn’t fit everyone and that’s fine too.

In all I wish people would stop arguing over what is best, what is best is what is best for that individual. All phones available today can play the latest movies and apps but Apple is best for me because it does what I want, it is a true premium product and to me the 6 plus is the best phone to grace the face of the earth, until next September that is.

Not meaning to start a war or an argument, I hope that this explains where I sit? I’m not a blind Apple follower, it took me a while to decide what to upgrade to from my iPhone 5, I came very close to the blackberry passport or the Xperia Z3 but I went for the 6 plus due simply to a offer bringing it in my price range. I will admit though the Blackberry Passport does look very professional.

Where have all the decent people gone?

Where have all the decent people gone? Seriously everything you do now days seems to be put down or someone else has already done it so why are you talking about it?

Life seems to be about what can I get from that person to further myself but I don’t care what I can do to further that other person. Yes I may not be the smartest person to ever do Law, I may not get a 1st but that doesn’t mean that others have a right to look down their noses at me and treat me like some underling. I work hard, I try my best and frankly that’s all a person can give. If I or any other person achieve something that I or they have worked hard for and are proud to have achieved it why is it that the first thing I hear isn’t a well done or nice going but a oh Bob did it first or Fred did that last year or I never really saw the point in it so its stupid.

People seem hell-bent on making themselves out to be the best and put everyone else down in the process! That doesn’t make you a better person it makes you a parasite, a leech on life and someone who needs exterminating. I use an analogy of someone working out in a gym, why laugh at them and call them weak because they can’t lift what you can, you started off lifting smaller weights than someone else so by your own model of society you are weak and pathetic and fat and a low life. if you give people encouragement and support then they may well reach what you can do one day but if you just put them down you aren’t helping at all.

Same goes for people who pretend they are doing something for you because you are a friend but really just want to use you for something else. For example hey yea come to my party on Friday but can you bring all your DJ equipment and put a playlist together and bring lights and stuff. So I’m not invited to the party you want me to DJ your party well then that will be £300 you knobhead, in fact £600 because I just added the mandatory you are a douchebag delivery charge.

Why cant things be simple? Friends with some one? support what they do you may not like it but it’s important to your friend so support them. Not friends with someone? Then have nothing to do with them, don’t talk to them don’t contact them and leave them the fuck alone just exchange pleasantry remarks like hello if you ever pass each other. Where friends and now you aren’t? Just tell them, sorry but I don’t want to hang out/be your friend whatever but just tell them, everyone knows where they stand and that’s that. No awkward texts from them where you don’t want to talk but they think you are friends and you don’t want to be.

Its puts and end to all this bollocks of putting each other down for no reason just be civil, is it so hard to support someone just because they feel like they have achieved something?
