This Prompt (Angry) was posted on my birthday (June 1st). Which I thought was a great word to start with. 


I’m not an angry man….more frustrated than angry. However it’s effects are one in the same. The end result always leaves you feeling bad.

I’m one of these people who buries his anger deep. Any annoyances or problems get thrown on the landfill of stuff in my head. Till a pocket of it creeps its way up to a week spot within my head and causes a meltdown (or as I call it a ‘little wobble’). I never do an outburst of anger or show anger in any way. To be honest I mainly take it out on myself first through feeling pretty bad for myself and then it slowly creeps down to my family who basically have to deal with me being very pissed off and slightly argumentitve, but they may tell you differently.

So how do I vent the anger? Mainly through music, playing the guitar helps deal with and settle down anything that getting on my nerves. In actual fact with me, music is an integral part of settling any my emotions or problems when things get on top of me. Music is a great way to escape from one’s problems. You can stick an album on, or a playlist…as the youth’s would do nowadays and escape to different world and forget them for a while, and once the album finishes or your ready to return back to normality. You can return feeling a little better and also deal with what was troubling you originally.

Anger can be such a personal thing. one person’s tiny irritation is another persons raging meltdown, but if you can find that one thing that helps ease those feelings, use it as much as possible. We live in a world full of too much anger already. Anger towards someones race, sexuality, nationality, political feelings. at the end of the day we are all Human, no real difference between me or the person you next walk past. treat each other with peace and a smile and they will return the favour back.

Episode 2 – I Have A Cunning plan?

Okay, it’s been too long. Well, 2 weeks in fact!! But for this blog to work I have to write stuff….who’d of thought it!?

To say my blog launch was a rousing success is stretching it a little too far, but I know it’s something that going to take time to get started. But since that fateful first post, I’ve actually been quite positive about the whole blog. But the key now is to try and continue this, so much so I’ve been on an epic quest to find what I should write about. I’ve also got one or two ideas for articles and topics, that I think might be pretty good. With a notepad equipped with my +2 Charm/Charisma enchanted pen, I’ve been writing these ideas down.

As you can see my DW note pad has been a very useful companion, ready at a moment’s notice, until I realise I forgot to bring a pen with me (cue audible expletives)!!

I don’t want this blog to just be all about me. Obviously from time to time it’s going to happen, but I want it to be about my interests and also discovering new things too. (this is where you, the reader can involve yourself).

Currently I have two ideas that I want to work on.

Music playlist – Each week I will review a Band and discuss what I thought about the songs. in turn I will also create a playlist via Spotify (hilariously called ‘Jaylist’) of a selection of songs I liked from that week’s selected Band. Great thing about this is I will discover new music and build upon my eclectic musical taste that I already have, and you can involve yourself too by suggesting something to review.

Book Review – Unfortunately I don’t read as much now as I did when I was younger, and I want to try and correct that by reading as many books as possible this year. Currently my book reading for this year totals Zero. as one of my goals this year i want to have read 50 (Amendment – 50 is a long stretch, this is proof that maths has never been my strong point – Thanks pocketmonkeypete for informing me 😉 )  books by the 31st December 2016, this will include audio books too. a long shot to reach 50(-ish) but i’m going to give it a bloody good go! Plan is to give my opinion about said book and possibly open it up to discussion….but i haven’t thought that part out yet!! 😛

Other ideas include reviews of games, tv shows, and movies, which i will be ironing out over the next few days.

The last thing I will be sorting is my writing skill which I’ve never been that great at. Don’t get me wrong I can write (it’s pretty essential when you’re a software tester), but personally writing is a totally different, as you need to write to bring out my personality and at the same time make sense grammatically.

So there you have it, Post 2. It came and went so fast, Onwards to Post 3, i suppose.

As always drop me a comment with a request on what book or band i should try out. And give me a tip or two with this whole blogging thing!

Till next time people…..stay classy 😉
