Music speaks to me, to you

This is something I am very passionate about, music. I can’t play anything, heck, I can barely even sing without making someone deaf (trust me, I do not have the natural gift for it). However, I am passionate about it as it is my muse or anchor per say, it can keep me calm and calm me down, this has been proven many times but that’s not the point I was trying to make; the point was that music can speak to me in a way that most people fail to and I don’t think I am the only one that feels that way.

The music people listen to can often reflect their mood, sometimes the tempo or pace, but the lyrics can truly define how we feel. This is often the case for me. That’s the thing most people around me fail to understand, that music is like a key to my soul and true emotions, I don’t know if I’m the only one like this but I don’t think I am.

I guess music often speaks to people as it can change moods drastically and explain what they fail to say, often people feel like they can relate and not feel isolated or lonely as they feel like the singer(s) can understand their pain, happiness, etc. But, you have to remember that the same song can speak to people differently, this can give an insight into the person and sometimes their upbringing.

The reason I am constantly listening to music could be for the fact that I don’t feel like I fit in anywhere so music, much like reading, gives me an alternative world where I can fit in. I’m not saying this because I want pity, I’ve come to terms with this fact and that I am still searching for something that is my special talent, I won’t give up until I find it; that’s for sure.

I don’t have many people who I can discuss things like this about, about music and how it speaks, opinions on it, well, at least not in-depth anyway. This kind of disappoints me as it is one of the things that is powerful to me, it has always helped and I can talk about it for hours.

Recently, however, I have found someone who might share my compassion for music and how it speaks to people, we have suggested songs for each other and quite a few times come out with different meaning. Despite only recently becoming friends, we get along surprisingly well.

I guess, to some up this post, if you know someone who is always listening to music then the songs they listen to might give you an insight into what’s going on in there mind and how they truly feel. They could however just be feeling anti-social or letting it play so pick your opportunities wisely as to when they have personally selected a song and maybe try talking to them, music is a language everyone can understand at least on some level.

Revision, revision, revision…

So, I’m in year ten (British Schooling System) and have recently encountered mock exams, there are a lot of them in such a small period of time which gets coupled with course work, this means that a lot of stress on my part.

It feels so overwhelming, knowing that these are my predictions but I can’t find the want to study and when I do study, I don’t remember anything useful (I say useful because I can remember the things such as there was an odd observer eating chocolate ice cream). This has made me stress a lot and feel over whelmed with too much to do in such a short period of time.

I like my teachers (well, most of them) but they have been putting too much pressure on the mocks and I know I won’t be the only student who feels like this, which is why it is improving my confidence to write this post so that people like me know they’re not alone.

I just need a break I think, and despite having a week off from school it hasn’t helped, it has left me stressed with two mocks within the first three days I go back. I don’t feel myself and I’m not sure if it is reflecting on my writing, however I will continue to upload anyway, but I need a pause button on life or somewhere to go to feel stress free.

I realise I have just ranted and let emotion out but, isn’t that an advantage of having a blog? Being able to express yourself freely with people who understand or at least try to understand how you feel. And knowing you could be helping, or at least reassuring, someone about an issue you have faced or are facing so that they know they are not alone is a great feeling.

But yeah, thanks for taking the time to read my emotional mess and thankyou to those who follow, and enjoy, the majority of my content. Your support and feedback means a lot!

Searching for Rainbows in Rain

A lot of us focus on the negatives in life, the bad things in a bad situation and I must admit that yes, I am a pessimist. It’s how I am. If I see a situation I will think of the negatives first but there’s nothing wrong with that as long as you look at the positives after right? It’s weighing up the pro’s and con’s and thinking rationally.

That may be why, and where, the blog and the inspiration for it came from. My pessimism.

So, this is to remind people to look for the best in a worst situation, look for the rainbow in the rain, despite how hard it may be to find. It’s a good piece of advice (well in my opinion) and I’m definitely not the first person and won’t be the last one to say it but it’s important. There will always be a bright side to a darker situation. It’s the Ying Yang of life.

The rainbow isn’t always glaringly obvious to spot, especially when the rain is hitting you in the face and blinding some of your feelings, thoughts and vision but you have to push through. I know you’re all strong enough to do it and still be the amazing people you are.

The rainbow is out there somewhere, whether the sky is clear or you’re searching for it in the rain you will find it and when you do, maybe, just maybe, things won’t seem too bad with another angle to combat the problem at. Your perspective might change and then another solution will/might become apparent.

Please don’t be scared by what outcome could happen because, if it’s with a person if they leave then they worth weren’t your time (See an earlier post called Know who your friends are for advice on that), if it’s anything else the worse you can get is that you lose something or get rejected but the best is that your bond becomes closer or you gain something and your life improves. Isn’t that always a good thing? 

So, my amazing followers please don’t be afraid to try new things or confront people about things they’ve done they’ve upset you because you all can, you’re all so strong and beautiful!

Like if you liked it, let me know what you thought or if you have any opinions, statements, advice to add-on or anything at all then please comment! Don’t forget to follow my Instagram and Tumblr at darklingfire. Thankyou for reading!

That awkward moment when…

So, being a teenager can be an embarrassing, spot-hating and confusing time and I don’t think life will get any easier when you’re not a teenager but hey, at least most of the spots will go, right?

But, in adulthood or teenage hood there is bound to be them embarrassing moments when you feel so awkward or embarrassed you wished the floor would swallow you up or you could go die in a  hole for the rest of the day.

That led me to thinking about you guys, my readers and blog, that why don’t I share some I have experienced and some I can think might happen later in life or so on. So, here goes nothing-

  1. When you drop your bags content all over the floor in a public place on accidentThis can be hell, especially if you have to go there everyday. I have done this and let me tell you it is embarrassing, I did it at the end of a class and everybody laughed, I could feel my face burning up. One boy, however, who is usually a d*ck helped me despite the mocking he received from his friends. That helped the situation for me.
  2. When your friends parent(s) are shouting at them- This can leave you just staring at the wall or awkwardly milling around in the background somewhere. Suddenly the wall or the floor becomes a lot more interesting.
  3. An awkward conversation with a person you dislike- This can happen at work, in school or anywhere in general. It doesn’t have to be someone you know, take it from a person who doesn’t like many people in real life, but it can still be awkward and that is when you wish small talk wasn’t invented.
  4. Meeting new people- This can be at work, outside in general, school or with friends. This is, for me, an awkward experience as I’m not a people person. This also includes when you meet a friend’s friend for the first time, I think we all know how awkward that can be…
  5. When your phone goes off or starts playing music randomly- The latter of the two is one that not many people might experience (I think?) but it has happened to me numerous times and I played it off like my phone was going off..not that that helped though. It is worse in an environment where phones should be on silent or off, say in school or at work, when it goes of with a message because everyone around you will turn to look at you.
    So, these are some of the many awkward moments I have had, please feel free to share yours in the comments, I would love to read them! Comment experiences, opinions on my blog or whatever you feel like and I’ll respond as soon as I can!Bye for now-
