New Trends – Just Because Someone Has it – Doesn’t Mean I Have To

You may or may not have heard, seen and witnessed the many individuals whom wait in line at a store to get their hands on the newest trending in technology, fashion or other things and people want to be the first ones to purchase it, when a few months down the road or the year after they still have the same product people wait hours and hours and sometimes days for in line, and bring chairs, tents, blankets and food while they wait, which I find to be very pathetic and a total waste of time. I would utilize my time better like getting on with daily life, priorities and so much more, then having to wait for something in line. I know a lot of companies love that attention and love the money that they receive from their customers. As long as they see that green they make, its all that matters to them and some people fall for the tricks and always come up with new things so people keep on them. However, they won’t see that from me.

The only things I would wait in line for is if I have to use the washroom, if I am waiting to go on a trip to check in at the airport for my trip or whatever the case maybe that is important. Not some gadget, fashion, or whatever it is.

However, I am not one of those individuals who just because other people have to have the newest trends and products, doesn’t mean I have to as well. I can wait for it. I am my own person, and I do not like to copy others and follow people. It is not going to be the end of the world if I do not purchase that product right away. I can get it cheaper and better in months time.

A lot of people tell me why I do not have this and I do not have that, its simple, I am content, happy and satisfied with what I have, and I do not need to try and impress others because I am always up with the new trends. Around the world people do not even have shoes, clothing or when they do is when its ripped up, or anything. what should they say? I have traveled enough to know that and they are living a lot happier, and stress free with smiles on their faces. I have witnessed that. Traveling, reading the world news and seeing it with your own eyes makes you realize a lot of things about life.

Some people should be fortunate enough, and satisfied with what they and we have instead of always wanting more, always being picky about what we want, and waiting in line for a product for days and hours and hours is something that is foolish and outright craziness and does not make any sense to me whatsoever.

I mean okay if it means for you stay in line and if it makes you happy, do it, but think about it. Its foolish. Where is the common sense?

What do you think of that? What is your opinion on this?

The World of Music – What Kind Do You Enjoy?

In my life growing up, I have had the pleasure of listening to so many types of music, especially from my culture, and while traveling to tropical Caribbean destinations. I am into the Armenian, Arabic, Greek, Persian, Lebanese, Bachata, Steel Drums, Merengue, Mariachi, Salsa, Cuban, Reggaeton, Spanish, Latin, Italian, Pop, Alternative, Zumba, Reggae, Fete, Soca, Caribbean Music, Tropical Music, Nature Music, and sometimes I enjoy listening to the 80’s and 90’s to bring back the days of great quality music. I even listen to the 70’s too although I was not around back then, but I did grow up with a lot of different types of music which has been amazing.

Nowadays, I have been listening to a lot of tropical music which makes me feel like I am on the beach with the salt water, the ocean breeze and so much more. Music is a universal language that everybody understands and there are so many types, its countless.

What kind of music do you and your family and friends enjoy? Do you enjoy it on your own, or with people? What gets you in the mood? Do you have days where you listen to one type and another day another type? I am sure for every mood there is music. Would love to hear from you.

Keep Calm and Music on! :)

Feeling Left Out – Worst Feeling Ever

In life one of the worst feeling is about feeling left out and its terrible having to find out friends make plans without you and do not even tell you about it until having to find out after. It is such a terrible feeling to go through and no one should have to go through it.

Sometimes these things happen to open up our eyes about certain people who do not appreciate you for who you are, and these are the things to know where you stand and what to do in future. So, Don’t worry about others who do not appreciate you. The person who comes to your life and does not leave you to the curb and leaves you out to dry is someone to keep in your life.

Have you been through a situation where friends, cousins, or anyone go out without your knowledge, then having to find out about it through pictures, a slip up in a conversation on another gathering, finding out from other sources. It is the crummiest feeling ever and nobody should be subject to those terrible feelings.

A real friend will tell you that they will be hanging out or something and will always involve you, will always ask you if you are available. True friends will never leave you high and dry, they will not keep anything from you, they will not lie to you, they will not use you.

True friends help each other, love each other unconditionally, who enjoys each others presence, who make memories together, who go through thick and thin together, who spend time together, who advise, involve each other in everything and anything in our lives.

I know it is a terrible feeling, but look at it this way, you know where you stand, you know who not to involve in things in your life when you make plans, and you definitely know who not to trust anymore. Choose your circle carefully and do what you feel is right for you. Feeling alone is terrible, but being with the wrong people will make you feel more alone. Keep that in mind. Best wishes to you!

The Dream to Meet Mark Zuckerberg – Founder of Facebook

Recently in the last 10 years or so, social media has been booming and blossoming like wild flowers. It is incredible how social media is such a viral and powerful tool in our lives which many of us use it for our businesses, ourselves, to communicate with friends, family and colleagues, and Mark Zuckerberg made that possible with Facebook. Mark is the founder and creator of the giant social media outlet and now more than a billion users are on the website.

All of a sudden A few weeks ago, as I was sleeping, I had this dream that I had met with Mark Zuckerberg and we teamed up to build another social media and networking outlet called “SocialCore” which went viral in seconds, which then millions of people joined our launched website within the week. I remember in my dream, I had flown to California in San Francisco, then Chicago, New York, Boston, Seattle, Vancouver, Montreal and other places to brand, market and do many interviews with Mark Zuckerberg to Television, YouTube and other media outlets in Newspapers and more. Then it went global to other continents of the world. It was something so incredible. It was quite the exciting dream, that I didn’t want to wake up, and just keep letting it happen.

Now, with all that said, I really want to meet the King of Facebook, and have dinner with him, and discuss about the leading industry of our world, and pick his brain about this awesome trend of social media going on. Mark and I are only a year and 14 days apart.  It is quite amazing to communicate to people across the world and send e-mails, messages, pictures, videos, likes, groups and other things in an instant. Without this industry, I wouldn’t have met most of my friends whom are so close to me now, I would not have had such beautiful and great fans who support me and my blog, and so much more like they are my family which they are part of my family which I am ever so grateful for Facebook and the journey I am going through now and will never stop. Thank you Mark Zuckerberg. I can hug you a thousand, million times. I appreciate it very much.
