Disclaimer: I hate to have to smother all of you with my craziness, but please understand this is my journal and I wish to just express myself. Please don't be offended. So this goes to anyone who wants to start "Amen" fights or "Awesome Christians" fights. If you want to read my stuff then don't be surprised about the topics.
Still haven't done the assignment. Oh well, I'm going to look forward to a nice shower and going to bed early. :)
Relaxation all the way. As you all don't know this about me, I strongly dislike homework (only as far as high school goes). So I was supposed to write a summary of an entire chapter in my Tonal Harmony book. But I didn't do it because it's not my Job to teach myself. The only reason behind it was laziness.
I haven't recorded anything in a year already. The only reason keeping me from doing that is because I'm just too lazy and then I get busy. Plus my microphones are broken. I remember when I used to be an active musician, oh those truly were "the days". I remember the impromptu concerts in the park and in the city.
There are no titles so it's like a surprise!
So have you ever run into people (guys) that say women belong at home in the kitchen and they actually believe that? Unfortunately this is the mindset of many males (at least where I live). However they are freshmen, but still that's downright shameful. The question pops up. What if the guy's mother found out what he'd been saying about women?
This is wonderful how the internet can bring us so many good things when used properly. I just love Good Hope FM 94-97. I never listened to anything on the airwaves or streaming radio, and now I do. I had a thought today. I wonder what it would be like to live in South Africa. Of course that would be nice, but there are still some things that need to change.
I was thinking maybe Pretoria or Cape Town. They are such beautiful places. Maybe I could go there for a year or something, it would be great (I think). Here's Good Hope FM 94-97: http://www.goodhopefm.co.za/shows/line-up/
Ah, I love Saturday, I guess it's a day I take for myself (while also contributing to helping the family in any way possible). This will be a short journal (slow day [LOL]). So anyway I wanted to share this with you all, these live streaming South African radio stations:
it's pretty cool. :-)
I feel great tonight. I feel anew almost since I started following Islam. I don't mean to come off as being too religious but I just thought an honest journal was nice. Life is so great and I thank Allah (God) every morning and every night, aside from the daily prayer. Oh how great this new area of life is, how I wish to go on Hajj to Makkah (Mecca).
So anyway things have been going well in school and in my family. So really there's not alot going on aside from two huge grades I need to write. It's not so bad, but I just don't have too much time. This brings me to something I feel very strongly about. Also there will be a few more things listed aside from that.
So there was a time, so there was a place. Now I think people are judging me for something. So there was a conversation, then there was confrontation. Yes, I am trying to become a Muslim, I'm surrendering myself to Islam. I am doing this because it feels right for me. I don't want people to dislike me for that.
I don't think I'll ever be able to participate simply because of school. Obviously I need to answer a question orally when needed or I need to talk to someone. I can respect the people who actually manage to do so, but as for I, I am simply unable to complete this challenge. As important as it is to our community I can't do it.
So anyway my Vega has been doing very well. I've recently removed the resonator as to reduce it's weight and make it more portable. I've since improved the screws that hold in the tuning gears. The only improvement being I've filed down the stripping of the screws. So it's looks and feels more pleasent.
I've been feeling well the past few days, it's so nice. It's so nice to wear my baggy clothes and sandals and listen to music in my downtime. So in a sentence my life has been very relaxed of stress. What I would love to do is just somehow find an easy way to be introduced into Islam and have someone teach me the practice. It would be easier.
It's been a thought I've had for awhile. It seems like something I could be a part of plus it makes clear sense to me. Of course here I am associated with no religion other than basic Bible tied faith. It has dawned on me that I've found the thing I'd like to be a part of. I don't know how everyone would handle it though.
