Week 137: Regulation.

So there are certain rules to what I was talking about last week. I don't always abide by them. Sometimes I speak my mind when I shouldn't, that's normally down to reaction more than anything else. Sometimes we act without thinking. I will normally think before I act, but not always. I'm sure you've done it too. I look the way certain friends talk to one another and I think about their individual connections with one another. I try and guess how long they may have known each other, what memories they share and what they may have been through together to act in the way they do. I'm never normally right, but it's something positive to think about. Yes, there are rules and regulations set out for socialising, but not all of them are there is be abided by. Some are meant to be bent. Some rules are there to be challenged.

"Sometimes you put walls up not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down."

Some food for thought, I think.

Friends stick with you through everything, and are always there to lend a helping hand. The oldest of friends will even help you when you think you don't need help, so just be appreciative of it and let them in.

Week 136: Reputation.

Keeping up a good reputation is hard. You have to please everyone apart from yourself. I tend to just carry on doing what I want to do in the way I want to do it. I try not to be ambiguous about anything so people can actually understand why I do things, but sometimes I don't come across in the way I think I am. I believe you must keep a strong personality, it makes an impact on people. Not so strong that it offends them, but when people speak to you, you must speak back, give advice and don't just blend back into the crowd. Put your opinion forward in a way that suits the situation. There is no use in being overly blunt, just sculpt the conversation to get your opinion across and people will be more likely to listen. Make a reputation for yourself, promote your way of thinking.


Another band promo shoot. Skies in Motion. I've made a bit of a reputation for myself around bands in the UK. I offer my services to anyone who needs them, keeping music alive has always been one of my biggest interests.

Week 135: Blank.

Not much to say this week apart from being completely unmotivated. I guess that's okay every once in a while right? It works well as a break and gives me a chances to relax my brain.


More band promotion, this is for a band that have a lot in the pipelines at the moment. You may recognise some of the band members. Keep an eye pealed.

Week 134: Rumours.

So I hear things from certain people and I don't know whether I should believe it or not. Sometimes the things people say are fabricated, but sometimes they are exaggerated and some of the time they are telling the truth completely. I hear a lot of rumours about other people I know, I give people the benefit of the doubt and believe it until it's proven wrong. It's a strange phenomenon, the act of lying, I guess I'll just go along with what most people say but always mark each statement with suspicion. It's a way to get paranoid easily, but it's also a way to protect yourself. There are friends I don't trust, because I know that they are self centred and will do anything to make themselves look better than anyone else. Yes, I'm not a perfect person, but I know more about certain things than people may know. I know more secrets than I let on, and I won't let on. Just for the sake of argument.

Thanks for reading.

From the 9/11/2011 memorial collection. It is obvious what this guy is representing. Questions I relate this photograph to are: Who believes what? and who is telling the truth? It is very relevant to the way I have been feeling this week. I hear rumours, I chose which rumours to believe and I act on it.
