Just Scream

Ever felt so angry that you feel like you don’t have anyone to talk to? Ever felt so angry that you want to take your anger out on something or someone? Ever felt so miserable that you feel like you just can’t take it anymore? Ever felt so worthless? So destroyed? So distraught? Then step out into the world and scream.

Ever felt like your voice can’t be heard? Keeping so much frustration inside of you but don’t have the encouragement to speak out? Ever feel like your voice wouldn’t matter to anyone? Well that’s okay. Step out into the world and scream.

You need to let everyone know how you’re feeling inside. You must let your voice be heard one way or another. Everyone has voice, and each one matters. If you don’t let your voice be heard by words, then that’s okay. Step out into the world and scream.

Why does screaming help? Why does a simple scream help calms a person down? It’s actually simple. Screaming will let your inner emotions be released to the world. Once you stand up and scream, you’ll feel empty inside, but in a good way.

You’ll definitely feel the difference once you let out your scream. You’ll feel like you’ve been heard. You’ll feel like your emotions have been understood. You’ll just feel like a new person because as you’re screaming, you’re letting out everything that made you feel like crap. All of the negativity, gone in just a matter of seconds.

JUST STAND UP AND SCREAM!

Africa

Africa, the world’s second largest and second most populous continent! Boy it would be a nice trip to visit Africa. So many islands to see, so many animals to see, just so many amazing views to witness in person. I’ve always had an interest in Africa after finding out the continent’s features a large diversity of ethnicities, culture, and language. The population as well is an impressive establishment to know about Africa. I believe there would be so much great people to spend time with in Africa and they would welcome you with open arms any time you visit there.

Being a big shopper, the first town I would visit is Marrakesh. Marrakesh features so many shopping places that showcases so much of their history’s culture. So many antiques to see that a buyer can’t pass up on, I know it would be hard for me to pass on. Along with some local music performances, this town is pretty much the entertainment aspect of Africa. Their gardens are also worth checking out. You can witness nice gardens such as the Majorelle Garden, the Menara Gardens, the El Badi Palace, and much more. Overall, Marrakesh would be a great town to check out.

Another place I would like to check out is Cairo. Cairo features almost everything you’d like to know about the Egyptian culture. From the looks of it, Cairo has some amazing looking pyramids to check out and their fortress looks astonishing. One building I definitely want to check out in person is the Mosque of Muhammad Ali. That place just looks incredible! The building was created in memory of Muhammad Ali’s oldest son, Tusun Pasha, who died in 1816. This building is the one of the main tourist attractions in Cairo and can be seen directly when approaching Cairo from any direction. The Giza Pyramid Complex is something in awe to see in person. This place features the three Great Pyramids: Khufu/Cheops, Khafre/Chephren, and Menkaure. These pyramids are actually listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the World during the Hellenistic times! Pretty cool! If you’re looking for some interesting Egyptian history, Cairo is the place to check out.

Last but certainly not least, Cape Town! The capital of South Africa, Cape Town is a great places for amazing mountain views. This town just looks so beautiful, from its mountain views to ocean views. Hikers would love it here. I’m not much of an hiker myself but whenever I do show up to Cape Town, I wouldn’t resist climbing on some of their mountains. Table Mountain National Park looks like it has an mountaintop that can’t be missed. Standing on top of that mountain would feel like you’re on top of the world. The Cape of Good Hope looks amazing too especially with its view of the ocean. Located on the Atlantic coast of the Cape Peninsula in South Africa, this place is the southern tip of Africa. Lastly, Cape Point is a great place to view the ocean as well. Along with an 1800s lighthouse, Cape Point features peaks that are in awe to see in person. Once you walk along those peaks and witness the views of the ocean, you’ll feel like you wouldn’t want to leave.

Africa is just an astonishing continent that I would love to visit in the future. So much cultures, so much history, and a big population. I recommend any traveler to check out Africa and to witness its glory in persons. That’s a trip I sure wouldn’t miss!

 

The Love of Writing

Writing is a special kind of art. An art that requires you to have a good sense of creativity in your mind. An art that displays your own words in a more impactful matter. Writing can be an amazing gift to anyone and it’s a great way to explore your mind. Your inner thoughts are to be expressed through your own words in your own way. Writing is a great tool for showing the world what’s inside your own world. If you ask me, it’s the best hobby to ever have.

Blogs, notebooks, journals, poems, and even screenwriting are some examples of showing the world your love of writing. Any chance you get to show your writing skills is something you can’t pass up. I enjoy reading books (sometimes) and mostly I enjoy reading other people’s blogs and poems because they’re demonstrating their passions for writing. You can tell just by their words and even storytelling how much they love writing.

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always had a thing for writing. I honestly didn’t realize how much I enjoy writing until I reached high school. Sitting in class, writing essays was something I enjoyed doing and it took me a minute to even realize it. It wasn’t until after high school that I went from doing essays to start writing in journals, then I started blogging and I became more passionate about writing and what I write about. The same can be said about blogging because I’ve been trying to give you guys some good content to read and I will continue to do so. Not only does writing shows off your inner mind, but it can always calm yourself down. There’s been cases where I would be a little upset at something and in order to calm myself down, I would grab my journal and just write what’s on my mind, kinda like a diary I would say. That’s what writing can do to a lot of people, calm them down. Relieve some of their stress. A writing utensil and a notebook can be your scapegoat to almost all of your problems. You just gotta be in the right state of mind to do so and once you get right to it, you’ll start to develop a passion for it.

There’s so much more I could say about writing that I haven’t said enough about it already. Writing is one of the best tools anyone can have and like I said before it’s a great scapegoat to your problems. Almost every blogger in the world has a love for writing and you can too once you put your mind and effort into it. Show the world your mind. Show the world your writing skills. Show the world that you can tell your story through your own words. Show the entire world, your love for writing.

A Creative Mind

Creativity is one of the best traits a person could ever have. This allows you to think outside the box, think from your own imagination, and use that imagination to create something very special for people to remember you by. You can create anything you want as long as you use your mind and effort and that’ll result in something special. I love being creative. To me it’s an underground talent. An underground talent that not many people look at as a talent itself, but to me it is. Anybody who uses creativity in their crafts will get positive results no matter what, whether it’s right away or sometime down the road.

If you’re someone who believes that you don’t have a creative bone in your body, that’s where you reach deep down into your brain and find a way to put your mind to the test. Put yourself in a situation where you can take something that’s broken, and then building it back up while being creative along the way. Use the creative juices in your brain any chance you get and you’ll be amazed with yourself from the outcome. Your creativity demonstrates who you are. Your creativity demonstrates your character. Believe me, you wouldn’t want to have your creative talents wasted by waiting for the chance to express them. If you have something creative to share, then share it to the world. Show each and every single person out there that you’re a genius in your craft. Show everyone your inner creations.

My favorite thing about having a creative mind is being able to share it with people. That should be anyone’s favorite thing when it comes to their creativity. I just love to create anything that I desired and being able to show it to many people and their reactions makes up for it as well. Hearing someone say things like “nice work!” or “wow, this is some of the most creative things I’ve ever seen!” can really make you believe that your craft has pulled off. Don’t ever be afraid to share your work across the globe. The worst that could ever happen is someone telling you that your work wasn’t good.

Not many people will realize this, but criticism can be very helpful when it comes to your creativity. Not everyone’s gonna like your creativity and honestly that’s okay. Whenever you create something and someone tells you that they don’t like your work, then that’s when you use your creative mind once again almost immediately to create something even better. You’ll always need that kick in the ass to come up with something better in order for you to showcase as much of your creative craft as you can. 

Your creative mind can give you so much life. Your creative mind can show you things that you never would’ve thought to ever see in this world. In a special way, your creative mind is a gift. A gift you’ve received from a very special place, the heavens. Put your creative mind to use. Show your creativity around the world and beyond.

Eminem: Kamikaze

This is an album review that I didn’t think I was gonna do but after finally listening to the whole thing, a review MUST be done! Without a doubt, this album has already gone down as one of my favorite albums of 2018. Today’s album review will be on Eminem’s newest release: Kamikaze.

This album was released exactly one week ago today on August 31st. This came out of nowhere! Literally over night, this album was released to the world and people were blindsided by it. Most people, if not everyone across the country, had already reviewed this album on the day it was released and I didn’t plan on doing this review until I actually heard the whole album myself. Now this album featured so much disses to current rappers of today’s generation. Eminem pretty much dropped a diss album if you want to put it that way. He had some much to say about current rappers including Migos, Lil Pump, Machine Gun Kelly, Lil Yachty, etc. Not only did this album featured so much disses, but he praised some many other current rappers today as well. He praised the likes of Kendrick Lamar, J Cole, Hopsin, Logic, etc. This album had some much hits such as The Ringer, Fall, Lucky You, Nice Guy, Good Guy, Venom, and more.

My top three favorite songs off this album were Lucky You, Fall, and most definitely, The Ringer. Lucky You featured one of the hottest rappers today, Joyner Lucas. The collaboration between Eminem and Joyner was something I didn’t expect to be so good. They brought so much joy to the song and it proved to me that Joyner Lucas has a lot more to offer to the rap industry. Fall was a song that showed some emotion behind it to me. Everything from the beat to the harmony including Justin Vernon showed some type of emotion. This song mostly focused on the backlash Eminem got from his last album, “Revival”. To be honest, Revival wasn’t good. Eminem received so much criticism from that album and each comment had got to him. All that anger fueled up in his body from that criticism was shown in this song. You can hear it in his lyrics, he had enough of it. Now The Ringer. Oh boy! Eminem went IN on this song! This was the diss track that caught everyone by surprise, including the rap community. In this song, Eminem took shots at almost every single rapper today. Words can’t do a justice for this song. You have to go back and listen to this song in order to feel how I felt about it. Each verse will make you open your eyes big with great shock. Seriously, this song is THE song of the album.

This album featured so much good hits and each song had some sort of message behind them. Each song had nice flows in them and Eminem delivered some awesome punchlines that only Eminem himself can always do. If there’s one thing I can agree on about this album that everyone else has said, is that Slim Shady is back! Welcome back Shady! This album definitely gets an 10/10.

Scotland

Next stop, Scotland! Scotland has always been an unique country that I want to visit. It’s unique to me because of their overall atmosphere of their wildernesses. Whenever I see pictures of wilderness in some of their cities, I just feel in awe. Not just their wildernesses but some of their ancient buildings look very cool to see. That’s why I chose the featured photo that’s presented for this blog. That photo perfectly expresses what I would love to see in person in the beautiful country of Scotland.

First place I would visit is the famous city of Glasgow. Now normally I would visit the biggest cities last, but for Scotland I would want to get the big cities out the way first then visit the nature aspect of the country last. Glasgow has some very artistic features within the city. The Riverside Museum would be a cool place to check out to see some modern art featuring historic vehicles and modern technology displays. This place sounds like it would feature art from current talented artists and that would be awesome to see. The Glasgow Necropolis is an interesting place to visit as well, especially because it’s a very famous cemetery. A minimum of 50,000 people have been buried here! On top of that, the tombstones look incredible! I’ve never seen so much top notch tombstones in my life and I really wanna check them out. I definitely want to visit the People’s Palace. A huge museum that displays a beautiful garden and collections of photos and prints of Glasgow over the years are something to look forward to seeing in person.

Edinburgh would be the next place I’d visit. Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland and judging by the Edinburgh Castle, I can see why this city’s the capital. Edinburgh Castle is a very historic castle that’s positioned on the Castle Rock. It’s the home of  Scotland’s famous crown jewels and even holds the Stone of Destiny. It looks like a beautiful place to visit and holds so much royalty to it. The Calton Hill looks awesome to see because it literally looks like you can see the city’s entire view just by standing on this hill. It also features a nice art gallery too so that’s something cool to see as well. One place in Edinburgh that I would love to visit is Arthur’s Seat. Arthur’s Seat is the peak of the groups of hills in Edinburgh. This hill features a huge mountain that I feel once I stand on it, I would feel like I’m at the top of the world. Seriously if anyone has been to Arthur’s Seat, I would like to know how’s the view from the top of that mountain.

Last place I would visit in the city of Inverness. This city brings me back to the point I made earlier about Scotland’s unique wildernesses. Inverness looks amazing and it’s the cultural capital of the Scottish Highlands. The two main places I would visit is the Inverness Castle and the Urquhart Castle. The Urquhart Castle has so much history behind each of its unique areas. The castle’s two biggest areas is the Nether Bailey and the Upper Bailey. Nether Bailey is the main focus of this castle and is the tallest portion of the castle, despite the southern wall collapsing in a storm in the early 18th century. Upper Bailey is the highest part of this castle and became the motte of the original castle built by the Durwards in the 13th century. The Inverness Castle is the top castle of the city. Oddly enough the castle itself isn’t open to the public, but it’s a good place to visit the surroundings of it. That’s where I would take the opportunity to visit the overall nature surrounding this castle. The land looks amazing and with a river nearby, would be a nice place to check out the view of the nature. This castle has some medieval history behind it as well. The castle is said to have been built by Máel Coluim III of Scotland, after he had razed to the ground the castle in which Macbeth of Scotland according to much later tradition, murdered Máel Coluim’s father Donnchad I of Scotland, and which stood on a hill around 1 km to the north-east. Then in 1428, James I summoned fifty clan chiefs to a parley at Inverness Castle. Talk about medieval.

Scotland is all about it’s nature and that’s a plus in my book. This country would be a recommended place to visit if you’re someone who’s into everything or anything wilderness. I can’t wait to visit Scotland in the future! Looking like a great country to explore.

Japan

Now how exactly can I talk about traveling and not include Japan? That’s a question anybody should ask themselves whenever they talk about traveling. Japan is a place I would love to go visit in a heartbeat. So many great places to see in person that wouldn’t even be described in words for me. So much of their culture and history are things that I always read about and would like to see in person. One day I sure would love to do a big tour of Japan. Everything from their temples to their gardens, Japan has some of the best cultural environments in the world.

The first town I would visit is Kyoto. Kyoto is a city located on the island of Honshu. Kyoto was also once the capital of Japan before Tokyo took the prestige. The Kinkaku-ji  , now know as  Rokuon-ji, is a temple that’s very popular in Japan. It attracts so much visitors and I would like to see the hype of it for myself. From the photos I’ve seen of the temple, it looks like a beautiful place to go to for a morning trip. The sunset around the temple makes the whole environment look very astonishing. Another building I’d like to check out is the Nijō Castle. The Nijō Castle consists two concentric rings of fortifications, the Ninomaru Palace, the ruins of the Honmaru Palace, various support buildings and several gardens. The castle was built in 1601 and it even still has an old school look to it. This place does have a very nice garden and the overall atmosphere is great.

Osaka, Japan is another city that I would love to visit. Osaka is mostly known for their architecture and especially their nightlife, which I would love to experience the most. First place I would check out is the Osaka Castle.The castle is surrounded by a moat and park with plum, peach and cherry-blossom trees. It’s the most historical building in Osaka and one of Japan’s most famous landmarks! Another place I wanna see is the Umeda Sky Building. That building’s like the Empire State Building of Osaka. This building consists of two 40-story towers that connect at their two uppermost stories, with bridges and an escalator crossing the wide atrium-like space in the center. It’s the NINETEENTH tallest building Osaka! Lastly, I would LOVE to visit Dōtonbori! Since I’m a guy who loves the nightlife scene in big cities, Dōtonbori has everything that I look forward to in those type of environments. Everything from the restaurants to the entertainments, this place is THE place to go to in Osaka if you would want to experience their nightlife.

Last and certainly not least, I would love to visit the capital of Japan, Tokyo! I’ve read so many stories and seen so many pictures of Tokyo that I just can’t wait to go to see for myself. First place I would visit is Tokyo’s oldest temple, Sensō-ji. Sensō-ji is actually in the top 10 most visited temples in Japan and that’s pretty impressive. This place has so much history behind it. It was associated with the Tendai sect of Buddhism, then became an independent temple after World War II in 1945. Every year tons of visitors visit this temple and this place always receives high praise from each of those visitors. Another place I would visit is the Tokyo Tower. This tower is equivalent to France’s Eiffel Tower. It looks just as beautiful as the Eiffel Tower and it’s only the second tallest structure in Japan! Of course to experience the nightlife, I would visit Roppongi. Roppongi features so much bars and nightclubs that would make me feel like I’m in heaven. There’s so much places in Tokyo that I would love to see, but I most definitely want to check out the Ueno Park. I’m not much of a tree person, but I would love to see the cherry blossom trees and many more. There’s a total of 8,800 trees! This park include such historical trees including Ginkgo Biloba, Cinnamomum Camphora, Zelkovaserrata, Formosan Cherry, and tons more. This park is visited my millions of tourist each year and I can definitely see why.

The Land of the Rising Sun. Japan has many names, but the name I would give that country is Iconic. So much history and cultures to explore in Japan and it only gets bigger from there. I can’t wait to see all of Japan myself and hope to leave some very good memories there too!
