Social Media: The Voice of the Voiceless

One good thing about social media is that everyone has a voice. One bad thing about social media, is that EVERYONE has a voice. Yeah, literally EVERYONE. It’s good to have your voice heard whether it’s through social media or in person, but not so great when people use it for their negative voices.

We all speak our minds one way or another on social media. That’s what’s cool about it though. We can use social media to get our opinions out there that no one else would want to hear, so we could express it across the world. Even when it’s something negative, your voice will still be heard. Thing is, this happens every single day. Not a day goes by where no one speaks their mind on social media. That just doesn’t happen. Hell, even people who have really nothing to say always has something to say when it comes to social media. It’s about letting your voice be heard.

Social media is almost mainly used for people to voice their negativity. There’s ALWAYS someone out there who wants to be an ass and say something incredibly stupid. Yes, they’re expressing their voices, but not in a good way. That can sometimes harm people who actually has something POSITIVE to say. The more we see the negativity go around, no one’s gonna want to take the serious ones seriously. It sucks.

Lastly, there’s people who use social media to voice their “unwanted” voices. Let me tell you something, your voice ALWAYS matters! If person 1 and 2 doesn’t want to hear your voice well guess what, that’s what social media is for. Voice it to everyone else who wants to hear what you have to say. They will always listen. I will always listen. Social media is a powerful tool to get yourself out there to the world and as long as you use it for good, you’ll always be heard and never forgotten about.

Though social media, you’re the voice of the voiceless. NEVER be voiceless!

Be Professional

Wake up, clean yourself up, put on your suit and tie, and go on with your day. Greet everyone, make eye contact, show them respect, they’ll return the favor. When you talk, people listen. When people talk, you listen. You show them that you’re interested in what they have to say. They show the same thing to you. You learn something new every day. You’re a learner. You show them that you care, and that you want to bring something to the table. You want to be a game changer in the world, and you can do that once you show profession. As long as you’re professional, you’ll accomplish anything in life. Not everyone can be a professional unfortunately, but I know for sure you can. You show everyone that you mean business. You’ll become the business. You’ll be a true professional. Show the world that you’re exactly what you are, a professional.

Be professional every single day. Watch how quickly you’ll be respected and well loved. That’s well deserved.

There’s pieces of heaven all around you. All you got to do is look around. It’s there. You don’t have to wait til death to see it.

Popularity Always Wins

If you’re an upcoming artist, you’ll work harder than ever to get yourself going. You’ll put your work all over social media. You’ll send out multiple flyers. You talk to many people, trying to promote your work to them. Nothing’s going your way so far, and that’s fine honestly. Overtime you continue to promote your work and still, nothing happens. You don’t get any recognition and you begin to wonder why. “Why can’t I get any views?” “Why is no one checking out my work” “So much work I put in and nothing is viewed. Why?”

Then you start to notice another person who’s upcoming and is instantly getting a crap ton of views, a crap ton of recognition. Why? Is it because that person’s working twice as hard as you are? Maybe, but who really knows. Then it dawns on you, that person is more POPULAR than you. That person KNOWS more people than you. Sure that person works, but it’s the fact that they’re more well known that they’re getting all of the recognition. All of that hard work you put in and for some reason people don’t want to get you a look. All work and no play, yet no one wants to pay attention. Apparently, even though you’re an amateur, if you’re not popular in some form of fashion then no one will look at your work. No one will look at your art. All because of your low popularity. You could have some great content out there, but the fact that you’re not popular will hinder your rise to the top for some reason. Why?

I would figure that if people like what they see from your work, then they would HELP you get to the top. They would HELP you strive for greatness. They would HELP you become POPULAR! I guess, if you’re not popular already then no one will care.

Popularity always wins. That sucks. Really.

Ignorance Reigns, as Always

In this world, in one way or another, ignorance reigns. I don’t understand it. How could this be? Why is it that no matter how good you do in this world, ignorance somehow ALWAYS reigns?! Do people enjoy it? They must do in some way. I just don’t get it.

Power is always given to the ignorance. Once the wrong person has power, ignorance will reign everywhere else. You can try to avoid it, but you can’t. It’s sickening. If you want to avoid it, good luck with that. It’ll come back to bite you on the ass. You can fight ignorance, but it will reign somehow.

Hell, just take a look at the banner for this blog below:

^ This said it all. Ignorance is the root of all evil. Ignorance reigns. I hate it. Can’t stand it. This SHOULD NOT be the case. We can always do our best to rule over it, but somehow, some way, it’ll always reign. I just want an answer to why.

Today We Remember….

Today we remember the tragic events that took place 18 years ago.

Today we remember where we were when we heard the horrible news.

Today we remember tons of innocent loved ones who lost their lives that day.

September 11th, 2001 will always be a day in infamy. Such a horrific day in the history of the United States of America. Such evilness was brought down here in this country and we just couldn’t understand why. It happened so suddenly and fast. People had little time to react when it first began and unfortunately it has changed the nation very dramatically.

Once the news was brought to us, the whole county stopped in their tracks. We all watched the news as the terrorist attacks took place in New York City. Couldn’t believe what we saw. So much chaos, so much destruction, so much evil. So many people lost their lives that day. Thousands I may add. It was so tragic and to think this all happen in the span of one day. It’s very sickening.

Today we remember 9/11. If you’re someone who had a relative or a friend that tragically died that day, my condolences go out to you and your family. That day changed this country forever and I will say; America has grown to become stronger than ever since that day. Never forget.

God Bless America πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²

Post Malone: Hollywood’s Bleeding

Time for a new album review! This one’s pretty interesting as I’m not a huge Hip/Hop fan, but this album was heavily requested for me to review so I said why not? Today’s album review will be on Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding!

Recently released on September 6th, this album was anticipated by a lot of fans as I believe it’s been a while since Malone has released an album. This album featured 17 tracks including Enemies, self titled Hollywood’s Bleeding, Saint – Tropez, On The Road, Sunflower, Internet, etc. Long ass album it seems like. Each track was very interesting as they have a variety of moods to them, which I really enjoy. Some can be bumpy, some can be laid back, some can be sad, etc.

The one intriguing song on this album was of course Take What You Want that featured the unlikely duo of Travis Scott and the legendary Ozzy Osbourne! When I first heard this title, I said “featuring who?!” After I finished listening to it, I was actually surprised at how good it was. Now I said the two of them were an unlikely duo, but I must say they sound pretty likely to me during that song. Post Malone sure does do some interesting collaborations and I hope we hear more of songs like this going forward.

Overall, I’ll give this album a 8/10 rating. Good songs, good features. Check it out guys if you haven’t yet for sure. It’s available everywhere!
