Life Less Frightening

Don’t forget to join the domain competition. There are still six domains to win. The current question is a difficult one so not many people have answered. πŸ˜‰

I’ve got a few updates, so let’s get those out of the way. There’s a new caption competition, for starters. That isn’t that interesting but I have better news. I had one of my domains, Midnight Mist, in limbo – a hosting site and then a quotes database, but now it’s revamped with a better (albeit dark) layout, and it’s going to have quotes, but they’re going to be more interesting and decorated in Photoshop. I got the idea from Meera.

Some of you might know Rachel, one of my great online friends. I’ve created a fanlisting for her so please join. πŸ™‚

Updates out of the way. 😁

I was listening to music the other day, as usual, and I came across some songs that I hadn’t listened to in a while. Some songs just make me want to dance. It’s like a switch going off in my head.

I suddenly hear the beat of an awesome song, and it ticks off this fire inside me and it makes me dance like mad. O_O I’m sure a lot of us dance to music in private more than we care to admit. I don’t know, maybe some of us sing in the shower. πŸ™„

But I guess that’s what we do. We sing in private or hum quietly so no one can hear us. I feel a bit embarrassed singing out loud. I have a few videos of me singing on YouTube and I guess I pulled up the confidence to put them there. I wasn’t really made for performing using my voice. I’ve been pretty self conscious about it.

In high school I used to sit next to this guy in class. The class I probably liked the least – mathematics. He listened to music most of the time. I was actually a little bit scared of him because he was so “hardcore” and he never seemed to smile. πŸ˜“

I didn’t really know what sort of music this guy liked, because he wasn’t one of those people who listen to music at full volume so that they can’t hear anything around them. I guess I got a little curious. His gelled hairstyle and personality screamed out some sort of… no, not hardcore rock… nah… he wasn’t the kind to listen to metal…

Typically, he looked like your average punk guy.

He was a really quiet person. From the beginning of high school I got the impression that he was just shy. But he seemed quite unfriendly at times.

Well, did he like rap music? Yeah… of the sort. Korean music? A little perhaps, because he was Korean. I don’t think I ever found out exactly what sort of music he listened to. He was always a bit mysterious.

Being intimidated by a person is a weird feeling, especially someone you see almost every day. It was a little like that with this guy. Probably scarier than getting up on a stage to sing to people.

I talked to him a fair few times during high school. Nothing much, really. He was always put in the lowest class and was a lazy student, but when he actually tried, you could see how smart he was. Some time later, I found out that was an only child in a broken family; his parents had troubles, and he lived with his grandparents.

I guess, whatever music he listened to, it must have been some kind of solace.
