Why I Will Never Gatecrash A Party Again

It is Saturday night, I am working, the neighbors have amazing music, I feel like asking them to turn it up…

In my misspent youth, I soon found out that where party music sounds good, you can get a bottle of wine, dress nicely, smile, say “John invited us”, and you’re in.

But there were times when it didn’t quite go according to plan…

Such as the time when I (Caucasian) and some Asian friends tried to gatecrash a party that sounded just amazing, great music, awesome music system, we got so excited… We got our alcoholic offerings and knocked on the door. A smiling black man answered the door, with smiling black people from 4 generations behind him in the living room, all bearing a remarkable similarity in looks, dressed in their Sunday best, and well, you’ve probably guessed it, a family celebration! Red-faced, we quickly made our excuses. We had the wrong address we said. We went back to our homes and just watched TV on our own…

Years later, obviously this fiasco was forgotten, as I was tempted yet again. I had not learnt my lesson.

My next door neighbours seemed to party every day. And I was not invited. The music, coming through the thick concrete walls, sounded amazing. The heavy bass, a nice beat, and the sound of their laughter, well it was more than I could bear! So, armed with a bottle of good wine, I gathered up my courage and knocked on their door; the point of no return. The door opened, they smiled broadly and said sure, I was more than welcome. They invited me in and I could see everyone was sat around the TV. Not many people actually, only a handful. All watching the film Jungle Book and singing and clapping along. I did not like Jungle Book. Oh dear. It was a long night.

My face ached after hours of forcing a smile on my face. My arms ached after hours of forcing myself to clap. Only my voice was intact, but that was because I didn’t know the words to the songs.

As soon as the film finally was allowed to finish, I thanked them as sincerely as I could muster and retreated to the relative excitement of my home.

Needless to say, that was the last party that I gatecrashed. Lesson learned.

The neighbours’ music next door (different property) sounds great as I write. I simply tap for the temptation. It goes away. I enjoy the music from afar. Life is good.

A Criterion to Choosing the Best Blog

One of the greatest inventions that has ever been made till date, has been the Internet. The Internet has become so phenomenal, to the point that it has changed how people do their day-to-day activities. For example, today in order to get knowledge and information, you do not need to keep reading books from the library. Instead, you can just search for the right is that you are looking for in the Internet, and you will get multiple articles and even books, that people have put up on the Internet in relation to the topic that you are searching for. This is one of the most phenomenal things about the time and age that we live in. Today, people have access to unlimited information.

One of the ways that you can gain knowledge very quickly, is by reading blogs. These are Internet websites that are specifically dedicated to sharing knowledge about very many different topics. They range from how to cook different types of recipes, to how to fix engines of different cars and even how to plan for a trip overseas. Depending on what your cup of tea is, we can assure you that there is a blog dedicated to that particular topic. However, this presents the challenge of how to pick the blog to subscribe to given the different types of blogs that are there on the Internet and also given the high number of blogs that are there on the Internet. In this article, shall seek to discuss some of the factors that you need to have in mind even as you choose a blog to subscribe to.

The first thing that you need to look into, is the content that is being put up on the blog post. Depending on what it is that you are looking for, you would then search for a blog that is in relation to that. For example, if you are looking for a blog that is holistic in its approach to life, and there are very many. You will find people who put up blogs that revolve around family, God and raising kids with invaluable advice that they can give you. Most of these people are usually parents who have gone ahead and are putting up their experiences as parents for everyone to read. This again, is information that is invaluable.

Secondly, you want to check the frequency at which the owner of the blog updates the blog website. The best way to keep tabs on every new updated that will be put out, is to subscribe to these blog websites. They would send you an email every time the put up a new post, and in most cases, a link in that email so that you can just click on it to go and read the new post. Some people will post weekly updates while others will post even daily updates. Depending on your schedule and how much time you have to read the blogs, you will pick whichever is most convenient for you.

The personality of the author of the blog is also quite important. This is because the personality of the author will often come out in the writing style. And just like it is whenever you meet people you will either click with some people or not. Therefore, you want to pick a blog whose author is a person you feel like you can connect with.
