10 facts about This Angry Teller…

So I thought instead of doing a post of my usual stuff I’d try something different. So I’ll be writing ten weird and wacky facts about myself that most people won’t know about me. Without further delay here goes. 

1■ ME AND AVOCADOS DON’T GO TOGETHER. In general,I wouldn’t describe myself as a fussy eater but when it comes to that green mush that most people seem to enjoy I’m instantly turned off. Friends and family already know that if they’re making a salad no avocado in my plate thanks. 

2■ CR7 OVER MESSI. Ask soccer fans all over the world about who the best in the world is and you are likely to hear them being divided between Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi. I’m a Ronaldo fan. Maybe I’m being biased since he from Madeira (my family’s from there) and he played for Manchester United, my favourite soccer club. I think he an amazing soccer player. 

3■ I STILL WATCH WWE. Call it sports entertainment,call it fake,call it whatever you want,but even after all these years i still enjoy watching WWE. From the days of Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior, through the attitude era with The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin right up to the present day with John Cena,Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton. My favourite pro wrestler without doubt and who i consider to be the G.O.A.T is The Undertaker.

4■ BMW ALL THE WAY. When it comes to cars every person has their favourite brand. I’ve been very fortunate to drive some really awesome motor vehicles over the years but I definitely have a love affair with BMW. All cars that I’ve owned have been BMW and I can’t really see that changing in the future. Mind you, if money was not an issue my absolute dream car would be a Lamborghini .

5■ I LOVE DANCING. Now let’s just make a distinction right here. I absolutely love dancing and I’ve taken Latin American and Ballroom dance lessons on and off for the last 10 or so years but even though I’ve managed to win a comp or so it doesn’t mean I’m any good. It’s just an awesome way to relieve stress. 

6■ I HAVE YET TO WATCH A SINGLE EPISODE OF STAR WARS. Now don’t get me wrong I absolutely love going to the cinema and watching movies in general but I’ve never ever had the inclination to watch star wars. Now considering that lots of my friends are huge fans makes me a complete outsider in this aspect. 

7■ I’M A WALKING CONTRADICTION-WELL SOMETIMES. It might be down to the fact that I’m born under the start sign of Gemini but there is a definite sense of duality when it comes to me. I’m usually quite calm and relaxed most of the time but in just as quick to lose my temper. Another case is that I love doing absolutely nothing whenever I have the time but can get rather impatient on the roads or in a queue. Those are just 2 examples. 

8■ WOLVERINE IS MY FAVOURITE COMIC BOOK SUPERHERO. Maybe it’s the fact that I like Hugh Jackman  or maybe it’s because of the human element but there is something about the character of Wolverine that I really identify with. He is by far my favourite superhero character. 

9■ THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE DISLIKE ME ON FIRST IMPRESSION. Now this might be a strange one but countless people have said this of me. I tend not to make the best first impression. I come across as unfriendly and somewhat unapproachable. I can’t really argue with them. 

10■ WHEN IT COMES TO ME, I’M MY OWN WORST CRITIC. The people that know me will vouch for this. I’m by far my own worst critic. I don’t really think I’m good enough in any field and I have a really low self esteem. I’d call myself a realist while everyone would call me a pessimist. 

So there we go…10 little known facts about myself that maybe you weren’t aware of. Hopefully you guys and gals enjoyed this post. Have a great Friday and weekend further. 

Till the next time peeps. Ciao

Love in our times: a necessity or not?

Love. The one thing that binds all of us as humans together. The one thing that we all crave in some form or other. Love comes in many different forms and disguises. Whether its parental,sibling,to that between husband and wife or even between best friends,love appears differently to different people.

I used to believe that each one of us were destined to find love and have love in our lives. I used to think that without love it would be impossible to live a happy and enjoyable life. I used to think love was a necessary ingredient for a well-lived life. Ask most people and i’m almost certain that they would echo that sentiment.

Well,as the years have rolled by and life has happened i’m sorry to say that i no longer feel the same way. The world is a messed up place in most cases and to be brutally honest,if you look around,love seems to be less important to a lot of people. People would rather chase money and other more selfish and self serving interests.

More and more families are breaking apart,divorce is at an all time high whilst racial and religious intolerance is also rising all the time. I guess it would be fair to say that things were meant to be used and people were meant to be loved. The only problem in our messed up society is that people are used and things are loved.

The point i’m trying to make is that love is no longer a necessity in our current times. Love is more of a luxury. Not everyone will be loved,not everyone is destined to find someone to love. Hell some wont even have family to reciprocate love. However we shouldn’t let the lack of love detract us from living life to the fullest.

Am i a cynic? Well i don’t think love is a necessity but i do believe in love. The only difference is that i don’t believe i’m meant to find someone to love. I do however have amazing friends and family that i know love me. So i’ll let you decide whether i’m a cynic or not.

Do you guys and gals think that we’re all meant to love someone and that love is a necessity for us as the human race? Please drop a comment or message as i’d love to hear from you.

Till next time peeps. Ciao

Is this all?

Life. Now,I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not quite the world’s smartest person,and i don’t know many things about alot of subjects but one thing I know for sure is that when it comes to this little thing called life I know nothing. 
I thought by the time I turned 40 i would have figured out life and my purpose on this earth. What legacy would i leave behind? How would i be remembered? I still have no idea to be brutally honest with you. Am I alone in feeling this way? Am I ever supposed to figure it out or will I simply never know? 

Are we only put on this earth to work,live unfulfilling lives and than die? There are alot of days when it feels that way. For example how many of us are stuck in jobs that we not really passionate about? I know I,for one,am. A combination of having to pay the bills and a fear of  leaving for the unknown means that days and month’s will pass and I’ll be stuck doing the same thing over and over. I really do envy those select few that have a passion for what they do. The people that wake up in the morning and actually look forward to go work.

 The same thing applies to my personal life. I’ve been single for many years now that i just accept it as the norm. Do i prefer being singled? Am i meant to be forever alone?

So this is where i find that my mind wanders and i start thinking of answers. I start thinking of exactly why I was put on this planet. 

Like i said,the simple truth is,I have yet to find an answer. Am I the only one who feels lost and confused? Am I the only one who feels worthless? Someone who feels as if his life has no purpose and no direction. I sincerely hope not. 

 If any of you have ever felt the same or feel the same please send me a message and tell me how you found your purpose. I look forward to hearing from you. 

Till next time people. Ciao

WORDS : Do we even realise it’s true power?

I’m sure we’ve all heard the old saying ‘ Sticks and Stones may break my bones,but words will never hurt me. ‘ Unfortunately in my experience I have found this to be far from the truth. The truth is most people underestimate the power of words and the harm it can cause others.

Words might not hurt physically,like when someone throws a stone at you,but it can definitely have a major effect on someone and leave scars that last a lifetime. 

I,for one,usually have the problem of saying something before thinking if it will be hurtful or not to someone else. It’s amazing to think of the impact of what you say to someone else can have in their life. 

If used in the correct way,what we say to someone can build them up and motivate them and make them believe in themselves. With the right encouragement you will be able to see that person make an incredible transformation to the best possible version of themselves where they,in turn,will pay it forward and have a positive impact on someone else’s life. 

On the other hand if used incorrectly,what you say can have a major negative impact on a person’s life. How many times have we heard of people that bully others? Do we even think of what a person that gets called fat or ugly or gay goes through? These hurtful words is something that can linger on for many years and definitely shape how a person grows up? 

If you grow up and all you hear over and over is that you’re no good or that one of your so-called imperfections are repeatedly reinforced upon than you can just imagine how this will affect you. We have even heard of suicides where seemingly normal people with no known problems commit suicide out the blue. 

I guess what I’m trying to say is that we should all be careful when we speak. We should all use our words to try build people up,to help them and to motivate them to do positive things in society,instead of breaking them down. We might not be able to change the world on our own but if we can have a positive impact on just those that we come into contact with in our daily lives than that change will happen in time. 

Try spread the love people. God knows,this world is in desperate need of it.
