Music is not a profession, but a way of life.

The Past Makes Us Who We Are Today

Cello Uncensored Posted on 13 Jul, 2013 00:25

We all have that second email which we never use anymore but refuse to shut down. Today while looking for an old contact, I went back to my even older yahoo account and started opening emails one by one. From 2012…. 2010… 2006… 2002! It was like stepping through time, which made me rather nostalgic all of a sudden. Once again, I was reminded just how fast time passes us by. It seemed like yesterday when I turned 18. Reading old emails can be fun, re-living those moments in life which can never be again. All we are left with, are the memories. Remembering old friends whom I have stopped contacting years ago, ex-boyfriends love letters, old concert invites etc..

Sometimes it’s good not to forget the past, because it makes who you are. Every stage of our life has a purpose, and we must follow our instinct no matter what other people say. It is your life. All you gotta do, is live it!

Lastly, a wonderful quote dedicated to all my faithful readers:

‘Your talent is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.’ – Leo Buscaglia



To Abort, Or Not To Abort.

I´m feeling lucky Posted on 13 Jul, 2013 00:03

No silly, we are not talking about me.

On twitter tonight, there was a heated discussion between two of my followers, that if a woman was raped and got pregnant, would she have the right to have an abortion. Funnily enough, my male follower said yes, she should absolutely have the right, because it was an unwanted pregnancy which she had not wanted nor asked for. On the other hand, the woman follower argued that the baby was innocent, so it would be like murdering your own child. Firstly, if you were raped and got pregnant, how is it that it is your child if its father actually raped you? It was a tragedy and the worst accident one can imagine. Secondly, if a child was not conceived with love and purpose, then having it would be a bigger mistake than bringing it to the world in such a fashion. I believe that the decision should entirely be the mother’s, however, I think any sane woman would not want to keep such a child, having to look at it everyday for the rest of her life, being reminded of what had happened.
