All I Wanna Do...

I was asked by someone recently to write something on my blog about what I wanted to do...rather than going on about how much I've done, and how much I do.

I was thinking about this, and discovered a little note I'd written on my trusty PDA entitled:
"Things I Wanna Do:"

So here they are:
* have my family be together and happy
* be the Godfather (without the killing and illegal activities)
* transforming goan community-50 goans doing Landmark Forum
* being healthy-living to 100 years of age
* creating a school as a Headmaster
* teach teachers
* lead the Team Leader programme at Landmark Education
* get the Young London Goans' Society (YLGS) in the media
* create a foundation for YLGS to be around forever
* buy a house
* have at least 1 party per year for friends
* write a book
* design a portfolio of tattoos
* build my own website
* write an album

In actually reading this, it's making me think about my future, and what I want to create - and of course - am I working towards it or not.

It's something for me to think about.

State Of The World Address


Well the hair had to come off at some point - it was getting too big...I'm glad I did it...feels much easier to manage - although I think I'm beginning to lose my hair...

New Year and all that has made me think about a lot of things...like the fact I'm turning 30 this year...

...and I still get told I look about 22...

Looking young is not such a bad thing I guess...it's worse for my sis - who at 27 gets asked for ID before going into a club she's been a regular at for over 5 years...hahahaha...

I've been thinking a lot about music and stuff too...am I getting too old to be dressing how I dress and listen to the music I listen to? I bought two albums over the Christmas period...and they're both excellent...people who know me, know that I love System of a Down, but I've recently discovered a rather excellent young metal band called Trivium.

I'd seen their big song on a few music channels...and it's wormed its way into my head - delightful title too: "Pull Harder on the Strings of your Martyr"...

All this has made me think...am I getting older, or is it just the music scene in general? I mean I used to go out and have the time of my life at our local 'metal' pub...but it doesn't seem to be as good as it was.

Even the club my sis and I used to go and regularly dance all night - has gone shit (there really is no other way of saying it). Maybe I'm stuck in a 90s timewarp and getting nostalgic over the 'real age of music'...whatever it is - the state of the world address is bad.

I need to go out for a good night of metal...
