Easter

Is that time of year where children are on holiday due to Easter and I do say it has been so far a fascinating Easter! Easter is a Christian Festival and holiday for all to celebrate Jesus’s Resurrection. However in this holiday people are given Easter eggs to eat, to add to their collection or even go for an Easter Egg hunt.

Easter is a time where family get together and enjoy the holidays, go for a holiday, see family or more. For me its about being with Family and Friends. Today I went to Northwick Park to celebrate Holi with fellow Universities and mates. I had a really good time (see the picture below). My whole face was covered with colour and I had a brilliant time spending with some of my closest friends. With Easter there was no Easter Egg, however the feeling being surrounded by close ones made me forget about having chocolate.

Me, Holi

Driving at night…

Driving at night requires a lot of concentration as anything can happen. I just came back from seeing my good friends from North London and believe me it was a journey which literally has done my head in. I don’t like driving at night as it requires me to have full attention on the roads as anything can pop out, for example foxes, people who are idiots crossing the road when they shouldn’t which makes drivers do an emergency break; which the consequences of doing that may lead into an accident for the driver, vehicle behind the driver or even the pedestrian crossing the road.

Some drivers like to drive in the night as there are less cars and less people when they’re more focused on the roads then they usually are makes them tired. Motorway agency have a saying “tiredness can kill, take a break” which most seem to ignore that; thinking they can complete the whole journey without getting into an accident. Well they’re wrong as if you’re tired, you lose concentration, your awareness is severely lacking and more. Hence why you should be careful whilst driving in the night, if you want to continue driving do so but have some sort of an energy drink to keep away and pull over once a while and have stretch. YOUR life or others isn’t the risk of losing; so why put yourself in danger?

Zombies… Will they exist ever?

TheWalkingDead

You see movies, shows, stories and people’s tale about Zombies and how they exist or will exist in the future, the question is will they ever? As you know shows and movies like The Walking Dead and 28 days later give an indication about an infection spreading around causing severe havoc which leads to loss of billions of life’s. Shows and movies which show zombies tell us how our lives will be what we need to do survive.

However these shows clearly tells us there’s no cure and that everyone is infected with a disease within us. So what will we do if this ever happens? Fight against our own? Unite with our own and fought the zombies? Time will tell, stay safe, be alert, who knows what can happen tomorrow.

Eastenders

Eastenders has been the one of the longest running shows in British Television history. It was first aired since 1985 and has been one of the top rating shows in the UK. I have been watching this show since a very young age and this show has taught me a lot. What this show has taught be that you shouldn’t keep lies from those who you love the most has it will hurt them if they find out at the end, also it has taught me if you ever have an affair you’ll always end up being caught and so on. This show has many casts which has come and gone, but one family which is well known in Eastenders is the Mitchells. Peggy, Grant, Phillip, Ben, Billy and so on are part of the Mitchell family.

Eastenders for me is funny, has a message sending across to viewers, upsetting and just an enjoyable show. When events happens such as someone leaving the show or dying, the show puts in a hour episode to allow the users know something is happening. Currently what  is happening in the show is Alfie is filling for a divorce with Kat, Phillip is looking after Lola’s baby, Billy and Ian are trying to find a lady with Ian having more luck, there’s a gang involved which Liam is involved in. Many people don’t like Eastenders for several reasons but I’m sure people like shows which other people don’t, if you’ve any views on Eastenders please feel free to leave any comments.

When will summer come?

summer

So far, the weather has been miserable and cold which many of us know. We all want summer to come to get rid of the bitter weather but is it worth it? Some prefer the cold as you don’t sweat as much as you do in the summer. Some prefer the summer because you will be kept warm. For me personally I prefer a bit of both of the weather combination as I won’t be as cold as I’m in the Winter nor warm as I will be in the summer.

In the Easter holidays I’m sure most have runaway to countries which have the hot weather to escape cold bitterly United Kingdom. If I had the choice to go to a holiday to escape the cold weather, personally I would want to go to Spain, America, Italy, Portugal or India. These countries are known to have warm temperatures most of the year which will benefit those who prefer the hot weather to cold. If you had a choice of country to go to escape the cold or hot weather, where would you go?

 

How I lost 3 grand?

poker

Yes, the title says it; I lost 3 grand within the blink of an eye. Now you guys must be thinking “are you crazy”,”you dumb/stupid?” Well truth be told I literally skipped a heart beat. I can’t even describe to you how I felt, in my mind I thought it was the right thing to do and you shall know why.

Me and my cousins gathered to play poker to see who can win. I’ve been lucky in recent times as I won last time with a lot of bluffs as nobody can read me nor my actions as I like to change the way I present myself on the table every time I play. Well as there were 5 of us playing nobody knew how the game will be played as the cards unpredictable in terms what cards will be given; one hour into the game someone went out, how? Reckless betting won’t get you anywhere, sure it scares off opponents but if someone catches your bluff and you call “all in” (meaning putting all your chips into play) and the other person matches it and they end up winning, you end losing and being out of the game. Within 30 minutes another person went out, how? Well the person wasn’t getting the cards in their hand and therefore couldn’t play, when the person tried to bluff, it failed. Soon there was 3 of us left.

Now this bit gets interesting; as I got out the person in a flush with a high card ace I stacked up well over 4 grand and was the chip leader. The cards were dealt; in my hand I got a 3 and 5 different suited which was fine as in my mind I straight it possible if the cards came out. In the flop (3 cards are dealt, shown up) two 3’s appeared and a 8. Straight away I got three of a kind and I told myself “right, its your game, bet heavy and you’ll wipe out someone.” As I did bet heavy one person folded leaving me and my cousin, which he called my bet. The turn came and it was  queen which didn’t affect me; but I still bet more and once again he called. The final card had been dealt which was a King which once again had no affect on me. I checked seeing the opponents move; which he put in 500. In my mind I thought he was bluffing so instead of calling his 500, I called all in which was well over 4000. He called and he asked me to reveal my cards and as I did I had an adrenaline rush inside me thinking I’ve won a huge pot but I was proven wrong as he also had a 3 and a 8 which meant full house for him.

Seeing he couldn’t match my call I gave him what he had which was over 3000. I was absolutely gutted, I literally can’t explain how I felt but I was glad as the same time it wasn’t money I was playing with, it was poker chips. This taught be a lesson, you shouldn’t give in too quickly into something not knowing the outcome, should take your time and do things wisely. Lucky it was with chips, if it was with money I wouldn’t be here. However I still was in the game and started to play with cautiously and next thing you know, I got well over 7000 chips as I knocked my cousin who took my 3000 grand worth of chips. Me and the opponent decided to call it a draw as it could of gone on for a good period amount of time.

How Creative are you?

Being creative is a beneficial talent to have. It leads you to great success in life which will make people realize your talent. I would love to say I’m really creative but I’m not as creative as I would like to be but one day I would love to be creative. The picture you can see is Ganesh (Hindu God, known as the one with the elephant head). A good friend of mine designed this picture for her art coursework which got her an A. This is one primary example of creativeness. Another example will be the creativeness will be a music artists who have the ability to sing and write up their own music. Will-I-Am is a prime example for this matter.

For me, I would love to play the guitar one day and I’m planning to learn it in the Summer. For me it will become a hobby as I always desired to play it and one day I will hopefully be able to composite a song. Will I be able to achieve it? We shall see in the summer, but for now, its all about taking step by step to become a creative person. Tell me how creative you’re and what are your hidden talents?
