Im back!!! Rome was amazing!! Its one of those cities you could just wonder around all day and always find new places and be amazed at everything around you. And when you get tired, the food around you is brilliant too!! The only downside to it was the italians driving. You'd cross a road because the pedestrian signal was on green and then when you're halfway across you get cars trying to turn right!! I swear there are blanks in the italian highway code for them to fill in as they wish!! But that was the only downside, and i'd definitely visit again!!
My friend asked me to get her this weeks issue of 'kerrang' magazine while she was on holiday. Naturally, before I gave it to her, I had a quick read of it myself, being a rock fan and all. There was a really interesting article about the 'war against emos' and whether anything has really changed since my chemical romance released their album 'welcome to the black parade' (which, in my opinion, is one of the best albums released) and the daily mail published an article (which I subsequently googled and read and I was appalled) about how listening to 'emo' bands such as my chemical romance and greenday' leads to self harm etc. Its classic daily mail, to create an atmosphere of mass panic, be discriminative and encourage bullying just because some people like listening to emo bands, which apparently causes this self harm. Yes, there may be some people who self harm who listen to emo bands, but at the same time, theres plenty who dont. Across the globe, most recently in iraq, there have been killings of anyone who listened to emo music. Ironically, this kind of behaviour is best summed up in the lyrics to 'teenagers' by mcr. Youtube it. Needless to say, I'm genuinely proud to have been in the same room as the man who lead the chant "F*** the daily mail"!! Ok, rant over.
And as for my future, nothing's changed. Im still working for the grades. Im trying to get a job, but there seems to be like nothing available at the moment. Ah well, just gotta roll with it!
