    • School Year... Done

      Hello everyone.

      How are you? 

      So, this week is the last week at school and honestly i couldn't have ben happier. The only thing i need to do is the instrument presentation to the new future students and of the school and then i'm done. FIN! FINITO! FINISHED!

      "clears throat" Ahem... Excuse me... 

      Okay. Now i can finaly focus on what i must do to, maybe, change careers and i realised that with just a simple music diploma, i can't go and do anything. So i'm looking for ways to study with low to zero cost. And i'm between Marketing/Digital Marketing and Graphics Design or Consept Artist for animations, videos games, you name it, for undergraduate lvl. These are the aspects that interest me the most. So i'm aiming to get either a Associates degree or a Bachelor at best. 

      Other than that i still continue wokring on my art and woodcarving/woodworking and of course the band. 

      Those are the news from me. 

      I hope you have a great week. 

      Cheers to you all.  beers

    • Being gone for a few days

      2 weeks ago

      Hey everyone, how are you?

      I hope you are doing well.

      As the title says above, i had gone off the grid for a few days (except from the Saturday RT radio show), just to clear my head from a few things that keep happening in my work. I needed some time "alone" so to speak. 

      Things are not going so well and i have been feeling so stressed out, even my insomnia getting worse again. I am in a position right now that i don't know what to do. 

      To make a long story short, a few music colleagues are trying to turn the tables on them and only on them, literaly stealing the rightful working hours that myself and a most of the rest colleagues have fought so many years to even have the right to have them. 

      It was a messed up week the previous week, but i managed to stop the "first wave" but this week it's even worse. And i can't do this by myself. I can't take it upon myself to protect my own rightfully mine working hours but also and the others... It's too stressful....  disappointed

      I just want to take a pillow and scream my lungs out....  

      It makes me wonder sometimes, why do i even bother... 

      I seriously need vacations now.

      Tomorrow is a new day, i know. I just feel like shit this moment.

      Guys, please be nice and respectful to each other. Take care ok?

      Cheers to you all.

      Hey ho, y'all.  

      How are you? I hope you are doing fine. 

      It's been 3 weeks since my last journal so it's time to make another one.

      So... Exams. Aaaaah, the sweet season when students and teachers alike are bags full of anxiety and nervousness. It has began, and i already wish i had vacation... Oh well. Just a few more weeks and it's over.. Other than that, i'm glad this school year is almost over. It was one of the "bad" years in the job... I still look for a job abroad, so if anyone knows any company that take immigrants, please let me know so that i can send resumes and cover letters. Thanks.

      Rehearsals are going great, some lives are coming up. I'll post the announcement when the time comes. ;) Plus i'll soon be working on building a official website for the band. Wish me good luck to that.

      I'm also slowly and steadily receiving more and more orders from friends and their friends to make for them wooden jewelry. Soon i'll start making metal jewerly too. All i need is a good working space in my room and i'll start making more often and more things. :D 

      Well, that's all folks. For now. 

      I wish you a good day.

      Cheers to you all.  beers

      What is the strangest dish you have ever eaten or made?

      Chicken feet. My Greek grandma used to make them. It was not delicious, to tell you the truth. No meat whatsoever, just tendons and skin. 

    • Exam preparations + Band Rehearsals

      Hey hey everyone.

      How are you all?

      This week is going to be all about exam preparations for the school i work at, and yeah.... Everything is upside down now. Me trying to make my students to take things seriously for once but i'm sure in the end they'll pull it off, since exams season is starting.

      Plus we are working on the final school concert and that is the most nerve recking thing we do every single year, showing off to the guests the progression of the students in their musical skills. We'll see how it goes this year. Hopefully better than last year.

      As for the band rehearsals, we doing great as a group. Each time we get together, the bond we have is getting stronger. Recordings for the new cd are going great and our band leader is already working for the third one. I tell him to slow down a bit, xD but his creativity is unreachable. 

      I hope you guys are doing great.

      Have a nice week. 


      P.S. Do you guys have a place where we can talk, like skype or oovoo? Let me know. I wish to get together like that too, instead of just chatting on RT Radio.

    • Vacation and Holiday

      RogueMusicFreak Keeper of Rhythm

      Hey everyone. :D

      How are you all? 

      So i'm on vacation right now, due to Easter. I got to relax from work, and a bit from the rehearsals with the band. Things are going great with the band part. My job on the other hand is getting even more uncertain,to the point of wondering if i and other colleagues of mine will work next school year. "sigh"    sweat

      BUUUUUUT! You know what? Fuck this. Because i have more important stuff to worry right. Like moving to another country. I may be poor for doing this kind of stuuf now. But i have my hopes up that something really good will come up. You never know, right?

       Besides, even if i love working and teaching my students how to "bass", i have come to hate the place i work at. I grew up there, i t was the school i studied there and became my work place, but it's not enough anymore. It doesn't make me feel complete. At first i was feeling disappointed (if you have read some of my previous entries), but now i know that things have change and i must move on. 


      Guys i wish you Happy Easter, and may all the wishes of you heart come true. 

      Cheers to you all. 


      P.S. I will post soon some pics here to see how Greeks celebrate Easter Sunday. ;)

    • Back to Social Scream

      Great news! 

      Yesterday i joined once again the heavy metal band, "Social Scream" as the bassist of the group. The group was about to get disbanded but the lead guitarist and vocalist came in contact with me and some other guys who have joined also and we now formed the new version of the band. This is exciting because finally all the years of working are now paying off. 

      I'm back in action and ready for more. 

    • Common sense lost?

      2 months ago

      RogueMusicFreak Keeper of Rhythm

      Hey guys, how are you all? 

      I hope you are doing well.

      I'll go straight to the point in today's post, because i'm really troubled from some events that took place in just a couple of days. Specifically yesterday and this morning. 

      So... To start a little bit from the beginning. I'm a member of the amatuer theatrical team of Sparta for like 7 months now. I found it pretty cool to try out something new like theatrical plays, seminars, reading monologs and other simiral stuff. I went there in order to learn how to act, and as a extend to that, learn voice acting.  

      Everything were going great until yesterday. Yesterday, we as a team had a general discussion meeting for our next goals towards the summer, what we would like to do, since the theatrical play that took place is over. 

      At the beginning everything went smoothly, talking about stuff and then the first blow up came with something that took place on Facebook. And oh my goodness, the arguement. It wasn't necessarily a minor thing, because it was a copyright issue of the name of our team, being stolen by someone else on Facebook, but the fuss and the reaction that happened next, was childish, if not worse. I don't want to cuss.

      After that, i thought that the spirits were cooled off and everything was going back to a normal discussion. I was so very wrong. What happened next was even worse than the first. There was a racist comment from one team mate to another that was expressed behind their back. I felt heart broken when i learned that this comment was made by a friend of mine, because it didn't hurt only the other but also myself. Although i didn't rush to judge her. Because everyone can do stupid mistakes, right? No one is without sin, shall i say. 

      My point to this matter is that i was not bothered as much by what she said behind the back of other, as i was bothered by the condemnation of the team towards her. They lashed out at her like lions attacking their prey. 

      What bothered me (A LOT) is that the offended person did not approach her before hand to talk to her in person and letting her know that they were offended by what she said. They choose to expose her completely in front of the entire team, hence the extreme reaction from it. 

      I voiced my opinion over this matter, saying that we should not rush to conclusions and that we should give her a chance to defend herself and try to apologize. They did so, but still they were not pleased for what she said, trying to apologize and all of that. Then came the proposal to completely erasing her for being a member. 

      I was and still am very frustrated and very disappointed by all this. Why? Because in the end i came to the conclusion that everyone is for themselves and not for the team. I just can't take this kind of bullshit. (oops i cussed)

      Today, something happened at work and it was in a more personal lvl. 

      I learned that since the government owned us musicians working hours, they gave at the school a few extra working hours. Everything fine with that. Now, my dear colleaques, didn't inform some of us that this good thing happened and they shared with the principal the hours for themselves, leaving me and another colleaque of mine out of it. Now THAT is not fair at all. And i'm really, REALLY pissed off about it because once again, it's all about that little fucking "me" instead of "us". 

      Of course i will talk to the principal about it and ask with what logical terms they dicided to do what they did. For example, i was supposed to work for 14 hours a week and instead of that i work only for 6. Forcing me to exclude 3 students of mine from the lessons in order to work. Now this came up and i was not given any hours at all. It's not only unfair towards me but most of all it's unfair towards the students that were forced to be excluded from my lessons. 

      For crying out loud, what in the world is going on? My head is about to explode at this point. 

      Is really common sense a lost thing? I don't understand how people find it cool to hurt others for their own gain and pleasure. It's just beyond me. I can't even comprehend the fact that these kind of attitudes are so much on the rise. 

      I'm really sorry for this long post. 

      I just needed to let it out somewhere, before i explode. 

      I hope you guys have betters days than i have and that you don't have to deal with these kind of shit in daily basis as i do.
