Rest In Purple

Hello, earlier today I got home from work and had a scroll through Instagram. I started scrolling and got to Travis Barkers post. It was a photo of Prince and when I read the caption I couldn’t believe it. Prince had passed away. I was genuinely shocked and couldn’t believe it, it was so out of the blue. This year has been a bad year for celebrity deaths. We’ve already lost, Alan Rickman, Lemmy and David Bowie. 

Ever since I first heard Prince’s music as a kid growing up in the 80’s I loved it and instantly became a fan. Purple Rain is one of my all time favourite songs. He’s made so many other great songs like When Doves Cry, Rasberry Berret, Little Red Corvette, Kiss, 1999 and all the songs from the Batman 1989 soundtrack which I love. His contribution and influence in music is massive and you can still see that influence now. 

It’s been a sad day for fans and the whole of music. Rest in purple Prince you will be missed, but the music lives on. 

Rest In Purple

If You Haven’t Got Anything Nice To Say, Don’t Say Anything 

Hello, I’m back and I’ve got a few things to get of my chest in the next few blogs, so a couple of new, different blogs coming. I said in The Blog Where It All Begins to expect a pretty honest blog by me so here we go. 

I have a full time job working at a shop and at times it’s like being back at school. People gossip and spread lies like wild fire at times. People get in relationships with people they work with and that’s not always the best idea considering if you break up you still have to work with that person. I myself have been in that situation so I know what I’m talking about. It’s like when we have our Christmas party the talk of the shop the next day is who hooked up with who, who argued or who had a fight. It always happens and not just at that time of year. It’s human nature to talk about people but sometimes it just gets a bit childish and blown out of per portion. I wonder at times if some people have nothing better to talk about. Everyone of us is adults and I just think everyone should be a little more mindful about what they say. Not everyone takes things the same way and people need to realise gossip and rumours can actually have a negative impact on someone. 

I just like to keep myself to myself and only tell stuff to the people I trust which is only a few people to be honest. Like the saying goes “If you haven’t got anything nice to say, don’t say anything.”
