Learning Music and Finding Some Fun

Since Josh has started his Math training in his new school he hasn’t any time to practice his keyboard and sometimes he really misses it. When he was in his former school one of his extracurricular subject is Musical Instrument where they study playing their chosen instrument every Saturday for about 2 hours. The objective of the activities is not just having extra grades on their card but learning how to be good in playing musical instruments as well. This way they can have real fun and educational activities in real life not just online. 

Restoring the old fashion music learning is better than the usual online trends nowadays and it also prevents the kids from being too hooked up in computer games. Well my kid sometimes has some funny questions to me when he was just starting to like playing instruments. He used to ask me about the big instruments with horn like french horn mouthpiece and some other with very big ones he always see in parade. Well I just answer him that varied sizes of horn creates varied sounds in music and handling those instruments is just as hard as playing it. Well it’s just a thought.

Gout Relief and Remedy

Anyone that suffers from gout understands the often debilitating pain associated with this disorder. As a result, most people afflicted with this illness look for different ways to reduce the episodes of painful flare-ups. Developing a regimen that helps to reduce these painful symptoms is usually the goal for those who suffer from gout. Relief is often possible through diet and medication.

What is gout?

Gout is a buildup of waste within the body called uric acid. Uric acid forms painful needlelike crystals within the joints and soft tissues of the body causing painful inflammation. This inflammation, in turn, leads to inflammatory arthritis. The symptoms include painful swelling, heat in the affected areas, redness, and stiffness in the joints. Symptoms usually start in the joints of the big toe and can spread to other joints in the body. Uric acid can also collect within the kidneys creating kidney stones.

What causes gout?

Gout is often a genetic disorder meaning many family members can be affected by it. Other contributing factors include weight, age, gender, over-consumption of alcohol, diet, and lead exposure. Even existing health conditions can contribute to the disorder. Just as certain medications and vitamins can lead to gout.


Just as a surgeon with a broken scalpel may need harmonic scalpel repair, a person with gout may need to fix certain aspects of their diet. Avoiding a diet rich in foods that contain purines are the first step. Purines are a natural substance found in certain foods. Once these foods are digested uric acid forms. Maintaining a healthy weight as well as drinking plenty of water are also helpful dietary changes because water reduces the build up of uric acid in the body.

Pain Management

Painful flare-ups can be managed if medication is taken at the onset of pain. Common medications used to control flare-ups are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). These drugs reduce the symptoms and pain associated with a flare-up but do nothing to diminish the underlying condition. Corticosteroids are often used for treatment as well. They can be taken orally or injected into the joints. These drugs provide relief by reducing inflammation which helps alleviate the pain.

Those who suffer from gout can get relief and even diminish the number of painful episodes they experience by avoiding certain foods, maintaining a healthy weight, and taking medications that reduce inflammation. Paying attention to your diet and taking medication at the start of a flare-up can often help reduce the amount of discomfort and pain associated with this disorder.

Change Your Life by Changing Your Job

Many individuals feel unsatisfied with their life. One of the things that leads to this dissatisfaction is their job. They go to a job where they are not challenged. They do not feel happy with the amount of money they make, and they feel like nothing will ever change. When a person is in the situation, they lose their joy in life. If you want to change your life, start taking steps now so that you can change your job.

One of the biggest things that you are going to have to overcome when changing your job is fear. Many individuals fear the unknown. They wonder what will happen if they quit their current job. They wonder what else they will do in order to provide for their family. And while you need to make sure that you are responsible when it comes to your job change, overcoming fear is the first step to actually making it happen. Don't be scared to try something new. In addition to getting over fear, you also need to get over self-doubt. It is so common for individuals to talk themselves out of living a better life because of negativity. Be positive and your life will start to change in positive ways.

One option that you may consider is pursuing higher education while you stay at your current job. This may qualify you for other jobs where you would feel more satisfied and possibly earn more money. You can take an online class in the evening or on the weekends. Or you can even attend a local college during the time you are not at work. If you start taking steps now to qualify for a job that you will love, you will soon be in a position to make a job change.

Another idea is to start looking for jobs that you already qualify for or that provide training on the job. For example, there are a lot of manufacturers looking for reps. They provide training for their employees. If you start submitting applications and going through the interview process now, quite literally in a couple of weeks you could be doing a job that is much more enjoyable.

Do not let circumstances push you into keeping a job you do not like. Think about what you really want to do and then take steps to do it.

Another Musical Instrument to Learn and Play

It’s the Industrial Engineering week in my daughter’s university and though she wants to be included in their band performance in playing guitar, beat box or keyboards she was assigned to play drums. That’s a real surprise to Gen because she has never played that kind of instrument since she started playing musical instruments. She was so busy with her preferred string instruments and in her piano playing that she really ignored the drums. 

Well the drums are for Josh anyway so it’s not really Gen’s priority. Now her section is really keen on making her play drums on their performance night that she’s forced to learn in one or two days. Wow can you beat that? Well it seems that she has no choice now and should follow their leader which prompted her to go over music friend site for some information on the required drums instrument. I told her like any Mom should be saying that she can do it and will pass with flying colors. She smiled but thinking on how she would make time for the practice because it’s their examination week these days.
