Update Sep - Oct 20th 2017

Whats up everyone

Quick update on what I've been up to. So far building a website + finding a grad job has been very challenging. I'm at the point right now where I've been concentrating on trying to find a good grad job to set up for next year, hence the slow uploads. I've been getting a few interviews but no follow through, Next week though I have an assessment center/ interview with a big blasting company/ distributor for their graduate program and I've been preparing for that. I will definitely get it.Ā Ā 

Now on music, I've seem to come across a "beat block", but I want to redefine my personal block asĀ having aĀ "boredom" for the current sounds I have. As I've previously stated, I have a big love for NEXUS 2 and MASSIVE, however I need to expand my sounds to get into the vibe more. Either that or all of this job hunting got me stressed out hahaha.

Anyways, that's pretty much it. I really feel for the current and recent grads who weren't lucky enough to land a position at the company they wanted, but hey we all learn. Hope my area gets NBN soon, GANG SHEE SQUA SHEEE LESS GOOO.

Regards,

Thoughts on Personal Development & Christianity

Hello lovers of music and life. I'm Joey or "Katabok".

I was wasting time on YouTube the other day and came upon a series of videos that lead to a particular video of a man talking about how learning personal development to get with chicks and "manipulate" them is a complete waste of time and is of the devil.The "personal development/RSD people" come from a very different reality than "Christians/ believers in Christ" and I just want to point that out.

Again, I just want to point out that Christians believe in the "removal of self" while the definition of "personal development" speaks for itself. I guess people can look into this in their own time. I'm a christian, but I do like some of the personal development concepts "keep achieving something greater/keep the betterment of mankind". Both have similarities.

Off topic but I see a lot of Christians who are "inexperienced with girls" say that they are waiting on GOD for the perfect one. I think that those people are taking shit too seriously like that story where some guy was stranded on top of the roof of his house during a flood and asked god to save him. A boat came and offered to save him, he kept praying and waiting on god, a helicopter came to save him and he kept on praying and waiting on GOD. In the end he died. He went to heaven and asked God why didn't he save him, god said I sent you a boat and a helicopter.....

A bit of advice on social stuff can help. People be taking shit waaay to serious and making life harder for themselves, aren't we as Christians taught that God always gives people chances? We ARE humans and WE CANĀ afford to make mistakes. Take for me, I probably shouldn't have studied Mining Engineering in a broken mining economy, Luckily during University I took the time to learn music production and the software required to do so (SHOUT OUT FL STUDIO YOU CHANGED MY LIFE).Ā Just learning to take a step towards what you want can be difficult but "fuck all that talk and lets do it" - Ugly God. We're all equal in death.

Kind Regards,

Thoughts On Life In The Year 2017

Hello music lovers. I'm Joey or "Katabok".

A little bit different topic today, just want to share my thoughts on life. So it was my dads birthday this week (25 July) and he's now 51 years of age (middle aged father). Now my dad has had a various amount of health conditions, heart attack, high blood pressure and cholesterol level. SomeĀ conditions and genetic factors may beĀ hereditary, My grandmother (his mum) had diabetes (recently deceased at 70 RIP) and his father died at 50 from a bad surgery (RIP). My dads brother died at 40 from a heart attack due to stress/anxiety and smoking. It really seems like the males in my family die at a somewhat relatively earlier ageĀ in comparison to a normal males from a 1st world country (I was born in Medan, Indonesia).

It's not a good thought but, I'm grateful that god has allowed my dad to live on until now. Coincidental story was that my mum and dad went to Israel for a holiday 2 years back. My dad was drinking the famed Jerusalem "Canaan" wine (he brought it back and it was tastey as fuck, taste like honey!"). Apparently the doctors think that the Wine triggered a reaction in his body and his heart started to hurt, he told me having a heart attack felt like there was something continuously pressing on his chest and that it's really hard to breathe. Now this is where the coincidenceĀ happens, the area he was in when having the heart attack had the BEST heartĀ surgeonsĀ in the WHOLE WORLD, and they fixed him up successfully! Coincidence? GODS WILL?Ā The doctors later found out that his arteries were 90% blocked!!!! (WHAT TEH FUCK). All this time he's been somehow walking around with heavily blocked arteries.....Ā LUCKILY AGAINĀ he had holiday insurance cover! and so the medical fees were all expenses paid, since he was also a Australian CitizenĀ he was treated as a top priority patient.

Since he turned 51 this year (25 July 2017), I was thinking about how fickle life really is. How long has he got left to live? What can I DOĀ in the next 5-10 YEARSĀ to make him proud & live easier?!? I'm 22 now, and I have literally nothing to my name. I hope I canĀ DO SOMETHINGĀ with my life and make a impact or difference in my community within the next 10 years. I HOPE my parents live long enough to see their futureĀ GrandĀ children.

Kind Regards,

Katabok
