Age Alarm: Men in Crisis

Your life seems to be perfect – nice work, ideal wife or girlfriend, pretty children or obedient dog…And then one day you say “enough!”, grab your rucksack and walk away in an unknown direction to search for adventures and crazy love which will fill your life with sense. This phenomenon is called “man’s crisis” and it can occur in different periods of your life.

First chance to turn their life upside down men have when they are somewhere about twenty or a bit older. He can suddenly leave the university, girlfriend, excellent prospects of good carrier for diving somewhere in the waters of Australia, writing a philosophical tractate or dating with a girl with unreliable reputation. The reason is that the society does not give the en a chance to take a break from a constant race. First they need to graduate school, then enter a prestigious university at once, then create business connections and start to build their carrier. “When to live?” ask most young men and through everything away in order to find place for fine deeds in their life.

Ryan Tedder

What are you listening to? I couple of years ago I’ve noticed that most of the songs I really liked turned out to be those of One Republic or written by Ryan Tedder. And it’s still true. I have “Everybody loves me” on repeat in my MP3 player. There are also “Secrets” (even though the song is pretty old) and “Good life”. So I figured how about I write a little something about him: some facts from his biography.

Ryan Benjamin Tedder.

Ryan was born in 1979, in Tulsa, Oklahoma (by the way, it is the city Chandler from “Friends” worked in before he quit 🙂 ). He was raised in the family of missionaries and pastors.

His father started teaching him to play the piano at the age of tree, using Suzuki method (I’d call it “the candy encouragement”). Ryan started singing without any pressure. He was 7 by then and he was copying his favorite singers – Sting, Peter Gabriel, Steve Wonder, etc.

The funniest urban legends ever!

When I was a little girl I was captivated and terrified by urban legends told me by my elder brother Jeremy. I believed that everything described in the legends was true. The stories he told me were very convincing and interesting. I was all ears. My elder brother made me believe in it persuading me that this or that story happened to his friends or people he had known well. I liked it and at the same time it was very scary for me to listen to all this creepy stuff. Later I realized that he was kidding me trying to make an impression on little silly girl.

Then when I was fifteen or so I came across an article on urban legends and found out that some of these creepy stories were real. It shocked me because some of them were really terrible and disgusting.
