So this morning my mom walked into my room to find me singing and dancing to this:
Anyways, I've been listening to music so much lately, and I can safely and honestly say that I am in a complete affair with my
iPod. Seriously, music just makes me so happy. I love that I have a song for everything: a song to listen to when I feel like dancing, a song to listen to when I'm sad and want to wallow in my sadness, a song to fall asleep to, just a song for every feeling.
I really fell in love with music last August. Before that, I felt kind of uninspired: I mostly listened to the garbage on the radio, but it really didn't cut it for me. Like, I didn't even want to listen to my
iPod ever because I got tired of it so quickly. I mean, if you've listened to the radio before you (hopefully) know what I mean. In August (while I was in Europe to be specific; what better time?!), I discovered my now-favorite band, Muse, and it's just been an amazing journey ever since.
What I love most about music is just the variety! For a while, I was stuck mostly to one genre, but the best part is just finding something different than what you're used to and loving it! One second I can listen to something like Arctic Monkeys or The Wombats (British indie), then completely switch gears and jam out to Journey and
Aerosmith (not to mention Elton John :P). And finding a new favorite band? Or when a favorite band releases a new album? Awesome.
Music is just so powerful. It can change lives, it helps people get through difficulties, pain, anything. It's pure art.
