    A few weeks back I've bought my first car yay.

    A opel astra h gtc 1.6 Coupe and I'm in love with it. There's nothing better than getting into my car, connecting the aux cable and turn on my favorite music for my car ride. Now if only gas wouldn't be that damn expensive.

    I'm leaving soon for a much needed trip

    and I cannot wait to make my playlist. I want songs that I can sing at the top of my lungs while driving down the open road.There is nothing like taking off in the car all by myself with all of my favorite songs ready to be sung. Each song usually has something relatable or...

    I turn it up as loud as possible, makes me actually feel more relaxed because it absolves me from having to the do the obligatory "pulling over".... I always get where I going ... Cause I never heard the sirens. (**zenzenzend**)

    My younger sister thinks I'm weird

    because when I have a headache I tell everyone to be quiet and raise the volume to the music. Music actually makes my headaches go away.

    Especially when I'm alone.

    Such a great stress reliever and energizing at the same time! I dance and sing, laugh at the weird looks. Good times ;-)

    I drive a long way everyday.

    I love to either get on satellite radio or plugin my ipod. When I do, I crank it up, and I am definitely singing my heart out. I love to crank it up!

    I commute - anywhere from 1 to 2 hours - each

    way, so it's a necessity for me. It helps me stay awake. I love listening to music.

    You know when you stop at a red light

    and in your peripheral vision you see quite some motion in the vehicle next to you and hear quite the expressive music, so you casually glance over, to see a young lady being completely dramatic? Sometimes I wish I was the one glancing over at the weirdo, but this time, I was...

    When I say I like it loud,

    I mean it! If I can hear myself singing, it's not loud enough. I've heard me sing, it needs to be covered up.......... I hate what I call "Dumb Thumpers", you know...no real music, just a bass sound that thumps the ground and rattles their vehicle... I'm convinced it has the...

    I love to sing and dance

    while driving. lol. People driving by me either usually give me weird looks because I am completely of pitch probably or laugh and join in. I find it so much fun to just drive around windows down- it relaxes me. Is that weird? OHH Well if it does!

    Someone once asked me.

    ..... Is your accelerator somehow connected to the volume on the stereo???? Truth is i often have moments when the only way to release tension is to crank it up & just drive!! I love it!! :-)
