    Relief Of The Pressure

    When I get very angry, sad or anxious....I find that the right music can manage to calm me down and bring me back to center.  I seem to suffer from a mental clog when I get affected enough by a situation.  If I sit and listen to music (that is if I can find a chance to...

    Whenever my parents are fighting with me

    or each other or anyone I just simply put my headphones in and ignore them. They adventually go away and stop fighting. Music also helps me stay incontrol when I feel down and out. It helps me realize stuff. I just love music.

    When things go wrong

    and I feel like I have no one, I go to music it helps me feel better and helps me relax. It makes me feel that even for that short amount of time all my problems can just disappear and I can pretend that everything in the world is fine. It helps me escape from reality and eases...

    A Theme Song For My Soul.

    Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness. ~Maya Angelou Music takes me where words can not. Music does not judge me or patronize me. Music empowers and defines, words wind around moments and memories. Each time...

    By this headline, you would think i'm upset

    about something, and then you would be expecting to read some type of long rant about something that happened to me today. However, this is not the case. I'm totally happy. I'm just frustrated that I can't get the shading right on the drawing i'm doing.

    "Bad day, looking for a way home,

    looking for the great escape. Gets in his car and drives away, far from all the things that we are. Puts on a smile and breathes it in and breathes it out, he says, bye bye bye to all of the noise"

    Listen To Music

    I listen to music all the time, especially when i can't sleep. I just turn on my Mp3 player and lay on my bed and let the music lure me to sleep. My Mp3 player always running out of battery. :( Hate it when this happened.

    that relate to your own emotions and situations in life.

    This song draws me to

    such a dark place... So save your breath, I will not care. I think I made it very clear. You couldn't hate enough to love. Is that supposed to be enough? I only wish you weren't my friend. Then I could hurt you in the end. I never claimed to be a saint... Ooh, my own was...

    Angry Music

    You can telly mood by the music that gets played. Usually I play classics or golden oldies, but if the heavy metal goes on- or even worse, the Wagner - just quietly leave me alone till I get over it.
