    It's True!

    I don't know how I got into this predicament, but if I don't listen to music everyday it's like the stars out of alignment. The world isn't right. I can only guess that the sound of music keeps my soul alive the way that air keeps me breathing and alive. Music is in my core, my...

    Listening At Work

    I am an inside employee at Sonic drive in, and most of the time they play pretty good music. I work the switchboard, and have learned which stations I can listen to the radio on. I usually get scolded by my boss, but occasionally she'll put on the other headset and listen too!

    All The Time, Too

    it drowns out construction work, barking dogs, it inspires me to go on (esp reggae), it reminds me that I am alive, still, it drowns out my bad thoughts and comforts my troubled emotions.

    Dancing In The Kitchen

    I love to turn on my music and dance in the kitchen or just sit at the table and listen. I like different genres and decades of music and always open to listening to something new. Music does so much for me, it calms me while at the same time energizes me. It helps me express my...

    I Love Music

    I love music so much that I find that I have to have my Ipod everywhere with me or I become overwhelm by everything. I find sometimes the outside noise becomes too much and that music calms me down.
