    My Essential Survival Kit

    Music has been my savior on more than one occasion. I've always got something playing, wherever I am. I mostly listen to heavy metal, sad and depressing music. Some of the essential artists I always have on me are, Deftones, Staind, Soulfly, Snot, Tool, DevilDriver. Those are...

    If it weren't for a select playlist each day,

    I don't know if I would still be here. Although it doesn't help with me not wanting to be here.....

    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!

    I love listening to music in the morning

    before I go school and if I don't my whole day will go bleh! Music is my happy place. My world. My freedom. My soul. My life. It blocks out all the bad thing and replace them with the good things.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    It's Essential

    I have two mediums that get me through each and every day: Talk radio segments or podcasts from iTunes and music.  Music is good at gearing me up and giving me a lift.  I have a very mixed selection of music on my iPod.  I can easily go from listening to the Ramones to John...
