    It's like the best thing.

    You can create a hell of amazing things. I dream of loads of things and I get goosebumps when I enjoy it, the best time to do it when it's night time in bed. Gets you asleep straight away.

    I have youtube rolling on the computer

    since I lost my iPod for complicated reasons. On right now is: Marianas Trench, "Ever After" from their Ever After CD. Thank you Megan P., a good friend, for introducing me to this amazing band. I owe her one.

    I had a pair of Bose noise cancelling ear buds

    that broke. Looking to replace them with headphones that have good bass and clear sound. Just too many to choose from!

    who detest and confront you, that it is 'Time Out.'

    If you talk to me and I make no effort to take

    my headphones off, please understand that means: I really, REALLY do not want to talk to you right now. Please try again later.

    Sometimes when I don't want to talk to people,

    I just put on my headphones (even though they're not connected to anything, and there's no music playing) and pretend I can't hear them. And nod my head to a random beat.

    Then listen to the lyrics. The storyline in the song. Then try to visualize it. In my mind Im the main character of the song. Billie Jean is not my lover. I should've listened to what my mama told me. I experience the pain, the happiness, everything. I keep those 'experiences...

    where my ex and I would just listen together while cuddling at night. It's fascinating how all it takes is one song to simply bring back one thousand memories.

    I wake up, grab coffee put my headphones on

    and get lost in my "song of the day." Surely, I'm not the only person who has one of those. It's getting lost inside the lyrics, each guitar, fiddle, and percussion. It's an enlightening experience. Today: https://youtu.be/APjVO-COYog

    Sometimes, you just feel tired; you feel weak.

    And when you feel weak, you feel like you just wanna give up. But chu gotta search within you. You gotta find that inner strength and just pull that's **** outta you. And get that motivation to not give up and not be a quitter! Who can name this hip-hop song intro

    stop for school but then I realize I can't find my earphones ( goes into panic mode) "NoNoNo don't do this to me. PLEASE I'M BEGGING YOU"... It became a silent and awkward world for me... It lasted for 3 days till I got new ones and certainly hope I don't lose my phone either...

    I cannot imagine a world without music.

    I really believe that music has healing powers :) There are times when I am not in the mood to talk to anyone or to even get out of bed. But I am always in the mood to put my headphones on, to listen to my favorite music and to think about whatever.
