    Music Sharing

      I've got music to help me through every situation. I've got songs that remind me of the good and bad. I'm an 18 year old guy and I have songs that make me cry. I'd love to share music with as many people as possible. Drop a comment or message me!

    My Escape

    I consider music my escape because I don't want to feel emotional pain which when I feel emotional pain it has the effect that I'm useless so when I listen to music it gets my mind off of the problem and negative effects of what other problems I have.

    Skrillex Is My Therapy?

    Yesterday something set me off into a depressive mood. Funny thing is.. It wasnt suppose to be something that would do that. To most it would be minor and it should have been. But I just got so overwhelmed with it and spiraled. Then I played some Skrillex. Yeah I know skrillex...

    The only way I can escape myself,

    and all my problems is through listening and singing to music. Sadly, I'm to shy to sing while anyone's around and only do it when no one else is home. Which equates to only three times a week where I can let go.

    Music Is My Escape From The World!

    I used to not be into music like I am. I use to not even listen to a song a day. But that was when I was 10... Now I'm 15 and listen to music everyday. I love to listen to new music, and old music. My favorites vary by day, how I feel, rainy, sunny, etc.. I will listen to a lot...

    Music has always played a big part in my life

    ever since I was little. It's my way of escapism, indie music works best, it's my favourite type. But it's amazing how anyone can get lost in a song, even by just a few lyrics. Even just one line of the song and people get hooked. I'm that kind of people.

    I Don't Think, I Know

    I know for a fact that music is my one and only escape. I can run away from the world and all my problems when I have music. Music has the power to change your mood and emotions and in a second. I escape from whatever I am feeling through music. Music is the only thing that...

    Music Helped Me In Many Ways

    Every time I listen to music, I let out quite a bit of my darker emotions. I sing along, making the people on the bus stare at me, but I don't care that much. I do try to keep it as quiet as possible, though.I also play the guitar (self-learning) and piano (some years of music...
