Have you ever thought of how much time we spend in school? Think about it kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade, fourth grade, fifth grade, sixth grade, seventh grade, eighth grade, ninth grade, tenth grade, eleventh grade, and twelfth grade, plus roughly four years of college. That’s about 17 years of school, if not more. That’s a LOT of time, and what do we learn all those years? We learn things that we may never use, that we may never need to know, and that will not help us become successful. So why do we learn it? We learn it because someone somewhere thought that we should learn it, even if it won’t be applicable to our daily lives. But when you really think about it certain people can spend even more time than normal at their school, especially in high school. You can take a lot of extra curricular’s and those extras usually involve spending more time in a school than you would want. So why the extra stuff? Well, most kids want to do something besides homework after school, something they actually enjoy, so they start a club, others just want to do it because it will look good on their college applications.Yet all of this time that we have, we spend learning things we may not need ever in our entire lives, so why is it important?
Music is a constant. It’s always there. You can’t touch it, but you can feel it. The beat of the music decides your mood for the entirety of the song. And there’s always that one song that you hear by accident that brightens your entire day or gives you a brand new perspective on life. Music is used for entertainment, comfort, as a mood booster, and an overall expression of life. The meaning behind a song can shine through just at the right times in someone’s life. The creation and distribution of music in todays day and age is mostly about money, but every once in a while you can find that one band that you know doesn’t care about the money and they just want to make music for the sake of making music. That drive, that ambition to do something because you love it makes the music better, makes the reason for listening better, and brings more joy to people’s lives. That idea of perfect happiness seems to only be reached when the perfect music is playing. Music is the sound track to life and everyone’s is different, so why not share your amazing sound track with others, maybe you’ll lead them to a song that makes every one of their problems disappear. Wouldn’t it be great to be the reason that someone is happy for the first time in a long time?
As most of the internet knows being young usually means that people don’t usually take your ideas and thoughts seriously, which is why I wanted to start a blog. My day today was pretty bad, I got back some bad tests, I had a guy I thought was my friend make me have a mental break down, and as always a feeling of depression sank in. Although it didn’t last for long, it still appeared, and that was enough to tell me to channel my emotions into something, and what better to do that then to rant on a website to people I don’t know and will probably never meet. Anyways, here we are. The very beginning of an internet journey that will eventually end. Well enough about me, enjoy yourself internet.
