Music, the Most Powerful Sound of All

Music can change my perspective on anything and everything.

Music, the Most Powerful Sound of All

Since I was six years old, I've been a musician. I started piano lessons in first grade, and have been singing basically since I could talk. I now play piano, bass, drums, guitar, and sing all the time. I've been blessed to join a band who has produced two CDs and plays every Wednesday night for our youth group.

Any instrument I pick up, I can basically learn how to play with extraordinary ease. Music is my passion, I devote a lot of time and hard work to make improvements in my ability. I spend hours learning new chord shapes on guitar, putting together chord progressions, new piano parts, and writing new lyrics. I love to take the time to learn new instruments and new songs.

Most importantly, I love to listen to music and feel the way it stirs my emotions and how it changes my perspective on parts of my own life. Music is like nothing I've ever experienced before. No matter what I'm going through or what I'm facing, as soon as I pick up that guitar or start writing lyrics, my whole attitude changes.

Music is not only a way to get through life, but it's also a catalyst to good things that have happened in my life. When I joined Chapel, my band, I never would've guessed that we would've released two CDs, played two benefit concerts, and more. I tell most people that Chapel saved my life, because I was facing a lot of dark things when I first joined the band

Although Chapel has been a fun season of my life, I'm getting ready to move on to another season. I'm preparing to go to college, move away from home, and find out who I want to be ten years from now. In all of this change, there is one thing I know for sure, and that's that music will always be a part of me.

No matter where I go, or who I'll be, I know that music will always be a part of who I am. I will play music for as long as I am able, and I will continue to write songs that I hope people all around the world will continue to enjoy.

Music for me is like sports for other people. They graduate high school or college and their career ends, and they can't wait to watch their children become successful (or even pros) in the sport that their parent(s) excelled in. For me, there's nothing I look forward to more than singing and playing instruments with my future kids.

Music is the most powerful and exciting thing I've ever encountered. No matter what is playing, it always manages to change my feelings. It can make me happy, sad, or even angry. It can change my mood from sad to happy and it can make me feel empowered.

I don't know where I'd be without music, but I'm sure glad that I don't ever have to find out!

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
