I couldn't think of anything to write about, so I decided to write about the first that came to my head. And that first thing happened to be music, simply because I'm listening to a movie soundtrack right now.

Despite all the complaining people in positions of authority are doing over iPods in classes, most people like music. I mean, who doesn't? I'm sure there's at least some kind of music style that speaks to you, whether you're a die-hard Greenday fan or one of those people who only listens to music while riding in someone else's car. The thing is, there's a time for everything. That's what people that are constantly plugged into their iPod, whether they are in class, at the dinner table or at teh doctor's office, fail to understand. And this is just personal opinion, of course, but I believe that it is impossible to fully enjoy your music, if you're listening to it 24/7.

I've never been crazy about music as a child. I listened to it in the car, of course, but I never collected CDs or went crazy over boy bands. It was only in grade eight, when I got my first iPod for Christmas, that my passion for music started developping. And now... My taste in music is a bit ecclectic. I like the top 40, country, rap, broadway/theatre songs, soul, jazz... I can find something I like in every genre of music, though the reverse is also true- there's a lot of songs that do not speak to me at all. So really it's not about the gerne of the music, it's about the type of song, the beat of it, the lyrics...

What is it that draws me to one song and not to another one? That I do not know. Why do we like some things and do not like other things? That is one of the mysteries of the human brain, one that the scientists were unable to crack just yet.
