From what I have heard, philosophers have said that music tells time, it tells stories about generations, the cultures history, how the world has changed from then, or how the world was changing when the song or music was being made. Music has its own timeline when you think about it, it includes important parts about it, how its changed, or what made it change.
I believed my life was pre-determined the moment I began college. The five-year plan I constructed detailed how I was going to graduate with a computer science degree in three years and become head of a tech start-up company. I was going to be a female Mark Zuckerberg by the time I was 25, and nothing could stop me. My world was meticulously ordered down to the minute. So when that plan failed spectacularly, I was destroyed. The life I had set out for myself unraveled before my eyes I could do nothing about it. Worse still was that the failure was my own doing.
Now, the laid back southern life to me, is the way to go! No one is ever in a hurry it seems, just moseying along at their own tempo of life. Sitting back relaxing in the yard with family and friends talking about everything under the sky, laughing and cutting up with one another, having a cook-out or a late night bonfire enjoying the night air, sippin’ on some sweet tea, is what is special in my heart.
What is it like growing up in Texas? I have people always state that their home state is the best place to grow up, but I can honestly say where I grew up was the best. We had some much to do and so much to see. Texas has some amazing history in almost every city. I was born March 20, 1991, on the first day of spring. It was a sixty-nine degrees day. I weighed in at seven pounds two and a half ounces. Texas usually has fantastic weather, so growing up there was a dream. When I say fantastic weather I mean we had every season in one day. Sometimes it got crazy but I would not have it any other way.
Songs can connect with how we feel and our experiences. Music has been a major part of my life ever since I was just a toddler. For me music has helped me express what I am feeling and who I am as a person. My therapy has been music, it has helped me through almost every problem I have faced. With listening to the song lyrics, we can get a true understanding of what the artist is trying to tell us.
Music has brought humans together for century's. Woodstock was no different, it might not have gone to plan but it brought people together. The event was seen by most as a dirty,drug filled, hippie gathering and others, well the others were the ones who went to Woodstock. Some things wood stock faced such as a struggle to land a solid venue, keep customers from camping out, and even get performers to stage is what made this concert so special.
“We are going to Gatlinburg, Tennessee this summer!” my mom said. My sister and I were very excited to go somewhere for the first time during the summer! My aunt Cheryl and her boyfriend Scott.
It all began after my first semester here at A&M. I was somewhat disappointed because I had hoped to meet lots of new people and make new friends but that wasn’t exactly the case. You hear how people make some of their truest and lifelong friends in college however, after my first semester I still didn’t have any friends here. It was hard because I moved here from Idaho so I was completely starting over and also because I was fairly shy. So here was my first summer in Texas and I didn’t have anyone to enjoy it with. That’s when I decided to get a job to hopefully make friends that way. I started applying for several places online and then one day I got a call from Texas Roadhouse asking if I could come in for an interview. I had no idea that very phone call was about to change my life for the better! At first I had no idea
Middle Tennessee, otherwise known as the city of Nashville, is full of places to adventure and explore. Though I have not lived here long, I have caught a slight glimpse of all the area has to offer and will only discover more as the years go on. Lucky for me, I had an assignment to go visit at least two of the top ten place in Middle Tennessee to visit and was able to dive into some of the history and culture in Nashville.
My first experience at the Carolina Country Music Fest was extraordinary. It all started Friday after my friends and I unpacked our stuff at the hotel. After we brief catching up we departed to the Carolina Country Music Fest. During the walk our anticipation grew; Keith Urban was going to plan in less than an hour! As we arrived to the venue, our wrist bands were scanned and we rushed to the stage. Keith Urban performance was spectacular; soon thereafter we headed back to the hotel. The next morning when I woke up I quickly scanned the artists for the day. Come to find out Chase Rice, Chase Bryant and Tim McGraw were going to be playing! To pass the time we walked around Ocean Boulevard. As the artists set up for the show, we went to secure
I had no idea about what I was going to find in Little Rock. First of all, I have been enjoying my groups company, I feel that we’re more close and united after that trip. Therefore, I liked a lot traveling there with them and I also adored the highway. It’s wonderful to admire nature while you are on the road, it reminded me some speedways in Mexico.
I worked for goodwill. They contract out to other businesses to help disabled, special needs an felons. Sometimes it is hard for certain people in life to get jobs. It is called Rock-Tenn, they recycle trash. They ran the trash down a conveyor belt. Sometimes it felt like the line was going 80 miles an hour. I had too get four different items: #1 plastic jugs, mainly hard plastic items. There was a bend in front of me an that is where the plastic went. #2 Is paper I had a bend on the right side of me for it. #3 card board the bend for that was behind me. #4 was trash I had two trash cans on the left side of me. I would have too get big pieces of metal, alumina , an sometimes pieces of a car would come through. I believe I most enjoyed it because
Everything was black until my rude awakening. I woke up to the sound of my alarm clock shrieking like no tomorrow. I throw myself out of my bed trying not to fall back asleep. I think to myself, Great, another day of school, and that was my first thought, the first thing I thought about the day, but what I would be thinking later would be much worse. Tomorrow I have my first geometry unit and next week I would be having my first geometry quiz. I walk upstairs, because my room is in the basement, and I open the door to find my dad sitting at the table. “Good morning,” he exclaimed, as I start to put on my ID. My dad usually has a great attitude in the morning, which is kind of ironic to me because usually people are cranky in the morning.
Last weekend on the 16th I went to see Chance the Rapper at the Rave with two of my friends. It was a last minute decision but it was definitely worth it. Chance doesn’t sing the type of music that we are learning about in class, and normally I don’t usually listen to that kind of music, but I had a great time there. I am more of a country person but I am always open to new things. Chance the Rapper would be considered a vocal soloist, he sings by himself on stage but he does have a band behind him. Although I only knew a couple of his songs I still enjoyed being there, his performance gave everyone such a rush. People were excited for the openers but once Chance came out you could feel the level of energy go up. Everyone being packed together
Several years ago, I found myself riding in the passenger seat of my family’s car, riding west towards Canton, Mississippi. At around four o-clock that morning, my mom had received a phone call from the hospital regarding her father, who had been admitted that morning after accidentally overdosing on his numerous medications. A few minutes later, we were on the road to Mississippi. When we finally arrived in Mississippi, there were several cars in my grandad’s parking lot. My mom got out, and told me to stay in the car. After what seemed like an eternity, my mom finally walks out of the car and gets back in the car. That which sets my heart on fire, although not in a positive, passionate way, is the way my mom broke into tears that day.
