Dear Over-Stimulative Music,
A lot of people have a lot of different opinions regarding you.
In fact, a lot of people have completely different definitions of you set in their own minds, ones based off of personal preferences or thoughts imposed by others.
Growing up means that summers start to become extensions of school. SAT classes, the next level of math, summer homework, maybe even remedial courses at school itself- after the ninth or tenth grade, summer break tends to be not as much of a break as it used to be.
I remember that when I was a kid, my biggest worry used to be the boredom that came with summer. My parents would sign me up for summer camps for a few weeks here and there (science camp rules!), but when I wasn’t at one of those camps, I would just be spending time at home. I’ve always been the type of person that needs to be consistently doing something, and back then, I didn’t quite know how to really entertain myself.
Am I the only one that imagines the soundtrack to my life?
I like to think of my life as a movie of sorts. I have my own story to live out as I grow older and discover new things. I’ll face challenges, but that’s okay, because in the end I know that they’ll help make me stronger.
And of course, every good movie has to have a fantabulous soundtrack, right?
