Nice Job. My stomach is rumbling, that burger sounds great. Going out to eat can be a pain, but it tastes great

Great Job. You put a ton of emotion into this piece, and put your thoughts very clearly onto “paper”.

Music, for me, really helps for getting pumped for games, and chilling out afterwards. You ellaberated very well on that, and you explained why music is so important. Nice job.

I also have songs that really very from crazy to calm. It’s kinda weird though that people enjoy the different types of music if you think about it a little. Anyway, great job.

It’s cool how you associate some music to an experience you had with those nomads. That’s pretty cool. Great job explaining everything well.

Music is always a good way to turn if you’re feeling stressed. I couldn’t agree more with this statement. When ever I feel stressed I listen to music and just let the stress slide off of my back. That Social Studies Exam was also a long test. Great job

It’s cool to hear how you started your music “career,” and that you were surrounded by music since you were little. It’s also impressive that you picked up a piano at such a young age (it’s a bit heavy for me)
Toggle Commented Feb 24, 2019 on Music In My Life at 2020 Lanzendorf
I completely agree. I normally don’t think about how much I listen to music and how important it is to my life. While I can’t relate to playing the guitar and making music with friends, it sounds quite fun. Great post.
Toggle Commented Feb 24, 2019 on What Music Means to Me at 2020 Lisa
Nice job. You did a great job of expressing what role music has in your life, and explaining how important it is for those roadblocks to be cleared.
This was very focused around emotions and who music could alter them or make them stronger, which is something unique that people don’t normally talk about when talking about music.

I have no idea how you survived without headphones. But on a serious note, I liked how you started by saying you didn’t listen to music all that much, but later started to get into it more. Then, you kinda took us on a journey through your “music story.” Nice job.
