What is the first thing you do every single day? When did that step in your routine begin?
Actually trying to think about what you do every morning is a hard thing to do. Especially, if you are me and do things quite automatically. But I guess what I do every morning without fail is listen to music.
People honestly do not understand how powerful music is. It can alter a person’s mood just like that.
You’re probably going to think I’m crazy, but when I went to Berlin in 2010 with my school, I forced my friend to sing to me every morning.
You see, the problem was I had wiped my phone of most of it’s music to make space for pictures. I think I damn well nearly went crazy because I hadn’t realised how much I needed music. And not any music, every single genre of music that I was into at the time. Rock, pop, indie, jazz, blues, reggae and the list goes on. I needed it.
The only thing I had on my phone was literally just pop music, which wasn’t great. Especially as I like my music to match my mood. So, I moaned about this for about two days until one of my friends that I was sharing a room with me decided to sing. And from that moment, I knew how I was going to get through this musical drought. I was going to force my friend to sing to me whenever she had the chance.
And it worked. I remained completely sane, and she realised her talent for singing. I say, that was a successful trip.
