On what devices I use to listen tom muck you ask?  Well, I use many different devices such as my MP3 player, my media player in my phone, and my media player on my computer.  I even listen to music on the FM radio in my car but only on Sunday’s because I love to listen to Gospel Music on my way to work.  The last device I use is the television because I watch a show called “Sucker free” early in the morning on the MTV2 channel.  But out of all the devices that are listed above for music entertainment I mostly use my MP3 player and my cell phone because as we discussed in class MP3 players, cell phones, computers, iPods, or any kind of personal digital audio are becoming more popular when listening, downloading, or recording music than CD players and radio today.  Which I do agree with because every day I see students walking to class with their MP3 players or iPods listening to music.  Which brings be back to the discuss that we had in class today that college students spend 7.5 hours of listening and 23% of it be music alone.  That was interesting to me because that’s something I didn’t know until today, so music is a big part of a students day.

The second question being asked is….”When do I listen to music?”  I listen to music all day every day no matter what I’m doing.  I listen to music when I’m driving in my car because I like to bop as I’m driving I can’t stand siting or riding in complete silence that makes the journey to my destination boring and makes it seem longer then it should be.  I listen to music on my telephone on my media player when I’m taking a shower because I love to sing in the shower.  I’m pretty sure everyone has sung in the shower before singing in the shower makes it more enjoyable than just getting in, washing up, and getting out; music just makes taking a shower or bath more fun.  I listen to music while walking down to the corner store it helps me to stay focused on getting from point A to point B and back to point A especially when I walk to the store in the middle of the night by myself I guess you can say listening to music as I’m walking gives me courage in a way; because I hate walking somewhere by  in the dark with all the problems on the streets.  I also even listen to music as I clean up the house, for example, as I’m washing dishes or vacuuming the floor because I love to sing and dance to my favorite music it makes cleaning up more fun and makes it go by more quickly.  I don’t know its like once I start listening to music I forget about whatever it is that I’m doing at that moment and go straight into auto pilot and don’t even realize what’s going on around me or how fast time fly.

The reason I listen to music is because it helps me to relax when I get mad at someone or something that goes wrong.  Listening to music helps me relax when I’m stressed out over something, for instance, when I’m stressed or mad I would stop whatever it is that I’m doing and just cut on some music either from my MP3 players or on my phone and it would help me focus and calm down on whatever the situation was and find a great solution to that problem.  Another reason I listen to music is that music puts me to sleep when I can’t go to sleep after getting off work at UPS around 4 o’clock in the morning; music really calms my nerves and my body.  The last reason I listen to music is that it’s fun to listen to and it helps me get over some of my personal problems that I have in my life because some the music I listen mostly R&B Music can relate to me.  For example, when I listened to T.I’s song “Live Your Life” it helped me get over one of my emotional problems because what I got out of the song was no matter what it going on right now once it’s in my past leave it there and just live your life because it’s too short to be dwelling on the past.  And that’s why I listen to music it can if you listen hard enough can feed you great information that you and I could use for ourselves.
