Hey, Sgquin! Thanks for the ask! To be honest, I follow people pretty much whenever I see ‘Tumblr’, so I’m not entirely sure how I found you. If I remember correctly, I think we have mutual Facebook friends or something, but I can’t really remember haha Anyways, I got to U of M, if that helps?
I love intelligent conversations, and your question is a great one. Music is hard to define. I think, in essence, it’s sound. But it’s more than that. It’s the way you stop everything you’re doing to listen. It’s the way you choke up even though you’ve heard the song a hundred times before. It’s the way you start dancing around the kitchen like a fool because, at that moment, the sounds you hear make you feel like you can do anything. It’s the way you can remember-more vividly than any picture or video can portray-a time in your life, be it good or bad.
For some, it’s what gets them through the day. Decades ago, it’s what brought people together. Hopefully, our generation can say the same thing someday soon. Oftentimes, it’s the one thing we can consistently count on to truly make us feel alive.
How do you define it?

Friday Afternoon: No worries, I have two more days to do it.
Saturday Morning: Hm, maybe I should at least start on it. NAH! I have time.
Sunday Morning: I should seriously start on my homework.
Sunday Afternoon: /procrastinates more
Sunday Night: OH MY DAMN, IT’S DUE TOMORROW.
And then there’s the sad conclusion if you didn’t finish:
Monday Morning: ”Class, please pass up your homework.”
