The One Where It Plays

Journal Entry #2: Playlist

Don’t you hate the feeling of being unappreciated? I mean, do you sometimes feel like nobody cares about you - the things that make you extremely happy or mad?

Or even the type of music that you listen to? Sometimes? Most of the time? Always?

Well, I’m not saying this out of self-pity but I do feel like I am taken for granted too often.

There are times when I talk to my friends about the things that I am passionate about and they’d just let me finish talking and then they’d carelessly respond with “mmmkay”, “that’s nice”, “cool”. There are even moments that it’s as if my friends didn’t hear me. This happens to me often, especially when I try to share the music that I listen to.

You see, I believe that the type of music that you listen to reflects your sentiments, beliefs, perspective, personality, and YOUR THOUGHTS.

So maybe, appreciation of music is subjective but I guess caring about what your friend likes is what matters especially when it comes to music because the songs that your friends listen to might be giving hints on the things that are going on in their lives.

When words cease to explain our thoughts that is when music comes to our aid.

I was fortunate to have at least one friend who REALLY TAKES TIME TO LISTEN to the songs and music that I recommend.

This friend, let’s just call her Katherine, inspired me to become the aspiring songwriter that I am today. We have a lot in common & I feel so grateful that I met her.

We haven’t seen each other in such a long time and I guess I just missed talking to her.

Here’s a list of some of the songs that I love listening to. It’s not much but I hope you like the songs that are in the list.
