Music has always been a part of me since I was a boy. It stimulates me when I'm bored. When ever I'm bored I go on the computer and open windows media player and start playing music. It's fun and I get sucked into it fast. I guess you can say that music makes me "drunk" Well, what affect does music have on you? Does it calm you down? How about keep you awake? Do you get "drunk" when there is music playing?

I guess you can say that music makes me "drunk" sometimes, especially when I'm with my friends. Sometimes we hang out in each other's houses and we go sound-tripping, we listen to all the cheesy corny boyband era music that we listened to back in high school and we just go crazy acting the music video out or something. Music is a bonding mechanism for us. When I'm feeling down, I listen to really sad songs to just marinate myself in the sadness, you know, until I'd have enough of it so I move on. Music fills the boring minutes. It cheers me up, sometimes it inspires me. It's an integral part of my life. It's like I have this really long playlist that is the soundtrack of my life.

It doesn't matter if the music sounds cheesy to you. Music is music and I'm open to listen to any kind. I agree that music is a bonding mechanism. It just brings people together. Thanks!

Certainly, music is a big part of my life. For one, it has a soothing, calming, and relaxing effects on me. It eases my stress and makes me think things over or just lose my self completely. I just seem to flow with its engaging rhythm. Also, it helps me improve my focus. When I study, I try to listen to music because it really helps. To my mind, it helps me absorb vast amounts of information that I need to digest. It is especially helpful when I'm studying for my exams because it insulates me from the distractions around me. It is likewise significant in trying to alter my mood. If I feel a bit bad, it is truly instrumental in making me more upbeat. It seems to have a triggering effect that moves me to act. Undoubtedly, thus, music has various effects on me. Happily, all of its effects are, I feel, beneficial thus far.
