Okay, so let me clear this up for you: I like music, yes. But it's not my life. I've never had that need to be listening to it 24/7. Most of all my friends/family are listening to music all the time. But I just don't find it interesting enough. It's like watching a movie that you've seen way too many times, so you turn it off half-way through. Yes, music "Expresses" feelings, yes, music "Inspires," But I have a lot more interesting things to be doing than listening to some words with instruments in the background.
Now, don't get me wrong, let me repeat this again: I like listening to music. SOMETIMES. But I find it too distracting. I'll be reading, and then music will come on. I'll start listening to the music, and my eyes will just pass over the words on the book over and over again, but not taking it in. It gets annoying. Okay, yes, I do like music when I'm drawing. It brings inspiration and tranquility.
Maybe it's just because I don't have the proper music player. My PSP is useful, but 1: I don't have headphones. 2: It's too big to be carrying around. 3: It's not loud enough. Etc. Maybe if I had an iPod or something, I would listen to music more. I have an MP3, but it annoys me for some reason. I only use my MP3 to record things, really.
Maybe I'm just defective for not liking music. And that's the thing, too. I feel like I'm supposed to like music, but it's really not that important to me. *Sigh* I feel abnormal for being this way. I feel weird. I mean, pretty much everyone I know is a HUGE fan of music, and I'm over reading in a corner, trying to concentrate on these little letters on a book that I can't register because of the music, wishing that they would turn it off. And I'm picky about my music, too. I hate the new "popular" stuff, like Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, etc. I prefer sticking to my Beatles and Abba, thank you very much. When someone presents me to a new song, I'll probably crinkle my nose in distaste.
*Sigh* I don't like this music disliker person that I am. But it's hard to change it.
