I’m gonna be her prize fighter. I know that she’s out of my league. I’m gonna be her prize fighter. My uniform has been decreed.

Hi hey hello,

I hope you had a great Tuesday! Mine was long.. as always, but it was so very productive. I got a bunch of homework done, and I figured out what I have to do to get some things done on time! Gotta love that!

Anyway, I was reading on The College Prepster about where she likes to think, and where she gets the most inspiration. One of the places she mentioned was the movies. I have to agree. Ever since I went and saw The Perks of Being a Wallflower, so much about me has been inspired, my music has been inspired, my attire has been inspired, and my thought life has been inspired and that got me thinking. How much do these things really impact us, without even thinking about it?

So, a big part of this movie is misfits and kids who listen to older music, that is not the top 40. Due to that, I have been listening almost exclusively to older music… and the Killers and Neon Trees. I don’t even know why. I mean, it’s all great music, but it changed so drastically. It isn’t bad by any means, but if something that innocent changed, what else is the music, movies, television, and society we subject ourselves to changing?

I don’t know about you, but music does affect me rather drastically. It affects how I feel and my outlook, that is why when I am sad, I try to listen to happy music. When I am upset, I listen to calming music. Music is so engrained into my generation, it’s insane. Looking around campus, 2 in 3 people have their earbuds in jamming to their latest favorite. Even now, I am jamming out to some Battle Born. It is so crazy how much that affects us!

What do you think about that?
