Music Is My Substance

by: Alessandra (Aliamanu) age 13

Listening to music helps me to let off steam. While waiting around, I like to turn the music on and block out the world around me. When I want to get away from my thoughts and worries or problems, I put my ear buds on and everything becomes calm and peaceful. I could be having a bad day and music could lighten up my mood. Music also helps me fall asleep. My body turns off as I drift off to sleep listening to music.
