When was the last time you listened to the radio? Are you the one to plug in your iPod through a cord to hook into your little car radio? My friend has one of those for her car, it’s pretty badass. I remember when I was a kid going to St. Louis, for hospital trips to Shriner’s. The radio was the best thing for us all. The radio kept us somewhat quiet during the trip, until one of our favorite songs came in then it was horror the way to our destination. Because certain people didn’t want anyone to be talking during the song was on.

Last year, we went to St. Louis, and this was our first time were both my sister and I had our iPods plugged into us. We didn’t have to argue about switching radio stations because we hated a song that was playing. She was listening to Justin Bieber and I was listening to Linkin Park. Mom and dad had ahold of the radio the whole way, well I have to take that back. Mom had ahold of the radio. Anyways, seems like nobody wants to listen to the radio anymore. Too old school for everybody. I go back and forth on listening to my iPod and listening to what’s on the radio.

Since my music changes hour by hour, I could be in the mood for rap, pop, and rock at any day. It just depends. When listening to the radio, especially countdown radio stations, they’re an upbeat, pop kind of station. Hardly no rock music. We have the Sirius XM Channels on our TV’s so I am constantly on there and listening in on different channels. I love the Morning Mash Up and the people who run that day-to-day. They are hilarious. They are just amazing to listen to in the mornings. They will definitely get you into a good mood if you’re in a not so good mood. Another channel I can not get enough is Sirius XM Octane. Around noon, I am usually listening to them. Starts my afternoon out great, and my evenings too.

I’m such a music fiend that I can go from my iPod one minute, my TV to the next half hour, then lastly my Spotify account. I love my Spotify account. I’ve got to enjoy different music from there. They have some soundtracks and some tunes I haven’t heard in a while. Yesterday, my Spotify account was replaced with iHeartRadio. When my friend Kate and I were looking to listen to SixxSense, the link to listen to that station took me to iHeartRadio website. Let’s just say, I am in love with it already. It is really easy to use, but you have to take some chances. I have five stations that I can’t stop listening to. I heart SixxSense (of course), Rock Nation, Rock Nation: Top 20 Hits, Linkin Park Radio, and Christina Aguilera Radio. I must have some pop music swirling around in my head. I can’t be lame only liking rock music and nothing else. That doesn’t make me, me.

What Is Really In My iPod? (Rock Edition)

We know I love my iPod and I love music so much. It is my first and sometimes I think it’ll be my only love that will never let me down. Everything I have has something for me to doubt about. Music is never something to doubt about since I love so many genres, artists and bands. I can never get tired of finding new and old music. Different genres can change your mood and attitude of your day. You can relate to the lyrics of songs because you wish you could say these things but you can listen to it and hopefully it will help you.

I’m going to post different genre at least once a day. We know that rock music is very good to me. I have a lot of different bands. You know that I am a fan of Linkin Park, Five Finger Death Punch, Sixx:A.M., My Darkest Days, and Nickelback. You also know about Motley and Gn’R making their way into my iPod as well, but what other bands do I have in my iPod?

Not Worth It Today

This cold weather hates me to the core. I’ve been feeling lazy for the past two days, well actually I take that back it started on Sunday and it went away. Monday was fine with me. It wasn’t as bad as it’s been. Today, I’m definitely feeling it again. I’m not depressed or anything I just feel my hips hurting more today. It hurts to sit up but I need to sit up and not lay down all day long. I’d be tempted to fall asleep and then I’ll never get any sleep tonight but I haven’t been getting much sleep at night anyways, so who cares? Oh, just remembered I can’t fall asleep after mom gets home. Teen Nick is going a four hour marathon of Rugrats tonight. Maybe I can get my mom to tape it for me. Sorry, but I miss my Rugrats being on.

Earlier today I was reading my mom’s People issue of Sexiest Man Alive. I read that after I got done eating and sat up after eating and getting up fully. It was a bad idea. When I sit up to read something I read it on my bed and lean up a little which puts pressure on my hips even more and it bugs me later on in the day. After I was done I put the magazine on the floor and laid back down. I sincerely doubt I’ll be reading today. It’s kind of hurting me now to sit up and type this up, but I needed to do something besides listen to my iPod on the stereo and watch TV. Mentally I’m not lazy, but phsyically I am.  I’ll read tomorrow, hopefully. Actually I’m going to need every once of strength for Thursday so I think I should be lazy tomorrow. Why couldn’t they just switch? This sucks now,

Remember That One Time On The Bus, When…?

I have a lot of crazy stories of the time I rode the bus to school and back home, but there was one story that is just priceless and very funny to try to talk about. Because anytime I try to tell about it I instantly start laughing because my bus driver, at the time he was our sub. Anyways, he did not expect it and neither did I. It’s a funny story and I’m going to share it.

In 2008, we had a sub bus driver. On my bus, we had a total of four students on our bus at the time. Now there’s a story before this, between my friend Nathan and myself our music stations didn’t mess well with each other. It wasn’t til Junior year that I started bringing in my iPod so I didn’t have to listen to Country music ALL the time! Well when Nathan had to stay after school, guess who got to channel the station. This girl.

Anyways, our bus driver apparently liked the Country stations a lot more than he liked mine. We have two pop stations here in my hometown. Well I got on the bus and got strabbed in place and our bus driver changed it to one of the channels. I didn’t know it was going to play these songs, but it did.

The first song that played was “Goodies” by Ciara featuring Petey Pablo. Second song was “Candy Shop” by 50 Cent featuring Olivia. And the last one was “Hot In Here” by Nelly. That was an awkward ride home, believe me. He had that mirror so he can see behind him in the back and for him always telling us after he become our official bus driver that he couldn’t hear the radio. Sadly, I think he heard those three songs. I felt bad afterwards.

When we got up to the house, I was laughing my butt off because of his face. When my mom brought the lift down and greeted my bus driver and I. He said to my mom, “you know her music is a little wild.” I think my mom started laughing after he said that because she was the reason why I even listen to that kind of music. When he left and we went inside she asked me what played and I told her and I thought her eyes were going to come out of her skull. It was hilarious but yet weird. I think it’s safe to say I think he switched the station back to Country afterwards. Can you blame him?

So that’s my story. That’s the priceless story I will never forget.

Justin Bieber vs. Linkin Park

I don’t understand people. Really don’t. Something I’ve know since last February. When Linkin Park was to perform on Saturday Night Live, everybody was excitement. People that were overseas becauses they wouldn’t be able to watch it with us that night. When Justin Bieber came up on my TV screen I was shocked. Because I never thought he’d be on there and everybody instantly turned on their hate.

I guess you can definitely call me a follower. Because that’s what I did. I followed what I saw in front me I started hating on a 16 or 17 year old kid who fought his way up just like Linkin Park as a artist. I realized about 3 months afterwards that “wait a second. I’m hating on him and I have like four songs in my iPod.” So I stopped my hating ways and kept secretly played his songs on my iPod. Only because I was afraid to know if my friends on Twitter would unfollow me.

Two months ago, I got into a jam. Again with some Linkin Park fans. Thank god it wasn’t the same subject like it was the last time. Anyways, a BIG number of people (including me) were making fun of this girl on Twitter, her biography had apparently both Linkin Park and Justin Beiber on her likes. The girl (who caused me to explode) said on a tweet that we were all going to die. I regret doing this, but I had sent her a tweet back saying, “yeah, at 4:20.” That time was on a clock when they were getting their pictures done for their album Meteora. Well I left Twitter for an hour and when I came back on. The other girl included me on the tweets to defead herself. Afterwards, I was pissed at myself and I apologized to her and vowed to never again make fun of Justin Beiber and his fans.

Well today, I unfollowed the girl who is one of the Justin Bieber haters, even one of the ones who wanted “KILL BEIBER” to trend on Twitter. Thank god everybody changed their minds and successfully trended “Linkin Park FTW.” Anyways, I went offline after a bit. Came back online after I was done with my movie. She sent me a mention, saying “my username unfollowed me because I was saying shit about Justin Bieber lol” Um, no I didn’t. I unfollowed you because your so freaking negative. Didn’t say that because that would have started a fire storm and I didn’t have a clue if I was going to be alone or not. My answer to her was, “No, but I am getting tired of it from everybody else.” From there I exploded.

I think it’s pretty childish that I followed what everybody was doing. My mistake. Another for everybody hating people happen to like Justin Bieber music and that means that only like him and ones who also likes Linkin Park. At least now that the secret is out I can finally be open about it. Maybe my sister and I can get along better now. I hate becoming a bitch but nobody gets away when they say stupd shit when they should have just let it slide on by. Out of all of her followers I happened to unfollow her and she pointed me out. That just ticked me off. Now its done.

I’d love to know what the guys think of everybody hating on him and his fans. It just drives me crazy. But I know I’m probably being childish. I am defeading myself and then maybe I should have let it slide but if I didn’t do this I would have exploded on my family and friends so that’s not going to happen. So I’m done with this and I hope I never have to do this again.
