Write About Someone Who Inspires You
I was supposed to write this post yesterday, but I honestly had a difficult time with the topic. I don’t recall a time in my life that I’ve ever had a “role model” or someone I necessarily looked up to. Of course there have been people who have helped me to become the person I am today (my mother, my teachers, my friends). However, I wouldn’t necessarily put any one individual on a pedestal.
So, instead of writing about someone who inspires me, I’m going to write about something that inspires me.
Anyone who knows me knows that my life pretty much revolves around music. I listen to music every chance I get: alone in my room, driving in my car. Wherever. Whenever. It has the ability to completely alter my mood and it is something that I crave.
I spent four years in college as a radio DJ and, during that time, I was introduced to so many new artists and genres. I had the opportunity to interview some of my favorite musicians and attend numerous concerts that I will remember for the rest of my life.
I also have friends who have referred to me as a human jukebox because I will burst out into song if I hear something at a bar or in a store. My tastes are not limited to any one particular style and I truly believe that this is something that has helped me to become a more well-rounded individual.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that almost everyone likes some form of music. Therefore, I feel like I can relate to a range of different people because of it. My mom raised me on classic rock. I played cello in an orchestra from elementary school through college. The radio station I worked for played all heavy metal all the time. Pop music. Hip hop. Electronica. I like it all. Well, except maybe country.
But there you have it. Music is my inspiration.
