  • Music as My Escape

    music_saves_my_soulWhen things get so busy with life in general or even if things are peachy, I retreat to my room and plug in my Beats by Dr. Dre and blast music as loudly as I can to escape everything and relax at the same time. Music has been a big part of my young life. I was first exposed to music as a young girl. Ever since then and until now that I have developed particular tastes in music, I make sure that not a day goes by that I don’t listen to music depending on my mood.

    Genres

    I have a wide range of taste in music. I make sure to explore new music as well as old ones – those released when I haven’t been born yet. I love pop music – any young girl does I suppose – rock, RnB, alternative, dance, techno as well as new wave and heavy metal. My phone’s memory is taken up mostly by my music, more than my photos do. When there is a new song on Spotify I download it at once to include in my different playlists. I have playlists for studying, road trips, chilling, running and many more. I make playlists depending on my mood and the songs that I want to listen to at the moment.

    Favorite Artists

    I have a lot of favorite singers and bands whose songs are on loop in my phone. I like the usual suspects – Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, One Direction and the like. But I don’t limit myself to these contemporary artists. I make sure to discover new artists on the Internet because I know there is also good music coming from independent ones.

    Cover Artists

    I recently discovered cover bands Adelaide when I was up all night browsing the Internet and YouTube in particular. There are plenty of cover bands on the Internet and the artists sing covers in their own style. They incorporate their own singing style to original songs to make great covers. I have been listening to them for a few weeks now and I continue to search for other cover bands, and singers. I also love listening to Daniella Andrade’s soothing and soulful voice where she covers all types of music. Boyce Avenue is another favorite. The vocalist’s voice is so sexy, and paired with their instruments they make ear-pleasing cover music.

    My phone’s memory is almost full, thanks to my extensive music collection. I think it’s high time to upgrade my phone’s memory or get a new music player for all my new musical discoveries. I am also not fond of deleting songs that I don’t usually listen to. I keep them in my phone so when the mood strikes that I miss listening to old songs in my phone, I can easily play them again. This is why my phone is running at a snail’s pace because my memory is running low. I am always on the lookout for new music by famous artists as well as not-so-famous ones.

  • The Newest News in Science and Technology

    Date: 2015.02.09 | Category: Geeky Stuff, Science Fiction | Response: 0

    Science and technology is a huge and strange pair of fields. While they are both geared towards the advancement of humanity, sometimes, there are some weird ideas out there. That doesn’t stop the impressive stories from coming through though, and as it stands, there are more than a few. From the idea of giant walls to a deficiency in young talent within Silicon Valley, here are some of the best news stories online right now.

    The Great Walls of Tornado Prevention

    Tornadoes have always been a huge problem in the American Midwest. They come and go suddenly and with no warning, then cause wanton destruction. This spurns scientists to look for as many solutions as they can to quell this issue. The latest developments in research within this field are the use of huge walls. Apparently, creating giant walls can quell those winds by softening the air cycles once a tornado starts to hit.

    Sprint Owner Pushes for T-mobile Merger

    This one came as a bit of a surprise during this last week of news. Sprint Owner Masyoshi Son has expressed their wish to merge with cell phone carrier service T-mobile. The idea of this merger opens up a lot of potential changes to both companies. Masayoshi has also mentioned that this change can help the American public through better Internet and Cell connectivity. This will be done through the use of effective plans and deployment in telecommunications.

    The Schism Between the New and Old Silicon Valley Generation

    People have always been trying to resolve the old and the new. While people may see it as a tradition to keep up old ways, the constant state of change requires new blood. In Silicon Valley, younger generations don’t communicate with the veterans. Specifically, there has been an influx of young software engineers, which means hardware has fallen to the wayside. This little schism makes it harder for the other face of IT to advance any further than it has.
