Middle school musings: music fuels Cedar Lee student’s day
Editor's note: This is the first in a series of stories by Fauquier County middle school students. This week: Cedia Lewis, Cedar Lee Middle School eighth grader.
Music is a huge part of my life. Music inspires me and keeps me motivated every day. I always get nervous before one of my basketball games because I feel a lot of pressure to win. So, I listen to A.S.A.P. Ferg’s “Work Remix” (A.S.A.P. means always striving and prospering), Drake’s “Forever” and Wiz Khalifa’s “Work Hard, Play Hard” to get pumped up.
Drake’s “Started from the Bottom” is a song that inspires me the most because he says, “Started from the bottom, now we’re here.” This means to me that as long as I work hard in school and practice hard, I will rise from the bottom to the top.
I know some people dislike Rap and Hip Hop because of the rude language, but the people who grow up with this type of music are immune to the language. We just listen and understand the beat and creativity of the song.
There are many more songs that motivate, inspire and help me through challenging events in my life.
People always tell me my iPod Touch is my best friend. It is, because it has a majority of my favorite music that I never get tired of listening to. Rap and Hip Hop, R&B, Gospel, and Soul Train are the type of genres that I have listened to since I was a baby and continue to enjoy. Those types of music are a part of who I am.
Yes, I dance and go insane when my favorite song comes on because I love music!
I really don’t think I could go one day without listening to music. Music makes the whole world go around, and it doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from.
