Hello again!

In my last post I talked about my culture and how it has shaped who I am today. Delving further into the topic, one particular area of culture that has greatly and genuinely had an impact on me is music. Much like other aspects of life, music interests grow and develop. You undergo different phases of harmonic taste and it never stops changing. The beautiful thing is, though, that you're not necessarily replacing old preferences, but adding on to them. The older you grow the more experienced you become, the more layers you attain. Music taste for me has grown into something I would have never imagined; a true concoction of the wildest, most different genres that are out there. It is one of the many gateways into expanding your knowledge of the world. It teaches one to be respectful and to always be willing to try something new, which are very valuable assets to have in life. Personally, one big goal of mine has always been to encompass as much musical diversity as possible. I have shifted gears more than once in these past couple of years, and that has only added to the variety. What once was a 13 year old kid taking part in the pop punk and alternative scene (bizzare, I know), has transformed into the epitome of what I once thought were the people with the worst music taste. I now listen to Chance the Rapper, Kodak Black, and Childish Gambino, the complete opposites of my previous preferences. My roots haven't changed in the sense that I am able to enjoy a greater variety of music now, but my mentality has in the sense that I am much more respectful and open to other types of it. I have been able to grow as a person and connect with others on higher levels because of music and I can say without a doubt that I would not be the person I am today without it.
