I never go anywhere without having my library of music on my person.

Music is literally life! It's rather important to me.
The instruments I play sometimes depicts my mood too. Like for instance, I play the drums only when I'm mad. I play the cello whenever I'm sad, or really, whenever I'm bored because the music calms my soul, if that makes sense. I play the harmonica whenever I think of my grandpa - as he was the one that taught me how to play it.
Listening to music is equally as important to me as playing the instruments. I don't think I've ever went a day without music tho.2

Music is incredibly important to me.
When I'm feeling pretty sad, I'll play guitar or bass with sad chords on it. I'll write lyrics and new song content to turn my emotion into something. When I'm angry, I'll play drums and focus my rage on making the music and hitting beats out.
I find that writing out the music and playing the music with emotions seemingly transfers the negative feelings into what I'm playing. It leaves me feeling much better after.
Listening to music is also a big part of my life though. For one thing, it helps me write more music by influencing my taste, and it also is something I find quite beautiful to hear. Haha it is kind of odd calling my genres of music (metalcore, rock, etc.) with a word like "beautiful..." but I find the harmonies and sounds fascinating. I have the utmost respect for the creative minds and abilities of talented musicians.
So yeah, music is important to me.2
