This week I've learned a lot and it was great. As a class we learned about our This I Believe essays and we heard plenty of examples. I learned that I have plenty of stories to tell and so does everyone else.
I believe that it's great for everyone to share their stories and be passionate about what they believe in to easily connect with people. Connections between us would be great for people in our class considering most people don't know each other that well even though we've been going to school together for most of our lives. Interactions between people is becoming very important today in our society considering the advancements in technology.
I chose to do my "I believe" essay on music. Everything about it, including how it can influence people's decisions and feelings. Which is all based on how people interpret the music, to me it's like a very complicated puzzle. A group of people can all listen to the same song and feel differently about it, just because of how they interpret it. If someone focuses more on the beat of the music they may feel differently than the person that focuses on the lyrics. To me it's very important to listen to music because of what it can do for you. I've had many personal encounters with music personally influencing me and shaping and molding me into who I am today.
