Life can be so unpredictable. One minute you know what you are doing and the next minute you are completely lost. I am 23 years old, still in college and I have no idea what I'm going to do with my life; I have switched majors at least three times. In this world, nothing seems to be certain. People go through stages where they think they know all the meanings and mysteries of life. When I was in high school, I thought I had it all figured out (just like every other high school student) then I came to college; I had no idea what I was doing. The only thing now that I believe to be certain is my love for music, and more specifically, Linkin Park. Linkin Park's influence on my life has been nothing short of amazing. When I listen to their music I feel like I couldn't possibly be any happier. Sometimes, when it's as though life couldn't get any worse, the music of Linkin Park guides me to the light that I wouldn't have seen otherwise.
My mom told me that I have been singing for most of my life, even before I could talk. She told me that when I was a baby, I used to hum along to the Sesame Street theme song. As I grew up, I always tried to write my own lyrics to music; I was never very successful. All my lyrics weren't coinciding with what I was feeling but I wasn't quite sure how to express them through song. When I started listening to Linkin Park, I felt that the band members were reading my mind and my heart. In my world, where I felt no one understood my feelings, there were six guys that did. Although the band's lyrics aren't very hard to comprehend, the words are still deep enough and filled with enough heart and emotion to let someone know that they have been through hurt as well; they are no different than any normal, unfamous person. Because of Linkin Park's lyrics, I feel that I can now express myself through song and even though the words might not be hard to understand, they are still my words and feelings.
