You are on your way to class when you spot Little Miss Perfect Sara Evans. She has her earphones in and you automatically assume that she’s listening to Miley Cyrus or Selena Gomez. During science you walk right into Grunge Rocker Boy Cody Thomas who you believe to be listening to ACDC. After school Uptight Prissy Cellist Monica Sellers sits next to you on the bus, earphones in, tapping her foot, presumably listening to Beethoven.
But when you ask, Sara is listening to KISS, Cody is rocking out to Frank Sinatra, and Monica is tapping her foot to Pink. It just proves that we don’t always know people.
Every day we just assume the music people listen to goes with their public image. But in truth, the music is what should determine who we are. We just embarrass ourselves by assuming. I mean, haven’t you heard the saying that when you assume you make an ASS of U and ME?
All in all, what I am trying to get across here is that people don’t always listen to whatever goes with their overall look. There are a huge number of rockstars who adore Mozart, an even bigger number of innocent girlies who spend most of their time jamming to Rihanna, and a shockingly large amount of tomboys who go crazy for Justin Bieber.
So next time you want to assume what someone is listening to, remember the huge amount of diversity in music and taste and that you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. Weren’t we all taught that in grade school?
Anyway, thank you for reading and I hope you will all check out my other posts, such as my one about the 25 Steps to Ace Your Finals. Cheers!
