What was the greatest risk you took in 2012? What was the outcome?
This prompt reminds me the Improv class I took last session, an important thing I learned from that class is taking risk! But it's a little bit hard for me to figure out what is the "greatest" risk that I ever took. Sometimes, when we think about our past, the "greatest" seems to be not great at all. If I have to choose one, I think it is what I wrote on reverb day 7: trying to "sell" myself! Taking risk and facing what we are afraid of is profitable!
Okay, here comes today's prompt: What was music to your ears in 2012, literally or metaphorically?
This year, I realized that I love ballad and fork songs! To be honest, I was not a music lover especially pop music. By saying not a music lover, I mean I do not listen to it frequently. I usually listen to some soft music before sleep or after getting up, but seldom like other teenagers, stick to earphones during the day. As for pop music, I may have a "prejudice"towards pop songs and I think most them are too "noisy" or only about the so called "love"...
But this year, I changed a lot. The fuse is: I downloaded about 200 pieces of ballad and fork songs. After listen to some of them, I found I feel in love with ballad and fork songs! Most of them are very quite and melodious. I can close my eyes and immerse myself in the sea of the beautiful songs. So now, you may see me wearing my headphone and listening to music during the day!
Below are some of fork songs I recommend, and you cannot miss them!
