Music has always been my remedy whenever i feel quite unsure of what i feel or i get tired in a day, it somehow really vanishes my weariness and it changes the bad day to good. It somehow transports you to another place like everywhere. I've been listening to every kinds of music ever since, I just find it quite relaxing and enjoy myself listening especially to my favorites artists.
