For one of my classes I am keeping a music journal this week. It sounds like a fun idea, and I figured I'd share it! Here's the entry for yesterday:
January 1st, 2009
What: First CD of The Complete Symphonic Recording Les Miserables
Why: To entertain me as I swept and mopped the floors of: the utility/laundry room, the kitchen, and the dining/family room.
Effect: It made me happy (even as I scrubbed the floor) and I sang along in places, which made me even more happy.
What: First part of the second CD of The Complete Symphonic Recording Les Miserables
Why: Two reasons. 1) I was feeling down, and Les Miserables usually makes me feel better. 2) To help me focus on schoolwork.
Effect: It made me feel better and energized me, but it slightly distracted me from studying.
