Snapshot 5 by Hunter

Going along with this snapshot, one famous quote is "When words fail, music speaks". I relate heavy to this quote when I listen to some of my favorite music. I can string out thousands of words but none will ever fit perfectly how much music means in my life. From a young age, I was always involved in some type of music activity: dance, choir, and orchestra. Life is like a piano, the white keys represent happiness and the black show sadness, but as you go through life, remember the black keys also make music. With the right music, you either forget everything or you remember everything.

I enjoy numerous bands that all don't fit into the same spectrum but my favorite would have to be Pop music. While it does get annoying when it plays over and over on the radio, I enjoy it because you can always find a song that fits your mood right then and there plus I enjoy the upbeat feel it gives.
A song I enjoy, all though I don't hear it too often is, Time Of My Life by David Cook. This song brings me back to my senior year basketball cheer season. It was senior night, the night we all worked for. Possibly the longest four year wait that you never wanted to end for any senior athlete. We had a throwback game in the gym of the city's middle school and all was going well, our boys were beating the other team by a land slide but the last 5ish minutes of the game the coach put in the water boy, Zach, who had never played a game of high school ball in his life but worked so hard for the sport he loved. Zach ended up scoring 2 baskets. one at the beginning of the time he was in the game and another, the buzzer beater. Student section stormed the court, and it was a few seconds of pure happiness despite the things happening in our community. Zach ended up being on sports center, and it was a pretty cool experience to watch. I think about that moment when I hear this song because senior year basketball was a fantastic season, it was truly indeed "the time to be more than a name or a face in the crowd". The time of all of our lives.

  1. I don't know who you are, imposter, but you evidently know NOTHING about Hunter! In all seriousness, though, I am still trying to wrap my head around all this. I read it several times and still don't believe it.
