Day 6: Never Grow Up


 Music makes up a majority of my life. In my extra time, I can be found listening to music, watching plays, or playing the piano, alto saxophone, or Chinese violin. I grew up being raised on music, and it has then become a big part of me. Among my favorite musicians includes Taylor Swift, a well-known pop/country singer. Her songs are mainly about relationships, with inspirations from her own. Taylor Swift’s songs can also be relevant and inspirational to listeners around the world. I especially like to listen to her not-so-famous songs because they have a deeper meaning and are not overplayed.

Every morning, I take a forty-minute bus ride before arriving at my school. I have a routine in which I get on the bus, settle down, get my music ready to listen, and sleep. It is simple, yet vital for my day’s productivity. Somehow, I always wake up right as my bus takes a turn into my school’s campus. I do not know why nor do I know how, but it just happens.

Well, this morning, at 7:30 AM, I woke up yet again when my bus was just about to turn. At the same time, a Taylor Swift song was playing, a song that I have not heard in awhile. It was titled “Never Grow Up” and is from her third studio album, Speak Now. The lyrics of the song show that it is from a mother’s perspective (“Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up / Don’t you ever grow up, just stay this little”), before rotating with a daughter’s perspective (“Oh I don’t wanna grow up, wish I’d never grown up / I could still be little”). Hearing the song made me realize how much I should value being a child. “Never Grow Up” by Taylor Swift also made me realize that I should take chances, risks, and opportunities because I might not get them in the future. It is amazing how much one could get from a song.

    Isn’t it strange how you just know when you make that turn onto the Brookdale Campus? I have a similar routine to yours in the morning, and no matter how deep asleep I am, that left turn always jolts me awake. I get so annoyed when I wake up, because I know it’s time to stop pretending I am still asleep and I actually have to face my day.

    I do the same thing on the bus every morning! I settle in, put on my music, and fall asleep…except I rely on Hannah to wake me up :’D.

    I agree, I love Taylor Swift’s less popular songs because they usually have more meaning to them. Never Grow Up is one of my favorites, I always sing it to baby Ryan and he goes right to sleep!<3 Even though I'm only his big sister, I love watching him grow up. I now realize how amazing childhood was. I definitely wish I had never grown up, but that's alright, I can live vicariously through Ryan :'D.
