A Nostalgic Love Letter to Music

I have only recently realized again how putting on music can change your entire day around and how much that fact alone makes me love it. So I decided to show my love for it in this post; in the form of an admittedly very nostalgic love letter.

Dear Music,

Ever since I was old enough to understand what music is, you have been part of my life.
In the form of the old records my dad used to listen to, in the form of the lullabies and childrens songs my mum used to teach me and sing for me, and in the form of the radio constantly playing in the background whenever we did anything. I grew up with so many different genres of music due to my parents’ varied music taste and I could not be happier about that fact; and how it has shaped my own music taste to like almost everything as well.

I still remember the time, when I got my very first portable CD-player. It was my pride and joy and I took it with me everywhere I went. It blew my mind to know what this, what I back then thought, small thing was capable of doing. I was able to listen to you wherever I wanted and didn’t have to rely on a my radio at home. It was truly revolutionary!

I would say that this was the point in my life, where I started to write “love listening to music” into all the “friends books” I received and into every single text that asked of me to write what I like doing or describe my day and so on and so forth. You became my daily companion.

Fast forward a couple of years, music is now portable on phones and one no longer needs to record radio songs with their flip phone to have special ringtones (god, I’m old). I am now in highschool, which means daily busrides to the city in the morning and the afternoon. It’s loud and there are a lot of people. Sometimes I don’t even get to sit down for the first few stops but I don’t care. I have you. I have my my headphones, and the few songs that would fit on phones are playing up and down. Maybe this is why I’m still the kind of person that can listen to the same song(s) up and down without getting bored. There were a lot of things that weren’t great about highschool but I think it was due to music that I came home and was able to deal with those things. I’m sure you’re familiar with the saying “music on – world off”? It’s a clichรฉ saying but it’s true. You helped me dream myself into worlds that weren’t ours. I had somewhere I belonged.

It also always impresses me that it was due to you that there were actually two occurences that led to me finding friends because the people were wearing band t-shirts of bands that I like, and I decided to just go up and talk to them. One was in the school I went to after highschool and the other was at university. Both of those people became very close friends of mine. So the other saying “music connects people” is also definitely true. You do. You create communities where people of all kinds can come together and enjoy the same thing. That fact has only recently become very prevalent again, when I was at a concert for the first time in like three years. The people visiting the concert couldn’t have been more different from each other. There were people that were dressed casually, people that were fully styled, people who were my parents age and people who were significantly younger than me. It was truly incredible to see you bring all of those people together.

I feel like the older I became, the more important you became to me and the more I needed you in my life. You became a neccessity for both the good days and the bad. For the happy moments and the sad. For motivation and for relaxation. For when I can’t sleep and for when I just need you to be loud enough, so I can no longer hear my own thoughts.

So now, I just wanna say thank you. Thank you to all the artists that make you into something beautiful, powerful, and emotional every single day. Thank you to the people that made it possible to listen to you, no matter where I go. Thank you for bringing people together and thank you being there for me whenever I need you. You truly are a gift to humanity and I truly don’t know what I would do without you.

With Love,

~Luna

Next Stop: Nostalgia Valley!

Today I want to share with you my history with video games, what they mean to me and how Twitch plays a role in all of this. So I hope you’re ready for some nostalgia and story-time. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Video games have always been a part of me, since I was little. I used to watch my parents play them in fact. My dad introduced me to games like Sacred or later on Guild Wars, whereas my mum, despite also playing those games, shared her love for Anno and Sims with me. They both showed me how much fun it can be to just tune out from the real world for a few hours and immerse yourself in a digital one.

Fast forward a few years and your girl is now eight years old and has finally convinced her parents to get her her first handheld gaming console for her birthday. It was a Game Boy Advance and it had this awesome silver and black design on it that looked like flames.(Can you tell I still love this console? xD) I was over the moon when I got it and from then on Super Mario, Rayman and Spyro basically became my life and I loved every second of it!

I got my first computer when I was 11. I remember the day vividly, my dad had put his old PC-set-up in my room, so the boys at my birthday party would have something to play with. Little did he know that it was me who spent basically my entire birthday party glued to the screen xD. It took a little bit of convincing but eventually I got to keep the PC in my room. It was one of those old CRT-monitors that were common back then (and my god those things were huge ^^) and a mouse and a keyboard that looked whole lot different from what most of us, including myself, have nowadays. I just realized I’m making this sound like I’m sooo old when in reality I’m 23; makes me realize how fast the tech world is changing ^^. It was then that I discovered my first ever RPG – Sacred. I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent playing this game over the years, trying it out with different characters, even playing it together with my mum via LAN, it was a hell of a lot of fun. Sacred paved the way for my love for PC-games and while I still enjoy playing games on hand held consoles or other consoles, PC-gaming is my main thing.

Video games have helped me through some difficult times in life, where all I wanted to do was to turn off my brain for a little bit, tune out and focus on a world that wasn’t this one. They have helped me discover beautiful worlds and made me feel successful, strong and powerful when I wasn’t feeling like that in real life. They have helped me step back from problems by blocking them out for a bit, which enabled me to go back to those problems after they have had time to simmer a bit and I was able to look at them from a more objective angle. They have shaped a big part of me into what I am today and I will be forever grateful that to this day this is something my whole family enjoys and we can bond over.

Now, how does Twitch fit into all of this? This joy, emotion and all of the things that video games gave me, and are still giving me, are things I want to share with the world. I want to connect with like-minded people and interact with them, giving both myself and them a place where they can belong and give them an opportunity to smile, laugh or simply to focus on something else for a while. All of these content creators that I watch or read have given me so much and my goal is to be able to do the same.

Being a content creator has always been something that I wanted to do and now I’m finally starting to do so. It’s scary and exciting at the same time and there are still a lot of hurdles that I have to overcome and I’m aware that there will be a lot of hurdles in the future as well. The path I have taken is not gonna be an easy one but I am convinced it is going to be worth it in the end; and as I learn and improve, my content hopefully will too!

Thank you for taking the time to read this little insight into my life and my thoughts. I hope all of you are staying safe and well. โค
