Woah! Hold the horses to your thoughts and first see what I’m addicted to before assuming it to be drugs. Not all teens are drug addicted… A few good of us are still left who are addicted to scarier stuff like books, mobile phones, tea, coffee and MUSIC!
That other day I was going to my cousin’s place and my mom and me caught a cab to reach there. Like always my headphones were around my neck (they’re my favorite accessory and I never leave home wothout them).
I have black wireless skull candy headphones and I got them about 5 months back and it was love at first sight 😍. Since then I never really leave home without them. I’m committed to them like I’m committed to reading books (another thing I usually don’t leave home without. A good book.)
So as alway, as soon as we got in the cab I pulled the headphones over my ears and switched it on. My headphones make a beep-boop-beep sound which indicates that it has switched on. But this time when I tried to switch it on….. … It didn’t make the sound 😨
I started panicking. . And I’m not the kind of person who usually panics (so if I panic it has to be pretty serious) I tried switching them on at least 20 times but they still didn’t switch on. I was in a whirlpool of confusion. The journey was pretty long and I couldn’t just stare out of the window (I usually stare out of the window with music playing in my ears)
Then did I realise that the battery of my headphones was dead (obviously I hear too much music than an average person) I was in much ado. I didnt know what to do. I couldn’t just play it on my phone because. .. . Well I don’t share my music with everyone (cuz it’s mine and I’m possessive… Does that make sense?) I can’t explain the helpless situation I was in.
That’s when I looked at my creator. My mum sitting in the seat beside me. I looked at her with hope and asked the question I didn’t think I would
“Do you have ear phones? ”
I don’t particularly like ear phones because they are wholly inserted into a person’s ear and can collect ear bacteria or whatever. But I was helpless. I couldn’t sit the whole journey without my music!! As she rummaged through her huge as well as stuffed purse I crossed all the fingers I had hoping to put some ear bacteria in my ear so that I could hear my music.
Finally she pulled out her white ear phones and handed it to me.
I stared at it like I was handed a million dollars and smiled widely and took it from her.
That’s when I realized. .. .
Man, I’m addicted to music.
Not thats its a very good thing. Which of the addictions are? As soon as I got to my cousin’s place, I didn’t even waste a breath I just charged my headphones. (Gosh where were my manners? !) They were obviously gawking at my strange mannerisms… But they’re used to it 😸✌
But music is my weak point and existence without it is a herculean task for me.
And I never not want to get rid of it.
