How i fell asleep?

Day 29-part 3

I just came in my room, tired. I locked the door. I dug through my desk until I found my old headphones that I bought last Christmas, and I plugged them in to my laptop. I picked up a CD that she had given to me for something to listen if I am alone. It was one of my favorite bands the Beatles, but they used a little too much bass and shrieking for my tastes. I popped it into place and lay down on my bed. I put on the headphones. Hit play, and turned up the volume until it hurt my ears.

I closed my eyes, but the lights still intruded, so I added I pillow over the top half of my face. In concentrated very carefully on the music, trying to understand the lyrics, to unravel the complicated drum patterns. By the third time I’d listened through the CD I knew all the words to the choruses, at least. I was surprised to find that I really did like the band after all once I got past the blaring noise. I’d have to thank her again for the CD.

And it worked. The shattering beats made it impossible for me to think – which was the whole purpose of the exercise. I listened to the CD again and again. Until I was singing along with all the songs, until finally. I feel asleep.

My mood: 7.0/10
