Today I want to talk about MUSIC.
I don’t know about you, but I find certain type of music to motivate me and get me excited or “jacked up” as they say.
Of all places, I listen to music in the shower. I have pump up music playlist and that plays when I shower first thing in the morning. That is usually what I do as soon as I wake up. I’m a “shower in the morning” type person.
I didn’t expect to tell you this in this blog but there you go – it just came out! (Is that “Too much information”?)
It is the best way for me to wake up in the morning – music.
Eminem dominates that playlist. Here is an example of a song:
Sometimes I play music during the day while working too, when I answer emails, stuff like that. Though usually I try to make use of listening time into study time by listening to audio books.
Another thing to learn about music is the back story of the artists involved.

If you are interested to read about him, you can google like and just read about him, Wikepedia is a great resource.
You can also read his book, “Eminem, The Way I Am“.
Here is a description of what you will find in that book:
Everyone wants to know what Eminem is really like-after the curtains go down. In The Way I Am, Eminem writes candidly, about how he sees the world. About family and friends; about hip-hop and rap battles and his searing rhymes; about the conflicts and challenges that have made him who he is today.
Illustrated with more than 200 full-color and black-and-white photographs-including family snapshots and personal Polaroids, it is a visual self-portrait that spans the rapper’s entire life and career, from his early childhood in Missouri to the basement home studio he records in today, from Detroit’s famous Hip Hop Shop to sold-out arenas around the globe.
Chart topping-and headline-making-rap artist Eminem shares his private reflections, drawings, handwritten lyrics, and photographs in his New York Times bestseller The Way I Am
