I'm just a normal 22-year-old who lives in Canada. I'm not the typical nerd, but I'm not a brainless football player. I do have friends (yes!!) I'm not an artsy-fartsy Visual Arts student
When I tell people that my passion is classical music, they immediately start picturing me drinking a cup of tea while listening to Boccherini's minuet.
The typical replies are : "Cool.", which is followed by an immediate change in discussion topic, or : "Oh yeah, do you know that Beethoven song, Fur Elise?"
Anyway, it seems to be that it's almost become a shameful thing to listen to "real" music, as I like to call it. What are your experiences? Are you an outcast?
In a society where people praise American Idol and pop icons, I feel outdated and weird.
