do i not have privacy anymore ?
is she just allowed to take my stuff and go through it without my permission .
has she finally lost the respect towards me even though i am still giving her respect ?

TL;DR - scroll to the bottom .

i am tired of this .
tired of her just going through all my things and just jotting down what she likes .
it's just music, but the thing is, i like the feeling of being the only one with my music .
it gives me a sense of uniqueness in my family, without having to worry about getting annoyed by my music .
that's because it won't be overplayed and i have a LOT of music that i pretty much love listening to .

she said it herself ,
i just write the songs i liked .
she went through my WHOLE music library, and probably wrote down at least 10 songs since she's been bothering me about my music .
i listen to it , and she wants it .

i am tired of this BS .
i though that she understood that i don't want her going through my music .
i guess not .
i decided to not put a PIN on my zune.
believing that she UNDERSTOOD the fact that she isn't suppose to go through my music.
i thought wrong .
unbelievably .

i am REALLY pissed off .
like pissed off enough to be tearing up .
to WANT to punch something as hard as i can .
it's already happened before,
now i CAN'T even EXPLAIN how furious i am about this .

tomorow im suppose to be buying people's presents for Christmas.
wanting to get stuff in advance and not having to worry about it .
now , you know what, i don't even feel it anymore .
i can forgive and forget, but it's happened too many times for it to even apply anymore .

TL;DR - i am pissed off , and am not in the mood to forgive anymore . putting up a fake smile won't help . it's already hard to even smile with the amount of anger i got in me .

Hey man, chill... Who did this? Someone in your family?
It's just music... and music is supposed to be enjoyed by people, and it won't dissapear...
Sure maybe she could've asked first, but I mean... it's not that bad is it?

I thought this was about someone going through your chats/diary/phonecalls/texts.
Music?
I really, really don't see the point in getting mad over someone looking at your music library.

family member .
it's not the first time , that's what's bothering me . it's the fact she's been doing it repeatedly that it's a bother .
it's music sure , you could say that . but music is what makes a difference and keeps me not bored .
you'd think yeah we got difference music libraries, i couldn't be bored anymore .
once she takes my music, and joins hers, i just don't feel it anymore . the music, they just aren't good anymore .

...Seriously? You're pissed that someone else likes the same music that you do? That would make most people happy. The only reason I can think of that it would get you so worked up is that you're embarrassed of your taste in music.

Solution: Lock your Zune or get over yourself, no offense.

That's just my two cents. >_>

So, music isn't as good just because someone else listens to it too...?
I have to say that it is quite childish.
I do get that going through one's stuff repeatedly without consent is annoying! Ofcourse!
But that music thing? Come on... If she plays the songs a lot and loud, use headphones and listen to something else?

So what you saying is.... They listened to your Zune without your consent, liked the Music you had on there, and now they want to listen to it. Now, your kinda pissed because your Music is what make you unique, in way that separates you from your other family members?

Did I pretty much sum it up? In the future put a PIN on your Zune.

childish , sure i will take that in .
i'd say i am acting childish , and that's this is probably the most childish thing ever .
i can't say anything to that .
finally people smacking reality in my face actually helps ... really clears the mind since the way i was thinking was all jumbled up and just foggy cause of me just being pissed off .

i added a pin, added a few extra keys to my passwords done .

Now, what I think is that you take a mental note on which songs (what kind of songs) She seemed to like from your library, and in the future recommend her some? She wouldn't have to force her way to get to know some music, and it would probably be some kind of bonding going on as well. Win/win!
EDIT:
And also, you would probably feel better if she liked a song you like, if YOU introduced her to it.

I find music a great way to connect with people and i would LOVE for anyone to show a glimpse of interest in my taste in music. Try to share and care instead of keeping all the goodies to yourself.

I'd rather my sister (still) be listening to, and blasting, the music I like.
Now she just plays all this whiny horseshit that's popular these days as loud as she can.

I understand my brother did the same to me 4 years of not having anything, ANYTHING to listen to just because he kept playing everything I lstened to. SO just be patient you won't be there forever and you won't get tainted by what she listens to either. Time to get a removable lockable security protected media drive and a really good set of headphones. (bluetooth would be nice if you're a mover and grover) - suggest she get you that. OH and firewall all your files man.
My brothere actually turned me off of alot of music just because he listened to it too...

The issue here isn't the music thing. Gosh, it's the whole privacy and ownership issue. Seriously, if she asked, then there would be no problem, but going through stuff without proper consent of the owner? Man, that is bad.

^ but people took it in as immature . it is immature actually, but you got it right on where it bothered me especially . of not having privacy . i am just taking this in as a lesson to be more secure with all my things . whether it's my computer, my music, my games, everything .

I'm fairly certain most people understood the privacy aspect of your rant, but what you're trying to keep private baffled people. Rarely would anyone ever even think to keep their music private, unless they listened to some pretty embarrassing stuff.

    Is it piracy if it was released for free? Not in my opinion, but I also think it's not piracy if buying it isn't owning it, and it's not piracy if you can't buy it from the original creators anymore.
