My first MP3 player was a cute little one from Sony. It only held 500 songs so I was constantly deleting some to put on new songs.
I was given an Ipod touch as a gift Christmas 2007. After I figured out how to use it I never leave home without it. It has my music, some tv shows, games, and I can even go on line with it. My alarm clock is also my ipod charger. Every night it gets charged. Every morning I wake up to a song I want to hear.
My advice is to get the most memory that you can afford. If you are anything like me, you never know what musical mood will hit you and you want to be prepared.
Over the years I have read well over 1000 books. I am a book fiend and will read almost anything. It is rare that I do not carry a book with me. I spend hours a week on a train, I need something to pass the time other than my Ipod and games on my phone.
I never was much of a tv watcher, even as a kid. I have been in my current apartment since March 2007 and have yet to plug in the tv.
My proudest moment, reading wise, was with my youngest nephew. He was spending the weekend with me. He is not much of a reader but I tried to get him interested in some of the books I have. At one point he went over to my bookcases and asked “what can I read next?”. It made me so happy that I was able to get him to want to read.
Lost my job this week. Unemployment will help until I find something else, but I think this is a sign that I should go with an idea I have had for starting a small business.
