My iPod Has Issues – Color Coded

7 May

I was listening to one of the stations on Sirius satellite radio and noticed something going on with the songs. They all had green in their title. Eventually, the DJ came on and explained that they were playing songs about colors.Notes

That is when I decided to steal their idea and see what colorful things were going on in my iPod.

My iPod Has Issues – Hanging Around the House

6 Nov

I am sitting in my office and just finished reading an article about sumo wrestling. My family is upstairs watching a music awards show, and the sounds are making their way to me. There is a note on the desk with a list of blogging topics. Four of them have been crossed out, and two of them are waiting to formulate in my mind.

Speaking of my mind, it keeps drifting to class. It feels that I am behind in couple of them, and I am trying to figure out how to catch up. This semester is going by faster than any semester I can remember. It is hard to believe that November has arrived. I was always told that getting older makes time go by quicker, but this semester is super quick.Time

An old toy from my childhood is sitting on the floor. My mom was going to get rid of it in a garage sale, but I rescued it. I bought batteries to put into it, and they are sitting on my desk. I should put them in, but I am afraid it will not work. That probably is not important. However, it could cause some slight psychological damage.

Speaking of psychological damage, this is an appropriate time to look into the mind of my iPod. There is music in the air, which means there should be music on the screen
