My iPod Has Issues – WordPress Has Joined the Crazy Club

9 Dec

This morning, I logged into WordPress and found that the format has been changed. Obviously, this is not the first time that changes have taken place, and each time I have to learn how to navigate the system to get where I want.

It an old-fashioned question, but why fix something that is not broken? Ever heard of New Coke?New Coke

Hold on. Scratch that. The classic system I signed up on was not broken. The changes since that time have gradually made the platform worse. With each change, I have figured out how to get back to the classic. One of these days, the classic dashboard is going to be deleted, and the blogging world will stop spinning.

Anyway, the folks at WordPress either need busy work to justify their continued employment, or they have joined the crazy club. My iPod is the only thing crazier than these constant changes. With that in mind, we will go completely off the wall and use this crazy blogging platform to explore my crazy iPod.

Hold on to your minds!

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
