Jinglin’ Baby

I didn’t realize how much I missed my nano until I got my iPhone a couple of weeks ago and I started transferring all my music to it. I carry my phone everywhere I go, more often than not with my earphones plugged in and music playing. I listen to it on the train when I’m writing, during my walk to and from Union, when I run errands on my lunch, removing one ear piece so I can order the beet salad I love so much at the place in the food court near work. I’m getting back into running now, ramping it up on the treadmill at the gym and I’m wondering how I ever ran a half marathon without music when now it would kill me to run 15 without something playing in my ear. Last week I was plugged into my phone while I brushed my teeth, while I cooked dinner, while I slept in the hammock yesterday afternoon.

I spent most of this weekend loading up my iphone with as much music as I could, staying up last night until 3am loading track after track and downloading album art to go with it. I’m listening while I write this, my phone is on the bed next to my lap top and I’ve remembered a music meme that Kat did on her blog earlier this year that I had bookmarked as a reminder to do it on my blog but then it slipped my mind and when I remembered, I had lost my nano by then but now my iphone is pretty loaded, the meme is still bookmarked and I can’t sleep.
