I also had a car then, so I always had the radio blaring. Sure I have my iPod now, but sometimes I just don’t take the time to put my headphones in before I leave the house, and when I’m already all bundled up, I’m not taking those fingers out of the gloves just to dig around for my iPod (plus it’s much less awkward to

Whatever my excuses, the bottom line is that I’m not listening to music as often. A lot of the time when I’m at work or finally do get my iPod all plugged in, I just can’t think of anything to listen to!
