Before my iPod, I had my CD player. Before my CD Player, I had my walkman. Regardless of the technology, I’ve always had music. My family is unbearable without music to shut them out. I can only tune them out so much.
It’s not just my family…I tune everything and everyone out when I’m alone. In the car, when I’m walking down the street, in class right up till the professor starts talking…No matter how short the distance is, my earphones go in before I leave the building. This aggravates the hell outta my boss but I don’t care.
My music. My soul.
My iPod (Well, I think this is the 3rd one I’ve gotten since my first one 5 years ago) is my lifeline. My taste varies from Turkish to English to Techno to Rap to 80s rock to Hip-hop to Love Songs to Godsmack…all within the span of 2 minutes. It’d be hard to carry so many CDs with me. I prefer to put my iPod in my back pocket, ignore the stares and just do my thing.
My music reminds me of the good times, the bad times, the could-bes, the “I wish” moments…& everything in between. Music is consistent. Music is dependable. Music is my muse. Music is my block.
Music is my everything. Therefore, my iPod is my “I can’t live without it” gadget. Cell phone? Eh. I can go a day or two without it. My laptop? I’ve managed.
The two weeks I just had without my iPod? Pure fucking torture.
What is your “I can’t live without it” gadget?
