Music is my life

Not that I’m a musician (can’t play any instrument, sings off key, don’t even ask about dancing), but music is important to me. It has the power to affect my moods and cheer me up when my friends are not around.

When I started planning for this trip, I never considered buying an MP3 player. That’s because my phone then can play MP3 and even take pictures. However, phonie and I weren’t meant to be together, and he vanished even before we were together for a month.

That left me with an ancient dinosaur of a phone whose sole purpose is to help people track me. If I was travelling with somebody, I can still bear not to have any music during long bus or train rides. However, plans change and now I’m alone without any music source.

After debating which MP3 player to buy, I settled with Sony’s Network Walkman. Why this? Well, for one it’s small and has an unusual shape. Also, I know if I get a MP3 player that has a higher storage capacity, I’ll just end up skipping through the songs. I’m pretty careless when it comes to thumbdrives, so if I use an MP3 player that can store other files, I just might end up leaving it connected to the computer. Actually, what I liked about this is that it uses AAA batteries. I can just toss out the battery once it’s drained, and buy new ones to replace it. That’s one less charger to bring. Whee.

    Music is my life too. and l listen to any genre of musics as long as it nice to my ears.
    No days pass without listening to music. Though i have a tight schedule (im a third business student) this semester, music has always been my favourite stuff. And i have a personal experience about buying an MP3 player. A fews months back, when i was about to going back to Sabah, I bought a-not-so-popular MP3 player. ( i’d rather not mention the brand). It was 2GB MP3 player. But after a week of using it, it damaged and couldnt be fixed. Though it was still on guarantee, i couldn’t fix it as the place to fix it is far away from mine. and i decided to throw it off into the dustbin. But i hadn’t given up that i bought another mp3 player.And this one is better and i could enjoy my music on the way back to SABAH.
