I go in and out of phases. One minute, I’m reading a book a day and struggling to not read during work hours at my desk. I actually have it figured out where I think I could get away with it if I downloaded my Nook books onto my computer and sat there pretending to do work. For the record, I have never done this, only thought about it, and I don’t think I would ever get away with it since my boss and I share a cube. But it’s nice to think about creative ways to not actually do work.
Then I’m completely obsessed with watching a television series. I’ll start watching something on Netflix, HBOGo or On-Demand and I can’t stop (won’t stop) until I’ve watched every episode for every season ever created…EVER. I’ve been on a huge Judd Apatow kick so I just got done re-watching Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared. These are two shows that should have had additional seasons not only because they crack you up, but because they are written so well that you can’t help but be able to relate to some aspect of the show. I also love watching Apatow movies and shows because you can always count on an amazing cast.
And the next minute I’m dropping mad loot in iTunes and listening to the albums I purchased all day and all night until my eardrums come close to exploding. I sing these songs in the shower, ignore people at work by just listening to music all day and pass out with my headphones in even though I never hear my alarm and end up scrambling to get to work on time.
I guess I have an obsessive personality.
Based on the title of this post, I would only hope you would be able to figure out what phase I’m currently in. If you couldn’t figure it out, stop reading my blog, I don’t want you anywhere near it.
I have recently purchased some great albums (some older, some new) and a couple singles. I don’t listen to the radio anymore, mainly because New York City doesn’t have a country station and well, because of the habits I have created to keep myself entertained. In my opinion, the stations that exist in NYC are mainly rap, latin and house music, and I just can’t. I’ll listen to some of the music (not latin) but I don’t want to listen to house music all day. I always feel like I’m going to have a heart attack. The beat, the build, it’s too much for me. I think if I listened to house music on the regular my anxiety would be 10 times worse than it already is.
Getting back to the point, here is my current play list.
