I went for a run today and felt like I spent half of it screwing around with my iPod. It does this damn annoying thing where even though it’s charged, it comes up with a flat battery warning and shuts itself down. Normally if I turn it off then on again a few times it rights itself but the other day it started dead until my sister worked her iPod magic.
It’s getting worse and I know it’s just a matter of time before it dies completely.
This afternoon I had to do some stuff with Andrew and he wanted to go to JB Hifi to get a new iPod. He got his when they first come out so it’s heaps ancient now. We were looking at them and the Shuffles were so appealing, although scarily small. I looked at them and some other mp3 players and the salesman offered us a good deal so I got one.
I haven’t had the funds to impulse shop for months now and I never buy things unless I absolutely have to so it feels wrong to spend $100 on an iPod but I’m sure it will feel oh so right when I can run without my music stopping mid-track. Plus it’s pink and shiny.
