Changes and a Playlist

Since graduating from University (Union and general campus life), much time has spent thinking how best to direct this blog. Do I carry on posting the same general topics as my peers regarding Further & Higher Education, Society & Citizenship, Welfare, Crime etc or do I move on in a different avenue altogether?

Much has happened since graduation; some good but mostly bad times, I have had to move back to my hometown, for example. But what has tied all of these times together exactly? What is the one thing, other than my family and friends, that is there for me and seems to know my mood, despite me not letting anything on to the contrary?

It’s my iPod, or more appropriately music. Live, loud, long, short, soft or full-on rock. I have devoured into music as of late, and when I say devoured I kid you not. There is still a mountain of CDs by my stereo that still need to be ripped to my hard-drive. I suppose the last time I was into music as heavily and as passionately as I am at the moment was when I was working two jobs during A-levels, but even then it was not to the extent that I am at present. Want an idea? Ok, then well you asked for it:

  1. Sounds like a blog worth reading, a considered view open to new ideas and suggestion.

    I’ve got to say that I’m a big iPod user myself, it would certainly be I’m my list of things to have If stranded on a dessert island, I’m always looking for new combinations of music that work as playlists so look forward to reading what you come up with; why not post your top 10 most played from your iPod?
