I should probably confess the fact that I am a borderline hoarder. I also take music very seriously. My mom made these facts very clear to me today as we were cleaning out our house by giving me my large collection of CDs.
I love physically owning music. Spotify is nice, and I’ve been depending on it recently, but it’s kind of the same as having an ebook as opposed to a hard copy. I like buying CDs, and looking through the lyrics as I listen to the music for the first time. I like listening to entire albums, in order, the way the artist wanted me to. Sometimes, I would keep a CD in my car for months and listen to the same 10 songs over and over again. However, right now, I can’t do that.
My van doesn’t have a CD player. And I don’t own many tapes.
Thankfully, I do have one of those wonderful tapes that I can plug into my phone in order to listen to my music, and this has saved me a lot of money recently that I would have spent on music, but it just isn’t the same. Even though I can’t listen to them very often, I cannot bring myself to get rid of the concrete evidence of my love for these artists.
Have a lovely day! I’m sorry I’m a bit behind, I was sick. But I’ll be catching up as quickly as possible. 🙂
