Favorite Music Habits

  • Putting on my headphones and forgetting to turn on iTunes.
  • Sticking with the same album over and over again because my iTunes library is too large and I fear choosing a different artist.
  • Playing one song from an artist, then pausing it to do something and forgetting to press play.
  • Buying an album and forgetting to ever listen to it.
  • Listening to actual music.
