I am currently wishing that I’d bothered to use up the three or four year old iTunes gift cards I have sitting at home. I could really use some new music. That’s not to say I don’t have songs I’m currently listening to, but I do wish they were on my music player so I could carry them around with me. Then again, there’s also the issue of me not having a functioning pair of headphones right now, which means borrowing the ones my roommate owns and is oh-so graciously lending me at times.
In terms of playing music, I would really, really like a capo for my guitar so that I can move on to learning some of the other sheet music I have that requires one. I’ve nearly mastered all the songs that I can master for the music I have without a capo, which would mean getting some new sheet music or getting a capo. Frankly, I think both (and a trip to the library) are in order.
Thankfully my birthday is coming up, which means that I can ask for capo and new headphones . . . assuming my dad still has his job and my parents can spend money on gifts. *growl* I dared bring up my birthday the other day and I got a barely concealed tongue lashing over not asking for things that we may not be able to afford. The thing is that I really don’t have that much that I want. There are maybe four items, and two of them are general and would allow me to do my own shopping. Guess I’ll be waiting to see if this will be a birthday with gifts, or one without.
