Let me tell you about my new best friend, who accompanies me everywhere I go, at times whispering soft words into my ear, other times rocking out and making me dance. This companion commiserates with me when I feel down, helps me learn new things, and is always there for me.

Noelle's iPod I’d like to introduce Prissy, my new iPod video. Ü Sure, she may be heftier than Kermit, my previous iPod (shuffle), but she also packs way more. I’ve currently loaded more than a thousand songs, about 20 videos, and about 300 photos — and I’ve got 50 gigabytes left on her. (Kermit has been adopted by my sister, by the way.) I’m currently paying my parents about P1,750 a month for 12 months, since they helped me get the iPod through a 0% interest plan on their credit card.

I wasn’t originally going to get one until a few months down the road, but now I’m glad I have it. It’s one of the little things that make my life easier. Now that I’m a BodyBalance instructor, I have to learn new choreography every three months (we’ve just started another cycle, but more on that in a later post) as well as refresh my brain with previous choreography. Having the video function means I can watch my instructional videos wherever I am and whenever I need to. Also, I don’t need to bring my audio CDs anymore when I teach a class (although I keep some CDs in the car just in case), so I can just plug Prissy in, create a custom playlist of BodyBalance tracks, then Push Play and Go.

BodyBalance aside, I usually listen to my own favorite music while at the office. I don’t know what it is with my officemates, but let’s just say they and I don’t share the same musical tastes. Also, I hate most radio stations and really can’t listen for too long (commercials, overtalking DJs, and some songs playing at least 100,000 times a day), so Prissy and I end up being lost in our own little auditory world. Ü Now excuse me while I go download some full albums. Hahaha. If I like them enough I’ll buy the CDs, don’t worry, Big Brother RIAA.

    If you’re taking your music with you while exercising or engaging in an intense physical activity, I suggest you get a flash-based mp3 player (i.e. iPod Nano, iPod shuffle) as it has no moving parts. The 30 GB/80 GB ipod, as much as it has a huge memory, still uses the same HD as that in your computer.

    Chin: I think my parents used their BPI credit card to get the 0% interest rate.

    pixiemom: It definitely is! πŸ™‚

    kid: Soon with your snazzy new job in Singapore I think you’ll be able to buy one. πŸ˜€

    ade: I was thinking of a Nano as well, but it just doesn’t have enough storage space for me.

    kneeko: yup I’m still all awestruck at it as well.

    xiaoyubeh: And why is that, pray tell? πŸ˜‰ Sayang!

    charles: Most of my strenuous physical activity involves moving around in a dance studio, with music blaring from a sound system. πŸ™‚ Prissy stays stationary on top of the amplifier the whole time.

    LOL because I need to get new gear for my unit, but either I couldn’t find stock of what I want for it (perhaps a new Tokidoki iSkin, because my black evo3 sucks) or couldn’t really choose what to acquire (some portable dock that can help me play all my songs in public when I’m outdoors) & I still need to convert a few movies so I can put them all in, but I just don’t have the time.
