one of my (weird) quirks

i'm weird. i'm pretty sure we've already established that.

everyone is weird in their own way. everyone has their little quirks and habits that make them different, and sometimes make them weird.

one of my many weird habits is how i listen to music.

if i find a song (or songs) i like, i will listen to it (or them) on repeat. all day.

i'm not sure when it began, but i would say late in middle school or early in high school. i think it got worse in high school, especially when i got a car and could listen to music by myself.

i remember finding a cd i that i loved and i would listen to one song on repeat all the time. then i eventually moved to the next song. this went on until i had listened to the whole cd.

some people, chris, aren't very fond of my music listening habit. i don't think he realized how bad it was until we went on vacation together. we had never been on vacation together before. we would usually just listen to the radio when we rode together, but i took my ipod since we were going on a long trip. i had made a playlist of mainly john mayer and maroon 5 songs.

btw, those are probably my 2 favorite artists. love them.

back to the story. there were a lot of songs in the playlist, but i had my favorites. so i would rotate between my small number of favorites. it drove chris crazy. needless to say, the ipod didn't get played on the drive home.

why am i telling you this?

well, i've been listening to the same 3 songs since yesterday afternoon. and i thought it was kind of funny, so i thought i would tell about my weird habit.

i haven't really listened to much music lately because 1) my cd player in my car doesn't work anymore :( and it hasn't for about 2 years now. it's quite sad. so i'm left to the radio, and the radio doesn't have a repeat button. and 2) when i do hear a song i like, i usually turn it up really loud. i can't really do that anymore with addison in the car.

when i am in the car alone, and am lucky enough to have one of my favorite songs come on the radio, i turn it up really loud. probably too loud. and i sing. it's one of those things that just makes me feel better. i can let it all out by screaming in my car.

so, that's one of my quirks. my obsession with the repeat button.

and if you were wondering what 3 songs i've been listening to lately, here they are.

Sweet Caroline from Glee
Somebody to Love from Glee
Bad Romance by Lady Gaga

in that order.

i would be singing too, but chris is sleeping on the couch and i don't want to scare wake him. (and his snoring is the main reason i'm actually listening to music in the first place). so, i guess i'm kind of glad he's snoring, for once!

I do the same thing. And, my husband hates it too!
I have had the same 4 cds in my car for a year now - ha!
I just get stuck "in a rutt", I guess!

Sweet Caroline is one of my favorite Glee songs!

Ashley - i'm glad i'm not the only one! it's amazing that i never get tired of the songs! i really wear them out!!

Valerie - i always think of you when i listen to songs from Glee! i wish Sweet Caroline was longer, though. the Glee version is really short :(
