New Music

New music will be coming out this time of year. The artists want to get the airplay to put songs in your head and prompt you to buy their albums. So they are releasing the albums now and the radio stations will have lots of new music to add to their play lists. Some people will like the music so much that they buy the albums as Christmas gifts for their friends and family. I don’t like to give music as gifts – to me, music is much too personal a choice. Sometimes there will be an album that almost everyone loves, but most people have definite tastes on what artists they like and if you buy something for them that they don’t like then you really havent’ given them a gift of value.

Tomorrow I am going to do something that I have wanted to do for a long time. I’m going to visit a homeless shelter and meet the people who work and live there. I have always wanted to work at or volunteer for a position with a homeless shelter. Tomorrow after the tour Sara is going to tell me all about the volunteer opportunities available. 

I figured now is the best time to start volunteering with the difficulties that families are having with their finances. The shelter is at full capacity right now and they are in need of help. This County has always been known as a rich community but with the increase in unemployment and the high interest rates affecting the housing market a lot of people are ending up in shelters. I’m hoping I’ll be able to get a lot out of this experience and I hope I become more grateful for everything I have.

All I want to do is Eat!

I don’t understand why some days I feel like I could eat 6 meals and other days I’m not hungry at all. I find this very interesting, because it doesn’t seem to have anything to do with how much I exercise. Take yesterday for example I wasn’t hungry at all, and today I could eat all day long. I have had 4 meals already and it is only 7:00 P.M. I don’t understand my metabolism.  I’m hoping I get to a point where I wont have to eat 5 meals in one day!

Order online or by telephone

One of the things that has always annoyed me about ordering things online is that a lot of times there is no way to actually communicate with a live human about the product or service. So many websites restrict you to only communicate through their contact form. When you are thinking about placing an order, and trusting the company with your money, however, you might want to be able to reach the company by phone, right? So when I saw on the Musician’s Friend website the message “To place your order, call us toll-free at 800-449-9128” I was glad to see that their company sees the value in allowing the prospective customer more than one way to communicate and place orders!
