Technical Difficulties

I've been having recurring tinnitus for the past month or so. It could be related to sinuses, and is almost certainly related to listening to music on headphones on my commute, especially given my newfound love of metal. To try to stop my ears from constantly ringing and there being a metallic sound in my head all the time, I've stopped listening to headphones except a little at work when I have good headphones. Which means I've cut two hours of music-listening out of my day. This has been compounded by the fact that I'm having technical difficulties which makes it hard to synch my iPod or rip CDs, which means no new music for the near future. The short end of it is that now I maybe listen to music for a half hour or an hour at work, and then I'll listen to some jazz or kids music in the background in the mornings and evenings. That's a huge contrast to how much I used to listen to music.

It is a little like realizing that I no longer have the time to read anymore. I stopped reading non-school stuff when I was in school, and it was such a sad realization to make that I didn't have time to read any of the books I wanted. Now I have all these albums I want to listen to but I don't have time. Growing up is lame sometimes.
