Things in my world have been a bit stressful lately.
To put it a bit more accurately, I'm probably the most stressed out I have ever been in my entire life. I don't feel comfortable going into detail about why, so I won't.
This blog is my "happy place" and I try to keep things positive for the most part. Not because I care about what other people might say, but just because I am not the type of person who likes to wallow in the negative stuff. Which is probably why I haven't really been blogging a whole lot lately. I've been having a difficult time thinking of cheerful things to discuss.
Instead I have been going to my other happy place. A place I like to call Joeville. It is a place that requires absolutely no brain power at all. Hormones and the senses of sight and hearing are the only things required.
Anyway, this morning I was driving to work and thinking about all of the garbage that has been stressing me out. I was listening to my ipod, and was suddenly struck by what seemed to be quite the cosmic coincidence. I have an ipod nano, so the songs that play are chosen at random from my playlist. This morning each and every song that played seemed to be speaking directly to me about what is happening in my life right now...and in Joe's voice no less. I will grant you the fact that the majority of the songs on my current playlist are either Joe's solo stuff, or NKOTB...but there are plenty of other artists as well. Not today though. At least not until the last song that played before I got out of the car. That one was the Jackson 5...and it still fit the theme of the morning.
I don't know why it happened, but it really was exactly what I needed this morning. So I guess this is my thanks to the genius people at Mac who decided that the nano should be random.
