My battle with buying things

Whenever I decide to buy something I get into trouble. A lot of the time I just end up in a loop trying to make a decision and more often than not I end up deciding that either I don’t need whatever it is, or I won’t use it or that I can in some way re-purpose something I have to sort of do the same job.

Often this is a good thing. Obviously it saves money and means that I don’t end up with a huge amount of old ‘stuff’ that I just look at and then wonder what to do with, but it is frustrating.

Listening in January

I’ve been thinking more about my idea to critically listen to 1 song or track per day in January. I’ve been wondering which artist I should listen to. I really want to restrict it to 1 artist for January as it makes sense to listen consistently over the whole month.

The more I’ve thought about it the more I’ve thought that I could only listen to David Sylvian in Jan. It makes sense, to listen to an artist where I have a significant number of songs, and I do, and even though I thought of lots of different ideas for music and artists I kept coming back to David Sylviam, so that’s what I’m going to stick with.

The next thing to do is to work out how I organise my listening over the month. I’ll be giving that some thought over the next few days.
