Anyway, I've been taking ye olde CD player with me for my workouts. I set it up on the magazine rack of the treadmill, and it's fine there for when I'm walking. When I run, though, the music starts skipping like a flat rock on a smooth pond. I end up holding it in my hand like a big doofus, and I can really only pump one arm while I run. So, you can imagine how pleased I was to find that MP3 player.
In the past, Dave has uploaded songs and podcasts onto that baby for me, but I wanted to see if I could do it myself. Last night...TA DA!!! I ripped a CD onto my laptop and then uploaded the album onto my MP3 player all by myself. AND, I did it all without getting frustrated and/or crying/yelling at my laptop!
Today, our worship pastor emailed to ask if I'd sing during the offering on Sunday (he'll be out of town). Formerly, I'd need enough time to order an accompaniment track from Christianbook.com or someplace and have it mailed to me. But today, with my new confidence in all things digital, I downloaded the album and then burned it onto a CD (my first time!) in about 15 minutes. Again, no crying or yelling whatsoever.
What's next for this technology maven...? My new skills have me feeling like this....
