Behold…after so long. After all the years of waiting and saving and having to stand back and watch other people flaunt it in my face. After so long.
I have exactly what I want.
And for the 5th time today. No I did not get an Ipod. I got something better. Now mind you that compared to the new 6 gig Ipod mini, this little baby does sort off pale in comparison, but I expect its 6 gig replacements to be just as good as how this little bugger beat the 5 gig Ipod mini flat.
I mean how could it not? It has a longer battery life, it’s smaller, it’s lighter, it sounds better, it’s got an in-built radio which can record and comes with an organiser in it…hell, it even works as a portable removable drive. The best part of all is this.
It does not run on Itunes.
I just love the way that sentence rolls off my tongue.
As much as I wanted its bigger brothers, there is no way I can afford them. In fact, even with all the savings, I have just enough personal expenditures to scrap through the next two months on my own. Heck…I haven’t eaten a proper meal since almost 2 days ago. That’s how far I’m going to be pushing things for the next few weeks just to even out the price I paid to get my hands on this.
But it was more than worth it.
Sometimes the smallest things that are taken for granted by many can be worth more than the price they paid for it. This little baby might have just saved my life and secured a future I should be able to reach out and touch. I said it before, somethings I’m willing to starve for just to make sure I don’t hear them again.
I always keep to my word.
Thanks to those of you who helped me get this.
It means a lot to me.
More than many of you would ever know.
More than I will ever admit to myself.
