I am one of the rare, near-extinct (?) girls who doesn't have her own iPod. I still use my iPod Shuffle--the old version--and even that I didn't bought with my own money, but something I won from watching UAAP, haha!
I do love music, but I think I got stuck with my "own generation" grooves, and some old tunes I came to love thanks to my dad (like the Beatles!).
I don't know why, but most of the time whenever I see these cool teenagers wearing their iPod earphones while racing the streets of Manila, my thoughts will go "wow that kid looks cool".
And whenever we go to a gathering or a casual event where we don't know anyone, to avoid the awkwardness, don't we just love to slip on the white earphones and drown to our own playlist--our own world--and then voila! We just made a "that kid is too cool for school" statement to the people around us without even knowing it.
As Nina Garcia's The One Hundred said: "What started out as a utilitarian device is now an essential fashion item. Those recognizable white earbuds have become ubiquitous accessory on subways and schoolyards the world over."
And since I don't have my iPod, I made an earphones necklace instead! Paired it with my new Oxygen oversized stripes top, Oxygen black tank, Herbench shorts, my new comfy white pair of Advan sneakers, tied my hair in a high ponytail--and there! I think I'm ready to dance through the rest of that busy night!
