It’s easy to get stuck in a routine with day-to-day activities. The music you listen to, the food you eat, if it’s a daily occurrence, a rut can happen. It could be because you’re comfortable with what ya got, you’re just stubborn, or you’re like me: you love mayo on your BLTs and keep forgetting to re-download iTunes.
When it comes to music, I definitely tend to listen to certain things for certain situations. The Shins when I’m bummed out about how long the subway is taking. Beyonce when I’m trying to get excited about going out at night. The Spice Girls when I’m at the gym (I like to keep the eight-year-old inside me alive, okay!). I like old music too, like 1960s old, but I’d rarely heard any really, really old music, say 1920s old. My boyfriend, through his job, got into listening to vintage country music. I am not a country person at all, but after hearing some of the songs, I was surprised. A lot of the music is really catchy and some songs even have dated, accidentally funny lyrics. If I ever remember to download iTunes again, I could see myself listening to this on the subway instead.
I kept an open ear when it came to music, and it paid off. As for food, I’m finally willing to take the Miracle Whip challenge and keep an open mouth, as well. Admittedly, I’ve been strictly Team Mayo. But why? I like tang. I like spice. I’m not changing my love for sandwiches anytime soon, so I might as well try adding a little Miracle Whip pizazz. Can’t knock it ’til I try it.
