I love having my music on my iPod, but I quickly outgrew my 60GB’s the first year I had it (let’s not mention that the released the 80GB version for $50 less a month later). That 160GB is exactly what I need, but it is wasteful to buy another one, when my iPod works perfectly fine. I I have some emotional attachment, I used it when I would go on the road to research Blue Lines, or write in various Starbucks during my years writing or editing my manuscript.  Maybe I will give it to my friend looking for their first iPod???

The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
