Sunday Shuffle #425

I can't believe I've done this 425 times. I've been wondering lately if it my be time to retire this feature, in large part because I don't add very many albums to my iTunes anymore. Plus, I have tons of albums I haven't ripped, so artists like Tom Petty and Drive-By Truckers and R.E.M. have little to no representation and I have all their albums. Still, I don't know that I'm ready to give this up because it's been part of my Sunday for so many years. In fact, I'm already planning for next week to be a single artist focus again. Anyway, while I'm not sure what the future holds for the Shuffle, I do know I'm ready to get to today's ten...

Sunday Shuffle #423

I finished in the pool on Friday, started my classwork yesterday, and start school on Wednesday. The calendar says summer lasts for another month plus, but it is quickly coming to an end mentally. I'm gearing up to make this a great school year - my 9th at Central. I'll be student teaching starting in March, which will be here before I know it, I'm sure. I'm going to do my best to balance between school and school and swimming lessons and life, to try to not get bogged down in the work and stress about it. I know I won't be able to engage in pop culture as much as I'd like, but that's okay. I'll appreciate every book I do get to read or TV show I'm able to keep up with. The one good thing is that music is always able to be a constant. Don't know what I'd do without it. Anyway, I got a little rambly this morning and I apologize if I bored you. Just a little State of the Justin for the 2016-2017 school year. Let's get on with today's t…
