There’s something very comforting and meditative about going through my iTunes library ensuring order and consistency: getting rid of duplicates, resorting songs into artists’ folders, finding nomenclature variations for the same band (for example, “!!!” and “!!! (Chk Chk Chk)” or “Police” and “The Police”) and consolidating all their music into the folder with my preferred form of the band name.
Mildly pathetic, but I spent time with friends earlier tonight, so this wasn’t my entire Saturday night plan. Just the “well, I can’t sleep anyway” portion. And I feel nice and organized and in control of something in my little jumbled up world.
It’s also very comforting to go to bed late and know that I can get back into my regular sleep schedule tomorrow if I need to since I’m taking the day off on Monday. It takes the stressful edge off the insomnia — and that makes it far more bearable.
