I used to have an MP3 player but I found it distracting and annoying that I couldn't hear anything of the world around me. Plus it became expensive to keep downloading all the new tracks. I don't miss it. My phone can store songs. I put some on that I already owned but i rarely listen to them.

I just feel so upset when I see other people with an iPod (or their personal music players) and it makes me wish that I had one (don't ask why I don't).
How can people cope with being on long train journeys or even on their commute without listening to music?
What can you do to pass the time away without your music to listen to?
In fact, any suggestions, as I'm quite sick of doing nothing without nothing to listen to.
This is a true story.
My mum took my ipod away from me a month before my final GCSE exams because according to her it was a distraction. It was a 45min walk to school everyday and the only thing that would keep me company was my Ipod.
Without my Ipod i got bored on the long jurney so i decided to think about my school work while i was walking. This really helped me achieve good grades in GCSE.
So i guess the answer is that people survive due to thinking about other stuff like football/school work/ Mathematical problems (Today while shaving i had no music on and came across the solution to a C4 question that was troubling me )
