Hi everyone. My name is Emma Thorp and I’m a freshman from Arlington, Virginia, right outside D.C. I’ll probably be an English major, which both excites and terrifies me. While there has obviously been a lot of technology that has influenced my life in significant ways, but my iPod is definitely my favorite one. I love it. It’s been so many places with me, from runs around my neighborhood to cross-country plane rides. Music is very important to me, and the ability to carry all of my music with me, wherever I go, whenever I want, is nothing short of miraculous. It goes everywhere with me. Whether it’s a five minute walk to school or a three hour car ride, I love just slipping my headphones into my ears and disappearing into a world of melodies and harmonies coming from a device smaller than my hand. Thank you Apple, or any mp3 player manufacturer. Thank you so much.
