I got a surprise package in the mail, an ipod shuffle. Apparently my friends love me a lot. Jon, John and Mat all went in on it. It is a must have for every cool college student. An ipod wasn't on my wishlist but, as I was setting it up I couldn't get over how something so small could play so many songs. It's my first mp3 player and I can say already that it's going to get a lot of use.
