I'm doing a challenge on Habit RPG which I thought might be fun to track in my journals. The challenge is: Each day listen to a song, any song and write down your favorite lyric from that song. Winner will be randomly selected from active players in March). It doesn't specify how to pick the song, so, most days, I am loading my whole playlist and then hitting random, and going with whatever comes up next. I will admit that on a couple of days when my schedule is packed, I've just said whatever comes up next while I'm driving - these will be limited as my daughter usually has a strong input into music while I am driving, and it will either be songs from the Mamma Mia! soundtrack or Sara Bareilles.
