The place I currently stay has wall to wall carpeting save for the kitchen and bathrooms. I don't use those spaces since I don't want to weird out my roommates, plus they are too small. Where do you practice your shines? I am very tempted to park in an open parking lot or parking structure and leave my car window rolled down so I can hear the music playing from my car while I shine away. I could also wear headphones and listen to music on a mobile device, but I would rather not as if I am to pursue this approach it would be at night and I do not want my ears muffled.
