I think I'm a bit too much of a weirdo for this game. This kind of "put yourself in someone's life where nothing much is happening" doesn't resonate much with me because all my tastes and interests are going to be quite different; the characters are going to be busy caring about stuff I always find a waste of time and not caring about stuff I feel is important, liking music I think is between bland and annoying, and so on.
