MUSIC. PODCASTS. ETC.
Music is my hero. During some of the worst moments of my life, I listened to music to get me through. When everything was going amazing, I listened to music to celebrate. When it came time to grind and spend hours doing schoolwork, I listened to music and had a dance party with myself to get my adrenaline going. Again, music is my hero, and this is where I get to talk about my hero.
Another form of audio entertainment that has really helped is podcasts (or should it say “are podcasts?”). I’m telling you… when I need to get my life together and have absolutely no motivation, I listen to a podcast and feel rejuvenated and get excited about getting my ish together. Again, this is the space for talking about that.
RECENT ALBUM I’VE LISTENED TO
TOP THREE SONGS AT THE MOMENT
I Survived My Second Year of College
My second year of college was beyond crazy for various reasons. I decided to do a recap of some of the “highlights” using song.
New Songs I Discovered Thanks to Bonnaroo
Last week, Bonnaroo released their 2019 lineup, and thanks to that lineup, I discovered new songs I now jam to all the time.
Tastebreakers That Made It
Last year, Spotify released a Tastebreakers playlist for everyone to explore other artists and genres. I finally gave mine a listen and decided to share the songs from it that I actually like.
My Top Albums of 2018
One thing 2018 provided was some bomb music, so I decided to share my top ten albums that were released in 2018.
I Am an Empress
One of the best albums I’ve listened to this year is Empress by Ray BLK, a 29-minute album all about self-love that I couldn’t resist doing a review about.
Simply Special #1: Goodbye Past, Hello Future
This was such a spontaneous decision, but I don’t regret it. This is the first episode of Simply Special, an unofficial, amateur “podcast” I decided to create. It’s 100% unedited, so there are for sure several moments when I go off on a tangent.
Simply Special #2: R-E-S-P-E-C-T
A couple of days ago, I witnessed what I consider a blatant example of disrespect (AT A FUNERAL) and needed to talk about it because I was beyond baffled.
Simply Special #3: Have Your Rolls and Eat Them Too
For this episode of my knock-off podcast, I talk about bodies and struggle with articulating my thoughts in order to do so.
Simply Special #4: Deleting It All
During this episode of my knock-off podcast, I decided to talk about how refreshing it is to take time away from social media.
