I feel like I’ve been taking a bit of a blog break. Probably for a couple reason. First, I was working on two time-intensive projects at the same time. No extra time to share my favorite recipes or attempts at being interesting. Second, I’ve been in a personal rut. I haven’t really felt like myself in a really long time. I think that makes my creative pursuits suffer a lot. Plus I haven’t really felt like exposing myself to anyone who may stumble along this or have it bookmarked.
We spend so much of our lives curating the person we want others to see, and sometimes it can feel draining. Not to mention when you hit emotional lows and feel like you just can’t really show that to other people. It’s almost like the masks I (we) continually wear have just been exposed revealing far too much to the outside world. This feels way too deep for a measly little post about a playlist I made, but hey what can you do?
While working on a project I was inspired by something I was asked to write which kinda had to deal with how I have been feeling, so I decided to dip my toe back into this blog. And I’ve done so in the best way I know how: music. It’s pretty much been my entire life and I’ve always made playlists as a way to focus my energy or put my emotions elsewhere. It feels like it’s been a hot second since I put together a playlist of everything I’m listening to right now so here it is.
This playlist literally sits in my streaming accounts with me occasionally tossing in songs I listen to a lot. These songs have seen me through long days staring at a computer screen doing data analysis, countless spreadsheets, and far too much keyword planning. Some of the songs have been my gym inspo to keep on fighting when I just can’t run anymore. Not to mention the ones that kept me company late at night when I couldn’t sleep. As always it’s a little hodgepodge of everything that’s been playing through my speakers and headphones for the last month or so.
Perhaps you’ll find something interesting or new to listen to. Something that will be your friend when it feels like everything sucks. I hope to keep updating this blog more frequently. After all, it was started with me trying to figure out life, so when did that ever stop?
