This is by far my favorite playlist that I’ve shared on this blog. I’ve been playing all of these songs OUT, man. I thought last month’s playlist pretty accurately aligned with where I was at in life- but this one takes the cake. Every time I put it on, I get nervous that it’s going to be the listen that makes me sick of it. THAT’S how much I like it- so much so that I fear the day that I will no longer like it.
Most of the songs are relatively upbeat. I feel like I’ve finally fallen into my new job and am making it my own- my boyfriend is at last up in Massachusetts with me- I’m coming off of a really fun vacation with my best friends- and I’m generally just happy to be where I am in life. It embodies the weird mix of energy I’m feeling right now- trying to make the best out of the final days of summer, the sense of “new year” that comes with back to school // fall // september being in full swing, and the sense of newness I’m still experiencing since having moved and starting a new job.
These tunes are what I’ve excitedly been blasting in my ears as I get off the train headed to work- what’s been in my ears as I walk through winding city streets- and what I play as I lay on my grandparents’ back porch painting my nails.
I hope you like this playlist as much as I do. But I’m pretty sure that’s impossible.
