Mixtape Monday v12


Happy Monday morning! Apologies for my lack of blogging lately (or, who are we kidding- the past month or two.) That will all be changing in the next week or so. I've been feeling like I haven't shared too much of myself and my life on this blog lately and I can't stand it. I know we, as adults, have to be careful about the things we post online and how we represent ourselves. But don't you ever get sick of it? Yes, I know there are certain things that shouldn't be shared, but I'm really tired of only sharing .05% of my life on my own little corner of the internet simply because some future employer might happen upon my blog and think less of me for posting about that one time I burped and sneezed at the same time. (Total hypothetical. I actually don't even think that's possible, but you get the point.) I recognize that my favorite blogs to read are the ones that share the most- where I actually feel like I know the blogger- their hopes, goals, struggles, and everyday adventures. I'm really ready to dive back into blogging again, especially because a LOT is about to change in my life as of the end of this week. (Spoiler alert: it involves FINALLY leaving a no good, very bad job.) ANYWAY- this is all to say that, Internet- I'm back in you. Full force. I hope you don't mind.

Onto the music! There's something about mid-level, almost depressing music that I love. It's not the music you put on when you're really, really sad and want to just cry for no good reason- that's The Weepies and Elliott Smith. It's the music you put on when you're not quite ready to give into sadness or happiness. You just want to wallow in between. It's good living music. Just noise in the background of life. Enjoy the noise...
