This post is like the return trip of my New Mexico road trip, or the second half of my weekend (and more specifically, the times not spent sitting in the back seat of a car). We spent our afternoon after balloons walking around Old Albuquerque, taking in everything it had to offer — including the bright turquoise doors that seemed to be on every corner, the classic Pueblo architecture, the most incredible quesadilla I have ever had, and good ‘ole souvenirs. After some much needed sleep and breakfast at McDonalds, we stopped at the Grand Canyon before heading back to school.… View Post

Last year I got really into Spotify and began religiously making monthly playlists. I finished my Freshman year, however, and have moved onto bigger and better things — seasonal playlists. I started my fall playlist in mid-August, which most definitely is not fall, however I needed a change from my camp playlist which I relied so heavily on this summer.

The past few weeks have been full of HGTV (or catfish) marathons, sitting in my spot on the couch, and Spotify. My discover weekly playlists have been incredible lately, and I’ve found a lot of new music since coming home from school.

And no, this isn’t an ad for Spotify. I’m genuinely obsessed.

I stumbled upon “Girl” by Jukebox the Ghost from my Discover Weekly playlist on Spotify. I went on a rampage and before I knew it my February playlist was approximately 96% Jukebox the Ghost. oops. In other words, I discovered lots of incredible music for every time of day, every emotion and every occasion. I had a realization this week, amidst the stresses of midterms and papers, that I will not go home for another 13 weeks. AKA I will be away from home, again, for an entire semester. Read about my favorite song by Jukebox the Ghost, the weather in LA (because how can I not talk about it) and why this seemingly plain shirt is so great. … View Post
