Every Single Song I Loved In 2018

You can’t keep a good Virgo down, and that is certainly the case when it comes to the music I listen to. I am obsessed with Spotify, and one of the reasons why I love it is because it is perpetually introducing me to new music. I can’t just listen to the same thing over and over: I would go nuts.

Where does the Virgo kick in? Well, I make a playlist every year of every single song I’m enjoying. It makes life easier, and it also — when I look back at it — tells me the story of my year. Listening to it, I remember that I started dating so-&-so when this song comes on, or that this person sent me that song. So in some ways, it’s autobiographical. But it’s also really convenient to have all the songs in one place.

Now, without further ado, I present: 2018: Rainbow Life. (At present count, it contains 369 songs, clocking in at a total of 23 hours and 42 minutes.) This widget only shows 100 songs, so click through for the whole thing.

If you’d like more music from my year, check out The Vortex and Meow!

I hope this makes the last month of the year extra-sweet for you!

Love always,

SHRED: A Mixtape!

02.20.2013 · mixtape

A little-known fact? I work out 7 days a week. Okay, sometimes I take Sunday off… But not often! I always think the most difficult thing about working out is actually leaving the house. It can seem so unappealing, especially if it’s raining, snowing, or otherwise frigid! If you can get yourself out the door, […]
