Today I’m off traversing the beaches of Cannon and Seaside with two of my best friends, so I thought for this Wednesday’s entry I’d share something I’ve been compiling for the last several months.
I love putting playlists together for myself for occasions, certain moods, crushes, fandoms, other people, you name it. My New Zealand playlist, which I started up in February, was at one point 40+ songs long. I just couldn’t stop adding to it; everything made me think of this trip. I’ve since narrowed it down, although not all make it onto this playlist I’m sharing with you.
I chose songs that I thought summed up this experience thus far. Songs about living in the moment (Remember This), appreciating life (Amy aka Spent Gladiator 1), traveling somewhere new (The Trail We Blaze), and becoming the person I’ve always wanted to be (Waiting for My Real Life to Begin). It’s just a slew of songs that mean something special to me. It’s a random array, ranging from showtunes to The Mountain Goats, Bruce Springsteen to Disney. Perhaps I’ll do more mix tapes in the future. We shall see.
