Weekly Playlists #1

Featured Image by Kelsey Smith

My bio says I make love to music and it’s true. I feel so foolish I’d never thought about sharing my playlists here. If I’d realize earlier that I had a blog, I’d have been posting my playlists on it.

Ah, What have I been thinking? Better late than never, I guess. I like making playlists when I’m not in the mood to listen to songs on my phone in order or when they’re in shuffle. This week, I had three playlists, haha. I’ve been moody lately I think. I’ve read posts on playlists and music recommendations and have discovered new songs and artists from them, I hope you discover new songs or artists from mine. I doubt you might today though, I think these songs and artists are quite popular but still, I hope you discover someone new!

I’d be starting with this nostalgic one. I played some of the songs on this playlist alot during my first year in the university, when I was still naive and high on that “let’s get this degree” spirit. Well, I don’t know what I was thinking back then but University has given me a lot of stress and depression and I can’t wait to graduate. This playlist is like a throwback to the good old, no stress times.

Lemon – N.E.R.D & Rihanna

And this is all of them. I’ve seen people who’ve got better lists than this though.

These playlists all have different kinds of genres because I wasn’t in the mood for a specific genre of music but for music that made me feel and remember like the 1st one; move my body, like the 3rd one and nod my head/tap my feet as I type on my laptop, like the 2nd one. Like I said, some of the songs and artists are popular but I hope you found someone new to listen to😬. How cool are these illustrations?😍

What’s has been your favourite song(s) this week? Let me know, I’m always looking for new songs. Look out for more weekly playlist posts from now on 😀

I hope you’re staying safe and doing alright.

Thanks for reading.
