Remember back when I did weekly playlists? It’s been a while. Frankly, I stopped doing playlist posts because I felt that I had nothing to add to the conversation. My taste in music is pretty main stream, and I’m not the person to look to when trying to find new artists. Here’s my list of things to listen to anyways! Maybe you’ll find something new. Maybe you’ll rediscover something old. To each their own.
If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw my post about going to the Marina concert last month in Atlanta. I hadn’t listened to Marina (then Marina and the Diamonds) since high school. When my friend offered me a concert ticket to one of her shows I jumped at the chance. We made flower crowns beforehand too, just for the sake of reliving our high school concert days (back when flower crowns were the it thing to wear to events).
Now, instead of galavanting to Atlanta on the weekends, I’m studying for midterms. I’ve already taken Contracts and Torts, but I still have Juris and Judgements and Introduction to Legal Research to go. Sorry if I’ve been a little MIA recently, but school comes first. And once I get done with all my midterms I’ll make a post about how it went, and maybe I’ll link some of my study sources.
Current favorite song is Roaring 20’s by Panic! at the Disco
Current favorite album is Lover by Taylor Swift
Current favorite artist is Lizzo
Happy Fourth – celebrate with some classic American tunes!
Sadly summer is drawing to a close. I’m packing up all my things and getting ready to move into a new house in Athens. I’m really excited about starting back to school again this August, but I’m even more excited to finally get to see all my friends again!
The only way I manage to make it through the three hour drive from Asheville to Athens is either listening to music or podcasts. Luckily I’ve made three in anticipation of next week’s travels, and they’re all based off books I read this summer.

What are your favorite songs of the summer? Have you read anything good?
Happy Homecoming to students of the University of Georgia! Get hyped – this entire week is a party just for you!
I promise this isn’t all I listen to, even though it seems like it some weeks.
P.S. my friends are probably glad I’ve taken a Hamilton Hiatus (because I’ve had a serious voice-crush on Lin Manuel Miranda since his carpool karaoke sesh)
As some of my more recent followers know, the band my dad plays in performed this Saturday. They’re called The Procrastinators. My dad plays drums, and occasionally can keep the rhythm straight (haha kidding, he’s a great percussionist).
I love coming to their concerts and watching them play! This week’s playlist is inspired by Saturday’s set lists.
Big/Little reveal was today (eek!) so, Little One, this playlist is for you. Enjoy the vibes, the party, and the shenanigans of tonight. The Delta Gamma kangaroo fam loves you already!
Hello everyone! Me here. Just another weekly playlist that’s entirely not a playlist! Aren’t those the best? (don’t answer that…)
Anyways, let’s get right on down to business! Waaaaay back when, on August 6th, I saw Twenty One Pilots on their Emotional Roadshow tour. Social media, aka tumblr fangirls, claim the show to be “existential.” And while I do have a tumblr, I am not a fangirl. But I will say that they hit the nail on the head with this one. I’ve never been to a show where the singer crowd surfs in the equivalent of a human hamster ball, or one where the magic acts are commonplace.
These two could join the US Olympic gymnastics team given the amount of back flips I saw that Saturday night, not to mention the impressive flip off the piano. The physicality of the show is something I would’ve seen bands do in smaller venues. In the Infinity Arena in Duluth the impressive light displays and the audience of thousands the venue seems massive, but the touches of tumbling and aerobatics from Josh and Tyler the show became more personal.
Some of my favorite songs from the concert? None other than Migraine, Car Radio, Trees, The Judge, Heathens, Stressed Out, Hometown, and House of Gold.
Because I live my life trying to turn everything into a musical. Don’t you?
