Ugh, thank you for noticing. Do you follow me on Twitter? I apologize if you do, but fuck, today was so fucking bad.
I can’t get over how shitty today - outside of work - was.
And it’s all stupid stupid money issues. If I had just a couple hundred to like two-ish grand, it would fix everything I’m dealing with atm and that’s so fucking stupid imo.
Depends on what they are listening to right now, but I guess I’ll try to pick albums that helped me broaden my own taste/library. Uhhh let’s see.
Arctic Monkeys | AM
Amy Winehouse | Lioness: Hidden Treasures
John Mayer | Continuum
Lupe Fiasco | The Cool
Breezy Lovejoy | Cover Art
Yuna's self-titled debut
The Internet | Feel Good
Barcelona | Not Quite Yours
The Flavr Blue | Pisces
Ed Sheeran | +
I mean, it’s definitely not whole projects that have shaped my music taste now, I would have to say it was a song here and there that I stumbled upon in a bookstore or work or a coffee shop or obviously a music store that I surprised myself by liking, and it’s little things like that - single songs - that make me go searching for entire albums or projects.
But most of these albums were like.. I would say possibly landmarks where I can remember, like distinctly remember, it changing the way I looked at a certain genre or an artist. (I tried to avoid rap, I listened to garbage rap until I discovered Lupe.)
Thanks for asking these - not sure if it’s the same person, but it makes me feel like I have a wide selection but also a reminder that I have a lot more to go out and listen to.
I came home. I didn’t want to; I was having the best day at work, making the days of kids I’d probably never talk to again, and them making mine as well. It was great. I really depend on work during times like these.
On a break, I checked my phone and I got a text from Dad that said, “Talking to [Auntie] again. Just got off the phone, it was a half hour conversation.” He’s tired of it. I know it stresses him out whenever he gets a call from her because she never has anything good to say.
So I came home.
And Dad’s already asleep.
At least I think so. His bedroom door is open and I’m too scared to look inside. I start to walk up the stairs but I notice the room downstairs has its doors closed, and it’s always usually open. I peak inside and my stepmom is sleeping in it.
I connect the dots. Dad doesn’t usually sleep this early. He got overwhelmed from stress from the phone call probably.
In turn, he took the stress out on my stepmom. They probably got into an argument, and she chose to sleep downstairs.
Dad left the door open so if she chose to sleep upstairs with him, the door wouldn’t squeak open to wake him up, but more than likely, it was his way of saying sorry.
Of course, it’s all a guess. But I’ve been better at guessing as I’ve grown older, just ‘cause it’s happened so many times. I hate that my aunt drags my dad into things like this, ‘cause it leads to my stepmom and he not getting along for a little bit and I feel like I’m the cause of it all.
All ‘cause I haven’t finished my AA yet. Sigh.
You’re so selfish.
The world doesn’t revolve around you.
I’ll try to choose the ten I listen to the most (according to iTunes), I guess. In no order:
Frank Ocean | Channel Orange
Gabe Bondoc | Timing
Dumbfoundead | Take the Stares
Miguel | Kaleidoscope Dream
Justin TImberlake | both 20/20 Experience albums
Ariana Grande | Yours Truly
Kendrick Lamar | good kid, m.A.A.d. City
Nas | Illmatic (10th Anniversary)
Breezy Lovejoy | O.B.E. Vol. 1
It’s funny ‘cause I don’t feel like I listen to most of these a lot, but I think it’s ‘cause it was during a time where I didn’t have as much music and these were the mains I listened to, whereas now I just listen to a lot more than so-and-so, and I have a lot more to listen to.
Literally everyone I asked told me “don’t die” as if it’s funny or something.
So.. you’re saying to just kick, push, and coast?
It does, I tested it in the bathroom
