It is absolutely blustery and grey in my little corner of the world today!  Where are you Mr. Sun?  So in the spirit of would-be, wished-for summer, I conjured up a magical summer playlist of my current favourite melodies, and hopefully the sun will come out to dance!

  • Young Blood - The Naked and Famous
  • Rolling in the Deep - Adele
  • Kick Drum Heart - The Avett Brothers
  • Daniel - Bat for Lashes
  • Dancing on My Own - Robyn
  • Black River Killer - Blitzen Trapper
  • Skinny Love - Bon Iver
  • Barton Hollow - The Civil Wars
  • You've Got the Love - Florence + the Machine
  • Down the Line - Jose Gonzalez
  • Little Lion Man - Mumford & Sons
  • Wagonwheel - Old Crow Medicine Show
  • Why Do You Let Me Stay Here? - She & Him
  • Always Like This - Bombay Bicycle Club
  • Paris is Burning - Ladyhawke
  • I'm Yours - Jason Mraz
And of course:
  • Cruel Summer - Bananarama

Don't judge!

What would you add?

I've got this playlist on right now with my windows open wide, so, you know, the sun can hear.  You should do the same, this is the kind of music that needs air!

Hello Again!

Dearest friends, it has been some time I know. After a short stint on Tumblr, I deleted. I'm sorry. And I'm sorry for saying sorry so much, I must stop, as it gets redundant and annoying.

How are you all, sweet buttercups? I have finally graduated from college, although I don't get my physical diploma until June 1st.
So I am currently unemployed and dreaming of travels to foreign lands. It's hard, and a bit embarrassing when I see the rest of my fellow students out getting wonderful jobs, but I just keep reminding myself that I need to do my own thing. My current dream is to spend a year working and studying abroad. Perhaps in my mother's motherland of Germany (where I can hopefully become fluent), or in the UK or even New Zealand.

I've come to some revelations recently:

  • I don't want to spend my life living in one place
  • I don't want to spend my life doing one thing
  • My fears are stemmed from crippling perfectionism
  • 9-5 cubicle work is hell (for me)
  • I don't want a boyfriend anytime in the near future-I want to do my own thing, on my own terms
  • I need to become wayyy more independent
  • I need to stop doing what I think others want me to do, and make my own choices
  • I need to actually do what I say I'm going to do!
Have you come to any realizations about yourself recently?

I think I will start making some changes to this blog to make it more of a source of inspirational homework (homework for dreamers?) mixed in with my own realizations. Do you have any suggestions or things you'd like to read about along those lines?

I've created a new email at: if you have any suggestions, ideas, questions, or just want someone to chat with!
I also think I may change my url to something more appropriate, and perhaps my name as well. I hope you'll tag along for the ride!
