I really love making playlists, especially around a certain theme or month, but my problem is I listen to the same 100 songs, so it’s hard for me to make a new and different playlist each month. Ha.
But I did it, because this month actually has quite a bit of new and new-to-me tunes so, here we are. Also, Paramore, aka my favorite band of all time since I was 12, announced a new album next month and released a single, so that’s why there’s an overabundance of Paramore on this small playlist.
As far as April has gone for me, it’s been a whirlwind. I’m packing up all my possessions and preparing to move to a new apartment next weekend. It’s an interesting time, because I’m very ready to move in to a nicer place, but I’ve been living in my college apartment for three years now, so it’s odd to think about that not being my home anymore.
Last weekend, I got to be press at our student run (but still a big deal) fashion show at the university, which Tim Gunn attended. That was mind-blowing, listening to him talk, because I used to watch Project Runway religiously back in the days when I thought I wanted to be a famous fashion designer, so it was awesome. And then, two days later, Laverne Cox was on campus for our speaker series, and my friend and I got third row seats to see her, which was incredible and surreal. She was so intelligent and well spoken and emotional and hilarious, I loved every second.
This weekend, I’m attending my boyfriend’s college graduation and my one of my high school best friend’s baby shower, so a lot of very adult-y things happening. And next weekend, I’ll be at my best friend’s college graduation Saturday morning, then moving to the new apartment on Sunday.
Like I said, a whirlwind.
I’m currently working on an exciting DIY project that should be up either tomorrow or Friday. I think it’s going to be really awesome, so I can’t wait to show it to you.
But anyways, I’ll stop rambling and get to the music!
