winter hymnal

So…I LOVE music. ♫♫♫. Not many people don’t so I want to share with you the website I go to to listen to music no matter what my mood. Its called 8tracks (for all of you college kids, they are what came from that hiatus was on).  The site is a handcrafted radio network and is a great alternative to Pandora.

When you go to the site, you can choose tags based on what music you want to listen to and then select one of the pre-made playlists that have been compiled by the site’s members. If you create an account, you can “❤” playlists so that they are saved for the next time you get on. You can also create your own mixes for personal or others’ enjoyment. I created one yesterday…it’s called “winter hymnal” and you can listen to it by clicking on the image below:

I’ve already had a good amount of likes and plays- I hope you like it too! Enjoy ♬

big 2-2!

Today I turn 22!

It has been such a great year and I am excited to see what this one holds. In this next year I will be graduating from college, starting my first real full time job (well, looking for it at least), and travelling! So far today my mother took me to lunch at Mediterranean Tea Room on Devine Street and now I am about to go get coffee with my boyfriend David. Tonight I am getting together with my friends for trivia and fun! Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weather!

Love, the newly turned 22-year-old <3
