Currently Listening To: September-October 2016

A couple of months ago, I started college (I say I started around September because the end of August is technically around September) as a little baby freshman (I guess I do look like a baby considering the fact that I look 13 for a 19-year-old).

I don’t live on campus. I drive. Despite the fact I’m missing out on the full college experience, at least I can save what little money I can actually save (which is virtually none considering my family situation - and yes, it is no secret that I sacrificed my own happiness in regards to choosing a college. I suppose I’m not that heartless after all).
To occupy those dreadfully boring 15-30 minutes (depending on traffic because I am totally running around on a highway that intersects a highway that probably goes halfway across the state and has awful traffic during rush hour peak), I finally started utilizing Hoopla (I got an account a year or two ago and never used it again).

A very fun word in and of itself as the name of an app. Not as many music choices as Spotify does, which I’m a little disappointed in. Plus, I can’t borrow Halsey’s new album with her song, “Castle,” which I love, because of the Parental Advisory label tacked on there.

Except now I can’t get Lorde either.

Getting a little sidetracked with the complaining. But still! I’m disappointed.
At least Hamilton is available. (I haven’t seen the actual musical, therefore I am not a true fan.)
Anyways, to keep the blog somewhat active while I figure out my college, work and life endeavors, I decided to go and share some of the music I’ve been listening to for the past couple of months. (Let’s just say there’s actually a lot of music, so I’m just listing albums.)

The Weeknd - Beauty Behind the Madness
Various Artists - Finding Neverland The Album
Bea Miller - Not An Apology
Skylar Grey - Don’t Look Down
Lorde - Pure Heroine (Extended)
Linkin Park - Meteora
Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory
Colbie Caillat - Gypsy Heart
Christina Perri - Head or Heart
Demi Lovato - Demi
Various Artists - Ultimate Pitch Perfect (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
Various Artists - Pitch Perfect 2: Special Edition (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
