It has been quite some time since we have last spoken and I have no explanation to offer other than that I took a necessitated, although unintentionally prolonged, break. The past few months have been some of the most hectic I have ever experienced and while I cherish this outlet dearly, I decided to temporarily put it on the back burner for the sake of my own mentality. As a senior in high school, my typically uneventful schedule has been occupied with endless college applications and repeated SAT’s, restricting me to a monotonous routine, lacking the freedom I once obtained. While the guilt of my neglect sits upon my shoulders, I finally feel as though I am in a stable enough state to return to the comfort of regularly uploading.
Rather than going back to my previous strategy of accumulating songs for a monthly playlist, I have tampered with the idea of no longer limiting myself to a strict agenda and transitioning to occasional themed playlists instead. Unfortunately, I find myself unmotivated when acting upon a timeline, causing the joy of sharing my music each month to become a burden. I also hope to continue writing reviews of concerts that I attend, and fortunately, I have a few pretty extraordinary shows on the horizon.
Next month, I will finally be fulfilling a six-year dream of seeing Two Door Cinema Club live, as they tour their newly released album, Gameshow. Also in December, I will be attending The Growlers’ City Club tour, which happens to be my latest obsession. Foxygen awaits me in the new year, as I will be seeing them for the first time in April with one of my dearest companions, and I am sure that many more are to come.
Since my last concert review of The 1975 back in April, I saw them two additional times, along with HUNNY, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes, Halsey, Bad Suns, Peter Bjorn and John, and Tame Impala twice. It’s been quite the year and I anticipate sharing my upcoming events with you.
While my intentions of curating this blog were solely music based, I find interest in discussing other topics as well. I would really appreciate your feedback, as this blog is just as much yours, as it is mine. I cannot thank you enough for your understanding and patience, as I sit at my desk typing this on my day off, I can assure you that I’ve never felt more at home.
