Are you procrastinating on any of your papers? Are you killing time one afternoon before a party?
Here are some songs to get you through that strange, in-between time. It’s a little bit inspiring and a little bit dreamy. Originally, and bear with me now, it was for a best friend’s ex-boyfriend at a mixtape exchange party. I ended the friendship with the boyfriend in solidarity with my BFF at the end of their relationship, but the ex and I reconnected this summer after a mutual friend had some troubles. I spiced up the playlist a bit for you guys, but I think I was dead on with the original personality. The kid was a space cadet, but passionate and focused about the things he cared about. Use these songs to help transition from school work to pre-party to late night SNL videos and back again.
