1. I might have finally reached a pause break for Mr. Vek, but only because I listened to his album like four times this week.

Comment:

So there was an intern meet-up thing on the rooftop at work and they let me put on my giant “social” playlist. It’s full of music that someone always ends up critiquing or complaining about and I always get pissed about. Seriously, it’s a playlist of like 330 or more songs that I love and just throw on random. I don’t care if you don’t like “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” because that’s just classic music. Enjoy your “Party Rock Anthem” or whatever. I’m just saying, I put a lot of time into this and all I want is for you to nod your head when you listen.

And yet, I was greatly relieved that a couple of interns really liked it. Even some of my coworkers. I mean, my blog has mostly turned into a diary about my iPod by now, so nothing brings me more joy than knowing that sitting in my room and typing some words about things that make me nod my head is actually pretty okay.
