I am a big fan of making playlists. I make playlists for everything: parties, friends coming over, studying, doing homework (yes these are different things), and most importantly I think: everything I write for more than an hour ends up with its own writing playlist.
Now, I’m the queen of procrastinating (which tends to mean fiddling with a playlist for an hour or so before even starting), and I never seem to finish what I start writing (which is why I have about ten first chapters for different stories, but very little past that for any of them). Because of this I have learned two things: I am capable of making very specific playlists, and there are about ten songs (I rounded because ten was a prettier number) that end up on pretty much every playlist lately and are very motivating to actually get my work done. So I thought I’d share them.
Now, in no particular order, my motivation playlist:
- Non-Stop from the Hamilton Soundtrack
- Sophomore Slump (or comeback of the year) by Fall Out Boy
- Pas De Chavel by Panic! At the Disco
- It’s The End Of The World As We Know It by REM
- Anxiety By Good Charlotte
- Listen To Your Friends by New Found Glory
- Something’s Gotta Give by All Time Low
- High School Never Ends by Bowling For Soup
- This Isn’t Hogwarts and Strange Charm by Hank Green
- Here’s To The Zeroes by Marianas Trench
If you listen to the playlist, let me know how you liked it, or if it helped you! And if anyone else has a go-to motivation song leave it done in the comments!
I have my last test today (A pre-calculus final, kill me).
So, after today I’ll start tackling the backlog of tags and finish up the personal stories and discussion posts I promised you guys and am long over due for!
I’ll also be scheduling posts because June 11 to July 2 I am going to be at summer camp and have little to no internet access (I know, terrifying), and later that week July 8th I’ll be getting my wisdom teeth out and I really don’t trust myself to write coherent posts while loopy from painkillers. Though that would probably be hilarious.
Quick Note: I updated my about me page and added the links to where you can find me on a bunch of other sites if you want to check that out.
