Playlists of 2023

Ello love! It has been ages since I’ve posted something, so as an effort to be both more active on here and to procrastinate my coming doom (aka, a two-week immersive experience without my phone or hair products or my rabbit squishmallow 🙀), here are some of my favorite songs I’ve been listening to lately. They’re a mashup of my “on repeat” Spotify and YouTube playlists.

Should you choose to listen to my Spotify playlists, please be warned that some of them have songs with light cursing/slightly suggestive lyrics. (Just letting you know). I’ve also astricked the most questionable songs.

Please enjoy. I hope you find your new favorite song. Please don’t judge me.

Indie Vibes//Mood I Can’t Quite Name

I use the word vibes too much, upon realization. However, there is no other way to describe this playlist, really. It’s indie music that feels like 3am and homesickness. Vibes.
