Check out this mix on @8tracks: when I fall in love I’m a shitty version of myself by matildawhiskey.

I made a very similar mix to this last October, and listening to it recently, I realized that most of the songs were especially relevant right now. So I updated it: took out the ones that weren’t relevant and replaced them with ones that were.
The Murder City Devils - Old Flame
World/Inferno Friendship Society - The Naughty Little Rat Makes New Friends
Reverend Glasseye - All of my Friends
Simon Joyner - Your Old Haunts
Wiliam Elliott Whitmore - Old Devils
Ryan Adams - To Be Young (Is to Be Sad, Is to Be High)
Sundowner - Poet of Trash
Elliott Brood - Notes
Adam Gnade & The Hot Earth All-Stars - The New Old West
Tattle Tale - Arrows
Hurray for the Riff Raff - Is That You?
Neko Case - Hold On, Hold On
Crooked Fingers - Black Candles
Spirit Family Reunion - Green Rocky Road
The Deslondes - Passin’ Through
Tom Waits - Pay Me
Comet Gain - ‘Sad Love’ and Other Short Stories
Regina Spektor - Carbon Monoxide
Tori Amos - Wild Way
Concrete Blonde - Side of the Road
The Pine Hill Haints - The Parting Glass

Why do adults think “So what’s your major? Oh, and what are you going to do with that?” is acceptable small talk

What am I going to do with my degree? Hang it on the wall and cry, probably

LOL - or you can answer - use my english degree and passion for learning to end up working in film, media, and tech to become more successful than anyone I know with a business degree… just like 80% of the other liberal arts majors that I know who are designing video game backgrounds, composing music for film and games, running their own companies, etc.

Following your passion helps you learn proactive problem solving, how to work fast and efficient, and how to prioritize to be successful. If I can do it for my own art I can do it for you. Boom.

Don’t let the lie that Liberal Arts = Poverty continue on.

were once as soft as water.
And that’s the tragedy of living.” Iain S. Thomas (via bl-ossomed)
