Mixtape 04: Take Me Over

MixtapePhew! Hi guys! I’m back! Seven weeks and seven countries later, I’ve returned to the grand ol’ US of A full of stories and more exhausted than I’ve ever been in my entire life. (Maybe that last part isn’t 100% correct, but you get the gist) Add the fact that I’ve just emerged from a wacky and wild 3-day music festival in the city by the bay, and you can understand that I’m basically running on vapors at this point. And the fun doesn’t stop! Tomorrow, all of our furniture is arriving at our brand-spanking-new apartment. So much excitement, so little time/energy. Such is life.

To reflect how crazy-go-nuts this summer has been, I’m giving you guys a little sneak peek at what I’ve listened to for the past three months. I realize that it’s been a cool nine months since I last published a mixtape, so this particular playlist encompasses my state of mind upon graduating from college, as well as the general euphoria/contact high of experiential traveling. There have been a ton of ups/downs in the mix, but I’d say the overall tone is pretty energetic.

What songs have YOU been listening to this summer?! I’d love to know!
