It’s hard..

June 2, 2015

It’s hard to maintain a blog like this, when it seems so hard to stay relevant sometimes. I know this is the major plight of the millenials: to have lots of ideas, but to not always have an outlet on which to place them. We are overqualified for most jobs, yet most places won’t hire non-experienced, but nobody has the experience either. And apparently life experience means nothing. Always try to learn, try to apply your skills to new things, keep going, it will pay off. So they said through all your years of schooling, or all those people who you interview well with that still turn around and say, “Well we don’t need you right now, but good luck in your search.” So you have all of this passion, this energy, this panache as it were, but nowhere to apply it. They tell you if you have a degree, a sound mind, and a willingness to adapt and learn and try new things that doors will open for you, but where are they, what are they? Tell us one thing and then other people are like, when are you gonna just settle? I’m not until i find just what I want. and you shouldn’t either. And also, if the door you want isn’t open to you, don’t stop trying to open it.

This first playlist reflects on my current no holds barred, no quarter, kicking the door in mentality. Taking a stand against tyrants and any others who may try and tear us down.  This attitude reflects the them of new beginnings for this time of year, the renewal of the green world, and a bigger passion for life and the world at large.  Mixed in there are some songs that are just a lot of fun to listen to or rock out to.  You will also notice the major permeation of 90’s music, which never seems to lose its relevancy.  A product of my times truly am I.

 

Second Playlist- Acrobat

2. Under The Influence- Matthew Good Band

3.Panic Switch- Silversun Pickups
