Post and playlist by Kayla Fernandez

Hello! It has been quite awhile since we last posted. I was currently going through a period in my life where I had absolutely no clue what I was doing. Transitioning into adulthood, studying for finals and finding a decent job stressed me out. This is something every one goes through, but me being my stubborn self I felt like I was alone in this. I didn’t have any motivation to go photograph shows and write about music reviews; I felt drained.
It wasn’t until February where I genuinely felt happy. As funny as it seems the cure to my sadness was listening to synthy music, especially early 2010s indie pop. In a way it was like a wakeup call telling me everything is going to be fine. I realized the only way I am going to happy with myself is to take action with my choices. I compiled a little playlist of some new tunes that always put a smile across my face. Enjoy! I hope a few tracks make your head bop.
