The Story of My Freshman Year in a Playlist for Girls Who Need Music in Their Day ...

By Natalie

Summer tunes. Summer’s blues. This is the story of my freshman year (in a playlist).

That summed up my mood change from ending summer break and jumping right into college. Then, there comes winter and spring break, which is always nice too.

As a college student, I always had my to go-to playlist for different reasons. One of them being how introverted I was, refusing to start small talk with anyone. I was a shy kid.

It may be a bit over three years since I graduated college, but you may recognize some of these artists and their famous tracks (or, infamous ones; depending how you see it).

So…what was a day like for me? Here's the story of my freshman year (in a playlist).

1 5am

John Mayer’s “Waiting on the World to Change” – waking up for the day (for whatever reason, I decided that 7am classes were for the best)

2 6:45am

John Mayer’s “Half of my Heart” – ah, yes when John and Tay Tay were dating, which made the perfect tune walking from my car to the first class of the day.

3 7am Class

Seriously, having fifty-minute classes was the best.

4 8am

Desire’s “Under Your Spell” – That Ryan Gosling’s “Drive” was an awesome film! The soundtrack was just as great, especially when I developed a crush on another fellow film major. It did not help that he was also an actor. Every girl’s dream, right?

5 8:45am

Darkness’ “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” – I was so emotional and easily got upset when the boy did not seem to notice me, or was just not interested. I had a tendency of matching my mood to the perfect song. Plus, this was pre-Tay Tay’s “Shake It Off.”

6 9am Class

I got through another one and then more music.

7 10-10:45am

Drake and The Doors - honestly, anything during my lunch break. Something to kill the time before my following back-to-back last two classes.

8 11am Class

Almost done!

9 12pm

John Mayer’s “Half of my Heart” – what can I say, I was obsessed with this tune, always something that felt right to start and end the day with while walking back to my car.
