So I made a twenty-five song tMG playlist for each of the four seasons…because a) I live in the tropics and don’t want to forget what seasons feel like, and b) I work in the jungle alone for eight hours a day and have nothing better to do than obsessively construct playlists.
Also, JD mentions seasons/months/meteorological phenomena so often in his lyrics that I end up strongly associating a lot of tMG songs with a specific time of year. Anyway, considering that August is almost over…here’s the summer playlist I came up with (plus some leaves because I am a child who can’t handle blank space.)
We really didn’t have enough money, enough people, or enough time for our road trip. I almost called it off when I originally started planning it. But there will never be a good time to travel the country for four weeks, just like there will never be a good time to quit your job, read that book, or join a gym. You will probably never have enough money, time, connections, willpower, whatever—to feel ready to make a dream happen. And this is the lesson I learned: eventually you have to stop giving yourself excuses and make the jump.
