Dear readers,

Gone are the days when mornings werent a rushed frenzy out the door to barely make it to lecture; gone are the days when you could lay back against the fresh grass and let your thoughts free. Its been three weeks since schools started and the familiar surge of anxiety feels like an express train and Im tied to its track and no matter how much I try, I cant escape its wrath – ready to demolish me at its path.

Sometimes, when the stress gets to me and I feel like Im drowning with work and school, I prepare an escape. It comes in the form of a playlist Ive compiled for myself and those who need to get out. Let the vibrant, indie vibes lull you back to chill summer days with a cool drink by your side. Wherever your happy place may be, I hope you enjoy your Reckless Abandon.
