It's surreal to think that I have had this blog for a year now. I remember that it was exactly around this time last year that I was bored out of my mind while trying to do homework, and I had run out of ways to procrastinate. Since then, I have changed so much as a person, and I think that those of you who have been reading this since the beginning can tell. I created this blog just to track how my taste in music changes and when I look back on old posts, it's weird to see how I changed as a person as well. Last week was the first week of my last quarter in community college, and it hit me just how different things are going to be in a couple of months: I'm going to transfer to a completely new college, the friends I became so close to are transferring too, and I will finally be taking classes for what I want to do for the rest of my life. Alright, enough of that! I know that many of you just finished spring break, so let me know how that went (and for those of you who unfortunately are out in the real world and did not have a spring break, tell me about something fun that you recently did)! I went to Santa Barbara and Los Angeles for a couple of days with my friends, and I had an amazing time, although I have to say that it just reinforced that I am really not much of a big party person. Now that I am back at school, I have readjusted to my night owl ways (although I have improved so much; I went to bed at 1 yesterday!) and have gone back to doodling in class. I was at school yesterday for a total of fourteen hours and I have never come so close to stabbing myself with a fork and calling it quits. Luckily, I just doodled for a while and read about 200 pages of "Catcher In the Rye." Now, onto the song. I have developed quite an affinity for "chillstep" and this is one of the first songs that really got stuck in my head. When the song first started playing, I didn't think much of it, but by the end, I was mesmerized. Veela's voice is enchanting and the soothing, yet riveting, background music just captivates me every time. If you do decide to give this song a listen, don't stop half way or after a minute; listen to the whole thing and you will most likely thank me!
