Playlist: Getting Over It

playlists, Writing

My theme words for the past few months have been “Get Over It.” I even put them on the newest update of my vision board. I like this mantra because sometimes in life you just have to move on from things regardless of whether or not you’re ready. Here’s a playlist and my favorite lyrics for moving on from the things and people life did or didn’t give you.

  1. Darling Don’t – Silver : “Darling don’t pull me back into your gravity.”
  2. Ready Yet – Sasha Sloan : “I just want to be your friend again but there’s some shit I can’t forget, I don’t think I’m ready yet.”
  3. Howl – Declan McKenna : “I don’t care for attention that much.”
  4. Pepsi / Coke Suicide – Elvis Depressely : “Truest love, void on fire, you have haunted my desire.”
  5. Hurt – Sasha Sloan : “I probably shouldn’t sleep over, ’cause I know that I’m making it worse.
  6. Life Time Warranty – Cyberbully Mom Club : “I regret to inform you that I am not the girl you knew.”
  7. Empty – Kevin Abstract : “I love my mom, I hate my boyfriend.”
  8. Dreams – Wet : “Some days just aren’t good for anything at all.”
  9. SAD! – XXXTENTACION : “Who am I? Someone that’s afraid to let go.”
  10. Be Careful – Cardi B : “Poured out my whole heart to a piece of shit.”
  11. Softens – Wet : “And you’ll need it most in the dark in the dead of the night.”
  12. Thank Your God – The Forestry : “So I’ll change my hair and get a tattoo, to remind myself I’m forgetting you.”
  13. Congratulations – MGMT : “I’d rather dissolve than have you ignore me.”
  14. Better – Mallrat : “At the time it was alright, but looking back I hurt my eyes.”
  15. It’s hard to get around the wind – Alex Turner : “And you can shriek until you’re hollow, or whisper it the other way.”
  16. “Sober – Childish Gambino : “And now that it’s over I’ll never be sober.”
  17. Up Up & Away – Kid Cudi : “They gon’ judge me anyway so whatever.”
  18. Mad Sounds – Arctic Monkeys : “Make you feel all right. They bring you back to life.”
  19. Same Drugs – Chance The Rapper : “Just remember happy thoughts.”
  20. Habits – Tove Lo : “Your gone and I gotta stay high all the time to keep you off my mind.”
  21. 1998 – Chet Faker : “Is it absurd for me to hurt?”
  22. Call Out My Name – The Weeknd : “I almost cut a piece of myself for your life.”
  23. Helena Beat – Foster The People : “Yea Yea and it’s ok.”
  24. 17 – Youth Lagoon – “My mother said to me, don’t stop imagining. The day that you do is the day that you die.”
  25. Feeling Ok – Best Coast : “When I get down, I get so down, but I’ll keep trying to stay this way.”

Some music for your rainy walks, warmer nights, and reading with the windows open.

  1. Get Away – Circa Waves
  2. DNA – Kendrick Lamar
  3. Pleaser – Wallows
  4. Watercolour Envy – Phoebe Green
  5. I’m Sorry (feat. shiloh) – Swell

Spring, for me, is very in between. Between being happy and sad, and with the way the year has gone so far I find myself feeling very hesitant. As the sun comes out, I am taking baby steps into the light. I learn new things about myself, as the earth is once again learning how to grow.

My advice for the week: Let people in. Solitude feels comfortable but it’s the uncomfortable, first gatherings with new friends that create memories and contentment.

Enjoy the cloudy days, the sunny ones, and enjoy Kendrick Lamar’s new album because that man is a poet.

“I don’t love people enough to put my faith in man.”

“The hurt becomes repetition, the love almost lost that.”

– Pride – Kendrick Lamar
