January Playlist

January Playlist

So the glorious month of January is nearly over. My midterms are (blessedly) done, so tomorrow marks the start of a new semester (though admittedly not much changes). For me, that means it's time to start thinking a little more seriously about my future. In a week I start picking courses for my senior year, and I'm going to start making more legitimate college lists...! I have 3 more semesters of high school left, and I'm going to make them count.

In other news, my cover of "Pompeii" by Bastille (which you can find here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9eotfQsik0) has passed 6,000 views! I'm really excited about how well Google AdWords has been working for me, and with the response I've been getting via word-of-mouth. Please check it out if you haven't already, and spread the word! Plus, you can tweet it to Dan Smith (@BASTILLEdan) and get him to watch it, too!

That'll do it for my January playlist. I hope everybody's 2014 is off to a good start, that your midterms and finals went well, that your winter breaks were restful and festive. So far, my new year is living up to expectations; I'm happy and peaceful and I haven't felt much turbulence. Still, I remain prolific; this month I wrote twelve songs...the calendar might rotate but some things never change :) Love y'all, keep checking this thing (if anybody does at all) and good luck in February! Who knows? Maybe this year you'll have a Valentine (or way better than that, you'll go to the Imagine Dragons concert on February 14, to which I am forbidden from going...argh). See ya soon!
