my playlists

i’ve seen these concept playlists going around and i really wanted to give them a shot so here you go

you’re drinking a strawberry shake in a busy 1950′s styled diner when someone cute walks in and time seems to slow down 

you’re stoned on a rooftop staring up at the stars with someone who makes your hands sweaty (in a good way though)

you’re driving really fast on a bridge at 3 am and your heart is too full for your chest

you were so angry that you punched a hole in the wall but now you’re just hollow and numb and your hand hurts really fuckin bad (but it’ll be alright because your hand will heal and things will get better) 

you didn’t ask for playlists but here

all are from { my spotify }

dancing around the room with wet hair and mismatched socks

these songs give me unrealistic expectations for my first date and I’m kinda okay with that

rain is when the clouds cry and my soul wants to sing

that one person who sits in the corner brooding listens to this as they stare at everyone

let’s sneak out on the roof just to stare at the stars while the wind blows around us

you really don’t want to talk to me if this is playing

it’s dark and we’re running through dimly lit streets, sitting and staring and not caring and feeling too much

when everyone leaves and it’s just me alone at night on my bed with my laptop

never been in a relationship but I made a breakup playlist anyway

there’s a stillness about the night that’s extremely calming

gay playlist concept: 

you’re in the lunch room when the boy you have a big ass crush on sits relatively close to your table and keeps making eye contact with you and your heart is about to beat out of your chest, you’ve been struggling to open this pudding cup for the last five minutes because your hands are shaking so bad, and you glance over to make sure he’s not watching you and fuck, he is

you’re stoned af sitting on the sidewalk at 3am eating a shitty convenience store bought ice cream bar when the sound of a bike in the parking lot catches your attention. when you look over, you nearly drop your ice cream in shock. it’s the weed, you tell yourself. you’re just really fucking stoned because there, walking his bike across the lot, is your crush at 3 in the fucking morning. maybe if you sit still enough he won’t notice you. despite your heart thundering in your chest and your brain frying itself in its panic, you risk a glance over and oh. oh shit. he’s right beside you and he’s smiling. “can i join?” he asks. you panic. “no.” instead of getting pissed, like you are at yourself (you fucking idiot!) he laughs and sits right down, on the ground, beside you. his knees are bony and his legs are so long and fuck fuck fuck he’s so cute. 

you’re at a party debating whether or not you should just steal a fifth of vodka and dip out when you spot him in the kitchen. his face is flushed and his forehead is kinda sweaty but he still looks good. the cute son of a bitch. now you really need that fifth of vodka. but then again being drunk always makes you a little more sensitive so maybe you should get high. yeah, definitely high. you manage to push your way through the throng of grinding teenagers to the quiet(er) back porch. you’re halfway through a joint when the glass sliding door opens up behind you. it’s him. he doesn’t ask to sit down this time, he just does, and even holds out his hand. you pass him the joint and oh. he’s hot af smoking. also, technically, this is a indirect kiss. so point one for you in this gay agenda. you’re about to say something, anything, to fill the silence, when a hand on your cheek silences you and you’re kissing, he’s kissing you, and everything explodes

you can listen to this playlist here

hi guys, i thought i’d make a playlist of the music i listen to when i study. this kind of music helps me focus & get in the mood to study, i don’t know why. 
i’m not sure how i should describe this playlist but i would say it’s kind of –soft, calming, dreamy and (generally) slow. 
hope you like it!
