’16 Soundtrack: March

’16 Soundtrack playlist for March by Jenay Ross



Don’t let my tired eyes fool you. I’m really happy.

One of my main focuses for 2016 is to surround myself with people who make an effort to develop genuine connections. Knowing where someone works, what they did last week and which neighborhood they live in (all info probably made known by way of short-lived small talk and a peek at Instagram) is fine and dandy, but also boring. I often feel like I don’t actually know who people are, and vice versa, no matter how much time I spend with them. I’d like to give and take more, and this isn’t a novel thought. I see plenty of other millennials discussing social interaction.

Back to why I’m happy. The people who are currently in my life bring me joy. The girl gang. My other close pals. Family. Twitter and Instagram followers who are becoming real life friends. And even a boy. I have a badass support system made up of some of the most motivated and creative people I know, and I’m thankful to be a part of a community that lifts each other up. As an added bonus, most of these folks are always game to throw it down on the dance floor, so I’ve pretty much reached my personal squad goals.

My soundtrack for this month is a collection that has resonated with me during the last couple of weeks. I could have just listed  The 1975’s new album, “I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it” because it’s fantastic, but the other songs I’ve fallen in love with deserve some attention too. There’s one thing I want to point out before we get to the music. Until I watched the music video for “Bloodsport ’15” last week, I had no clue Raleigh Ritchie is Jacob Anderson, aka Grey Worm from Game of Thrones. *babe alert*
