Just a few songs that remind me of the last few weeks of my college fall semesters, when I’d cross the campus with chai tea in hand. Happy winter :)

This Thanksgiving/end-of-year sales weekend seemed like my busiest yet.

Some thoughts on gratitude from people who are much smarter than I am.
Extremely spooky ideas for tonight. Happy Halloween!
Songs I’ve been listening to recently featuring Melissa Polinar, Justin Timberlake, Wild Cub, and other fine musical artists.
