Lots of blogging about non-horse topics lately. It’s not that I no longer love my horse, but more that he isn’t doing anything exciting. We’re just waiting for one more week of restricted turnout & rest before I hop back on and see how he feels. I don’t even need to ice/poultice/wrap right now, so I’ve been a bit of a slacker horse mom and only hoof out to the barn a few times a week.
When I do go out, he alternates between making cute faces at me and terribly grumpy faces at the stallion next door. I’m sure all of you are very scared now.
So outside of that excitement, I don’t have much to talk about on the horse front. One thing that has been occupying my little raccoon brain lately is Spotify playlists.
Being a blogger means that I have to be at least a little bit narcissistic by nature. I mean, I write my rambling thoughts on the internet every day and expect people to read them… need I say more? Lately I’ve taken that narcissism one step further, and created a playlist on Spotify that would be the soundtrack to a movie about myself.
Because producers are just clamoring over me to make a movie of my life, har har har.
However, what I really like about collecting these songs in a single location is that they remind me of so many different parts of my past. Blink-182 and The Used for high school. Rufus Wainwright for college. The Avett Brothers & fun. for my early years in Austin, and so many songs for my relationship with Tim. These songs make me happy and sad all at the same time, but I lived them and I like looking back to them.
The playlist is always in flux, but if you’re a Spotify user and are interested you can check out the playlist here. There’s a wide variety of music on there, but some songs are more explicit so if you are of a sensitive nature with lyrics consider yourself warned.
I’m curious if anyone else ever does this? If you decide to make a soundtrack of your own, please share a link in the comments! Otherwise, what songs do you think you’d throw on your own personal soundtrack?
