Do You Listen to Music at Work?

Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t. I get too distracted by my favorite auditory medium- podcasts- so music provides a nice background noise while I tap tap tap away at my keyboard, as one does.

Listen Up

There are periods of time when I am obsessed with a single artist or song, and times where I am really into one genre. Lately though, I’ve been feeling less of those intense emotions towards music.

Artist Feature: Alex Siegel

A year and a half ago, I took a magical college class on California native plants in which I got to travel around the state and go on hikes with 23 other amazing humans.

Situational Songs for the Spring

  Asking what I’m listening to is almost like asking how I feel. In the spirit of that and in celebration of some sunny weather, here are some songs I’ve been enjoying and the situations I’ve been listening to them in.   When the sun is out – FINALLY Synapson – Djon Maya Maï Feat. Victor Démé (Listen here) This…
