Student Narrative

Dealing with a broken heart, isolation, and feelings of incompetence, I waded into 2019 armed with Spotify playlists as my only defense. 2019 marked a shift in my relationship with music. Songs were played over and over as mantras and tokens of comfort to alleviate my loneliness. Although I have entered 2019 from a dark place, I will be exiting from a year of personal reflection with a new found independence and self-love. This anthology of songs have safeguarded my emotional well-being. Viewing is recommended with the companion playlist but it can also stand alone.
