March Playlist

Here are the songs I listened to most in March. Find monthly playlists from me on Spotify

Church – Fall Out Boy

Record – M A N I A

Favourite Lyrics: “If you were church, I’d get on my knees, confess my love. I’d know where to be, my sanctuary, you’re holy to me.”

Possibly Stump’s best vocals on this record. With gospel and RnB overtones, Church stands out from the rest of the tracks on this record.

Crazy = Genius – Panic! at the Disco

Record – Death Of A Bachelor

Favourite Lyrics: “You’re so straight like commuters with briefcases towing the line.
There’s no residue of a torturer inside of your eyes.”

Not a world a way from Fever‘s ‘There’s A Good Reason These Tables Are Numbered Honey…’ – think jazzy sax, fuzzy guitar and clever lyrics with a nod to The Beach Boys.

Brother – Kodaline

Record – Politics Of Living

Favourite Lyrics: “If I was dying on my knees you would be the one to rescue me
and if you were drowned at sea I would give you my lungs so you could breathe.”

The lyrics and video (it will make you tear up!), are both perfect. I’ve heard this one live and believe me, it’s stunning. Those dynamic harmonies sound just as good in real life.

I Fall Apart – Post Malone

Record – Stoney

Favourite Lyrics: “Now there’s too many thoughts goin’ through my brain and now I’m takin’ these shots like it’s Novocaine.”

This one surprised me – more emotive than I expected and decent enough vocals that are almost a little grungy.

 

Sorry Not Sorry – Demi Lovato

Record – Tell Me You Love Me

Favourite Lyrics: “Now, payback is a bad bitch and baby, I’m the baddest.
You fuckin’ with a savage, can’t have this, can’t have this and it’d be nice of me to take it easy on ya, but nah.”

One for the haters. Unapologetic with powerful vocals, Lovato is back on form after a quiet year.

What Happened In February…

Time for an update!

February was a weird one; January seemed to last 27 million days but February was here and gone in the blink of an eye!

I haven’t posted since the end of January. I had a couple of February posts drafted but time got away from me, I was sick, I had no wifi, I was sick again. I think the universe was conspiring against me!

I’ve been feeling a bit down too. I like to learn, be productive and have a routine, when that isn’t happening it really affects my mood. When that continues for more than a week or two my mental state takes a nose dive and suddenly I feel like the worst person in the world, like I haven’t achieved anything, like I’m worthless. I begin to agonise over every decision I’ve ever made, I compare myself to others, I hate how I look, I hate that I’m not where I thought I’d be by now. Any self esteem that I had disappears. I don’t want to interact with people, I don’t eat or sleep well. My motivation is non existent and exhaustion takes over. Writing new blog posts wasn’t even on my radar but I took some time to speak to friends about it (life pep talks ftw!), to write, read and doodle and I’m beginning to feel better.

February wasn’t all bad though – Even though I was sick I still had a lovely Valentine’s Day (celebrated on Pancake Tuesday cause we know what’s up). We went to see Black Panther, went for dinner in one of our favourite places, binge watched Friends and ate our weight in chocolate – heaven. I also had family over from the UK who I absolutely love spending time with. I’m going over there to see them at the end of the month, I can’t wait! I was really craving being outside for the whole month. I’m not what anyone would describe as ‘outdoorsy’ but I feel so at peace when I’m in a garden, a park, by the sea or just out for a walk. Last weekend, knowing that I’d been feeling run down and rubbish, my boyfriend drove us to Phoenix Park where we got coffee and went for a walk. It was freezing but so lovely. (No photos cause I’m a terrible blogger! lol)

Over the last few weeks I’ve posted a few tweets saying I was about to get back to the blog but something came up every single time that prevented me from doing it, I think I was jinxing myself!

I have some blog posts planned for the month though I probably won’t be posting as regularly as in January. I’ve got lots of family birthdays, the 3rd Annual Self Harm Awareness Conference with St. Patrick’s & Pieta House taking place in the Aviva and that trip to London. I’m also taking some time for learning, self improvement and getting outside once the snow stops so it’s a busy month ahead.

How was your February? Did you do Valentine’s Day or Pancake Tuesday? What are your plans for March?
