3. New Blog
I’m almost 25 and I have no idea what my “passion” in life is. No idea. However, I’ve recently been trying to figure out what it is that I genuinely enjoy doing, and writing is one of those things. I’m by no means a fantastic writer, but I think that the more you write, the better you can become (aka what every single person in writing tells you). So in addition to this blog- that I always forget to write in- I’ve started another at morewritingroom.wordpress.com (creative, right?) where I’m going to write more freely with no set genre. Some posts are short and might just be something that I wanted to tweet but 140 characters just wasn’t enough, and some are a little more detailed. It’s basically all over the place. Regardless, I’m hoping that it helps improve my writing and maybe become a “thing.” Who knows.

2. Orange is back
Don’t act like you’re not excited. I don’t care if you haven’t even seen the first 2 seasons. I know you’re all just as psyched as I am. It’s been a loooong year and waiting for this new season did NOT help, but all will be well on June 12. Netflix will once again be unleashing 14 new episodes that I will try to watching in increments, but will most likely binge-watch in 2 days and then be left hanging, alone again. BUT I did just read an article that Netflix has already confirmed a 4th season, so all hope is not lost!

3. New Music
twitterI’ve been a little off my music-game for a while, so I’m listening to new albums a little late. Whatever, at least I’m doing it now. So yes, when I finally got around to listening to Drake’s “If You’re Reading This it’s Too Late” in April (it debuted in February, but probably leaked much earlier) I tweeted every lyric like I was the first person to ever discover him. It was magical for me. Thankfully, I was reminded that I need to get my shit together and get on top of all the albums that were/are dropping. Here’s what I’m listening to right now:

And I’ll never get over how amazing Tay Swift’s new video of the remixed version of “Bad Blood.”

Now Playing: A$AP Rocky

A$AP Rocky

With his newest album “LongLiveASAP” just being dropped, A$AP is becoming more and more popular.  I am a new fan and I hate that I didn’t discover his sick flow earlier (would have given my friends a break from listening to The Weeknd in my car).

Goldie

The first song that introduced me to A$AP was Goldie, and I’ve been obsessed ever since.  The beat is so raw and his flow is sick as hell.

And the red bottom loafers just to compliment the mink

So much swag.

Ridin’ (ft. Lana Del Rey)

As a general rule, anyone that collaborates with one of my favorite artists (here Lana Del Rey) is ok in my book.  While his lyrics aren’t nearly the equivalent to what he’s capable of, he still kills it next to my girl Lana.

1 Train (Ft. Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson, Big K.R.I.T.)

Seven verses from seven badass artists.  I had to read the lyrics while listening along to this one to get the full affect and it hit me hard.  It’s like a mix of Immortal Technique, 2Pac and old school 90’s rap (IMO) and I love every second of it.  It’s so raw and feels like a true freestyle beat. Definitely one of my favorites from Long.Live.A$AP.

F*ckin’ Problems (Ft. Drake, Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz)

A friend of mine recently gave me shit for not hearing of this song earlier- apparently I’ve been slacking when it comes to updating my iPod- my B.  Regardless, this beat is sick and the collaboration of rappers is beyond amazing.  Kendrick Lamar has been catching my eye as of late, and this track definitely left me craving more (post coming soon).  Drake is an obvious fav of mine, and I love when he busts out with his gangster side. Also, the girls are sexy as hell in the video.

You’ll notice that I disregard 2 Chainz because as another general rule, I hate anything his name is on, purely because I hate his name.  Obviously I’ve made some exceptions and this single was one of them.
