the leaves are falling and the city’s blue again

Posted on

The rain is falling again and that’s a wonderful thing for my music consumption. It seems there are few things better than a record on the turntable while the rain outside my window adds to the orchestration.

The changing of seasons has brought back a couple of unwanted friends, depression and anxiety. Like this time last year, work is starting to kick up with deadlines coming closer and closer. Unlike this time last year, I’m already on SSRI medication and regularly meeting with a therapist, so it remains to be seen how depression and anxiety will take hold, if at all.

Adding to it all, new weekly performance requirements have been implemented at work and I haven’t been able to meet those goals yet after three weeks. I’ve always been the type to work as hard as I can to be the reliable one wherever I’ve worked, so it’s a difficult transition to be the one on the team who hasn’t been able to adjust and could be considered the weak link. Here’s to hoping I can make the adjustment soon.

I’ve made a playlist for today and embedded it below. My goal is to start making multiple playlists per week that reflect where I am. Please follow me on Spotify if you enjoy the playlists and send your feedback my way.

Other recommended listening this week:
Copeland – Ixora
Jimmy Eat World – Integrity Blues
Radiohead – A Moon Shaped Pool
James Blake – The Colour in Anything
