College is a bizarre place.
It is not like the actual world. It is this vacuum of constant intoxication and twisted idealism. Going to classes on a campus is weird as hell. School is the only time all of these individuals will be grouped together like this–packed into classrooms like sardines, awkwardly sweating next to your potential future wife.
As much as college is about the whole higher education thing, it is also about forced socialization. You choose a major and a concentration and voilà, like robots or young wizards, you are sorted with kids with whom you share similar interests. You’ll spend years going to the same classes as these kids–some of them you will know and become friends with and others you will recognize but never really talk to.
Anyway, I’m not about to start naming the people in my major who I personally find appealing, but I will say that right now is the beginning of the wonderful season of cuddling. Fall is transitioning into winter, the temperature is dropping, and hearts are starting to collide in ways that a lot of people might find weird and cozy; because it is weird, and ridiculously cozy. I’m not going to say that we’re all going to find love, but a lot of moments that encompass the holidays and the experiences that come with them can be better explained in terms of the emotion derived from this week’s mix.
Whether you’re sitting by a fire, running through the city, enjoying the suburbs, missing someone at work, studying for finals, making out in a car by the hillside or just staring into that person’s eyes, this mix should cover almost all of those moments. Now go make those memories, and let this be the soundtrack.It’s called:
