X, Chamomile & Deadlines

What ever happened to Midterm breaks being the time to lounge? Gone are the days when teachers gave homework, and you’d never do it, then go to school the next week praying they forgot about it. Then it was fun, there was never really any consequences – well apart from detention, and maybe being a bit slower than those who did it. University is a different ball game, if you don’t do the work…you won’t get the grade, and even if you do do the work, you might not get the grade you think you deserve. Sigh.

Ed Sheeran keeps me on track though, as well as the calming effects of Chamomile tea. Which brings me to the title of this post. X, I can’t get enough of this album. I’ve literally had it on replay for more than two weeks. EVERY song on the album is a hit…to me anyway.

A little tip: get a head start on the workload as soon as possible, so they don’t pile up (easier said than done, but doable)

Below are some of my fave songs from the album.

MUSIC: Kelela

Until a few days ago, I didn’t know there was an artist by the name of Kelela, but luckily I found her IG page on one of my never ending Instagram cruises, and as cliché as this sounds, I think she’s a breath of fresh air, her voice filled with an emotion, and a calmness that makes you want to leave whatever it is you’re doing, take a seat, and chill. Listen to her latest track – “A Message” & stay tuned on the Video, the Visuals are pretty cool and be sure to check her out on SoundClound.
