New And Timeless: Week 105


12FV

I sit before you today with a new rendition of the former YOLO list. After Drake used the phrase in his song, I wasn’t sure if it was going to be a good thing or a bad thing. This was mainly because I had been using it for over a year, and I was still set on sending a message with it. Turns out it was definitely a bad thing, and the name now has such a stigma to it.

The idea of building up your life to have a good retirement has always bugged me. How do I know I’m not going to get hit by a car on my way home today? Or how do I know I won’t get sick and fail to get better? It seems cynical, but the point is everyday of your life counts, and everyone should focus on making their dreams a reality. I still want to send the same message to everyone with these lists, in hopes that people make the most out of every second of their life. All the while, opening their minds and ears to new or old styles of music. There is so much out there to find out about, and we can use it to optimize our lives. After all, music is the universal key to happiness. That being said, enjoy #105:
