I had a really bad day yesterday. I wasn’t feeling well, someone stole my lunch,
Lala tried to steal Cheekz from me and one of my account executives kept coming to my desk rather than using the many non-verbal methods of communication that are available to him should he wish to contact me. My post went up late and I didn’t have a bagel for breakfast. Plus PMS has turned me into a raging bitch. By about 3:30pm I was ready to explode.
When I get like this – which by the way is not often – there is really only one thing to do: put on my headphones and listen to Drink Away the Pain on repeat. As soon as I hear “I used to be in love with this bitch named E&J” I can feel the irritation starting to drain away. By the time I get to “Guess took the jigga, and jigged her in the gut”. I no longer feel like taking a jigga and jigging someone myself.
It’s no secret to anyone who knows me even a little that I love Mobb Deep. This is my go-to group any time I need a little pick me up or calm me down. Every life experience is a little better if Havoc + Prodigy are whispering sweet nothings to me in the background.
I listen to this in the morning to get me ready for my day:
If I feel like life is getting the better of me I listen to this:
The rare times in life that I actually work out I listen to this while doing cardio. It’s the only thing that stops me from wanting to juk out my own eye in boredom.
After a particularly exhausting phone call with my mum I usually put this on:
And now that this has been restored to my library (it somehow went missing and I couldn’t find it on itunes) this is the soundtrack of my workday:
And of course when I’m ready to shank someone, since I cannot literally drink the pain away I have this:
The poetical prophets have saved me from myself more times than I can count. If you don’t have any Mobb Deep in your life
get off my blog get caught up.
What about you guys? Do you use music to lift your spirits? Do you have a go-to artist to stop you from cutting
