When I was in seventh grade, I did my science fair project on the effect that music has on plants. I had to put on music for my plants and see which type of music made the plants grow the highest. My guess was that Hip Hop would be the most effective (oh Raylee… lol) and the country music would kill the plant (Obviously, because it sucks. Duh?). Anyways, I got impatient by like day two and ended up making up the results to fit my hypothesis. The best types of statistics are the ones that are made by me, right???? Anyways, I got a B I think? I guess my science teacher wasn’t a country fan either.

This summer I have really been getting down to the basics of who I am and what I like. I am trying new things: Yoga, herb gardening, new workout routines, heathy eating and making new recipes (stay tuned mwahahaha) and aromatherapy. So here is my current favorite playlist. I put this on when I paint and clean my room and sometimes when I cook and dance around in my pajamas. Add the songs and put them on shuffle and think about who you really are. Let the music inspire and ignite a fire to try something new. Save the songs you like to your music library and save the ideas you like to your mental camera roll. Breathe and let go.
