Spooky Halloween Playlist

Spooky Halloween Playlist

I like making playlists for different occasions, holidays and events. So, it shouldn’t be too surprising that I would take the time to throw together a little Spooky Halloween playlist!

There’s a mix of punk, rock, psychobilly, old rock’n’roll, pop and dance music on here. I tried to space it out to keep the flow nice and smooth, so each genre transitioned well into the next.

These are just a few of my favourite spooky songs that make me think of Halloween. Consider adding some to your own Halloween playlist, or simply enjoy!

Summer Days Drifted Away

Summer Days Drifted Away

Summer vacation is over. We’re back in school now and preparing for fall. I guess it’s not all bad, because I love autumn and the upcoming holidays, but I’m so bummed that I spent the last month of summer completely depressed and didn’t do as much fun summery stuff as I had hoped to do from my summer bucket list.

But, it was still a fun summer, and I shouldn’t complain.

Our last big hoorah of the summer was our four-day camping trip with my mom and niece! Nick stayed home to work because he’s lame 😉

We went to Blue Water Lakes Campground which is my favourite place in the world! I try to go there at least once every year; twice if I’m lucky. The water is cold, but clean. The park is surrounded by nature, but maintained. There are rules in place, but they’re not strict. It’s the perfect place to camp.

Of course, the week we went it rained and stormed, and then the sun would come out just long enough to trick you into thinking it was there to stay. We’re fortunate that each night was warm with clear skies, so we could gaze at the stars and enjoy snacks over roaring campfires.

And then it was time to go back to school.

I usually love going to school and look forward to it each year. I love the cool weather, shopping for school supplies, and walking into those crowded hallways that promise new beginnings. But my lingering depression and this unbearably hot September have left me feeling anxious and annoyed. I’m still not in the school spirit and it’s been a month.

Summer doesn’t feel complete. It feels like it shouldn’t be over. Not yet, because there’s still so much I want to do. Maybe these feelings are because I spent so much of my summer working full-time and juggling freelance assignments on the side, or maybe it was my late summer depression. Either way, I’m not ready for fall, even though it’s already here.

And this hot weather has me feeling like I should be outside, on the beach, away from campus and homework and lectures. And readings. Ugh, all the readings!

So here’s a sad, sad goodbye to those summer days that drifted away, too soon and already forgotten.

And a few photos to remind me of these last couple weeks and the joy I experienced, despite my sadness.
