This mix totally appears random at first glance, but there is a thread connecting all of it, I promise.

I just turned thirty, and this mix is an explanation of why I've been such a headcase the last few weeks. I've been struggling with the birthday milestone with horribly cliche sadness, and wrestling with coming to terms with my love life (in a good way), and that's why this mix is a bit of a rollercoaster between love songs and sad songs.

A quicker explanation: I am in love, falling in love, scared to death, feeling old, flailing around, falling into his arms.


(Mix title from Moving Pictures Silent Films by Great Lake Swimmers. Which is a song about hibernation, really, which is so perfect.)
