The Blue Jays are out, new music is in. To cure the pain that us bandwagoners are experiencing due to the recent elimination of Canada’s lone team, I have specially curated a special treatment for you. With some careful examination, I have formulated the best possible aid that includes just over 23 minutes of the most attentive tracks on my Soundcloud feed for the past 7 days.
For those tuning in for the first time, every week there will be a new playlist containing the hottest, newest, most underrated tracks that have surfaced during the week. Along with a new weekly playlist, if you want to dive a little more deeper into my life, I’ve included a short story that basically could be about anything that sums up my week. Experiences, memories, feelings, etc. This is my weekly recap in a nutshell.
1 week. 1 story. 7 days. 7 songs. This is,
Ray to Riches: Volume 3

Topic: Tell Your Friends
It’s early Sunday afternoon (12:35pm) and I’m laying on my couch. I have Spotify playing off my phone; The Weeknd to be exact as I prepare myself for the excitement of November 30th when I get to see him live for the first time. It’s been an interesting weekend. What I thought was going to be any other that included the mundane routine of cleaning and cooking, I found myself doing none of those (still got half a day though…).
Luckily, I was saved from all that nonsense when I got word on Friday that two of my closest friends were coming up to Edmonton. The shitty part was that they dragged my roommate and I to an all-day training session on Saturday at the University campus (literally 9 to 5) for the majority of their trip. As of 9:26am this morning they left my place and are probably back in Calgary. It’s crazy to think how in a quick turn of events I went from feeling like I was back home enjoying the time with my friends to an environment that still seems unfamiliar to me.
Even though it seemed like such a short time, what I take away from this weekend is the value of friendship. I knew we wouldn’t have a lot of quality time together, but it’s not like we went out to do something special. We still ate at a cheap restaurant. We still played the same board games. And we still had conversations to catch up on each others lives’ like we would do any other weekend. I guess that’s the worth of friendships. To be able to carry out long lasting relationships whether you put 100% effort into it, or absolutely zero. As long as you’re enjoying yourself, and enjoying the time you spend with the ones who matter the most in your life I guess that’s all there really is to it.
