Happy Holidays my young masters. Every week there’s a new reason to be excited with a new playlist of the hottest, newest, and underrated tracks that have surfaced during the week for your pleasure. As you jam along to the new tunes, if you’re a little more interested in my own (boring) life, then there’s a short story included that covers virtually any topic that reflects what I’m feeling at the time. These could be memories, experiences, feelings, and etc. This is my weekly recap in a nutshell.
1 week. 1 story. 7 days. 7 songs. This is,

Topic: Home for the Holidays
Before I start… does anyone remember “Home For The Holidays“ by J.Cole? If you don’t, check below. Such a fitting song for this occasion.
So many things I could talk about. Today is Christmas Day and it’s a white one here in Calgary. A lot of people are doing the right thing today by spending time with their most loved ones and enjoying a home-cooked meal that’s for sure to leave you stuffed for Boxing Day shopping the next day. Seeing that today (at the time) is a special day for joy and celebration, I thought I would explain to you guys what Christmas means to me and why I think it’s important to me.
Christmas is all about giving. My family doesn’t celebrate Christmas, but there’s more to giving than just presents. I’m trying to give as much love, attention, laughter, and compassion to all my friends and family during the holiday season. I don’t think there is anything more heart-warming to do during the cold winter than to stay warm with your loved ones.
I would say I have a pretty good knack for bringing people together. It’s been four months since a lot my friends have hung out let alone see each other. But now that we have the time, it’s been nothing but good vibes. I might have mentioned this before in a past post, but what I always find intriguing is how nothing seems to change when you don’t see someone for a long time. What I mean by this is how you could like leave to some different planet for years and come back and have the most low-key-down-to-earth normal conversation with your mom or your best friend. This symbiotic relationship that you have with someone of that caliber is so powerful and makes me glad that I can always come back to the same party no matter what happens.
