Is this playlist safe for work?


I forget where she wrote it, but Virginia Woolf once wrote that as soon as one attempts to point at the soul, it has already fled, like a shadow in the face of a flashlight.

ok where was i, rocket ship: that does sound like a cool thesis, how do you even go about starting to translate an ancient latin poem. Do you think someone, eons from now, will write a thesis based off translating some random book report you wrote? I'd be flattered. I'll unblock you on snapchat, I hope it doesn't spook you. You'll probably come right here as soon as you see that. "Wa- is that- does that mean he- oh nooooo". I actually do still think about you pretty often. Just little things like "How's Rob doing?" "Does he still hate me?" " Rob would've found this funny", it's weird how habitual thoughts like that don't go away. Obviously I took the time to get to the end of the mix. I was real excited when I saw you posted something new. I wish 8tracks didn't go down the drain as a music sharing platform. I'm concerned for you now though. You must be going out of your mind staying in all day reading ancient literature. I hope you're doing alright during finals week right now too. Unless your finals are already over, I dunno. I still have genetics aND evolution Monday. Then I can come home Tuesday. Sorta feels like everything's falling apart, I still don't know what I want to do after college, that's sort of concerning. Please don't kill yourself, though. I've always felt that you have an important contribution to make to the world. You're someone who's passionate about learning in a way that, to this day, I still haven't seen in another person. And you've always been unique and outstanding as a person. I wish you weren't plagued with depression and loneliness, I feel like if you were unhindered, you're the type of person who could accomplish virtually anything.

Hey, I happened to stumble upon this a few months late but I'm pretty excited about it. I'm gonna respond to the annotations one by one in real time. It sounds like you were, or maybe still are, in a real shitty place, I'm sorry about that. The Front Bottoms still remind me of you real well. I actually just saw McCafferty live in Philly like, last week! Chris kept talking before songs and making dumb jokes so I yelled the "I SWEAR TO FUCKING GOD CHRIS" thing at him and he was like "whatever, man" and I really embarrassed the person I was with but it was awesome. Reminded me of how loud and boisterous I'd act around you while you'd roll your eyes but also laugh. I really tried to keep up with Spanish a few more times but it never stuck. I even tried getting my mom to only speak in Spanish around me, and I tried keeping a notebook like you would and listening to Spanish songs but it just didn't work. I think my brain's just not as language-oriented as yours. I'm picking up a lotta ironic japanese phrases lately though. Have you watched My Hero Academia? It's sO GOod. Yes, I can hear your voice while I read these, I still have real distinct memories of what you sound with and speech mannerisms and such. I'm not really sure what substantial part you had in the falling out, I thought it was virtually all me. I don't know why you're beating yourself up. I was an asshole with a lot of insecurities, little social experience, and a lot of immature, selfish habits. I still remember when you told me something like "You know those buzzfeed-esque quizzes that tell you if your friends with someone toxic? You match like, all of the criteria," and I was like "lol what, that's ridiculous." But it was probably spot on actually, I was never not terrible. I've been a lot more critical of myself since we stopped talking. I actually maintained two long term relationships and had some pretty healthy friend groups where I didn't force myself to always be the center of attention. Dude, your mixes were equally fire and don't even try to deny it. You just liked softer songs most of the time, I thought our tastes complemented each other nicely. Also I don't understand this whole annotation. I vageuly remember comparing you to Jesus? I probably literally meant that you look a little bit like him in my head. Did you actually study abroad in Spain? I hope your abroad experience was at least a good time before you got home. I went abroad to Australia and it was balls to the wall terrible. It actually fucked me up pretty badly, I'd never experienced the such extreme isolation and difficulty making friends before. It made me a lot more thankful for people I have. I'm really good friends with Devin Moran and Anabelle now actually, they really helped me out while I was overseas. I don't feel like a part of my history's broken off though. I got real into Kurt Vonnegut and his Slaughterhouse Five time ideas, how everything's just sort of happening at once. Thinking about time and memories like that is really comforting for me because it feels like we never really lose anything, it'll always exist y'know? Again, I don't really know why you think I would ever talk bad about you. I still consider you a
