10 Songs On My Journaling Playlist

Over the past few months, I have begun journaling every night before bed. I first read aloud the current goals I have set for myself, then write down one moment from the day that brought me happiness, and continue to reflect on the entire day and sometimes what life is like at that point in time.

Next, I read aloud things we all crave others to say to us but we should really be saying to ourselves such as "I want to build a loving relationship with you", "you are enough", etc. Finally, I switch to my five-year journal and answer that day's question. It has been a great way for me to connect with myself, strengthen my mental health, and develop a healthy sense of routine.

I, however, am basically incapable of functioning in a silent environment, so I ALWAYS turn on some good tunes to journal along to. Here are ten of my go-to's!

1. 'Turbulence' — Jonah Kagen

Jonah Kagen doesn't have a super-wide catalog but what he does have out there is brilliant and perfect for journaling!

2. 'Let Her Remember' — Peter McPoland

3. 'Lay It on Me' — Vance Joy

4. 'Strawberries' — CAAMP

Seriously, almost any CAAMP song is perfect for journaling or any other feel-good occasion.

5. 'November' — Max Richter

Max Richter is a great artist to turn to if you can't have singing in the background!

6. 'The Blower's Daughter' — Damien Rice

7. 'Woodland' — The Paper Kites

8. 'Somewhere in Ann Arbor' — Anson Seabra

9. 'Pick and Choose' — Daniel Nunnelee

This is a nice, peaceful, and happy piece to play in the background during times of reflection.

10. 'Anchor' — Novo Amor

Honestly, any of the artists above will have plenty of great selections for music to journal to, so if you really like one of them, I definitely recommend going down the rabbit hole!

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
