Here’s A Genius Way To Organize Your Cluttered Spotify Playlists In 5 Minutes Or Less

I used to just have a few playlists on Spotify. And that was fine. I didn't care where I put new music, old music, and the occasional throwback track from high school.

But recently, I've discovered the power of an organized Spotify.

It's encouraged me to listen to music in a more thoughtful way, and keep a 'digital scrapbook' of sorts, where I can revisit parts of my life and the songs I was listening to. Think about if you could go back and listen to the songs you were obsessed with when you broke up with your first boyfriend, or went on a pivotal trip at a specific point in your life.

How cool would that be?

Read on for the easy way I keep my Spotify organized.

1. Make a monthly playlist.

At the beginning of each month, create a new playlist.

Title it the month and the year. Assign a cover photo that's your favorite photo you took in the month beforehand. In this case, my cover photo is from September 2019.

Throughout the month, this is the place you will put the songs you are listening to right now. It helps to separate between months because we naturally tire of songs quickly, and having a fresh palette makes for a more enjoyable listening experience.

Plus, in the future, you'll be able to look back and see what you were listening to at any given time.

2. Think about your moods, and make a playlist for each.

Are you looking to relax and be calm? Create an "easy listening" playlist. Are you feeling like you just need to remember who the f*ck you are? Create a "these define me" playlist. The possibilities are endless.

You can add to these at any time. Keep these playlists at the top of your Spotify playlist organizer, and put your monthly-s below.

3. Have an "I kinda like" playlist.

The best way to keep clutter out is to keep moving: aka, keep adding songs.

My favorite way to acquire new music is to have an "i kinda like" playlist. As you can see, it has songs. Why? It's is a place I can put songs I'm kinda vibing with, and I've had the playlist since February 2017.

Any time I need new music, I can go to this playlist and re-listen to the most recent songs (or the older ones). 9 times out of 10, I end up liking that song, and put it into a mood playlist or my current monthly.

And there you have it! That's how to organize your Spotify in 5 minutes or less.

We Are a Human Race, Not A Political Race

It is time to we stop spreading our culture of hate.

Hate is a word that has begun to describe this generation and the actions of people in the world. Hate has crept into public speeches, social media, hanging presidents/decapitated heads and our hearts. It has blinded how we see one another and tainted the words we use to talk to others. Political parties are turning into cat fights over who is right and frankly ruining any chance of unity in this country.

You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.
