Synesthesia Playlists: YELLOW

Playlist 3 of 10.


As someone who works a desk job collecting data for the company and spends a large amount of time in the car each week, music, podcasts, and audiobooks have quickly become one of my best companions.

But music and other auditory mediums have always had a different feeling to me, representing more than just "background noise". In recent years, I've come to the conclusion that it may be a form of synesthesia.

Synesthesia can be defined as the production of a sense impression relating to one sense or part of the body by stimulation of another sense or part of the body.

According to Color Psychology, yellow means joy, radiance, warmth, inspiration, enlightenment, cheerfulness and optimism.

YELLOW is playlist three, and the longest, of ten. Below is a playlist of songs that feel incredibly yellow.

For optimum quality, please listen through headphones and in the order it is presented.

Telling me I wasn't made for the simple life
There's a light I see, but it's far in the distance
So I'm asking you to show me some forgiveness
It's all for you in my pursuit of happiness"

To be joyful, joyful
Joyful and happy, sunny and bright"

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
