My third playlist is not completed as of this writing. As with my previous two collections, it includes a variety of similar styles and themes, but I was aiming for relatively more up-beat, faster tempo songs here. As is usually the case, I believe I probably did not accomplish this goal.

God Bless Seductress in a lot of ways is the sequel to my first playlist, As It Happens.

Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy yourself! I thought it might be beneficial to use my first post to outline some of what I want to accomplish with this website.

First and fore most important, I’d like to use this blog to document my life. I am a few months away from receiving my bachelors of science, and I am honestly a little worried that before too long, these memories will become faint and unimposing, much like how I regard my time in high school today. But it is in large part through these experiences that have shaped who I am today, and it is a great shame that I do not possess the compass that got me here.
