Baked goods: a September playlist

Even though I haven’t attended school in over six years, it’s still really hard to separate the nervous, excited anxiety of September. Back-to-school was my favourite but also the most stressful time of the year. Teachers, professors, friends, crushes, classes… it’s a lot, and I seem to keep that same energy every September, no matter what’s going on in my life.

It’s a super weird feeling, especially considering that September is really no different from any other month when you’re a grown ass human. So I’m going to channel those nervous, excited feelings into more positive ones, embrace the hell out of them, and turn it into a productive and fun month.

Here’s a little playlist to help you keep that same energy. It’s got some Kanye, some Drake, a St. Vincent track that I know is impossible not to air guitar to, and even one from Ariana Grande, someone I never knew I could be a fan of until she dropped sweetener. Consider me a convert.

1. Drake - “Nice For What”
2. St. Vincent - “Huey Newton”
3. Cousin Stizz - “Shop”
4. A$AP Rocky ft. Skepta - “Praise The Lord (Da Shine)”
5. Ariana Grande - “no tears left to cry”
6. Travis Scott - “STARGAZING”
7. Pusha T - “If You Know You Know”
8. JPEGMAFIA - “1539 N. Calvert”
9. KIDS SEE GHOSTS - “4th Dimension”
10. Kanye West - “I Wonder”
