    More Reader Participation
    As a follow up to my last post, I have found a few things that are keeping me elevated. Finding a job to apply to that I'm not only qualified for but that excites me. Cleaning my apartment and reorganizing my life (though after two weeks, there's very little left to do to be honest). My walks in Prospect Park.

    But I think one of the best mood elevators I've found thus far has been music. I've always been one of those people who, when sad, turns to Tori. When pissed, turns to Alanis. Anything that I can belt out in the privacy of my own apartment. There's something cathartic about it. The pent up saddness or aggression leaves my body on the air leaving my lungs.

    These days, I'm finding that cheesy, upbeat, my-god-I-can't-believe-she-even-listens-to-that-shit, songs are keeping me sane. The current playlist is below. Now here's where you come in ... what else should be added? And please, no mocking the list. I know it's crap, but damnit, I like it!

      Kim,

      I am usually pretty good at predictions and so take this and run with it. We will be celebrating something come Winter Summit and it aint going to be the 14th day running of Groundhogs Day!!

      I read through your list and I will admit that I listened to many of those songs during my 5 months of unemployment.

      Best of Luck

      Hey my wife constantly makes fun of me for my music, what No Blind Melon, no Van Halen, no Matthew Sweet, no Hootie.

      Cheesy as it is, Since You've Been Gone and Because of You - Kelly Clarkson. And you know I always listen to Billy Joel and Josh Groban.

      It WILL get better.

      "walking in memphis" = upbeat? that one seems to embody melancholy, for me at least.

      rilo kiley's "with arms outstretched" - if you don't have it, get it, stat. ditto for "o-o-h child" by the five stairsteps.

      come to think of it, get all the rilo kiley you can get your hands on. both albums: "more adventurous" and "the execution of all things." pay full price if you must - they are SO worth it.

      hang in, woman, you'll get it figured out.

      I never knew that Ben Lee sang Catch My Disease, I'd been wondering for ages but always forgot to look it up!
