Happy TunesDay: Collection 55

This week has kept me insanely busy, but that’s nothing really new.

Today, my friend, Lili, invited me onto her radio show, Where’s The Chase? It’s a fun talk show about dating and relationships–why she asked me on again…I have no idea.  But, it’ll be cool to chat about how I relate to friends in relationships and me being ready for a serious relationship (cue the shock & awe).  Her show is on KUCI 88.9FM for those in Orange County.  But, you can listen online here.  I’ll be on from 4-4:30PM PST!

And in other news…

Tomorrow, I am launching my podcast, Seats At The Table!! I am way super excited to finally be sharing this with everyone.  But, in preparation for the launch, I decided to have an impromptu launch party at the behest of my friend, Meymuna.  So, I’ve been frantically cleaning my apartment and rearranging furniture, because of course that’s a great idea the day before you’re hosting people at your apartment.

It’s become an intensive spring cleaning of sorts, but it feels good to dust and physically clean the clutter out of my life.

I’ve lived in this place for about two years, and I’m just finally getting around to making it home-y for myself…three months before I’m leaving California.  I have the worst timing, but better late than never, right?

Anyway, I hope that you can tune in tomorrow to Seats At The Table.  It’ll be available on Soundcloud and I’ll launch on iTunes in the next couple of weeks after I have more sessions uploaded.

And now, to the music, which is probably why you came here in the first place.

This week’s playlist is a soothing mix that lowers my heart rate, because to be honest, my mind is moving so quickly and I need to take some time for myself to be present and focused.

What are some songs that help you relax?

Sending you all peace and inner calm,
Christina

Happy TunesDay: Collection 50

Happy TunesDay, friends.

I genuinely hope your Tuesday has gotten off on a more productive note than mine.

In typical Christina fashion, I’m attempting to do four tasks at once and being unsuccessful at finishing any one of them in a timely manner, including this very blog post.

I need to remember to take a breath and try to tackle things one at a time–much easier said than done for someone like me whose mind moves many miles a minute (that was a tongue twister, wasn’t it?).

How do you keep focus? I’m willing to try whatever tips y’all have!

In the meantime, I’ll be listening to this week’s playlist and trying to drown out all the extra noise in my head.

wishing you focus & clarity,
Christina

Happy TunesDay: Collection 36

For most, Labor Day weekend means an extra day off of our normal work week. But something about a jam-packed weekend also means a required wind-down session.

These tunes are some of my late-night go-to’s after long drives, intense heat, sore feet, and much needed rejuvenation.

Even though you’re (begrudgingly) back at your routine, let the recent memories of your fun-filled weekend fuel you until the next federally-mandated holiday…or until the US realizes that our work week is far. too. long.
