14. Aruba, Jamaica, ooo I wanna take ya...

There's nothing like the perfect music to motivate you into getting out of bed--whether it's to go to work or to school.

A confession: I've always treasured my iTunes player, but for some reason I've never made playlists on it. So I tend to keep whole albums of music in my phone, eating up the memory, making me deal with songs that aren't necessarily my favourites. Having bought an iPod shuffle (second-hand) from an officemate, I thought that I should sort of synchronize the songs in my phone and iPod shuffle, which contains only a certain amount of memory.

The memory space-saving solution? Playlists. That way, I wouldn't have to deal with the problem I have stated in the previous paragraph. I've made two lists, which depended on the mood I am in. Since we are on the subject of pick-me-uppers, here's a list of songs that are included in my Feel Good Favorites playlist (I intend to make the same in Spotify one of these days).
