A Playlist to Get Your Sorry Self Out of Bed

I recently began my first grown-up job which, along with consistent headaches, also requires me to wake up every day a good three hours before I would consider acceptable. I’m not a morning person and I never have been. Rather, I spend the first five minutes of every day laying in bed wondering if it’s possible to sue my parents for forcing me to endure my existence. Just so you’re not too alarmed, my attitude always changes as the day progresses, but the thought of leaving my bed first thing in the morning is never welcomed. Dramatics aside, I have found the best motivator to leave my bed in order to make my coffee and hop in to the shower which comes in the form of music. With that being the case, I’ve developed this playlist to serve as the first bright spot of my day (because the sun’s not even up yet).
