  1. this playlist makes you really old.

  2. Old?! What do you mean? This isn ’t the only music I have…but the Deftones make reading a little difficult

  3. I really like your playlist :) I also listen to classical music during working, because it helps me focus on what I'm doing! but usually I just accidently set a classical radio station on my iTunes, so the music never the same.

  4. Ah good, I’m not alone then. (yay). I hate it when a good tune is played on the radio and they don’t say what it was.

  5. Excellent taste!

  6. :) See Martha? Not old, excellent lol
