{music moment} Heat Wave Jams

Heat wave: (noun) a prolonged period of abnormally hot weather.

If it gets to 94 degrees for three consecutive days, it's considered a heat wave in New York City. 

People freak out! Literally, calling into work, stocking up on bottles of water and AC units. 

It's like snow in the south. They think the world is ending. Jokes on them (for now).

In Arkansas, you pray for summer days that only hit 94 degrees instead of 110. I've learned to just deal with it, because it is going to be hot, every summer, until the world does actually end. 

So people, stop freaking out. You have obviously been alive more than one year, you know what to expect. Instead of complaining about it just make the most of it. 

Here are things you can do to avoid the heat wave misery:

1. Don't go outside. Simple. 

2. Pool, lake, ocean, bathtub, beer. Find cold water and jump in! 

3. Inside activities. Believe it or not there are tons of things to do inside and most are educational. Museums, libraries, movies, dyi's on pinterest.

4. Shopping. Unless you live in the city, most malls have AC, and who doesn't like shopping. 

5. My personal favorite, INTERNET. Get on YouTube and just type random things in the search bar. I guarantee you will be entertained for hours. 

Today, in NYC its hot and humid! I am not motivated enough to run in this heat, mainly because I suck at running and there is a high possibility I will pass out. And my only other idea is to shop. Dangerous. So after watching an embarrassing amount of YouTube videos, I decided to make a playlist to pass the heat. 

Here is a list of the songs that are featured on the playlist:

 1. Carmen by Lana Del Rey
2. Deadbeat Summer by Neon Indian
3. Dressed in Dresden by The Hundred in the Hands
4. Fell in Love with a Girl by White Stripes
5. Fineshrine by Purity Ring
6. Golden Light by Twin Shadows
7. Hold On by Alabama Shakes
8. Little Secrets by Passion Pit
9. Need Your Love by The Temper Trap
10.Patient by Twin Shadows
11. Shake Me Down by Cage the Elephant
12. Sleep Alone by Two Door Cinema Club
13. Steve McQueen by M83
14. The Wave by Miike Snow
