My musical sanity

There's a mix on my iPOD that I listen to specifically on my commute back from my night classes at Sac State, which can be pretty intense. I need music to "debrief" to while I ponder what I just experienced, learned, etc. and I've found that these albums help me to slow down and find some sanity amidst the frantic pace of life I tend to have right now.

The Outsiders- Needtobreathe (appropriate band name for how I sometimes feel)

The Glass Passenger- Jack's Mannequin (my love for Andrew McMahon's musical talent was revived when I saw him in concert last month....his music and lyrics resonate with me)

Better Days- Robbie Seay Band (a calming album that puts things in perspective)

Everybody- Ingrid Michaelson (many songs on this album are uplifting after a long day)

Time Without Consequence- Alexi Murdoch (perfect night driving soundtrack)

Nothing is Sound- Switchfoot (haven't listened to this album in several years but have rediscovered that many of the songs speak directly to the issues discussed in my counseling classes)
