listen while you work

Updated: Apr 22



Hey guys!


Creative work can be so exciting, creatively stimulating, and engaging - but other times, it can also just get kinda lonely. I love being around the conversation and ~general energy~ of other people! So working in a coffee shop, library, or having podcasts/youtube videos on in the background are perfect options for me.


Whether you're looking for music, soulful self care talk, true crime, or pure sugary pop culture entertainment, I got you covered. ;) Here's what I love to listen to while I work!
