This is officially one of the most exhausted I've ever been. Between busy season at work, applying/interviewing for a new job, and moving eight miles away to a completely different neighborhood in Chicago, this week has been brutal. Personally, when I'm this tired I love electronic music. A nice mix of dance tracks, soothing beats and abstract textures helps keep my brain working, without the need for 5 Hour Energy, which, I assure you, is terrible on the body regardless of what their creepy commercials say. Electronic music's lack of lyrics helps prevent my mind from wandering, and the repetitive nature of electronic music helps put me in a zone. This isn't to say that it's a great zone to be in, but it keeps me awake nonetheless.
Because I know I'm not the only outrageously exhausted person -- you should see our leader, I'm not sure I've ever seen a well rested Justin Sinkovich -- I'm hoping this mix finds you, Mr. or Mrs. Exhausted, very well. It should keep you awake enough to do some work, but relaxed enough to still be able to pass out the second you hit the bed.
