this week has been all about old favourites for me. i'm in the middle of exam period, so the music that has been filling my days have been tunes that are easy-listeners, and ones that are effortless and relaxing - enough to keep my mind satisfied, but simple enough to blend into the background whilst i'm reading and studying things from land degradation to the cycling infrastructure surrounding the north east valley of dunedin (its as dry as it sounds, trust me!). sometimes it feels like my brain literally can not take in any more information, but after a quick hot drink break and a wee escape outside, i'm renewed and ready for yet another two hours stuck in the books.
the combination of coffee + fresh air have continuously been my saving grace.

what have you been listening to this week?
