The "Midterms Are Coming" Playlist

As I look at my calendar I notice that midterms are coming, and that means there are projects and tests galore. And as someone who loves to listen to a good tune while strapped down with my laptop and class notes, I figured it was time I put together a playlist for midterm studying. And who better to share it with than you guys?

Everyday Enthusiasm Day 7: Musing Mondays

Musing Mondays

Welcome to week 2 of Everday Enthusiasm! In honour of the concert I’m attending on Thursday, I thought I would take a trip on memory lane to last summer when I saw Bruno Mars in Portland. Let’s begin our journey, shall we?

Morgan and the Amazing Bruno Mars Concert

Last summer I was the lucky winner of two tickets from Global Citizen to see Bruno Mars in Portland for his Moonshine Jungle tour.  It was the coolest (and pretty much only) thing I’ve ever won and, not gonna lie, Bruno Mars totally rocked that show.

I am the most awkward person when taking pictures in public.

Artists I Know You’ll Love

Let’s talk about music. We all have different tastes. Only the other day I posted in the Facebook group for my freshman class what kind of music everyone likes and no two people had the same answers. We are all attracted to different genres and voices and lyrics. And so I thought today I’d share with you some music that I love that I think you might like too.

I Listen to a Lot of British Artists: A Musical Compositon


If you don’t love Adele, I don’t want to breathe the same air as you. She has more soul than I thought was possible and her music is beautiful.

Andy Grammar

This man just makes the best music. My friend Kelsi and I will play his station on Slacker whenever we go on long drives. Andy makes catchy music that has a great message.

The Beatles

Need I say anything? It’s the Beatles.

My Road Trip Playlist

This month is my big month of travel. Last week I went to Eugene for freshman orientation, this week I go to the coast with my best friend Katy, and the week after that I go to Portland for a  Bruno Mars concert! So, all in all, I’m going to be on the road a lot this month. And car rides are so boring without appropriate music, so I have my own Road Trip Playlist on my phone that provides several hours of fantastic car music. And I thought I’d share it with you.

Accidentally in Love – Counting Crows

All About You – McFly

Animal – Neon Trees

Anything Could Happen – Ellie Goulding

Army of Two – Olly Murs

My Favorite Music Videos #2

Here is part two of my favorite music videos! If you haven’t seen PART ONE CLICK HERE. These videos are humorous, serious, and overall ones that I really enjoy.


The treadmill video! Fun fact, my mum used to babysit the guy in the pink shirt!


Kind of serious, but I love the mannequins! Sorry for the awful quality. This video was impossible to find!


The hamster balls, the crazy driving, no parent supervision. It’s every parent’s nightmare.


It just looks so cool!
