Monday Mix: Over It

This one's for all the girls who are over it.

When I first heard Taylor Swift's "Never Getting Back Together" I sort of freaked out. I know this probably makes me sound lame but it's pretty spot on with those feelings that creep up on you when you decide you're done with a relationship. You fall in love, you love, and then love (inevitably) fades or ends or implodes, and then your ex-whoever comes crawling back and you're like STOP DOING THIS TO ME, and yeah, it gets tiring. This, the tumultuousness of most relationships, is frustrating. 

My best friend is going through a break up and this mix is for her. Being broken up with is probably one of the worst things that has ever happened to me. I made this mix to empower my best friend but also to empower all girls who've been broken up with and who are 200% done caring.

This mix is different than my earlier compilation of songs for "Heartbreak". These songs are less sad and much more I-don't-give-a-fuck. They evoke that moment of eureka that happens when you realize HEY I'M AWESOME AND HE WAS ACTUALLY A REALLY LAME BOYFRIEND AND TONIGHT I'M GOING TO KISS SOMEONE WAY COOLER THAN HIM AND CONTINUE BEING AWESOME. It's stage two after the heartbreak – IMO, the best part.

Enjoy these eight songs by some of my favorite girls:
