I cry on airplanes. Every. Single. Time. Long or short, international or domestic, alone or with others, it doesn’t matter. You can bet I will be tearing up before we begin our descent. I don’t know why. Perhaps it’s because I am trapped in a metal tube barreling across the earth, or maybe because I’m removed from my daily reality. Some studies have proposed the altitude leads to a lack of oxygen (hypoxia) which can heightened emotions. Whatever it is, I know I’m not alone in this. On a recent flight to London, I noticed the man next to me tear up and then hide under his blanket!
So tell me, are you more vulnerable on airplanes? Do you stare out the window while listening to emo music? Or is that just me?

Hey there friends, how are you on this fine Tuesday? It is unseasonably warm here in California– I’m wearing a tank top and shorts in February! Sorry if you’re surrounded by snow while reading this…
Anyways, I have been discovering some amazing songs lately that I thought you might like to check out. Sometimes I get in ‘music ruts’ where I listen to the same five or ten songs over and over until I’m sick of them. So if you find yourself in the same situation, give these ten songs a listen and perhaps they will inspire you!
