So a little bit ago, I woke up around 5:30 and it was raining, not a lot, just a small shower. But the sound of the rain hitting the roof outside my window (which were wide open and thus getting my room wet) was pretty surreal, and BANG, mixtape.

I plan on making a second side to this. It will be darker and more depressing probably. Cause im like that :(
