Well well well, leave it to Emily Choo to make lists profound.
Et tu me manques.

Your walking songs are the same as mine, except I also like to choose them rhythmically to coordinate with my walking speed so my lists are more based on walking speed (and also feelings).

I love lists! and 3 of your 5 getting ready for school songs are on my going to bed playlist! which probably explains why I have trouble falling asleep.

alessia: i have many feelings, i can make anything profound. i miss you too!

lucia: omg i love doing that. it feels so good to walk to a beat.

heidi: haha wow, they're my pump up, get ready to face the day songs. yeah, no wonder you can't sleep!
