Playlist & Artwork by Riya Mahesh

Fridays are definitely my favorite day of the week and I'm sure that's the case for many people. You have the whole weekend ahead of you, and maybe you've made plans to be with your friends. Fridays are special. I miss the things that made Friday the best day of the week: sunset drives, getting ready to go out, concerts, dinner with friends, and ignoring my homework. In quarantine, Friday feels like every other day, so I made this playlist to make the best day of the week feel like the best day of the week again. The first song is "Friday I'm In Love" by The Cure which has been my go-to mood booster for a long time. I also included Beach Bunny, Maggie Rogers, HAIM, and some other artists that make me feel happy and bring back good memories.
