Playlist: I’m the Sh*t Pt. II

You already know you’re the shit. Like Gabby says, there are days when you “wake up on time, get your workout on, meet the most perfect person, say the most perfect things, problem solve all of the problems, make that money, land your art installation in a gallery, fund your web series, and find twenty bucks in a pair of jeans.” And on those days, you are the shit. But you know what? There are also days when your boss blames you for something you didn’t do, someone hits your car in the parking lot, your ex won’t stop texting you, your mom is passive-aggressive about your haircut, you have your period and a UTI at the same time, and your cat throws up on something. And even when it seems like everyone and everything in your life is conspiring to convince you that you ain’t shit, that is not true. Even when everything is terrible, you are still the shit. And this is the playlist for that.

PS I’m sorry for the Eminem. I hate Eminem. At least now you can say you listened to a mix that had both Eminem and Bikini Kill, though?

sarah connor is the shit.

    i love you for this and for your general awesomeness.

    also, we both included “Dirt off Your Shoulder” which means that at some point we need to rap to it together.

    it is the winner of the I’m the Shit song contest, amiright?
