Merry christmas! here are your spotify wrapped graphics!!

I've been loving the blog formats on the mit admissions blog and I was inspired to make graphics comparing my friends' listening habits just like this post.

Let's go!

look at justin! 75k minutes listened. that's on avg 3.5 hours per day!

20k minutes is 1.5 hours a day! or 9% of waking hours.

I thought I would've listened more than my average time per day, but that's because some days I don't listen to music.

This is how much we listened to our favorite artist. It's a nice exponential looking graph.

I think the main way I've been finding new artists is from Discover Weekly and searching up keywords of my mood and context to find playlists.

Some people go broad and some people go deep. I want to branch out from soft sounding music and find new genres I like next year.

"You right next to me, feel the heat, goin' overdrive!"

(I got a feeling of deja vu from writing this post. feels like I've done this before with many many graphs and lines of words in between)

I think I've gone a long way at finding music I enjoy. In 2020, I didn't listen to music much because I didn't really know good songs. Then, I started noticing when I liked a song that was playing in public, and pull out the Shazam app on my phone to see what the song was and add it to my playlist.

I started making a playlist every three months, named after the season we were in, and add songs I liked in that playlist. Now I have a chronological record of music I enjoyed in different time periods in my life!

I think music made quite a difference to me this year. I have been having a hard time and it felt good to find a new song that I liked or replay a song in the right moment.

I think I still want to expand more music taste going into next year, and I think listening to playlists made by people that like different genres from me is a good start.

anyway, thanks for reading! I hope you all are enjoying the festive cozy feels!
