ode to a mental spring break (or at least to a playlist for march)

For most of us, spring break is a nostalgic term, stirring up images spent in hostels, motels, or of developing the solo-arm sunburn (from hanging it out the car window for a multi-hour-trek to whatever beach we could hit in under eight hours). Realistically, most of us don’t have spring break anymore, or if we do, it is spent playing catch-up on chores or continuing professional education, cooking dinners, schlepping [fill in the blank here: kids, siblings, pets, parents] around, and paying bills.

Modern Ink believes you deserve some type of break, and we are willing to call it a mental spring break, in fact it’s called “ode to a mental spring break (or at least to a playlist for march). The songs aren’t beachy, kitsch, or classic, but we hope they make you feel fresh and cooled-off…isn’t that what spring break was really about anyway? Enjoy.
