The theme for March’s running playlist is inspired by Lent. This year, I chose to give up monetary wastefulness: instead of buying a grande at Starbucks, I bring a cup of coffee to work. Instead of buying that cute new dress, I’ll refresh something already in my closet. No going out to eat unless I really don’t have time to cook. Etc. Etc.
It’s my way of acknowledging that, while I feel poor a lot of the time thanks to how expensive San Francisco is, I do have much more than other people. I need recognize that and stop taking it for granted.
So the theme for March is Making Old New. Every song on this playlist is a cover, and I love them.
