ELECTRO ESPRESSO MIXTAPE by Cheekie Albay
Today, you have a ton to do.
Your apartment is an unbelievable mess. You haven’t gotten around to cleaning it since that new project at work had you working nights all week.
Last month’s laundry is still sitting in a sad heap in the corner of your bedroom. I’m not going to walk myself to the laundry shop, it seems to be saying.
You promised yourself you’d go to the gym this week. Whatever happened to that?
Even your boyfriend is complaining that he never sees you anymore. I don’t even have time to look at myself in the mirror, much less see anyone else, you tell him jokingly. (He scowls. You’ll deal with that later.)
And now you’re up early. On a weekend. ‘Cause there’s this thing you have to go to. There’s always a thing you have to go to.
Doesn’t matter. You make yourself some coffee, turn up the volume on your girl-vocal electro playlist, slip on that blue shirt you think makes you look ten pounds thinner, and get ready to hustle.
Made this mixtape for my sister Crisha, who needs a dose of this on cruel mornings when she has to drag herself out of bed extra early.
