Current Music Obsession: 25 by Adele, and My Reflection on 2015

music obsession 25 Adele

Hey everyone!

** This post has ben re-uploaded due to technical difficulties **

Huge apologies for being absent the past several days! I was spending time with family and friends for the holidays. Christmas for me is typically spent at my aunt's house in Canada. Because of that, my parents, my sister, and I would stay at my grandmother's house, which is nearby, for a week or so for the holidays. My grandmother's house doesn't have any Wifi, making it difficult for me to have access to the outside world during my stay. I don't have phone service in Canada either because I'm not about to pay extra, as my phone plan doesn't extend internationally. I'd rather save my money for more important things, like Adele concert tickets (which by the way are SOOO EXPENSIVE!!), and mooch off Wifi from the nearest Tim Horton's instead.

How did you spend the holidays?

Speaking of.. (that segue there though) I wanted to end the year off by writing about my newest music obsession. 25 by Adele. The "one and only" Adele. See what I did there? Yeah, all you Adele fans get me. I've been obsessed with Adele since forever. My favorite thing to do isn't to Netflix and Chill. No. I like to Adele and Cry. And Adele and Eat. And Adele and Sleep. And Adele and Try-To-Study-But-Not-Really. And Adele and *Insert any and every activity ever*. Because that's how obsessed I am with her music.

Prior to November 20th, the release of her newest album, I prepped myself by listening to all her past albums and singles on repeat. Continuously. Nonstop. Day and night, and night and day. When the long-awaited day finally came, I was without a doubt, FREAKING OUT!! I was so excited, it was all I could talk about.

I literally kept annoying everyone by telling people how I've been waiting 3 years for her to release new music, and how pissed I was that 25 wasn't on Spotify. I desperately wanted the album, and was planning on purchasing it as soon as possible. However, a surprise was waiting for me back home. My parents had gone and purchased me the album as part of an early Christmas present. That made my day. Ever since, that album has been playing on loop all holiday season long. Other than the holiday music playing on the radio in my car and at work, Adele's been the soundtrack of my life for the past couple months. While Elle King's Love Stuff marked my summer, it's been an Adele winter for me.

Seriously guys, if you haven't listened yet, DO IT NOW! She's absolutely amazing. The long wait was worth it in my opinion. I'm pretty sure a lot of you have listened to "Hello" by now, as that single was what spurred that whole Adele-craze that happened because of her finally releasing a new album. There's no better feeling than to wake up with your new favorite song stuck in your head, and staying that way for the entire day. It actually kept a smile plastered on my face all day long, I bet I looked like a freak.


Whilst going about my Adele craze, I stumbled upon a video where Ellen takes "Hello" and creates a hilarious sketch with it. Check it out! I just had to share something as amusing and entertaining as this with you guys.

My current favorites from 25 are as follows in no particular order:

When We Were Young
Water Under the Bridge
Million Years Ago
All I Ask

They are all so amazing. Those are just a few of my favorites, but I do love them all. These are the songs that sends tingles down my spine, and waves of emotions over me. Her voice is so powerful and conveys such great, deep emotion. The whole album just really speak to me, and I can't stop listening.

Which ones do you guys like from this album?

Adele's music is what got me through some rough years of high school. As I rode the roller-coaster of life, Adele's music was the soundtrack playing alongside. Each and every song holds great meaning to me. You know when you listen to a certain song enough during an eventful time that when you listen to it later on, it conjures up memories of that moment? That's basically how it is for me.

Thus, why I chose to end the year off rambling about my love for Adele's music and her newest album. Music has the ability to hold such significant, yet different meaning to each person. It is so personal and universal at the same time. Something that we can use to break the ice. Something to fight over, or bond over. Similarly, 2015 means something different to each and every person. We all experienced unique things that changed us, for better or for worse. 2015 holds its own special significance that can't be changed, and things will forever be marked as "2015".

2015 has been a wonderful year for me. There were its share of ups and downs, but looking back overall, I am thankful for everything that has happened. I've made new friends, and reconnected with old ones. I started my first job. I finished my first year of university with wonderful grades. I was able to further improve and expand my skills in sewing. Most importantly, I found the motivation and inspiration to blog again. Life has its way of running its course; despite the fear, stress, happiness, depression we all undergo, in the end I believe that things happen for a reason. We make things happen for a reason.

I really hope you guys had a wonderful holidays, and I wish you all a happy new year. Let's make 2016 just as, if not more memorable. Check out the fashion resolutions I posted awhile ago, where I discuss some other desires I have for the coming year.

Lemme know in the comments below, what you think of Adele's new album! Share something memorable that happened in 2015! 

Here's to the new year, the new and improved us!


Til next time,
~A

    I love all her songs and she is one of the only albums I would buy (there just a handful of artists I like enough to listen to them over and over :)
    I remember listening to her interview years ago when she was talking about chasing pavements.

    Hope you have a happy NYE :)

    1. Agreed! There are so many artist out there where I don't bother buying their albums, but instead listen on spotify or youtube. But I find that Adele's music is always worth it to purchase because it's something I know for sure I would listen over and over.
      Her interviews are so fun and entertaining to watch. I don't remember that one though, I'll have to search it up.
      Hope you have a wonderful new years :)

  23. Ok... Don't hate me please but... I think I must be the only person in the world who isn't crazy about 'Hello'. I LOVE Adele - her music, her personality, her voice is heavenly! I haven't listened to new new album in full yet, it's on my to-do list for this weekend. But I have heard Hello soooo many times by now, and whilst yes, it is a great song, yes, she has the most beautiful voice ever, I just don't think it's THAT great... Deffo not her best song... Ok you can hate me now. :P

      glad to hear you love Adele! I do agree that "Hello" isn't her best song, compared to the rest of her new stuff. Pleaseeee listen to the rest of the album! I want to hear what you think of it!

    1. I know, right? I kept trying to buy a ticket, but every time the page tried to refresh, it took 10 min and they were sold out so fast! I'm so mad. I really want to see her perform live. That would be such a cool experience. Hopefully there will be other opportunities soon!

      I agree, there aren't too many albums out there that I like in full. It's really exciting for me to be able to hit shuffle and not feel the urge to hit skip when a song comes up.
