Top 10 Tracks of 2015

It was a pretty intense year filled with a lot of transition and change. Undoubtably, the transition and change had a major impact on the music that I listened to and the artists that I discovered, versus years prior.

The creation of the list started with the most played tracks of 2015. From there, the evaluation criteria focused on tracks with a significant memory and emotion, tracks that I couldn’t stop listening to and tracks that helped define me and the last year of my life. It is important to note that some of these tracks were not released in 2015, but that doesn’t matter to me. It’s a personal list and a list that reflects the life, emotion and events of 2015.

Here we go!

My Top 10 Instagram Photos of 2014

I’m sure we have all seen the “year in review” lists on every site. Now, I know that the year is technically not over, but I wanted to compile a list of my top Instagram photos to date. This top ten list of Instagram photos is based on likes only, not any other type of engagement.

So here we go, my Top 10 Instagram shots of 2014.
