Music: The Ultimate Introvert Playlist

Butterflies, it looks like my recent weekend trip to Dallas will be my last adventure for awhile since COVID-19 is shutting everything down and strict social distancing guidelines are now in place, forcing everyone into self-isolation. While this time of quarantine may be a completely different experience for everyone, I recommend celebrating alone time and embracing this time of semi-introvertism as a time for self-discovery. 

Ironically, it’s National Optimism Month and this week is National Introverts Week so cheer up music lovers and check out this multi-decade chronological list of some of the best songs of all time about embracing alone time below...
