Happy Tunes and Soothing Melodies

Happy Saturday everyone! Occasionally, I get messages asking me to share what songs I’m listening to on my instagram stories. So, I’ve finally put together a couple of playlists.

I am by no means knowledgeable in music, nor do I believe I have a particularly refined taste in music. I just like what I like and, if your music taste converges with mine, you might enjoy either one of my playlists.


The first is Saturday Sun. A purposefully obnoxious degree of happiness is infused into this playlist to get your day started on the right foot. This one is about hacking your mindset first thing in the morning and making yourself believe you are on vacation by the coast, having the time of your life. Because, honestly, we should be having the time of our lives every single day. Happy vibes all round with this one.

On the other hand, Promise Me This is quite the opposite. This one is a low-key playlist with soft, soothing, and even melancholy tunes to light some incense to, unwind and end your day. Some of my personal favorites from this playlist are all Ben Howard and Novo Amor songs – also anything by Bon Iver (even though I hesitated to include him in this playlist because his songs take me from relaxed to emotional – but I just love him).

I hope you enjoy these playlists!




Hello World: My Little Zen Corner

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Well it seems I have finally taken the plunge. A very few may already know me from Instagram. If so, thank you so much for coming along this new journey.

Otherwise, let me quickly introduce myself. I’m Anto, I am a latina beginner programmer, yogi, and aspiring software engineer. The beach, candles and hugs are a few of my favorite things🌿

I blog on Instagram about:

  • my journey into teaching myself programming
  • studying to complete an Associates Degree
  • applying to a Computer Science Bachelors program next year
  • trying to maintain a yoga practice
  • manifesting and practicing gratitude
  • leading a balanced life highlighted by purpose and drive

I also share a lot of what I’ve been recently learning in my pursuit to reach my optimal performance while avoiding burnout, as well as practical advice on how to optimize your day, discover what your passion IS, and establish achievable goals. and we cannot forget: tons of book recommendations!

I’ve decided to create this blog in order to organize what I’ve already shared and create even more content that inspires you and pushes you to achieve greatness – whatever that may look like to you.

I hope you will join me and take away something that will help you on your own journey.
