Though some have probably embraced the slowed-down situation of the pandemic, for me it’s been quite the opposite. As an ambivert, being secluded for a long period of time has caused quite an imbalance in my life and propelled me on a constant search for that chaotic intensity socializing brings. Luckily these particular songs played loudly on constant repeat have brought back order to my days (and mostly nights). This playlist is a mix of anarchic-sounding arrangements, assertive beats, and aggressive lyrics; the perfect combination of chaos to accompany me in solitude.
Amira Waworuntu is a full-time writer, part-time lecturer, and lifelong animal lover. After realizing that her habits didn’t quite line up with her beliefs, she became vegan for the animals in early 2017 after watching the documentary “Terra”, which focuses on humanity’s deteriorating relationship with nature and fellow living creatures. To this day, Amira continues to advocate for the animals in classrooms, published articles, on social media, and as a volunteer for the Jakarta chapter of Anonymous for the Voiceless’ “Cube of Truth”.
