When I was 16 I had a binder filled with mix CD’s in my car. This was a collection I had built entirely of gifted CDs. I loved exchanging tapes and then CDs with annotated track lists and the whole thing. On a very dark day, someone broke into my car and only stole that binder of CDs. Not the cash in my car or my pretty cool jacket – just the CDs. I really hope whoever it was enjoyed that CD of only Tegan and Sara made by an ex with a paragraph about each song tucked in behind it.
This is like a driving playlist except it’s for driving around your house – it’s a collection of moods that one might pass through in a day (or an hour) of being alone with our thoughts at home. Do you feel like you’re on a roller coaster and can’t get off? Do you feel like every single day is a ride through everything you’ve ever felt in your entire life? Have you made up entire fake lives you are living outside of your four walls?
It’s just some things I’ve been listening to and it it is also a roller coaster through genre and feelings. Maybe you’ll dance maybe you’ll cry who knows maybe you will find something new!
I wrote you out a playlist like we’re dating also I’m sorry you are also about to learn that I never use lined paper in school and I have very small writing sorry if you can’t read it. And I’m sorry if this is deeply upsetting to several of you.
