A Playlist From The iPod Of A Middle Schooler In 2013
Start writing a post

In 2013, I was in the sixth grade. All I ever did was watch the Magcon boys on Vine and wear patterned leggings with UGGs. When I was having a bad day, nothing could cheer me up like putting on this playlist and leaning my head against the cold window of the bus around 2:46 p.m. So turn up your volume and get nostalgic because nothing truly hits as hard as pop music from 2013.

I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.
