A Playlist From The iPod Of A Middle Schooler In 2011

A reminder of simpler times.

The other day I was laying on my couch passing time on my phone, when I happened to open my iTunes Music app. No big deal right? Actually, HUGE deal! I can't remember the last time I opened iTunes, and boy am I glad I did. Looking through my playlists, it was like I had stepped into a time machine and been transported back to my middle school self. These were the golden years of my 4th generation iPod nano that my mom handed down to me when she got a new iPod shuffle.

These songs were with me at my first concert, when I was preparing myself to ask my 6th-grade crush to the dance, or when I'd stare out the window of my parents' car pretending my life was a movie (please tell me I'm not the only one). My iPod went with me everywhere. So if you're feeling a little nostalgic, here's a playlist from the iPod of a middle schooler in 2011.

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. 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.
