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.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
