A Playlist From The iPod Of A Middle School Fangirl In 2013

Before I hop into the playlist, here is my small ascension to a teensy soapbox.

As a former child, I have the expertise to say that everyone, (boys, girls, and all in between), is unbearable in middle school, myself being the textbook example. Hormonal transformations compel us to latch on to topics and hobbies, obsessively. When girls went through this fixation phase, the name for it was 'fangirling', which was a common discourse in which men trivialize the interests and tastes of young women. My usage of the word is not out of patronizing internalized misogyny but a connotative linguistic choice to lean into Tumblr-nostalgia and give you an idea of my personality at 12 years old. That said, let's crank up our moms' radios and relive the (acne-gilded) golden days.

New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.
