My Graduation Playlist

Graduation: well, I’ve been waiting for graduation for years. I’ve had senioritis since I was a freshman, which feels like only yesterday since it all went by so fast. Things were so much “harder” back then; little did I know the hardest parts were yet to come. There was losing friends, moving schools, and of course, and international quarantine. But throughout all of those days, when I felt the most alone, I had music on and my headphones in. I had Alex G as a crutch and Panda Bear as my shoulder to cry on. I had Mazzy Star as my angel and Kurt Cobain as my devil. They were and always will be there for me, so in honor of them, I have made a graduation playlist filled with all of my high school favorites.  

Here it is!

Going back and making this playlist brought me back to those small Oakland Mills hallways where I would walk from class to class. And as I made this I felt myself back in the art room where I felt most safe, or on a bus going to Hershey Park, or in the library with Paola for lunch. It was a great reflection of my high school experience and a great transition for what is to come. I hope you can listen to my playlist, enjoy it, and feel the same nostalgia that I did.
