A Way Back Playback....





I had a moment of nostalgia today. I was driving in my car listening to the 90's station (90's on 9) on XM radio. And the song Wonderwall by Oasis came on. Now, I have to admit when I was in 7th grade, i loved Oasis, Wonderwall and Champagne Supernova were like the best songs that I had ever heard when i was 12 years old. So for old times sake I cranked it up, and suddenly I was having all these memories of being a seventh grader, walking down the halls of my junior high school, Centerville Jr. I was remembering people and places, and teachers. I even smiled to myself as I remembered the things I used to want to wear, like the high Dr. marten boots with shorts (ew...) I also used to want to where boys boxers under my jeans, yes thats right and its not like no mom would let me wear baggy "skater" jeans, so I wore boxer shorts underneath fitted jeans. What was i thinking? I also remember I wanted to wear like tee-shirts that said "stussy" on them and weird stuff like that, nothing feminine. It's a long way off from where I am now. I also remember my Jansport backpack and that I wrote all over it with white out, that liquid paper stuff. I wrote things like who I liked, bands I never heard of but that other people said were cool and lists of my best friends. I was enjoying having all these memories and remembering things I haven't thought about it a long time when the song ended and I realized I had arrived at Adyson's preschool to pick her up. And I thought for a second how long ago that was but how I could remember that like it was yesterday. Now I have 2 kids and all sorts of grown up responsibilities. But it was fun to think back .... so if you ever want a little trip down memory lane I suggest flipping on XM to the 90's or in Eric and his friends case the 80's. It's amazing how just some music can sure take you back....
