You know how songs/band remind you of certain periods of your life? This past week I have been on a The Used kick. In middle and high school, I used to love them. I thought I was a hardcore/emo/scene kid when I was that age. High school is an embarrassing time for us all, so we don’t need to go into detail, we all thought we were cooler than we really were.
Well this is what The Used brings be back to. I have forgotten how much I love this band and the feelings it brings when listening to it. Yes, it brings me back to a time of teen angst and rebellion. But it was some of the most carefree, easiest years of my life. I didn’t have bills to worry about. I wasn’t living paycheck to paycheck. I had so much freedom to do what I wanted and I still believed I could accomplish my dreams. I used to think I had so many problems and such a hard life, but this was the time of my life. I just love how old music can bring you back to this point and make you happy. 🙂
Don’t judge my purple hair and typical “myspace pose”. This is what was cool back then.
