Songs from a past life

Do you remember who you used to be?

Can you recall the type of friends you had? (Bandos and drama-kids) What kind of clothes you wore? (Blue jeans, black shirts) What your favorite mixed soft-drink was? (Pepsi-Mountain Dew-Dr. Pepper) Who you had a crush on? (Erica Rohr, Brianne Aronson, and probably Renee Cloud, because everyone did)

Do you remember what music you liked?

See, I can remember so many little details from my life, memories of certain events, and flashes on old flames. But when it comes to who I really was, I don't have a fucking clue.

But maybe if I go back through all the things of my past, then somehow I'll recover that oldself and be able to save it. Why? Because I miss me like crazy right now. I miss how I used to be... even if he wasn't so amazing. He was good. He was great.

Here's my very own highschool musical soundtrack. All the stuff I listened to back in the day.

Yeah, that's about all I can remember. Wow... I had mostly really bad taste in music back then.

I guess you could say I was depressed?
