Challenge #109, April 20, 2011: When I was younger, I used to love love love making mixed Cds. All my favorite, angsty,songs–full of Yellowcard and Simple Plan and Jimmy Eat World. Then about six years after everyone else, I finally got an Ipod. Bye bye mixed CDS! Now it is all Genius playlists and lots of shuffling until I find a song I like. Today, make a playlist for your Ipod, or a mixed CD for your car. Put your favorite songs at the moment, or the ones that capture your life right now. Listen to it, or don’t. I think that creating a play list can be therapeutic on its own. I will be listening to mine as I take a bus to Vienna.
