Circa 2003

Of the two of us, Boyfriend is definitely pickier.  He is very particular about just about everything, which is mostly okay with me - "Sure, sure, local pasture raised grass fed organic is FINE.. you're paying, right?"  I do tend to be a bit of a music snob, but it hasn't always been that way (nor is it still.. the Jonas Brothers' discography holds a special place in my iTunes library).  Our musical preferences a frequent topic of conversation and I volunteered to make him a mix of my.. interesting music favorites from high school.  It turned out as strangely as you'd expect (and I had so much fun making it!), so I decided to share it with you all too!

I think my high school self would approve of this shoddily made hot pink graphic.  Even though I thought I was really punk rock and wore embarrassing things like plaid pants, I could still appreciate irony.  I tried to be true to the time period (yes, I graduated from high school in 2003 :oops:); some of these albums came out in summer '03 but I still associate them strongly with high school and / or I listened to the band heavily in high school so I included it anyway.

What did YOU listen to in high school?  Is it drastically different from what you listen to now?  Mine is!  I would love to see what you guys come up with!  (I mean, high school is weird and kind of awful for everyone, right?  But it's fun to remember! ;))


  1. Oh what... what did I listen to in HS... I don't even remember except that it wasn't good!
    The only musical period that really stands out in my life was when I was in 5th grade and it was all about Britney, Christina, and N*Sync :) Those were the days!

  2. Haha yesss!! The Britney, Christina, NSync days were my middle school days and it was sooo NOT COOL to be into them. I got made fun of in grade 7 for liking Hanson in elementary school :oops:

  3. He has a very valid point in requiring local and grass fed/pastured (depending on the animal) meat. It's so important to know where your food comes from.

  4. I agree completely.. but we don't eat meat, so it was just a little joke ;) I have said, though, that if I were to start eating meat again it would HAVE to meet those standards. Expensive meat!

  5. the P doesn't eat meat? What the...??

    Also, you are SO amazing with that "download here" button! Can you teach me that too? Can you be the Big Sister now? THX!
