My love of a good playlist began in the 7th grade when I shared a Napster account with my dad. We would make collaborative playlists, which would be carefully reviewed, dissected and listened to whenever I would visit my dad in South Carolina, since I grew up with my mom in Florida. I graduated to LimeWire in the 8th grade and so began the days of discovering my own musical palette (read: emo) and giving the family desktop irreversible malware. Decent sound quality started to matter to me in high school and I hopped aboard the iTunes wagon, which I eventually disbanded in college for God's gift to Earth and my wallet—Spotify. I haven't looked back since.
As a person who has a playlist for every month, feeling and post-adolescent life event, I was very pleased when That First Year asked me to create one for their Friday Faves series. Friday is a day that tends to bring on a slew of emotions: exhaustion meets excitement, put simply. Friday is day that calls for a two chapter playlist, so I guess that's what we have here. I hope you listen and I hope you enjoy!
