Unearthed Treasure: Mixtape

I have been digging through my storage unit, cleaning house in preparation for my big move to NC (yay me!). I recently came across a box containing old mixtapes that I made. While they all have fantastic names (here’s looking at you ‘Depressing Songs for Depressing Days’) and some have awesome covers, one stood out above the rest. As part of an English project in eighth grade we had to make a cassette tape or CD containing our favorite songs throughout the years. I like to think I had pretty eclectic tastes for a thirteen year old in 2000 . Here are both the handwritten playlist (score!) and the fabulously markered cover. Enjoy!
