#TBT – A weekly playlist – 2005

Week 5 – Stayin’ Alive! Welcome to my weekly music feature! I already have a monthly playlist on the go to promote what I’m jamming to on a monthly basis. But it’s NOT ENOUGH. Music is such a huge part of my life that I felt I needed to share more.

For those of you that aren’t aware of the #TBT situation – we’re talking throwback Thursday. We’re taking it way back. At least 10 years old. ( At the time of this post, we’re talking no newer than 2006!)

Which by the way, freaks me right out. In 2006, I was graduating grade 11, working in Edmonton over the summer, and started grade 12. For some of you, I’m sure you’re chuckling, but I can only say how what I am experiencing.

For each year I feature as a throwback, I will feature the same amount of tracks as my age that year. That being said, some years I will need to double my age (ie. 1995 I was six, and I don’t think it’s fair to only feature six tracks!)
Away we go!

This week –

Let’s talk 2005. 16 years old. 10th grade. Attitude for DAYS! Just like any other year, music was (and is) a huge part of my life. In 2004, I moved to my grandma’s house in a small town in Ontario, Canada. By 2005, I already had made friends, was working at a grocery store deli (YES friends, a DELI – yuh vegan friend used to rock the meat slicer, etc. Looking back, GROSS). I also took a trip to visit my grandma in Texas.

This year was not easy to condense down to 16 tracks, so I broke the rules again, and not only did I have to double it, I had to TRIPLE it. 2005 had so many good tracks I couldn’t get lower than 48. 😀 I wonder if there will ever be more than one post with my actual age in tracks (probably not haha.)
