i am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself
i love it when a song make you think of a specific time in life.
i’ve had itunes/ipod of shuffle lately while doing work (i literally can’t think enough to make a decision) & so many songs have come on that just make me smile.
vindicated [dashboard confessional] shuffled through recently & i thought of the days in highschool when i swore i would NEVER listen to dashboard. not because i didn’t like them but because they were a trend & popular. i for some reason had this desire to be different.
i remember though, my best friend had made a mix cd (yes, pre-ipod) with vindicated on it. i actually (secretly) liked it.
one afternoon senior year we had a half day & i went over to see one of my friends at nc state (my high school was like 2 miles from campus). he was shocked when he got in my car because i had ALWAYS refused to listen to anything but country.
we watched wimbledon that afternoon & sat on tucker beach because it was strangely warm for early spring.
this is what i always think of when i hear vindicated. sitting on tucker beach, watching college kids walk to class, & being carefree.
