    1. I’ve been having fun reacquainting myself with old livejournal posts…fun/interesting to see the music from awhile back, and to notice the songs I still love/listen to often, and some that I may have forgotten about.

      1. Those songs you forgot and then with them floods back a million different memories too!
        Do you feel like “Yep, this is still me” or like “She’s who I was in 2004”?

      2. A little of both. More of the former actually…I tend to keep music I love as music I love for a long time. But, some of the questions/answers is a “who I was in 2004” – for sure. ANd yes, lots of floods of memories.
