on getting old

i think this post has something to do with this muxtape.

over the weekend, i took bella to a few of my old high school haunts. we loaded the cart with dresses, purses and a pair of ratty old cut-off levis. the thrift stores remained unchanged, almost identical to the way it was back in the day when the best pal and I used to wander through the aisles picking outfits for our weekly Maryvale high school fashion parade.

…that was 17 years ago.

i can’t believe it.
