Jewel + Everclear + Fiona Apple = Me Freaking Out

So here I am posting at 2 a.m. again. Surprise surprise. Only this time it's not a result of me getting wrapped up in a "What Not to Wear" marathon (which I do quite often because I'm a massive fan of Stacey and Clinton) or because I spent most of the day in bed (which I did today, but I was awake and chilling with Matt and Brodie so it doesn't count), but because I was working on my reading for my first week of classes. Whenever I'm trying to get into the "work zone", I always pop in my headphones and turn on Rhapsody (which I adore) and pick an album or random playlist to set the mood and keep me focused. Tonight I picked a playlist titled "Straight Outta the 90's" and suddenly I was transported back. I had flashbacks to the summer between 7th and 8th grade where I sat in my parents basement listening to Q101 and signing on to AOL version 3.0 thinking about how I should really finish that last book on my summer reading list but promise myself that I would finish it after I watched MTV's "Singled Out". My biggest concern was putting on a trendy outfit from Contempo Casuals (which I really shouldn't have worn back then) and convincing my dad to drive me to the mall to meet my friends and give me $5 so I could buy super cute earrings at Claire's and a slice of pizza at Sbarro. And snap back to reality...I'm 25 years old and a day away from starting my last year of law school. Oh, and I'm getting married in a year. Holy Crap...

How did I get here?

Wow Singled Out and Contempo Casuals is taking me back. I always get sucked in on the SATC marathons on HBO or ANTM. I'm weak to marathons.

Singled Out was the best show going. How have they not redone that with David Spade and Kim Kardashian hosting? Ridiculous.
