My Most Nostalgic Playlist - Shreya Sachdev

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all having a nice day. For today’s blog post, I thought I would share my most nostalgic playlist with you guys. I actually have eight different playlists that I created before each academic year started when I was growing up in school, and this is a tradition that I’ve done since I was eleven years old. There are times when I absolutely love listening to my old playlists because it reminds me of the times that I felt when that specific school year started and it just brings back so many memories. Honestly, if you’re about to start a new school year, going on a vacation, or starting a new job, then I would really recommend creating a music playlist and then listening to that playlist for a couple of months. Then, when years go by you’ll have that playlist saved on your phone and you’ll be able to listen to it anytime you want and remember the way you felt when that new job started or the day you left to travel around the world. Now that I’m entering college, I plan on making a music playlist with a bunch of the songs that I’m listening to currently so that I can remember how I felt during this time years from now. But more importantly, going to college also means that I want to be able to remember my high school memories and the way I felt before each academic year started. I’ll always remember planning my outfit days before the first day of school arrived, getting my eyebrows done, getting a haircut, and all other kinds of fun stuff. Make sure to let me know whether or not you already like to make playlists before the start of each school year or important moment in your life and then listen back to those playlists after a few months or years go by. Without further ado, let’s get started!
