Albums Sarah Listened to When She Was 15 or Something
Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlanticism
If I had to choose one album that defined the course of being 15, this is the album. I got really mellow during late 8th grade/early 9th grade due something major happening in my life. There were times I would just go to my room, lock the doors, and just listen to this album until the noise goes away. I still get unreasonably emotional when I listen to this album even now.
This was also the time I started writing poetry which my very eccentric but supportive literature teacher recommended to send in to the literature section of the local paper. It got published a couple of times. Also some short stories of mine. I think that was pretty much the peak of my writing career. At one point I considered being a writer, but science. Ben Gibbard’s words are just so powerful and inspirational+the whole major life change thing makes good material.
Pretty much I spent every New Year’s Eve since I was 15 listening to “The New Year” because I really like the line “So this is the new year, and I don’t feel any different”
