A Mixtape Club and My Misery

So Robert made me join this Facebook group called A Mixtape Club. The idea is that you sign up to make a mix for someone else and the officers of the group match you with another member who signed up for that month, and then you make mixes for each other. It started in August, and I missed the boat. The theme for August was Your Life, where Track 1 was supposed to be your birth, Track 2 was kindergarten, so on and so forth, until you got to Track 20 - Death. I kind of liked that idea, and was excited to see what this month's theme was. Unfortunately, everyone kind of shat the bed this month so September's theme is "Make Your Own!" FUCK. I've gone through like twenty billion different ideas, and I finally just an hour ago settled on making a CD of songs that were released in the years since I was born. For example:

1986: Europe - The Final Countdown
1987: Guns N Roses - Out Ta Get Me
1988: Jane's Addiction - Jane Says
1989: Motley Crue - Kickstart My Heart
1990: Salt N Pepa - Let's Talk About Sex

I realize I'm not being incredibly original with these but this project is seriously sapping my will to live. I'm only signing up next time if I know for a fact that there's going to be a definite theme. And I'm not going to spend 15 stupid dollars on iTunes next time either! Next month whoever I get signed up with is just going to have to deal with a mix of songs selected from the 5 CDs I have uploaded!!!!

I really wanted to get into that group but in the end I found myself wishing that I were sending this mixes that I would spend so much time on to someone I knew. I think that's why I left.

God, I hear you. I changed my mix theme AGAIN at like 2 in the morning. Fuck. And I have yet to mail it. I better get on that or I won't have to leave...they're going to kick me out.
