Weekly mixtape: That teenage feeling

by admin November 8, 2010

The teenage years are such a tender and formative time in our lives, the time when we begin the painful and angsty process of assuming person-hood. A teenager wrestles with the inherent playfulness of childhood while beginning to take on the maturity of an adult. It is a time of experimentation with drugs, drinks and the limits of rebellion. High school is a training ground for socialization: for parties, romance, and gossip. On the one hand, there is the awkwardness of physical development and feelings of loneliness and rejection, but on the other hand, there is the excitement of crushes, love, and “first times.” This mix embodies the blend of emotions that characterize “That Teenage Feeling.”
