Back to school

by The Concordian September 6, 2011
Every student feels differently when it comes to going back to school. For some students, like myself, it can be dreadful. While for others, it is full of excitement. This is why this mixtape has two very opposite moods. Side A is a bit despairing as well as nostalgic. It represents the feeling of summer ending and having to let go of the warm sun and having a free mind. Side B is much more uplifting as well as exciting. Once you get over the fact that summer is gone, you are faced with the wonderful reality of meeting new people, parties and, of course, more knowledge. So however you feel about the imminent arrival of school, hopefully you will find a song or two you can appreciate.
