semi-charmed life is playing and it reminds me of when i was 16 and i felt so free to be unchained from the idea of love from my ex-boyfriend who i had managed to not only date once, but twice. i remember always listening to this at the bus stop because the bus fare was free and i decided i wanted to be environmentally friendly even though it would take an extra 20 minutes. and i remember how sunlight in new mexico reached my shoulders on a summer morning, and how lightened my hair was by the end of summer. i remember the blue sky, so blue, so clear, not a cloud in sight. i think of the bliss. ah, that’s what this song reminds me of, bliss.
