30-Day Song Challenge: Day 12

What a trip down memory lane! Aside from school, my preteen years involved neon colored braces, scrapbooks, writing notes on Lisa Frank stationery with metallic gel pens, knitting rainbow colored scarves, butterfly hair clips, and making macrame friendship bracelets and beaded lizards to connect to my backpack and key chains. 

I also listened to a lot of upbeat pop/techno music and boy/girl bands in my preteen years!

    I came of age in the late 60s and 70s. I’ve been told that smells are the strongest way to pull up memories. If you ever wonder what we smelled like, open a bottle of Patchouli oil. Boy, does that take me back.

      Haha, this statement about smells is true though.

      I agree! I remembered a friend once told me certain perfumes reminded him strongly of his ex girlfriend. Hmm….My smells from preteen years was pineapple body sprays which I think my parents appreciated since I was a heavy sweater. 🙂

      Lisa Frank was my go to for stickers, notebooks, pencils, pens. 🙂 I loved her artwork very much, and I’m glad I can look back fondly at it.

      Thanks, my preteen self was pretty happy with them! Energy levels shot through the roof! I had a lot of hobbies to keep me preoccupied and out of trouble. 😉

  4. Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, I must be just a few years older than you! I was in highschool (or so) when these groups were a hit.

      Song choices definitely reveal your age! Although it just occurred to me that the lyrics of these bands were meant for a different age group. 🙂 I think I just liked their music.
