Music To Turn 20 By: TwentySomething

Years ago my friend Nicole was driving us around one day during the two weeks or so between her birthday and mine. On the car stereo was a mixtape she had made to commemorate entering her twenties. I stole her idea and made one for my twentieth too thus beginning twelve years (so far) of making a cassette or CD to mark the passing of years. For my twenties, the series was dubbed “Music to turn _ by:_” with the appropriate number and title filled in (once I hit my thirties I thought I’d class it up and just go with a title). The song selection is usually based upon a mix of how I’m feeling at the time of production, how I felt about the prior year, and how I envision the upcoming year to be.
