Before class I ran into somebody from my group, but I really needed to use the toilet. I had been holding it in since I got on the bus. I didn’t want to be rude like that.
We spent most of the time working on the graduation. We were told only 4 people had RSVPed so far. Only 4 people? When we started working on it I really had to go to the toilet again. I drank too much cola.
Somebody in the group asked what music we listen to. Somebody said “indie” I hate to be a downer here, but that is so vague. Actually I don’t even know what qualifies as indie anymore. Then he asked me. Not trying to be too overt about my age I said “90s music”. I could be in an old people react video. (but not elders) I listen to old music people have never heard of. Lol xox @0@ it’s hard to find emoticons that truly express how I feel. A lot of music people listen to now sounds like noise. Lots of wubs and beats dropping.
The only thing the guy could think of was old Madonna songs. He said “name a Madonna song.” The only one I could think of was “Holiday”(which is an 80s song BTW) The only reason it came to me was because I had to perform that song for a school show and told the group members that for some reason. Then he started playing “Vogue” and really getting into it. Then the teacher came in to check on us, and I really thought he was going to say something about the music.
They started playing this Early 2000s hits youtube playlist.
Alicia Keys, Leona Lewis (I remembered that song but forgot who sung it), Black Eyed Peas, Hoobastank somebody said that song reminded them of the 4th grade. What was I listening to in 4th grade? “Rump Shaker”? I think the song “Back in the day”. Yeah that sounds about right. Plain White Tees reminds me of when was a mopey 20 something year old. There was some Kelly Clarkson. I was talking about Outkast and the song “Hey Ya!”. They didn’t know what I was talking about. But when they heard the song they knew it. Justin Timberlake songs remind me of freshman year of college. His music videos were always on in the student union.
They were complaining that they needed to buy $75 worth of clothes to get free gifts and shipping. They reminded me of Weird Al in “First World Problems”. I could see him taking the poodle out of the box in my mind. The problem was the pants sizes were in ladies size; even numbers. I was trying to explain how to convert pants sizes from juniors to ladies. And inches. The easy way to remember juniors sizes from ladies is juniors is in odd numbers and ladies are in even numbers. Inches are a bit trickier because it depends on the cut of the pants and all that. Somebody else said I know a lot.
I don’t know what is in style. If you have see the way I dress IRL you’d know that. I looked like I stepped out of the 90s. Wearing baggy pants and stuff like that. Sometimes I think I dress so badly somebody from a tv show is going to pull me off the street and tell me how terrible I dress. I asked where she buys her other clothes and she said Asian fashion stores.
When I came back from using the toilet I heard “Hollaback Girl” by Gwen Stefani, and I immediately recognize the song. They don’t know how much I love Gwen Stefani. After that song a Vertical Horizon came on; “Everything you Want” which like nobody remembers. Not just from my group, but in general. That is an old song from when I was in high school.
When “Promiscuous Girl” came on it reminds me of that MadTV skit; “Syphilis Girl”. Avril songs remind me of my freshman year of college. Tried somebody’s coffee it was too strong I’m not used to it. I don’t drink coffee. I like my Mt Dew and black tea.
That song “Music” played by Madonna that is such a 2000 song. That was another song that was popular when I was in high school.
The Moulin Rouge song “Lady Marmalade” was the song from my junior prom I’m so old. I’d be even older if it was the LaBelle version from 1974. If anybody was high school age back in 1974 they’d be pretty old. Back then I was -10.
We were told we have to dress up, and we should come because they need people to make it look “fuller” Why not just take pics and Photoshop put in more people like they do on famous tv shows?
In my other groups we were asking each other’s ages. Somebody else in that group is 30. I didn’t feel so bad being an old person in the group. But I was still the oldest one. People really don’t believe I’m 33.
I got a collective “C”on that Millennials project the teacher wrote back as feedback that “the old guy” was ranting and going off track, and that the whole group needed to practice more.
When I got one of my solo assignments back I was busted for using fake names on it. I think I went a little too far by using the names of characters from the show Community.
Somebody in my other group was complaining about having to be married to their job. I wish I had that problem. Or any kind of problem relating to having a job.
With all the food we ordered I thought if nobody really comes to the event I could do what Dan did in an episode of Night Court. When he was The Phantom and ate a bunch of shrimp.
Later I found my shirts from one of those stores.
