AKA T-2 Weeks till I get to go to Colima for the weekend to celebrate my birthday con mis abuelitos! AHH!
Lately, I’ve been stumbling upon a ton of old music I used to hear around me when I was younger and it’s put me in a very nostalgic mood.
Bring on the feels!
Do you have any songs that take you back to your childhood?
When I was younger, every Sunday, like clockwork, mí papá would wake me up at 6 am so I could go out to Riverside with him para la leche caliente.
If you’re not sure what that is, people would head out to someone’s ranch where they’d milk the cows and we’d all drink the fresh warm milk (hence leche caliente) con chocolate y ellos con piquete.
We did that every single Sunday, but we always stopped to grab donuts. It used to really annoy me, but my dad always had the same CD’s on rotation –which included Pedrito Fernandez, Chelo, Lorenzo De Monteclaro, and occasionally something with banda in it.
I don’t think I’ll ever forget the lyrics to “La de la Mochila Azúl”.
I can’t even tell you how many times we watched Pedrito’s films either.
What did your parents listen to?
It’s funny to think how much more you start to appreciate the little things as you get older.
Sidenote–What is going on with trans rights in schools being rolled back? I.AM.NOT.HERE.FOR.IT
Trans rights are Human rights, Trans rights are Human rights, Trans rights are Human rights jfc.
Anyways before I get heated, aquí los dejo con la canción, y unas donas.
And as always, Stay chingonx y #ProtectTransKids!
