so of course I need to make a super dumb emo post about brand new eyes being released 5 whole years ago so ok here I go

I just can’t believe 2009 was 5 years ago. I was such a lost little kid back then and I honestly think that this album helped shape who I am and the opinions I have and the way I make decisions and I know that sounds pretty ridiculous but it’s true. I really believe that without this album I’d be a completely different person and I get how crazy that sounds but it’s okay because these songs hurt my heart in the best way possible and every time I listen to them my heart is filled with both nostalgia and a sadness at how lost I was back then.
this was the first ever paramore record cycle that I ever completely followed because I got into them in 2008 and riot and awkif were already out by then and I just remember every single little announcement about it being the most exciting thing in the world because I felt like paramore were one of the only things that made me happy back then. I remember counting down the days and it felt like christmas and I remember me and suephaa standing in hmv and listening to basically the whole thing in the shop because they were playing it all and I’d never loved an album the way I loved bne before then.
another thing I remember so well about it was getting the deluxe version with hayley’s journal from the recording/writing process with all her little doodles and commentaries on the lyrics she’d written out and I’d read through it and feel a little less lost every single time I did. I’d never known anything to be as close to what was in my heart than that and from then on everything started to make a little more sense. I really started to believe that I mattered I guess. so yeah basically, I did so much growing up during the brand new eyes era and I owe a lot to that album.

happy 5 years, brand new eyes!!!
