throwback thursday: jewel

I got my first CD circa 1998, shortly after my aunt gifted me my (at the time) most prized possession: a boombox. I was enchanted. I never thought I could own something so precious, and so versatile. You're telling me that this one contraption could play cassette tapes, tune into the radio and play CDs? That was too good to be true.

So for my birthday, my sister gave me my first CD: Jewel's "Pieces of You". I just thought Jewel was this rando Canadian with a vaguely yodeling voice, but she turned out to be so much more than that. First of all, she's from Alaska, and I seriously had this entire CD on repeat for the next 4 years. "You Were Meant for Me" was the first song I ever learned in my guitar lessons. The CD also had some pretty--shall we say--educational poetry in the CD liner. Don't believe me? Look it up.
