The gust of wind pushed past me as I stared off into the horizon. I looked through a small chain-link fence out at the grassy plains and cows grazing along the mountainside. My fingers grasped along the edge of the fence, I looked down underneath the platform, where I stood…

What a year. Or speaking for the majority of the entire world, quite the opposite. 2020 was a circus sideshow of a year, and now 2021 isn’t shaping up to be much better. Regarding myself, a variety of different emotions has flowed through my body, one of which is anger.

If you’re like me, then you’ve struggled a majority of your life in order to gain muscle and pack on a few pounds. Being a hard-gainer sucks. Yet, I see so many videos of people that are shaped like a grasshopper turn into Greek gods.

Spotify really is a godsend, in my opinion. If it wasn’t for the music streaming platform and its capability to offer new artists and music that fits your “vibe”, more than half of my music wouldn’t be in my playlists. My last showcase on Still Woozy is a perfect example…
