I wake up, have coffee, get ready, wake up the boys, take the dog out, pack my bag and then finally focus my brain for school on the drive to our first day In Service.
“I need a song that will set the tone for the year,” I think or maybe I say to myself as I press shuffle. “Whatever song comes on, that’s going to be it! .”
I laugh when This Year starts to play. The Mountain Goats were recommended by John and Hank Green on Dear Hank and John and they mentioned this very song because of this very chorus.
I am gonna make it through this year if it kills me I am gonna make it through this year if it kills me
It’s not quite the mood I was looking for to start off the 2022-2023 school year, so I skip to the next song.
That’s exactly how I feel That’s exactly how I feel That’s exactly how I feel
I skip again, and again, and again. All great music, from Allman Brothers’ Soulshine to Baby Tate’s I am. But I start to wonder if maybe this year deserves it’s own morning playlist. Or, should I just keep listening to Hidden Bodies on Audible?
