Let's make 2021 our bitch!
On this day one year ago, 2020 lay before me like a shining beacon of hope. So I can think of no better day to relaunch my website in a completely new form, and in some ways get my shit back together.
It was a new year, I had just got out of surgery, and I was so hopeful for this new year that I would kickstart in a new country where I would learn so much about music and the culture and connect with new friends. And I found them too. Never before have I so quickly found a group of people that I couldn’t wait to share this experience with. It was going to be the best year of my life!
You may think you know how this ends. So many stories from 2020 starts out this way. However, I left Glasgow weeks before the corona pandemic hit Scotland. It wasn’t the virus, but my own heart that forced me to return home. And instead of being the best year ever, 2020 became the year I learned that I am far from invincible. On the contrary, I have a body that works against me. Don’t get me wrong, it was a valuable lesson, but a lot of people tell you to appreciate they appreciate the things that put them down, and you should too. Let me tell you now, that is just bullshit. You are allowed to be angry.

If you felt like 2020 set you back and ruined your life a little bit, you’re allowed to feel that way. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re not special just because everyone had the same experience. But instead of whining to your neighbour-who’d rather be complaining about their own life, about how 2020 got you down, go out and make 2021 your bitch. That’s what I intend to do. 2018, 2019 and 2020 were all shit years for me in some capacity. 2021 will be different because I won’t accept anything else. You shouldn’t either. Let’s go out and slay together!
Best of luck to you!
