Not being able to get out and do the things we normally could before the pandemic makes some feel cooped up, hopeless and full of despair.
Today I made myself a playlist of songs that fill me with hope and happiness to combat these feelings. Most of these songs I already knew, but some I had the pleasure of discovering just today.
I present my Keep Your Spirits Up playlist. If you are Spotify, you can find it by searching for my profile, pastprimepunk.
