The Music That Fuels Me

Music is everything to me. If I’m not binge-watching TV shows, I’m probably playing music. Spotify has become my BFF while in my service. There isn’t a day that I don’t play music because it offers a great outlet for whatever mood you’re in.

When I have access to good wifi, I like to create and add on to playlists. I’ve decided to share with you all my top 4 playlists I have made during my service. Each one is unique and pretty much gets played at certain times. So what’s in my playlist rotation right now?
