Last week, Drake released More Life, and as with all Drake releases, it was an event. I looked at the Trending Topics on Twitter shortly after Drake began premiering it on his Beats One show, and something like half the topics were related to the album. I had a flight that afternoon, so I began downloading the album the minute it became available. It was going to be the soundtrack of my flight to Europe. I didn’t expect to find myself listening to it throughout the week, but I found time to sneak the album — excuse me, playlist — in whenever I could. Now that I’ve had a week to list to the album, I’ve got a few thoughts.

It’s 2:00 AM, and I’m about to lose an hour as I set my clock forward. I’ve just come through one of the most challenging work weeks I’ve ever experienced. I’ve discovered that I’ve gained ten pounds since I hit the lowest weight from my doctor-recommended weight loss a few years back. These all were somewhat challenging things to deal with, but the thing that pushed me over the edge was spending an hour arguing with an idiot I didn’t know on Facebook. It was in those moments that I realized what little control I’d been exercising over my life. I am in need of a fresh start.
