I am officially out of school as of last Thursday. I had a monster of an art final to complete but I’m happy to report that I received full marks for my effort. Yay! We have our Christmas tree up and decorated as well. There are already some things under it too! How speedy.

With all the holiday parties last week, I’m beginning to get into the spirit. It also helps that my Charlie Brown-esque Christmas Tree has a present underneath it, and (Merry Christmas to me!) the Beard Papa’s down the street just started selling drinks with boba!

We still have one more full week of shows before the holiday lull. At the end of the week, Royal Machines (formally Camp Freddy) are doing their thing at The Roxy. Sadly, this sold out before I even knew about the name change, but if you were wondering about a Camp Freddy residency this year, there’s your answer.

Not the best time to get some minor congestion but I’ve been surrounded by sick people so I guess it was inevitable? I blame the weather.
