It’s the most wonderful time of the year

Well,  it was, anyway. A while ago. I’m late, I know. I told Edmond I’d have this post done by January and, well, it’s February 12th now. Sorry, Edmond.

Nationals 2016 (Part 3/3)

I know this post is quite late and I haven’t posted in a long time. School has been very busy (trying to get a paper out!) and I just haven’t had the time.

The last day of Nationals was also the last day of the 2015-2016 season. There was good, there was bad, and there was complicated.
