Major Holiday Season:
one down, two to go, folks.
Transfers was bittersweet, seeing some of my best friends and hearing their final testimonies. It's a good thing there's life after death and all, because goodbyes aren't really my thing.

Watch it, love it, share it, you know the drill.
Until next time,
P.S. and yes, Sister Diener is indeed from Utah. Six for six comps. I'm starting to get a complex
