This week can be summed up in one picture:
As Christmas break approaches, this week is the first that I've truly felt like a frazzled, sleep deprived, brain-melted university student, with obnoxiously long papers to write, dry tests on literary terms to study for, and huge chunks of my philosophy textbook to try and form some semblance of understanding. This is crunch time, folks. Shifts at work all of a sudden feel like a study break, when I can talk to humans and talk about steak and wine instead of the significance of metaphor or intentionality of the human mind.
A welcomed reprieve to this crazy week was a really fun show we played on Friday- we were the house band for Campfires and Cocktails, a gala that raises money for the Neil Lovatt Memorial Foundation that pays for kids to go to Muskoka Woods. I worked at Muskoka Woods for years (the other Jess in Fitness Club Fiasco did too!), and it truly impacts and inspires youth in the most outrageous and exciting ways. FCF got all dressed up, and it was such a treat to have a great sound system and play a great venue as opposed to our usual hole-in-the-wall bars.
