Letter from the Editor: December

Decadence   After “like, the year of just realizing stuff” (Jenner 2016), we’ve finally reached the end. December is a month of celebration. We’ve braved through the bad, reminisced about the good, and now it’s finally time to wrap it all up. December is a month of eating too much, drinking…
