let me tell you what’s cool

I have a lot of cool things to say today but first let me tell you what’s NOT cool.  This exhaustion that I’m feeling.  Blah.  Today marks day 3 of doing the show (after two weeks of pretty solid rehearsals) and I am pooped.  I thought it was just my old age but Henry seems …

{sorta} wordless weekend

(I’m taking up another Trackstars tank/shirt/hoodie order!!  If you’re interested, please leave a comment below & I’ll send over the specs!) (thanks Kenneth – it was delish!)
