So Christmas leave is wrapping up and I must say that this was the best break that I have had, hands down. Typically I’ll come home and sit there, veggin’ out, being a non-productive member of society. Although I can’t say I did anything really productive this month I did get around to see a lot of people and do a lot of different things. I got home on the 12th of December and by that next weekend I had a spontaneous decision to go see my friend Katie, who also goes to the Academy, up in Chicago. This decision probably happened in about 15 minutes, and considering Chicago is about five and a half hours away from Louisville it was a spur of the moment decision. Anyway, I went up there to go see Steve Aoki, another EDM artist, and it was probably the best show I’ve ever been too. I was only in Chicago for the weekend, then I came back home. So nothing really happened until a few days after Christmas and I went to Basslights. Another two-day music festival in Hampton, Virginia. It was an eleven-hour drive and didn’t seem any shorter than that. I went to see Pretty Light, Bassnectar, Big Gigantic, Griz, Gramatic, and A-Trak. If you don’t know who any of these people are you should probably get on it because it’s good stuff. I actually ended up going with my best friend’s friends as he couldn’t go because he wrecked his car, so it was kind of nice to mesh with a whole new group of people.
Two days before I left I got to go to a University of Louisville basketball game and sit one row behind the floor seats. If you have any idea about college basketball we’re always really good so getting to sit there is quite a treat. If you are a UK fan, well, I’m not really sorry you all are having a terrible year, better luck next year. That’s about it, I got to see my family and whatnot but I’ve probably talked about them a thousand times so I won’t bore you. If you have questions, email me at Spencer.M.Zwenger@uscga.edu.
