Boyos and girlyos of all ages how are you all doing? Welcome back to the weekly edition of “Nior’s still suffocated in college work but he loves you guys so much he still finds time to host this mess”, aka Operation Boi You Better Be Grateful xD. As tradition demands, I hope you all are having a great week.

So yeah, you can probably guess the gist of it by now, still doing a bunch of finals. It’s actually kinda impressive how everything came crashing down at the same time, kinda like if that movie Final Destination met Murphys Law, it’s just ridiculous. There are papers to be delivered today, two math tests next week, yadda yadda. But today I don’t want to dwell on that because you know what? It’s Festa Junina over here!

Because I know 99% of you have no idea what this is about, allow me to quickly explain. Every June, we throw a big party in celebration of the nativity of Saint John (or so the Wikipedia says) and yeah it’s kind of a religious event in theory, but really everyone just dances and eats, and play some minigames like its the goddamn Golden Saucer. I remember I participated a lot when I was a kid because I get to dance with this cute girl that was my first love (spoiler alert: did not end well).

So ye, that got me thinking about this week’s main question:

“What are your favorite traditions/rituals/what have you?”

Guess what I’ve been playing...

Other questions may include:

  • How’s your week?
  • Favorite song to sing in the shower?
  • Name me your favorite place that doesn’t actually exists

Now go and Talk Amongst Yourselves! And if you feel like talking with some other peeps in real time, why not join the TAY Discord server? We have fun and games and don’t bite. Usually.
