July 2018: Death & Gospel Concerts

July 2018 was quite a rollercoaster of emotions and events, and I’m definitely glad to have a medium to recap it, because lord knows my journal has been lying unloved for a long time. I missed the recap of June and I don’t even remember most of it anymore, but I will definitely keep recapping. […]
