Hello friends, welcome to February in our little column. Now, depending on how you feel about… that holiday, we can all agree that there is one very important day in February. Perhaps some of you think it’s a needless expression of “feelings,” or maybe some of you think it’s a practice in consumerism, but I know that there is a special breed of person who can recognise in this day an outpouring of love, support, and good vibes. I am, of course, talking about my best friend Jordan Erica Webber’s birthday on the 10th of February, the most sacred holiday of all. My dearest Jordan: even though I am 5,365 miles away from you, toiling away at the altar of academia, I would never pass by the opportunity to make everything about you for one special day.
