First Impressions: Crescent City

I’M BACK EVERYONE – sorry for the ghost. I had exam season during the whole month of December and so I made the tough call to shut down writing and focus on my grades!

The reason I reread it at this point of time was in preparation (and honor mostly) for My Calamity Jane, which was just released. So, here are my thoughts the second time around and things might or might not have changed! Additionally: this will not be a “normal and formal” review, but more of a favorite/new aspects list!
