To reach any coastline from Uzbekistan, one has to cross at least two countries. These countries are Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, and Kyrgyzstan- and these countries are landlocked too. Lastly, Uzbekistan has the world’s largest  open- cast gold mine. The mine produces 2 million ounces of gold every year.

This weekend, take a break from sitting in your stained, ugly “comfy” pants while eating junk food and rotting your brain with terrible Tik Tok videos in which people yell “Bing Bong” and “I ain’t never been with a baddie”.  That stuff gives you “emotional damage”.  Instead, come watch the Winter Scenes this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in the Blackbox Theater at 7pm.  Tickets are only $5 for students, which is less than you’d spend on a Frappe-Choco-Latte-Grande-Pande that makes your stomach upset and leaves you jittery.  Give live theater a try.  We got jokes, we got drama, and we got thrills.  Put down the remote, or the controller, and be entertained by people acting right in front of you.  It beats mindless scrolling every time.

GOOD LUCK Students on finals this week. :)

When we come back after winter break, we will have a few procedure changes during lunch periods. We are asking all students to eat lunch in the Commons or Auditorium Lobby. We will be adding tables to both locations to assist with spacing. You will not be allowed to eat in the LMC or locker banks starting in January. Quiet study will be allowed in the LMC after you are done eating. If you need to access the extended classes or musical technique after eating, you will need to show your ID with the appropriate sticker. We appreciate your cooperation with these changes.
