The Gavel Groove: December Blues

How is December here already? It hasn't even snowed in a month! If you're like us—completely blindsided by the disappearance of November—you might be starting to mourn the peace of mind you'll soon lose with the onslaught of finals in the upcoming weeks. Perhaps you're disappointed that the trees outside your bedroom window are still without a thick layer of snow. Or, maybe you're just sick and tired of the pandemic. Whatever the reason may be behind your December Blues, we've got a playlist meant for wallowing in the wintertime. Come yearn with us!
