This Month in Spring - June 2022

June 28, 2022 Josh Long

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Month in Spring! I'm writing this from the Big Apple, New York City! I'm here for the SpringOne Tour 2022 NYC event. This is my first time back in New York City since before the pandemic and it has been so much fun. I've been catching up with people I've not seen in years. I even accidentally bumped into people I had no idea was going to also be in town at the same time as I was. New York City is like a magnet for fun, and for fun people.

It's been a busy but blissful month since we last communed. I've been in London, UK; Barcelona, Spain; Ibiza, Spain; Toronto, Canada; Hamburg, Germany; Berlin, Germany; and now, wonderful New York City, New York.

And of course, I've got a lot more miles to go before I sleep! Be sure and check out my appearances.

Alrighty, without further ado, let's get into it:
