The end of the year is going fast as we race through the holiday season to the end of 2021. For all of those in school, I hope you were able to successfully put the seal on your capstone projects, ace all your finals and put another semester behind you.
A quick note on the Homicidols Best of 2021 timeline:
This coming Monday, December 20th, we will announce the Best of 2021 candidates based on your nominations and voting will begin. We will close the voting one week later, at the end of the day on Monday, December 27th. If anyone cares, Team Homicidols picks for Best of 2021 will be published the morning of Tuesday, December 28th. The final results of the community voting for Homicidols Best of 2021 will be announced on Friday, December 31st, just in time for you to celebrate or commiserate the results as you ring in the new year.
I think Christmas happens at some point during this time period as well, so if your family does that sort of thing, you may want to drop them a text or something. In the meantime, important stuff is happening like:
Fresh from the family butchers, it’s some new PIGGS !

There were about 900 new idol units formed in the last year, so it you haven’t checked out situasion before now, you can be forgiven, but I highly recommend you stop putting it off.
