10 years, huh? Wow. My memory isn’t what it was (I blame the coconut milk) but the memories of my time on @Victorious are some of my fondest. One may doubt Sikowitz’s teaching methods but there is little doubt in my mind we have the most beautifully dedicated fans. Thx for the ❤️ pic.twitter.com/YSp5vD9ZlN
